johnyokoRScoverFor Purple fashion magazine, Sean Lennon and his girlfriend, model Kemp Muhl recreated the legendary Rolling Stone cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono taken by Annie Liebowitz. 

The photo shows a nude Lennon clutching a fully-clothed Ono in a subtle gender role reversal with the sensitive Lennon appearing vulnerable and submissive to a serious and strong Ono. In the recreated photo, Sean Lennon takes on the role of his mother being fully clothed and clutched by his nude girlfriend.

The original photo was taken the day John Lennon died on December 8, 1980 in a photo shoot for Rolling Stone. The photo was published on the cover of Rolling Stone as a memorial to Lennon in January 1981.
