Deep Impact

April 17th, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (38)

How’s this for big time beauty inspiration – Vogue Paris features supermodel and brand new L’Oreal face Natasha Poly in a stunning cosmetics story shot by Mario Sorrenti Makeup maestro Karim Rahman creates a series of impressive looks that electrify. Going for vibrant color akin to the neon illuminations created by artists like Dan Flavin & James Turrell, Rahman piles on the brights going from sexy glossy red lips and purple eyes, an incredible ombre pastel look and finally a literal explosion of pigment across the face. Each look accentuated by Géraldine Saglio‘s pitch perfect styling that merges seamlessly with the makeup.

    yes, she is a “supermodel” of the new generation in a sense, and definitely an icon so why dont you back up your words with some respect for her career and move her to the icons? what more does she have to do?

  2. lulu lovefiend says:

    She looks like Veruschka in the second portrait. I must admit I’ve never been a raging fan, but she’s a good model and she deserves the surge of jobs she’s getting now. But Alt should stop recycling the same basic models: they’re good but they’re not that good. She’s making me even tire with Malgosia! /end rant

    Re: why don’t I move her to icons list – probably because I have nothing to do with who is placed on the icons list. This may come as a shock but different people control different things on the site and to imply that Natasha is being disrespected by not being on the icons list is a stretch. I doubt Natasha is sitting at home woeful over her ranking on any list because she’s too busy racking up campaigns / contracts / editorials and generally shutting shit down.

  5. Chelsea says:

    This editorial is ICONIC!

    She needs to be moved to the Icons list. It’s disrespectful to have her ranked with Joan (who I think models.com really jumped the gun on). Being the same rank implies that they have an equal amount of success, and Natasha has had FAR more than Joan. When Joan gets 7 Vogue Paris covers, then you can compare them. But right now, Joan is very overrated and Natasha is very underrated.

  6. Luca says:

    this is an amazing editorial. So far my favourite of 2012.

    Anyway i agree with john. It’s not against you (people who works in this amazing site) but i find too a bit insulting not having Natasha in the icon list after so many years. She doesn’t need to attend Lara Stone for going to the icons. Lara is #1st and is a privilege, being #2nd with a L’Oreal contract, the queen of S/S 2012 ad campaigns with a Prada campaign or H&M, a Gucci’s icon, a Vogue Spain issue guest/edited and with just Natasha’s editorial, plus Muse or Vogue Russia dedicated to her. I mean she’s totally ready for icon list and i don’t understand what you’re waiting for, really. I doubt you’ll put her as #1st because she’s from another generation, from 2003 and she’s very selective with what she does. Anyway i repeat, nothing against no one, it’s just time to move her ;-)

    Flawless reply Janelle! This story is breathtaking, too!

  8. aj says:

    i really dont what is she doing in the #2 spot? can u guys just move her to the icons list? i mean wtf? girl been in the top 50 for 8 yrs

  9. aj says:

    if any BODY want to discuss this list we are here! http://www.rtvgames.com/showthread.php?t=23762&page=148

  10. Mike says:

    Well stated Luca, I have been following her work since she has started. Her Contract with L’oreal just sealed the deal. I’d love to see her in Gucci campaigns again

  11. Janelle says:

    Also regarding icons – maybe it is just me but as much as I love Natasha and think her career is already the stuff of legend, shouldn’t she have a chance to stay on Top 50 and :fingers crossed: one day become number one?

    IDK maybe I am an optimist, but I could easily see her being #1, eventually that top slot has to change.

  12. Luca says:

    i think we have to wait a lot until they’ll make her an icon -.-’
    and yes having her on the same level as Joan is INSULTING, like it or not, nothing against anyone. But i mean, Natasha is in the industry from a DECADE while Joan is well knowm from 2010. 7 Vogue Paris covers, REMEMBER

  13. aj says:

    janelle u think she has better chances than Arizona,Joan or Karlie?

  14. stradivarius says:

    Challengable love and hate relationship with Natasha Poly.
    But I give her a credit. Girl worked very,very,very hard to be who she is today!!! I totally agree with John, she is a supermodel of our time. Now that she have L’oreal contract, i feel she deserve the n.1 spot. Lara is cool. But Natasha purly deserve it!!!

  15. stradivarius says:

    ps, havent bought french vogue since Carine’s last issue. I want Carine back too. I miss that time buying and escaping the reality for couple hours…

  16. aj says:

    if any one want to talk about the list on MDC here is a thread to do it

  17. Lausanne says:

    Natasha should be moved to the icons or be number 1, its not fair for her to be on the same rank as Joan

  18. Luca says:

    if you want to put her as #1st then come’on make her as 1st. If you don’t want that then put her in the icons list. What are you waiting for? this is the point

  19. Janelle says:

    ^ I have no control over Natasha’s position on the Top 50 ranking.

    I have no control over anyone’s position on the Top 50 ranking. Some of my favorite models aren’t even ranked, so no matter how I feel personally about a model the changes aren’t mine to make.

    Just want to clarify that, I don’t want to cause any confusion here.

    Have to say, I like how vocal Natasha’s fans are.

