Steven Meisel shoots his favorite faces as the embodiment of fall’s signature styles: Caroline Trentini, Daria Strokous, Fei Fei Sun, Jourdan Dunn, Mirte Maas, Coco RochaArizona Muse and Raquel Zimmermann, take on a variety of looks from romantically ethereal separates, to futuristic minimalism. Styled by Grace Coddington and Michael Philouze, with gorgeous hair and makeup by Guido Palau & Pat McGrath, the story is an absolute delight. American Vogue‘s September issue continues to leave us pleasantly surprised!

  4. jules says:

    um. why are almost all these models with Women Agency? thats a bit strange, no?

  5. anlabe says:

    Daria, Mirte, Fei Fei, Arizona, Carol my fave!

  6. Janelle says:

    Jules, I don’t think it is odd tbh with you. These are all girls Meisel has worked with before and quite frequently. I like the casting on this story – really nice mix of models.

  7. Dom says:

    WOW! The last couple issues of American Vogue have been really great, and with ed’s like this, it seems that it just keeps getting better! Especially since VI and VP have been so terrible lately.

  8. The Editor says:

    I don’t know why I haven’t gotten this issue. Where the F#@%! is Karlie and Joan. Really modern looking, but maybe it’s just the backdrop and hair.

  9. anlabe says:

    @ Dom, I so agree with you!
    Vogue US is know my favorite edition of all Vogues.
    The eds and model castings are great!
    And I also agree with your statements about VP and VI, incoherent issues with a lot of boring models.

    Vogue US and UK FTW. (Germany, China, Japan close behind)

  10. Things I Like says:

    I like the boldness of the editorial and the cast of models are amazing it’s nice to see Caroline back at work again she always caught my eye when looking at it the editorial. Great work by Steven and models

  14. Podesta says:

    Meisel has been working a lot with Raquel and Caroline, and I love this…

  15. Not on the guest list says:

    I know this comment mught be banned but I have to say it. Thanks of God that Arizona is one shot!!! I’m sorry, I don’t like her and I don’t know why everybody loves her (except from Riccardo Tisci!!!) Besides that, this editorial is one huge reason to put models back on the cover of Vogue US. I wanna see fashion not PR to the latest celebrity that got out a movie!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Hazel L says:

    Very excited to c coco!!!!

  17. FND says:

    It just so happen that Meisel’s favorite girls happen to be from Women. So if anything Women have been signing all the right girls!!

  18. D. says:

    Coco always takes it to the next level… Why is Raquel only in one shot..?

  19. necia says:

    grace is the best stylist around. templer, alt, roitfield need to take note

  20. sami says:

  21. Gerard says:

    Beautiful. It looks like a campaign. Is that Garrett Neff there?

    Yes that’s Garrett Neff.
    Also Henry Barnacle in the first and last shots.

  24. anastasia beverhausen says:

    Mirte is quite the standout here in my opinion. Good for her! Flawless styling btw.

  25. anlabe says:

    Unfortunate position of Arizona in the second picture, they should’ve known better.
