Photoshoot: Karlie Kloss by Greg Kadel for Numéro #129

There has been a lot of talk recently about Karlie Kloss’s December 2011 Vogue Italia shoot.  The buzz turned into outright controversy when the publication decided to pull one of the images from their site.  You can read more about that here.

Under normal circumstances I would likely blog about the controversy but, today at least, I want to focus on a different shoot.  Karlie—who happens to be one of my favorite models—looks absolutely amazing in Numéro #129.  Lensed by Greg Kadel and styled by Elizabeth Sulcer, the images are as raw and gritty as they are luxurious.  Karlie wears a number of different designers throughout the shoot, including Cavalli, McQueen, Pucci and Ferragamo, and each new image seems to be better than the last.  My personal favorite?  The TOM FORD, of course!

I’ll warn you now that this post is picture heavy, but I think it is worth it!

Amazing, right?  I can’t get enough of the clothing and accessories and I love the saturated color. It makes me happy

What do you think?

    I LOVE it! I adore the saturated color too, especially the image with the sprakly blue dress. I had not heard about the controversy around Vogue Italia, certainly interesting.

    I’m with you on those images – they are incredible. The colour is what gets me… vibrant and amazing!

    Yes, I was struck by the Numéro October editorial. Always simply stunning. This shoot is beyond inspiring— most especially for me it’s the bold colours and mere surrounding props, not just the clothing! Ahh, I love it! 🙂

    I’m obsessed with the colors on these photos. The saturation is perfect and the vibrant colors make the model stand out so much.

    Like you I love the saturated color and the textures. The outfits are all so great I can’t even pick a favorite. Great post!
