top FENTY PUMA BY RIHANNA skirt GLAMOROUS

True story: In August we shot a story for a one-pager print feature (coming to newsstands near you come October – more on that later), which involved a few extra bodies in the studio than usual. You know, stylist, hair & makeup, light people, sandwich people, champagne and massage people…etc, the whole jazz. Halfway through look two, the theme of the shoot was determined: COULD WE TRY AGAIN THIS TIME WITH SHINI’S DAMN LEGS CLOSED, because apparently this harlot kept posing with her legs wide open like it’s peace sign.

Glasses – Ferragamo. Dress – Lavish Alice.

But here’s the dealio kids: posing like a d-bag, or Mrs Duke Nukem, makes one feel powerful, confident, brave even. Zalando, you asked me – how does fashion help be who I want me to be? Uncross your legs and look straight in the lens – send that glare down the barrel, let it parkour up the internal mirrors and poke the cameraman’s eyes while growling I’VE GOT BALLS OF STEEL. This will genuinely help getting past any insecurities, trust me. You’ll be able to wear anything and feel confident in anywhere. Like Fenty in a ballroom in South of France. Or don’t fit in. Alas, imperfections make the best charm.

No ragrets.

Top – 3.1 Phillip Lim. Trousers – Just Female. Heels – Bally.

  13. Stunning photography as per usual.

  14. Dude, I never thought I’d see you wearing something by Rihanna but you make it work. Gorgeous as per the usual.

  15. Ugh yes TOTALLY. I posted a picture a while ago of me in lingerie like staring the camera down with my legs apart as hell and it felt like so good to not have to be cute and “respectful”. If dudes get to take up all the space in public by sitting like that, I can look that way too.

  18. I totally get you about the power pose, I love when women pull it off, it looks so sexy and strong at the same time, not at all harlot-like!

  19. Girl you have got balls of steel for sure! I am loving all these looks, they’ve got such a ‘bad ass vibe’ about them – but I am cracking up at the idea of someone yelling, “Let’s try that again, this time with Shini’s legs closed!” (In front of the massage ladies? gasspppp)

    You really are an inspiration cause you are always so true to you! Love that, and this entire post with its bad ass vibes

    CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU IN PRINT!

  20. I used to feel so embarrassed that I never kept my legs crossed when I was younger. Now that I’m older, and know at some moments I probably *should* cross them, I just choose not to, haha! I’m glad I’m not alone in that regard. Love the shots as usual, Shini! Thanks for sharing :)

  40. This is real Fashion! I really enjoyed the different styles and especially the pleated grey skirt! Working for an events promotion company in London where fashion events are quite a popular category, I am often attend great fashion events, but I still feel that it can be hard to keep on track with the trends. After discovering your insights it definitely helped me look in the right direction!

  41. Great post!
