Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova stars in a fierce Vogue US May 2012 editorial that showcases a mix of utilitarian-chic and the artistic whimsy of the 1920s. Natalia is joined in the 'Modern Times' shoot by actor Michael Fassbender.
The 'Modern Times' shoot was captured by photographer Craig McDean and styled by iconic Vogue fashion editor Grace Coddington, who selected fresh spring looks by designers including Calvin Klein Collection, Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Marni and Celine.
The artsy editorial pays homage to 'Metropolis' and the Man Ray film 'The Mysteries of the Chateau of Dice' and plays with styles such as minimalism, Cubism and early modernism.
The Vogue US May 2012 issue features Scarlett Johansson on the cover.
