ESTHER HAASE photographs a MADAME FIGARO cover story with actress Carey Mulligan in the Dior S/S ‘21 Cruise collection

Fashion and celebrity specialist ESTHER HAASE photographed the MADAME FIGARO cover story with actress Carey Mulligan, clad in the Dior S/S ‘21 Cruise collection. Also on the team was AD William Stoddart, Fashion Editor Agnes Poulle, as well as Emma White Turle for make-up and hairstylist Halley Brisker.

“I felt so honored and happy when I was asked by Madame Figaro to shoot Dior’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection with one of the most wonderful actresses of our time. I adored her so much when she played Daisy in one of my favorite movies ‘The Great Gatsby’ alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. It was so magical to experience her multifaceted expressions through the lens of my camera, absolutely fascinating. Can’t wait to see her in her new movie ‘Promising Young Woman’. Thanks so much to the whole team!”

Carey Mulligan played in the British drama ‘Suffragette’, which portrays the beginnings of the women’s liberation movement in the UK and also made an appearance alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘The Great Gatsby’, the 3D literary adaptation of the novel by Francis Scott Fitzgerald. She is now appearing next to Ralph Fiennes in the drama entitled ‘The Dig’, and can be seen in the upcoming thriller ‘Promising Young Woman’.

The Dior S/S ‘21 Cruise collection celebrates the traditional art of Apulia. From the fairy-tale aesthetic of the luminary, expressed in colorful patterns, to wild flowers by artist Pietro Ruffo or even finest accessories, bags and shoes made of perforated or crafted leather, the fashions designed by Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri are an ode to the nature and landscapes of southern Italy.

Christmas 2020 as a PARTY FOR TWO – the 18-page ‘How To Party Without A Party’ editorial for ICON magazine, photographed by ESTHER HAASE at Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg

ESTHER HAASE presents us her fashion special HOW TO PARTY WITHOUT A PARTY here on GoSee for the turn of the year. A shoot à la Esther. The celebration took place, including photography, at Hamburg’s Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten and at Restaurant Nikkei Nine. In a convivial atmosphere – and, of course, in accordance with all hygiene regulations.

Front and center: the dream team Kim Riekenberg, Tim, Flora, Dennis Loebach, Max PAUL c/o ICONIC, Luca Jamal as well as Hamburg-based advertiser Nane Mundt, whom Esther has been wanting to stage for some time. Not to mention Baby Philippa – the photographer’s godchild was allowed to join the party (imaginary).

ICON, represented by Inga Griese, writes : “We have all become familiar with the home office, but a home party? If we can’t go to the celebrations, then they have to come to us… Getting all gussied up again, with the newest looks from the Fall/Winter collection is certainly something to see. And causing a bit of Christmas chaos at home alone or as a couple shouldn’t be that big of a problem. Cleaning up all by your lonesome the next day feels almost like in good old pre-pandemic times. Most importantly, we can keep in touch,” Esther would like to take the opportunity to wish you all Happy Holidays with your loved ones. Of course, adhering to the common rules of distancing and decorum.

ESTHER HAASE : ‘Paula’ – an homage to painter and expressionist Paula Modersohn-Becker, in a stylish production for DIE STILISTEN, photographed with Laura Schuller in the artist colony Worpswede

Fashion photographer ESTHER HAASE realized a beautiful homage to painter Paula Modersohn-Becker for DIE STILISTEN. Serving as the location was her former studio in the artist colony Worpswede. Paula Modersohn-Becker was a German painter and one of the most significant representatives of early expressionism. In the almost fourteen years she was active as an artist, she created 750 paintings, about 1000 drawings and 13 etchings.

“For more than 100 years, the artist colony Worpswede has been a place in which the freedom of views has led to new perspectives. Even an outing to the currently picturesque overcast landscape helps to clear the mind. And for the strong looks of the new winter collection, it offers a scenery fit for a masterpiece,” is how the colony is described at DIE STILISTEN.

“We shot in the studio of Paula Modersohn-Becker with Laura Schuller. The idea to create an homage to incredible painter Paula came to us after we were invited to the birthday party of my beautiful and longest friend Sibilla Pavenstedt just next door to Paula’s original studio...” Esther tells us about the production. Styling was in the hands of Silja Lange, with hair & make-up by Agnesha Kollien.
