The Polaroid issue - Vogue Italia

Editorial // 2017

Steven Klein pays tribute to the great, Franca Sozzani, in “The Polaroid Issue” for Vogue Italia, 02/17.
This honors the Spirit of Sozzani, a renowned figure of high fashion that we recently lost. Art revels in the unknown, as this story calls out to the liberated souls of high creation.
Li Xiao Xing redefines the lines of sexuality by wearing a masculine style Tuxedo. Looking every bit a fearsome female, she stuns us senseless in a Worth & Worth Top Hat, highlighted by a black, flower patch over her left eye. Luxury and lunacy blend with distinct looks that redefine the idea of beauty.
