funny how these things work

Anna_voguepar0506>> Speaking of Mario Testino... and Vogue... the May 2006 Cover for Vogue Paris has shown up, looking like an eighties Cindy Crawford throwback.  Meet Anna Mariya Urazhevskaya (or just Anna Mariya), who you will also be seeing in upcoming Blumarine and Kenzo ad campaigns.  I have to say, I'm not usually a fan of close-ups, but if I'm going to be looking at someone's face this close on a cover, it might as well be Anna Mariya's.  Yeah, it's not my favorite cover ever, but it will do -- we have to pick our battles, right?
