One of the great things about V Magazine’s homage to Elizabeth Taylor is the inclusion of the little snippets and quotes that pepper the editorials. Even from those few words here and there can you get a sense of the colourful life she led. The issue is covered by Kate Winslet but inside the pages do many a model and celebrity have their skin powdered, their brows preened, and their fingers iced with diamonds for the Carine Roitfeld-styled issue.
Lara Stone was amoung them, wigged and suitably made up. Diamonds, naturally, were a mandatory inclusion.
I love the vintage-modern styling by Carine, but somehow I can’t help but feel the shoot falls a bit flat. I suppose a sparkling quality like Taylor’s is hard to imitate on command.
