At 23 years old, Petra Collins has already made a name for herself in the realms of art and fashion photography—but like many millennials, her talents are multi-hyphenate. The Toronto-born artist has also built a strong portfolio from her work on the other side of the lens, with photographers Ryan McGinley (who would go on to become her mentor), Mario Sorrenti (in V), and most recently, Glen Luchford for Gucci's Fall 2016 campaign (she also walked in the house's Milan show in February, a clear favorite of creative director Alessandro Michelle). Modeling and photography aside, she has also tried her hand at acting, with a supporting role in the most recent season of Amazon's critically-acclaimed series, Transparent, and literature with debut book Babe, which collects the work of 30 female artists around the world.

Here, in a new shoot for Vmagazine.com, Collins messes around with a few of Fall's most amusing pieces—and the season's penchant for eccentric dressing. Check out the story below.
