This is the cover for Vogue's May issue, which I guess ties in with the Met's Model as Muse exhibit/party malarky. While I can say YAY for not seeing Angelina or Jen or Nicole on the cover, I'm kind of confused as to what "moment", the "Models of the Moment" line may be referring to. Let's break it down shall we?
Liya: I love Liya Kebede, this is true, but let's face it, she is not "of the moment" she was "of the moment" like 9 years ago. Liya is classic now, and while you can't put her in the same category as Kate Moss just yet, she's definitely on another level. 0 points.
Anna Jagodzinska: Who? Totally unremarkable girl. I'm surprised that the most unknown of them all got in the actual cover with 2 major girls. Oh well, I'm sure her agency is very excited for her. + .5 point (hey, at least it's a new face!).
Natalia Vodianova: Seriously? See explanation for Liya. 0 points.
Isabeli Fontana: An old-timer who's kind of making a comeback. + 1 point.
Lara Stone: We're all on a first name basis with Lara's boobs by now. Obvz a winner. +1 point.
Jourdan Dunn: Like FIRE! + 1 point.
Raquel Zimmerman: I actually really really love Raquel. She's been around for a while, but she's clearly having a good run. I'm conflicted about her inclusion because she's in the magazine all the time. Conflicted. + .5 point.
Caroline Trentini: Blaaaah. Anna loves her for some reason. 0 points.
Natasha Poly: Dudez, Poly is awesome. I feel like I never see her in any regular magazines, so I'm super psyched to see her here! She's kind of babelicious. + 1 point.
Take out Liya, Natalia, Caroline and Anna J. and stick in Lakshmi, Iris Strubegger, Eniko Mihalik and my wild card pick, Karlie Kloss. She's really been killing her editorials lately. + 100000 points.
