Vogue Italia, Steven and Franca

….talk to the NY Times Cathy Horyn.

Conspicuous by their Presence.

The Times piece includes a rare and fascinating glimpse into the world of Mr. Meisel. The magazine itself is a landmark issue and a must buy for everyone even remotely interested in fashion and modeling! Cathy also writes on her blog about the shoot. Make sure you read the comments on Cathy’s blog, some extremely passionate and well written responses about her article and the whole subject of more diversity in modeling.

Wayne, from MDC, posts his thought on his personal blog. Interesting tidbit, Sessilee now with Major Models was MDC’s MOTW in April 2004, just a baby back then! She’s truly blossomed into a gorgeous young woman especially as lensed by Steven…
