editorialesque » mariacarla + natasha make a scene

represented by women model management, agency mates natasha poly & mariacarla boscono appear editorially for the march issue of W magazine through the lens of willy vanderperre. styled by olivier rizzo, attention to lighting, silhouette & bold shots of color are well balanced with hard hitting forms of minimalism & sleek design lines. color wigs, spring stripes from prada & chairs manage to find a way into the mix as a dramatized photographic performance is seen by way of poly & boscono. as models, both mariacarla & natasha kill just about every sector of modeling imaginable. collectively & singularly they pack a powerful punch on the runway, in campaigns and, as seen here, editorially. boscono ranks as the no. 20 female model icon in fashion. of italian nationality, mariacarla has been widely known for her extensive work with dolce & gabbana & givenchy. of russian nationality, natasha poly ranks no. 2 female model within the industry’s top 50 & has been praised as one of fashion’s modern muses for her work with gucci & her indestructible reputation in high end editorial. both females appear together for the spring givenchy campaign & prove to have chemistry on camera. both women allow design vision & female form to speak on a higher level, cosmetically. i love this spread for it’s cinematic quality, very well done.

what yo’ name iz? joan smalls, irian kulikova, elsa sylvan, cato van ee, aline weber

an epic showing of model talents & hair styling tricks was shot by patrick demarchelier for vogue german’s may issue. i am, yet again, excited to see that joan smalls is edging her way into more high fashion editorial, recently being seen in italian vogue. the spread is a dope example of looks that women love to sport; we see loose curls, a bouffant behive pony tail braid & voluminous curls as joan devastates in waves with the wind machine. i love the use of lighting & the darker showcase of beauty here. dope model casting, beautiful images.

editorialesque » spellbound with kristy kaurova

kristy is represented by major model management, she was shot by billy the kidd the editorial you see here. stylistically pieced by alecia gonzalez, hair & make up were done by trevor bowden & lauren whitworth. i love this spread for many reasons. with editorial i look for lighting & depth in direction. i love a dark editorial edge & in this case, that whole concept applies. the usage of light in creating a dark space as well as shadows gives the images a much more powerful presence. lighting is everything.

editorialesque » jonathan kroppmann by hardwick

though i dont particularly agree with models having tattoos, jonathan kroppmann, represented by red model management, killed this editorial. shot by jason eric hardwick for rocket magazing, the dark element brought fourth in these images is amazing. the first photo is first for a reason, the usage of backlighting is completely inspiring. i love the lighting, or lack there of & the usage of smoke heightens the sense of mystique. completely dope.
