Vogue's 'Extreme Beauty' Photographs [food art]

"Sweetie (A)", Irving Penn, January 2002

We've always been partial to the hyperstylized Irving Penn food photography that accompanies Jeffry Steingarten's food writing in American Vogue. We should have been turning the pages, though, because as evidenced by Style.com's slideshow of photographs from the "Extreme Beauty In Vogue" exhibit in Milan, much of the magazine's beauty imagery has an edible slant to it as well.

Jezebel, unsurprisingly, has a critical take on the collection, saying of the images that "while some are simply stunning, others are a testament to the humiliation models often endure." To our great pleaures, some of that humiliation involves food.
