Hedi Slimane has been all over the fashion radar for his work at Yves Saint Laurent, but it appears he hasn’t left his passion for photography behind. For Vogue Russia’s January issue, Slimane shot the lovely Ms. Lara Stone in his preferred black and white. Though some forum members found the image to be a bit boring and expected (especially with Vogue Russia’s oft-used red text and masthead), most conceded that the cover is striking.
“That is simply a gorgeous cover! I pretty much love everything about it,” Miss Dalloway commented.
“Lara + Hedi = Love,” lelaid declared. “I have high hopes for this editorial. They better not eff it up,” he warned.
Iluvjeisa simply described the cover shot as “beautiful, serene…”
Say what you want about Slimane, his fashion designs, and his photography, but he and Lara are indeed a great combination. Though, I suspect whenever Lara is part of the equation it makes for a good combination.
