Galley: Grace Coddington And Steven Klein Join Forces To Create Beautifully Weird Spring Editorial

flowers1We here at The Gloss like to talk about how awesome Vogue creative director Grace Coddington is as a person, but a quick search reveals that we haven’t explicitly made a point of showing you very much of her actual fashion editing work. Which is a shame, because it is great! For the January issue of US Vogue, The Cod enlisted Steven Klein to photograph models Carolyn Murphy and Karen Elson wearing colorful spring 2013 get-ups as they wandered through various bizarre, retro-futuristic scenarios. The resulting editorial feels odd, retro, glamorous and modern, all at the same time. Maybe fashion can be art, after all.

Minimal, luxe, structured, optic: do these words mean anything? These photos will help you decide.

Maybe it's just the red hair, but I'm struck by how much Karen Elson resembles a young Grace Coddington.

Carolyn's back hurts from working in the greenhouse all day. Take a break, Carolyn.

The composition of lines, shapes and colors in this image is just the best.

Are those white flowers, or a top and a skirt? It is all becoming one.

Women! Always crashing cars into the bushes and then leaving them there, amirite?

Is she burning down the greenhouse? I'm concerned.

Now you've gone and done it, guys. Karen has inhaled too much smoke and sunk into a deathly Ophelia tableau.
