Big Adventure Vogue UK
One thing I love about Tim Walker is his use of Kirsi Pyrhonen. She is one of very few elite models who always gives something unexpected in a shoot – something I think worked beautifully for her in Vogue UK’s “An Awfully Big Adventure” for their December 2011 issue. With the beautiful styling of Kate Phelan, the photos turned out to be everything that we now expect from a Tim Walker spread: humour and meaning which duel with the excess. Swoon. View Post

Adele Vogue UK
If you weren’t already aware, Adele is the bomb diggity. Like…worthy of bringing back phrases from the Nineties she is so amazing. Vogue UK obviously gets the picture, as the mega mag has slapped her on the cover of their October 2011 issue (see: Adele – “Hometown girl goes global“). You’ll be able to get a closer look at the Sølve Sundsbø lensed photo as well as some intriguing content (Amy Childs: The Ultimate Essex Girl?) come September 8th.

Freja Beha Erichsen Vogue UK September 2011
The effervescent Freja Beha Erichsen shines on the cover of British Vogue‘s September 2011 issue, marking her third cover for Vogue’s posher partner. The aqua-hued dress and star-spangled accessories are both from Dolce & Gabbana‘s Fall/Winter 2011 collection, and the cover was shot by Mario Testino.

Kate Moss Vogue UK
Mrs Jamie Hince – aka supermodel Kate Moss – nabbed next month’s cover of Vogue UK in a Miu Miu dress. The cover and accompanying shoot were lensed by Mario Testino. This is probably the best Kate cover I’ve seen in years. Love does a model good.

That said, I can’t be too wrong to expect there is a severely-bobbed, miffed Anna Wintour somewhere. Londoners got the Moss-Hince marriage cover a month before Vogue US was set to, didn’t we? Conde Nast competiton heats up?

Place In The Sun Vogue UK
Tom Craig got all wedding photographer – in a fantastic way – for “A Place in the Sun” from Vogue UK‘s May 2011 issue. Bay Garnett‘s styling is absolutely beautiful without feeling contrived or over-edited, making a well-lit Dree Hemingway look believably elegant, lonesome and privileged. The small aspects, like the reflection of a hidden hulabaloo on a black vehicle, make it unforgettable. View Post
