Amazing Photos of Models in Castles & Mansions by Miss Aniela.

Photographer Natalie Lennard, who works as Miss Aniela, creates lavish scenes centered around elegantly dressed models. While each image might seem, at first glance, like a straightforward luxury fashion shoot, further inspection reveals surreal details.
A canary yellow tulle gown morphs into birds, and ocean water splashes out of a painting frame.Miss Aniela’s fantastical scenes are created using a combination of on-site shoots with practical effects, along with extensive post-production.
The photographer explains that all images are shot on location with the model posed and lit in-frame. “Sometimes I do not know whether the image will be largely ‘raw’ and not require overt surrealism added,” Aniela shares, “until I go through the process to feel what is right for each piece.”The U.K.-based artist has been working as a fine art photographer for 13 years, getting her start with self-portraits as a university student.
In some works, she incorporates direct references to paintings from the art historical canon. Aniela has been working in her current style since 2011, and shares with Colossal that she has noticed a rising interest in her work from art collectors, as the lines between fine art and fashion are increasingly blurred.

A 60 year old Male Fashion Model.

I studied law but never practiced and instead worked in the movie business and advertising.
Due to personal reasons I started a new job in April 2015.
For the fun of it I decided to grow my beard thinking it would be a mess, but people said they liked it.
This happened many times and so I realized maybe I should try being a model.
I started being more careful with the way I dress and understood that maybe I had something.
That is when I went to see agencies, and that’s when my career began. I was almost 60 by then.I really love what I am doing and get great pleasure from doing it.
What else could I ask for? Maybe to work for a huge international campaign like Chanel or Dior.
We all have dreams. And this buzz could help.
Who knows.

Immortalized in movies and magazine covers, young women’s fashion of the 1920s was both a trend and social statement, a breaking-off from the rigid Victorian way of life.
These young, rebellious, middle-class women, labeled ‘flappers’ by older generations, did away with the corset and donned slinky knee-length dresses, which exposed their legs and arms.
