Always pushing boundaries with fashion, whether it was the latest phenomenon in social media, war or the recession; Vogue Italia never shies away from pushing buttons, and always staying ahead of the crowd. Causing global news worthy controversy in their latest August 2010 issue, Vogue Italia depicts the atrocious oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, in a beautifully conveyed editorial that is both extreme and heartbreaking. Titled “Water & Oil” by celebrated photographer by Steven Meisel, and styled by Karl Templer. Starring supermodel Kristen McMenamy; covered in oil, waste and the best of Fall/Winter designs.
Kristen McMenamy is wearing Alexander McQueen, Prada, Haider Ackermann, Dior, Azzedine Alaïa, Hussein Chalayan, Miu Miu, Donna Karan Collection, Calvin Klein Collection, Dolce&Gabbana, Alexander Wang, Ann Demeulemeester and John Richmond.
