The August 2011 Vogue Steven Meisel 'Double Take' editorial can be described as nothing else but an enchanting work of art. The subtitle for the photographic runway encyclopedia reads "The 5 best straight from the runway trends are worn two ways by eleven timelessly chic models aged 20 to 46." The shoot is reminiscent of timeless classic art portait pieces, and the styles showcased complement the drab lighting and antiqued staging that make the photos so captivating.
Arizona Muse, Raquel Zimmermann, Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr and many more star in the all-encompassing editorial, which outlines the iconic dichotomies that epitomize this season's fashion.
Implications - Vogue's role as the bible of the the fashion world is an unchanging one. Consumers look the the magazine not only to showcase the broader patterns of current fashions, but to use innovative photography to predict the future of fashion and design.
