The Eyes Have It

July 8th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (26)

Kirsi Pyrhonen is quickly becoming the go to girl for vintage inspired editorials; Paolo Roversi enlists the haunting Finnish beauty for an Irving Penn inspired shoot in the latest Vogue Italia. Kirsi brings the elegant black and white studio shoot to life with her serene presence and poses and Roversi works his signature magic.

    Gorgeous, classic shoot. Would have been even better if Roversi still had access to his polaroid film, but it seems his digital means are getting a bit closer to the look he wants. Well cast, well styled. Simply beautiful. Referential but not overly so.

    Just lovely. Beautiful portraits by Roversi. I can definitely see the refined Penn influence.

    she looks so bored and her face is the same just different poses.

  10. The Editor says:

    she has the face for it she looks old world, lovely

  11. Josh says:

    I think Kirsi has huge potential, but she doesn’t quite know how to model yet. The poses feel too set up, like someone put her in these positions. I am not trying to be negative, I think she is gorgeous, but she is just relying on pretty at the moment.

  12. Models and Style says:

    the nordish girls just make it again and again..blowing me away with their potential.
    such beautiful shots for Kirsi!

    “Off-topic : Could You please give Suvi some credit for the Elle France cover?”

    1st it’s Elle and for 2nd it doesn’t look good.

    Kirsi has it. but it remains to be seen if she has staying power to last, at this point.

    Beautiful model. Girls from Finland rock.

    gorgeous. Love it

  22. k says:

    I don’t know…I’m much more impressed with Paolo Roversi’s composition and photo texture than I am with Kirsi Pyrhonen. She’s pretty and all, but she’s got basically one look going on here.

  23. Nelson Almeida says:

    i don’t know why but i love that look!

  24. Toni K says:

    k: “…but she’s got basically one look going on here”. Indeed. Take a look at Roversi’s jobs here at You’ll find his way quite static, and models has one face. Maybe different angles, but still one face. That’s the style.

    to lily

    personally i think that in case of Suvi, Elle is an downgrade of her career.

    I like it, she gives elegance to shoot.
