Paris Vogue in Peru

Paris Vogue sent Peruvian photographer, Mario Testino, to his homeland to shoot a number of stories for the April issue. My favorite images from the trip are these of Erin Wasson shot in Nazca, a Sahara-like desert south of Lima. German mathematician, archeologist, and Nazca preservationist, Maria Reiche, was the inspiration for the story.

The Celine dress, Dolce striped top, and Bottega floral skirt, are a few of the best pieces of the season and look great in this context. Birkenstocks and socks anyone?

  • Thanks for highlighting this lovely spread! My mom is from Peru, I have visited frequently, and my first cousins all still live there. I can’t wait to tell my mom that her fabulous country (natural beauty a la Nazca and Macchu Picchu, lovely beaches, fantastic food, etc…) has been featured in Paris Vogue. Mario Testino does Peru proud.

  • As an engineer I love that the inspiration was a woman in science. We need more girls interested in science and math.

  • Too right Amee. And more intelligent women from all walks of life who feel that it’s okay to look good…and who understand that being fashionable is NOT the antithesis of being smart!
