Never one to play if safe, fashion phenom Anna Dello Russo styled Italian model Bianca Balti as a Spanish bullfighter in March’s Vogue Nippon editorial called "Kiss of the Matador." The Giampaolo Sgura-shot images features Balti in looks inspired by the now-banned sport, designed by Versace, Giuseppe Zanotti, Moschino, Emilio Pucci, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Salvatore Ferragamo.
If you were the mother of both actress Monica Bellucci and model Bianca Balti, you would deserve some kind of award. I mean, to birth two human beings that attractive is at least worthy of early retirement. For Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2012 campaign, the designers imagine a world where these ladies are sisters in a tight-knit Italian family and do normal Italian things like dance to their brother playing the mandolin amidst a picturesque setting.
Shot by photographer Giampaolo Sgura in Southern Italy, Bellucci and Balti are featured in D&G’s feminine-focused creations, contrasting the masculinity represented in the Italian fashion house’s previous fall campaign. See fourteen more stellar images here.
