Julia Saner | Vogue Italia Marzo 2011 by Damien Neva

Rare is the day when a thick envelope from Edizioni Condé Nast S.P.A. arrives on my desk and not someone else’s. Rarer still is the same day in which said thick envelope arrives that I post its contents on this page. I have seen enough Fall / Winter 2011 shows (48 to be precise), however to know that when the first name “Julia” is followed by the surname “Saner,” then I had better stop what I am doing and immediately get on whatever Ford’s Julia Saner has already done. It so turns out that what the 19-year-old Swiss has done is feature in a sprawling Steven Meisel cover story in Vogue Italia Marzo 2011. Titled “Wasted Luxury” the story places Julia in a Mary Howard-designed set wrapped in medieval tapestries and cluttered with various wildlife statues and paper lanterns. In the first below shot Julia wears a white silk crêpe dress from the Calvin Klein Collection as well as an elaborate headpiece designed by Panos Yiapanis that is made of two incandescent light bulbs, flowers, and a row of spiky bits. Julia’s other look consists of a Valentino chiffon chemise with leather details, Rick Owens hair blades, necklace by Graff, and Jil Sander shoes. If Julia looks especially glossy, then apart from her obvious glistening visage, it likely is the Spring 2011 Secret Garden Collection by Dolce & Gabbana Make Up as applied by the peerless Pat McGrath. Brilliant story that…now, what else arrived in today’s mail?

Until your issue of Vogue Italia arrives from Edizioni Condé Nast S.P.A., then please enjoy the below promotional video and pictures, and also be sure to pop over to Vogue.it to see the rest of the story.

I love this. It is so very much a modern interpretation of an old Victorian painting. Fantastic!
