Vogue Italia Banks on Gigi

November 13th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Gigi Hadid shows there’s power in numbers for her cover story in Vogue Italia‘s latest issue. High off of a Victoria’s Secret catwalk debut, the Californian dream is maximally transformed into a candy-colored hair siren with spunk to spare in this editorial shot by Steven Meisel. Stylist Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele works her audacious magic in zany, flashy pieces from Miu Miu, Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli, and Versace. Beauty looks created by masters Guido Palau and Pat McGrath round off visuals that are playfully dynamic.

Prada’s Cool Kitsch Posse

November 6th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For their latest campaign, Prada enlists a sought-after bunch to pose their fabulously kitsch resort collection for the lens of Steven Meisel. The prettified posse features the likes of Meghan Collison and Julia Nobis, already in a league of their own, to on the rise, newcomer Ina Maribo Jensen. Styled by Olivier Rizzo, the boldly patterned pieces pretty much show-off themselves against the metallic background, but the wanted faces of fashion make it more.  Beauty team  Guido Palau and Pat McGrath add some extra impact with generous curls and a dark emphasized eye. An accompanying video by Gordon von Steiner brings the collection to life with additional attitude.

Age of Innocence

July 16th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

The latest issue of Vogue Italia celebrates beauty at any age and features a wide range of influential women shot by some of the greatest photographers in the business. The champion of women of all ages, Steven Meisel returns (that was quick!) with the cover story capturing prolific modeling veterans like Donna Jordan, Erin O’Connor, Frankie Rayder, Sasha Pivovarova, Yasmin Warsame, and their new-school, supermodel-progeny counterparts Anna Cleveland, Kaia Gerber, and Sasha P’s adorable toddler, Mia Isis Vishnyakov. The various range of ages shot by Meisel challenges society’s propensity for ageism in a delightfully refreshing way.

Bruce Weber continues the theme with “Leaders of the Pack” that highlights women that have made an impact culturally like Cheryl Tiegs, Marianne Faithfull, Pat Cleveland, and Penelope Tree. Francesco Carrozzini glams up the incomparable model and personality Heidi Klum for beauty portraits that show the veteran in all her alluring glory. Michel Comte rounds it up with his take on the theme with “Women of Today” featuring some of the most prolific actresses, models, choreographers, & artists with appearances from Anjelica Huston, Tatjana Patitz, Karen Alexander, & Claudia Mason.

Miuccia’s World

June 19th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

One can imagine Miuccia Prada’s world “for the slightly disenfranchised” is filled with characters of an uncanny quality. In her designs there’s that murmur of jolie laide that fine-tunes weirdness and statement to resemble the regular (maybe it’s Miuccia’s mime training at work). Her fidelity to art-house actors has filled Prada and, the younger, more capricious, Miu Miu‘s campaigns regularly with a cinephile’s dream ensemble. The Italian empress has pulled from the silver screen A-list talent like James McAvoy, Dane Dehaan, Marine Vacth, and Elle Fanning for previous seasons and A/W 15 is true to form: Craig McDean lensed Scoot McNairy, Michael Shannon, and Tye Sheridan all uniformed in Prada menswear. The Miu Miu campaign photographed by Steven Meisel, entitled “Subjective Reality”, puts Maddison Brown, Hailey Gates, Mia Goth, Stacy Martin on the streets of New York City done up in Miu Miu wares. The images feature brand favorites and leads in Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac”  Mia and Stacy. See both campaigns below.

Change of Guard

June 10th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

As soon as Vanity Fair Italy previewed cover images from Vogue Italia’s “China” issue the internet was abuzz over the non-Meisel round-up of photographers– confirming the whispers that the storied lensman would longer shoot every cover. For models, having a VI cover by Steven Meisel served as a badge of honor and a telltale of imminent visibility.  Steven’s famous partiality for beautiful women and inimitable eye has forecasted and launched numerous careers. So needless to say, his absences after holding the fort since 1988 is big news.

For the the “China” issue, Vogue Italia enlisted Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and Steven Klein to help carry the weight of Meisel’s absence, shooting a cast of established Chinese beauties Fei Fei Sun, Xiao Wen JuJing Wen and newer faces like Yuan Bo Chao, Fernanda Ly and Gia Tang. Each cover bears the visual thumbprint from this league of extraordinary photographers: McDean’s romantic evocations; Sorrenti’s audacious arrangements; Mert and Marcus’ high-styled narratives and Klein’s surreal interpretations. Whether or not it’s enough to fill the void, the praise-worthy selection of models by these modern masters in celebration of China certainly stands on its own.

Asymmetries and Ambiguities

April 29th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Steven Meisel delivered his visual quintessence for Prada’s pre-fall 2015 campaign. Appearing determined with penetrating glares, the duos Maartje Verhoef, Niels Trispel, Willow Hand, Artur Chruszcz, Aya Jones, Johannes Spaas, Natalie Westling, Finnlay Davis, Julia Nobis, & Tim Schuhmacher are a mixture of the freshest new faces and some Prada favorites. If Julia feels familiar it’s because she can add this to her Meisel-résumé, marking her second one for the brand along with her four covers of Vogue Italia. The pre-fall looks work tartan prints and mild pomp against the understated, and the introspective group executes that identity well, preparing us for the colder days to come. In Prada’s own words, the images play with “asymmetries and ambiguities” and elicit “elegance, poise and dare”. The campaign has the definitive feel of Meisel’s classic, cast-centric work and Miuccia’s visionary originality.
