  1. Not only is Karlie fabulous on the runway, but her editorials just keep getting better and better. The makeup and styling are gorgeous! I’m loving the color saturation, and how Alexi used that blurring effect, which seems so popular of late, reservedly, and to beautiful effect.


  2. This is a cheap blur effect done with a software filter – it bears no relationship to Roversi’s technique, and frankly is merely a gimmick in this shoot.

    I think the shoot would actually look better WITHOUT the filter which serves no real purpose. Lubomirski is a better photographer than this, his shoots are usually exciting and he should, for now, stick with what he is familiar with.

    Karlie continues to expand her repertoire and I admire her for it. But I am still not “engaged” by her editorial work. She remains so cool and detached, even untouchable. (The effete setting and dogs and deathly lipstick only reinforce that effect). And for god’s sake where are her endless legs? Hidden in every shot.

    No, this does not work for me nor convince me of Karlie’s skill, so widely trumpeted, as a photographic model.

    • um…it’s called a tilt shift lens, not a filter. hold your gimmick comments to where they’re appropriate and learn something about lenses before you slam alexei or this story.

  3. Karlie is so naturally beautiful that I (personally) hate to see her with all that makeup.  Loved her previous editorial with Testino much more.  

  4. I do agree with the above comment, Karlie is naturally beautiful but makeup is also an art… It’s not just to enhance beauty. Thus, I personally feel the makeup is perfect for this editorial and its styling.

  5. I often feel that Karlie recycles the same facial expressions endlessly, and this editorial is no different. I also don’t see how a tilt-shift lens is appropriate here. There may have been a good idea initially for this editorial, but the execution is poor, in my opinion.
