Stella Tennant stars in a bizarre editorial titled The Discipline of Fashion and covers for Vogue Italia September 2011. Shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer, the Stella Tennant for Vogue Italia September 2011 editorial is inspired by Ethel Granger, the girl with the smallest waist, measuring at just 13 inches. Her ultra thin waist was a product of years of wearing a corset. This and her facial piercings were a result of her husband’s peculiar fashion fetishes. Read more about Ethel Granger at vogue.it.
Vogue Italia has done it again, deviating from the norm with yet another thought-provoking and controversial editorial. I find this extremely disturbing but rest assured; on watching the behind-the-scenes video (scroll to the end of the post for the video), you would realise that Stella Tennant’s waist has been photoshopped a great deal. The corset probably also accounted for the somewhat weird poses that she does. Planking is also featured once again in a fashion spread here to my delight and amusement. Pretty anti-climax if you ask me.
With these stunning visuals, more often than not, the clothes are lost into oblivion. Stella Tennant wears Marc Jacobs, Nina Ricci, Alberta Ferretti and Moschino among others.
