On Thursday, Vogue unveiled its September 2021 edition with a bevy of supermodels, including Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber.
But instead of in an exotic location (undoubtedly difficult to move in a pandemic) or an expensive studio To take photos, the high gloss decided to keep things closer to home and instead photographed the catwalks in Vogue’s One World Trade Center offices.
With models standing between cubicles, clothes racks and even the Magazines, the cover shoot seems to come straight from “The Devil Wears Prada”. or maybe the 2009 documentary “The September Issue”.
Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond leaves the office of editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, flanked by her assistant duo, while model Anok Yai sits on a desk in Tom Ford .
Wintour herself makes a cameo on a computer screen, which may suggest that Condé’s Artistic Director spent a lot of time on Zoom calls.
The timing of the photo shoot is a bit ironic – ??? ? Earlier this week, Condé Nast gave in to a month-long battle with WTC landlords and agreed to repay nearly $ 10 million of overdue rent. (Maybe they are just trying to make the most of their space in the downtown skyscraper?)
Also at the top of the September issue are Ariel Nicholson, the magazine’s first transgender cover star, along with Sherry Shi, Precious Lee and the history-steeped Sports Illustrated swimsuit beauty Yumi Nu.
In the accompanying article, author Maya Singer described the changing modeling industry and wrote about « tectonic shifts » in today’s cast of catwalks, especially with regard to diversity and inclusivity. She also described a new class of models who express their personal opinions more openly and stand up for their personality, not just their looks.
« When casting, the question is always: » Can they wear the clothes? Designer Christopher John Rogers told Vogue. â € œBut that means something different than before. It’s not about a certain look or even a certain identity that someone represents – ???? They embrace a model of what it does as part of who it is. Your story becomes part of the imagination.â ????
Gerber, 19, noted that mom Cindy Crawford “always had a lot to say” – she just didn’t have Instagram.
