Lara Stone & Frida Gustavsson by Peter Lindbergh for Vogue US July 2011

Spellbound - Photographer Peter Lindbergh (2b Management) and fashion editor Grace Coddington weave a story of romantic intrigue in this editorial for Vogue US’ July issue. Featuring a love triangle with Lara Stone, Frida Gustavsson and actor Alexander Skarsgård–leading lady Lara plays femme fatale to Skarsgård’s quiet, cosmopolitan reserve. While Frida Gustavsson uses her girlish charm as the other woman. Grace Coddington’s glamorous picks from labels such as Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga and Miu Miu conjure dangerous characters in a world of 1940s film noir elegance.

    I can’t believe I’m thinking this, but Lara is really falling flat for me here.  I do like Frida’s presence.  Also, Lindbergh can do cinematic sooo much better than this.

    I don’t know if I like Lara and Frida in the same spread. Something just seems off. 
    But they look beautiful anyway. And the styling is wonderful -but what else can you expect from Grace. ;)

  3. These are NOT very good! It’s like every shot was being second-guessed.

    I don’t understand you people. I love every single shot. They’re all beautiful! Can someone explain why this spread isn’t great? I’m just a common person, I don’t know much about fashion, even less about photography, but I simply don’t get what’s so wrong with this ed…

      please have a look at some late 90’s, or even early 2000 work by Lindbergh and you will understand. He used to have such a beautiful and heart wrenchingly raw way to photograph narrative (and women in general).
      This is poorly constructed, derivative and contrived and could (as most editorials are these days) have been shot by anyone’s of Meisel, Weber or Testino’s many assistants.

      Also there is a reason (proportions + light) that Lara’s eyebrows should remain bleached!

  8. Lara looks amazing.  Frida on the other hand is just a figure in the background.  I don’t even think she deserves to be in the title.

  10. Ugh.. I hate white shoes.. but the ed could be better.. if Frida was in it FOR REAL.

  12. i LIVE for these kind of editorials–ones that tell stories in every detail of every shot. this is so beautiful and is so successful in that it takes the viewer out of the present and into a certain time, look, and overall mood. I get lost looking at these, from the lighting to the coloring, to the fashion and styling, and of course Lara and Frida are some of the strongest, most compelling models out there. Amazing pairing, and amazing work.
