London: Vogue Italia is set to shock readers once again with its latest cover, as it features a British model with a 13-inch waist, nose ring and lip stud.
The glossy magazine’s much-anticipated September shoot is a dark and Gothic affair. It’s also one that is laden with hoop earrings, the Daily Mail reported.
Featuring Stella Tennant, the ‘Avant-Garde’ themed styling, is an ode to Ethel Granger, the self-styled lover of corsets and facial piercings who tightened her midriff into epically tiny proportions.
Photographed by Steven Meisel, Tennant wears a dark Prada gabardine coat and sports a gypsie-style nose ring as she holds scissors aloft and ready to cut. Her waist is cinched to a freakish 13-inches.
The model even appears to sport a lip stud - a small pearl that mimics Granger’s mould-breaking experiments with facial piercing.
