Mad About Vanessa

Steven Meisel has found a new muse in Hungarian newcomer Vanessa Axente with the seventeen year old model securing her third Vogue Italia cover within the space of a year. Axente appears alongside Swedish male model Gustav Swedberg looking thick as thieves as they galavant about in the hippest mod-inspired Spring/Summer 2013 fashions. With their ash blue eyes, snap challenging gaze, and chiselled jawlines, the pair could well pass as siblings. Axente cuts a striking figure with her lanky 181 cm lithe frame, feline features and is proving to be one of the most versatile faces of the current generation of girls capable of morphing from an over the top incarnation of Jerry Hall to a wide-eyed, fresh faced ingenue. I encountered Axente during the Spring/Summer 2013 season and her success comes as no surprise given her engaging personality, extreme professionalism and her commitment to her craft. With two Prada campaigns under her belt both shot by Meisel and a Japan Vogue cover lensed by Patrick Demarchelier, Axente is shaping up to be the go to model for editorials requiring that little added extra.
