Art Meets Fashion

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!

    Adore the concept and Jessica is beautiful in all of them except, imho, the cover. Am I the only one who thinks her makeup and dress clash horribly with her color!?! She would have been better served in a color closer to the Flaming June version.

  24. Oooh, lawdy! Now that I’m seeing these fab spreads, I totally regret my iron discipline in not buying any of my favorite junk food magazines for the last year.
