It could almost be a scene from Inglourious Basterds: the showgirl Miu Miu shoes, the period-inspired outerwear, the hotel setting. But it’s more fetishist than that. In these scenes for Citizen K magazine, Diane Kruger dons the Louis Vuitton officer’s cap to compliment sharply sexy styling by William Graper.
If there’s one thing that strikes you most about the shoot – bar for the ongoing confirmation that fetish has turned feminine – it’s how much of a difference hair and makeup can make. In some shots, you’d hardly believe it was Kruger. Tricks of post-production, or of transformative makeup? Changing one’s eyebrows does have a big impact on how the face looks, so it’s not unlikely that the strong, dark brows are responsible for the chameleon-like change in appearance.
Surely something for us all to experiment with.
