It’s not often enough that a fashion shoot comes accompanied with a written story. This one for Vogue Italia does, though if I said I’d read it I’d surely be lying. When I can get my hands on it, I will.

The short story is by Mario Fortunato, while in Miles Aldridge’s shoot Jacquelyn Jablonski plays the titular Extravagant, Sophisticated Lady. Her boxy vintage car is overstuffed and messy, she has a cigarette dangling from her lips and a demeanour that at times contradicts her utterly glamorous styling. It seems she may even be living, rather glamourously, out of her car. Why? Well, I won’t know until I read the story.

Suffice to say that, story or none, the styling itself is breathtaking from the ’50s style party frocks to the striking eye makeup.
