Teaching a lesson in runway embellishments, the Vogue Japan 'Orient Express' Editorial is exemplary.

Runways in the fall/winter season were decked out with lavish embellishments on all garments. Perhaps the most prominent in editorials is the Prada collection, in which Muccia channeled all things decorate. For the October 2012 issue, Vogue Japan has taken this notion to a more wearable level in its stellar fashion story. The tailored embellished separates shine as they were captured by photographer Manuela Pavesi.

With pieces by Azzedine Alaïa, Berger Collection, Tom Binns and of course Prada, the story gives the ornate a twist of wearability. Model Bambi Northwood-Blyth is stunning with a polished beauty story by Tiziana Raimondo and Loris Rocchi who handled makeup and hair respectively.
