Édith Piaf famously warbled on about life in pink, the French title of which is a veritable catchphrase for all things romantic and French. Pink also serves as the controlling shade in a new Marie Claire Italia editorial featuring Alina Baikova photographed by David Bellemère. Titled “La Via en Rose,” an obvious riff on the Piaf original wherein the street replaces life, the Elisabetta Massari-styled story lavishes the color theme with characteristic richness. Alina wears (top) a ruffled maxi dress by Dsquared2, which captures well the overall atmosphere of this excellent story. Je vois la via en rose…
