You only need a quick glance at the title of Vogue Italia‘s September issue to get the jist. Avant Garde, it certainly is. Combining the magic of photographer Steven Meisel and Photoshop (…I mean, it has to be), we are presented with both a gorgeously haunting image of Stella Tennant and the tiniest waist in the Universe. With runway-worthy sculpted hair and an incredible play on proportions, the pair of scissors in her right hand and enormous nose ring were actually the last thing I noticed. Meaningfully menacing? Whatever the inspiration, I am beyond titillated.
