Surprise! Baptiste’s Naked Again In This Strange Surrealist Editorial

We probably spent more time reading magazines in college than we paid attention in Art 101—though, if the work we studied was as titillating as this Elle Italia editorial, we might have cracked open that textbook sooner. Karl Lagerfeld unleashes his oddly fabulous inner vision and shoots off-kilter muse Iekeliene Stange in feathered, furry, and frothy jackets, not to mention his perma-nude boy-toy Baptiste Giabiconi who manages to stare into the Karl-helmed lens in every single god-dammed shot. Somehow managing to overshadow Stange and even the plastic-packaged Baptiste are the quirky head-pieces that feature a colander, a telephone, a handbag, and a shoe reworked by some kooky milliners. Forget about Lewis Carroll's fantastical world; Karl might be the OG Mad Hatter. (The Fashion Spot)
