Carine Roitfeld's stint working with V is the partnership that keeps on giving. For the magazine's latest cover shot by Terry Richardson, the former Vogue Paris editor styled Candice Swanaepoel and Joan Smalls; Daphne Groeneveld and Saskia de Brauw; Sui He and Hanaa Ben Abdesslem, and Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Lindsey Wixson. The multi-covers, set to his newsstands on November 8, marks the first time in two years that the magazine has opted for models rather than celebrities.
“It’s a big moment of change in fashion. In some cases, you feel like it’s the end of an era. I have been feeling this with cover subjects, and especially models,” Roitfeld told WWD. “These eight girls are unique, not one is like the other. Candice is the only blonde and blue-eyed of this new generation of supermodels. Joan is black, Sui He is Asian, Hanna is North African. It’s their diversity that makes each of them, to me, truly modern. They bring a new energy to fashion.”
