The Model as a Muse

I LOVE fashion editorials but its not just the clothes that make them intriguing...it's the model too. Over the years I've had a regular subscription to Vogue and occasionally I buy ELLE and US imports like Nylon, Teen Vogue and American Vogue (which is not nealy as good as British Vogue tbh) so I've become familar with a a few faces. Anyway there are some models who are chameleons and are one minute a 40's screen siren exhaling plumes of smoke from a long cigarette holder and the next they're a grungy, leather-clad beauty queen smashing the shit out of a fender; then there are the models who embody a certain feature or look (kind of like Derek Zoolander-but in a good way). Here are some of my favourites...

Lara Stone:
How many models can make gap-toothed sexy?

Agyness Deyn:
A Northern Angel

Karlie Kloss:
Those eyebrows, those cheekbones, that smile- I LOVE Karlie

Jessica Stam:
Amazing curves and a portrait face

Natalia Vodianova:
A Dollface. A total Russian doll.

Jourdan Dunn:
How many people can look THAT elegant on a bus?

Daria Werbowy:
limb-y, athletic and killer cheekbones

Sasha Pivovorova:
Gemma Ward look-a-like with an upside-down smile

Rosie Huntington-Whitely:

An English Rose with Bee Stung lips
