Li Bingbing eats pasta

Madame Figaro has a killer cover and editorial of Li Bingbing. It is more a study of light, shadow and mass than a fashion shoot as such. There is a bit of an Italian postwar Neorealism look--not only the shot of LBB lying prone in a set made to look like a hotel bedroom and about to chomp on a big forkful of spaghetti but also the image of her in a corridor swinging on a luggage carrier with a stout, semi-disapproving albergatrice in the background.

Great hair and make-up--the fashion assistants must have swept the shelves of the local beauty supply shops for hair gel--but what makes this shoot stand out is the implied but still laser-like eye contact with the viewer that LBB and the photographer achieved.
