Match Point

August 12th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (27)

Sometimes a good editorial is all about the right combination. Eniko Mihalik‘s work with Mario Sorrenti consistently strikes the right chord between sensual and fashionable. Perhaps it’s Eniko’s natural sultriness or simply Sorrenti’s eye for the female form but every time the two pair up the results are dynamic. Whether it’s a darkly erotic turn for Vogue Paris or an artistic story for W, something about the pair just works. This month they join forces yet again for Vogue Italia and in a relatively simple story that crackles with heat. The theme revolves around ‘iconic items’ but who can pay attention to the clothes when there is all that Eniko right in front of you?

What are some of your favorite model + photographer pairings?

    eniko throws her head back in every editorial. even in the max mara campaign. it must be her ‘signature.’ shes still absolutely spectacular.

    Thanks Trumancapote…

    I’m a fan of Cato during ModelLive.

    She’s a natural Beauty…I always look at her like a Caucasian version of Adriana Lima.

    isn’t she in the PRADA ads too?

    did she finish her school or did Modelling full time?

    love love love Eniko. like a young Jodie Foster, although there’s a little Daria in these too. nothing beats the aging story she did with I&V for VP though

  15. ivanc says:

    I LOVEE ENIKO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IS SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL……………………….

  16. marvoi says:

    the last one i like

  17. Ken says:

    Lily Cole and Tim Walker

  18. Maggie says:

    – Guinevere Van Seenus + Paolo Roversi = probably my favorite partnership. They create works of art, really haunting and remarkable images.
    – Linda Evangelista + Peter Lindbergh = although he makes me sick with his black and white pictures that look all the same, no one captures Linda’s mystique like he does.
    – Daria + I&V = Pure chemistry. They belong together
    – Raquel + Karl Lagerfeld = he’s not that much of a photographer but he always gets something good from Raquel.
    – Kate Moss + Mert and Marcus/Mario Sorrenti/Mario Testino/Craig McDean (or maybe the rest of the world. The woman really knows how to take a good pic!)
    – Catherine McNeil + Testino = I could definitely do without Testino, but Catherine makes him bearable.
    – Caroline Trentini + Patrick Demarchelier = I don’t know how to explain it, but I think no one captures Trentini jumping so well like Demarchelier. And they’re nearly family, no? 😉

    And I love, love, love, love Eniko. She’s my favorite young model right now. She is a doll.

    Love the first photo, awesome body and gorgeous skin.

    Gisele + Mario Testino= Picture perfect. He captures the real Brazilian. Testion’s works bring out models’ quality.

  20. Elvire says:

    1st pic= Sacrifice of Jesus Christ + feminine sensuality…GREAT shoot!

  21. Rene Schaller says:

    These are great picture’s! Thanks for showing.

    I am very happy that the latest batch of Girls like Eniko, Tonni Garn, Sigrid, Abbey Lee, Karli Kloss, Edita V. and especially the fiery Anna J are very impressive editorial/ad Girls…..

    Nowadays, “posing” is as mandatory as good catwalk.

  24. brucegisele says:

    the first foto and last foto saved ass from looking like Daria……they were campaign worthy… who ever she wearing, i would turn those fotos into an ad for Versace or Gucci or something…..go gurl!

    karl lagerfeld & claudia schiffer, ellen von unwerth & coco rocha
