Since she’s doing some hard work for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art big spring exhibition, “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy,” (starting May 7) and sponsored by Italian designer Giorgio Armani, it was only natural that the May edition of Vogue Magazine features some supershoots.
Beginning with the cover, the May issue of Vogue is a on a Superhero spree. Coco Rocha does Poison Ivy with a Nina Ricci Swarovski embellished dress custom made for Vogue,
Catwoman by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana with Christian Louboutin for Rodarte shoes,
Aurora with Martin Margiela custom made for Vogue bodysuit,
Dawnstar in custom sequined Dior Haute Couture dress
The Little Mermaid with Gaultier rubber bodysuit with shell detail and sequined detail
A Batman inspired custom made for Vogue Rick Owens zippered leather-and-cashmere suit
A Silver Surfer-like Armani prive silk dress
I’m really curious about this exhibition. Since Wintour’s involvement is pretty important, “there will be blood”. The Museum will only feature American inspired superheroes (I wonder if they’ll do the man and women suits as this photo shoot by Craig McDean lets us see or they’ll just stick to the legendary truth).
