Lily Donaldson Goes Wild In ‘Harper’s Bazaar’

As previews of next month’s editorials slowly begin to roll out, we’re taking notes on which models and themes are hitting the pages in a major way. One of our favorites so far is Lily Donaldson in the January issue of Harper’s Bazaar, shot by Terry Richardson. Although the editorial does indeed have a wild factor, it’s a much tamer wild than what we’ve seen from the notoriously racy Richardson in the past. Highlighting the best of the 2011 spring collections, the Julia von Boehm-styled feature has Donaldson donning everything from Missoni to Lanvin, all the while playing host to unexpected guest stars like an owl, snake, baby leopard, deer, and bunnies. And being the pro that she is, Donaldson is all smiles in most of the shots, as if feeding a deer in her Burberry trench is a totally common occurrence. While there are a few sans-animal poses, overall Richardson does a great job delivering a fun and fresh editorial that helps alleviate the oh-so-serious connotations of high fashion. See some of our favorite shots after the jump.
