THE ICONS OF PERFECTION

cover

Vogue Japan, September 2014

September 2014 is all about women power and their force on the world of fashion. First, The Instagirls took over the American scene, starring young and beautiful on the cover of the September Issue 2014 of Vogue USA, styled by Tonne Goodman and here is the newest cover of Vogue Japan, celebrating their 15th anniversary with the catwalk’s finest. As a general trend of the photos, I noticed that the top models of the 80’s, 90’s, 00’s  have their photos made black and white, to make a statement, to embellish a portrait by taking of its natural embellishments, the color shades. Giovanna Battaglia, fashion editor and stylist at Vogue Japan alongside Anna dello Russo and photographers Luigi Murenu and Iango Henzi created this huge magazine spread filled with edge, eclecticism, classicism and perfection. I am not talking about perfection that meets the untrained eye, but that unique perfection that only an experienced poser can achieve. This is the video from the photo shoot:
