Poly Power

August 21st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

It’s never hard to find a good reason to write about Natasha Poly–whether it’s recapping a prolific career that sports endless covers and campaigns, or simply musing on the catwalk queen’s iconic power strut. So, if only to remind ourselves of her interminable dominance ever since 2004, it’s worth mentioning her latest haul for Autumn 2015. For the cover of the Vogue Paris‘ September issue, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the super radiates a wild, untamed beauty–courtesy of stylist Emmanuelle Alt and makeup artist Val Garland. Back in her homeland, Natasha fronts the latest issue of Vogue Russia. The look here is austere, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Olga Dunina, looking perfectly chic in lustrous leathers with a defining bold eye by Virginia Young. Besides these two top glossies–no sweat–Miss Poly can be seen in Michael Kors’ Fall 2015 campaign all polished and lensed by Mario Testino. Certainly she’s flexing a little Poly Power! But when is she not? Viva Natasha!

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.
