Cosmonaut Couture

February 16th, 2012 | Space

Renowned fashion photographer Arthur Elgort shot these photographs, starring Russian supermodel Natalia Semanova,  for the December 1999 issue of Russian Vogue.  The images are taken in a Cosmonaut Training Center in the town of Star City, and all of the cosmonauts are real.

The shoot took place after the end of the Cold War, but I like to imagine that this is what the secret Soviet Space Program looked like.  It feels like James Bond.

And as one commenter noted:

“If russia used their women instead of weapons during the cold war, we’d all be wearing furry hats right now”
