Stunning “Dandy Queens” Photo Spread Reimagines Herstory

Part sapeur, part Janelle Monae, a recent spread from Blackattitude magazine titled “Dandy Queens” is down-right stunning. The French magazine calls upon Calamity Jane, Dr. Mary Walker and Jo March for a historical (and visual) reinterpretation. The three become dashing, dapper, handsomely stylish folks. Bold and visually dense, you can take a look at the editorial over at Blackattitude.
