Fashion Film Love: "White Mischief" by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia

Peggy Moffitt, eat your heart out. 

For Vogue Italia, one of the best fashion photogs around Steven Meisel has put together a photoshoot-cum-fashion-film. It's a fairly simple video, but has solid styling, a well casted model, beautiful cinematography and great make-up (latter much due to make-up queen Pat McGrath). 

Whites are a big trend for the Spring 2013 season - same was also said for probably the last 3 spring seasons. But, there's a definite je ne sais quoi with this video short that just kind of gets to you - and it's not the obvious seasonal trend Vogue and SM are pointing out.

Maybe it's the British voiceover? Maybe it's the jumbling imagery that quickly switches glides into slow-mo portrait shots. Either way, there's an unsettling yet charming quality about this fashion short.

Enough yapping - check it out:
