Supermodel on the cover? Check. Steven Meisel? Check. We’ll race you down to the newsstand for a copy of W Magazine‘s double June/July 2017 cover featuring Natalia Vodianova. Meisel captured the Russian model’s beauty perfectly throughout W‘s rich and sophisticated studio cover shoot, complete with styling from Edward Enninful. On the cover (below), Natalia wears a Gucci shirt and hat as she shows all the other working models just how it’s done.
It was love at first sight for our forum members. “Their best cover in ages,” declared forum member anonid the second the cover came to light.
“I let out a gasp on every image I opened. A perfect throwback to mid 2000s, if there ever was one. It’s a cover/editorial for the ages,” applauded dodencebt.
“OMG this is perfection!” cheered Conbothsides.
Marc10 agreed, “Good ol’ Meisel studio shoot, great styling and Natalia looks amazing. I mean it’s a classic Vogue Italia cover story printed somewhere else.”
Miss Dalloway loved what she saw too, writing, “Sublime, the cover and ed are perfection. Always love seeing Natalia back on a major cover, and while I think W has not been worth the cheap paper it’s printed on, this is wonderful. Almost like the old W!
“Good old classic Meisel. I love the movement and energy in each shot and Natalia certainly delivered!” applauded Style Savvy.
“Classic Meisel! No one could do this type of studio shoot like him! Amazing indeed!” praised a more than satisfied Starry.
“You can never go wrong with a classic Meisel studio story. Love every single shot, this is glorious!” Nepenthes expressed.
