Anyone who watches Bravo’s Work of Art: The Next Great Artist knows that this cover idea must have been birthed when Richard Phillips appeared as a guest judge alongside host China Chow. (And yes, Young Sun was robbed!) In any case, Phillips painted Chow, using an original photograph by Markus Klinko and Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri *, in his signature hyper-realistic style for the cover of Chinese Vogue’s spring 2012 collections issue.

*This post has been corrected to show that Phillips used a photograph by Markus Klinko and Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri.
