It is not fresh news that the “Art meets Fashion” movement is on longer just a movement, but a trend. Brands and magazine alike are doing their very best to promote the strong liaison fashion made with art this season, and Vogue US cannot stay behind. Their December issue features Jessica Chastain on the cover shot by Annie Leibovitz. Everyone knows that Grace Coddington is the famous, ever-talented stylist behind the shoot, but we have to give our very warn applause to the photographer, as well as the model for creating a mesmerizing editorial that recreates classic famous paintings.
Even though neither the cover or the content of the photoshooting aren’t “wintery” at all, their resemblance to art are striking and they do catch your attention for sure.
The cover itself represents a famous painting by Sir Frederic Leighton, Flaming June.
The photos are homage to great artists, but, at first sight, they look simply like a normal artistic Vogue photo-shoot. Another proof that the beauty of editorials stays in the little details.
