Flare – “A Fine Excess”

Some people love to pile on their jewelry and since it’s nearly time for Christmas, they somehow remind me of an over-adorned Christmas tree. I’m not saying it’s not okay to be a fashion maximalist, my point is you can put on everything you like and still look fashionable and not like a tacky Christmas ornament. This beauty editorial from Flare‘s December 2012 issue shows model Dolores Doll in make-up and expensive jewelry from Chanel and making her look ready for the Holidays. Fashion Director Elizabeth Cabral styled the French model while photographer Max Abadian lensed the images.
