War on Terror photoshoot

Hmm. Italian Vogue (flash slideshow) have marked the anniversary of 9/11 by publishing what Boing Boing call both ‘mainstream TSA porn’and ‘State of Emergency,” a most disturbing fashion pictorial shot by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, September 2006. Models: Hilary Rhoda & Iselin Steiro’

Not sure I’d call it ‘porn’; it certainly seems inspired by the late Helmut Newton, though.

The images have been scanned to a livejournal page; one of the comments there, from ‘guineverefaye‘, is the somewhat cynical

‘lmao THAT’S realistic. Cops these days are more likely to escort any attractive white woman out of the building and gently open the politce car door for her. The models did a good job though.’
