India Salvor Menuez’s Version of Botticelli's The Birth of Venus Is Still Naked, but Much Snarkier

Botticelli's The Birth of Venus has lived on as a landmark of lily white, idealized femininity for centuries, but in the model-actress India Salvor Menuez's take on the painting—and on idealized images of women in general—she's much more than that, and in fact quite full of snark. "I just want lunch," Menuez says in the latest edition of W's Worn series, taking care to shout out the space heaters keeping her going hidden behind the plants.
