Peacock Magic


Stumbled upon these amazing illustrations for the first edition of Oscar Wilde's french
biblical play "Salomé" (1891). Peacocks are just so magical...

             
Very first cover sketch (left) and illustration by Aubrey Beardsley for Salomé by 
Oscar Wilde 

    
A handmade peacock feather cloak (this one took 1500 feathers) and PRADA's SS2005
Peacock feather collection (remember how beautifully Meisel pictured this dress for
the ad campaign?)

Peter Doherty pictured with a real peacock for a recent VOGUE Italy shoot 
(Nov. 2010 issue)
