So last week we shot the utterly beautiful Joanna from Australia's Next Top Model and she reminded me so vividly of the Jacqueline de Ribes with her super-long and graceful swan neck. Then my friend Fleur sent me a thank you card featuring a pair of swans gliding elegantly along their watery runway. It got me thinking how much I adored Bjork's Marjan Pejoski swan dress, which so many tabloid hacks failed to understand. A dress with a neck like a swan! Genius! So now I'm obsessed with swans. Which is handy because fashion's sure to be having a swan moment some time soon, what with Natalie Portman playing a dancer in Black Swan. Do you know swans mate for life? Lovely...
Pics from top: de Ribes by Richard Avedon; Portman's dark bird, crazy beautiful Bjork in that dress; Natalia Vodianova as seen in US Vogue; graceful girl-most-likely Joanna shot by Zanita.
