Sirenomelia is trending. About two years after Lady Gaga debuted her video clip for Yoü 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.
