Abbey Lee Kershaw, Sasha Pivovarova, Lily Aldridge & Edita Vilkeviciute for Rag & Bone Spring 2011 Campaign

Marcus Wainwright and David Neville were rather brilliant to ask the models to do self-portraits.  This is rather similar to when Steven Meisel had spoofed twitpic back in Vogue Italia‘s December 2009 issue; however, I like the execution of this ad campaign better.  This is charming and oh so very Rag & Bone.  Snapshots of each model’s daily life showcase the translatability of Rag & Bone into real life style; not to mention, it greatly reflects the unassuming down-to-earth feel that Rag & Bone has.  With this, Wainwright and Neville are able to  uniquely and effortlessly convey what a cool yet realistic label they have on their hands.

Abbey Lee Kershaw & Edita Vilkeviciute by Mario Sorrenti for Interview December 2010

Bound to raise more than a few eyebrows, this highly charged, highly erotic bridal showcase for Vera Wang presents a decidedly different take on the the traditional bride and groom.  Not to mention, it’s smoking hot.  Abbey and Edita are two of the hottest models out there; throwing them together is like the ultimate sexual fantasy.  Moreover, this signals the return of classic Interview Magazine with cheeky provocation and pushing of boundaries.  I love the entire thing: the concept, the execution, the model casting, and the styling.  Mario Sorrenti always shoots highly seductive glamorous creative editorials; this is no different.  But above all, Abbey and Edita pull out all the stops and turn up the heat. They truly deliver, making this more believably erotic as opposed to contrived seductiveness.

Edita Vilkeviciute by Camilla Akrans for Numéro #96 September 2008

Edita + Camilla seems to be a popular model/photographer pairing.  I have counted 5 editorials with that pairing in my archives, which is quite a bit for such a transient industry.  In any case, I like it.  While I am not impressed by every editorial with that particular pair (it’s hard to be when they certainly do more than the 5 I have), I think they’re a very good working pair.  The photography to this one, in particular, is stunning.  The lighting just enhances the contrast between black and white.  I love the large presence of the church in the editorial as well; it makes the wide shots really impressive.  It’s great that Edita’s presence remains well felt in the wide shots as well.  There’s hardly a weak shot in the lot.  The shadows Edita creates are really stunning as well.  I love the way she poses.  Shot 3 is a particularly nice example where she’s leaning arms spread with her face upturned.  But my absolutely favorite shot in this editorial is shot 5 where Edita is like a Grecian (or Italian) statue.  Everything about it is just so well done, from the tilt of her head to the flowing semi-transparent sheet draped over her.  I also adore Numéro for its spectacular editorials.  This upholds the standard of excellence.  And here’s to a beautiful partnership.

Edita Vilkeviciute by Camilla Akrans for Numéro #117

This features an unusually blond Edita, but moreover, an un-PhotoShopped Edita.  Brunettes going blond seems to be popular this season (Abbey Lee recently went platinum blonde).  In any case, this is another lovely Camilla Akrans editorial for Numéro.  While I don’t like all of it (, there’s a couple shots that I like: the one above, 6, 7, and 8.  Oh the French.  They don’t sweat the little things: goose-bumps, pores, laugh lines.  And thank God for that.  There’s such a microawareness of that elsewhere that it’s reaching ridiculous levels.  While I love avante-garde pieces, there is no need for obviously airbrushed images of people.  So bravo Numéro.

Edita Vilkeviciute & Anna Maria Jagodzinska by Craig McDean

Edita Vilkeviciute & Anna Maria Jagodzinska by Craig McDean for W February 2009

Eerily fantastic.  There’s something morbid about this despite the lack of gory details.  I can feel an intensity about this that’s takes this to a whole new level.  The dilapidated romanticism of it adds to the haunted abandonment of it all.   There’s something ghostly about this.  I am so feeling all the eerie editorials lately.  Craig McDean is always fantastic.  He brings out the absolute best in his work.

Coral Sand

Mmm ballet on the beach. It makes me dream of summer. Especially with the recent freezing December weather. Not to mention the close ups are simply breathtaking. Edita is a gorgeous model who is very comfortable in her own skin.
