The Lady Of Shalott

These photos are from an editorial in Vogue Italia, and were shot by Ellen Von Unwerth, and (I think) styled by Leith Clark. They reminded me of two of my favourite paintings- The Lady Of Shalott by John William Waterhouse, and Ophelia by Millais. They have the same kind of dreamy, ethereal beauty. I was lucky enough to see Ophelia in real life when it was at the Tate gallery a few years ago, and its really amazing. You cant tell from the picture underneath, but its actually pretty big, so on a grand scale its really impressive.
Also, I just did a guest post for Gossip Gonzesse if anyone's interested, but you should check out her blog anyway because its amazing :)
