Daphne Guinness for Vogue Italia by Steven Meisel

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
One of the most iconic fashion photographers of all time, Steven Meisel easily remains the one photographer with whom all the models aspire to work.

The incredibly sexy shoot for Vogue Italia from June 2011, with cover story shot by photographer Steven Meisel features Ford+’s (that's plus size) Candice Huffine (also featuring Fold+ models Tara Lynn, and Marquita Pring). This ground breaking piece didn't focus on a set “size” or “color” and was a beautiful example of how just how seductive and feminine a +size frame can be. LOVE.

Madonna + Meisel

The creative partnership and deep friendship between pop-diva Madonna and fashion photographer Steven Meisel began nearly three decades ago and has produced a diverse and compelling catalogue of iconic images and magazine spreads.

Erotica // Monday, September 12, 2011
This 20's inspired photoshoot, shot by Steven Meisel for Rolling Stone Magazine (June 1991) and featuring Madonna, is replete with fetishistic, cross-dressing, and lesbian overtones.
