US Vogue seems to only put models on their cover once a year these days, usually to coincide with the Met Ball Anna Wintour hosts in NY in May. This years 'model' edition is out and all the top models featured look absolutely gorgeous. Natalia V is super cute and I love Lara Stone because 1. she's half Dutch, like me and 2. she's different and sexy looking, like a young Bardot and 3. she is 25 and still booking jobs and along with Aggy Deyn and Kate Moss she is representing for the older ladies (they are still super young of course, but ancient for models, if you know what I mean). Nice to see an ethnic mix too. They aren't all blonde Prada robot clones.
Check it out on Pop Sugar - http://www.fabsugar.com/3031748 - and you can vote for your favourite model too.
Steven Meisel shot the cover and there is a further article in the issue, I believe, on his muses over the years. Check out http://www.style.com/vogue/feature/2009_May_Steven_Meisel/.
This guy can make a model's career.
HBO's new film about 'Big' Edie and 'Little' Edie Beale, Grey Gardens, is out soon and Jezebel has a great post about the fashions Drew Barrymore sports in the film as the younger Edie. A colleague told me about the original documentary and while ago and it is apparently amazing. I need to get my hands on it methinks. Meanwhile I wouldn't mind Little Edie/Drew Barrymore's swimsuit with the buttons down the side. Very cute.
And off that topic, don't you think I need to buy this dress?
It is pouffy and has a big white bow on the back. How can I go wrong?
