Golden and luminous

styled as Frederic Leighton's Flaming June

Oh seriously, is this not perfection? Grace Coddington, creative genius for Vogue magazine, and Annie Leibowitz, photography genius for Vogue, have done it again. They have placed beautiful actress Jessica Chastain smack dab into iconic paintings in the December issue of Vogue. As soon as I saw the cover I knew exactly what they were up to. The creative duo styled Ms. Chastain in scenes that pay homage to several famous paintings, including classics by Frederick Leighton, Gustav Klimpt, and Vincent Van Gogh. The cover photo, where JC is all golden and luminous while swathed in a flowing, squash blossom colored Olivier Theyskens dress, is my absolute favorite. Here are some other faves from the issue. Read more in depth details here. Genius, and very well done.
