Into the Groove

June 21st, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (33)

Vogue Russia serves up a dose of in your face beauty with a lively editorial from Terry Tsiolis starring Sedene Blake, Jeneil Williams, Reina Montero, Shena Moulton and Aminata Niaria. The studio shoot is elevated by Simon Robins‘ color coordinated styling; pieces from Lagerfeld, Viktor and Rolf and Topshop are mixed together to create a series of seamless ensembles, but the clothes aren’t the only standout. Each of the girls brings her own flair to the story with graceful and energetic poses; whether they’re fighting over a camo-fanny pack or moving to the rhythm, they look stunning.

    I LOVE!! Just Beautiful..good job ladies!

  13. Mathew says:

    @Trevor, I agree with you. It makes me mad too that the black models all got cast together instead of integrated into edits with girls of all colors. But I guess its better then nothing.

    I love the second picture.

  14. @felipe1999 says:

    great black models they call more attention than the clothes

  15. fan says:

    shena moulton is also in this editorial, and looks amazing…why wasn’t she given credit?

  16. fan says:

  17. Nick says:

  18. LD says:

    YESSSS!!! I never really get hype about models but this lovely. I too want to models of all color integrated on a regular basis.

  19. Miyoshi says:

    Great. I love it! But Like people have said before, I want to see models of every color together for spreads on a regular basis. This story is just amazing though.

  20. Reina says:

    Not only black girls are only casted as a gang, they always have cultural and stereotypical connotations to themselves.
    Why do we always have to see a warrior – military personality?
    And why do they have to be fighting?
    And their African-inspired headpieces are just too boring and saddening to see.

    This is foul representation and something has to be done.

  21. Arimbi says:

    It’s so exquisitely divine. Ok, shame on you American Vogue! The russian really got it goin’ on!

  22. Jehh says:

    woo! I am so proud that there is COLOUR in this editorial (speaking in terms of dark skinned persons!)

    This makes me so happy that we are breaking ground in terms of beginning to accept other cultures.

  23. Mathew says:

    as far as I can remember, this is the only editorial featuring black models in vogue russia (of course with the exception of the Naomi issue…but as a supermodel of epic status, she kinda does not count).

    I like the step forward with an all black casting but I just think it will snap back to the same old thing next month. I feel that when magazines do this (like the all black issue of Italian Vogue, the ID Cover with Chanel, Jourdan etc), they are trying to make a huge bold statement and get critics of their back by just saturating one whole issue or editorial.

    Or maybe I am just running my mouth….but I would love to hear more opinions from the other faithful readers like me.

    I like the fact that models of color are getting cast together in High profile editorials. Better then just one token model being cast in a HF spread with a group of white models imo. But I do agree that there should be more diversity in most spreads. These models don’t just give one blank expression, or look mean or too happy. I think these girls are giving us fierce, lovely & a lil bit of effortlessness. So getting this editorial!

  32. wayne says:

    damn i love these girls ,wow sedene , jeniel and young shena moulton all jamaica born ladies , girls you do your thing , you guys are the best.

  33. Treacle says:

    Like someone mentioned above, yes the models call more attention than the clothes.. which isn’t always a good thing.. I barely checked the clothes, but I love the spread(s)..
