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.

Fine China

April 23rd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

China has been haunted by literary tropes that have shown but a fraction of the rich, dynastic culture it has. For this summer’s Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition, “China: Through the Looking Glass”, The Costume Institute in collaboration with the Met’s Department of Asian Art, will examine the influence of the Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion. For the latest issue of American Vogue, Steven Meisel and Grace Coddington have taken this examination one step further highlighting elegant, vintage couture creations on the lithe form of Fei Fei Sun. From the blossoming branches of a new season to come to the alluring, sensual mystery of a woman not to be trifled with, this year’s exhibit shows the range of narratives that surrounds the enigmatic country of the Far East.

Pick up the latest issue of Vogue on newsstands this week.

T Magazine China: Pride of Place

March 13th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For the inaugural issue of T Magazine China Fei Fei Sun takes pride of place in the meditative cover story “A Moment of Momentum” photographed by Paola Kudacki (Camilla Lowther Management). The ensuing editorial evokes a balanced landscape with harmonizing elements of design, Fei Fei as its axis. Beautifully contoured and contrasting styling courtesy of Lucia Liu summons a zen symmetry against the minimalistic, sparing scenery. Operating within the spatial compositions Liu artfully utilizes silvery two-tones scarce in color and simple contours to help realize that moment of momentum. For the two cover images Fei Fei wears a more graphically ornamented dress from Louis Vuitton’s S/S 2015 collection. Slick wispy hair by Kevin Ryan and satiny makeup from Sil Bruinsma (Streeters New York) instill essences of romanticism and nature within the coldness of the rock garden of shape and line. An equally meditative fashion film accompanies the story, seen below. In it the Chinese model’s airy, tranquil movements are backed by a droning atmospheric track becoming altogether something that feels quite philosophical and culturally appropriate. T China is an extension of its lifestyle and fashion namesake The New York Times Style Magazine.

Beyond the Pale

February 25th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

A white dress can stand for many things: the purity of a wedding gown, the minimalism of a slip dress, or even the bohemian chic of a floor-grazing maxi dress. White as a color was embraced by fashion this spring with a variety of designers offering their own take on the classic LWD. For the latest Vogue Turkey photographer Cuneyt Akeroglu shoots several of the moment’s biggest faces in all-white looks that compliment each girl’s natural beauty. Alessandra Ambrosio, Jourdan Dunn,, Fei Fei Sun, Jessica Stam and Behati Prinsloo are radiant in Akeroglu’s photographs which display them at their most beautiful with little adornment beyond those beautiful pale dresses.
