There are few better places to find a sprawling thirty-two page editorial than in an issue of Vogue Italia. Whatever the gallery may think about photographer Steven Meisel the simple fact remains that his regular contribution to the Condé Nast monthly from editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani will be a discussion point whether or not it spits oil.
Ford’s Julia Saner, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Sigrid Agren featured for the Valentino spring 2011 couture collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli. In addition to presenting two looks Julia Saner, current face of Valentino S/S 11, closed the show.
Blonde curls…white socks & heels…no, this isn’t a Harmony Korine film treatment, this is the BCBG Max Azria S/S 11 by photographer David Roemer featuring Ford’s Anne Sophie Monrad. Anne Sophie slots in perfectly for this spring campaign that will no doubt have almost everyone longing for warmer months as they slog through slushy Manhattan streets.
Of all the goods that come from the great People’s Republic, from the ubiquitous, nearly everything touching your skin at this very moment, to the extremely rare, terbium, dysprosium, yttrium, thulium, and lutetium, Vogue China has to be this page’s favorite. It is easily the priciest Condé Nast glossy on offer in North America, $34.95 at our West Village newsstand, but consistently boasts many of the the better editorials.
Far be it for the Ford Models Blog to sniff at a campaign, we know who pays our rent. That said, there is nothing wrong with showing a little cheek by highlighting some of the more obvious features of any major campaign. Before that, however we’d like to cover the basics, namely that Ford Men’s Francisco Lachowski features for the Armani Exchange S/S 11 campaign by photographer Matthew Scrivens and fashion editor Kate Lanphear.
