‘Mechanical Dolls’ editorial was captured by photographer Tim Walker for the October issue of Vogue Italia 2011 which features the adorable pairing of Audrey Marnay and Kirsi Pyrhonen. The twosome plays dress up complete with pale faces, moustaches and painted on eyebrows. Outfit collection was from Alberta Ferretti, Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney and Kenzo. The photography is done in such a way that it’s impossible to detect that there are real girls in form of dolls.
