Steven Meisel Page 1
Thanks to her fast-approaching reality television debut on The Face, Naomi Campbell is everywhere these days. And who can complain when she’s looking like this? The legendary supermodel was photographed by Steven Meisel for the February 2013 “About Women” issue of Vogue Italia, and we have the sepia-toned cover and accompanying behind-the-scenes video for all of your viewing pleasure.
She leaps! She laughs! She wears bikinis! Congrats, Kate, you’re officially one of Anna‘s girls now.
Let’s play a little game, shall we?
We are totally loving Alber Elbaz‘s use of real people instead of models, in Lanvin‘s fall campaign. We were so obsessed that we spent a solid afternoon digging up everything we could on the cast of characters, and now we’re learning even more about them in the brand’s new campaign video.
It’s bewitching, it’s dark, it’s…not exactly diverse.
Joan Smalls is really, frighteningly beautiful. Which is why we’re extra pleased that W made her their July cover girl — though reports indicate fellow model Karlie Kloss will also have a version. We’re also looking forward to have her kohl-rimmed eyes replace Tom Cruise and his guyliner staring us down at the newsstand. Well done all around, W!
Karlie Kloss is one of our all-time favorite models. She’s got it all: the face, the walk, the ‘tude — and yes, the body. On the cover of Vogue Italia‘s December issue, Kloss shows off a nice chunk of side-butt. For the Steven Meisel editorial (aptly titled “Body by Kloss”) inside the magazine, the 19-year-old shows a whole lot more.
You probably know that we love fashion, but did you know that we love subways? BECAUSE WE LOVE SUBWAYS. And now Vogue Italia has melded the two!
Well, well, isn’t W Magazine the cleverest in all the land? Next month’s issue has us all sorts of impressed thanks to a particularly brilliant Steven Meisel spread.
Did Steven Meisel try to pull a fast one over on the editors at W? Said W editors sure think so, thanks to the alleged resemblance between editorials Meisel did for both W‘s September issue and Vogue Italia‘s August issue.
We really love Vogue Italia‘s decidedly strange September cover starring a pierced and scissors-wielding Stella Tennant. But the styling choices weren’t random — the cover was inspired by one particular woman with a penchant for the surreal.
The September cover of Vogue Italia reads “Avant-Garde”, and avant-garde it is.
NSFW alert! If you thought the cover of Vogue Italia‘s plus-sized issue was something special, wait until you see the coordinating spread. It is, perhaps, one of the most incredibly scintillating sets of photos we’ve seen in a while, and we’ll take this opportunity to remind you that scintillating sets of photos are more or less our bread and butter.
We first came across Saskia de Brauw on the cover of Carine Roitfeld‘s last issue for Vogue Paris. “Now I found a new girl called Saskia. She has short hair, no one knows her,” she said of the 29-year-old model. Not to doubt Roitfeld’s talent-scouting abilities, but given that de Brauw covers the March issues of both Vogue Paris and Vogue Italia, can the former editrix really take all that credit?
In what may be the most awesome nod to the nineties we’ve ever seen, ck one has just launched a new campaign shot by Steven Meisel (the man behind the original ads featuring ’90s icons like Kate Moss and Jenny Shimizu), in which aughts icons like Lara Stone, Pixie Geldof, Abbey Lee Kershaw, and Alice Dellal dance around wearing CK Jeans in what appears to a small, padded (and camera ready) room.
When Tom Ford debuted his eponymous women’s wear collection back in September, Ford swore no one (other than the select 100 invitees) would see the line until it was actually available for purchase. The collection goes on sale in January and the line’s website goes live next month, which is why Vogue has published a Steven Meisel-shot preview in their December issue, accompanied by a wonderful profile of Ford, which also reveals one of the juiciest and most, erm, titillating blind items we’ve seen in a while.
Madonna and Steven Meisel are not only long-time collaborators, they’re close friends. So when a letter written by Madonna to Meisel in 1991 — from the set of “A League Of Their Own”, no less — hits the web, you know it’s going to be good.
People often think fashion is frivolous and flighty — all aesthetics, with no meaning to back them up. And then there are people like Steven Meisel, whose gut-wrenching spread for Vogue Italia’s August issue features an all black-clad Kristen McMenamy on a sinister, tar-slicked beach.
When we saw a preview of Bottega Veneta‘s Fall 2010 ad campaign, we thought they looked strangely familiar…
