Curious about what Anna comes up with for Vogue’s next cover, I discovered, much to my surprise, that it was a model! And that’s a noble, yet rare thing to do, Anna!
However, there’s still to debate whether Gisele falls into the models category or is she just being transplanted to the “starland”! Why? All you have to do is read fragments of the web article to see the dream life she’s leading with a perfectly fit athlete and her perfectly harmonious spirit. Gisele Bundchen covers (and so much more) Vogue US April 2010! (the story continues right after the jump with more images! Click here for the gallery!)
I know you heard this before, and you’ve even heard it from me, still, I feel compelled to repeat myself: Gisele has that mummy look she never had before. Yep, mothers do have something special in their look. Especially in their early mothers life! That brings something new to old Gisele, too bad it’s not Anna’s contribution. What irks me about this Gisele’s Earth Mother story is the sanctification of Gisele’s persona. Suddenly she’s more than a model. She’s a Na’vi! How uninspired and entertainment-submerged must be the person who wrote the article as to talk about a real life person in computer-sci-fi generated terms?
From all the world’s vocabulary, it had to be Na’vi? (for those of you who are not yet familiarized with the concept and the visuals, Na’vi is the computer generated population from the planet Pandora, also fruit of Avatar’s scenarists imagination!) I admire Gisele and feel the righteousness of her covering Vogue’s Shape issue. Then again, if we’re to relate to shape issues, why bring on a goddess to make us all feel puny and irrelevant? Especially all those young mothers who look nothing near Gisele only four months after giving birth?
To draw an early conclusion before feeling the tension mount: this is yet another perfect example of how Anna likes to hide fashion underneath thick layers of entertainment and Good Ol’ American dream stories. And then we all wake up to this cloudy reality far from the Na’vi ideals and wonder if those who depressed from not being able to touch the Pandora reality were that off the common sense line!
