Now & Then No. 9

Silly me never realised that this Now & Then was left as a draft, so here we are, another "masterpiece", this time from Vogue Korea competing with the original shot of Azzedine Alaia. If it wasn't for Alaia, I'd probably skip it, but I am allergic to anything that uses his legacy without actually involving his original designs or the man himself. I am not even sure who this shot passed the magazine editor because the first photo is so iconic.

  1. Lol. Wow they are really similar. There is no doubt somebody copied this. It shows such a lack of creativity.

  2. The second one is definitely a play on the original concept. I really think that magazines tend to recycle photo ideas more than we even realize.

  3. They do say that imitation is the most sincere form a flattery... But this is pushing it a bit, I think.
