The fierce mamas at Vogue Paris

September 26, 2008

 

”Afro-disiaque”   

Photographed by Mario Testino
Styled by Carine Roitfeld
Models: Lakshimi Menon, Yasmine Warsame

Can you say, bad-ass?

Lakshimi Menon finally made her grand appearance in a major Vogue, alongside the super underrated veteran Yasmine Warsame. I was shocked at first to see Lakshimi looking all gangsta, because she is Indian, and her looks are more bound for couture, see the strong jawline and sleepy eyes. Come on she is the face of Hermès and muse of Tisci (Givenchy!), which means elegant > fierce. Sessilee could have taken her role but I wonder if Carine would approve using her for Vogue Paris.

And of course who can ignore the shoes, very outrageous, reminds me of what Janet Jackson would wear to perform (if she dare). But overall, I like the concept and the styling, it’s cheeky fashion at it’s best. The first shot is a Maison Martin Margiela broken disc top and the 6th shot has her holding a yellow smiley face Jean Charles de Castelbajac clutch…Love them.
[P.S the shoes are by Boris Chez East Village @NYC]

    Jasmine is my favorite model of all times. She is beyond elegant and haute couture.

    Glad to see Yasmine back in action.

    I have to go to East Village to check out those shoes.
