Prairie Girls

W Magazine goes country with an editorial featuring the prodigious talents of Irish photographer Boo George and four of modelling's most distinctive faces. IMA favourite Suvi Koponen is joined by three relative newcomers Meghan Collison, Juliana Schurig, and Irina Kravchenko for the editorial entitled "Plain Jane". The quartet are styled by Edward Enninful in ensembles from the Fall/Winter 2013 collections of Burberry Prorsum, Chloé, Givenchy, Etro, Prada, and Reed Krakoff. The editorial meanwhile marks George's photographic debut for the prestigious publication after having recently won the Shot, a competition sponsored by the International Centre of Photography and W Magazine to identify the new generation of great fashion photographers. George, a former assistant to Bruce Weber, has been steadily building his profile with recent editorial exposure in Love Magazine, Teen Vogue, i-D, and the British, Australian, and Japanese versions of Vogue. Stefano Tonchi editor-in-chief of W describes George work as displaying "great authenticity and tons of attitude" while the iconic Polly Mellen adds, "His pictures have a haunting quality that makes me want to see more."
