Agyness Deyn.
Jamie Bochert.
Daphne Guinness.

Only Steven Meisel could bring together three of fashion’s most inspirational forces: the trio shines on the cover of February’s Vogue Italia, in coordinated yet distinctive looks and the accompanying editorial is sure to be a showstopper.

Is 2010 the year of Abbey Lee Kershaw? The Aussie model continues her unstoppable editorial domination with not one, but two covers of Pop. Shot by famed artist, Richard Prince, the covers feature Abbey looking very wild west and almost reminiscent of Sam Haskin’s classic ‘Cowboy Kate’. Which cover will you be picking up?

This very second, models from around the world are descending in droves upon NYC. One young man who doesn’t have far to travel is 17 year old Briane (pronounced Brian) Hatcher from Queens, New York. Casting director Michelle Lee is a fan of the music loving student booking him 2 consecutive seasons for the Marc by Marc Jacobs shows. With the appearance of his first major campaign and set to model full time this summer, it looks like it’s going to be quite a year for Mr. Hatcher.

Peter Lindbergh‘s photographic style is instantly recognizable: all you need to do is take one look at his latest story in Numero to see all the hallmarks of his work. The dramatic black and white images with their cinematic scope make, Anna Selezneva seem larger than life, but there is still something delicate about them, once again Lindbergh brings out the very best in his subjects.