  20. MODELLOBELLO says:

    NATASHA IS SOOO AMAZING AND SUCH A GREAT MODEL! SHE HAS DONE ALMOST EVERYTHING AND HAS BEEN HERE FOR YES A DECADE! I ADMIRE HER PROFESSIONALISM AND OF COARSE THAT WALK!! HOWEVER, WE SHOULDNT BASE WHO SHOULD BE AN ICON JUST BECAUSE OF HOW LONG AND HOW MUCH THEY’VE DONE. ! MUCH AS NATASHA DESERVES THE ICON SPOT IN MODELS.COM, BUT SHE STILL IS NOT A TRUE ICON IN THE REAL WORLD!! SHE HASN’T REALLY BROUGHT ANYTHING TO THE TABLE THAT WILL MAKE PEOPLE DISTINGUSH HER, SAME WITH RAQUEL, THEY ARE IN THE SAME LEGUE AS CINDY CRAWFORD FOR EXAMPLE..ICONS SHOULD BE DISTINGUSHABLE RATHER THAN SAFE .. LARA STONE,AGYNESS DEYN,GEMMA FOR EXAMPLE SHOWS ICON STATUS BECAUSE THEY CREATED A TREND AND CAN BE REGARDED TO FOREVER!!!! NATASHA IS JUST ANOTHER HARD WORKING MODEL THAT HAD HER MOMENT , BUT AGAIN..SHE CAN STILL HAVE THAT MOMENT IN THE #1 SPOT! BUT ICON… NOT YET AT LEAST ..

  21. aj says:

    lmfao! AGYNESS DEYN an icon b4 natasha c’mon we are been serious ova’here!

  22. MODELLOBELLO says:

    TYPO: NOT* IN THE SANE LEGUE AS CINDY

  23. Luca says:

    @JANELLE you can’t put her in the icons but then you know many people there so you can told to them to put her there come’on ;-)

  24. Luca says:

    @MODELLOBELLO there’re 20 positions. Gisele is #1st and Natasha can be #16. i don’t see the problem.

  25. Abbey says:

    Agree with Luca. But regardless of whether she is considered an Icon in modelling, she is an icon in terms of not just hard work but being such a lovely person, so kind, humble, caring and compassionate and wins icon status for being a wonderful person as well as a wonderful model:)

  26. Mike says:

    Can’t forget that unforgettable moment where she loses her heel at the 05′ VS fashion show. Pure supermodel and diva!

  27. MODELLOBELLO says:

    RANKING ARE INTRIGUING BUT HONESTLY THE ICONS SHOULD NOT EVEN BE RANKED. AN ANONYMOUSLY ORDERED ICONS LIST WHERE WE CAN SEE SUPERMODELS FROM PAST TO PRESENT!! FROM WILHELMINA , TO TWIGGY, TO GISELE IS BETTER JUST SAYIING! CAUSE HOW IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE THAT DARIA IS RANKED HIGHER THAN NAOMI WHO IS ALL WE KNOW A SUPER ICONIC MODEL NO DOUBT..

  28. KM says:

    Comparing Natasha Poly to Cindy Crawford is absurd. Cindy Crawford is a household name. Outside of fashion circles, no one even knows Natasha Poly. If Natasha Poly were to, perhaps, accumulate even half the number of magazine covers that Cindy has racked up over the years, she might have a fighting chance.

  29. trumancapote says:

    u make a mess with a super model n u end up on vogue paris .. do the the same with not having a super model n we ll see where it goes lol

  30. Luca says:

    but who compare Cindy to Natasha? -.-’
    in the ranking there’re 20 places. Gisele is #1st, Kate is 2nd and Natasha can be #16

  31. Nik says:

    Key word: WORKING
    Quite easy to rank WORKING ICONS of the moment. I wish people didn’t just jump to say, Where is Tatijana P. or Why isn’t Cindy ranked. WORKING ICONS- an icon and her recent/current work.

  32. macaroon says:

    in defense of janelle and everyone at models.com, not a lot of non-fashion fans understand natasha’s appeal. women who like that fashion look might like her but she has a very different appeal from someone like lara stone agyness deyn. she has a niche appeal. very fashion and many people could even go further and say that she’s not pretty (despite landing the L’Oreal contract–she keeps herself photogenic).

    lara stone has such a relatable personality, body that can come across as very commercial, a face that can be pretty/beautiful/cute/androgynous/you name it and she can pull of spreads in GQ etc and become a household name. non-fashion people know agyness deyn…she’s a media blitz and associates herself with very famous non-fashion types..and she makes such a huge impact whether people like her or not. i find natasha more of a “quiet” model compared to the icons.

    natasha’s complete opposite is kate upton…

  33. Luca says:

    macaroon: Mariacarla who is outside fashion industry? NO ONE! SHE DOESN’T EVEN ATTENDS THE MET GALA (JUST LAST YEAR WITH RICCARDO) if she’s there than Natasha can be there. Malgosia is famous? come’on

  34. Janelle says:

    Lily we are all in the same office (though there are Models.com contributors on other continents as well) and I do talk to those in charge of rankings every day, but it would be disingenuous of me to claim any sway over the Top 50. I can of course talk to them, but it is not like I can go and switch things around.

    Like I said I want to be very clear and avoid confusion.

  35. lynn says:

    @janelle: can you say they have to update Mirtes campaignlist? her tom ford cosmetics campaign is out for a month or so!

    and I agree, Natasha and Lara deserves to move, they are well known, got every season big campaigns anf are miles ahead from joan, karlie and arizona.
    It’s insulting to put natasha and joan at the same place. I love Joan, she is doing great and deserves a second spot, but only if lara and natasha are moved out.

    totally agree!!! at least she could be #1 !!!
