Riccardo Tisci may be known for his beautiful designs as creative director at Givenchy, but he's taken on a new role as guest editor of Visionaire 60, the magazine's 60th issue.

Visionaire is V Magazine's more upscale and less mainstream sibling publication. The press release for the $495 issue (Yes, you read that correctly. Almost $500.) explains why Tisci chose religion as the theme for Visionaire 60: "If you don’t believe that fashion is a religious sect unto itself -- and a fast-growing one at that -- well, maybe you should pray a little harder. Need you be reminded that today’s most awe-inspiring transfigurations are achieved by supermodels, not saints?"

Some of fashion's biggest names took part in Tisci's Visionaire 60 issue. Karl Lagerfeld photographed former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld, while models Lea T and Lara Stone were shot re-enacting various religious scenes from the Bible.
