On A Wim

Peter Lindbergh pays tribute to director Wim Wenders’ classic, Wings of Desire with a dreamy black and white story in Numero starring Daphne Groeneveld and actor Pascal Greggory. This isn’t the first time Lindbergh has referenced Wenders fashion fans may remember his 93′ Bazaar editorial featuring Amber Valletta, as an angel watching over Manhattan. We like to think of the Numero feature as a continuation of that story, with Daphne taking on the role of angel with aplomb.

  1. A mixture of Lara Stone ans Esther Cañadas. The ed with Amber was a lot better. A true clasic!

  2. Daphne imo is maybe one of the few models capable of epic shots nowadays; I love her natural intensity, and her peculiar and unique beauty (the kind at school guys may generally consider “not so positevely”: from this point of view, I hope models like Daphne will open those young minds to a wider concept of beauty…) simply leaves me wordless – everytime.

  3. people should know not to do a remake if it cant be better then the original.. she also looks so bad… what s the pont !!!

  4. Some models are pristinely beautiful or darkly lovely, but Daphne is luciously beautiful. Lush and pretty, with a look you cannot pin down. But this male fantasy of such an older man with here . . . I’m not buying it.

  5. these pictures prove that daphne (while pretty like a bratz doll) still has some maturing to do as a model. she can vamp it up easily but can’t emote more than one look.

    not even lindbergh who can bring so much emotion out of these girls could do it.

    pascal is the highlight here.

    and yes, the pics with amber (and paul cavaco in one shot) are incomparable.

  6. ps. a lot of the best shots (IMO) from amber’s bazaar story aren’t even in that link. and the photo with her standing under the theater marquee isn’t the shot that ran in the magazine – they photoshopped bruce willis’ name out!

  7. Haha! i find it amusing that people are bothered by the old guy. i find that he brings an earthiness to the photos. it stops being a model with pretty clothes and becomes something different. plus it adds some delicious subtext to the whole thing. im not a daphne fan and i think they should stop her lara-lisation. with darker hair and eyebrows i might reconsider my position
