Mona Lisa meets Ava Gardner

Darby Kellum is expertly styled and captured as the classic equestrian beauty by renowned fashion photographer Carlo Pieroni and his wife, Carol Wilson, at Arnett’s Gulfside Stables in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. The rustic elements of the stables and the riding boots played flawlessly off the elegance of the Louis XV settee, the stunning turquoise and pearl jewelry, and the flowing chiffon top. A very special thank-you goes out to hairstylist Brooke Miller and makeup artist Natasha Vaughan.
