The US Vogue Houthouse Flowers editorial puts models Carolyn Murphy and Karen Elson on display within a science fiction-esque indoor garden. The two appear to be entirely possessed, a product of their skills and of photographer Steven Klein's mastery.
The critically acclaimed stylist Grace Coddington oversaw the mod 1950s apparel that has now come to characterize Hothouse Flowers. Elson and Murphy are found dripped in chunky ankle boots, a-line dresses and coy overcoats, outfits that one could expect to find in a standard Mad Men episode.
One of the more memorable aspects of these Klein snapshots is hairstylist Julien D'ys' work. D'Ys executed bold bouffants, towering above the heads of the women in strips of black and red.
