Looking like a futuristic diva out of a dystopian short story, the Aline Weber for Numero China April 2013 spread helps to characterize style using geometric patterns and harsh lines.

While Weber can be seen in some shots physically holding the shapes, in others she is simply accented with vibrantly bold backgrounds and obscure cages. The fashion itself takes center stage with some truly avant garde designs making a debut.

With make-up by Kaoru Okubo and hair by Andre Gunn, the Aline Weber for Numero China April 2013 hits a nerve with the fashion industry; while couture clothing might look wonderful on the runway, the act of wearing such glamorous clothing can often feel constricting and somewhat foreign.
