    Very imaginative styling! I especially love the image with the grey fur coat

    Love the photo with the bloody tear! My favorite editorials with religious iconography are by Camilla Akrans and Steven Meisel because if you’re going to go there, you really have to push the limits, I think, and though the darker images here are fabulous, somehow the lighter colored photos here just don’t hold the same intensity, save for the first image before the cut. She has such a beautiful face and I adore that her editorials are so different from one another, that she hasn’t got just one look…

    Sophie really is the only vamp in fashion, when she does the vamp (even if she is called Mary) I swoon.

    There’s kind of too many crosses, but i love this styling and Sophie did great job here. In love with ‘bloody tear’ picture.
