Pirates of the Caribbean 4:  On Stranger Tides has had an unprecedented impact in box office history in only a few weeks.  So who better to feature in a Social Hollywood fashion editorial than one of the mermaids?

Actress Toni Busker — a lithe, striking Michigan native who’s credits include What Happens in Vegas, I Am An Island, and The Manifesto — was recently photographed by Yann Feron in New York City.

The French photographer, who began traveling the world as a photojournalist at seventeen, has a unique ability to capture both subject and place in his fashion work.  His use of color against texture, along with a ‘pulling of emotion’ of his models — is simply stunning.

For almost a decade now, Yann has been an instrumental photographer in helping to launch careers of models, actors, and musicians alike.  Check out the editorial images of Toni below!  Click to view these larger.
