Signature Styles

Sharif Hamza‘s latest editorial for Vogue Russia boasts a flawless cast, unique styling and some incredibly cool shots. The blue tinted moody story features Simon Robins‘ eclectic mix of designer labels that tackles every seasonal trend imaginable; minimal, maximal, plain ol’ over the top – it is all there. Of course almost any trend would look good in this lineup, Coco Rocha, Ana Beatriz Barros, Ylonka Verheul, Jeneil Williams, Dree Hemingway, Sedene Blake, Alessandra Ambrosio and Patricia van der Vliet work each look to the fullest possible extent.

  1. Love Jeneil.
    The colors and set-up are very reminiscent of Steven Klein who I adore. These shots are ok, but not quite great.

  2. LLLLOOOOOOVVVVEEEEE it. So fresh and clean. I missed Coco. And why is Patricia only ranked 29th? She deserves top 20 status.

  3. You do not know how happy I am to see this kind of diversity in a high fashion magazine! Every shot is stunning! (also Ana Beatriz Barros should be on the Gisele supermodel level, in my opinion)

  4. i love the use of black models it brings a twisted that was needed, AND COCO ADDS EVERYTHING TO THIS SHOOT

  5. Coco looks great. I don’t see why they were making such a big deal about her size. She’s still working it to the fullest.

  6. Was my comment deleted? Why? What I meant to say is that it’s nice to see a diverse cast without causing a big stir. Usually it’s always all one color, or slightly offensive (e.g. Daria in room full of black people). The casting in this ed is refreshing.

  7. *excuse me, I thought my comment was deleted. I didn’t notice I had this site open on two seperate pages.

  8. wow i love the shoot in general, although i am not too crazy about the third picture. that model’s features are a bic too ackward for fashion

  9. this is cute! Sedene is turning into a star! Jeneil is amazing and Ana Beatriz is shines in her shoots, very refine… She is back, and Alessandra is always major!

  10. God whoever cast this is a genius.. Ana Beatriz has deserved a beauty contract for a loooong time, the girl is such a beauty, just unreal, one of the most beautiful models ever.

    All the girls look great, even loving Alessandra who I’m not really into, and Sedene!! I’m mad about her!

  11. interesting casting! I agree it’s a bit too Steven Klein overall. But Klein is a great photog to reference.

    Love the styling in the last shot.

  12. I love Ylonka and Patricia sooooo much, but here… here not so much actually! and I say that after taking a look at the whole editorial… :/ even if in one pic (not here… d’oh!) Ylonka shows her well-known and amazing “Prada face”…
    Btw they are my fav between the models you can find in here. And luckily they did, do and (hopefully) will do better (“better”: imo) things for sure.

  13. Love this story, Sharif was Klein’s assistant which explains the influence. Love the casting, older girls versus newer girls, great for both Elite NY and NYMM. There are some more images to the story, a great one of Ylonka, Janelle why didnt you post it ?

  14. ^ Which image was it? I try to not post the entire story, just give people a taste of the editorial, but I can add another shot to the post.

  15. coco rocha back to top 50 women i dont know why they took out coco she had a lot of campaign s/s 2010 and now f/w 2010 she had morw work than other models on list like Ranya she is amazing but coco it’s better

  16. This is a great issue of Vogue Russia, Natalia V on the cover by M&M,sad to think its the last one under the direction of Aliona Doletskaya & Simon Robins as the fashion director.. What were Conde nast thinking ? New editor in chief from Russian Tatler ??

  17. wow… what a cool setting to feature the latest collections… 😉
    so tired of the models jumping and posing emotionlessly…

  18. I am loving what seems to be the return of good ol’ “Fashion”. Back to selling the goods alongside the creative artistry.

  19. Alessandra needs to move up in the top 50 asap, she and Ana BB are working those shots as if they never even stepped foot onto a commercial shoot.

  20. I didn’t know Ana Beatriz’s power!!! She looks amazing, the highlights of this editorial is she!!!

  21. so everybody’s raving about Coco here, but honestly Ylonka blows her out of the water. When will somebody notice?

  22. Long live Aliona and Simon. They elevated Russian Vogue to new standards, up there with the great Vogues we love, French, Italian, Japanese. Lets hope it doesn’t slip into commercial mediocrity without them
