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.

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 entereing the model realm in june of 2010, herieth originally made her debut with long hair & was re-introduced that december with a bold, bald new do.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 for vogue germany

the september cover for vogue germany’s september issue, iris strubegger of women model management, kills her featured editorial as she appears draped in couture. along the lines of new school androgyny that i mentioned in my previous post, iris is also of that aesthetic archetype. the dark elements of the images contrast well with the high society backdrop & stunningly chic couture designs- this is the kind of shit that you just don’t even need to discuss- you look at it & it’s stunning. visually heartpounding & striking executed- iris exemplifies what it takes to exude high fashion & serves her role to the highest degree as their september cover girl. ranking as fashion’s no. 10 female model- iris fuckn murdered this.

natasha poly for russian vogue, september

shot by hedi slimane, russian supermodel natasha poly graces the cover her native of russia for their version of vogue. with what appears to be an overextension of cosmetic application, the cover is a sneak peak at the feature editorial, which stars poly & focuses on dramatized make-up with all sorts of theatricality. represented by women model management, natasha is of the supermodel new school & is a beast when it comes to runway bookings, campaigns and, as evidenced here, covers. i love to see publications representing with like models for the september covers. you know, british models for british vogue, russian models for russian vogue. it works, the girls represent & it’s always excited to see which girls are selected. though i am a bit dissapointed in the culmination of creative elements of this cover; from what i’ve seen the editorial content from this issue makes up for it. the heavy liner & black fur against the platinum blonde could’ve worked but somehow, it’s not. russian vogue began print in 1998 with editor-in-chief, aliona doletskaya in place & since 2010, victoria davydova has taken the helm. considered the most authoritive fashion publication in russia, the magazine has notoriously listed naomi campbell as a contributing editor & continues to push the creative envelope. between natasha & slimane, this could’ve been better.

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.

daria strokous for vogue russia

represented by women model management, daria graces has had a consistent string of recent hits which have earned her a no. 19 ranking within the top 50 female model ranking in fashion. shot by mariano vivanco, you may recognize daria from her runway rampage- as she walked the couture shows for dior, valentino, alais, elie saab & giambattista valli. strongly visible in all aspects of high end fashion, aside from landing this august cover, daria graces W korea’s august cover & has booked the FW11 jil sander campaign; a return for strokous considering that she also booked the sander label’s spring campaing. the cover shot is polished & refined, vivianco hits his mark especially well as the russian model sits poised. as a slight indication of what may be revealed behind the cover, the cosmetic elements channel a mod, twiggy vibe. i like the dark nails & the heavy liner but have never been a fan of flat hair. originally signed to IMG in 2007, daria is seemingly hitting her stride which can see her star rising for the upcoming show season. while not a completely outstanding face amidst the dozens of girls who look similar to her- all it takes is a campaign & a mean ass runway walk to take the spot. real shit, after being shot by steven meisel & becoming the face of prada, what else is really left?  put this one on your radar & we’ll find out.

isabeli fontana for vogue paris

through the commerciallly pure styling vision of emmanuelle alt, editor in chief of french vogue, isabeli fontana appears for the publication’s june cover. shot by mert + marcus, bronzed skin & vivid color take the stage as isabeli appears stunning looking something like linda evangelista. while the cover shot & editorial feature have been compared to photographic work by steven meisel, i love & can clearly distinguish which work is under the direction of alt. in the fashion publication game, the editors, especially the editors in chief, have this unbreakable reign once put into position & french vogue has an incredibly interesting timeline as of late concerning this heirarchy. emmanuelle alt, once the fashion editor at french vogue, you may remember as taking her place as chief february of this year. after replacing the void left from carine roitfeld, roitfeld herself has addressed the issue & revealed some interesting rumors in a recent interview had with the financial times. roitfeld broke new ground as the head of french vogue, allowing transgendered models the platform for fashion fame & used excessive nudity in tandem with jaw dropping, high-end glamour. for this roitfeld says that xavier romatet, heavy-hitting president of condé nast france, “didn’t like” her use of experimentation at the magazine. granted roitfeld has moved on, announcing projects with barney’s new york, what i respect about roitfeld is her approach to fashion as art. throughout the interview, roitfeld had discussed everything from her ex-friend editor in chief to mcqueen to galliano- the one thing that seemed to be a recurring theme was the concept of ‘artistry’. this approach resonates greatly with me & mirrors my own approach & for that i will always respect carine roitfeld. granted, my respect for roitfeld doesn’t effect the love i have for the commercial polish alt has broughten to the table- it’s just a different vision. noticeably, the re-introduction of french vogue has been seen under the direction of alt & through beautiful execution, this cover demonstrates that with fervor. all in all, the cover is stunning & with time things change. from french seduction to commercialized beauty at the end of the day the fashion industry has been built to sell fantasies of beauty; products both alt & roitfeld have sold incredibly well. i can easily separate the vision of both & for that, im inspired.
