Anna Selezneva looks so gorgeous in this shoot for the latest issue of Vogue Russia that I’m willing to ignore the deja vu that gently tugs at the back of my mind. The styling – in this instance by Geraldine Saglio – just doesn’t seem entirely new. Thinking back that’s probably because it might as well be a direct sequel to last month’s shoot starring Daria Strokous, who also posed in a mix of floating evening gowns and masculine tuxedo-inspired suiting, and who also hid mysteriously under the wide brims of floppy black hats.
Perhaps it’s a purposeful follow-up – I can’t really say without being able to read Russian. In any case September’s issue adds a new wash of colour from orange Hermes leather to Tom Ford’s rich purple lace gown. So deja vu aside, it’s more than worth a look.
