TRANSFORMERS: The Magic of Fashion?

W Magazine's September 2011's editorial Transformers, shows how makeup and clothes can completely
"transform" a person and help them take on a completely new persona. It's like how we tend to sit with our back straight when wearing something nice, or walk with more confidence in a pair of new shoes. Don't you think we all pout a little more when wearing lipstick? Or how a man acts more sophisticated in a well fitting suit. Sometimes we do that without even realizing it, we naturally come into character.

The story has been shot by Steven Meisel and features models like Linda Evangelista (who is known for being a bit of a chameleon), Raquel Zimmermann and Jessica Stam. The styling is gorgeous and the make up and hair transformations inspirational.
