i-D Magazine's September Spread is a 'Thriller'

He’s inspired everything from hats to rosaries, so it’s only [super]natural that Michael Jackson would inspire fashion tribute editorials, or what I like to call "Michael Jackson editorials." One such editorial is the "Thriller" spread in i-D Magazine’s September issue.

Shot by photographer Emma Summerton, this particular editorial is unlike other Michael Jackson editorials in that it is less explicit in its homage to the pop star (i.e. no red leather jackets or a single gloved hand). Featuring an all-star line-up of models including Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, Arlenis Sosa, and Sessilee Lopez, stylist Edward Enninful created creepy-but-beautiful underworld-esque outfits: loads of leather, burn-out velvet, studs and lace, black elbow gloves, and of course, thigh-highs.

Admittedly, there is one photo that likens itself with other Michael Jackson editorials in candidness. Not that you can’t spot it a mile away, but it’s the one where Sessilee rocks a gigantor wig with a ruffled shoulder body suit.
