And God Created Liya

April 22nd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

It’s been a long time coming but finally Liya Kebede returns for the May 2015 cover of Vogue Paris. Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, this issue marks the 13 year anniversary since the ageless goddess was last on the cover and the reunion is a sight for sore eyes.

It’s all about being bold this issue and Liya is shown on the cover modeling a print heavy jumpsuit from Dior‘s couture collection with a crown of curls set against a vivid red background. Inside the issue, Vogue Paris does a retrospective of its favorite shoots with the Ethiopian icon and features an in depth story titled Et, Dieu Crea Liya.

Throughout the years, Liya has also been a mainstay in publications like Vogue Italia, American Vogue, V Magazine & i-D and has worked with a bevy of photographers like Steven Meisel, Craig McDean, Annie Leibovitz, and Mert & Marcus. She has been the face of Estee Lauder and has been featured in campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, & Balenciaga. With her roles in movies like Desert Flower, The Good Shepherd, & Day of the Falcon she has been able to shown her wide range of creative passions.

Through her Liya Kebede Foundation she has used her extensive platform as an international supermodel to reduce maternal, newborn and child mortality in Ethiopia and around the world. She also uses fashion for the betterment of the World with her LemLem line which helps preserve the art of traditional weaving in Ethiopia and to offer work opportunities to local artisans.

A Simple Touch

August 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Eva Herzigova never fails to bring a special quality to all her images and in Yelena Yemchuk‘s dreamy story for Vogue Italia, the supermodel is at her mesmerizing best. Posing in dainty pieces from Dior accented with Charlotte Olympia clutches and retro shades Eva is the ultimate vintage blonde. Cathy Kasterine‘s artful styling brings a 60s sensibility Yemchuk’s imagery, but the industrial backdrop of powerlines provides unexpected contrast to the ladylike fashions.

Serene Escape

June 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

It may be winter down under, but Will Davidson creates a tropical fantasy for the new issue of Vogue Australia. Amanda Wellsh plays the part of elegant castaway in a selection of looks chosen by Christine Centenera. Heading off he beaten path in Dior and Chloe might not be practical in real life, but the cinematic scope of Davidson’s imagery makes the concept seem ideal. Even when grasping a walking stick, or wading through the ocean waves on the back of a horse Amanda never loses her glamorous edge.
