This is probably one of my favorite Vogue shoots ever, because it is the perfect embodiment of a lot of amazing people, styles, and ideas coming together. The adult take on a childrens tale manages to be both serious and lighthearted, without a confusing clash of the two realms. To say nothing of the fact that some of the styles represented in this spread are only just catching on now in mainstream fashion. Truly some of the best work Vogue has ever done.
Your Golden Girl,
