Read all about it. Bonnie & Clyde for Harpers Bazaar

Anna Selezneva & Wes Bentley for Harper’s Bazaar US

Hi all,

I love this shoot, I’m sure I can’t imagine anyone who doesn’t go a bit gaga for the dark romanticism of this pair of vigilantes. The bank-robbing rampage of  Bonnie Parker & Clyde Barrow during the Great Depression epitomised rebellion and thus appealed to the disillusioned, unemployed public of America. Their story has continued to influence popular culture; in the late sixties Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway portrayed the pair in a critically acclaimed film. Since then the story has been even more romanticised and glamourised turning the couple into a pair of 20th century Robin Hoods.

Although Peter Lindbergh did a similar shoot for Harpers in 1993, this editorial has particularly apt timing. It looks to have been styled (by Aleksandra Woroniecka) more on the 1967 movie; though it undoubtedly refers to the real Bonnie & Clyde. Speaking of fashion, the shoot uses this season’s penchant for femininity to the extreme. Posing with pistols, next to an actor in slacks, braces and a Trilby, Anna Selezneva couldn’t fail to look lady-like. The masculine trousers and shirts look equally as feminine as the pretty florals, high-heeled brogues and soft knits that feature so heavily in this shoot.

The real Bonnie & Clyde

    You have used the word “vigilantes” incorrectly.
    Bonnie & Clyde were NOT vigilantes. They were outlaws.
