I vote for Agua Cliente featuring Coco Rocha. She looks otherworldly and ethereal; a perfect water nymph. At the same time, it is very simple and accessible, shot in a bath tub with flowers. It seems they really thought about how the water and light would effect the clothes and it worked really well with all the floaty sheer fabrics like second skins and the use of many hued garments especially the dashes of dark ones like mysterious seaweed.It is seductive, sweet without being saccharine, and perfect for spring.

It's funny--I'm a diehard Vlada fan, but my vote here actually goes to Siri. Those lovely aqueous colors and poses are just fantastic. It could also be that Balenciaga suit that's got me in a fashion tizzy...or perhaps those bright blue hair extensions (paging the sisters Mulleavy!)! Plus--let's face it--the idea of sneaking into an indoor pool for an illegal midnight dip is so very Gossip Girl. Gotta love it.

The photos of Coco immediately reminded me of the character of Ophelia (Wiki Ophelia and you can see the way the flowers surround the body). Although beautiful colour contrast and a popping look, the sea nymph looks too confined and almost captive - like she is struggling to get out.

Photos of Siri are dark and mysterious. The blues and blacks give it a very 'marine' feel even if it weren't shot in a pool. It is the obvious and sometimes overpowering background of the pool that turns the sea nymph into more of a confined animal. Especially the last pic of her wistfully looking at her reflection.

So, my favorite is the second group, with Vlada. Not all the pics are great (IMO) but the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th pics all capture the look of a mermaid just washed up on shore. The freedom of the 'open ocean' is even more pronounced when compared to the confines of the bathtub and the pool in the other two groups and almost by definition I think that sea nymphs must be free. So this group captures that freedom :)

I adore the photos of Siri. I am never let down by her inexplicably enchanting beauty and grace. She envisions the true serenity of a water nymph and captures the pure calm and tranquillity that embodies the spirit of water. Although I admire Coco and Vlada, I think Siri stole the show with her elegance and poise, hands down.
