When I first spotted the new Vogue Italia cover featuring Naomi Campbell with one of her signature 'Just Before I Kill You' stares and flawless skin moisturised with the tears of her fearful assistants - I thought, hang on, didn't Herb Ritts die?
This cover shot by Steven Meisel is SO Herb Ritts-ish with a nod to all of the late photographer's iconic elements such as architectonic shapes, unusual adjacencies, warm light and those classic sepia tones. I like it, although Naomi is missing a ciggie and a Martini in her hand.
Wearing a Blumarine dress and gloves by Carolina Amato, the supermod is styled by Karl Templer for the new February issue which is on sale today.
