G(o)od Save the Queen captured by Italian photographer Alfonso Papa blurs the line between tribal, intergalactic, cyberpunk and macabre queens, bringing out the strength of these female leaders. Papa shot the editorial in two parts: queens of the past in black and white and queens of the future in color. The featured models come from different ethnicities, each bringing a different style to the queens.

The ornate over-the-top accessories including a silver cage mask by Vittorio Ceccoli are for those daring enough to make a statement. Eccentric headpieces are matched with vibrant colorful hued makeup with pewter touches from icy lips to cheeks and tribal paint for an exuberant touch. Stylist Manuela Mezzetti uses garments by Cristiano Burani expressing a regal elegance of a refined contrast between past and future, allowing us to identify a common thread through the editorial.
