  1. mario testino is.. amazing!! 😀 Love the whole editorial, fabulous pics!

  2. a nice ‘clin d’oeil” or homage to the good old days of US Vogue with the 90’s mega supermodels.
    I still remember to this day one shoot where you had: Carla, Cindy, Stephanie, Linda, Claudia, Cindy, Nadja, Christy, Naomi in one spread. Ah those where the days, Funny enough in this shoot here, they are all made to look so alike that it is hard to tell who is who!? It tells me a lot about this generation…call me nostalgic!

  3. The styling is amazing but it does not feel like an editorial and the backgrounds could be a lot better. I am happy to see that US Vogue is using models of color.

  4. i hate the bowl haircut that the asian models sport. it never looked good, and still doesnt

    • Maybe it’s an homage to the bowl cut that most Asian kids grow up having. I personally think it’s cute (and maybe I’m biased because I too grew up with a bowl cut).

  5. I really like the concept, and the first picture is very beautiful and ethereal, but I just don’t see how the third picture fits. Maybe I’m missing something here.

  6. its good that vogue is useing girls of color but why are all the whites together and blacks and asians together, why couldn’t they be mixed???? i don’t get it

  7. Good idea, but for me it falls flat. I agree with the commenter above, why do they all have to be grouped together by race?

    Love the Rodarte!!! Proenza and Marc close second.. The rest fall short… Grace and Mario definitely a great collabo!!

  9. Chanel Iman is so out of place, totally ruins the shot. Why put the worst model in the centre?

  10. If you read the issue you’ll see that the girls were all grouped by their ethnicities, their hair colors, and nationalities.

  11. The Asian models are killing it!!! Love how they look in the clothes!! Best shot!!

    Really? Is it necessary to separate races, US Vogue?
