The Raquel Zimmerman Vogue China August 2011 editorial is the perfect example of the magic that can happen when you pair one of the world's top supermodels with a wardrobe that seems to be the complete opposite of what she normally wears in editorials and campaigns.
The Raquel Zimmerman Vogue China shoot was captured by 30-year-old Belgian shutterbug Willy Vanderperre, and he shows why he his name has made it to the top of the rolodexes major fashion brands like Givenchy, W Magazine and Dior Homme. Vanderperre captures Zimmerman looking disaffected, intense, and mysterious while decked head to toe in leather looks from Lanvin, Prada, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang, amongst others.
My favorite image from the Raquel Zimmerman Vogue China shoot features the 28-year-old Brazilian beauty standing in a tight, black leather dress fronted with a zipper, elbow length black gloves, black tights, and stylish black boots. The look is completed with black-tinged lipstick. Zimmerman's face shows an ease, comfort and disassociation with her environment, and the shot and outfit perfectly encapsulate the theme of the editorial.
