W is for WOW!

W Magazine delivers a bumper issue that lives up to the hype surrounding the all important much ballyhooed September issues. Photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott weave a magical spell over proceedings with a visual tour de force featuring a stellar cast including Karen Elson, Guinevere Van Seenus, Catherine McNeil, Cara Delevingne, Maggie Maurer, and Zlata Mangafic. The cast of stoic beauties brave the elements adorned with ceremonial face paint courtesy of make-up artist Yadim and kitted out in spirited looks from the Fall/Winter 2013 collections of Celine, Maison Martin Margiela, Proenza Schouler, and Saint Laurent amongst others. Fashion and style director Edward Enninful combines grunge and vintage glamour with the odd black swan and faithful German Shepherd thrown in as props to imbue the editorial with its back-to-basics (and to nature) ethos. The inspired assemblage of iconic models Guinevere Van Seenus and Karen Elson, comeback kid Catherine McNeil, the ubiquitous Cara Delevingne, and IMG red hot newcomers Maggie Maurer and Zlata Mangafic provides the perfect cast of characters for Enninful's whimsical quest towards an ephemeral state of nirvana.
