Pretty pics for the weekend

Tim Walker is one of my favourite fashion photographers working today and I was delighted to find a new Walker editorial in the current issue of UK Vogue. This shoot was inspired by the Ballet Russes, the subject is the latest couture (the McQueen dress above is divine) and the mannequin is one of the models of the moment, Karlie Kloss.

Walker worked with Karlie earlier this year on a Wizard of Oz inspired shoot for W Magazine. His photographs often draw on fairytale or mythological elements, playing-up well-worn stories. His use of light is inspired and distinctive and he seems to be a master at photographing haute couture.
Here are a few other Tim Walker images I've enjoyed in editorials of the past. All I can say is 'more please.'
