Have you ever wandered across a fashion editorial that took your breath away? 

The first time this happened to me, I was flipping through a Vogue when I was about 14 and was caught breathless when I saw an editorial in the back of the magazine. From then on fashion has had my undivided attention. 

As I perused Fashiongonerogue this morning I stumbled upon this editorial from Vogue Italia in 2003 done by the god of fashion photography Steven Meisel and modeled by none other than Jessica Stam. 

Re-visiting Kathleen’s blog on colored hair I have to say the look, styled here in 2003 by Brana Wolf was revolutionary. The way Jessica’s hair glows in some of these pictures gives a whole new meaning to avant-garde. 

 Was your breath taken? Mine sure was!
