A bathroom may seem like an odd choice when it comes to settling on a backdrop to highlight the exquisite gowns featured in the Rodarte Spring 2012 Couture collection, but that is exactly where the lookbook was shot. The gritty, almost candid shots offer a unique contrast to the opulent fashion designs, which happened to be inspired by Italian frescoes, specifically the art of Fra Angelico.

Starring up-and-coming fashion icon and actress Elle Fanning, the Rodarte Spring 2012 Couture catalog was shot by photographer Bill Owens. The photo shoot specifically took place in a not-so-glam bungalow in Los Angeles, showing that despite the designs and even the price tag, these two designer sisters always have the real woman in mind.
