Sapphic story lines can often be overtly sexualized, but the Vogue Russia June 2012 editorial takes a different, more romantic route. Models Josephine Skriver and Patricia van der Vliet have been cast in more of a love story than a man's fantasy. Soft and subtle, there is a sorrowful tone to the photoshoot that reels readers in based solely on an emotional connection rather than a hormonal one.
The Vogue Russia June 2012 editorial was lensed by photographer Benny Horne. Showcasing lovely lingerie and lacy dresses, the photoshoot was styled by Katie Mossman. She pulled pieces from the racks of such labels as Stella McCartney, Tom Ford, Anna Sui and Agent Provocateur. The enchanting looks were completed by hairstylist Leonardo Manetti and makeup artist Stevie Huynh.
