Julia Nobis by Daniel Jackson - Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Dior, Viktor & Rolf Haute Couture Fall 2016 


Im a huge fan of Lewis Carols book “Alice in Wonderland” so I started looking into editorials based around it. I came across this spread by the wonderful Annie Leibovitz. I absolutely love it! Its great seeing the designers involved in the editorial.

This 2003 Vogue editorial, photographed by Annie Leibovitz, who has become known for her fairy tale portraits, is one of my first memories of Natalia Vodianova, and what a lovely introduction! Vodianova’s sweet, innocent, eternally youthful face captures the beauty of Alice so perfectly, and seeing her posed in shades of blue next to cheeky designers seems so natural, all the odd eccentricities of the designers are perfectly at home in Carroll’s world. Of course Galliano is the Queen of Hearts! Of course Gaultier is the Cheshire Cat! It all makes such gorgeous sense set in this spectacularly nonsensical world. ~ Les Beehive

“Yonder”, said he, “stands the tree where my father was slain, and no step went he beyond it. Now see,” said Rolf, “if I can throw an arrow so far.”
