editorialesque » karolina kurkova for vogue italia

by Jeremy Danté

represented by IMG models, karolina kurkova appears more subdued for the pages of vogue italia. photographically interpreted by steven klein, the spread focuses on the bold contrast of black & white as kurkova appears decked in all black with a black lip to match. appropriately titled, “black”, i love that the spread took an unexpected direction. most times, im expecting unending forms of glamour, over the top styling & an extreme representation of beauty- so it is nice to switch things up & play things down in opposition. discovered by miuccia prada, kurkova continues to thrive in her ranks as a supermodel icon thanks to her consistent track record & non-stop bookings. a bit of 90’s grunge felt here as well.
