Masterful Performance

November 10th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (34)

Mariacarla Boscono flair for drama is always put to good use in her editorial work – even the simplest of studio editorials comes to life when Mariacarla turns on the charm and breaks out her expressive poses. Solve Sundsbo‘s elegant black and white shots for Vogue China are taken to the next level by Anastasia Barbieri‘s captivating styling (especially the perfect use of that black and white Jil Sander dress) and Mariacarla’s gift for posing – with each picture she captures a different mood with poise and grace.

    LOVE. This is the real deal. Mariacarla is throwing shapes very nicely. These images remind me of Avedons era, with the rich black and white imagery and the styling. And it reminds me why I love Mariacarla sooo much.

    Who designed the gown in the last pic. Looks like Givenchy from the early Zeros.

    Styling is amazing! Brilliant job.

  7. MaoaM says:

    She should be in the Guiness Book.
    She is the only model who is CONSTANTLY on the runways since the 1999 or so.
    I cant remember any model have managed this ever, or am I wrong?

    with constantly i mean not just apparently in one show, but always season for season campaign for campaign.

    it is a rekord for a lady from 1980. wow!!
    ladys from the 1980s are forgotten relicts. and she survived the erin oconnor, carmen kaas and gisell era, the brazilian moment in the 2000s, the belgians, the russians until now.

    maybe because she is something special

    yes, the last picture indeed looks like a quote from Givenchy campaign Mariacarla did in the early 00s.

  11. kmv says:

    Wish there were more models of Italian background. Not enough Mariacarlas and Lind Evangelistas in the world.

  12. GP says:

    Holy Moly! or Holy Maria! Behold a legend.

    Whoa.. she is just one of the absolute BEST models ever. And yes her presence has been amongst the most consistent.
    She is so Maria Callas, one of the most stunning beings to ever breath oxygen, in my opine.

    This is truly fascinating..

    She’s class,she’s elegance,she’s unique and that’s what you can see and feel in these pictures.
    It’s such a shame in all these wonderful years of career the American Fashion World never understood how magic she is.
    But..It’s never too late …We hope
