VOGUE meets Mongolia

A great shoot in November's British Vogue - combining fantasy with steppe culture, fashion with National Geographic.

The story actually engages with Mongolian people and their dresses, rather than using them as ethnic backdrops. And the clothes are almost ironically literal: Feather-dress for the eagle, parachute coat for the yurt, flokati-explosion for the yak. 

The Guardian can mock this shoot as much as they want, this is all-round enchantment.

(Well, except maybe for the Edward Scissorhand hair)
