In June’s Harper’s Bazaar, photographer Peter Lindbergh visually documents the dissolution of a marriage after a public sex scandal. Clearly, the story echoes the Eliot and Silda Spitzer story, right down to the model’s loyal stance at a press conference.

But in this photo essay, the jilted wife eventually dumps her sex addict politician hubbo for a young buck with floppy emo hair. Oh, and she trades in that matronly updo and conservative Hermes scarf too. Poor Silda. Imagine flipping through a magazine while getting a manicure and seeing your painful life story reduced to a fashion spread.
