The 'Mechanics of Style' editorial was featured in the March 2012 issue of Baccarat Magazine and had a geeky twist to it. The photos were taken by Olaf Mueller and included Laura Weyel posing as a posh, upper-class citizen.

What really made these photos quite bizarre was the fact that Master Chief from the popular video game series, Halo, was posing as Weyel's man servant. While Master Chief is usually taking down aliens, he has been reduced to pouring tea, operating a massage chair and putting on jewelry. It also appears that Weyel and Master Chief have an intimate relationship so it would seem that he is being whipped pretty hard.
