Prada Spring/Summer 2013 Ad Campaign | Various Models by Steven Meisel

The Prada Spring/Summer 2013 ad campaign unveils a mouth-watering cast of veteran and up-and-coming models shot by Steven Meisel. Amber Valletta, Raquel Zimmermann, Saskia De Brauw, Sasha Pivovarova, Eva Herzigova, and Kirsten Owen make up the somewhat surprising cast of heavyweights while Sung Hee Kim, Irene Hiemstra, Irina Kravchenko, Vanessa Axente, and Prada worldwide exclusive for Spring/Summer 2013, Maartje Verhoef –who opened the show– make up the list of exciting newcomers.

“Flowers are a recurring motif: there is nothing girly or ostentatious about these blooms or these women; full-length shots are paired with cropped images, accentuating the contrasting characteristics of these eleven eclectic and iconic models.”

A relatively different take from its previous ad campaigns, this dynamic cast of models do take the attention off the clothes which although iconic in their own right, felt a tad less wearable and trend-setting than its previous collections of late. This concept of “contrasting characteristics” also resulted in 20 pairings (images) with repeat shots that felt slightly overdone but still, Amber Valletta, Sasha Pivovarova, who is slowly edging her way back into the scene post-pregnancy, Vanessa Axente, Irene Hiemstra, and Maartje Verhoef were draws for me.

Vogue Paris October 2011 | Sasha Pivavorova, Anja Rubik

Vogue Paris October 2011 cover, Sasha Pivavorova, Mert & Marcus, Emmanuelle Alt

Sasha Pivavorova covers the Vogue Paris October 2011 issue in what I must say is Emmanuelle Alt’s best issue ever since her first Vogue Paris issue in April 2011 as editor-in-chief. The cover editorial, titled Fatale features both Sasha Pivavorova and Anja Rubik in a daring display of nudity that is so Vogue Paris. Lensed by Mert and Marcus and styled by Emmanuelle Alt, Anja Rubik and Sasha Pivavorova’s commanding presence in each of the photos coupled with sensual hints make for a stunning and stimulating editorial. Check out the full Vogue Paris October 2011 cover editorial featuring Sasha Pivavorova and Anja Rubik below.

Straight out of a dream, the Boudoir video is surreal and romantic and Sasha’s makeup is stunning. The Giorgio Armani Fall/Winter 2011/2012 Boudoir collection will be out on 6 October. Till then, it’s back to Fashion Week.

Sasha Pivovarova by Hedi Slimane | Vogue Japan August 2011

Hedi Slimane photographed Sasha Pivovarova for an editorial spread titled Tough Love for Vogue Japan August 2011, styled by Mika Mizutani. Characteristic of Hedi Slimane, Sasha Pivovarova was shot in mostly black and white imagery donning soon-to-be-released Fall 2011 collections from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Azzedine Alaia, Gucci, Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, Balenciaga and Haider Ackermann among others.

I don’t know if I will ever get bored with Hedi Slimane’s style and his mostly blonde subjects like Sasha Pivovarova here. Till then, while we wait for his return to fashion design, let’s indulge for now, shall we?
