That the latest issue of Interview does not spontaneously combust the moment its pages are turned surely must call into question the basic fundamentals of science. How else to explain the excellent Malgosia Bela story by Steven Klein? The two combined so stunningly on the Alexander Wang Fall 2013 campaign and this latest outing by the pair is no exception. So combustible are the portraits from the Ludivine Poiblanc-styled story titled “Grace Undone” that for the sake of this page only a solitary shot will be posted. For the rest of the story, please consult newsstand or perhaps your local fire department. Malgosia for her part is grace epitomized. No matter how seemingly provocative the shot, Malgosia says it all with a whisper. The resultant tension is exquisite, just like Malgosia.
