Natalia Vodianova in Mademoiselle aime les classiques story

Another story from the September 2003 issue of Elle France. Mademoiselle aime les classiques was photographed by Jan Welters who worked with Natalia in 2000 on her High Fashion Story featured in Japanese Vogue.

I love the first shot for there is something incredibly sensual about the pose, Gaultiers oversized coat wrapped around the fragile shoulders protecting the girl from the elements, the delicate ankles made to look even more exquisite by the chunky heels of Fendi shoes and the line running up the back of the stockings.

A flair of retro glamour brought into modern reality with a few classic staples.

  3. Just beautiful! I gotta wonder if her stocking line was drawn on because it is one of the cleanest lines I've ever seen!

  4. Hi Natalia! I think there is something magical into this shooting. You know how much adore this model too, in the first photo she look so fragile and sweet, in contrast with the feminine and sensual mood of the tights and the heels. My fav are the last 2, the coat she wear in the last is very sleek! Kisses, happy Monday! xo

  14. These photos are beautiful! I used to collect many many fashion magazines and one of my favorite things to do is look back at the old ones (i.e. mid-late 90's and early 2000's) and re-visit all the fashion spreads. It's really inspirational to see how far we've come and what sorts of trends we've taken from the past! Love this!

  15. Natalia looks so young, the first shot is really interesting, the oversized coat has come back after ten years! Its unbelievable. No problem, I know what you mean about terrible internet connection. Stopping by to wish you well for the week ahead.
