‘India Song’

This beautiful story, shot in Jaipur by Mario Testino, is from the May issue of Vogue Paris. Anastasia Barbieri’s styling makes me yearn for a bit more glamour in my everyday life—it may be time to step up my run-around game.

  • Wow Preston! Everything about this is…gorgeous. The surroundings, the clothes, the accessories, the hair, the make-up. Adding to all this glamour is her posture. Extraordinary elegance. Thank you for posting.

  • “India Song” is also the name of a gorgeous Marguerite Duras film about French ennui in Indochina, and the eponymous title song from that film, sung by Jeanne Moreau, is one of my favourite songs ever.

  • A nod, it seems, to Richard Avedon. Who was that model from his shoot in India in the early 60s?

  • The model is Vittoria Ceretti.

  • I don’t usually become obsessed with models, but I find Vittoria mesmerising in everything she appears in. A bit like Amber Valetta. There is just something timeless about her. These pictures are divine too. I love the fur coat (is it The Row?). Sadly, there’s no season to wear fur here in Australia!

  • Strike that- I meant Norman Parkinson’s photo shoot with Anne Gunning.

  • Or was it Barbara Mullen?

  • This feature is everything I and my life are not…..and yet I find so compelling. The last shot deserves a long look.

  • So evocative of Norman Parkinson’s photos taken in Rajasthan. Kind of heartening to see that not much has changed.

  • This is lovely – and yes, very Norman Parkinson.
