Vogue Netherlands – “Carry On Cleo”
Whenever an editorial looks to Cleopatra for inspiration the result is usually a woman who is decked with exquisite serpentine jewelry and eyes adorned with kohl. This editorial from Vogue Netherlands looked to the ancient Egyptian queen for inspiration, but instead of going all the way to 30 BC the Dutch publication brought her to the 21st century and styled her in fashion and jewelry fitting for a royal. Tunisian model Hanaa Ben Abdesslem is Cleopatra in the editorial and she is adorned with pieces from Chopard, Delfina Delettrez, Boucheron and many others styled by Saskia Van Langevelde. Photographer Johan Sandberg lensed the images for Vogue Netherlands’ January/February 2013 issue.
