In Vogue Russia’s October 2012 issue, French fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier shot Russian model Anna Selezneva at the Vaganova Ballet Academy in Saint Petersburg. But she wasn’t faking it as a dancer, thank goodness. (We’ve all seen how that turns out.) No, the supermodel was standing in as the classic, stern ballet teacher! What, like you don’t wear 6-inch stilettos to class?

 

Check out this blog for the full spread of pictures, and don't miss the behind-the-scenes video. Selezneva looks a little overwhelmed by the studio full of tweens, but those young students are clearly having the time of their lives.
