Vogue Italia Banks on Gigi

November 13th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Gigi Hadid shows there’s power in numbers for her cover story in Vogue Italia‘s latest issue. High off of a Victoria’s Secret catwalk debut, the Californian dream is maximally transformed into a candy-colored hair siren with spunk to spare in this editorial shot by Steven Meisel. Stylist Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele works her audacious magic in zany, flashy pieces from Miu Miu, Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli, and Versace. Beauty looks created by masters Guido Palau and Pat McGrath round off visuals that are playfully dynamic.

Vogue Russia Picks its New Crop

August 27th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For Vogue Russia‘s September issue, Jason Kibbler photographs the stand-out fresh faces of Russia styled by Olga Dunina. The crop of up and comers have all been catching the eye of industry principals of seasons late. Russia being a wellspring of top models is nothing new, of course, but no one can argue against their knack for oft turning out fashion’s créme de la créme in good supply. These runway tested breakouts are proving they’re nothing less than that, like willowy Gucci campaign girl Lia Pavlova, the very wanted redhead Varya Shutova, or the Jil Sander muse Sofia Tesmenitskaya. See who else they cast as their it-girls:

Photographer Jason Kibbler /models Anabel Krasnotsvetova, Inga Dezhina , Irina Shnitman , Katya Ledneva , Lia Pavlova, Liza Ostanina , Sofia Tesmenitskaya , Varya Shutova , Yulia Ermakova, Zlata Semenko /  Editor  Olga Dunina / Hair Stylist Kevin Ryan / Makeup Artist Christine Corbel / Makeup Artist Justine Purdue / Manicurist Casey Herman /Manicurist Laura Forget

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.

Miuccia’s World

June 19th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

One can imagine Miuccia Prada’s world “for the slightly disenfranchised” is filled with characters of an uncanny quality. In her designs there’s that murmur of jolie laide that fine-tunes weirdness and statement to resemble the regular (maybe it’s Miuccia’s mime training at work). Her fidelity to art-house actors has filled Prada and, the younger, more capricious, Miu Miu‘s campaigns regularly with a cinephile’s dream ensemble. The Italian empress has pulled from the silver screen A-list talent like James McAvoy, Dane Dehaan, Marine Vacth, and Elle Fanning for previous seasons and A/W 15 is true to form: Craig McDean lensed Scoot McNairy, Michael Shannon, and Tye Sheridan all uniformed in Prada menswear. The Miu Miu campaign photographed by Steven Meisel, entitled “Subjective Reality”, puts Maddison Brown, Hailey Gates, Mia Goth, Stacy Martin on the streets of New York City done up in Miu Miu wares. The images feature brand favorites and leads in Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac”  Mia and Stacy. See both campaigns below.

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.
