La +Plus Belle is an independent, non-periodical Magazine dedicated to showcasing feminine beauty through the work of photographers from all across the World.

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 in digital version and printed on demand.

“Beauty awakens the soul to act.” (Dante Alighieri)

editor’s letter Dear Readers, Looking at the pictures selected for this issue, we realized that all of them had something romantic, somehow. Therefore, we decided to name this fifteenth issue of La +Plus Belle Magazine “The Romantic Issue”. This led us at the Editorial Team to some ideas and a question: “Have you ever wondered what lies behind the picture of a photographer?” We observe a sequence of photos related by a certain theme, but what’s the message hiding among those images? What is the photographer trying to say? I think that every editorial, from the most fashionable to the most artistic one, reflects (often unconsciously) the thoughts and the feelings of their authors. Sometimes there is also a message for sure, a dedication to someone, who will be able to recognize it, if they are a careful observer. You should try to take a deeper look to our editorials as well, wondering about the hidden messages in them! As usual, I’d like to remember that all information about appearing in our Magazine, can be found at our website www.laplusbelle.it Please, follow us also on Facebook and Instagram to keep up-to-date about what we’re doing. That’s all! Enjoy your reading Gaetano Pavano
