Peggy Guggenheim serves as the inspiration behind this month’s Vogue México story featuring Ruby Aldridge photographed by Thomas Cooksey. Titled “Icónica,” the Keegan Singh-styled story zeros in on the part of the American art collector and socialite’s legacy that is overflowing in fur and other luxurious excesses. The telenovela-style staging gives a dramatic air to the editorial, but it is Ruby’s command of the lens that keeps readers rapt with every turn of the page.
