Even if you’ve never heard of my blog and all you’ve read so far is “Tutus & Stilettos”, I think this goes without saying, but obviously I’m going to say it anyway, so here goes: I am obsessed with this editorial from October’s Vogue Russia. Shot by the one and only Patrick Demarchelier (I have Miranda Presley calling….I have Patrick! Devil Wears Prada anyone???), this spread features model Anna Selezneva portraying one of Russia’s infamously über strict ballet teachers, sternly pacing around a class of adorable baby ballerinas. Don’t try warming up to this crimson queen- the blonde beauty doesn’t crack a smile throughout the entire shoot- just like a true Russian ballet instructor (and yes, I am speaking from experience). Despite her spot-on iciness, Selezneva sizzles in each classic red piece she models, and let’s face it, everything is more fun to look at with teeny Russian prodigies in pointe shoes pirouetting and prancing around!
So, do tell, what do you think of this editorial?
