New & Improved

February 16th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (42)

Great casting makes the story, Vogue is always filled with familiar faces, but the ones that stand out most are the first timers. This month several girls make their debut: Steven Meisel‘s ladylike editorial boasts American Vogue first timers, Freja Beha Erichsen, Mirte Maas and Rianne Ten Haken (who returns to the pages of Vogue six years after her last appearance in 2004) alongside Wintour favorites like Karlie Kloss, Liya Kebede and Lara Stone. The photography is excellent and Grace Coddington provides her quintessential stylist’s touch but the girls are what make this story worthwhile.

  15. AriL says:

    Freja & Liya together! Too good to be true!!! On the other hand, Mirte looks so bad!

  16. peterModelObsessed says:

    Karlie Kloss is giving me a Blake Lively vibe, Don’t you think?

    Lara becoming a full figured model to me.

  17. Tad says:

    Lara is so voluptuous and gorgeous, but in here, she looks like an alien.

  18. trumancapote says:

    i adore Rianne Ten Haken on the 2 amazing story for italain vogue but here she looks abosutley volgar…as much as anyone else look boring… how many years we ll still be obliged to see the same images taken over n over with differt clothes? doesnt even matter if Meisel or Demarchelier or Sims s the photographer whne Wintour just wants the same boring stuff

  19. peterModelObsessed says:

    Please Don’t Shoot me!

    but upon closer look. And forget it’s Lara Stone.

    Ain’t Lara look like a regular teen chubby girl without eyebrows you saw hanging out in the mall?


    The rest of the girls are definitely Modelos!

  20. Johnny says:

    RTH rocks !!! she owns that image, giving full affects.

  21. Ted says:

    I am so happy that US Vogue is pumping some new blood through their veins! A very fresh start to spring!

  22. Nigel S. says:

    Liya.. My Love! I love her so much. Freja looks great.

    Here, Rianne Ten Haken does it for me. She’s just so amazing. And how wonderful to see her back on the NY runway.

  23. louc says:

    Love this. Would love to see Liya and Freja get paried up next time for another edit with Meisel.

  24. AJP says:

    With a 24 inch waist, Lara is far from “a regular teen chubby girl without eyebrows you saw hanging out in the mall”…..

    I cannot believe how twisted you all must be to think she is anywhere near full figured. She has big boobs and she kind of has some curves.. Big fucking deal.

  25. larszz says:

    Three Dutchies, yay.

  26. kiki says:

    Completely agree, AJP. You hit the nail on the head with that one. Lara is not a bone and I doubt she ever will be but she works it and looks great.

  27. ErikaK says:

    Why doesn’t the world see more of Rianne? Stunning.

  28. says:


  29. blom says:

    Rianne is Goddess

  30. Ryo says:

    Lara 🙂

  31. Marilyn says:

    WOW my dutch girls u make me proud

  32. sephoria says:

    Who is the first model? she’s stunning, liya kebede looks flawless and the others look so boring

    How can anyone call Lara chubby!!! She is slim! At least she aint some stick, the second picture them girls need a burger, Lara is fine the way she is

  33. PixMagazine says:

    The editorial is incredible!!!!

  34. ff says:

    Mirte is just not for American Vogue, Rianne looks wonderful, Freja looks different but really beautiful, and I must admit that Lara looks impeccable.

  35. Fashion photographer says:

    Wow. They all look beautiful. Rianne and Liya are my favorite.

  36. photographer says:

    wow. They all look beautiful! Rianne and Liya are favorite

  37. Jazzy J says:

    Woowww I’m very proud to be dutch right now…
    I wish I was that stunning too

  38. MDC_415492 says:

    rianne magnifique

  39. Joey says:

    This ed is very stunning. I luv all the pictures with Rianne in it.

    I actually flipped through the issue this is in, and I found that Patricia Van Der Vliet and Abbey Lee Kershaw have made their American Vogue debut as well, but Karlie Kloss is in there as well, which brings down the value a little.

    I don’t hate Karlie, but “Kloss fever” as I call it, is getting a bit boring.

  40. Tglove says:

    Liya is a BREATHE of fresh air….I love her.

  41. says:

    Beautiful styling as always from Grace.
    Tangent Mag expects nothing less…
