Cowgirl Blues

May 26th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (23)

Liya Kebede brings her dynamic presence to the pages of i-D, with an edgy editorial by Amy Troost. Dressed in an eclectic mix of cowgirl, scuba and sporty styles chosen by Alastair McKimm, Liya looks tough and in control, further proof that she can pull off even the most unusual looks – who else could make a leather cowboy hat and mesh top combination look completely natural.

    Even in a youthful story, Liya has the most regal presence. She stands head and shoulders above everyone else.

    All Hail LIYA

  4. The Editor says:

  5. Gustavo says:

    maybe the cowgirls from this new era are taking either lozoff or prozak because they look depressed :/

    She doesnt look tough to me. She looks awkward and uncomfortable. Is it just me?

  11. Mike says:

    No Peter, that was my impression too. I’m not thrilled with it.

    I love Liya, but I want to be fair to all models….

    Such a strange choice of model for this story. Thta’s not meant as a criticism of the sublime Ms Kebebe who is posibly the most beautiful women in the world but “an eclectic mix of cowgirl, scuba and sporty styles” really isn’t her thing.

    This shoot is crying out for Sessilee.

  17. Keesean says:

    I love Liya, but the styling here is kinda lacking, non ?

  18. peterModelObsessed says:

    Sessilee, of course !

    You’re right Baby C. Sesilee I’m almost convinced is one of the best model alongside Gisele.

    That Lopez Girl can wear a trash bag and still en Vogue!

    Umm excuse me but I posted a comment

    It said, “I love Liya, but this is dreadful”

    Did it seriously get censored??!!? Seriously?

    Wow, talk about thin-skinned. Typical.

    Grow up jerks, constructive criticism is a positive thing.

    Kisses for your pain.

    Peter, u r my new best friend!!! (so funny to me) I too think that Sessilee’s energy is needed for this edit. She just brings it!! I love Mrs. Kebede (the most regal beauty), and I dont think this is bad, but I would have rather seen Sessilee.

  22. Mberry says:

    I luv u so much liya. u look soooooooooo beautiful. so tell me, wats the secret?

  23. TpC says:
