Bianca Balti in ‘Simply Classy’ Peter Lindbergh for Italian Vogue March 2013
Vogue, in particular Italian Vogue, is fashion’s Bible, and it’s stories like these that instill my faith. Model Bianca Balti is “simply classy” as this story’s title suggests, in feminine dresses and coats by Dolce and Gabbana, crafted in an angelic way, captured by photographer Peter Lindbergh for the March 2013 edition of the magazine. Black and white play with natural light as a real photographer’s eye only knows, bringing a high-art element to the images — one akin to Roman sculpture, a refined sense of a sublime aesthetic. And look, a cigarette! That lace, that face; it’s all so right.
