Rounding out our 2009 lists are our picks for best editorials of 09. Given that there were literally hundreds of editorials that came out this year, we went with the ones that stood out in our minds, kept us talking or just plain dazzled us. Keeping the list to just 10 was difficult, so be sure to tell us your favorite editorials of 2009 too.
Daria, warrior princess! This high kicking, Russ Meyer influenced editorial was fun and ferocious.
The juxtaposition of those metallic dresses with the modern architecture was beautiful, plus it made us appreciate the incredible design of both.
Pop culture was full of vampires and villains this year, so Klein’s controversial tale of a bloodthirsty Lara was especially relevant.
Who would have thought that Kaws’ artwork and couture would work so perfectly together?
It was exciting to watch this story being shot on Showstudio and then to see the beautiful final result.
