One of the biggest highlight of this issue is well, that Steven Meisel editorial which was dropped from Vogue Italia for being too explicit. W did not pick it up and V grabbed it in the end, Meisel’s debut at V! Sort of…

The racy editorial which is inspired by the British dogging trend isn’t anything near as explicit as Terry Richardson or Mario Sorrenti’s work actually. There is no nudity, but the lighting and the mood is a little kinky or what they called ‘borderline pornographic’. What I like most is the fact that Meisel cast Daul Kim to be in the shoot. What I can remember is that Meisel hardly uses asian models…

    Actually, I’m in love with the editorial. It’s sexual, no question about it, but it’s also beautiful. Does looks kinda “rape” in some shots, but it’s smoothen out with other GORGEOUS pictures of the sky and fields, which made the editorial, well, more interesting!

    On the side note, viewed the beyonce’s editorial with the spring 09 pieces, and am disappointed by how trashy they looked on her.
