Black Caviar On The Cover Of Vogue
A very special, history making edition of Vogue Australia hit the streets last week featuring none other than racehorse Black Caviar. It is the first time in its 53-year history that Vogue Australia has featured a horse on its cover. Vogue’s cover girls have included Oscar winning actors, supermodels and Princesses, but there has never been so much interest in a cover before.
Black Caviar was photographed by young Australian photographer Benny Horne in the foothills of the Dandenongs in a purpose build outdoor studio alongside the thoroughbred of Australian modelling Julia Nobis. In Paris this season Julia walked 23 runway shows, just one more than Caviar’s 22 races won.
On the cover Julia wears Alexander McQueen, and inside features 8 pages of portraits of Caviar and her all-powerful hind and Julia wearing black and white eveningwear.
