For those of us who think we’re a little on the tough side, who’d like to believe we don’t get suckered in by cute fluffy kittens, it’s only when those stupidly adorable creatures are placed right in front of us that we realise we’re not immune. We may not have cat calendars and paw-print mugs strewn about our office spaces, but when they’re tiny white balls of fur that look more like toys than real life creatures, well, how can you not melt like ice-cream on a hot day?
It’s not the first time I’ve come to this realisation (the other being this shoot for Marie Claire China). In this editorial it’s not just the litter of snowy white felines that makes the shoot stand out, though, but also Constance Jablonski, styled with a 1960s kind of glamour. She’s the sex kitten to contrast the literal kittens.
Styled by Elizabeth Sulcer into shiny, voluminous glamour ensembles, and photographed by Greg Kadel, the shoot appears in Vogue Italia’s November 2011 issue.
