Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Gets Axed
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been cancelled entirely. One of the Angels, Shanina Shaik, shared that the show will not take place this year, due to ‘branding reasons’. “Unfortunately, the Victoria’s Secret show won’t be happening this year,” she said. “They’re trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show.” Last year, the show faced its worst rating on record and had been tarnished with several controversies.
Claudia Schiffer and Stephanie Seymour on the Cover of Vogue
Claudia Schiffer and Stephanie Seymour are the newest faces of Vogue Italia. The models took their own self-portraits in a double spread. The images are a tribute to Helmut Newton’s work but from a female perspective. “When you are photographing women such as Stephanie and Claudia, who are literally like the walking lexicons of fashion gesture in photography, there are things they will and will not do,” explained Vogue photographer, Collier Schorr. “There’s not one thing that you see in these photographs that Claudia didn’t want to do — if she didn’t want to do it, she changed it.”

SHE IS BACK ✨ CLAUDIA BY CLAUDIA Our August Issue features @claudiaschiffer in @ysl photographed by @collierschorrstudio styled by @vanessareidofficial. On Newsstands August 6th! “Because of who I am and who they are, I think these shoots are about women’s acknowledgement of their own sexuality, and is very different to the representation of desire, which is always connected to the maker of the picture. I think this was about Claudia, Stephanie’s and my relationships with our sexualities and bodies, and about being seen as older women.” #CollierSchorr See more via link in bio.
