Vintage Appeal

January 5th, 2011 Posted by Janelle comments (46)

Vogue Italia kicks 2011 off right with a beautiful vintage inspired cover and corresponding editorial. Steven Meisel and Karl Templer, look back to the days when fashion shows were intimate affairs; just a small room with models carrying cards bearing the number of each look. The focus was entirely on the fashion, not the celebrities in the front row or any other distractions. This story is a treat for anyone who loves clothes – looks by Lanvin, Chanel and Vuitton come to life in Meisel’s photos. As always the model selection is top notch, with VI first timers Anais Mali, Fei Fei Sun, Arizona Muse and Herieth Paul, joining regulars Kinga Rajzak and Freja Beha Erichsen.

    I’m getting a little tired of seeing Freja everywhere with the same poses. But very happy to see Fei Fei Sun doing VI, she’s my favourite asian model.

  7. Charlotte says:

    Kinga’s outfits are awful, but she is working it!
    I love the cover, and have to admit that Arizona is growing on me quickly! Love her look!
    Anais, Herieth, and Fei Fei are breathtaking!
    What a great start to the year! Hopefully Meisel keeps up the good work!

    I feel as if Sun Fei Fei and Anais Mali were robbed of a cover: their shots are just stunning. I hope Anais has a great season.

  11. Nádia says:

  13. Rendell S says:

    … my favorite asian model is Tao Okamoto and she should have been in this editorial … but have to say Fei Fei is stunning in this editorial and a complete standout

  14. Hasaan says:

    Herieth looks amazing in that gucci number, she is going to kill in Paris this year!

  15. anlabe says:

    Wow, Arizona is a gorgeous woman and a very good model.
    And i’m so happy to see Sun Fei Fei!
    This editorial is breathtakingly good.
    Keep up the good work Meisel.

  16. D. says:

    The clothes are portrayed really well here. Mission accomplished. Arizona takes the cake on this one, and Fei Fei is close behind. Kinga is making an awesome comeback.

  17. anlabe says:

    Shouldn’t Arizone be already included in the top 50? YSL, Prada, Vogue Italia (cover), Vogue UK….. m a j o r.

  18. Mitel says:

    Herieth and FeiFei steal it, cannot wait to see Herieth in a single girl story

  19. Hasaan says:

    Herieth and Fei Fei on the cover would have made this the issue of they year!

  26. HannaV says:

    awesome photos and beautiful clothes!! the most glamorous in my opinion is Fei Fei Sun

  27. Phi says:

    I would much prefer to see Fei Fei and Arizona on the cover…freja failed this cover, arizona is owning her ….and fei fei’s shots are absolutely gorgeous

  28. TKO says:

    im sorry ladies, but FEI FEI SUN totally deserved the cover… those shots of her look soooo stunnning

  29. LD says:

    Herieth, Anais, and Fei Fei are such a pleasant surprise for this kind of editorial, especially being newcomers. Arizona Muse’s is kind of obvious, not that she doesn’t look amazing as well.

    noonoo; I toootally agree! What a missed opportunity, all girls on the cover would have been phenomenal.

  30. Lissy says:

    Ohhhh!!!! I really really love this!

  39. Kelley says:

    does anyone know who did the hair and makeup? its astounding

  40. Gwendolyn says:

    I’m obsessed with Fei Fei Sun’s look….wow. Also, the second picture in the editorial (the one right above Fei Fei) is FANTASTIC…What a pose! I need to pick up this issue of VI

  41. Emma says:

    omg… I love Sun Fei Fei!!! She’s absolutely gorgeous! Very versatile!

  42. IS THIS IT? models review says:

    Oh my, I’m in the middle of nothing (hehe or something like that…) these days, so this time I still have to wait few days for VI… D’OH! :/
    btw this looks interesting, and I pretty like the idea.

  43. Seraphine Angel says:

    Really FASHION!!!

  44. Jennifer says:

    I want to buy this issue! It really LOOKS retro, I thought it was Pat Cleveland in one of the photos, or Chris Royer… So cool… I love the way they are holding the numbers. I love the whole stylized runway thing. I met a model from the sixties and she showed me how they used to walk and pose, it was SO cool, very very stylized, like a dance.

    Kiera Knightley is on the cover of February’s edition.
