August seems to be a good month for model covers. First, Lara Stone appears on the cover of W and now Christy Turlington lands American Vogue. If only this could happen every month! (tfs)
In order to capture Lara Stone for her W cover shoot, it appears that Steven Klein moved away from his signature style of leather and grittiness in exchange for a more softer approach. This softer approach includes looks from Chanel and Oscar de la Renta as styled by fashion director, Alex White. And as innocent as Lara may seem in fluffy pink and pigtails, her piercing stare reminds us that she still remains a mighty force in the fashion world.
The hair spectacular shown in 2008′s “Hair Storm” can be attributed to the sheer genius of hairstylist, Luigi Murenu, and photographer Sølve Sundsbø. Sundsbø manages to rarely disappoint and always stamps his own unique brand on photos. Besides the photography, it is quite the treat to see the likes of Natasha Poly, Isabeli Fontana, Doutzen Kroes and Natasa Vojnovic in the same editorial. There is nothing better than a multi-model shoot done right.
Lara Stone is a model known for her sexual appeal so it’s no surprise that the French brand, Eres, would tap her for their fall-winter campaign. Last season, Hilary Rhoda was captured by Camila Akrans for both the swimwear and lingerie ads. WWD reports that they will be going in the same direction with photographer Jan Welters.
Previews were posted not too long ago of Lara Stone’s spread with the legendary actor, Morgan Freeman, in this month’s Vogue US. Fortunately, we now get to view the series as a whole.
The pairing of Lara Stone and Morgan Freeman may seem like an unlikely one, but somehow Bruce Weber manages to pull it off. Set in Miami, “Taking It To The Streets” has an enigmatic quality to it. The chemistry between Morgan and Lara is amazing, and this deters from being a typical model/celebrity editorial.
