Quantcast

Shadowplay

August 9th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (47)

Mario Sorrenti goes above and beyond for Vogue Italia, with a sensual set of images starring Abbey Lee Kershaw. The shadowy look of the pictures coupled with Jane How‘s revealing styling makes for a subtly sexy take on fall’s sheer trend. The story also manages to present Abbey Lee in a different light, taking the free-spirited bohemian and transforming her into a polished sophisticate.

    she looks magnificent

  2. Nigel S. says:

    Oh my Truman…I don’t know if I am more stunned by Madame Abbey or by you!

    She does look magnificent…..
    Such a strange being she is. Truly hitting her stride as of late and I love this sort of rehash and stylization of her Gucci F/W 11′ hairstyling. It reminds me of it atleast.

    Werk Abbey, werk.

  3. Gustavo says:

    flattering pics, very unusual for the often commomplace editorials in which she´s featured

  5. Marc says:

    Boring! Sometimes I don’t get Abbey, she only has one face for everything she never changes

  6. natasha says:

    love abbey

  7. Anne D. says:

    she looks like she gained weight.

  8. Matimus says:

    Oh my gosh! Shes naked!! I would have never expected that. (Sarcastic undertones?)

    But in all seriousness she’s gorgeous and more power to her for workin what she’s got. And she definitely has it.

  9. Marty says:

    I have to argee with trumancapote, shes wonderful

  10. Ger says:

    That second picture looks surrealistic, beautiful Abbey Lee…

  11. Diem says:

    I thought it was Anna Selezneva when I saw it on the front page. Abbey looks amazing nonetheless.. very nice !

  12. Bitato says:

    she seem boring now :(

  13. GP says:

    Gorgeous!!! Love the 2nd photo.

  14. carola says:

    Gorgeous girl, and I’m still so bored with her.. I think I find her maybe a little too pretty and bubbly, there’s no dark side, girls like Jac and Frida G have this dark side you see in their pics, no matter how incredibly gorgeous they look, and Abbey doesn’t have it, plus she looks so young for her age.

  15. IS THIS IT? models review says:

    My fav thing in this Vogue Italia for sure – nothing to die for, but good. It will sound at least crazy (I mean: as everyone, I had already seen “quite abundant material” of her…), but I have to admit in the last months (since her Pop magazine appearance I guess) I’ve been really surprised by Abbey… and absolutely for good.

  18. jake says:

    not her best editorial, i like the second shot but thats all. her face is too wide in the third

  19. Nico says:

    Loving her. This looks exquisit.

  20. rick lewis. says:

    what a body so sexy top to bottom i want to worship her, every inch and make her my goddess. rick

  21. Robert says:

    Fantastic images!

  22. MissB says:

    She’s a beautiful girl- no doubt. But why does everything have to be naked? Does no one else realize what’s going on here? (here being the industry…) We’re taking little girls, not woman, little 14 year old girls, turning them prematurely into women & as soon as they are old enough taking their clothes off because it’s “art” or it’s “European.” What is is is child pornography.

  23. stace says:

    I agree with Marc.

  24. Libby says:

    There are 2 soon to be supermodels – Abbey and Karlie – love !!!

  25. Janelle says:

    While I understand what you’re saying about underaged models being nude Miss B, but Abbey is 23 years old and if she feels comfortable being nude in an editorial then it is really her prerogative.

  26. peterModelObsessed says:

    I always view Abbey as Child Pornography but I’m afraid Janelle is right!

  27. Bertrand says:

    I agree 100% with MissB’s comment about child porno images, plus I like Matimus’ saractic remark about Abbey being naked (once again) lol

  28. Yancy says:

    She’s a grown woman and she likes to get naked. People need to stop being prudish, she looks great! Nudity is a part of fashion – clothing is all about the body so why not show it off every now and again. I’m tired of boring, asexual editorials where the girls look like drones, I like seeing a little sex appeal and I think these pictures are very tastefully done. This is not some Terry Richardson garbage.

  29. MissB says:

    I don’t think I am at all prudish Yancy. You’re right, she has a great body & looks beautiful naked. But isn’t fashion about clothing? When there was a little bit of nudity in editorials it was something different, but now, it’s more difficult to find a totally clothed editorial than it is one with nudity. Sex appeal that is accomplished without the obvious boob shot is much more artful in my humble opinion and takes a lot more talent.

  30. c says:

    The second image reads: indulgence i.e mirroring the fur coat on her back. This isn’t distasteful – sexuality makes up a lot of who we are, for the most part; it is prudish to raise those views in reaction to these shots. I think that MissB is off the mark.

  31. The Editor says:

    i love all these images

  32. crybaby says:

    a) she’s 23 year old.
    b) wtf is everyone’s issue with nudity? This is the source of the problem. If people just embraced the fact that we all have “private parts” and stop teaching our children that they should be ashamed of their bodies then this wouldn’t be an issue. The fact that you’re all making a big stink about this is so backwards.
    c) get over it.

  33. Eamon says:

    Nudity does not = sex.

  34. JW says:

    Nice work and though T & A does not bother me, I do not need it either.

  35. henri says:

    Does abbey’s boobs make people blind?
    She doesn’t make the pictures look great, that’s the amazing work of the photographer.
    Talk about him, not her.

  36. Antonio Barros says:

    Wooow! These pictures are amazing! Great model, perfect light!
    I love it! :)

    Bravo Sorrenti!!!!

  38. Bored says:

    Nice editorial. I love Shadows and people who throw shade. ;)

  39. Nádia says:

    Abbey + Sorrenti= perfect combination!

    Amazing editorial! The styling (or lack of it) helps the environment!

  40. GP says:

    Naked or not, she is perfect!!!

  41. taylor says:

    THEY ALL LOOK REALLY GOOD

  42. kurt vonnegut says:

    jane how is incredible

  43. Hollywood Sentinel says:

    beautiful model and images here, we were born naked and some will die naked, nudity is a part of life and art, and fashion is art…pornography is defined as that which a community finds offensive, and there is little more offensive than attempting to censor freedom loving adults who create life and love and art and those who appreciate it

  44. Melody says:

    While I find nudity in editorials very intriguing and eyecatching, I have to agree with MissB that every now and then, an editorial that consists of a fully clothed model that exudes sensuality is breathtaking. Abbey is beautiful. Many of her editorials are beautiful (and many do involve her sans-clothes). Often times, one can have too much of a good thing. When one finds something that fits, they tend to exploit it. I’d like to see more of Abbey with clothes. She has big boobs. For a girl so thin, that’s hard to come by. I fit the normal BMI range, but mine are significantly smaller, and I’m jealous. No, I don’t think she gained weight. I feel like she’s been thinner and thinner since she first started.

  47. TpC says:

    what a great shot (the first one) how the photographer captured that perfect shadow that follows the curve of her face!
