Vogue Italia enlists supermodels Claudia Schiffer and Stephanie Seymour to star on the covers of their August 2019 edition captured by fashion photographer Collier Schorr. In charge of styling was Vanessa Reid, with creative direction from Ferdinando Verderi, and set design by Andy Harman. Beauty is work of hair stylist Brent Lawler and makeup artist Dick Page. With August 2019 covers Italian Vogue Magazine pays tribute to “female gaze”.
“When you are photographing women such as Stephanie and Claudia, who are literally like the walking lexicons of fashion gesture in photography, there are things they will and will not do. There’s not one thing that you see in these photographs that Claudia didn’t want to do – if she didn’t want to do it, she changed it.” – Collier Schorr
“There were several images where I took the picture, obviously after it had been set up by Collier. She is first and foremost an artist, and her angle is very interesting – it comes from a completely different direction – and it has edge.” – Claudia Schiffer
“I see a mother. I see a wife. I see all of the things I need to get done in a day. I see all of my responsibility. As you get older, you have a lot more responsibility as a woman. Taking charge of your life is really important. I try to think about not myself but the people I need to take care of, my children, my friends, my company, my husband. I am never one to think the world revolves around me.” – Stephanie Seymour
