Numero 86 ”Cartoon”

August 11, 2007

I have always thought that Vogue is the ultimate fashion bible and a mag that no fashion lovers can live without. But ever since it has became more and more commercial, I decided to turn to Numero and gosh, what a surprise. Now I can have another magazine of  pure artistic fashion to ogle on other than Vogue Italia. And Greg Kadel is a darn good photographer too.

This issue is titled ‘Cartoon’, with the unstoppable Sasha Pivovarova on the cover in Christian Dior. Paying tribute to comics and cartoons, models wore the new season’s clothes and are styled as some famous characters.

Start off with covergirl Sasha in Dolce&Gabbana in an editorial called ‘I’m just drawn like that’.
This shot totally evokes ‘femme fatale’ to full and Sasha’s incredibly eerie looks suit this theme real well.

Ok I don’t know who is this model but she is playing goth chick ‘Emily the Strange’… in a CHANEL bubble jacket and iconic quilted bag. This is when class meets rebel which turns surprisingly f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s! The hair reminds me of Jessica Stam’s Dior ads though but it’s really as haunting as seeing Adam’s family.

Jessica Miller in a Lanvin studded metallic dress as ‘Spider Woman’. I don’t even know spidey has got a female companion but she looks cool enough to climb those walls in this kick-ass suit.

Shannan Click in Jean Paul Gaultier and Lanvin boots.
Have you heard of Chibi Maruko-Chan? She’s a very popular Japanese cartoon character in Asia –a smart & quirky young school girl who is very petite. Part of the meaning of her name is ‘cherry’ and so that gives a reason why there’re two gigantic cherries hanging off Shannan’s shoulders. I think they add volume to this shot too.

La balade de la mer salée means ‘The walk of the salty sea’ so I guess Anja Rubik is playing Popeye here. Eveybody is talking about Anja’s new blonde crop which is so handsome and she actually looks like the iconic Edie Sedgwick!

This looks really similar. Hilary Rhoda, who’s in Azzedine, has got such a vampire-ish features.

Ok since there’s no such character called Wonder Girl, this modelling new-comer Siri Tollerod, in Hermes, is probably imitating Wonder Woman here. Electrifying and powerful.

Hell, I’m so going to get my hands on this issue once it hits the stands.

    I always found Sasha bland and boring but the Numero cover is fabulous!
