Isn’t this one of those breathtaking photo shoots, the kind that doesn’t come too often anymore? Natalia Vodianova shines in haute couture and these gowns are even more mesmerising up-close, when you can see them much more in detail. But the photos are too artistic not to display them in full spread. Styled by none other than Grace Coddington and lensed by Patrick Demarchelier, this is a fashion tale I want to discover over and over again. Haute couture and tale are words that belong in the same phrase.
