Back in 2008 pop culture and fashion magazine Vanity Fair featured a series of stylized photographic portraits inspired by Alfred Hitchcock films. An interesting and fun concept, contemporary star actors mimicking classic actors in iconic scenes. Apart from paying homage to Hitchcock, there is a real theatrical quality about these photographs. Apparently, this feature received many positive reviews. The concept could have been triggered by Annie Leibovitz’s celebrity portraits in Disney characters the year before.
