Fashion photographer Ryan McGinley sets the tone with equinox-inspired warm light against the Oxfordshire woodlands for a magical mood in Dark Blooms, which was shot for the Vogue UK September 2012 issue. The hazy hues transform model Lara Stone into a modern-day forest goddess with tumbling loose curls paired with a down-to-earth middle part by hair stylist Luke Hersheson.

Stylist Francesca Burns creates a story full of potent winter florals, from the dark print of Gucci to the peony-colored creation by Alexander McQueen for AW 2012, while embroidery from Valentino adds a retro touch. Conjuring up images of British artist Sir John Everett Millais's painting 'Ophelia,' Stone floats in the water of the swamp, encouraging you to channel your inner mother nature.
