Including Catwoman, there are some pretty awesome female superheros out there, but Urban Glam by Stephane Sednaoui suggests another with the potential to change the face of the urban jungle. Capturing action shots of his niece Elisa Sednaoui, the photographer channels Spiderman in the body of a leggy woman.

Snapped in a dark monochromatic color scheme, this editorial fits the theme of a nocturnal watchwoman. Clinging to buildings, entangling to structures and casting webs gives this elegant vigilante a skillful sexiness. Clothed in tight-fitting black garments, the supergirl leaps, lunges and stalks her street scum prey, keeping surreptitious order in the city by night.

Urban Glam by Stephane Sednaoui is featured in the March 2011 issue of Vogue Italia, reminding readers of how fashion can create a character.
