Celebrating the financial crisis, April’s Italian Vogue and Steven Meisel show a playful dress-up game in what seams to be either a thrift store or the messy wardrobe of a Bertolucci character.

Young models Darya Kurovska, Portia Freeman and Eliza Cummings are gorgeous in their decadent roles. Despite the fact that they are actually wearing Cavalli, Margiela or Burrbery, they still transmit that optimistic feeling that you can make smashing couture out of anything as long as you have the right attitude.

It’s not the first time Steven Meisel makes the best out of social drama. Take a look at the solemn making of the Italian Vogue War Editorial in 1998. Stats for Recession Editorials Trending: Older & Mild
