Bella Hadid and Irina Shayk are Flawless for Vogue Japan
Bella Hadid Lands the September Cover of Vogue Japan. Inside the Issue Irina Shaynk Offers a Sizzling September Editorial Spread.
Vogue Japan heats up for their upcoming September 2016 issue. The magazine features rising American model, Bella Hadid on the cover. This is the second time Hadid has graced an international cover of Vogue. Her previous feature was with Turkish Vogue for the May issue.
Hadid graces the Vogue Japan cover in a black, floor-length, Giorgio Armani design from the FW16 collection. A one-shouldered gown dressed the model, accompanied by a wide, gold choker and equally simplistic gold bracelet. With a slicked back mane and dark lip, the cover result produced a dark, moody aesthetic that was as equally dramatic as it was intoxicating.
Critics were not expecting an entirely black styled fashion for the cover of Vogue Japan.
As a result, the September issue was perceived as quite refreshing in its styling, minimalistic in its positioning, but nevertheless, powerfully captivating. Photographer Giampaolo Sgura shot the cover.
In The Sun Of Italy, a story also photographed by Giampaolo Sgura meets the pages of Vogue Japan’s September edition. The location is Masseria Torre Coccaro, set in Puglia, Italy. Russian beauty, Irina Shayk was featured in the Pugliese influenced editorial. Anna Dello Russo styled the story, with makeup by Jessica Nedza, and hair by Andrew Guida.
