Heart of the City

August 23rd, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (30)

V Magazine‘s New York issue pays tribute to all the things we love about the city that never sleeps and Mario Testino creates an editorial that features both sides of NY’s stylish look; the chic urbanity of uptown and the devil may care cool of downtown. Freja Beha Erichsen, Anna SeleznevaCarmen Kass and a stunning purple haired Sasha Pivovarova, take turns portraying different elements of Manhattanite style in ‘Uptown, Downtown’ and the end result is gorgeous. See the full story when V67 hits stands September 2nd.

    This is going to be so delish!
    I can barely contain myself.

    How beguiling is Sasha?! So Daphne.
    The image of Carmen is perfection.

    Viva NYC – The subway most certainly remains a porno.

    I just wanted to comment that I had subscribed to V and Vman and they have the worst distributer. I’ve left emails and voicemails and no responses. I finally gave up and never got an issue. They did take my money in a heart beat though. I’m boycotting the magazines.

    Well, this just outshines their last issue, very excited for this issue!

    Sasha is most certainly this editorial’s star! I also think that this should put some of the Gemma/Sasha comparisons to rest. Sasha has more of a wicked fierce look, while Gemma was a little more angelic.

    Freja is the best!!

    I LOVE THIS. It’s so nice to see Mario Testino doing something so cool and edgy. His soft lit celeb portraits for US Vogue are such a bore. BUT THIS: it shows that he is an artist.

  14. GP says:

  26. carola says:

    Of course Freja owns this story.. I wonder why Sasha P is a top model, she doesn’t even look like a model.

  27. Antonio Barros says:

    Freja and Anna are gorgeous!

    @carola: modeling isn’t unidimensional

  29. JW says:

    I am with Mr. Barros. The shots that are “overcooked” do nothing for me.
