In this editorial for Vogue Turkey June 2011, art director and photographer Ahmet Polat proves that all a photo shoot needs for instant drama and cultural juxtaposition is to infuse a woman into traditionally male settings. Model Julia Saner plays the part of a confident, self-assured woman to a tee, sauntering casually through a gambling hall, fish market and auto repair shop in Istanbul.

Stylist Mary Fellowes chose vibrant outfits from fashion houses like Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu and Jil Sander. Each piece showcased Saner's feminine physique, whether it's her slim arms or mile-long legs.

I especially love the first image in the editorial, which takes place in a barber shop: Sander sprawls her legs up on the counter and leans back sassily, giving the two older men in the room a run for their money.
