Nicole Kidman basically has two personalities. Sometimes she’s the belle of the ball with elegant dresses and mouthwatering up-dos, then other times she’s sexing it up and strutting around in thigh-high boots. So it only makes sense that when she lands a cover for Vogue Germany‘s August 2013 issue, she should get two versions.
Appropriately, the covers seem to be inspired by Black Swan, as each photograph shows a different facet of the actress, an angelic and a devilish side. It’s a pretty obvious theme, but when Nicole Kidman poses for two excellent photographers, even obvious turns out incredible.
In the first photo, shot by Camilla Akrans, Kidman’s face is bathed in soft, white light as loose curls frame her face and she holds, you guessed it, a swan. The second picture taken by Patrick Demarchelier, shows a darker side, with a big black hat, shadows, and a pose that clearly indicates “I’m scheming.”
Both photos are gorgeous, and as a pair they highlight that dynamic quality that has consistently made Kidman an excellent model throughout her career.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
