by Jeremy Danté
megamodel in the making, alessandra ambrosio appears for the december issue of vogue méxico. seen through the lens of stewart shining, ambrosio is represented by elite models & has had an impressive year in high end editorial. for this cover, we see the expected image of what we know as alessandra ambrosio, the victoria’s secret angel; not a hair out of place, skin gleaming beautifully, a sexy slinky navy dress caressing brazilian curves- you know, commercial beauty. while i love the cover for it’s hardcore adherence to stereotypical glamour, i also celebrate the versatility that alessandra has shown for this year & much of last year. her editorial work with vogue nippon, giampalo sgura & sølve sundsbø were exceptionally impressive; as we seen elements of an overextended forms of beauty. with willy vanderperre & russian vogue, alessandra seduced us once more & she covered love magazine through the lens of mert + marcus adding a face to the title of, angel. with russh magazine she allowed fashion to transcend as art in body & i’ve grown to appreciate her skills immensely. topping off a great year, this cover leads her into the new year with a renewed sense of fashion respect in my book. i expect her to gain more high end fashion notoriety in the coming year. one of the baddest bitches outta brazil since gisele- alessandra is a bombshell.
