Classics Major

March 22nd, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (29)

Hedi Slimane might not be the first name you think of when you hear the words “classic glamour,” but the edgy designer turned photographer, goes traditional for the latest issue of Vogue Paris. Gone are the minimalism and grunge that have come to typify Slimane’s work and in their place is pure 70s chic. Anja Rubik dons power suits and slinky gowns chosen by Emmanuelle Alt and  Slimane shoots her looking sensual in an ornate Parisian apartment. Do you like Hedi’s take on elegance – or do you prefer his typical style?

  10. Janelle says:

    All the nudity here or all the nudity in fashion?

    I would like to take credit for both developments.

    the third pic somehow reminds of eva
    I love the last pic, elegant with a twist of the freaky hand touching her back

  12. trumancapote says:

    that s so sad how instead that giving space to real new talent they prefr to use the same names over n over again that show always less days what s really needed s a stylists n a retoucher cos all the work s really done by those 2 person all the time..this story could have been shoot by any1

    This just proves how versatile Anja is. She got the best body and the sexiest, sleekest high fashion look.

    Like Eva before her, Anja proves you can still be a skinny and a bombshell!

  14. gise says:

    great model. too thin though. of course hedi would pick her…

  15. Mary says:

    P.S Anja´s legs are to die 4..

    The photography is so predictable with its symmetric framing. With that said, I prefer his unsaturated dark frames – it was his style. If I were to see this and had to guess who took it, Hedi would never come to mind. I always associated him with a natural, industrial beauty. This seems too forced.

    To grant Alt reference for her styling in this editorial provides so much false hope for every blind person out there – anyone could put what she put together, at least in this editorial.

  18. GP says:

    Have seen her better than this but still beautiful. She is a bit skinny.

  19. Nicolas says:

    Because nudity is such a new fad in the industry. C’mon guys.

  20. SiLViO says:

    she’s stunningly thin, therefore I LOVE her! and hedi of course haa!
    however, his classic style is much better. in my opinion it was his style what set him apart :s

  21. ff says:

    I just love this editorial, so chic anja looks incredible, the second pic is just mind blowing, amazing…

  22. Allison says:

    Not sure if it was intentional or not, but the last image you have in the spread is inaccurate. Anja’s spine and shoulder muscles are pretty visible a la Fashiongonerogue’s post a few days ago or so:

    It really is a lovely editorial though, and I’m not a huge fan of Anja, but she looks pretty stunning.

  23. via Karlo says:

    Pretty Anja emitting sexual energy in an exotic location, very little can go wrong with such a combination. Hedi and/or the editor chose a soothing balance between saturated & unsaturated images, very relaxing for the eye. well done.

    Oh my god, she has the most divine body I have ever seen. That is how a woman should look without her top. Hot hot hot. Very elegant. (And I don’t even like small breasts.)
