The iconic duo of supermodels Amber Valletta and Shalom Harlow land Vogue Hong Kong’s March 2023 cover, marking the magazine’s anniversary issue. The stunning photographs captured by the renowned Craig McDean, showcase the enduring beauty and charisma of the legendary models.
Styled by Dena Neustadter Giannini, the duo is adorned in exquisite Prada ensembles, ranging from deconstructed suits to elegant top and skirt combinations. The artful hair styling of Diego Da Silva and the impeccable makeup of Holly Silius further accentuates their striking looks. The March issue of Vogue Hong Kong is out on newsstands now.
Beyond their arresting appearance, the bond between the two supermodels truly shines through. Having been friends for over three decades, their connection is palpable, adding an extra layer of depth and authenticity to their already magnetic presence. The pair previously posed in WSJ. Magazine together as well.
As Shalom Harlow reminisces about her enduring friendship with Amber Valletta, she reflects on their unlikely beginnings. “When Amber and I met, we were still teenagers. We saw each other from the lens of high school cliques. Amber was preppy and clean-cut with an Hermès scarf. I was grungy with ripped jeans and old band T-shirts. We would’ve run in different circles back in our respective hometowns.”
Yet, as fate would have it, they discovered a profound commonality that transcended their initial differences. “Once we started talking childhood dynamics – our single mothers and absentee fathers, and our eldest sibling syndrome – our commonality was evident. Our first dinner date lasted hours and culminated in a decision to live together. The rest is history, as they say.”
