|Valentino Spring 2012|
I am longing to see Valentino's full campaign shot by Deborah Turbeville in Mexico and love the choice of Zuzanna Bijoch, Maud Welzen, Bette Franke, and Fei Fei Sun - brilliant casting.
And Oh! the hair!
It reminds me of some of Sargent's paintings, namely 'Cashmere' which is his eleven year old niece painted several times. I remember seeing it in a book in my school library and it literally sent my head spinning.
I'd not seen his work before and have remained in awe since. The man was a genius.
