Sirenomelia is trending. About two years after Lady Gaga debuted her video clip for YoĆ¼ and I, where she ingeniously incarnated the mythical mermaid presence, Tim Walker has “sailed” towards the same theme for W Magazine’s December Issue. Modeled by gorgeous/ageless Kristen McMenamy, the 15-shots-long spread follows the story

of a mermaid as she slowly lets go of her nature and sea world in exchange for landish torture. Needless to say that all that happens in to die-for designer clothing, synonym to divinity, styled by Jacob Kjeldgaar. Enjoy.
