One of our most beloved models, Coco Rocha, just offered up an internet treat. Yesterday, the infamous image that Grace Coddington loved but Anna Wintour refused (in The September Issue) was posted to her blog. Steven Meisel helped the Vogue team create a stunning shot, and many people are now questioning why it got the axe. In fact, the spread in Vogue’s 2007 September Issue was much tighter and rheumatically composed than this shot. While the e-fashion world is scratching their heads, I believe that Anna made a great editorial choice here.
Vogue Italia is starting the new year with an absolutely stellar cover. You’re seeing it right, that’s Freja Beha Erichsen and Arizona Muse working as streamlined bombshells. This January 2011 issue shot was photographed by Steven Meisel in an 80’s-style Chanel ad, calling for Erichsen and Muse to wear the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 looks they debuted on Karl Lagerfeld‘s impeccable runway.
As the year comes to it’s editorial end, Tom Ford previews his six-years-late return to womenswear in “Mr. Ford Returns”. The Vogue spread was photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by the empowering Edward Enninful. The beauties are all big-time, with the likes of Karen Elson, Stella Tennant, Amber Valletta, Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik, Carolyn Murphy, and Edita Vilkeviciute in the gorgeous garments. View Post
Vogue Italia’s November cover models are – respectively – Freja Beha Erichsen and Iselin Steiro, this time at the lens of Steven Meisel. The Pat McGrath and Guido Palau-made beauties are clad in Marmot, Roberto Cavalli, laced gloves from Todd Lynn, leather garters from Erro and boots by Ann Demeulemeester. That is an impressive roundup for stylist Karl Templer.
Alex Prager is turning into Steven Meisel right in front of our magazine flicks! For W’s “Spellbound” in the November issue, stylist Carolyn Tate Angel acts as a perfect sidekick to the film still-styled photographs. Among a perfect resort wear pull, the Versace peacoat and shorts photograph so beautifully. I am now all a-flutter over the smalltime talent of Irina Lazareanu, Liza Thorn, and Jessica Joffe.
