Double Take

There are some fashion editorials which are so mind-blowing in their execution and attention to detail that they warrant a second look. American Vogue's Grace Coddington is quite simply a creative genius and has been at the helm of many of the fashion bible's most memorable shoots. American Vogue's November 2001 issue features an editorial shot by Steven Meisel which pays homage to iconic figures in the music industry and the outlandish fashions which they became famous for. A cast of top models including Karolina Kurkova, Carolyn Murphy, Devon Aoki, Kiara Kabukuru, Sophie Dahl and Karen Elson transform into the likes of Marilyn Manson, Debbie Harry, Prince and Courtney Love. The modelling prowess of Kurkova, Murphy et al. combined with the meticulous styling of Coddington sends this editorial straight to the top of the charts.
