What Lies Beneath

Supermodels Carolyn Murphy and Karen Elson team up with photographer Steven Klein for American Vogue's January 2013 issue. Murphy and Elson play co-conspirators with matching beehive hairdos as they tend to a garden shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Grace Coddington styles the iconic supermodels in the latest Spring/Summer 2013 looks from Prada, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu and Balenciaga amongst others as the pair tend to the garden's many hidden secrets. 2012 was the year that heralded the return of many a familiar face to the modelling's spotlight including 90s supers Yasmin Le Bon, Carla Bruni, Tatjana Patitz, Eva Herzigova, Estelle LeFebure, Shalom Harlow, Amber Valletta, Murphy and Elson. Could this be a sign of the public's yearning for models with real supermodel clout or perhaps merely a shift towards a more inclusive beauty ideal which encompasses women well into their 30s and beyond. In either case, Elson and Murphy look magnificent as they do their best to evoke a mood that is reminiscent of the psychological Hitchcock thrillers of the 60s.
