Emotional Depth

October 9th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Iris Strubegger is one of the most expressive faces in modeling. Blessed with the ability to convey vulnerability and strength in the same pose her pictures always have an added depth. For i-D Willy Vanderperre utilizes Iris’ emotive qualities to create a downbeat editorial that feels more like a scene from an indie film than a fashion story. The laid back styling provided by Jane How, serves as the perfect compliment to this moody tale.

Keeps Gettin’ Better

October 2nd, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Every month Vogue Italia manages to keep us on our toes with its choice of cover subject and this month the surprise is especially pleasant. After a six year absence Rianne Ten Haken returns to the cover of VI with fiery hair and a sultry attitude. This cover plus the incredible season Miss Ten Haken has been having makes for the official haute comeback of the year.

Add to this the unmistakable presence of one Karlie Kloss, the unstoppable force that just keeps getting better and better with every editorial, cover or campaign. A Vogue Italia cover is the icing on the cake for a newcomer who has managed to continuously awe with her much heralded skills in front of the camera. With hot pink hair and an unexpectedly saucy demeanor, Karlie dominates every frame that she’s in.

Steven Meisel has quite a treat in store for us this month – the party to the limit action spied in this preview is sure to whet your appetite for the full issue. Iris Strubegger, Dorothea Barth Jorgensen and Simon Nessman all make appearances in what is sure to be an exciting affair.

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.

Almost Perfect

July 24th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There are a million things that are right about Iris Strubegger‘s Vogue Nippon cover – her captivating gaze, the lean silhouette created by her pose, that stunning satin dress, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin‘s photography – it all works perfectly. Of course, all these wonderful things would be all the more special if it wasn’t for the giant letter “U” blocking Iris’ face. Do you find the text distracting or does the cover work for you all the same? Even with the little bit of text one has to admit that this is an incredible way to kick off this years round of September covers.

Variations On A Theme

July 23rd, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Someone at Vogue Paris must really love Kristen McMenamy. After paying tribute to the supermodel’s classic Vogue Italia with a tribute cover in March, they enlist Iris Strubegger to once again play the role of Kristen. This time around the story revolves around luxe jewelry and Patrick Demarchelier does the shooting but what really strikes us is how fresh a recycled  Steven Meisel concept looks after all these years.
