Marchesa Casati A Man Ray portrait of Casati dressed as Elisabeth of Austria, 1935 (Man Ray Trust by SIAE 2014)

Captured for Vogue by the photographer Hoyningen-Huene, Casati dressed as Count Cagliostro, a 17th-century occultist, wearing a mask, suit of gold and silver, high heels and a crystal sword, she is an ultimate inspiration and a model to look for me. Im drawn by how carefully staged every piece is been staged- soggy wigs, crinoline, props.
