I am left pretty much speechless at the beauty of this cover shoot of the July 2009 issue of Dazed & Confused. Out of the numerous Mariano Vivanco editorials and photo shoots that I have previously featured, nothing has moved me quite like this one. Is it androgynous beauty of Kendra Spears and Roy Pratt? The melancholy of AJ Abualrub? The outlandish styling of Nicola Formichetti? Or perhaps it is the Louis Vuitton thigh-high boots that Madonna sported at the recent CFDA gala. Whatever it is, this is one brilliant editorial.
Kendra, AJ and Roy are members of ‘Black Crow’ a gang of rebels styling it up in black fur and feathers.
