Who is Steven Meisel?

December 5th, 2008 |Posted by Betty

If you’re into iconic imagery, fashion, photography and models, you’re most likely obsessed, as we are, about Steven Meisel. Imagine our surprise and delight to discover that the Berlin based art and culture magazine, 032c, scored an exclusive interview with the notoriously press shy lensman. NY TimesThe Moment talks to their editors about the historic piece.. The best parts? The 14 page pullout with 2 decades of his Vogue Italia covers… and hearing that Meisel is “very much a plain New Yorker at heart”, just like us. For more behind the scene tidbits about covers from James at Women. Running to the magazine store now.

Kate and Viv

Greg Kessler captures Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood and Vivienne’s head designer in London at Viv’s show. Greg shoots backstage for Style.com and NY Times and is one of the hardest working guys we know. We just did one fashion week (NY) and are completely wiped out. Not sure how he does all 4 of them, season after season! Check out his blog, Go Backstage. And just so you know Jourdan Dunn opened and closed what sounded like a pretty exciting show.

Other news from London: Naomi walks 3 times for her charity event for pregnant women and infants. Other fabulous models walking for her? Tyson Beckford and yes, Vivienne Westwood. In fashion, we always come full circle.
