It may have started on wrong foot.. ahem cover, but Harper’s Bazaar US September 2009 seem to go on wonderfully after you turn the first page. (I still need cleaning up after that Moss thing! No make-up trace, that’s a start!)
Supermodels (missed them yet?) go supernatural for Peter Lindbergh‘s lenses. Bare, beautiful faces and secrets to flawless complexions, that’s the only thing this Harper’s Bazaar pictorial needs! Just few words written here and there, the impressive makeup-less super portraits make me feel that there’s still hope for healthy fashion! (more pictures right after the jump!) (photos via)
Oh, what a royal issue this Vogue Italy July 2009! It seems year after year, the July Issues of Vogue Italia are set to defy any Summer magazine standards and serve amazingly beautiful content. Chilled.
Christy Turlington, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, Naomi Campbell for Vogue Italy July 2009. It’s enough to make me buy it!
So many years gone by and I still find myself amazed by the Supers power! Photographed by Mario Sorrenti and styled as true timeless icons, Christy, Eva, Helena and Naomi set new boundaries to perfection, new heights to modelling. I’m also (half) aware by the advantages of black and white photography and the magic aura of long, wavy hair (Eva makes a Monroe-esque exception), but honestly, are there any flaws to these Super Portraits?

Not too long ago, Cindy Crawford’s bedding collection was presented to the world. Now we’re getting word about Helena Christensen working with Old Molly on her very own linens collection too!
Now how strange is that? having two supermodels in their 40s, designing bed sheets? En plus, Helena Christensen bedding collection for Old Molly (for which she’s also the spokesface) is charity oriented: the proceeds will go to Chernobyl Children’s Project International! Take that, Cindy! (hm, now that I’ve come to think about it, it puts Linda’s getting out of bed for no less than $10,000 in a completely different light!) (via, photo via)
Last for Yves Saint Laurent was Naomi Campbell, before that, Kate Moss. With two supers consequently in a year of ad campaigns, Yves Saint Laurent is clearly promoting the Supermodels Reign over fashion and all things connected. Claudia Schiffer is the Spring face for YSL legendary Manifesto. While Kate Moss did a hallucinating (literally) video last year, I hope for better this Valentine’s, when Claudia’s YSL Manifesto will be released. I was getting used to Naomi YSL campaign. She looked far better (to me) than Claudia Schiffer for YSL. Which do you prefer? (via wwd)
UPDATE: More pictures from the YSL Spring Summer 2009 ad campaign added right after the jump!
I was waiting for this. I bet everyone was. And even if the cover doesn’t feature the supermodels, the goodies lay inside.
It’s like a wine getting better with age – the six wonders that not only the connaisseurs appreciate go Vanity Fair in September for our eyes delight. Even if fashion photography doesn’t really embrace the smile as a common used pose, the six supers are all smiling wide in the first picture from the editorial. As much as I would’ve appreciated it, I still find them artificial. The only one with a semi-natural smile is Naomi (more after the jump)
Did you ever pictured your Mango high street fast fashion store the perfect store for the +60 age?
Well maybe you haven’t, but the marketing team behind Mango did! They contracted Lauren Hutton for the Fall 2008 campaign. And Lauren is 64 years old. The supermodels are officially back and running full speed. Just look at her! I was thinking… If a current model ad campaign falls into oblivion because the new supers are taking all the spotlight, where would the newcomers go? How to handle the supers-pressure?
You know how everyone is high on nineties supermodels. Well this is a flashback moment with some of the supers.
If you missed Nadja Auermann, Karen Mulder, Elle McPherson, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Helena Christensen, Carla Bruni and Eva Herzigova, you’ll feel delighted to see some of their glorious catwalk moments. The only thing I didn’t liked was the last scene, Eva turning her head. She looks rather strange. What do you think?
