The Look of Angelo Pennetta

April 10th, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (9)

Considering how much of fashion’s excitement happens behind the scenes, it is surprising how few editorial images enter into reportage territory. Ask anyone working in the industry: half the magic takes place far away from photo studios, runways and sound stages. Seeing these moments captured is always intriguing, and Angelo Pennetta‘s work provides a bird’s-eye view into the realities behind fashion.

In British Vogue, Pennetta follows Karlie Kloss as she makes her way through Paris fashion week, offering a glamorous yet candid look at the model lifestyle. The pictures are high gloss, styled to a t, and showcase some of the season’s best clothes, but they manage to feel authentic and inviting. Who wouldn’t want to lounge around at the Hotel Crillon with Karlie?

Likewise, Pennetta’s shots of the effervescent Liu Wen‘s travels through China felt like an little peek into Liu’s private side. So often it is the photographer who meticulously crafts the vision a model is supposed to represent; viewing the work of an artist who lets the girls be themselves is a treat. Especially when the journeys he takes you on are so lovely.

    they are cute I’m not so impressed with the photography though. i know some young photographers who shoot this type of point and shoot who have a better vision.

    Whoa!! (So how tall IS Karlie, like 6’1″?) She gets more and more beautiful to me with age. Amazing. 19 and one of the biggest models in the world. I would love to see how the “baby veteran” will continue reinventing herself for the next 5-6 years. Team KK!!!

  7. Alessafan says:

    Karlie’s third picture is just magic! She’s stunning! and becoming such a beautiful woman!

  8. Paul K says:

    Liu Wen is stunning. She’s a better model than Karlie IMO.

  9. A says:
