Steven Meisel Photographs Lexi Boling for Vogue Italia’s May Cover (Forum Buzz)

Model of the moment and current Prada face, Lexi Boling, has landed Vogue Italia's May cover. The American model has become a regular choice for Steven Meisel, who also shot Lexi for Prada's recent accessories campaign. For Italian Vogue's latest, Boling is posing against a dark background, with the focus very much on her beauty and the styling of her hair. It's no wonder Meisel shot a close-up of this girl, after Guido worked his magic on her hair and Pat McGrath did the makeup for this 'look of the moment' shoot. Karl Templer styled Lexi in a top from Tod's.

"What is this, an outtake from Prada Pre-Fall campaign?" questioned Zorka.

"Looks like a boring Prada image," wrote Bruce7Lee.

Nymphaea thought the cover resembled a past Vogue Italia cover: "Nice simple cover, same vibe as Doutzen's VI cover but a tad more modern."

"Finally! I find this cover sooo gorgeous, but that might be all because of Lexi," commented anlabe32.

Miss Dalloway was also enthusiastic and wrote, "Simple but sooo lovely, I adore this! And amazing to see Lexi get a cover on her own, she rocked the runway season!"

So, there are mixed reactions from our forum members and I feel the same. This does look like it was taken just moments after the recent Prada campaign. On the other hand, I'm such a sucker for anything shot in a studio–especially when it's been photographed by Steven Meisel.
