You could make the argument that the legendary Italian photographer became a legend over time while settling into the 6X6 Hasselblad (and probably that for some but not all his work) in the "Film Days."
With a gaggle of technicians (lighting, camera and film lab) wardrobe, makup and complete control of subject and lighting he doesn't need to go digital. But that doesn't mean that you can't get the same or "better," faster, cheaper results with some kind of a digital set up. As I view the posted shots they are unremarkable technically but certainly creative in wardrobe, posing and fashion concept.
Those final images out of the shoot are masterpieces according to my lowly taste though. Paolo Roversi had been famous for shooting 8x10 Polaroid in constant light in film days because only Polaroid could give him the uncontrollable randomness that he has always dreamed to obtain in his images. The video in the above link, however, shows he was shooting digitally tethered with Capture One in constant lighting condition.
