The W Magazine May 2012 Stella Tennant photoshoot presents a glamorous, yet grungy take on fashion. The images are set in an anonymous home, showcasing blue art deco couches and an elongated black-carpeted staircase. The British model sports an elevated pompadour with dark cat-eye makeup, a choice that made the beauty's features pop all the more.
While Tennant is found in long formal gowns and dainty dresses with high neck lines, she is also all the while clad in combat boots. The buckled footwear provides a stark contrast with the scene which is otherwise wholesome, imbuing the spread with a classic bad girl vibe. And though this twist is unexpected, Tennant pulls it off with ease, displaying the harmony between modeling and artistic direction.
