We’ve seen our fair share of tributes to the late actress, activist and beauty icon Elizabeth Taylor, who died this March. But none of them have been quite so chic as the 72-pages which fashion alien Carine Roitfeld and photographer Mario Testino dedicated to her memory in the upcoming issue of V Magazine.
Roitfeld told the press in July that Taylor “had the kind of elegance that went far beyond clothes,” and the pages our friends at V were kind enough to share with us express that sentiment quite nicely. The six shots you’ll see below depict a young yet timeless vision of Taylor, wearing simple elegant silhouettes that Taylor would have felt right at home in.
Can’t wait to see the rest? You can pre-order it, or you can bite the bullet until it shows up on newsstands on Sept. 8.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
And while we have you here, check out this video of a few more Taylor-inspired shots we can expect to see in this issue.
