Anais Mali | Vogue Italia Gennaio 2011 by Damien Neva

There are few better places to find a sprawling thirty-two page editorial than in an issue of Vogue Italia. Whatever the gallery may think about photographer Steven Meisel the simple fact remains that his regular contribution to the Condé Nast monthly from editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani will be a discussion point whether or not it spits oil. And for good reason. Take for example Meisel and fashion editor Karl Templer‘s editorial titled “The Power of Glamour” appearing in the January issue of Vogue Italia that features Ford’s Anais Mali. Drawing inspiration from Yves Saint Laurent‘s 1970s era atelier this story is told through a series of portraits taken at jaunty angles, reflected in mirrors, and flickered over CCTV to give it a certain vérité immediacy. Anais’s opening look, a well-known Louis Vuitton S/S 11 dress, is made look to all the more arresting through its unmediated presentation before a stand-in designer and coterie of white-coated assistants. This is in part what makes the editorial stand out from the stacks and stacks of excellent editorials sitting the desk of the Ford Models Blog, namely to make the familiar unfamiliar. To that end Steven Meisel succeeds and thankfully not without the help of Anais Mali.
