i'd love it if someone could find that image and post it to compare...

i remembered it so well because i loved it...and i loved this one too...which is OBVIOUSLY the inspiration...

isn't it interesting when you find that stuff...??
i come across things like that pretty regularly...and i'm like...
"so THAT'S where they got the idea from"...

yes, i remember the image!
this happens to me all the time and it's so thrilling..i was about to start a deją vu thread a thousand times but then i always get stopped by not finding the images on the net/being too lazy to scan.

(helena and softgrey, now you both look very beautiful!)

The edit is shot by, as you guessed, Craig McDean for May 2001's W called "Role Model."
Here are some other scans I managed to find of the edit, scanned by Blackshine! Now, I could not find the big scan of the actual image in question but I am about 90% sure that it came from this editorial. About four images are missing from these scans so I can't be sure but in smaller versions of these scans I have on my computer, the White Cross image is grouped with them (same file name types). I'm sorry if that was completely incoherent because I'm not very good at explaining things
