Fashionable skeletons

"A photographer will always be in need of his or her muse. During the mid 1990s famed fashion photographer Richard Avedeon shot iconic model Nadja Auermann various times (Versace ads included). The collaboration between the two peaked in 1995 when Avedon shot a 25 pages long spread for The New Yorker of Auermann together with a skeleton, labelling the series In memory of the late Mr. & Mrs. Comfort. Auermann appears in million dollar dresses together with her deceased husband, Mr Comfort. One of the most impressive fashion spreads from that time, Auermann was clad in pieces from Gaultier, Issey Miyake, Lacroix, Comme des Garçons, Manolo Blanik, Thierry Mugler, Versace and Margiela. Smoking, showering and dancing in a ring of fire it’s one of those moments in editorial history that makes you pause, reconsider and whisper 'oh, wow'."
