DO YOU REMEMBER VICTORIA‘s article on the work of photographer Cecil Beaton? The most spectacular shot, the 1948 photograph of models wearing PASTEL-COLOURED satin gowns by Charles James now serves as the inspiration for TIM WALKER’s portrait, above, featuring models Grace Mahary, Maja Salamon, Ola Rudnicka, Codie Young, Esmeralda Seay-Rynolds, Nastya Sten, Sasha Luss, Alexandra Kivimaki, Alice Cornish & Fei Fei Sun, that appears in Vogue’s May 2014 issue.
