Linda in Vogue Italia

Steven Meisel's pictures of Linda E in September's Vogue Italia are really outstanding fashion photographs, and I can see him referencing Cecil Beaton, Lillian Bassman and Irving Penn in them, while making them all his own. However I must speak out against bloated fashion editorials that have no meaning at all: Calling a spread Urban Decay, then showing a lot of random clothes that do not have any discernable running theme makes even the best photographs look irrelevant. Is this a portrait of Linda? Not exactly. Is this about hats? Coats? Leather opera gloves? What is it about, one wants to know. What am I looking at?
