Vogue Italia / Vanessa Axente & Marlon Teixeira By Steven Meisel
Vanessa Axente and Marlon Teixeira photographed by Steven Meisel for the December 2012 issue of Vogue Italia.
"Glossy and hot. Thinking of Jerry Hall in New York at the time of Studio 54, the indisputable icon of a provocatively glamorous femininity, this story recounts a style with an immensely high level of sensuality in a bold and uninhibited fashion. Harmony with an ad hoc fragrance is indispensable. That captures with the impetuosity of bergamot and the white truffle from Alba, seduces with the voluptuousness of jasmine and tuberose and envelops with the warmth of oak and patchouli musk. This is the bouquet of Valentina Assoluto by Valentino, an intriguing, magnetic and unpredictable sillage for a woman whose style is non-conventional.
