Cass Bird is so good she’s almost mythical. Sometimes I find myself just staring at her photographs, or writhing in jealousy thinking about the art directors who get to work with her to create some of the most memorable magazine covers in recent history. I get envious of companies like Vogue who have a long-standing relationship with Cass, and have the power to lean back in their shabby-chic chairs and say things like: “Get Cass on the phone, we’re gonna pay her big bucks to stand in the Met Gala bogs to take photos of celebs taking photos of themselves.” Genius. Well, that’s what has actually happened, and last night Vogue published Cass’ photo series on their site. BWI Magazine interviewed Cass about her time in the most decadent toilets in the world and she said she decided to photograph in there because “that’s where the fun’s at.” So true. Pity there were no pics of Rihanna trying to manoeuvre that dress in and out of a cubicle unsoiled.
