Jourdan Dunn @ Women (NY) We still think it would have had more impact to release a Black Issue in september... there is one thing that surely doesn't disappoint us: it offers an incredible opportunity to an incredible model. Jourdan Dunn. After a topnotch season, peaked at Prada, she deserved something that big in her portfolio. She deserved a major cover and we're more than glad it's actually a Meisel moment. After all, the concept doesn't really matter as long as you can see one of the best model getting more exposure. We always... [Lire la suite]
Anabela @ AL Models, IMG It's time to say she's more than a teenie-queenie now. Her editorial power has grown slowly yet the best way possible, adding each time a serious extra to her book. From the desinterested look in Vogue Nippon to the snobbish vibe of her looks in Harper's Bazaar, she's been playing with all the different sides of her potential (and what to think about her own V#53 performance ?). While some models can stick brilliantly to a definite role, some others are just excellent when it comes to show their... [Lire la suite]
Giedre Dukauskaite @ New York Models When we saw her this morning (the first picture is actually the very first thing we saw when we woke up) with her cute little dress and her innocent smirk we immediately thought Giedre was going to surprise us once again. And she did. She does it everytime, bringing the same freshness in every editorial. And this time it's Vogue Italia, things are going their way for the currently busy Lithuanian.
Siri Tollerod @ Joy Models (Milan), Trump Model Management (NY) Miles Aldridge isn't among our favorite photographer for no reasons, no blind love in this case. We're always thankful to him to keep the real and beautiful kitsch alive. The colorful, dramatic, poetic kitsch full of useless details that make the pictures even much stronger. Pictures as pictures. Kitties are stranded between dreams and nightmares, Siri Tollerod is the perfect character crossing this unreal world of old furniture and wallpapers without... [Lire la suite]
Erin Heatherton @ Joy Models (Milan) We're not impressed by Meisel's latest cover for Vogue Italia. Not thrilled by another cover for Natalia Vodianova. Don't see the point, don't see this mag's vibe in this choice. Want to be astonished by their covers. At least we can still rely on the contents. Sure they'll be an editorial with Natalia. But some nice surprises to expect as well. As Erin Heatherton in the beauty editorial and a few fresh faces to expect. Icon ? Icons ? We don't really need to be told who it is and what makes an...

Erin Heatherton @ Joy Models (Milan), Marilyn (Paris) and Marilyn (NY) Erin Heatherton. The kind of name that is easy to remember. Sounds good, sounds familiar. Just like her, after all. She's got this kind of cuteness which hits your eyes at first sight and will remain in your mind forever. Everything sounds simple and natural but if there is no doubt she's a natural beauty, that looks effortlessly great even after washing away her make-up in backstage, there's something much more elaborated about her. What's exactly the secret... [Lire la suite]
Margaryta Senchylo by Greg Lotus, courtesy of Joy Models Now we know this brand new issue of Vogue Italia is going to be amazing. More than amazing. More than awesome. The cover is marvelous (see below), dreamy, the main editorial by Meisel is pure love with a star-studded casting and the countryside theme seems to be shining all over the issue. Just check the "Suggestions" part, shot by Greg Lotus. Remember how graceful she was holding a shrimp in Vogue Germany, Margaryta Senchylo must be the most talented model for... [Lire la suite]
Vogue Italia june'07by Steven Meiselmodels: Adina Fohlin, Malgosia Bela(also featured in this ed: Rie Rasmussen, Bridget Hall...) thanks Modelhistory for the scans
Last year, it was Coco Rocha who was one of Steven Meisel's favorite models for his Italian Vogue editorials. A powerful collaboration. Also Heather Bratton (we miss her a lot... never will forget her) did an amazing job on his pics, sometimes together with Coco. Other rather recent names include Sasha Pivovarova, Hilary Rhoda and Irina Lazareanu (I've just read the jan'06 issue again this morning) and next one might be Irina Kulikova. But let's check what today's like before speculating about tomorrow. Today, it's Kinga Rajzak.... [Lire la suite]
A rumor said it would be Courtney Love on the cover. I have nothing against her... as a singer ! I prefer models on Vogue covers by far and this one hasn't one but two (great !!!) models instead of Courtney. Just love it, just can't wait to see what's inside. Coco and Hilary, simply wow !
