Signs of the Times

November 4th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (56)

British Vogue has always been adept at capturing the whimsical side of fashion and this month they go all out with a special story by Tim Gutt that takes cues from astrology. With Siri Tollerod expressively playing all the signs and set designer Shona Heath contributing some truly inspiring sets and costumes to compliment Kate Phelan‘s styling, this edit is a whole lot of fun. Do you think the outfits match the signs? Let us know in the comments!

    Ohmy, I didn’t realize it was actually star sign star sign. the shell one is my favorite just from the first glance, and it actually matches my starsign.

  12. Mathew says:

    this is not a fashion editorial. It’s a wonderful fashion art spread. These images could be in an art museum. So wonderful. Lucky Siri getting cast for this job. Those images will be remembered.

    Would have been better if they did them exclusively in couture houses. Astrology in houses/Couture Haus? HAHA.

    …witty.

    Love… 1984’s Splash meets the later 80’s.
    Such a smooth, pitch perfect confection.
    The quirk and “fingerness” of the Scorpio images is perhaps my favorite but Leo in Lanvin is certainly the star of the set.

    A bit less than enthused with the Gemini image – though its obscene alien nature is rather definitive and is perhaps the sharpest of the bunch.. Conflicting status – the woes and beauty of the zodiac. Job well executed by the creative team!

  25. fadsfdskl says:

    Amazing!!

  26. marvoi says:

    ♥ how they conceptualized the shoot! like, as a taurus, it is refreshinf to be symbolized by a toreador rather than the bull… thankyou, british vogue!

  27. Shannon says:

    Gemini!!

  35. tom says:

    Wonderful though Aquarius is not a water sign, its an air sign.

  36. Mimi says:

    This is beautiful.

  37. peppa says:

    the photo of Miu Miu is amazing , very funny

  38. Marcus says:

    One of the best editorials this month I must say! Love it!

  39. ania says:

    this is the best editorial i have seen in years!!!

  40. Hollywood Sentinel says:

    some of these images are nice, but others, such as the females buried heads, and woman in the garbage can symbolize women as a body without a head or brain, a piece of meat, and a disposable commodity to throw away in the trash, its demeaning, and you would rarely if ever see a male in an ad campaign portrayed this way

  41. Jensine says:

    absolutely brilliant

  42. Hannah says:

    I WOULD have loved this editorial (but Frida’s beauty editorial would ahve still been my favourite) had it not been for stupid pisces. As a pisces myself I am deeply offended that not only could they not be bothered to incorporate the sign into the picture, fish aren’t exactly difficult (yes there are sardine tins, and kind of the shoes, but crap effort is being kind), but they decided the next best thing was to be in a bin.
    What Joy.
    ps. If anyone gets this please tell me, I am so confused and it realy lets the ediotrial down.

  43. Nicholas says:

    I was hoping that Siri will be a male and a female in Gemini.

  44. Joliene says:

    A fantastic fairytale! Love it.

  45. Me says:

    nice as a concept.. but not for my taste.. don’t like these concept “stories”.. it’s so done…

  46. Jeremy says:

    This is absolutely stunning. Siri is the most beautiful model

  47. Ashley Jermaine says:

    Love it, I would like full size prints to put up on my walls!

  48. san diego photographer says:

    Hay, Trying to view this article on an EVO 4G and am having issues. I can’t get the images to load correctly. Just wanted you to know, thanks!

  49. jin says:

    I Love the editorial by Luis Monteiro as well, amazing pictures and attitude, the model is brilliant!

  50. Alice says:

    this is awesome! love this editorial, and siri looks amazing also!

  51. hannah says:

    aries equals a ram… ram equals wool. hence the knitted scene. drr.
    anyway amazing. <3

  52. Marty says:

    i have to love the capicorn :D

  53. Anais says:

    Siri looks amazing like always! Seeing her in this makes me think that DNA is going to do great things with her and soon she’ll really blow up like she should have long ago. Go Siri!

  54. jd says:

    incredible… but a little let down on Aquarius (my sign) – Aquarius is an Air sign & the Water Carrier, not a fish! :(

  55. tearry says:

    is beautiful..

  56. Ryo Stylin says:

    Love the story. I’m Taurus. That’s the weakest one imo :?
