Two days after announcing their reunion tour, the Smashing Pumpkins recreated the cover of their 1993 album Siamese Dream with the two original models.

“What’s amazing is their chemistry with one another still leaps through the camera to this day and yet if memory serves they’d never met before that Siamese shoot,” wrote Corgan. “Which tells me their coming together, and the beauty that Melodie’s shot captures, of youth and innocence, was meant to be SP’s own, personal lucky star.”

He continued: “So thank you thank you thank you Ali and LySandra, we adore you, and having you be a part of today’s launch brings tears to my eyes. For life goes fast, and I can still see you in my mind’s eye wearing crisp white dresses in a stranger’s backyard, looking like little Mother Mary’s [sic], smiling and laughing into the sun.”
