Too attractive, too tempting…irresistible. This overwhelming sensation is explored in depth by Mario Sorrenti in the February issue of Vogue Paris in an editorial that features Tanya K amongst a quintet of in-demand models. Titled “Irrésistibles,” the Jane How-styled story shot in black and white arguably proves its thesis alone with a pair of Tanya’s portraits. In the first, the Russian beauty wears an asymmetrical lace bustier by Anthony Vaccarello and for the second a silk lace and tulle robe by Valentino. To call both irresistible would be a gross understatement, but then again the most powerful sentiments require but a whisper to be adequately expressed.
