Claudine reading in a red dress. Marcel Dyf (French, 1899-1985). Oil on canvas.
Dyf masterfully captures an intimate moment of Claudine reading. Seated comfortably, Claudine’s lush chestnut hair is up. Dyf’s soft detailed brushwork allows for a striking rendition of Claudine’s flawless complexion and elegant clothes. He allows the entire focus to be on Claudine by employing a plain background.

Edie Campbell reading in Morocco for Vogue US, June 2013. Photograph by Peter Lindbergh. Styling by Grace Coddington.
A short, 20s inspired coif and retro makeup bring a cinematic feel to the ensembles, while the Morocco landscape with all its magnificence and roughness serves as a perfect background for the boyish looking Campbell. Lindbergh transforms even the most simple acts into precious dreamy and deep moments.
