I won’t lie. When I saw that the name of this editorial layout for the March 2010 edition of Marie Claire Italia was ‘Planet Earth,’ I immediately thought of, and quickly started singing, the classic Duran Duran song of the same name. Before I even really focused in on the gorgeous Denisa Dvorakova, cavorting around some desert wasteland in designer clothes, I was already hip deep into the chorus of: “Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop…This is planet earth….”

Anyway, Laura Sciacovelli was the photographer on this sexy shoot, accompanied by stylist Ivana Spernicelli; the creative twosome do a nice job helping Dvorakova heat up what already looks to have been a hot and sweaty day under the desert sun. Check out the images below and maybe accompany your perusing with Duran’s Duran’s self-titled debut, which features “Planet Earth” and the equally great “Girls on Film.”
