The Shape Issue

March 15, 2009

US Vogue is changing, remember it’s only a year ago when we were greeted with that Gisele and Lebron James cover?

Now, The Shape Issue 2009 review:

‘The Deep End” 
Daria Werbowy ph by Mert & Marcus

This is only the fourth time Mert & Marcus have ever shot for US Vogue, the last full editorial they did for them was way back in March 2004, so it’s been five years in the waiting. 






“Fit to a T”
Natasha Poly ph by Patrick and Victor Demarchelier

Natasha’s second ever solo editorial for US Vogue (in their signature shock/dazed/excited expresssions) , and if I am not wrong, Victor’s first time working for Vogue. 






“Laid Bare”
Karlie Kloss ph by Raymond Meier

Also Karlie’s first solo editorial for US Vogue.





“Perk & Work”
Edita Vilkeviciute ph by Mario Testino

Edita’s second feature at US Vogue 



“Iron Maiden”

Article on Doutzen Kroes  and her workouts



“Fierce creature”

Beyonce ph by Mario Testino

    No offense, but Beyonce does not deserve to be on the Cover of VOGUE! She was just chosen so that they could possibly sell more copies.

    yo. beyonce’s got style, talent, personality and heart. seriously, what more can you ask for in a cover subject? plus she’s got curves, not just sickly stick ‘shape.’

    mad for the daria ed. perhaps it’s because it
    just ever so slightly reminiscent of this awesome Inez and Vinoodh ed:

    shape issue? apart from beyonce all the models used are TINY… they’re only representing one body type, the body type that most of us don’t have.

    OMG this issue is… great. Well, not really great, but acceptable at least. Anna hasn’t done something like this in a while, I’m so happy to se Vogue US recovering!
