Power Play - Imaan Hammam

The French word "panoplie" meaning an impressive collection of things serves as the focal point for an editorial starring model of the moment Imaan Hammam in Paris Vogue's May 2014 issue. Photographer Terry Richardson trains his voyeuristic lens on the seventeen year old mixed Moroccan/Egyptian beauty as she grapples with a mannequin in series of power play poses. Hammam is decadently styled by Fashion Editor Marie Chaix in luminous black ensembles with brilliant flashes of red, turquoise green, and glimmering metallics. The Fall/Winter 2014 designs by Burberry Prorsum, Givenchy, Céline, Roberto Cavalli, and Proenza Schouler figure prominently providing the perfect accompaniment to Hammam's intoxicating exotic beauty as she writhes and wrestles with a nude mannequin. Hammam clearly comes out on top having confirmed her status as the newcomer most prescient in the minds of casting directors, designers, and fashion editors. Since causing a stir opening exclusively for Givenchy's Spring/Summer 2014 show, Hammam swiftly followed suit by logging a blistering blue chip trail at the recent Fall/Winter collections courtesy of 27 pristine show bookings. Equally impressive is Hammam's strong editorial presence with back-to-back bookings for American Vogue, and lens time with Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia in addition to this month's stunning Paris Vogue debut.
