Watch Nicole Kidman As John Singer Sargent’s Sitters

Watch Nicole Kidman As John Singer Sargent’s Sitters

In June of 1999, Nicole Kidman was the cover of Vogue. In her cover story, she was photographed and posed in a number of John Singer Sargent re-imaginings by the Vogue’s photographer, Steven Meisel. Some of the photos are very clear homages, while others are a little more imaginative. All, though, are absolutely beautiful, and I encourage you to look into them. I’m posting a couple right here for your enjoyment. You will find all the classics there, including famous magnificent Madame X.

Meisel’s photographs pay homage to Sargent in more than one way. The photograph’s seem to capture some of Nicole Kidman’s personality as well. To quote the cover heading, she appears both “fearless and fabulous.” This is what Sargent was famous of too – capturing conscious realism and his attention to not only detail, but the characters of his sitters.

Beautiful!
