Petra Nemcova for Marie Claire Mexico

Cover Girl Petra Nemcova
Marie Claire Mexico
June 2013

A Czech supermodel on a Latin American magazine cover, in a range of French and Italian clothing...such is the global fashion village. The stunning Petra Nemcova is lensed by Juanjo Molina for a summer style spread in the June 2013 issue of Marie Claire Mexico.

The checkered trend continues...Petra is sunny in a yellow and white block print cropped coat and maxi skirt by Louis Vuitton, for the accessories cover of Marie Claire Mexico.

On the main cover, Petra is fringed in a metallic pewter flapper-esque dress by Nina Ricci.

The 33-year-old beauty is decked in a chocolate brown leather and cotton dress with eyelet belt and imposing knee-high gladiator boots, both by Salvatore Ferragamo. She carries a woven leather bag by Bottega Veneta and wears shades by Lunettes Kollektion.

Styled in a look by Lebanon's most famous export, Elie Saab - Petra is elegant in a striped cotton and lycra maxi gown, splashed with a paint tray of bright shades.

Springing into summer, Petra is vibrant in a turquoise, purple & white silk mini dress with oversized sleeves by Gucci. Her matching metallic leather sandals are by Jimmy Choo.

A difficult look for anyone to wear, but for supermodels, a forest green floral emblem Prada coat paired with a brassiere and knickers is like a walk in the park. She holds a violet leather Kara Ross clutch...because such a look wouldn't be complete without one ;)

The summer jumpsuit trend is conveyed by this hippie-chic pocketed paisley print Etro look. Petra's burgundy leather bag is by Miu Miu. Her futuristic yellow and gold metallic sandals with perspex heels are by Michael Kors. Do you think this pair will ever catch on?

Petra is beautifully romantic in one of Alice + Olivia's most popular SS13 dresses - a white embroidered silk frock with feather trimmed A-line skirt. Her interesting pair of black patent leather and see-through mesh shoes are by Jason Wu.

Although this was not one of the stand out looks to me from Chanel's Spring/Summer 2013 range, I love the styling of this multi-coloured tweed dress in the photo shoot. The nipped-in waist does a world of difference, so does the endearing straw hat from Forever 21. Her necklaces are by Massimo Dutti, with a black leather bag by US based designer, Kara Ross.

One of my personal favourite runway looks from Blumarine - a fluid chiffon maxi dress in dulcet shades of lavender, aqua, cream and lemon - is brought to life in this cinematic shot. A classic black quilted Chanel bag accessorizes Petra's pretty summer outfit.

Which of Petra's editorial looks would best suit your own style?

Clara Natalia said...

I adore the Alice+Olivia dresses, they're so girly and frilly, which is just my style :)

Very appealing visually, Sam:)

Beauty Follower said...

Very good editorial, indeed.
I love Gucci's blue-green dress (although it reminds me of Puccis patterns)
and the heeled sandals she is wearing are super sexy!

Have a lovely week, darling :)

Jocelyn Leow said...

some of the prints are really daring and I guess it's almost impossible to wear it out. Such as the yellow checkered, I guess it's more for stage appearance rather than wearing it out for a shopping date. I love this metallic pewter flapper-esque dress. Looks damn hot on the model!

Kati said...

Thanks for leaving such a darling comment on my blog!
Love the simple white dress most, the rest is truly adventurous!

Have the best week ever,

Fashion-Bridge said...

Beautiful editorial! Really stunning gowns, but what truly took my breath away is that Nina Ricci metallic fringe dress. How flawless and perfect it is/!

Have a wonderful week dear Sam!



Bailey Schneider said...

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! Hope you had a nice weekend! I like your feature, the model is actually one of my fav, she always look so charming and refined! The shooting is great, I knew the cover but not the editorial, so thanks for sharing! The style is impressive, the one I love most is with the white dress by Alice+Olivia, how amazing it is! I think the rock Jason Wu heels are perfect matched to break the romantic mood of that! Happy Monday my dear, hugs! xo

Pip said...

Oh, I love this post! It is fun! I think I am torn between Vuitton and Ferragamo's looks for myself to be wearing! THanks so much for your comments this weekend Sam! I am a little under the weather, so thanks so much for your support! Hope you have a wonderful day! xx Pip

I didn't realise she is still working! Such a great editorial - thank you for sharing! x

Denise said...

I loved the pictures! My favorite outfits were the Gucci and the Alice + Olivia's dress! It's inspirational, and I know you always say I'm not fat, but alas, even with these pics' photoshop (that every magazine has), I wouldn't look as good as she does!!! It's fine - it's just that the dresses deserve a great canvas and she did justice to such creations!

Yuli Conversations said...

OMG these styles and prints are so me! Amazing photos!

Kat said...

wow i absolutely love her in the ellie saab dress!!! so beautiful :D
