En Vogue

No offense to cover girl Sarah Jessica Parker, but we like our American Vogue best when it focuses on models. Steven Meisel‘s winning feature in the August edition is a good example of why: featuring 10 of the best girls working, styled to the nines by Marie-Amélie Sauvé, the studio shoot is a gorgeous showcase for the best seasonal wares; a Celine blouse worn with a Fendi fur and a Dries skirt – pretty impressive combo.

The mix of favorite faces is also serves as a great way to illustrate issue’s Age theme. Kristen McMenamy, Karen Elson, and Audrey Marnay join newbies like Anais Pouliot and Fei Fei Sun and each shot looks great. That said, the range of ages could be even greater – wouldn’t it have been nice if Vogue had pushed the casting mix one step further and included Carmen dell’Orefice?

MODELS Raquel Zimmermann, Liya Kebede, Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr, Guinevere Van Seenus, Karen Elson, Fei Fei Sun, Anais Pouliot, Arizona Muse, Kristen McMenamy & Audrey Marnay

  1. Amazing ed, amazing styling! The shots are great, but I think Fei Fei’s is the best! She needs a VI cover, stat.

    But once again Anais Pouliot proves she has no business modeling.

  2. yes those girls r amazing but still feels like we r looking at the same images over n over again

  3. I like Fei Fei and Arizona’s pictures, the rest I don’t get… To put the text “Let it shine” (4th picture) next to a woman who looks absolutely bored seems kinda strange to me.

  4. What I like of Candice is… well, she can be so remarkable from a commercial point of view, “the queen of lingerie”, “gorgeous in a Victoria’s Secret acceptation of the word” (and I’m not mad about it), but at the same time she can have a totally different dimension as well, that (even if I’m not exactly a super fan of her) I have to admit lately I pretty liked…

  5. normally i am the biggest liya fan but her shot is not doing it for me, she looks plain old bored. fei fei’s shot is the only intriguing one.

  6. Arizona’s shot is single handedly the worst shot I have seen in Vogue this year. Raquel outshines them all!!

  7. Come on VOgue, 46 is still young…Oh well, love Fei Fei’s shot. At least they used Fei Fei, they should use her more…
