The latest issue of the V&A Magazine, published by the museum, features a gatefold cover promoting the museum’s Hollywood Costume exhibition, which opens later this month. Conceived as an homage to Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood issue, V&A editor Thomas Phongsathorn approached Vanity Fair and negotiated an unusual arrangement. Working with Graydon Carter (editor), Jane Sarkin (Features Editor) and Susan White (Photography Director), the two magazines collaborated on the above shot, by photographer Michael Roberts, style editor at large for VF (click image for larger issue).
The November issue of VF will include the same shot. There’s more in this video.
