river viiperi + sebastian sauvé for russian gq style

appearing for a shared cover of russian GQ style, soul artist agency mates river viiperi & sebastian sauvé are seen through the lens of arnaldo anaya-lucca. groomed by yoichi tomizawa, with styling by igor garanin, both boys appear outfitted in the insanely popular SS11 prada collection. of spanish nationality, river viiperi currently ranks as fashion’s no. 35 male model in the game being seen for campaigns & covers for the likes of everyone from tommy hilfiger & calvin klien to VMAN. of american nationality, sebastian sauvé continues to develop a larger model presence as well, being seen everywhere from campaigns for frankie morello & zara to his editorial work with l’officiel hommes germany, esquire, i-D & independent publication, dansk. while i, personally, prefer river over sebastian in terms of physical beauty, both prove to be a winning combination & fitting cover cast.

karlie kloss + jourdan dunn for i-d

when martin luther king said he had a dream, i think he was referring to this cover. more specifically, im talking about the point we’ve come to in history, within that history, the diversified culture we now live in has successfully trickled into the confines of the fashion industry. represented by women model management black, british female model, jourdan dunn appears alongside white, american born karlie kloss of next models ny for i-D’s latest cover series. what’s so beautiful about this cover is the aspect of reality it touches upon. when the camera stops flashing & the studio lights dims; when the set is wrapped & clothes are put back on- these two girls are actual friends. i think so much of the industry, shit, life in general is so obsessed with the concept of competition. those reeling spurs of fights, drama & blowouts- we ain’t talking at the salon either, wear my love for beauty thin. there is nothing more enchanting than beautiful, powerful females that dominate while being able to co-exist as equals in the same industry & share a cover, along with a spotlight & a friendship with one another. here, i wasn’t particularly taken by the nudity, nor did i pay much attention to the bold prada stripes that covered jourdan & karlie’s nude torso’s rather, i smiled & said- this is fashion. as our world rapidly changes through turmoil, natural disaster & manic press coverage all at once- it’s things like this that make you stop & say, ‘damn, look where we are, look at what we’ve done’. karlie & jourdan gracing a cover that is shared is a dream come true & both females are wildly successful in their own right. while we haven’t even entered the mid-way point of the of 2011, this is the cover of the year for me. this is, by definition, true beauty.

through the lens of karl lagerfeld, freja beha erichsen & arizona muse appear together again for the march cover of numéro. shot in black & white, a style favored by largerfeld, the two are a fashion publication favorite this year. seen previously for italian vogue, im wondering when arizona will grace her own cover, without the assistance or company of freja. muse is a very interesting case of rising models. debuting this past spring, muse exploded on the runway as an exclusive for prada & walked for 23 others shows during her debut. shortly after, muse debuted as the face of yves saint laurent’s spring campaign & booked italian vogue january of this year. in an upward shift, arizona appears on this cover & has come off another explosive show season. an american female & resident of brooklyn, where she resides with her son, arizona is represented by next models ny. as for freja, she continues to slay editorially, on the runway & in advertising campaigns as a favorite & regular in american & british vogue. as a known favorite of karl lagerfeld, freja holds the rank as fashion’s no. 2 female model & is represented by IMG. her look of androgyny & versatility has allowed her to break barriers & represent a new form of modern beauty.
