The Feminine Mystique

There is something about the way Mario Sorrenti creates a picture that just brings out the best in his subjects. In the latest issue of W, Sorrenti takes 18 of the most beautiful models and shoots them looking seductive and sensual: some of the pictures work better than others but he manages to capture the essence of each girl.

  1. All look elegant & cool except for Jessica Miller and Guinevere Van Steenus, who look like female bodybuilders – these 2 are getting thick!

  2. @ Erikak

    You sound quite silly. I normally dont respond to comments like that, but this is riduculous. Since when is looking like a real woman wrong? Being “thick” (considering both of them are still extremely small compared to the average woman) is a good image to promote. I guess you like bones sticking out. You know, like an ad for anorexia or bullemia.

  3. Lara’s image is wonderful.
    Liya, Iselin, Eniko, Anna, all amazing..

    I-LOVE-Valerija! She was so funky-chic at Chanel Couture. Giving you that face and pose that pokes you right in the gut. So macabre.

    2010 is shaping up to be quite the blissful continuation of master photography as suspected.

    I’m swooning over that bookmatched Walnut Burl folding divider in Sigrid’s shot. Drool.

  4. No words to explain, each model is very beautiful then each other, my uncountable kisses and love for all of them.

  5. I like Jessica Miller,Freja and Karmen Pedaru..Reaaaally like them..And Liu Wen is gorgeous..But I miss Natalia Vodianova and Natasha Poly here…

  6. Edita looks amazing and Iselin just blows my mind! Seriously. That shot of her is poster worthy. No wonder she’s the center image in my “Fashion! Fashion! Fashion!” print hanging on my wall. And what I love about Lara is that you can always tell it’s her but you always look twice because she shoots so amazingly. Why can’t more models be like her?

  7. Iselin is so sexy in this picture. i used to think that she was too skinny but in this picture is perfect!!!

  8. Iselin Steiro is undoubtedly the Queen of Posing. I love her.

    Lara is super aware of her body, how to pose in a certain way. That’s why she’s very successful.

    Guinevere in the other hand, fell flat. Looking short and fat. Her big bouffant didn’t help either.

  9. Liu wenn really captured the theme. Seductive and sensual.

    That Geldoff girl missed the memo. She just look plain dirty. Not seductive nor sensual at all.

  10. I shot Lindsay years ago , she looks the best here ! She really has grown leaps and bounds ! I love this works but I am not in love with how muscular some of the girls look
