Superman Returns!

Somewhere in the Vogue office lurks a latent comic book fanatic. Every few months an editorial taken straight from the pages of DC or Marvel pops up to remind us of the joyous pleasure comics can bring. For January visions of Superman and Lois Lane run through Mario Testino‘s colorful and lighthearted editorial. With David Gandy as the archetypal hero and Carolyn Murphy as his designer clad counterpart, the story could not be more cheerfully cartoonish.

Carolyn Murphy and David Gandy by Mario Testino for Vogue US

  1. Don’t like Carolyn at all! but the idea is good. I believe there are better looking models that would of looked better in these pics

  2. Carolyn had no connection with the camera during this shoot. She looks like an aloof woman and not a model in these pictures.

  3. carolyn did a got job portraying “all american” young mum, young girl, older sister? well, i think she did a good job. superman aka david is pure image of original.

  4. Carolyn Rocks ! i disagree that she was not right for this story, she embodies the image of a powerful working mother ! the child (playing a daughter) in this story would have looked like a kid sister if they had used say Stam, Coco, Caroline T etc.

  5. i actually think it’s great. carolyn personifies all-american and david, well, he doesn’t break any mirrors… would’ve loved to see a more intimate shot of them together. good job, mario!

  6. Carolyn is a great model. I can not deny that. I just feel this is not a good editorial with her featured in it. “Superman” and the “child” out-shine her by a landslide. If that was the direction the photographer and creative director were going for, then they succeeded. Every single picture is a side profile shot. Her presence in the pictures is unnoticeable in comparison to others I have seen of her.

  7. Carolyn Murphy is soooo hot in here! But this story i dont really fell the editorial enough. but i still love the story here. 😉

  8. Beautifull!!especially the 1st and 3rd picture. The 3rd picture, very well -thought, one interesting thing, a blower must have blown action in the cape into the right direction, also on the bossom-area of the dress, to the right. but the hair of Carolyn goes left, so that must be a solid head twist.
    Well done, supermodel!

  9. all of carolyns pic have the same expression and looks the same in every pic… whats up with all the yellow on her?? not my favorite.
