It's not the first time a natural disaster has been used as inspiration for a fashion magazine spread, but has Annie Leibovitz's latest work come too soon?
As a wave crashes on to the bow of a US Coast Guard boat, three models strike a pose, gazing serenely across the choppy waters in barely there dresses. It’s an arresting image, as is that of the National Guard delivering food parcels to a nearby hospital while supermodel Joan Smalls leans on an infrantryman’s shoulder and shows off a Proenza Schouler leather crocheted jacket and skirt. This is American Vogue’s Storm Troupers shoot, inspired by – and featuring – members of the emergency forces. And it has not gone down too well, with many commentators calling it tasteless.
