While looking for images for this blog post, I stumbled upon a cover of Italian Vanity Fair and quickly realized that it was the exact same photo as the one that was featured on the French Elle Magazine that I had featured in my Sans Fards post. To make matters worse, they used the same photo, in the same month and the same year! Check it out:
