Michelle Pfeiffer: Vogue Herb Ritts photofeature

This famous photofeature by Herb Ritts and featuring Michelle Pfeiffer appeared in Vogue in 1991.

The shoot had her posing as six different characters: Lulu from Pandora’s Box; Eliza Doolittle (before & after her transformation); Kate from The Taming of the Shrew; Maggie from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof; Laurence from Private Lives; and Joan of Arc.

Michelle Pfeiffer said in the interview accompanying the article: ‘I had lists and lists compiled, and I did a lot of reading, and it all kind of boiled down to these characters.’
