The selfie has had a big year. The word was added to the dictionary, the Oxford dictionary has named it their Word of the Year for 2013, and beauty guru Michelle Phan released a tutorial on how to take the perfect selfie that went viral. And now, it has officially entered the world of high fashion by way of this editorial from ELLE Poland.
In this spread shot by Agata Pospieszynska and styled by Ina Lekiewicz, the models take candid selfies in the streets, each of them holding a funky phone case that is making us all at Haute Talk a little jealous.
The models taking their own pictures while getting their picture taken is genius, and we found merging fashion with social media in this shoot to be a very interesting idea. Some flash shy smiles and others give model pouts, but either way, the concept comes out flawlessly. We especially liked that ELLE Poland decided to include a selfie that the model holding the HELP clutch had taken.
It’s rare that you come across a photo shoot that’s relatable, but this one hits the nail on the head — nearly everyone has snapped at least a few. Though shooting one in midair? That’s something we have yet to try.
