Steven Meisel

voguemay Vogue US May 2009

American Vogue’s highly anticipated “The Faces of the Moment” cover features Liya Kebede, Anna Jagodzinska, Natalia Vodianova, (front cover) Isabeli Fontana, Lara Stone, Jourdan Dunn, Raquel Zimmermann, Caroline Trentini & Natasha Poly (pull out) by Steven Meisel.

This exceeds my expectations by a mile. Of course I would have loved to see other models like Maryna or Sasha, but it is definitely better than having another celebrity on the cover.

Vogue US is surprising me with their February 2009 issue. First, Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively is on the cover and now this. I am see some new faces in their fashion spreads, which I guess is a good sign. There’s only so many shoots I can take of the same models against boring and blank backgrounds. It appears as if American Vogue is trying to revamp it’s image. Although to be honest, I am a little bit tired of the throwback to 1930s fashion. It’s pretty, but can get dull after awhile.
