How brilliant is this December Vogue editorial, where fashion pays homage to some of art’s greatest works? Shot by Annie Leibovitz and edited by Grace Coddington, Jessica Chastain recreates van Gogh’s La Mousmé in Alexander McQueen, Gustav Klimt’s portrait of Ria Munk in Vera Wang, Frederic Leighton’s Flaming June in Theory by Theyskens, and Félix Vallatton’s Le Retour de la Mer in Alexander Wang. Bravo!
