A museum filled with the taxidermy replicas of wild and exotic animals might not sound like the most exciting setting for a fashion editorial, but that's exactly what you'll find in the Tao Okamoto Numero China shoot, for the magazine's latest issue. Captured by John-Paul Pietrus, Tao poses in luxurious gowns and furs that seem to imitate the animals around her.

Styled by fashion editor Tim Lim, the haunting museum shoot highlights some of the most luxurious winter pieces from the likes of Christian Dior, Tom Ford, Givenchy and more. Although I'm more of a faux-fur enthusiast myself, the pieces are incredibly stunning, especially when paired with bold black heels sure to garner attention on and off the runway.

For a radical change from your standard winter wardrobe editorial, don't miss the Tao Okamoto Numero China shoot.
