I’m kind of geeking out over this. I have been riding the Underground for roughly 14 years and have always dreamed of styling a shoot on one. Well, Vogue Italia is apparently one step ahead as their latest cover – and accompanying photo shoot – was shot on an old school New York subway train (likely to be the “R11“, a prototype for the Second Avenue line that has been over sixty years in the making).
And it’s gorgeous. (Hello, Raquel Zimmermann!) The subterranean story was shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, with make-up by Pat McGrath and set design by Mary Howard.
