Sisterhood is something of a recurrent theme in fashion, not least for the due it was expressly given by Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri in her Fall 2019 ready-to-wear collection early this year in February. The editors at ELLE Russia have tapped this well of sisterhood for its September 2019 issue with a magazine cover featuring their nation’s most famous twin sisters, Lia Pavlova and Odette Pavlova. Photographed by David Bellemère, the cover pictures the Lia and Odette wearing what else about Dior. The bond of sisterhood was no doubt strengthened at the beginning of the year when Odette gave birth to a baby girl, the fact of which also made Lia an aunt. That strength is shown in this cover, which as statements go could not be more emphatic. Go, sisterhood! Go, Lia and Odette!
