Twist & Shout

July 16th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (28)

Fashion breeds competition. Mey Bun and Tao Okamoto duke it out for Vogue Russia in a series of energetic shots that have the duo pushing, pulling and dancing across the page. Simon Robins‘ maximalist styling and Terry Tsiolis‘ stark photography are on point but Tao and Mey are the absolute stars of the show.

    I love this!Its been a while since I’ve seen Mey Bun, with a few appearances here and there. I’ve really been intrigued by her since Jay-Z’s “Change Clothes” video. Betty you beat me to it with the Tina Chow reference, But I’ll one up you (in a friendly way) these pictures, especially the first one reminds of this beautiful b/w of Tina Chow and her sister Audele Lutz, look that up, I might of seen that picture in Antonio’s Girls. Anyway this is brilliant and thanks Betty for the timeless fashion commentary (I was gonna say old-school, but Tina can’t be marginalized in specific time and place, she and Grace, Iman, Pat and sometimes Anna are still being referenced today .

    you can’t buy models chemistry like this…haven’t seen anything this good since Sasha and Kate for Longchamp

  11. K says:

    Wow! This is a nice surprise! Sorry Keesean, I refuse to compare this to anything those two overrated blondes do…they are tired, this is quite refreshing.

    Love it )
    Vogue Russia is still much less commercial than American Vogue.

  16. Christopher Y says:

    WOW… this is INSANE!!! I love the energy and intensity that’s exuberated from both girls… FANTASTIC!!!

  17. pony ryder says:

    i adore this models, but this editorial remindes me a lot on the one in dazed so it’s a “no go” for me.

  18. Guadeloupe says:

    THANK GOD, I needed my shot of exotic beauty!! Very refreshing and it definitely woke me up because honey I fell asleep watching all these posts on blonde models. They are beautiful and stunning et all but what about mixing them up with other types of beauty! Not a lot has changed since that infamous ‘All Black Vogue’ issue!!

  19. Erwin hermes says:

    Inspiring, refreshing and daring. I hope to see more of them!

  20. b says:

    nothing special,
    but STILL better than american vogue.

  21. debby says:

    Oh tao girl

  22. Nigel S. says:

    Fantastic! Selling those clothes..don’t you want to bag those articles right this minute? And there is that delicious zip-up blazer in the first photo worn Mey and also by Eniko for Vogue China.

  23. james says:

    so fake! Don’t like it at all!

  24. Becky says:

    wow i luv those things up there

  25. Grizzly says:

    I love them, I know I shouldn’t say it, but I love that they’re Asian. I just think they’re more refreshing to look at.

  26. Ambigous says:

    Their lines are amazing!!!
