Just in case you’ve forgotten that Selita can slay a photo shoot when she’s not rocking a Victoria Secret runway, she’s showing off her dark side for WestEnd Magazine. In the S&M style shoot, she turns a barn into her personal dominatrix dungeon, as she makes model Nick Madrid her sex slave.
Derek Warburton, the Fashion Director of WestEast who styled Selita, said the shoot was more about the strength in women who are slowly taking over society. “Less and less our society is being dominated by men, especially one in the public eye…I wanted to showcase Selita in really cool and empowering fashion.”
Photographer Christopher Logan said preferred a model who was not only an inspiration to women, but who would be powerful enough for the transformation. Selita won out, even though she was cautious at first.
I wanted to feature an inspiring woman whom I not only admire in the world of fashion, but also reaching beyond the velvet rope to assisting others.
Derek and I started thinking of strong, powerful women we love, and Selita came to mind. [She is commonly known as] a bikini model on a beach back lit in warm amber light. We knew going into to this shoot that it would be a lot of hard work to pull off. She seemed cautious at first. we were taking her out of her usual context to show an under-explored facet of Selita’s character.
She looks hot! Werk girl!
