Many people swear by astrology, but even for those who don't this series titled 'Virgo' by Andre Sanchez is sure to catch the eye.

The images incorporate astrological themes into fantastically styled couture for a surreal, almost otherworldly look. It would be impossible to talk about the clothing without mentioning the colors. From glowing yellows to hazy blues, Sanchez's color palette seems inspired by the Hubble telescope.

In some of the shots, the model poses to look like a Renaissance depiction of the Virgin Mary. Her long, flowing clothes and serene expressions help to complete this look. Indeed, Virgo is Latin for virgin. Through this blurring of Graeco-Roman and Christian mythology, Sanchez achieves an elegant and surreal effect.
