Take a couple of killer corsets, fashion’s premier photographer and an iconic model and what do you get? Vogue Italia‘s September issue! Stella Tennant graces the cover in an extreme look created by Karl Templer and shot by Steven Meisel. Only Stella could pull off the combo of constricting garments, multiple piercings and random planking in an editorial and make it look this good.

    I don’t like it and i don’t like Stella either, but i guess she’s the one that looks the most like Ethel Granger.

  5. Marty says:

    I am horrified.

    I love Stella, but this pictures are sending the wrong message. Honestly, I’m terrified young girls would see this, this is scary.

    Love Vogue Italia, love the work of Steven Meisel, i’ve never been a fan of Stella, but this editorial, is confusing.. very confusing, i wonder , did actually wear those corsets, or the images hasve been photoshoped so much, that they seem they are from Ripley’s archive,,, I don’t know, those corsets steal all the amazing work with the lights and the poses. I did’nt like it.

  10. schnaider says:

    Very interested!
    but i’m not fun of Stella
    I hope to see Linda Evangelista in the next issue

  11. The Editor says:

    This is beautiful. Despise those damn things.

  12. Xanax says:

    Truly avant garde.

    Yes the corset is shocking, but this editorial is an homage to Ethel Granger, a woman who took corset wearing to an extreme.

  13. Michael says:

    This is amazing.

  14. GP says:

    OMG! is this real or photoshoped?

  15. trumancapote says:

    this s what vogue italia s supposed to do..avant garde

  16. frankie says:

    I am speechless.
    I don’t know what to think about it.
    It’s kind of disgusting but avant-garde at the same time.

    This photoshoot is ART and has nothing to do with anorexia.People should stop acting like Vogue Italia is trying to promote unhealthy image.Those images are just stunning and unique.

  18. Lulu lovefiend says:

    I love the third and fourth shots and the whole steampunk goth vibe the editorial has. i think it would have made more of an impact back when dita was a fashion darling or when everybody was crazy about spanx. The pseudo-mortified reaction this issue elicts from the general public is radher amusing.

  19. ppc says:

    I really dislike this issue. It’s not about photoshop/anorexia/art or whatever message people is trying to get from this editorial. It’s simply the fact that it has nothing to do with fashion, with vogue italia. I honestly don’t know what this is. This looks like a heavy metal band album cover. Not impressed at all…

  20. aminat says:

    haha…the last photo…planking..cool

  21. Nádia says:

    Imo, this does not look like an homage…it looks like a parody!

    I understand how strong and powerful the editorial is though. But I can’t love it.

    However, the cover is amazing!


  22. carola says:

    Incredible, Stella is one of the best models ever.

  23. Sheuli says:

    What is this?

  24. E says:

    It’s really bad for the body to tie a corset that tightly, especially if you don’t do waist training.

  25. lee says:

    i saw the ed’s video and i could tell that they photoshoped the corset because of how the video is edited.. anyway, now i can enjoy the ed without feeling bad for Stella

  26. D says:

    I have read that the waist is altered in photoshop so don’t worry about her health it is just photoshop

  27. D says:

    And if you don’t practice tight lacing for a loooong time you will never get such an tiny waist- you can pull how had you want, you won’t succeed

    Fucking rad.
    The second shot is amazing.
    And the third shot is really smart.

  30. Christopher Yong says:

    SO STUNNING!!! Now that Vogue Paris has lost all the OMPH… let’s hope that Vogue Italia will continue to SHINE with its DARK light… ^____^ love the images… it really brings you to a different place and time!

  31. Christopher Yong says:

    OMG… just recalled… the styling and mood of the editorial remind me of the legendary FRIDA KAHLO….
