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.

For the Givenchy Fall Winter 2015 campaign Riccardo Tisci kept it in the “just-about” family and when Donatella Versace’s presence was revealed in a preview with Tisci himself and Donatella, it nearly turned the internet upside down. It’s one thing for a designer to be in their own campaign, but including a rival fashion house… In response Tisci has said he considers the Italian empress family and both feel there should be more support within the industry. The brood also features Frankie Rayder, the face of the brand in 1999, amongst the company of Ricardo favorites like Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bochert and Stella Lucia clad in Givenchy. The styling by Carine Roitfeld  is complete with all of Tisci’s subverting calling cards: facial jewelry and septum rings, gothic ornament and severe silhouettes. The familial casting was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott set in the mileu of what could be imagined as their opulent estate. An accompanying campaign video has the stony-faced clan entertaining themselves in the sizable set.
