Around my house as a kid, fashion magazines were about as abundant as take-out menus. My Mom had several subscriptions coming in at once, so there were always plenty of stacks laying around waiting to be cut up. ¬†Obviously I didn’t care much for all the stories and essays, but the editorials would keep me day-dreaming for hours. I’d picture myself in whatever exotic place the models were, like chilling at Cafe de Paris with Kate or dancing the night away in Rio with Gisele. That was mostly Vogue and Elle and Bazaar – it wasn’t until I was much older that I could start appreciating the obscure shit, like W or any of the European editions. God, sometimes W even gave me nightmares. Here I was, a pre-tween, naively expecting to see the same bronzed beauties that lined all the pages of other popular publications. Instead I’d be faced with Alien-esque models sporting outfits straight off a Derelicte¬†runway show and strange S&M themes bordering on German porn. Years later, I realized that was simply ‘high fashion’. And who were the ones who always seemed to be lensing these insane editorials? None other then the two Stevens, Meisel and Klein. Just a few days ago I posted one of Klein’s latest shoots for W on the MOB blog – a super creeped out spread titled Super Linda, starring Ms. Evangelista herself in a series of superhero gimp outfits. Yeah, it’s as weird as it sounds – check it out here. So when I saw this other editorial for Vogue Italia’s September issue by Meisel, I couldn’t help but confuse the two. Between the frightening facial masks, lots of latex, and just an overall resemblance to Mama Elsa from Real Housewives of Miami, it truly has all the makings of a Klein photoshoot. Something tells me Cindy Sherman would be into this too. So, what do you think, does it have a Klein vibe or what?! Peep all the flicks below…

Someone should consider turning this shit into a horror movie, truly terrifying.
