Given the fact that members of theFashionSpot forums cannot get enough of models on the cover of fashion magazines, I thought this week we'd take a look back at another rare model cover for our flashback series. Except this time around, Vogue's model of choice is photographed by herself and isn't surrounded by her peers.
The July 2007 issue of US Vogue has Russian model Natalia Vodianova on the front cover. Photographed by Mario Testino, Natalia wears a Nina Ricci white draped silk organza cocktail dress with crystal detail, looking every bit of the elegant goddess she embodies effortlessly.
For a thin summer issue with only 194 pages, it's surprising how much fashion there is inside. We're treated to fashion stories from David Sims, Mario Testino, Irving Penn and an accessories shoot from Miles Aldridge. The best thing, however, is the selection of models: Sasha Pivovarova, Coco Rocha, Raquel Zimmermann, Caroline Trentini, Iselin Steiro, Natalia Vodianova and Suvi Koponen all lend their expertise to Vogue's pages.
Suvi only has one shot by Craig McDean for an article regarding the glamour of the grown-up season. She is captured against a rich green backdrop whilst wearing a showstopping red Donna Karan dress and her luscious blonde hair styled in Veronica Lake waves. This one photograph is stunning to say the least and is a credit to Suvi's now ever-growing portfolio.
Are you lucky enough to have this issue in your collection? Check out the thread here and don't be afraid to reignite discussion.
Here's Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2014 ad campaign. It was photographed by Domenico Dolce and features models Bianca Balti and Claudia Schiffer posing in a medieval forest setting.
You may notice that Schiffer is pictured looking absolutely insane:
I mean, truly:
Aren't you just a tad concerned?
Like most supermodels, Schiffer doesn't seem to know how to dress appropriately for an enchanted forest, and she seems overly enthusiastic about the attention she's attracting from these skeevy commoners:
Oh no, she's about to eat the apple of sin! Don't do it Claudia; that NEVER goes well for anybody:
I guess the forbidden fruit transformed her into a queen? I'm not familiar with that version of events:
How much clothing does one supermodel need in an enchanted forest? I guess a lot, since there's dirt and filth everywhere but no washing machine:
But why bring so many bags?:
Just days ago at the Cannes Lions International Advertizing Festival, Kanye West dished on some behind-the-scenes happenings at his wedding to Kim Kardashian, particularly about the photo of the pair sharing a kiss that was posted to Instagram (which became the most 'liked' picture in history). West says it took him four days to produce (yes, four days out of their honeymoon over some picture SMH), as Annie Leibovitz abruptly pulled out of photographing the ceremony and West still wanted the pictures to have the shutterbug's trademark filter. “I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity," West offered as an explanation for her marked absence.
Well, Leibovitz's people have come out to respond to West's comments, and it turns out that Annie was never officially commissioned to lens the nuptials. “She would have loved to have taken their wedding portrait and was disappointed it didn’t happen," a rep for Leibovitz explains. Kanye's people say that Leibovitz wasn't even confirmed for the wedding in the first place: “Although Kanye expressed frustration that he was not able to collaborate with Annie Leibovitz at his recent wedding, he is not assigning blame, and is not accusing Annie in any way. Unbeknownst to Kanye, she was never confirmed. Kanye and Annie’s representatives were in negotiations for weeks that were not completed by the time of the wedding,”
Oh really? Sounds like someone is about to lose their job over at Kanye, Inc.!

As we learned on America's Next Top Model, after a certain attractiveness threshold, personality is what really cements a model's success. For proof, look no further than Cara Delevingne.
Delevingne is hardly an unknown quantity, but the vast majority of our favorite models — even those at the top of the field — get only a tiny fraction of her media exposure. That's why we lingered on these YouTube clips of models, which were shared as part of a discussion about fashion interviews on the Livejournal community, Fashin.
Do you enjoy watching top models acting awkwardly and showing their true selves? If so, these are for you:

Who would believe that Cindy Crawford is turning 50 next year? The legendary supermodel is still looking flawless, thanks to her amazing genes and Meaningful Beauty skincare line. In addition to model and beauty boss, Crawford will be adding "published author" to her list of titles, with the announcement that she will be releasing her first book in fall 2015.
The tome, to be published under Rizzoli, will be a coffee table-memoir-type hybrid of a book. Crawford says that it will be image-heavy and contain bits about her career and life. The book is set to be released just before her 50th birthday next year, a milestone age Crawford is trying to embrace: "It’s kind of a way to celebrate turning 50 as opposed to dreading it.”
No word on the title yet, but if the book is to include lots of pictures (vintage and recent) of Crawford, it'll most likely do great.
