oh my, I had no idea our comments can make headlines these days)lol...I am still behind my words, but Andrea, my Dear, I do agree Daphne is gorgeous...and you know how much I am into models and for me those editorials are about the models and Steven Meisel always loved the models...he gets inspired by models...the photographers are mostly into the models and not the clothes...the clothes are just a part of the job, but the real inspiration comes from the people on the photo...and sometimes I just do not get it how picks so many girls I do not like...sometimes they start to row on me, but most of the time they are a fading one issue of It vogue sensation...Italian Vogue is the right space for edgy editorials and some models can be in Vogue only there...on those 1 time edgy shoots by Meisel who somehow manages to make them look interesting. Another "problem" is the styling of the most mail editorials of It Vogue these days...even as one of the greatest Gisele fans, I did not like the December editorial with Gisele.

Here's the applicable part of the article, that tarsha linked to at fashionologie.com , above ... just don't want to loose it when they take it down:

Quote:
>> Franca Sozzani recently explained why Steven Meisel has shot every Vogue Italia cover since 1988:

"I needed to have a consistent, recognizable look to every cover. My idea was that even if you took the word “Italia” off, you know what Vogue Italia is. Many magazines don’t seem to have a connection between one cover and the next, and it becomes hard to tell them apart." ....... [Models.com]
I have heard this said of another Editor (Anna Wintour) from her own staff ... that certain photographers are chosen because they want a consistent look .... the editor knows what to expect.

Of course, that makes it difficult if Meisel wants to change his style ...... but then, I"m sure he's paid plenty to keep his style consistent and probably doesn't mind that much.

fantastic editorial indeed, but i think this one deserved at least 10 pages+, they could have done a retrospective for 10 years with al the major looks.
well i'm still happy with the result though.

Alexander The Great is such a stunning editorial. Each shot is superb! Although it's sad 'cause it only has 6 pages. But I still like it. Classic Meisel!
