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:

Poly Power

August 21st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

It’s never hard to find a good reason to write about Natasha Poly–whether it’s recapping a prolific career that sports endless covers and campaigns, or simply musing on the catwalk queen’s iconic power strut. So, if only to remind ourselves of her interminable dominance ever since 2004, it’s worth mentioning her latest haul for Autumn 2015. For the cover of the Vogue Paris‘ September issue, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the super radiates a wild, untamed beauty–courtesy of stylist Emmanuelle Alt and makeup artist Val Garland. Back in her homeland, Natasha fronts the latest issue of Vogue Russia. The look here is austere, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Olga Dunina, looking perfectly chic in lustrous leathers with a defining bold eye by Virginia Young. Besides these two top glossies–no sweat–Miss Poly can be seen in Michael Kors’ Fall 2015 campaign all polished and lensed by Mario Testino. Certainly she’s flexing a little Poly Power! But when is she not? Viva Natasha!

Russia’s Operetta

March 16th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Caped gowns, face paint and elaborate embellishing suggests operatic inspirations were behind Vogue Russia’s April cover story. Txema Yeste and the team fuse baroque whimsy with a modernly costumed Natasha Poly. It’s Yeste’s first Vogue Russia cover, but this one makes eleven for Russian icon Poly. The vibrant fashion editorial paints in eye-catching strokes using red as a warring component against the playfully theatric adornments by Olga Dunina. Makeup artist Tyron Machhausen (BRIDGE Artists) redirects attention from an understated glowing skin to a painted white-and-rose face, common in the realm of opera. A single black and white image stands out as a classic note in contrast to the rest of the visuals like the indulgently styled and royally pearl-laden portrait.

Fashion’s coolest model transforms into a showgirl for Yeste’s glittery, ultra-saturated images and turns up the heat with sensual poses that display that finely toned physique. With the bold colors and Yeste’s surrealist touch the story takes on a fantastical quality that gives the photos an added power.

In case you had any doubts about the Karlie Kloss domination of the world take a look at what America’s sweetheart has been up to of late. In addition to being named as the new face of L’Oreal, Karlie has found the time to snap up a fresh cover of Vogue Italia alongside fellow stars Sasha Pivovarova and Lexi Boling. As though that weren’t enough Karlie also graces the October issues of Vogue Netherlands and Vogue Russia and the front page of a little magazine called Lucky – which is usually reserved for the Hollywood celebrity set. Editorially Karlie is no slouch either and her continued presence in Vogue Paris is a testament to that fact – all in all if you’re in need of a Karlie fix you’re sure to get it this month.

Full Throttle

July 11th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Saying that Isabeli Fontana is sexy is a bit like saying water is wet, but the Brazilian bombshell is in rare form in the pages of Vogue Russia. Shot by Terry Tsiolis and sporting a variety of plunging necklines and sinewy shapes selected by Karen Langley Isabeli radiates heat in the sleek studio images. Even when she’s covered in by graphic Proenza Schouler and Christopher Kane prints she still manages to look every inch the vixen.

Cool Summer

May 22nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Purity is a theme often tackled by editorials, but few handle it with as deft a hand as Emma Tempest (Jed Root) In the pages of Vogue Russia Tempest shoots Jacquelyn Jablonski looking serene in all-white against a backdrop of pale skies and cool waves. The minimal wardrobe selected by stylist Camilla Pole features the latest from Proenza Schouler, J.W. Anderson and Balenciaga, combined to create a crisp and modern take on monochromatic dressing. As always Jacquelyn delivers in her images, providing the right amount of nonchalance to work with Tempest’s pared down yet evocative photography.
