The September issue of Vogue Italia has supermodel Stella Tennant on the cover and a closer look reveals that she’s wearing a nose-ring and Indian-style chandelier earrings.

In fact, if you look at her face closely, she looks convincingly Indian and nobody would guess that she’s actually a British aristocrat – her grandparents are the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.

However, when I first saw the photo, I was immediately reminded of Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 1994 collection. Using heavy Indian influences like a digital Rupee print, Gaultier accessorized his collection with nose-rings and other traditional tribal Indian jewelry.

And here is a lovely image from Vogue’s April 1994 issue of supermodel Christy Turlington demonstrating a yoga pose in Gaultier couture. So Zen!
