What's in the Magazine, Vogue Italia May 2008?

I went to Borders the other day and had a quick browse Italian Vogue May issue. Steven Meisel photographed Eva Mendes, 34-year-old Cuban-American Actress, for the cover. How are the pictures? To be totally honest, I am not actually so sure. Well, Italian love “sex”. Still I felt that I’ve got the wrong magazine somehow. Did I just pick up Esquire? Eva looked very sexy, actually over sexy in some photographs. Don't get me wrong. I like Eva Mendes. She always look great. Some of her pictures in Vogue Italia look great and erotic, but since she’s naturally sexy enough, the others look a bit trying too hard... a bit more “desperate housewife”… or maybe because sex and edginess sell?!

On the other hand, I cannot figure out why similar photos of Kate Moss looked so much more artistically sexy, rather than ... Well, there are different definitions of sexiness.
















I cannot help comparing these pictures with some old editorials of Kate Moss from Vogue and
Numéro Magazines ...

For me the pictures are great inspire for buying new underwear. I love them - and, ok, there's much sex inside this pictures, but I think, it's very erotic but doesn't look cheap.

Yup you are right. Maybe it wasn't meant to be, but it ends up with too much sex. Erotic pictures do generate some interests (sales) for the magazine companies.

I respect the photographers' artistic vision, and the images are very well-executed, but I could live without them personally. Though they're beautiful, they're not my taste.
