Pure Class

September 6th, 2011 Posted by Janelle comments (31)

Sometimes an editorial doesn’t need bells and whistles to make an impact. Case in point: Vincent Peters‘ simply beautiful story for Vogue Italia featuring Isabeli Fontana. There is nothing edgy about the story, but the combination of Peters’ cinematic lighting, Valentina Serra‘s exquisite selection of clothing and Isabeli’s beauty makes for memorable images. The vintage vibe of the entire series is an interesting contrast to some of the other stories in the issue - most notably, Meisel’s avant-garde cover shoot with Stella Tennant.

    In Modelling there’s the Blondes, The Exotics and there’s Isabeli Fontana. A league of her own. She been working forever and remains in the moment.

    Simply The BEST.

    This is Italian cinema at its best, think 70′s period drama movies, it recalls Visconti foremost, as well as De Sica, Bertolucci and Pasolini. Think Claudia Cardinale, Sophia Loren, Silvia Mangano or Dominique Sanda. Exquiste tragi-comic high bourgeois decadence. Love it!

    Isabeli looks amazing in this editorials, very classic and pretty! She is so iconic now

  9. The Editor says:

    Yes, this spread is reminiscent of the Karan ads, all about elegance & poise, staged to show only mild sex appeal.

  14. Luca says:

    OMG !! This editorial is iconic!!
    Why put all these newbies & no Vogue Italia’s Cover to Isabeli Fontana? Look at this editorial, is unbelievable, Isabeli never disappoints & this is her year!! Hopefully she will get a cover in the future, if Meisel will like her again -.-’

    GOD these images are gorgeous…

  16. TeeVanity says:

    Beyond!

  17. GP says:

    She is like a movie star, so beautiful that take my breath away.

  18. Manuel says:

    She’s stunning. I’m hoping she does VS this year.

  19. carola says:

    Always so gorgeous; she should be an actress after modeling winds down, with that face she wouldn’t even have to know how to act. Also how rich is she? I’m seeing her in like 5 campaigns every season, that’s huge for a girl that has been around for some long. If I were a model and had my pick I’d sign with Women.

  20. lu says:

    this is AMAZING.

  21. Ricardo says:

    It’s impossible to get wrong with Isabeli Fontana. She can make everything, a class editoral or a sexy campaign. And there is no doubt that she is one of the most beautiful woman in the world.

  22. Anna says:

    I hope to see Isabeli working together with David Gandy in one editorial. They are both gorgeous with fantastic blue eyes, and a kind of italian appearance. They gonna make a great couple

  23. PeterModelObsessed says:

    @ Anna

    David Gandy and Isabeli Fontana are the Dolce Gabbana Man And Woman in Flesh and blood! A dream Team!

  24. PeterModelObsessed says:

    Isabeli Fontana will be one of the Judges in the 2011 Miss Universe Beauty Pageant.

    Are you excited like me????

  25. imfunky69 says:

    Love here, Isabeli can do VS and High Fashion very very well!

  26. ace says:

    this is so fantastic!! an effortless projection of beauty.. perfect lense..perfect supermodel for a perfect editorial…Isabeli Fontana is back for vengeance..

  27. carola says:

    @ Peter oh i am DEFINITELY gonna watch Miss U if she’s gonna be a judge (I’d watch it anyway, so much beauty from everywhere)

  28. PeterModelObsessed says:

    I’m seeing and feeling Angelina Jolie, Helena Christensen and Sophia Loren vibes. Powerful, Mysterious, Dark. Alluring……

    If looks could kill, do we stand a chance???

  29. Gav says:

    Love this editorial.

    Yes, this spread is reminiscent of the Karan ads, all about elegance & poise, staged to show only mild sex appeal.

  31. Christopher Yong says:

    she’s one of the BEST models out there for lifestyle editorials/ads… she never fails to deliver with her natural luring charisma – so unpretentiously sensual and elegant – it doesn’t matter if she’s selling Gap’s chino pants or Louis Vuitton’s bikini, she makes everything work… not only that, she’s one of the few models that has the relatable-factor that allows other women to aspire to be like her…
