The Vogue Russia December 2012 issue features a dynamic editorial captured by none other than the kaiser himself—Karl Lagerfeld.

It is mesmerizing to see Karl Lagerfeld show off his talent as a photographer adding yet another skill to his large list of expertise. Models Toni Garrn & Linda Evangelista take on a makeshift fashion dichotomies in which opposites clash. The blonde and brunette each show off a different style ethos seemingly seducing the dapper male model. Each one brings a distinctive refined elegance that practically jumps off the page with opposing styles.

Fashion houses such as Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Albertta Ferreti fight for the spotlight as if to radiate the posh duplicity of this spread as styled by Ekaterina Mukhina.  In this Vogue Russia December 2012 feature, it is evident that duality makes for a deliciously decadent editorial motif.
