He is a legend behind the lens, the ultimate connoisseur of captures, the pro of Polaroids, and if you're not totally convinced, all of the Steven Meisel snaps prove that the famous fashion photographer is the best at framing beauty on film.

Meisel is the brilliant mind behind the majority of the Vogue Italia covers since the late 80s, which is a pretty snazzy qualification to have on a runway-lovers resume. Having created captivating ads for the likes of Balenciaga, Calvin Klein, Dior, Jimmy Choo, Prada and Louis Vuitton, Meisel is the man responsible for making magazine magic.

All of the Steven Meisel snaps are pure artistry as it definitely takes a special talent to turn many of the basic teeth-baring models he catches saying "cheese" into coveted couture campaigns that say "chic".
