editorialesque » gisele for italian vogue
by Jeremy Danté
represented by IMG, gisele bünchen appears in her featured editorial for the december issue of italian vogue. through the lens of steven meisel, we see gisele draped in an assortment of rubber in a bit of an unseen way. gisele is seemingly more relaxed & playful during the course of this image series & almost deconstructs the beauty that she is more commonly known for. shot entirely in black & white in a studio, i admire the oppostition of commercialized beauty; it allows us to see another dimension of gisele & also allows our preception of fashion to be tested. gisele closes the year with her italian vogue feature & has already begun booking covers for the top of 2011 appearing for vogue nippon. gisele defies the test of time, season after season & continues to slay in a number of ways; i doubt anyone will ever be able to surpass gisele.
