The Office

October 11th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Charlotte Di Calypso is trapped at the office; Miles Aldridge casts the willowy blonde beauty as a bored corporate drone in Vogue Italia. Drowned in a sea of beige and looking aloof, Charlotte drinks from the water cooler, sorts through files and rests against the Xerox all while posing perfectly. Perhaps a little too perfect – is our heroine an idealized worker or is she simply robotic? Aldridge uses his surreal style to great effect and the flawless makeup by Lloyd Simmonds adds to the artificial feel of the pictures, as does the slick monochromatic styling by Cathy Kasterine.

Hollywood Remake

September 1st, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

We love a good film reference and the latest Vogue Italia delivers with an editorial inspired by the 1962 Bette Davis and Joan Crawford thriller, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Miles Aldridge draws inspiration from the black and white classic, but shoots in his signature saturated colors. Playing both the deranged Baby Jane and her bedridden sister, Elisa Sednaoui gets the chance to put her dramatic skills to good use and pulls off both parts admirably in a story that is almost as fun as the melodramatic movie it pays tribute to.

Never seen the original? Take a peak at this video for a taste of the madness!
