Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls pay tribute to an era in ‘Ruffled Around the Edges’ by Steven Klein for W Magazine, 11/14. Teetering above the city, these girls know how to show it, with languid limbs that lure us in. Retro revived, (Stylist) Edward Enninful honors a time when, the Models were Super & the Storm was Perfect. Fashion figures with lean looks by Altuzarra, Azzedine Alaïa, Balmain, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Jason Wu, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Narciso Rodriguez, Ralph Lauren, Valentino & Vera Wang. Bronzed beauty comes to be in this body-baring tale of lust and other longings. Makeup Artist, Val Garland, embraces the artistry of the amazon queen with faces that look as if they’ve been carved into creation. Moody colors melt into the skin while gorgeous gams glow in the wind. A coiffed collision ensues, as (Hairstylist) Shay Ashual pumps out the pompadours with a modern mix of vintage & vixen. An evocative take on the art of perspective, these inviting angles make the angel’s legs look like they’ll go on forever. Enjoy the ride in an ode to the 90’s Super Models.
