The Russian Vogue December 2012 issue does not disappoint in the fashionable exuberance that the publication has become known for.

Model Nastya Kusakina gives an edge of cool to this editorial piece with her icy locks and porcelain skin. She's seen in sitting rooms and salons filled with antiques that pay ode to opulence of the past. Given this decadent setting, there is an air of intriguing abandonment that was expertly captured by the lens of photographer Mariano Vivanco.

Stylist Ekaterina Mukhina outfitted the model in an array of runway pieces creating looks with a Victorian edge. Ruffled collars, bows and textured layers have a moment as the wintry season's runway favorites come to life. With its updated approach to conservative fashion, the Russian Vogue December 2012 issue is lush with classical style.
