For his role as guest editor at Visionaire, Riccardo Tisci chose to go with a religious theme for the magazine's 60th issue, which included photos of both Christina Ricci and Arizona Muse as two different Madonnas. He's long incorporated images of Catholicism into his shows and work, and his Southern Italian background is probably to blame for his superstitions—before each show, Tisci puts salt in all four corners of the room, "to avoid negative energy," he says. "I'm superstitious, that is very much part of religion". [Independent UK]
