The declaration Go West! has long been the rallying cry of those intrepid souls seeking respite from the strictures of life back East. These two words and an exclamation mark have been appropriated various ways over the years and especially in music from the Village People to the Pet Shop Boys, but the sentiment largely remains the same. This drive toward freedom is evident in a best of Pre-Fall 2014 collections story in the May 2014 issue of Harper’s Bazaar featuring amongst others Sabrina Ioffreda. Under the aegis of the magazine’s global fashion director Carine Roitfeld and creative director Stephen Gan, photographer Johnny Dufort creates a luxurious take on this Western theme. Full-volume hair by Shay Ashual and luscious makeup by Topolino transform the already gorgeous Sabrina into a veritable Western goddess. Do you hear that? Go West, young’un!
