How old is she now? 47?
Her face has been so re-touched on this cover, she looks 30 years younger.
She's 45. Not really a big fan of her, but I thought the cover and editorial were pretty powerful. Knowing Vogue Italia and Meisel, it was obviously to stir up some controversy, but I really appreciate the message it conveys. One of Vogue Italia's most striking cover/ed of 2011 IMO.
What message? I'm sorry, but if the use older models and then photoshop them like crazy, i don't think it's much more than a publicity stunt.
I much prefer "The Naked Truth" editorial by Peter Lindbergh for German Vogue June 2012. Meisel is great but Lindberghs shots are more honest in my opinion.
Nadja Auermann by Lindbergh
The message of the cover/editorial was about the tragic oil spill a few years ago, not about photoshopping old ladies to make them more beautiful. It was Meisel's interpretation of the dying, oiled animals as a result of the Deepwater Horizon explosion's environmental impact. I thought the photographs made a very strong point about a serious issue.
That is the message of the cover?
I would have never guessed that. But considering how re-touched her face is she looks like a dead fish.
Maybe I should've posted the main editorial that went with the cover:
And 2 more photo links since I'm at the 10 pic/post limit:
Allright, i get your point. It is a really powerful editorial, but i think they should have taken one of the more drastic shots for the cover to make a statement.
Hmm. It's very powerful photography, yes ...
... but it's not exactly Vogue.

I get a very Tilda Swinton vibe from some of these.
Sorry for bumping this thread but she opened the Valentino show yesterday and looking back, I am amazed by the editorials that are posted in the earlier posts. The one by Tim Walker has been a longtime favorite of mine
