Heidi Klum For Vogue Germany June 2009

On April, 2 I showed you candids of Heidi Klum striking various poses, in many Fall 2009 creations for Vogue Germany.

The pregnant supermodel graces the cover of Vogue Germany June 2009 edition, and from looking at the editorial, it looks like the editor left out 2 of my favourite looks of Heidi from that day.

The Atelier Versace Spring 2009 & Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 looks.

Now that gorgeous red Atelier Versace Spring 2009 dress will always be known as the dress Emma Roberts ruined – for many of us – at the Costume Institute Gala.

This is the result of that photo shoot, with Heidi in various looks, from dramatic film diva, and enigmatic Hollywood star to naturally Klum.

I adore her in the Balmain picture, plus I need to own those Roger Vivier feather heeled shoes.

Diane Kruger For Vogue Italia March 2009

I would have missed this stunning Couture Vogue Italia March 2009 editorial titled individuallure featuring Diane Kruger, had it not been sent to me, and I’m truly grateful, as I don’t think she has ever done such a magnificent shoot.

It’s the definition of European high-fashion.

Being an ex-model the posing would have come naturally, but she uses her acting skills to pretend to be a show girl to pull off this shoot.

The editorial was shoot by Mark Seliger with an old theater as the backdrop.

I can’t decide which picture is my favourite. I love them all.

For her editorial, Diane was dresses in some of finest pieces from the Spring 2009 Couture runways.

Vogue US May 2009: Faces of the Moment

It’s that time again, when we all get excited to see who Vogue US deem to be one of the Faces of the Moment. This issue is usually a collectors item.

The girls who made this epic issue are: (from left to right)

Liya Kebede, Natalia Vodianova, Anna Jagodzinska, Isabeli Fontana, Lara Stone, Jourdan Dunn, Raquel Zimmermann, Caroline Trentini and Natasha Poly.

The cover was shot by Steven Meisel, who is featured in a special article about his lasting influence on the world of modelling.

Everyone deserves to be on this cover, but I must say I’m distraught that Lakshmi Menon didn’t make it, she’s had a phenomenal year.


Claudia Schiffer For Vogue Italia March 2009

Here’s something we don’t see very often, Claudia Schiffer with a different hairstyle.

In her Vogue Italia March 2009 editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier, the supermodel is entirely dressed in Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2009 collection.

It looks to have been a very difficult shoot, as she is crouching down in a back of a limo, with some very shapely, voluminous dresses, but she manages to look fieeeerce.

Miss Goodie-two-shoes even holds a cigarette in one of the pictures.

Lucy Liu For Vogue China April 2009

Lucy Liu graces the cover of Vogue China’s April 2009 edition. She is wearing one of those cute mini dresses from Roberto Cavalli’s Spring 2009 collection, with the skirt that kicks out at the back.

This issue is full of fantastic colours, so the bright yellow and green colours on the cover, is a perfect why to start this Spring issue. Magdalena Frackwiak’s shoot is the most colourful and is truly an outstanding editorial by Solve Sundsbo.

As much as I love the cover, I also love her Balmain shot. Mostly because the dress looks so much better without that large silver belt.

Her shoot was by Mario Sorrenti.

Big thanks to Aja Source


Beyonce Knowles For Vogue US April 2009

I waited and waited for the Beyonce Knowles’ Vogue US April 2009 editorial. I don’t know what I was expecting, but when I finally saw it, I felt quite disappointed.

B was photographed by Mario Testino, but I still feel totally uninspired by her shoot. The shots are quite dull. Maybe because this shoot is all about Beyonce and not Sasha. Sasha has a bit of an edge to her.

With regards to the cover, many bloggers are asking the question: Is Beyoncé’s Vogue cover racist?

Sociological Images blogger said:

“For the second time this year, the Vogue cover features a woman of color, Beyonce. Unfortunately, in line with cultural stereotypes, the issue is the ‘Shape Issue,’ contributing to the stereotype of Black women, and Latina women too, as especially ‘curvy’….”

I look forward to the day when we’re not shocked by a woman of colour being on the cover for Vogue 2 months in a row, and these types of questions are not asked. Until then, I’ll just look at the pretty pictures.

Beyonce Knowles For Vogue Italia March 2009

Whilst I’m impatiently eagerly awaiting Beyonce Knowles’ US Vogue April 2009 editorial, I came across her Vogue Italia March 2009 editorial.

The editorial is a mix of classic Beyonce, with an old school vibe.

B is very much channeling Marilyn Monroe here, who, like Beyonce was curvaceous. I think this is a very encouraging message, which is that you don’t have to be a size 0 actress to grace a high fashion magazine editorial.

I do love the graceful elegant pieces she is wearing, by her favourite designer Giorgio Armani, but I preferred the more edgier editorials from last year, in which Beyonce was taken out of her comfort zone.

Even More Freida Pinto For Vogue India

What can I say about Freida Pinto’s Vogue India March 2009 editorial, that has not been said already? I have totally run out of superlatives. This shoot just keeps getting better and better.

The Lanvin close-up is outstanding. I really love this lipstick on her.

You can read her full interview here and here.

More Freida Pinto For Vogue India March 2009

I have found another picture of Freida Pinto for Vogue India March 2009.

This time she is wearing a lavender and aqua coloured Lanvin Spring 2009 bejeweled dress, with the black embellished runway shoes.

The Vogue cover emerged just hours after it was revealed that Freida is lined up to star in Woody Allen’s next film.

Allen moved quickly to secure the services of the 24-year-old actress, the latest in a long line of female muses featured in his films.

Freida will star alongside Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts and Anthony Hopkins in what will only be her second film.
