Karmen Chameleon

February 25th, 2013 Posted by Janelle comments (14)

Are we in the midst of a Karmen Pedaru moment? All signs point to yes; as the lithe Estonian burns up the runways of Milan we’re treated to several stunning new covers of Karmen this month. The Pedaru visage is featured on some of the coolest magazines in existence and each image provides its own creative take on her appeal.

As one of the ten top model covers of The Last Magazine, Karmen exudes sensuality in Lachlan Bailey (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists)’s sultry black and white shot. On Flair‘s cover Karmen provides an elegant ease that Katja Rahlwes (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) captures beautifully. That said, the most unexpected cover shot has to be i-D Magazine‘s trippy Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) image that comes complete with a gif party.

    Yes indeed, a Karmen Pedaru moment. I like how you all stated in her Top 50 profile way back in April 2008,…….”all we’re allowed to say, is she’s here to stay.” Amazing, 5 years later, She didn’t really get there as fast as Karlie, but she is sitting at the pinnacle of Top Model status. I think Karmen will be around for a long time honestly. One of the best(resume) of this generation. (I am still waiting on that Vogue Paris cover.)

    I think she has her moments, but she looks tired in the runways and in person. Only time will tell with her longevity as a model.

  3. B says:

    I am not surprised. Karmen is perhaps one of the most beautiful models of all time. And I think she actually had a Vogue Paris cover shot by Hans Fuerrer?

  4. Morgane says:

    I really love her !

  5. Marty says:

    She is my all-time favorite model of the moment I cannot get enough of Karmen! I’ve been sitting back and waiting for this moment

    Are you sure she is from Estonia? I thought she is Romanian…

  7. Anna says:

    She’s Estonian, not Romanian. She was born and raised in Kehra.

  8. tigbit says:

    Karmen is the true number 1 at the moment, closely followed by Saskia & Daria. Magazines, editors, photographers, we all know it.

    The I.D cover is as uniqe as me.

    Beautiful, fresh, sexy and indeed a chameleon. Loving Karen right now.

    This i-D cover is officially one of my favorite covers ever.

    She has indeed been working steadily for quite some time – Ever so quietly and rather pleasantly walking the runways and lending her face to photo.

    She harbours such a captivating mystique – the ever elusive, natural kind.

    I revel a timely, well-earned blossom.
    It is very nice to see her ride this upwave.
