Carolyn Murphy, dramatic diva

Numero China’s September issue cover chooses a different setting to the norm, and creates drama by both styling and association. Seated in the red velvet chairs of a theatre, Carolyn Murphy looks to fit the cover’s title of Diva, though not with the negative connotation that the word has come to attract.

Inside the pages Murphy stars in more dramatic looks, photographed by Tiziano Magni. If you needed proof of the prominence of fall 2012’s key fashion trends, this is it.

It’s no wonder either: trends like baroque details, capes and furs all lend themselves easily to such displays of theatrical drama.
