Vintage Appeal

Vogue Italia kicks 2011 off right with a beautiful vintage inspired cover and corresponding editorial. Steven Meisel and Karl Templer, look back to the days when fashion shows were intimate affairs; just a small room with models carrying cards bearing the number of each look. The focus was entirely on the fashion, not the celebrities in the front row or any other distractions. This story is a treat for anyone who loves clothes – looks by Lanvin, Chanel and Vuitton come to life in Meisel’s photos. As always the model selection is top notch, with VI first timers Anais Mali, Fei Fei Sun, Arizona Muse and Herieth Paul, joining regulars Kinga Rajzak and Freja Beha Erichsen.

  1. poor kinga has been given some awful looks to work. arizona looks like karlie in the first shot of her and fabulous on the cover, love her body language – but fei fei looks the best here. great diversity in this spread

  2. I’m getting a little tired of seeing Freja everywhere with the same poses. But very happy to see Fei Fei Sun doing VI, she’s my favourite asian model.

  3. Kinga’s outfits are awful, but she is working it!
    I love the cover, and have to admit that Arizona is growing on me quickly! Love her look!
    Anais, Herieth, and Fei Fei are breathtaking!
    What a great start to the year! Hopefully Meisel keeps up the good work!

  4. how come only freja and arizona got the cover?
    ALL the girls look pheonomenal. fei fei took my breath away!

  5. I feel as if Sun Fei Fei and Anais Mali were robbed of a cover: their shots are just stunning. I hope Anais has a great season.

  6. … my favorite asian model is Tao Okamoto and she should have been in this editorial … but have to say Fei Fei is stunning in this editorial and a complete standout

  7. Wow, Arizona is a gorgeous woman and a very good model.
    And i’m so happy to see Sun Fei Fei!
    This editorial is breathtakingly good.
    Keep up the good work Meisel.

  8. Shouldn’t Arizone be already included in the top 50? YSL, Prada, Vogue Italia (cover), Vogue UK….. m a j o r.

  9. VI rocks the editorial world like no other. fei fei looks ah-maze! so does henrieth in gucci and marc jacobc. they’re all great!

  10. I would much prefer to see Fei Fei and Arizona on the cover…freja failed this cover, arizona is owning her ….and fei fei’s shots are absolutely gorgeous

  11. im sorry ladies, but FEI FEI SUN totally deserved the cover… those shots of her look soooo stunnning

  12. Herieth, Anais, and Fei Fei are such a pleasant surprise for this kind of editorial, especially being newcomers. Arizona Muse’s is kind of obvious, not that she doesn’t look amazing as well.

    noonoo; I toootally agree! What a missed opportunity, all girls on the cover would have been phenomenal.

  13. FeiFei totally owned the editorial! She’s breathtaking, especially on the first shot! Anais and Henrieth’s shots were also very nice…

  14. herieth looks amazing! all the girls llok great.. freja looks good besides for the cover but maybe cuz ariona is just rocking the hell out of it! great ED!

  15. I’m obsessed with Fei Fei Sun’s look….wow. Also, the second picture in the editorial (the one right above Fei Fei) is FANTASTIC…What a pose! I need to pick up this issue of VI

  16. I want to buy this issue! It really LOOKS retro, I thought it was Pat Cleveland in one of the photos, or Chris Royer… So cool… I love the way they are holding the numbers. I love the whole stylized runway thing. I met a model from the sixties and she showed me how they used to walk and pose, it was SO cool, very very stylized, like a dance.

  17. Hi my family member! I want to say that this post is amazing, great written and include almost
    all significant infos. I would like to see more
