A Love Story

It's always the season for love. So this is a perfect time to enter the world of Shakespeare's classic, Romeo & Juliet, as it was brought to life with model Coca Rocha as Juliet and American Ballet Theatre's Roberto Bolle as a very handsome Romeo. These epic photos were done by Annie Leibovitz for the December 2008 issue of Vogue.


Wedded bliss in Vera Wang.



The love story ends in tragedy, but with an everpresent beauty when wearing this Alexander McQueen gown.

  2. The fluid back and forth between photography and the formal qualities of Old Master paintings is captivating. Leibovitz clearly studied her art history.

    Having come back from Miami's Art Basel fair, I could have used truly beautiful images like these to get me through the hubbub of over eager collectors who push when they want to see something in a gallery's booth!
