Photographer Steven Klein brings us a dark and dramatic editorial entitled "One for the Ages" for the September 2011 issue of W magazine, which features model and actress Amber Valetta ageing before our eyes. In a story which showcases a century of fashion, taking us from 1929 to 2019, with styling provided by Edward Enninful - the shoot features Valetta with models Brian Shimansky and Matthew Coatsworth as her male companions, transitioning from a young woman to an older woman within each decade.
Luigi Mureno is the coiffure behind Valetta's age-changing hair and Lucia Pieroni on makeup, with special effects makeup by Damian Till and prosthetics designed by Christien Tinsley.
Oh, and eye-spy those panther sunglasses by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy AW 11-12 (pic no. 9), the black acetate version at £350. Or if you prefer, you can make that kitty all the more real by opting for the fur covered version at £390. Meooooow!
