Crossover Appeal

Vogue US continues its editorial revamp with the aide of three Steven Meisel favorites. Karlie Kloss, Viktoriya Sosonkina and Katrin Thormann each make their Vogue US debut looking about as elegant and sultry as we’ve ever seen them. Leave it to Meisel to tap into the womanly side of these spirited newcomers.

    Finally something new and fresh. Enough of jumping Trentini and Zimmerman.

  2. says:

    YES, I agree with MODEL WHISPERS… enough of that Lord&Taylor and Neiman-Marcus catalogue b-s… Meisel is just simply amazing… not forgetting Karlie working it editorial after editorial!!!

    Isn’t Karlie Kloss 16yo?

  4. anna says:

    I love Karlie

    I am glad to see something different from Raquel and Caroline

    its a new generation

    katrin is booking every editorial there is. bravo for katrin. kinga is missing! 🙂

    Bottom line it’s child exploitation. There are plenty of models who are 18 and over who should have done that job. 16 is too young.

  7. Malwinowski-Piwowarski says:

    I just realized that Steven Meisel prefers to make pictures of Katrin with closed eyes.

    You seem a bit jaded. Maybe you should take a break from looking at fashion images for a while.

    Well, Betty.. i think he dont really understand the art of fashion.. and he dont understand the concept and story behind this picture.. 😉
    dont bother. 😉

    i think this is just simply nice and elegant!

    I think Kloss started making it big in the industry when she was 16 but now, she may be at least nearing/or is 18 now.

  12. Carrie says:

    Karlie Kloss is 16. But what’s the big deal? It’s a tasteful editorial. What she’s wearing is less revealing than the average swimsuit. I love it.

  13. Nik says:

    I agree Betty. (Whatever happened to, “If u don’t have anything good to say, don’t say it at all”?) On another note, I think US Vogue would be better too, if they used more models as covergirls. Yes Anne Hathaway is a gorgeous girl, but what would be the purpose of a FASHION MODEL if she can’t be featured on a FASHION MAGAZINE cover?? Imagine; US Vogue with a new star like Lakshmi or Arlenis from cover to cover. (a la Vogue Paris, February 2009) That would be epic!!

  14. Krista says:

    Karlie Kloss is so bland. But it’s nice to have something other than Trentini jumping up and down.

  15. Michael says:


    Unfortunately, not too many people in the US really care too much about fashion. They care more about celebrities than they care about clothes. So,US Vogue has adapted and mixed the two together. Not that I like seeing a celeb on every cover, it’s the exact opposite, but I also understand Vogue’s business sense. US Vogue understands that the model/fashion junkies will buy it no matter who or what is on the cover, but the other group won’t.
