What do we have here-an Italian Vogue spread not shot by Steven Meisel? Scandal! Tim Walker was behind the lens for the Victorian-inspired 'Lady Grey' in Vogue Italia.

The editorial stars models Stella Tennant, Imogen Morris-Clarke and Freja Beha Erickson dressed up as royalty complete with towering powdered wigs and crowns. Jacob K styled 'Lady Grey' in Vogue Italia and it looks more like a staged spectacle than a traditional period piece.

Implications - Looking through this gallery, it's easy to be impressed with the versatility of the models in the shoot, but the real star seems to be Tim Walker. He does a fantastic job of creating a memorable shoot the same Steven Meisel would, and establishes himself as a shutterbug capable of filling those legendary shoes. Let's hope he gets more opportunities to create editorials like this. He deserves it.
