W’s magazine version of a controversial pictorial brings an artist in the spotlight: Maurizio Cattelan. As opposed to the bad-taste controversy offered by Vogue Paris with Lara Stone, Maurizio Cattelan portrays sweaty armpits and religious matters on glossy fashion magazine paper reality.
As I am an already declared fan of funny art, art that makes you smile, I cannot fully enjoy this very refined pictorial put together by W Magazine and Maurizio Cattelan. (the story continues right after the jump with more images!)
I surely feel grateful for Linda Evangelista: she’s always a beautiful sight for nostalgic eyes. But pushing religious imagery in fashion magazines doesn’t make me tick or tack. It only raises my eyebrows in a wrinkle-making artsy reaction! It’s the W raising-eyebrows way, they don’t stray much from the gloomy path they usually take when it comes to issuing a new number from the W artsy-glossy mag. But it’s far from being the enjoyable fashion I deeply sough after!
