If there's ever been a magazine better-equipped to show us what it's like to come up against an utter lack of imagination, it's Interview Russia.
Russia is hardly known for its mild winter climate and yet Interview still thought it would be cool to have two of the world's superest supermodels, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, grace its December cover in the nude. Nothing says "Russian fashion glossy" like gratuitous nudity.
Because Naomi and Kate aren't exactly slouches when it comes to their job and the shoot was lensed by photo dream team Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, the low caliber of the final product is, in a sense, a real accomplishment. I don't know what exactly went wrong, but both women look more wooden than I would have thought possible for two people that built their careers on being expressive. Possible explanations for the horribleness: 1) this concept was doomed from the start and 2) Interview Russia needs to dial down on the airbrushing. Just a thought.
