Gisele opens up
While Vogue Paris takes a more classic approach – photographers Inez & Vinoodh shoot her in a variety of classic fall looks, including a woolen bouclé jacket by Chanel and luminous 70’s make-up reminiscent of Francesco Scavullo‘s covers for Cosmopolitan – American photographer Roe Etheridge takes a more experimental approach.
Shot in a clean black-and-white tiled bathroom and featuring a selection of Céline, CdG and Kenzo styled by Marie Chaix, self service magazine‘s editorial creates its own whimsical and ultra-modern world. Assorted still life shots with a selection of accessories by Fendi, Carven and Balenciaga complete the story.
In the accompanying interview with fashion director Suzanne Koller, Gisele opens up about her fashion world beginnings as a 14 year-old from rural Brazil, her career-changing shoots with the like of Irving Penn, Steven Meisel and Mario Testino, her first catwalk experiences in London for Alexander McQueen and her own insecurities.
Well, I guess it helps being Gisele to overcome them!
In addition, she recommends some of her favorite books, gives advice on how to reach a healthier and more spiritual lifestyle and tells us about her Luz foundation, helping abused children.
