I have always admired Annie Leibovitz's photographs which are always lovely and poetic. She has an amazing eye for capturing the perfect moment and with the help of post production, it's even better.
This coming February 2013, Vogue US has teamed up with Annie for Storm Troupers. A fashion editorial featuring top models of today. Done with the assistance of fashion editor Tonne Goodman. The photos combine high fashion with the heroes of Hurricane Sandy which has affected New York City and its people. Here are the photos.
Lovely ladies standing on a boat.
From left, Kasia Struss is wearing a Ralph Lauren Collection,
Chanel Iman dons a Vera Wang Bride and
Karlie Kloss is wearing Donna Karan New York.
Note: These models were photographed safely at the North Cove marina in Battery Park City,
under direct Coast Guard supervision.
Arizona Muse rocks them Rag & Bone, while Liu Wen looks comfy in Alexander Wang.
On the other side, Joan Smalls poses Proenza Schouler with the National Guard’s 69th Infantry division which was very helpful in delivering food and water to victims of Hurricane Sandy and keeping a hospital running.
Karlie Kloss looks even taller in Oscar de la Renta.
She is photographed with people from the Con Ed’s East River Generating Station.
The station was flooded on the first day Sandy hits NYC.
Employees were evacuated on rafts that floated on top of parked cars and came back to work the next day.
Now that's dedication.
My fave photo of the bunch.
Liu Wen looks amazing in Michael Kors while Karlie Kloss looks achingly cute in Marc Jacobs.
They are photographed with the the neonatal intensive-care unit at Bellevue and tons of babies.
(too much cuteness!)
Looking every bit a Michael Kors ad.
The Air NYPD walks the runway (helipad?!?)
with Kasia Struss in a wonderful Carolina Herrera and Karlie Kloss in Rodarte.
Come walk with me, er with Chanel Iman in Narciso Rodriguez and Karlie Kloss in Diane von Furstenberg. Walking with them is FDNY. Walk on!
Thank you Vogue, Anna Wintour and Annie Leibovitz! God bless New York City!
See yah later!
