For April, Vogue Italia is exploring a theme usually left to teen and tween mags: Prom. But don’t expect pastel frocks and fussy updos–this is prom the Vogue Italia way (so, leather and fur S&M masks).
The concept is creepy, but we’ve got to hand it to Steven Meisel, it’s also pretty cool. There are two versions of the cover: the “nice” version featuring models looking “normal” and prom-ready in tuxes and cocktail dresses and coiffed blond hair, and the “naughty” one with bondage masks a plenty. The two covers lend themselves well to Vogue Italia’s obsession du jour, the gif, which is also up on their website.
