Natalia Vodianova in Vogue Italia's May 2008 Issue
(Courtesy of modelcouture, the exquisite fashion photography blog.)
This shoot caught my eye not simply because of Natalia and Mesiel's consistently ingenius work, but because of its reference to one of my absolute favorite artists: Tamara de Lempicka.
Note this photo's remarkable resemblance to her "Romana de la Salle".
Meisel's references always translate into innovative and hauntingly beautiful fashion editorials, whether it be YouTube, fifties housewives, or art deco. He is truly a favorite, as is the ageless Natalia. Bravo! And brava!
