New York Magazine + Will Cotton

I’m loving these creative fashion spreads these days mixing art and fashion. Just a few months after W Magazine debuted its annual Art Issue featuring Jessica Chastain styled by a number of notable contemporary artists (including Mickalene Thomas, which I wrote about here), New York Magazine dropped its annual Spring Fashion Issue covered by Hollywood’s most stylish 14-year-old, Elle Fanning.

This is one of my favorite fashion spreads ever in the history of fashion spreads. It is not only inspired, but also so indicative of Will Cotton’s practice, making it clear how much freedom the artist was given over the shoot. If you browse through his works on his website, you can see evidence of past inspirations seeping through to Fanning’s spread. A few images from the shoot are below, but pick up the latest issue of New York Magazine for some serious eye candy (pun intended).
