There is a simple elegance about this image. We don't need to see the model's face and expression to get a genuine feel for the moment. It's not a brand new image, but manages to feel very modern.

It's beautifully captured, with the available light highlighting her party dress along with the sparkling wine and fresh fruit. The color palette as well feels fresh yet timeless.

The anonymous model, the adaptable time period and the countless celebrations she could be in the midst of make this image the perfect choice for many projects.
