In a world a world of increasing polarity there is little that could not benefit from softening. The August 2015 (yes, August) issue of Vogue Japan celebrates all that is soft, but with an edge (this is high fashion, mind) in a story photographed by Victor Demarchelier featuring Aline Weber. The Brazilian beauty is pictured wearing various powdered shades of pink and white with notable accents in black. There is plenty to savor about this story including the soft hues and sharp edges, but it is Aline Weber who makes it all worth the price of admission.
