Referencing everything from Amazon warriors and mythical Norse Valkyries through to World of Warcraft and Avatar, US Vogue rolls a dozen cultural and historical references into one editorial for their March 2010 issue (bordering, even, on the geeky?). And the result? It’s pretty much an ultimate depiction of the trend as predicted: Ancient meets future warrior, with a heavy injection of tribal. Daria Werbowy pulls off the warrior theme without blatant ferocity, but with the right amount of litheness and intensity.
View the rest of Daria’s shoot below; and keep an eye out for practical ways to put together warrior looks – perhaps sans the Rodarte-style warpaint.
