Body Art

Horst P. Horst and TyenVogue’s June 1st, 1940 issue, dedicated to swimwear styles of the season, featured model Lisa Fonssagrives dressed for the beach and positioning her body to form the letter “V” for Vogue. Photographed by German photographer Horst P. Horst, the image incorporates elements of surrealism and dadaism, both movements which had a significant impact on the photographer’s work. To celebrate British Vogue’s 75year run, the magazine paid homage to the 1940 cover with their own version in 1991. Photographed by Tyen, model Yasmeen Ghauri who dressed in a metallic bodysuit by Karl Lagerfeld, also configured her body into letters to spell out the word “Vogue.”
