>> THE MODELIZER —The runways have brought plenty of surprise walkers this week — Iselin Steiro and Natalia Vodianova at Balenciaga, Ana Claudia Michels, Frankie Rayder, and Dewi Driegen at Givenchy . . . and now Naomi Campbell is rumored to be appearing on the Hermes runway on Saturday. [Chic Report]
Lara, Eva, Daria, Agyness, Natasha, Frankie: These are just six out of 15 cover girls for V Magazine's September issue, photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. You think they had a hard time choosing just one?! While others like Naomi Campbell, Anja Rubik, and Christy Turlington also made the cut, the girls below are the most captivating. Lara looks innocent and sexy at the same time; Eva flaunts her flexibility; Daria stares into your soul; Aggy is cute as a button; Natasha's head is sexily tilted like her Gucci fragrance ad; and Frankie is smoldering. Each has its appeal, but which V Magazine September cover girl is most Fab?
>> I don't know what's changed with Frankie Rayder's life lately, but I do know one thing: She's back. Not only is she being lensed for an unnamed September "extravaganza of an editorial," she's also popped up in two major Fall campaigns.
She joins Kate Moss in headlining Stella McCartney's Fall 2008 campaign, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin at Kate's country house in Gloucestershire, England. Meanwhile, she replaces Kate, who was Roberto Cavalli's Spring 2008 campaign girl, in the Cavalli Fall 2008 ads along with Angela Lindvall, Raquel Zimmermann, and Isabeli Fontana.
Maybe we owe the pleasure of seeing Frankie again to Inez and Vinoodh? They also did the Cavalli campaign . . . We'll know for sure if they photographed this mysterious September editorial in which Frankie has been cast.
