Editorial: Ruth Bell by Michael Pudelka for Vogue Japan May 2017

DREAMLIKE AND WHIMSICAL EDITORIALS evoke fashion magazines of past decades, when editors would travel to locations for weeks to shoot the photographs. They would gather the models, production team, and photographers, and make a party. It’s why we love this surrealist shoot for Vogue Japan’s May 2017 issue, for it feels like an absurd but beautiful dream. There is a Dior quilted red gown, worn by model Ruth Bell in an elegant ballroom amongst butterflies. There is an elegant masked ball with layers and layers of chiffon and taffeta. There are also models dressed in black couture riding unicorns—yes, unicorns. It is as if Salvador Dalí and Truman Capote threw a party, one that irresistibly mixes art and style. —Victoria.

Fashion Contributor, London

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
