There's something very classic in a staircase... makes me think of old film stars in flowing dresses! Love the Backstage at Luca Luca, I reallylike the feather in the hair look! :) I also adored the Terry Richardson ode to the Sound of Music and the Italian Vogue shot with the kitties is adorable!

Seriously GREAT idea !!
