The first time I ever laid eyes on the work of iconic fashion photographer Chris Nicholls (header photo and photo 8) I've found some reason to blog about, pin on Pinterest or post this fabulous editorial called, An English Rose.  These magnificent gowns here are probably a shade off actual taupe and more like beige, but golly gee after lighting and retouch they sure fit in beautifully with the taupe palette.  Taupe is a neutral that in my experience pretty much rocks for everyone . . .

This color is gorgeous and I must have the earrings...I love how fashion has taken a turn with us, introducing nudes and pastels again. This taupe is actually a rather stark contrast to the lighter pallets we see...And I am infatuated.
