Pre-Raphaelites in Vogue


I have just purchased a copy of Vogue for the first time in my life. The Pre-Raphaelite themed photographs are stunning. This one, on the letter from the editor page, is inspired by Rossetti’s Helen of Troy. That painting also happens to be one of the most googled images that leads new visitors to this site. Β  The model for the Vogue spread is talented actress Saorise Ronan with photography by Steven Meisel. Β The fashion editor is none other than Grace Coddington, which I find to be quite perfect as she looks to me like she could have stepped straight out of a Pre-Raphaelite masterpiece.

Make sure you read Grace Nuth’sΒ post about the spread at The Beautiful Necessity. Grace is often in gorgeous Pre-Raphaelite photos herself, so I always enjoy her perspective on photography.
