    'Dog Butlers, Peticures, and Meat Roaf Room Service: Inside the Ultra-Luxe World of Pet Pampering', Vogue US, January 2018, pp. 72-73 (variant)

  • Catalogue Essay

    Taken on the tennis court of a Versailles-inspired mansion in Los Angeles, this captivating photograph by Steven Klein shows Guinevere van Seenus getting busy on a training day with her four-legged friends. Wearing a Dolce & Gabbana bustier top, briefs and high heels, Guinevere displays athleticism, lifting two dogs as hand weights, with a white poodle leashed to her leg. A variant was published in the January 2018 issue of Vogue US to illustrate an article on how the wellness craze has extended from humans to their pets. Klein is one of the most innovative and provocative artists working in fashion today. His image-making is grounded in reality but the template is constructed with elements of allure and ironic humour as seen here. His work resides in several public collections, including London’s National Portrait Gallery and V&A and New York’s International Center of Photography.
