It’s doubtful any other model of her generation will ever reach the same level as Vanessa Axente in terms of exclusivity and blue chip work. Like no other model in the last few years, Vanessa has racked up work with only the best photographers and clients. Her latest coup is a new fragrance campaign for the scent ‘Endless Euphoria’ by Calvin Klein, shot by Steven Meisel. Fans of the Hungarian model were pleased not just with the fact that Vanessa landed the campaign but also with how the image turned out.
“What an absolutely stunning shot, can't wait to see that face plastered everywhere, one of my favorite campaign shots of her ever,” posted teaars.
And Nepenthes swooned, “Congratulations, Vanessa!! I absolutely love that shot. She looks like a nymph; so ethereal! Looking forward to more shots!”
However, even though there is usually little dispute about the quality of Vanessa’s work, many forum members did not add to the praise found in the model’s tFS thread.
“She's not convincing here. Natalia's the ultimate Euphoria girl for me, and this coming from someone who's indifferent towards her,” shared Flashbang.
Nymphaea agreed. “Indeed not convincing, her right eyebrow is too much hauled up, doesn't look right. Also the colors on her face don't feel natural,” she wrote.
I am personally not the biggest fan of Vanessa’s look, but this campaign made me go “Wow!” There is not really much worth criticizing here because it’s simply a great image, if you ask me. Keep it up, Vanessa!
