Mahogany Redux

September 15th, 2008 Posted by Janelle comments (20)

The unstoppable Tyra Banks and the inimitable Sessilee Lopez join forces in the new issue of V. Recreating the 1970s Diana Ross classic Mahogany the duo play model muses. Sebastian Faena continues to utilize disco era source material to pair the best of the supermodel generation with the best of the new breed of rising model powerhouses. Recall his similarly epic Eyes of Laura Mars editorial featuring Linda Evangelista and Raquel Zimmermann.

    Holy Moly, this is nothing short of gorgeous! Major props to V. It’s nice to see Tyra get a chance to really work it again. They both look so stunning in the 2nd photograph.

    I love the fact that Tyra Banks is (semi)retired, but is probably booking more gig’s in high fashion magazines (Vogue Italia, July; Harper’s Bazaar, Sept; and this V cover and edit) than she was five years ago before she retired and was still the Victoria Secret Queen. :) Does anybody (Betty or Janelle) know if she is still with d’management in Milan, or another agency in NY?

    Sessilee Lopez looks fierce! Love clothes on her.

    Tyra…Hmm…I don’t feel her in the picture and the magazine cover, too. She’s ok anyway.

    Sesilee…wow, you really know how to model without look too posey or bland.
