The Dark Night

September 8th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is a darkness than underlies the drama of Paolo Roversi‘s latest story for Vogue Italia. Ymre Stiekema, Anna de Rijk, Heidi Mount, Toni Garrn, Rose Cordero, Viktoriya Sosonkina, Jourdan Dunn, Darya Kurovska, Imogen Morris-Clarke, Sigrid Agren and Constance Jablonski star in a series of images that are both fantastical and romantic. The luminous beauty of the finest couture pieces is juxtaposed against a dimly lit garden background and a cluttered pile of chairs but somehow it all comes together perfectly. The pictures are haunting and standout as an especially memorable spin on the couture editorial.

Pagan Poetry

August 20th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is nothing like a pleasant surprise to get the season started right. The September issue of V comes with a staggering special supplement that focuses on the cerebral beauties at Women & Supreme Management management. The lengthy portfolio by  Paul Rowland re-imagines 19 of the industry’s most captivating faces as pagans – complete with flowers, insects, slabs of serrated flesh and of course, blood. The end result is raw, hypnotic and about a thousand times more interesting than most of the covers we’ve seen this September. Seeing Alana Zimmer, Alla Kostromichova, Behati Prinsloo, Christina Kruse, Daiane Conterato, Darya Kurovska, Georgina Stojiljkovic, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Hannelore Knuts, Iris Strubegger, Isabeli Fontana, Meghan Collison, Mina Cvetkovic, Natasa Vojnovic, Ranya Mordanova, Rose Cordero, Suvi Koponen, Valentina Zeliaeva and Yulia Kharlapanova in this new light highlights not only the versatility of the girls but also the sheer reserves of talent that can be found at these two powerhouse agencies.

The Hard Knock Life

April 7th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Just when we were wondering what theme Vogue Italia would tackle this month, Steven Meisel strikes out with a fashion response to the recession. In an age of deep cuts, when even the most notable retailers are feeling the pinch Meisel serves up a seamstress inspired editorial featuring the the DiY aesthetic of the time before luxury bubble. With her impish demeanor and lethal stare Darya Kurovska perfectly captures Meisel’s fascination with insouciant youth. Darya’s charm paired with the imaginative styling of Karl Templer calls to mind the days when dressing was all about the ingenuity of the wearer rather than the name on the label.

The Young & The Restless

March 19th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The hottest fresh faces are front and center for V. Katie Fogarty, Suzie Bird, Evelina Mambetova & Darya Kurovska bring their innate cool to Josh Olins’ appropriately titled ‘Young Guns’ story. Displaying the latest wares from youthful designers like Rad Hourani and Alexander Wang, they look every bit as cutting edge as the clothes they’re displaying – what better way to show off design’s rising forces than to utilize the talents of burgeoning editorial stars.
