Coffee & Cigarettes - Vogue Italia July 2014

Vogue Italia embraces cafe culture for its July 2014 issue with an A-list cast of female and male modelling talent going tete-a-tete over coffee and cigarettes before Steven Meisel's prying lens. Models of the moment Edie Campbell, Amanda Murphy, Lexi Boling, Julia Nobis, Anna Ewers, Meghan Collison, Mariana Santana, and Vanessa Moody are paired up with R.J. King, David Flinn, Geron McKinley, Dorian Reeves, and Yuri Pleskin for the intensely moody editorial. Stylist Karl Templer goes retro for "Every time we meet you make me feel so incomplete..." decking out the cast of models in 60s Mod-inspired pieces from the collections of Prada, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, and Valentino amongst others. Hairstylist Guido Palau and make-up artist Pat McGrath complete the picture with slick centre-parted hair, over-sized bangs, frosted lips, and smoky eyes. Standing out amongst such an illustrious cast of models is no easy feat but one which newcomers Mariana Santana, Vanessa Moody, and Anna Ewers handle with aplomb. Indigenous Brasilian beauty Santana sultry dark features and wide-eyed innocence sear through Meisel's lens with a scorching intensity. Vanessa Moody's snap challenging gaze and tempestuous pout bring an element of surprise to the cast with the American making her Vogue Italia debut. Moody is a marked woman having opened for Alexander Wang and Balenciaga at the Fall/Winter 2014 collections, and more recently for Valentino Couture Fall/Winter 2014. Last but by no means least, Brigit Bardot look-a-like Anna Ewers is perfectly cast bringing a kittenish sex appeal and devil-may-care look of indifference that encapsulate the essence of the free-spirited 60s.
