Vogue US May 09′
Liya Kebede, Natalia Vodianova both on their third Vogue US covers if I remember correctly, each already nabbed a solo cover before. Anna Jagodzinska, only model not from IMG, DNA or Women (she’s from Next. ETA: take note Caroline Trentini just switched from Marilyn to IMG) to make the cover. Notice how they photoshopped her nose… she looks a little like Valentina (aka the Ralph Lauren girl). Ok maybe I have bad face id skills. She’s relatively lesser known compared to some others at Vogue but to be on the front page is a big deal so let’s celebrate the fact.
Natasha Poly, Jourdan Dunn (youngest here), Lara Stone— all making their Vogue US cover debuts. For Lara, first time appearing in the magazine, right on the cover. It’s only May, she’s been having a very Vogue-ful year (the Parisian counterpart, that Feb issue), you go girl.
It’s just nine spots, but so precious. Don’t say who deserved to be in or out, it’s a pretty perfect mix of new+old, everyone of them is on the cover for a good reason. The cover shot in general is beautiful, a little retro, and clean, really focusing on their faces this time.
Now take a trip down to previous multi-models covers:
I remember reading that 06 issue, at 832 pages it is gigantic.
