editorialesque » karlie kloss for vogue

american vogue darling, karlie kloss of next models ny blazes the september issue of vogue through the lens of mario testino. paying tribute to fashion’s recent eastern influence, kloss appears wig’ed & wonderful for the issue in a dramatic spread that is jawdropping by page number. i’ve always said, if one american supermodel deserves to be on the cover of american vogue, a feat which very rarely ever happens, that girl should be karlie kloss. dominating runway, campaigns & yes, editorial- kloss has demonstrated skill unlike any other female model in the game recently. for the september issue, kloss is seen in a chinese setting & looks ravishing as the main chick in her own solo spread, but it makes me wonder- why was an asian model not used for this spread?  was putting karlie in the spread an attempt to make china more acceptable in the american market? while a crop of asian models appears for vogue china, isn’t fashion diversification much more successful when it’s seen across the board? overall, karlie has undeniable photographic presence & shines in the spread- but i can’t help but think how dope this would’ve been with liu wen or shu pei. images by mario testino, with styling by tonne goodman.

editorialesque » america the beautiful by vogue

through the lens of craig mcdean, american vogue shows their patriotic side for their june issue; as tonne goodman styles this all-american themed editorial. american female models, karlie kloss & arizona muse of next models ny are joined by brazilian female models isabeli fontana & raquel zimmerman as british red-head model icon, karen elson also joins the cast. represented by women model management, karen elson is an american vogue favorite while isabeli graces the june cover of french vogue. represented by DNA models, raquel zimmermann is also a favorite of american vogue & is seen splashed across this month’s issue in the scuba-styled section of the spread. i love the feel of casual & seemingly undone glamour that is felt; though casual the spread is still very glamourous & thoughtfully executed. while i feel as though the american theme could’ve been more sharp in terms of location, had an outdoor location be considered; i love the aspects of wilderness that are added to the spreads studio setting. from the aged wood, to the leaves on the studio ground- this is a great concept that was well produced & the girls shine like stars. though not particularly groundbreaking, i admire the preservation of classic american style. great set of girls, but why not do an all-american model cast? & where’s joan? we could use some color.
