German Vogue and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS have teamed up to produce a series of images for a stunning new 2013 calendar. An impressive collaboration between photographer Lado Alexi (who has shot the calendar for the previous two years) Hamburg-born high-concept stylist Dennis Blys, and Ukrainian über make-up artist, Natalie Franz, the calendar features Swarovski crystallized jewelry and fashions by various designers. From dominatrix chic to modern Marie Antoinette, sci-fi siren to glamour goddess, and whimsical wood nymph to elegant eye candy, these glamazons project an attitude both provocative and remote.
