The photos by American photographer Annie Leibovitz appeared in US Vogue in 2008.
Leibovitz imagined “Romeo & Juliet” with Coco Rocha as Juliet Capulet and dancer Roberto Bolle as Romeo Montague. The styling is magnificent and the photography exquisite. The photos capture the painterly quality of a Renaissance canvas. The lighting evokes the period and complexity of the tale.
The stellar cast includes John Lithgow as Friar Laurence. Estelle Parsons as the Nurse. Andrew Samonsky, Charlie Brady, Pablo Schreiber as Tybalt, George Merrick as Mercutio, Robert Lenzi.
