VERUSCHKA





Doesn't this shoot from the first issue of Vogue Italia look like a Ryan McGinley photo story?

The V&A has chosen to use the seminal extract from the film Blow Up that stars Veruschka in its current British Design exhibition. The scene, which shows her writhing around for David Bailey's camera, is used to epitomise the liberated energy of the Sixties and the corresponding photographic style that depicted freedom, youth and a carefree take on fashion.
