MAGAZINE THE CHRISTMAS ISSUE VOL.1 D E C E M B E R 2 0 1 5 - Nº 9

La +Plus Belle is an independent Magazine dedicated to showcasing feminine beauty through the work of photographers from all across the World. Our vision is to retain a keen focus; exploring a diverse variety of photographic aesthetics with every issue. Featuring both emerging and established photographers, La +Plus Belle Magazine is a dialog between creative minds from around the World, aimed to inspire through our high beauty, fashion and artistic editorials. We focus on the visual expression of feminine beauty, even unconventional and unexpected, rather than the written word. The Magazine is available both in print and digital version. It’s strictly forbidden to reproduce all or part of the contents without the written permission of the Editor-in-Chief. All images published are property of their respective authors.
