Glamour Overhaul - Alessandra Ambrosio

American Glamour appears to have undergone a major image overhaul in recent months with an impressive roster of high profile photographers and top tier models gracing its pages. Industry heavy weights Patrick Demarchelier, Tom Munro, Sebastian Kim, Dan Martensen, and Will Davidson have been recruited to photograph leading high fashion models Karolina Kurkova, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss, Grace Mahary, Hilary Rhoda, Kai Newman, Janice Alida, Senait Gidey, and Jessica Miller for the women's lifestyle publication. This month legendary photographer Gilles Bensimon brings his trademark energy, vitality, and healthy body image to American Glamour for the editorial "The Body Project" with supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio acting as his muse. Shot on location in Saint Barth, Ambrosio's spectacular physique and sultry beauty are magnified by the natural elements of the sun, sea, and soothing ocean breezes. The reader is transported back to the halcyon days of Bensimon's tenure as creative director and head photographer at American Elle during the 80s and early 90s. The thirty-three year old Victoria's Secret Angel and high fashion cross-over star is the perfect chameleon under Bensimon's attentive lens morphing from goddess to girl-next-door while wearing bathing suits and beachwear styled by Jillian Davison.
