Spring of Cůrdoba
The Cult of Beauty Exhibit (2 April -17 July 2011)
From 2 April - 17 July 2011, the V&A's spring exhibition brings together many of the greatest Aesthetic paintings and finest decorative art of this extraordinary movement. Paintings by Aesthetic artists such as Edward Burne-Jones and James McNeill Whistler are displayed alongside the work of leading designers including William Morris and E. W. Godwin.
Influenced by the paintings of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the stylist Damian Foxe transformed the actress Bonnie Wright into a modern day Fanny Cornforth or Alexa Wilding (Rossettiís models and muses)
Dressed in flowing olive-green and coral coloured gowns, Bonnie Wright is shown surrounded by peacock feathers and opulent floral arrangements. If you would like to see the photographs and a behind-the-scenes video of the fashion shoot just follow the link below:
