>> Happy Holidays to you from American Vogue -- they've rallied and given you the best editorial I've seen from them in a while for their December 2006 issue -- "Garden of Delights," featuring Gemma, Sasha, Caroline Trentini, and Karen Elson shot by Steven Meisel. I'm really feeling the gamine dark hair and kohl-rimmed eyes that feature on all the models -- like I have been saying a lot recently, the twentiesy excess has really been rolling around in my head.
These three are my favorite shots: portraits of Gemma and Sasha each with beautiful floral headpieces by the talented Stephen Jones. And I love the melange of monochromatic green textures between the Dior Couture dresses, grass, and leaves.
Enjoy the flowers while they're fresh -- we'll be experiencing a floral explosion all over the pages of magazines come spring. The rest of the editorial can be seen here.
