The bewitching Manon Leloup takes center stage in the 'Nature of Couture' editorial for V Magazine Fall 2013.
Leloup dons some extravagant haute duds from fashion houses such as Dior, Armani Prive, Gaultier Paris and Atelier Versace, all hand-picked by stylist Tom Van Dorpe. Some stand-out pieces in the shoot was Donatella Versace's glittery bodice, Gaultier's Ziggy Stardust-Infused collection and a luxurious lace confection by Valentino. Her unkempt locks and natural, forest nymphet makeup was the work of Marki Shkreli and Frankie Boyd.
The lush, Scandinavian marsh is probably not the typical environment for wearing couture gowns, but Leloup makes it work. In fact, they look so good they might have you wondering about hosting your next soiree in the middle of an exotic Swedish forest.
