Young models, and socialites, grabbed the March 2009 editorial of W Magazine.

Shot by the always controversial but brilliant photographer Steven Meisel, the “Law & Order,” editorial delivers a scenario where the young fashionistas are portrayed as delinquents, with their respective mugshots, who gamble, fight among themselves, smoke, and get involved in hot, Sapphic affairs. Needless to say, while the “wild things” create all this havoc, they are clad in fantastic designer clothes from haute couture giants including Yves Saint Laurent, Oscar de la Renta and Calvin Klein.

Among the models featured are Eliza Cummings, Portia Freeman, Eden Clark, Amy Greenhouse, Daisy Lowe and Peaches Geldof. The styling was done by Alex White. Stats for Criminal Fashion Editorials Trending: Older & Average
