'Wild One,'  the title of this 1996  fashion editorial, brings to mind the 1964 Motown Hit by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas - a tune used as a musical reference to Marlon Brando's 1953 American outlaw biker film The Wild One - famed for Brando's flawless portrayal of  gang leader Johnny Strabler

Wild one, you're a rebel
And they say you're
Just no good 

John Galliano for Givenchy

But they might
Change their minds
If they only understood

Pictorial Parade 

Wild one, I understand

I know you've never had a chance

Chanel Haute Couture
You're a victim of circumstance

Don't you know where you go
I will follow you

Atelier Versace

So fight if you wanna and
Go where you're gonna
Be wild as can be but
Save your love for me
