The Feminine Mystique

February 18th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (39)

There is something about the way Mario Sorrenti creates a picture that just brings out the best in his subjects. In the latest issue of W, Sorrenti takes 18 of the most beautiful models and shoots them looking seductive and sensual: some of the pictures work better than others but he manages to capture the essence of each girl.

Liya Kebede


Guinevere Van Seenus


Mirte Maas

    All look elegant & cool except for Jessica Miller and Guinevere Van Steenus, who look like female bodybuilders – these 2 are getting thick!

  7. Charlotte says:

    The addition of Pixie dang near ruins it, but all the other girls (especially Iselin) save it!!!!

    @ Erikak

    You sound quite silly. I normally dont respond to comments like that, but this is riduculous. Since when is looking like a real woman wrong? Being “thick” (considering both of them are still extremely small compared to the average woman) is a good image to promote. I guess you like bones sticking out. You know, like an ad for anorexia or bullemia.

    Lara’s image is wonderful.
    Liya, Iselin, Eniko, Anna, all amazing..

    I-LOVE-Valerija! She was so funky-chic at Chanel Couture. Giving you that face and pose that pokes you right in the gut. So macabre.

    2010 is shaping up to be quite the blissful continuation of master photography as suspected.

    I’m swooning over that bookmatched Walnut Burl folding divider in Sigrid’s shot. Drool.

  12. KS says:

    Hands down.. Iselin and Lara nailed it. sultry….

  13. lenore says:

    Iselin, Liya and Lara look the best.

  14. Anna says:

    Freya looks way to skinny and Sigrid doesn’t look like herself.

  15. simon says:

  18. Devon says:

    all look gorgeous…Enikos chest looks weirdly photoshopped. Her boobs are not that big

  19. Robert C says:

    Eniko always steals my breath away…
    Lara’s body is the bee’s knees…
    Liya…oh Liya…

  20. JW says:

    Excellent work from the models and photog!

  21. Shoukat Ali Jamali says:

    No words to explain, each model is very beautiful then each other, my uncountable kisses and love for all of them.

  22. Ivona says:

    I like Jessica Miller,Freja and Karmen Pedaru..Reaaaally like them..And Liu Wen is gorgeous..But I miss Natalia Vodianova and Natasha Poly here…

  23. Calvin says:

    Edita looks amazing and Iselin just blows my mind! Seriously. That shot of her is poster worthy. No wonder she’s the center image in my “Fashion! Fashion! Fashion!” print hanging on my wall. And what I love about Lara is that you can always tell it’s her but you always look twice because she shoots so amazingly. Why can’t more models be like her?

  24. Antonio Marcus says:

    oooh la la!

  25. zanita says:

    Freyas chest looks a little corpse like. Love Liu Wen, Jessica, Karmen and Lara.

  26. devore says:

    eniko looks like janet lol

  27. ChalitaYa says:

    Iselin is so sexy in this picture. i used to think that she was too skinny but in this picture is perfect!!!

  28. Amarie says:

    I love Liya, Carmen, Eniko, Lyndsey, and Iselin !

  29. peterModelObsessed says:

    Jessica Miller is doing the bodybuilder pose.

  30. peterModelObsessed says:

    Iselin Steiro is undoubtedly the Queen of Posing. I love her.

    Lara is super aware of her body, how to pose in a certain way. That’s why she’s very successful.

    Guinevere in the other hand, fell flat. Looking short and fat. Her big bouffant didn’t help either.

  31. peterModelObsessed says:

    Liu wenn really captured the theme. Seductive and sensual.

    That Geldoff girl missed the memo. She just look plain dirty. Not seductive nor sensual at all.

  32. ellen says:

    Lara and Anna. woow

  33. photographer says:

    Beautiful photographs. Really like the mood and styling

  34. Edwin Flores says:

    I shot Lindsay years ago , she looks the best here ! She really has grown leaps and bounds ! I love this works but I am not in love with how muscular some of the girls look

  35. says:

    Fabulous photography xox Tangent Magazine

  36. olga says:

    lara and edita are a dream <3

  37. Christopher Y says:

    ODD… why does it feel like Mert & Marcus’ work?!?!

  38. Tglove says:

    I love Liya and Shalom…those women are FIERCE!!

  39. bloop says:
