Turn of the Cheek

I finally got my mitts today on the premier issue of CR Fashion Book and all I can say is that Carine Roitfeld has not disappointed. The book-a-zine is literally chock-a-block with stunning visuals featuring top models from the past, present and foreseeable future. A highlight of the issue is a dual editorial entitled "Cosmotropolis" & "Electrapolitan" starring the freshest faces in fashion captured by photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino. Several of my favourite newcomers, many of which I met during New York Fashion Week, blow this editorial completely out of the park. The eclectic and diverse line-up could well pass for a United Nations Summit of Modelling, with New Zealander Anmari Botha, Brasilian Daniela Braga, Argentine Magda Laguinge, true Brit Cara Delevingne, Dutchies Stef Van der Laan, Ynre Stiekema and Marte Mei Van Haaster, Sudanese Grace Bol, German Kati Nescher, French beauties Marie Piovesan and Cora Emmanuel, Chinese sensation Xiao Wen Ju, and last but not least all-American Ava Smith, all posing in the season's finest fashions. Roitfeld may have been usurped by Emmanuelle Alt as Editor-in-Chief at Paris Vogue, however judging by her CR Fashion Book exploits, the saying "Success is the best form of Revenge" never held so true.
