Where all things beautiful collide

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is the reason celebrities from film and music are on every magazine cover well beyond Vogue, but even she knows that models are the true fashion stars.  From the runways they walk to the campaigns they are photographed for, they are the hardest working people in fashion…well, besides everyone else that designs and makes the clothes they model!  With the September issue (the biggest of the year) hitting newsstands, Vogue.com took a look back at the covers that feature the supermodels of the moment, and boy has it changed!  It’s funny to me as I look at the fresh 20 something faces on the September 2014 cover compared to the “supers” of the 90’s like Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer at how much older the 90’s girls looked, even though they were probably the same age!  They were all beautiful no matter the decade, it’s just interesting how things have progressed in areas like hair and makeup.  I’m absolutely in love with Mario Testino’s cover featuring Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Karlie Kloss, and more on another two pullout panels.  They look effortless in the fall season’s best dresses, including custom ones for Vogue like Kloss’s shimmery silver Calvin Klein Collection dress.  I’m so happy to have these lovely ladies on the cover, and especially with my favorite photographer, Testino, behind the lense.  Bring on fall!!
