Pas de Deux

Karlie Kloss by Dusan Reljin for Vogue Germany December 2008

In light of the recent release of Black Swan into theaters, it felt apt to finally post one of my favorite editorials of all time.  That, and I just obtained a decent copy of it.  Karlie’s rather dark pas de deux with herself certainly falls right in with the premise of Black Swan.  And that wicked death stare!  She dominates all over the runway with that patented death stare, and she is fiercely intense in this editorial.  Of course there is also that Rodarte piece to contend with (incidentally Rodarte had costumed Black Swan as well).  I love the badass styling that transforms this into an avant garde ballet.  This editorial is perfectly deconstructed while delivering enough structure to make it cohesive.  And it gives Karlie a chance to display that spectacular classical training.
