rosie huntington-whiteley for vogue germany

represented by women model management, rosie huntington-whitely has been seen everywhere from victoria’s secret to her co-starring role in transformers. through the lens of alexi lubormirski, rosie lands a multi-cover november feature for the magazine’s november issue. while im not entirely sure how these covers will be distributed, whether they will issue special subscriber’s covers much like harper’s bazaar, or whether they will issue all three as newstand editions. while one more cover within the set remains to be seen, i have seen a low-res preview & all three are stunning. these two covers, i feel, more receptive too in terms of aesthetic beauty. i love full features on models & rosie has a winning combination. while her lips appear slightly different than the last time i seen them- i applaud the styling of jewelery & the cosmetics theme. it’s not too much, rather, just enough. as far as i have seen, rosie kills just about every cover she books so i am not surprised that they would release multiple covers. consistent delivery through performance, rosie is a star.

karmen pedaru for numéro

stunningly dark, karmen pedaru of ford models appears for issue 127 of numero thorugh the lens of greg kadel. i love when publications do a gold foiled masthead against a darkened cover shot. karmen has this heavy presence that is so stunning, she is the perfect girl for this cover, considering the styling elements. you may have recognized her through the gucci campaigns & most recently advertising for gucci’s cruise 2012 collection has surfaced in which pedaru is the star. while i love more than one fashion publication, i must say- numéro has some of the greatest covers & best editorial content. no shade to the vogue’s across the globe, but conde nast has a deeper foundation & much more established base as a commercial publication, which means they play the field with actresses & such. with numéro, there is a larger aspect of high end fashion as art that i feel coming through, consistently. recently, i took to the fashion forums & looked at numéro’s cover archive- in which is was surprised at how beautiful each cover was. cover shots are a major aspect of fashion publications because that basically the one shot to pull in consumers. numéro does it for me everytime, as they have so greatly demonstrated here. & let’s get into the ungaro torso/neck accessorie. sickening.

editorialesque » herieth paul for elle

animalistic through photographic presence & kate lanphear’s styling, herieth paul appears through the lens of KT auleta for elle magazine’s september issue. represented by women model management, herieth is of the new school of female models that channels greater bodily edge. in that, i mean she fits the bill for more experimental editorial. entereing the model realm in june of 2010, herieth originally made her debut with long hair & was re-introduced that december with a bold, bald new do. after her folicule reworking, herieth gained visibility rapidly. you might recognize her pretty little mug from her editorial bookings for black book, i-D, dazed & confused, as well as her vogue italia spread which was shot by steven meisel. teaming with meisel yet again, herieth was one of the many edgy faces to appear for the cK one fragrance campaign & followed that up with a campaign booking for diesel that same season. landing her first solo cover july of this year; there appears to be no end in sight for this tanzanian’s high fashion take over. im anticipating an increase in her model visibility for show season; as her looks fit the bill for more of the innovative labels. in her elle spread, i love the idea of fur in the desert- it’s unexpected.

editorialesque » iris strubegger + katrin thorman for vogue germany

through the lens of gregory harris for the pages of vogue germany, iris strubegger appears alongside katrin thorman in this stunningly styled editorial. styled by christiane arp, the two make a powerful combination & i must say, it’s nice to see iris. both represented by women model management, iris is seemingly the posterchild for supermodel androgyny. here, in the spread thorman & strubegger exude sexual energy together in a combination of masculine & feminine designs. beautiful use of studio backdrop & vivid use of lighting, i find the images tremendously inspiring. artistically, a number of elements including grooming, make-up & yes, styling are perfectly combined for the pages of german fashion publication.

editorialesque » liu wen for vogue china

a staple in terms of model casting for vogue china, there hasn’t been an issue without liu wen of marilyn model managment for a significant amount of time. here, wen appears editorially through the lens of lachlan bailey. with an urban edge, liu is photographed in motion wearing some of fall’s greatest fall pieces. from the sleek pony tail to the metallic make-up- the urban theme is executed well while pieces from a wide range of collections are presented. while i like liu & admire the direction taken for this editorial; i wish the spread was taken to the next level. the use of natural lighting, likely enhanced with reflectors & such, plays well against stoned stairs & is greatly complimented by architecture. these aspects could’ve been much more focused on & mirrored through the clothes. the sportmax pieces that were pulled, seen in black, have the most stylistic relativity when considering the set location but much of what is seen treads the line of boring. liu has the model potential, we’ve seen it before- as have we with the photographic work of lachlan bailey. though i like the spread, there is a difference between that & love.

ming xi for vogue china

appearing through the lens of daniel jackson, ming xi of elite models lands her second cover & first solo cover for vogue china, for the month of august. vogue china has had an incredibly interesting pattern & wining streak with covers & editorials for the past year in my book. while no publication is perfect through & through, the cover of this issue is slightly off but the editorial content delivers, where the cover lacks. commercially clean, the cover is a clear indication of what sells in china- polished females & fun fashion. styled by tiina laakkonen, the cover proves to be a powerful addition to ming growing portfolio of ad campaigns, covers & editorial spreads. chinese herself, ming is a favored female among chinese publications.

editorialesque » snejana onopka for vogue japan

classical chic is seen for the pages of vogue japan’s june issue, which sees snejana onopka through the lens of glen luchford. styled by anastasia barbieri, with hair & make-up by marc lopez & inge grognard; the spread is an inspiring set of black & white fashion pieces with incredible lighting. polished to perfection, there is something so beautiful about this ‘reluctant mistress’ spread. im leaning towards the fact that the combined elements of photography & style are fused incredibly well. there is such a strong message of sophistication, in the clothes that are pulled, in the way the make-up is applied, subtle & still a perfect accentuation. i live & love these forms of glamour that have been greatly represented here. i applaud all parties who contributed to the birth of this spread. inspired, tremendously by how sharp & chic this has been produced. represented by silent models, snejana hails from the ukraine & can be recognized from her recent vogue paris features & campaign spots with both etro & emillio pucci eyewear. obsessed with these aesthetics, for real.
