The March issue of Vogue Italia is a triumph! Starting right off the bat with a stunning cover shot by Steven Meisel of Rianne von Rompaey. This cover is a perfect example of why I have pledged my eternal undying love to Vogue Italia as my favourite Vogue publication and Meisel as my favourite cover artist. They are my most beloved marriage (after Bey & Jay of course) and I hope the separation they were going through is over, because this is what my heart desires – ethereal beauty!

And that’s just the beginning my loves, because inside, oh inside! The cover story is a unique selection of ingénue portraits, just what Meisel does best! Photographers featured in this issue are among the most talented of our time and each of their editorials seem to celebrate their own unique style and remind us just why we love them. I’m going to specifically show you a few stories, but there are also spreads by Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Michel Comte, Miles Aldridge, and Sarah Moon, as well as a third by Paolo Roversi and a second by Ellen von Unwerth & Sølve Sundsbø. Truly we are blessed! Now go buy the issue because there is no sweeter feeling than stroking the glossy pages of a truly magnificent fashion magazine!

Gigi Hadid by Steven Meisel for W, September 2015

This is such a refreshing tribute to Marilyn Monroe. I love when iconic shots are recreated, and there have been some excellent recreations over the years by stars like Madonna, Christina Aguilera, and Scarlett Johansson. What’s extra lovely about this set of model Gigi Hadid by Steven Meisel for the September Issue of W magazine, is that the shots aren’t instantly recognizable as Marilyn tributes. They celebrate Gigi’s own fresh modern style and serve more as inspiration by Marilyn’s iconic work with photographers like Richard Avedon, Douglas Kirkland, Eve Arnold, Cecil Beaton, and Sam Shaw, instead of direct recreations.

The exhibit that will be featured at this year’s Met Gala will be China: Through the Looking Glass, focusing on Chinese imagery in art, fashion and film.  Some of the exhibit’s pieces are highlighted in this editorial from this month’s Vogue,  dramatically photographed by Steven Meisel.  This editorial is yet another example of Fei Fei Sun’s ongoing and ever growing fierceness, giving us some haute couture glam with a vintage feel.

Gemma and Sasha are back in the Prada and Balenciaga Spring 2015 Campaigns

As soon as we saw Gemma Ward return to the runway by opening the Prada Spring 2015 show, we knew that chances were good that she was going to be the face of the Spring ad campaign.  These beautiful pictures of her by Steven Meisel show that the camera still loves her face, that her long lithe lines arrange themselves gorgeously and that her gaze is still just as haunting.  Her doll faced mid 2000’s twin Sasha Pivovarova is also back in the campaign for Balenciaga.  Even though the label isn’t as strong as it was under the guidance of Nicolas Ghesquière, these are still ethereal photographs, with Sasha’s level gaze and gracefully arched body.
