Model Anja Rubik is a study in cosmopolitan sophistication for Pleine Lune in Vogue Paris. Photographer Mikael Jansson captured Rubik walking down moonlit streets in couture gowns and menswear-inspired suits and separates from the fashion houses of Lanvin, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.

The editorial's title translates to "Full Moon," which is an especially appropriate choice for such a gritty yet romantic photo shoot. Jansson used blurring techniques judiciously throughout the pictorial, adding drama, movement and a touch of whimsy. Jansson also juxtaposes Rubik's feminine and masculine looks by capturing the former in full color and the latter in black and white.

Anastasia Barbieri is the stylist behind Pleine Lune in Vogue Paris. The fashion editorial appears in the magazine's May issue.
