One of my favourite themes in editorials is when famous works of art are recreated as fashion. This shoot Julianne Moore did with Peter Lindbergh in 2008 is one of the best. In it she poses in couture fashions and recreates works by artists like the one pictured above where she manifests as one of Edgar Degas’ dancers in Armani Privé, as well as shots by artists ranging from 19th century portrait artist John Singer Sargent to provocateur Richard Prince. Julianne’s milk-pale dappled skin, gorgeous bone structure, and transformative talent lends itself perfectly to this awe-inspiring shoot. Below are the shots of Julianne alongside the work recreated for the shot.

Julianne in Bottega Veneta/”The Cripple” by John Currin, 1997

Work of Art: Jessica Chastain by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue, December 2013

Editorials that are based off works of art are always a favourite, especially when they’re as well executed as this one of Jessica Chastain for the December issue of Vogue, shot by master portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz. Jessica Chastain’s achingly photogenic face and ease in front of the camera allow her to sink into the moods of these beautiful pieces of art perfectly. The selection of paintings and styles that have been chosen for her to emulate is outstanding, with the familiar and the not-so-familiar mixing together to help make this an editorial that can stand on its own.
