      • the American Vogue does look a bit similar, though that story line seems to be reporter meets mature famous photographer, has a “brief encounter” (ha ha) and leaves. it was a beautiful editorial. :)

    • It’s actually the other way around: That Harper’s editorial was inspired by Peter Lindbergh. Lindbergh here is reference himself. He has shot this story numerous times. And he has earned the right to do so.

      • Then it isnt creative on either parts. to rehash the same concept is a bit of self plagiarism. but don’t want to go down that slope!

    • I will add that from a technical perspective the photographs are quite nice. 

      • I agree that this shoot could be referencing other fashion shoots, but it really doesn’t matter – magazines like Vogue China or USA will occasionally take a step to the avant-garde but its important they maintain a broad commercial appeal for their readers. This ed is romantic and incredibly polished. 
        Most of the world doesn’t care at all about fashion but no one could say this isn’t beautiful.

  1. she’s channeling monroe because the shoot is based off the movie the misfits featuring monroe in a troublesome relationship with aging clark gable

  2. She is absolutely gorgeous but her look is more on the boyish side then Marilyn is. Marilyn had more womenly look.

  3. lol the last picture: shes dressed like somebody died. and he looks like he just died. :PPP

    I love Lara and how she connects with the role she wants to play, her attitude is so charming that just a pose captivates everyone. By the way, there is a cool photographer that is not on the list, and I think she’s a prodigious professional, Tina Patni.
