Raquel Zimmerman by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia

As I was scrolling through Fashion Gone Rogue, this spread stopped me in my tracks. I guess that in a sea of crazy fashion spreads, it's raw, simple images like the first picture in this spread that are truly shocking.

I'm not even sure that I totally get grasp Meisel was going for here, but I like it. The juxtaposition of the wig-wearing, overly made up, pose-y Raquel and the wet-haired, grinning Raquel is really cool.

The deliberate fakeness of the black wig photos feels very Cindy Sherman to me.

What do you think?
