Dewi/Elite. Ph by Nick Knight for Pirelli 04
Dior-master and showstudio.com genius Nick Knight’s 2004 Pirelli calendar is out and about and the results are true to his highly experimental nature. Featured this year are Adina/Next, Natalia/DNA, Maria Carla/DNA, Jessica Miller/Next, Esther de Jong/DNA, Ai/Marilyn, Amanda/IMG, Alek/IMG, Frankie/IMG, Karolina/DNA, Liberty/1 Mgmt and Polyanna….And there is a lot of client swapping going on in the photographer’s ranks for the Spring 04 campaigns with Mario Testino adding Kors, not to mention Estee Lauder to his CV while Steven Meisel is back in the driver’s seat for Calvin Klein while adding Bill Blass to his rotation. In the meantime Max Mara is now a Craig McDean project…. But which models are shooting what? Our spy from the Louis Vuitton set is confirming MDC’s earlier buzz about “legendary multiples” with such majors as Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss,Liya Kebede, Angela Lindvall, Karen Elson and Amber Valetta reporting for work with Mert and Marcus. God bless Vuitton!…. The Prada has gone multiple too, mingling a very legendary name in a roster of new faces. But the legend is not a predictable one. Again, mum’s the word. Regarding the new girls and boys – it’s a revolving door- with the unworthy being promptly sent home. More next week!
