editorialesque » julia stegner for vogue germany

by Jeremy Danté

represented by IMG, julia stegner appears in her feature editorial for the pages of vogue germany. shot for the may issue by greg kadel, with styling by christine arp, stegner appears bronzed & exposed to the sun, using male models as props while dresses in evening wear in the middle of the desert. the fringe, the fur, the animal print- it was all very glamourous & well balanced with the rugged elements of the shoots surrounding- metal, punching bags, combat boots, male models & all. i am very attracted to the concept of using male models as props, in female editorial- it’s a statment of sorts. in most professions, males are thought off as the dominating force- from the rap game, to the football field to the board room; women have been widely known to struggle in aspects of business, having the deal with discrimation & underpay in certain industries, to some degree; but in fashion, the female rules. fashion is dominated by women; designer are inspired by feminine poise & the glossed pages of millions of magazines across the world glamourize the idea of being a woman- a fearless woman, one who isn’t afraid to take charge & talk shit while dressed to the nines. i feel that being reflected in this spread. love.
