I AM MPLS!: Take a closer look at this week's big A-List pic

For the third edition of I AM MPLS!, event creator and producer Sarah Edwards decided to go big with a photoshoot. The resulting image is reminiscent of a Vanity Fair special issue, and Edwards says she got the idea from a Grace Coddington shoot for Vogue. "I love when I'm flipping through fashion mags and there is an image that asks you to study it and evokes curiosity of the story behind it," she says.

Of course, getting movers and shakers on the Minneapolis scene together for a picture can be a little like herding cats.

"Oh man. I mean, all of these people are so busy, and trying to land a date and time to shoot was near impossible, but everyone was on time. So much work went into this photo but everyone is fairly patient and understands," says Edwards.
