IF IT WEREN’T for the presence of Girls actor Adam Driver, the casual observer could be forgiven for thinking this Irish spread for American Vogue was shot in 1953 instead of 2013. iPads, for instance, are conspicuous for their absence.
Veteran photographer Annie Leibovitz – who made her name working for Rolling Stone in the early 70s – staged shoots at a number of dramatic rural locations around the country.
The scenes show Driver and model Daria Werbowy demonstrating an enviable ability to connote “sullen” in a wide variety of situations:
1. On/beside a donkey
2. Standing/crouching in a boat
3. Carrying livestock while shirtless/pretending that’s perfectly normal
4. Up a tree

The nine-page shoot is featured in the September Issue of US Vogue.
Tourism Ireland says the spread will be a boon for the tourism sector and will help position the country as “a highly desirable and fashionable place to visit”.
