The T Magazine 'Retrofitted' Editorial Stars Laetitia Casta as Bardot

Model Laetitia Casta struts her stuff in the T Magazine 'Retrofitted' editorial, an homage to Brigitte Bardot's fashion sense and overall aura. Shot by Willy Vanderperre, the photographs range from masculine to playful and even naughty -- but they all maintain that vixen-like gaze and pout that Bardot was known for.

Styled by Anne Christensen, Casta wears designers including Prada, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Nina Ricci.

Implications - This shoot is instant classic. Not only is Laetitia Casta one of the world's top supermodels, but her ability to pay homage to Brigitte Bardot with such aplomb and accuracy is almost unsettling. Credit should be given to Willy Vanderperre for making the shoot seem natural and not entirely derivative.
