Go For Gold

American Vogue gets into the Olympic spirit for its June 2012 issue with an editorial featuring supermodel Karlie Kloss and America's elite male athletes. It seems only fitting that Kloss is paired up with the Olympic sportsmen given that models themselves are often likened to athletes due to the intense scrutiny and physical requirements imposed on them by the profession. Photographer Annie Leibovitz captures the statuesque Kloss alongside swimmer Ryan Lochte, gymnast Jonathan Horton, track star Ashton Eaton, tennis doubles players Bob and Mike Bryan, and basket-baller Dwayne Wade. Kloss is paired with each of the athletes in dual images consisting of a traditional portrait and the second with the sportsmen in action. Kloss holds her own amidst the imposing bare-chested Olympic hopefuls, displaying a seriousness and intense focus befitting of the occasion.
