Magda Laguinge goes on her very own couture adventure in an editorial by the same name in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar China photographed by Chinese fashion photographer Jumbo Tsui.  There is a vague magical realism character to this story, what with the abundance of docile animal subjects and all. Flowers feature throughout as an obvious extension of the refinement and intricate beauty of haute couture. To that end, Magda is pictured holding a solitary yellow rose by the steam and wearing a black gown from the Dior Fall 2013 Couture collection by Raf Simons. Arresting, adventurous, this story has the makings of a classic and a model in Magda Laguinge to realize them.
