Isabeli Fontana by Vincent Peters for Vogue Germany January 2009

I always like Isabeli.  She always has such presence in front of the camera.  I like how human this editorial makes her seem.  While she’s certainly gorgeous and super sexy, this depicts more sides to her.  She seems very sweet with children and appears comfortable throughout this.  And the chemistry of those couple shots…*exhale*  I love the 5th shot where she’s perched on top of the fence wrapped around him.  The studio shots are a little incongruous with the rest of the editorial, but I enjoy seeing the many sides to Isabeli nonetheless.  Some of these shots are simply stunning (2, 4, 5 + 8 immediately come to mind).  Again, one can really feel Isabeli’s presence.  Lacking in personality and charisma this woman is not.

Isabeli Fontana by Mario Sorrenti

Isabeli Fontana by Mario Sorrenti for Vogue Paris December/January 2007/2008

Absolutely stunning.  I just sit in awe of Isabeli’s beauty and Mario Sorrenti’s photography.  It was difficult to choose a particular shot to feature as this entire editorial is so strong.  On principle, I hate leopard print.  I think it’s garish and overly expressive.  But Isabeli manages to make it classy, even when the clothes are merely draping across some part of her body.  The lighting is fantastic, and the photography just blows me away.  It bears repeating because Mario Sorrenti has totally risen in the ranks of my favorite photographers.  This just solidifies it.

Isabeli plays it perfectly: fey and a tad mysterious, totally drawing me in.  Despite her hair obscuring her face a lot of the time, she’s really able to connect with the viewer in this piece.  Not to mention, the posing is spectacular.   Each one is interesting and well suited to whatever she’s wearing at the moment.  I like how the clothes are worn a little off-kilter and that Isabeli’s a little mussed.

Sometimes, all the elements in an editorial are just a little too perfect and too fantastical.  This is one of the rare cases where I’m not wowed by the concept or some uber amazing accessory/prop.   This editorial is stripped of all theatrics and that makes it a thing of pure beauty.  Fashion at its best; where all that is needed to create magic are the photographer and model.

V Pre-Fall 2010 Covers by Mario Sorrenti

I had already posted Adriana’s cover but here are the rest of the covers by Mario Sorrenti.  Adriana’s is still my favorite.  Considering these covers, no wonder American newsstands are delegating them to the adult section. hahaha Although it makes me wonder when we became such prudes…

Oh and apparently all but Adriana’s have limited-edition scratch off V’s.  As if peoples’ brains haven’t already imploded from the hotness.  You can order them from V‘s site.

Wicked Isabeli

Isabeli Fontana by Terry Tsiolis for Muse #22

Hellooooo gorgeous.  While the Gisele editorial is my favorite for this issue (I’m still waiting for better quality images of that one), it’s undeniable that Isabeli has the best cover.  She’s hot.  Simple as that.  I’m getting a little sick of beach shoots since it’s summer and every single publication has one.  However, I can’t help but keep this one anyway.  Isabeli lounges and rolls around in the sand looking like the bombshell she is.  That woman covered in sand is a wonderful sight.  Absolutely hot and sensual.

L’heure Bleue

Isabeli Fontana by Mikael Jansson for Vogue Paris June/July 2010

This blue is absolutely fantastic.  It’s a good way to show a seaside shoot without being overdone.  The men in scuba gear in the background kind of distract me though.  They’re kinda superfluous.   I like how Vogue Paris manages to do a non-clichéd seaside summer shoot.  Carine always did know how bring some edge to something ordinary.   I love seeing the spectrum of blue as it fades into a vibrant turquoise as well.  Teal/turquoise is my favorite color.  And this is a wonderful showcase of a that color scheme.

Isabeli Fontana by Sølve Sundsbø

Leather, greased up skin, and smudgy makeup?  I’m totally in.  What a positively sinful editorial.  It knew how to get me hook, line, and sinker.  Sølve Sundsbø normally shoots with a more romantic style, but I love the edgy sexiness to this shoot.  Isabeli Fontana is an excellent model for this and she keeps things interesting by drawing the eye in many different ways.  In some ways, some of the black and white shots remind me of Jac’s piece for Numero a little while back.
