Eschewing its usual — and stunning — celebrity portraits, V Magazine, for the first time in two years, features models on its cover. Their December issue, styled by the one and only Carine Roitfeld and lensed by the one and only Terry Richardson, stars Sui He — who I am kind of obsessed with right now — and Hanaa Ben Abdesslem; Candice Swanepoel and Joan Smalls; Daphne Groeneveld and Saskia de Brauw; and Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Lindsey Wixson.
“It’s a big moment of change in fashion,” Roitfeld said of the covers. “In some cases, you feel like it’s the end of an era. I have been feeling this with cover subjects, and especially models. These eight girls are unique, not one is like the other. Candice is the only blonde and blue-eyed of this new generation of supermodels. Joan is black, Sui He is Asian, Hanna is North African. It’s their diversity that makes each of them, to me, truly modern. They bring a new energy to fashion.”
The issue hits news stands November 8th and on Sunday Richardson, Smalls, Swanepoel, He and Northwood-Blyth will host a Halloween party in celebration at noted homosexual nightclub, Escuelita. [WWD]
