Magazine editors are always scraping the barrel for photoset ideas, but we’d prefer it if they stayed away from universally beloved figures of children’s literature. There are a lot of different reasons to dress a man up in a straw hat and a hideous plaid suit. Leave Roald Dahl alone!
Apparently the temptation was just too great for the folks at UK Vogue. The result is a photoset full of Dahl quotes, incongruous models, strangely unappealing nudity and, for some reason, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter. We wish we could say something to explain it all, but there are simply no words.
