a character that is the perfect pinacle of purity. an angel does not exist in real life getting public transport with us or sorting their recycling out. they are above, transcending all ordinariness. @victoriassecret uses the image of angels to project a idealism of women, focusing on their figures in a sexualised way that they are still yet to fully admit to. they attach huge, eccentric wings to their models. for their brand, angels are a certain type of beauty.
angels also bear a mystery, seducing us and then disappearing. @therealpeterlindbergh shot @ambervalletta in a photography series across new york. she’s enigmatic as she casually strolls arounds the streets with her angel wings attached to her back. in the @bazluhrmann film romeo & juliet, @leonardodicaprio romeo meets @clairedanes juliet dressed as an angel. their first encounter is brief and intense. he is instantly hypnotised by her.
