Justice in the New World suffice it to say has a dark past. That past is given a high fashion treatment in the September 2016 issue of W in a story featuring amongst others Odette Pavlova photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and styled by Edward Enninful. The Salem Witch trials took place in Salem, Massachusetts more than 300 years ago, and when all was said and done resulted in the execution of 20 people, 14 of whom were women, accused of witchcraft. Centuries have past and the season of witch is given a modern reboot in this story titled “Power” as Odette and co visit historic Salem. Odette (pictured) exudes a stony, reserved elegance that would not likely be out of place in colonial Massachusetts as she sits atop a picnic bench wearing a Chanel dress. American jurisprudence might have evolved beyond its 17th-century origins, but that does not prevent Odette from reaching back in time toward the darkly delightful.
