For Interview Magazine’s September 2013 issue, Craig McDean photographes some of today’s coolest Models: Karlie Kloss, Maria Bradley, Ashleigh Good, Amanda Murphy, Hanne Gaby, Lisa Verberght, Charlotte Free, Julia Nobis, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Meghan Collison, and Liu Wen, Kasia Struss, Sasha Pivovarova, Iselin Steiro, Guinevere Van Seenus who were missing, Sadly from the Editoral. But each of the models featured has their own shot of them showing off their own style, wearing the Coolest designs of the Fall 2013 season. From brands like: Gucci, Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Maison Martin Marigela, and Isabel Marant.
Supermodels: Sasha Pivovarova, Doutzen Kroes, and Freja Beha Erichsen are the three Newest Industry Icons.
Aspiring models everywhere try to make it to become the next big Kate Moss or Gisele, each year. But only a few get to make it, even into models.com coveted Top 50 Models, Industry Icons, The Money Girls, and very few make it into The Supers. Models.com has officially changed up their rankings, as they annually do in September and in February. Who made it?
Well a dream for many models someday is to graduate from the Top 50 Models to the Industry Icons, and maybe even someday down the road to The Supers. Well the three new Industry Icons, who are now joining a coveted list of Supermodels including Natalia Voldinova, Coco Rocha, Stella Tenant and Karolina Kurkova. One of which is Victoria’s Secret Angel, and one of my all-time favorite models, Doutzen Kroes. Besides her Victoria’s Secret Angel contract, Kroes just seems to score more and more new contracts daily, one of which was for fronting Emilio Pucci’s Fall 2013 campaign. The second is Sasha Pivovarova, after ending her runway career in 2011, focusing more on her art. And then getting married and having her first child, a daughter in May of 2012. Sasha has definitely deserved a coveted spot as an Industry Icon. Being the face of Prada for many years now, and still having many contracts underway, a la Proenza Schouler and Juicy Couture for Fall, and a Saint Laurent for Resort season. Pivovarova has definitely got it all. But the other newest edition to the Industry Icons really excited me, Freja Beha. I have always been such a Freja Beha fan and I think that she really deserves to be an Industry Icon. With her Maybelline Contract, and many Vogue covers (internationally) underway, Beha has definitely graduated from that runway regular, to a more coveted Supermodel.

Before the Chanel runways sent models walking on Crystal, Windmill, Starfish, and Planet dome runways. The models simply walked down the runway looking Chic and Classy the Perfect Chanel, just like at Chanel 2006.
You can watch Chanel’s Full Fall 2006 fashion show, remembering the days before the exotic runways came at Chanel, and when Gemma Ward, Anja Rubik, Vlada Roscalova, Natasha Poly, Freja Beha, Sasha Pivovarova, Natasha Poly, Lily Donaldson, and more filled the runways.
Set in what appears to be an empty floor filled with windows in a building somewhere in New York City, Supermodel and Prada muse Sasha Pivovarova is photographed in black and white, showing off the Dramatic and Sexy Saint Laurent Resort 2014 collection.
Since the collection is photographed in black and white, it seems the many of the colors used were blacks, navy, browns, and maybe even some reds and blues. Pivovarova wears many Short, Sexy black and white dresses in many fabrics like leather and chiffon in many different styles. Each with a little Sexy, Edge added to it like Sexy cutouts around the sleeve, and a studded belt tied around a long flowy chiffon dress. Slimane also designed many leather jacket and short ensembles. The shorts, usually leather, and the top in a Chic black, sheer fabric. Very Dramtic, Sexy and Beautiful and of course, Chic.
