Retro Glam

May 14th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (24)

Sessilee Lopez is known for her ability to pull off the most dramatic runway looks with aplomb but every now and then it is nice to see her softer side. Alexi Lubomirski channels the glamorous photographic style of Slim Aarons as he shoots Sessilee looking very posh for the pages of Harpers Bazaar. The colorful editorial highlights Sessilee’s grace and looks appealingly retro.

  6. raie says:

    her, and jourdan dunn are the prettiest african american girls ive ever seen

  7. redredruby says:

    her smile is bothering me in these pics…its a little off.

  8. vikturjavier says:

    jourdan is british, not african american.

  9. Alex says:

    Sesilee is stunning. i heart her. she really shows what a model is. versatile:)

  10. TOKO says:

    Actually, jourdan is both Jamaican, British and American as lots of others….and she is not and i mean NOT as good as Sesilee – you can’t class them on the same level.
    She good, but Sess is by far the better

    Sess,

    I loveeeeeeeee to see more of this from her so that she can start taking campaigns.. she is exotic-ly beautiful… breathtaking to see this, just like when she walk for VS and the flowers showered down on her, and slow pull from the camera was WOW.

    Okay, her agents needs more shoots like for her, because there is NO WAY IN HELL AND EARTH THAT MADONNA SHOULD HAVE REPRESENTED THE LOUIS VUITTON AD, THAT SHOULD REALLY SHOULD HAVE GONE TO SESSILEE…I FELT VERY ANGRY ABOUT THAT. BECAUSE HERE IS A TALENT THAT WHEN A CAMPAIGN LIKE SHOWS UP, THE RIGHT GIRL SHOULD HAVE WON THE PRIZE. MARC COULD HAVE HER, CHANEL, JOURDAN, AND ARLENIS IN THAT CAMPAIGN AND MADE IT MOMENT IN HISTORY, BUT THEY DON’T THINK LIKE THAT SAME… THIS IS WHY I WANT TO BE A AGENT OR CASTING DIRECTOR INSTEAD OF A DESIGNER, I THINK I HAVE A NECK AND ARTISTIC ABILITY TO MAKE THIS STUFF HAPPEN. BUT FASHION IS “STILL” VERY SLOW… HELLO MUICCA PUT TAO IN A ONLY CAMPAIGN, RALPH SHOULD HAVE HILARY AS HIS NEW GIRL, AND VERSACE SHOULD ONLY TANYA.D, NATASHA.P, GISELE, DARIA OR ISABELI OPEN HER SHOWS UNITL SHE FINDS A NEW CATWALK QUEEN THAT MOVES SEXY FOR THE BRAND. ABBEY NEEDS TO BE IN DEVELOPMENT FOR CALVIN KLEIN, I COULD GO ON … LIKE WHAT ABOUT THE BEAUTIFUL MEXICANS OF (AFRICAN HERITAGE) THAT LIVES IN MEXICO… WOW! THERE IS THOUGHT. GRACIE IS NEEDS BE MORE VISIBLE… SHE COULD VERY WELL FOLLOWING IN LIYA KEBEDE FOOTSEPS GIVEN A CHANCE… COME ON FASHION…

    What’s wrong with a few who thought Jourdan is African American!?

    Do research….

    Anyway, good to see Sessilee had show soft side but, these pictures still look strong yet soft, though.

  15. Ninabzz says:

    the last pic is wonderful…

  16. Daniel says:

    I love to see Arlenis and Sessilee because I am myself, Dominican. But I have to be honest, Sessilee is the better model. That girl can give pose and that girl can definetly give FACE. I love Arlenis but that girl’s face looks exactly the same in every photo. She just looks like a deer in the headlights. I know she’s just starting off and we need to give her some time to model and know how to work her angles but for goodness sake Arlenis. Practice makes perfect! I’m still a supportive fan and am always rooting for my two fresh faced Dominicans supermodels;.)

  17. Christopher Y says:

    her cheekbones are insane!!! and yes, i’ve seen Sesilee in person, she looks stunning in ALL – in person, on runway, in editorial… YES, she needs to book a campaign man… it’d be interesting to see her in Jil Sander…

    brucegisele: I agree with you… i think we should see sesilee in a campaign with arlenis, liya, jourdann and chanel… but with them featured in this season’s Louis Vuitton ad would be too literal… it’d be them in the African-inspired collection, ALTHOUGH I have to say, it may translate A LOT better than Madonna sitting and bending in the vintage restaurant-bistro…

  18. vikturjavier says:

    Hey Christopher Y,

    Love your comment. But your last sentence is what brucegisele was getting at. It would have been more dynamic and directional because it would show shades of the african diaspora and could make a fierce comment about modernity in Africa and the world. I loved it when the campaigns used to be about statements not just girls standing there.

  19. sara says:

    very beautiful:) I think she gonna be very big

  20. sam says:

    bruce gisele i completly agree with you!!!! , i think u’d make a great agent,and understand the industry, it’s just that the designers these days seem to make the poorest decisions, their obviously using modonna in their brand bcoz she’s a celebrity(its wat their all doing) and tanay d, gisele, natasha poly, etc. should be opening catwalks bcoz their the ones that walk lyk catwalkers in the industry/ also sessile has a great walk 2, and abby lee is a great face for CALVIN KLIEN obiously, shes totaly the calvin klien look, but CK is only booking celebrities as their dominant faces:( thats why i wish we had smarter agents, AGENTS BACK IN THE DAYS USED TO TELL THEIR CLIENTS IF SHE’S NOT ON THE COVER THAN U CAN’T USE HER, OR IF HER NAMES NOT IN THE EDITORIAL THAN YOU CAN’T USE HER, OR PERSUADE AND GET THE DESIGNER EXITED TO HAVE THEM THE DOMINAT FACE OF THEIR BRAND. we neeedd better agents

  21. sam says:

    and HILARY RHODA 4 ralph lauren, BRUCEGISELE, ur so samrt she has that look for that campaigne

  22. miyoshi9211 says:

    brucegisele for president… just kidding. but i agree with everything your saying

  23. nek says:

    Love her! the most stunnig girl! first i saw her in V Secret fashion show ! she was out shined !!! I wasn’t recognize her because she had that great smile on her face! she looked always diffrent! good way..

  24. M. says:

    what is with Americans and Michelle Obama? cut it down a little. she is not as all are saying breathtakingly beautiful and stylish.I mean honestly…she is NOT Jackie O.

    as suppose Sessilee , <3
    she is very interesting looking, like her a lot :) she can pull everything!
