COVER: VOGUE ITALIA JULY 2012 BY STEVEN MEISEL (YAASSSSS!!!)
Posted on July 1, 2012
Apologies for the lack of updates for anyone who does visit my blog, I’ve had a few personal things to deal with & have been making a bit of money on the side too…totally above board and legit of course!
Anyway lets get things back on track with the jaw-dropping and haunting Steven Meisel lensed cover for Vogue Italia’s July issue.
Six gothic styled models appear in black sheer, floating Gucci dresses in what can only be described as the Underworld’s equivalent of a playground, but these are definitely not group of little girls but a coven of witches! The image isn’t your typical heavy, dark gothic inspired shoot, instead it’s delightfully bewitching, a perfect way to ease us into the fall season and a wonderful, unexpected contrast to the covers on the shelves this month.
The full sized image is below – I would love to have seen this as a fold out cover, its positively wicked! Hats off to Karl Templar for the brilliant styling!
