...I ♥ THIS...

Heidi wears: Bodysuit Miu Miu, Athletic tape (worn as sleeves) Tourna Grip, Customised shoulder pads vintage Maison Martin Margiela

Lenz wears: Dress Dolce & Gabbana

I found these images this afternoon flipping through an old-ish V magazine (V55, Fall 2008) - the shoot is called "Fall For Heidi". I love the athletic tape as sleeves that Heidi Mount is wearing in the first image, especially with the Miu Miu bodysuit. The look is kind of futuristic harlequin - I wonder what the tape would look like in reality?

The second image of Lenz Von Johnston is impossibly gorgeous. The juxtaposition of the male body with the intensely feminine Dolce & Gabbana dress is such a beautiful contradiction. Lenz expresses so much longing with his body. A story told in just one photograph.

I also just noticed that this was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Love, love, love. More of their photographs here.


  1. athletic tape as sleeves... genius!

  2. You know the Lenz photos are an homage to a Marilyn Monroe photo shoot? Apparently the photographer got a ballerina dress made for her but she'd done a bit too much drinking and the dress didn't fit so she had to hold it up against her. One of the photos is here:
