Classics Re-presented

Liu Wen in Chanel by Victor Demarchelier for Vogue China February 2011

Oh Chanel…Je t’adore.  While I don’t think her designs should ever be remastered (and I don’t like every shot), I do rather like this editorial.  Victor Demarchelier does a very decent job with this.  And he certainly has some big shoes to fill considering his father.  Really though, there’s something about Vogue China‘s studio shoots that I really like.  They are well canvased and intriguing to look at.  I particularly like the shadows cast in this studio shoot; they create really unusual silhouettes.  Not to mention, I will never tire of ladylike editorials.  Chanel’s designs are classic.  Liu Wen certainly does them justice; she comes across elegantly refined and charismatically cool.  And would you look at those cheekbones? Girl, those are stunning.
