I would like to think that the photo of Lily James for the March 2015 issue of W magazine was inspired by the shot of Christy Turlington and not plainly copied, just like the one with Christy photographed by Demarchelier was an homage to Avedon's portrait of Isabella Rossellini sans the little white friend. Truly, fashion moves in circles...
