Anti-Recession Chic Blooms in Vogue Italia

In a spread that both celebrates and mocks the finer things in life (music, bouffant hairdos, a perfectly behaved parade of Stepford children and a fluffy white Dr. Evil cat), Toni Garrn is at her best as an elegantly stern piano teacher.

Aptly named 'High Glam,' the old money editorial appears in the March 2010 issue of Vogue Italia, with Miles Aldridge’s sharp photography capturing the stiffness of traditional upper class life, while Alice Gentilucci’s skillful styling allows the dramatic excess shown to remain on the classy side of the elegance/vulgarity continuum.

If piano teachers can afford the likes of Armani Privé and Dior Haute Couture (not to mention enough diamonds to purchase a small country) we commoners best be learning to tickle the ivories.
