Fashion Photographer: Annie Leibovitz

Since we are on the topic of fashion photographers, I just want to share one of my favourite – Annie Leibovitz. If you love fairy tales, Brothers Grimm, Disney, fantasy and such, you will probably love her works as much as I do. Recreating these beautiful stories with fashion, her works bring you to another world, much like a theatre, with a plot full of mystery and a tinge of darkness.

Here are some of my favorite works of hers.

The Alice in Wonderland spread in US Vogue Dec 2003 Issue, depicting designers as characters from Alice in Wonderland.

Christian Lacroix

John Galliano

Karl Lagerfeld

Jean Paul Gaultier

Donatella Versace

Victor and Rolf

She also did a collaboration with Disney that captured celebrities as Disney characters last year:

Jeff Bridges and Penelope Cruz as Beauty and the Beast

Queen Latifah as Ursula from Little Mermaid

Mikhail Baryshnikov, Gisele Bundchen, and Tina Fey as Peter Pan, Wendy, and Tinker Bell

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens from Sleeping Beauty

Julienne Moore and Michael Phelps as Ariel and a mermaid from The Little Mermaid

The images are extremely beautiful and poetic, yet dark and witty at the same time.

Such is the charm of Annie Leibovitz’s works. Pure magic.
