Doing up models to look like celebrity icons isn’t the most original idea in the world, but for at least half of this editorial for Tatler’s August 2011 issue, photographer Robert Trachtenberg and fashion editor Anna Bromilow got a little creative. Rather than simply slapping on period makeup and wigs, for some of the pictures the model merely held up a picture of the person they’re impersonating. It’s a fun, slightly sarcastic twist on an old standard in fashion editorials. Kind of a shame they didn’t follow through with it on all the pics, lapsing instead into boring old mimicry for the Dietrich, Turner, and Kelly pictures. The ones with Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy, Madonna, and Princess Diana are perfect, though.
