Perfect Match

Nineties supermodels Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta reunite for the first time in over a decade for the January 2012 issue of American Vogue. Photographer Steven Klein's stunning imagery illustrates why Harlow and Valletta remain today two of the most compelling faces in fashion. The celebrated duo emerged on the modelling scene in the early nineties riding on the wave of the success of the original supers and were photographed together habitually by the likes of Steven Meisel, Paolo Roversi and Patrick Demarchelier for US Harpers Bazaar and the British, Italian and American editions of Vogue. Valetta's blonde, sunny disposition and earthy, ethereal-like beauty were the perfect antithesis to Harlow's exotic, mysterious gypsy-like allure. The pair would become steadfast best friends and their contrasting beauty and personalities served as a source of inspiration for a generation of photographers, designers and stylists.
