In contrast to the abysmally superficial Anja Rubik by Mario Testino Vogue Paris April editorial published yesterday, photographer Nicolas Guerin presents a less fancy and frankly more beautiful vision of sensuality and restrained lust. In contrast to what postured as heated passion that is devoid of believability by Vogue Paris, models Monica Cima and Hannare Blaaboer are simmering on the back burner of eroticism, styled by Sonia Logerot in splendid lingerie and sumptuous details.
Creative director Sheri Chiu can’t afford the superficial French chateau used by Vogue Paris — a visual statement that is far more about the typically empty sex lives of the very rich than erotic lust. Chiu settes instead for a small space drenched in atmospheric light and moody effects, coupled with clues of wealth but a far greater focus on the lingerie and simmering tension between Monica and Hannare for Revs #14.
