What would you think if I told you that the girl pictured above holds a B.Sc in mechanical engineering? You'd probably ask why. I mean she's beautiful; endowed with doe eyes and legs that stretch for miles, Anastasia Gelfman Silis from Mumbai, India has the makings of a model. It's no wonder she's currently on a journey from engineering to fashion design and she is traveling down that path with ease.
Silis currently designs her own fashion line which, in my opinion, mixes sophistication with bits and pieces of high fashion. You can see a piece of her collection a week on her blog, LET THEM STARE. Not only does she show off the clothes she designs in her wonderful photo shoots, but she also gives them away.
Today, I'm going to show you some of my favorite of her photos, tell you why and if she designed something in the her photograph.
This picture is from the beginning of Silis' blogging journey. Although none of the clothes are from her collection, I love her outfit. It exudes simplicity, yet is carefully formulated to make her legs look ah-mazing. The short shorts combined with her heels and her sweater hitting just at her waist make them look incredibly long.
If you don't think this photo is simply stunning, you have lost your mind. In this picture, Silis looks like a model straight out of an ad in a magazine. Her messy, yet sophisticated, hair matches perfectly with the pompus skirt she herself designed.
Although this dress is from ASOS, Silis changed it to her liking by altering the cut of it. I think the way she can go from simple to glamorous to girly is fantastic!
The story Silis paired with her photo shoot was amazing. She described herself as a mermaid who had traveled to land and lost her tail. It was a fantastic tale;) Anyway, she designed the dress she is wearing. Isn't it gorgeous? I think it is.
Another dress designed by her outrageous imagination! I knew this would be one of the pictures I would show you all because look at how her dress flows, how beautiful the print is, how well it fits, ect. Plus, this girl knows how to pose! Once more, she looks like someone straight out of a magazine.
Simple. Sexy. Girly. Innocent. Who can be all of the above besides Silis? Not many people. She did such a fantastic job posing and prepping for this shot. Her makeup and hair is gorgeous and her dress is the latter too. A dress she made and gave away.
A boxed, low cut back on a dress? Genius, and by genius, I mean something as stunning as the reflective sunset on the ocean. Snaps for silis' creation on this dress!
You want to talk about modest in the front, party in the back, this dress is most definitely for you. Silis created the perfect day to night dress. Throw on a comfy cardigan during the day, then take it off for the big reveal at night.
And now I've caught you up to the present with her latest shoot/giveaway. She calls this the "Rihanna Blouse." She should have a new post up within the next couple of days so make sure to keep your eyes peeled!
