It took big names to make The Little Me

Christy Turlington in The Little Me editorial, Harper's Bazaar US May 1993
Whenever I read a little intro that accompanies a magazine photoshoot like this I wonder how it is even possible to find the right words without constantly being distracted by the content of the visual story. On one hand we have the fashion made of little tees and oversized cardigans, on the other - a photography in its art form: Christy Turlington, Peter Lindbergh, black and white theme, a signature behind-the-sceen shot, the timelessness of it all. 

I also happened to notice that the make-up was done by Stephane Marais who began working with Lindbergh in 1984 and later created the one-of-a-kind "couture look" for John Galliano's Spring show in 1994 followed by the "Chinese pin-up girls" for the Dior's Autumn 1997 collection. I became familiar with the name a few years ago after Galliano mentioned Marais in some of the interviews and seeing the credits on a page of Harper's gave me that warm "heart-wraped-in-a-blanket" feeling... 

Quite a special editorial, after all... The legendary one, if you think about it.

  5. You save the best and share it with us, that's what happens here. This editorial is legendary indeed, not only for the names involved, but for the minimalism of forms, colours, accents. An art piece talking to my heart. Have a lovely day Natalia

  7. I really enjoyed this post! I love to see behind the scenes shots with a photo shoot. Something about it always makes me feel more like a part of it. All of it seems more romantic when you get to see a little of how things were produced.

  9. A legendary editorial, indeed. Personally, although I love words, I rarely read what comes before a fashion editorial - the story in the photos is so much more important, I think.

  15. Все таки интересная получается тема, все эти мешковатые, бесформенные вещи смотрелись бы совершенно странным образом на обычной среднестатистической девушке, но на снимках и этой прекрасной модели они так гармоничны и правильны. Фотографии просто восхитительные, мне кажется.

  16. I didn't pay attention to the make-up until you mentioned it. I always thought that CT was the kind of model that looked good with or without make-up. But maybe we have never really seen her without even though we thought we had...

  18. It's amazing how an editorial like this is still completely relevant...if a magazine today published something like it, people would still think the photography and styling are gorgeous and the fashion is avant-garde. I love looking at pictures like these. And am I the only one drooling over that title page? Is it Bodoni?

    Love, Gigi
