V has always loved to feature the moment’s hottest catwalkers inside their pages, but for the first time in years fresh faces are truly the stars of the show. With 2011′s top girls headlining the whole issue V74 serves to encapsulate a moment within the industry. It’s been a long while since magazines have embraced models as viable cover options: given the omnipresent images of actresses, musicians and Kardashians on American mags of late, it is refreshing to see a model staring back at you. CandiceJoanLindseyBambi, Sui HeDaphne,Saskia and Hanaa are the stars of today and the mix of distinctive faces says a lot about the current mood. Now is the time for individuality: gone are the days of cookie cutter girls who couldn’t resonate with the public. The new breed of fashion stars are characterized by their uniqueness.
Presenting an exclusive preview of V 74 / the model issue, with a behind-the-scenes video of the cover shoot – shot by Terry Richardson and styled by Carine Roitfeld, a never before seen preview of the new Inez and Vinoodh major retrospective book “Pretty Much Everything” (coming out in December) and the powerhouse feature once again taping New York’s best agencies with contributions from DNA, Next, Ford, Women, Supreme and IMG showcasing their girls and boys at their most beautiful. View the hot off the presses images – only in MDX.
V 74 will be on newsstands November 8 2011 – for more V please go to or on Twitter @vmagazine
