American Pride

V Magazine recruits two generations of models for its Summer Americana themed issue showcasing the best in American modelling talent. Industry icons Carol Alt, Christie Brinkley and Elaine Irwin, join current reigning symbols of American beauty Karlie Kloss, Arizona Muse and Dree Hemingway in an editorial entitled "American Idols." With photography by Sharif Hamza and styling by Tom Van Dorpe, the models look sublime in elegant ensembles from industry stalwarts Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs. Brinkley, Alt and Irwin look simply stellar alongside their younger counterparts, demonstrating that beauty at any age has relevance in the often times youth-obsessed arena of modelling.

  1. THIS is what is supposed to be 'the best' of the USA? The older models look like plastic barbies and the younger ones clearly need to gain some weight. Plus this shoot seems to have only white girls? Huh?

    Shame on V magazine.
