As frockwriter reported in November, an additional eight models are due to feature alongside Katie Holmes in Miu Miu’s SS09 campaign, including Australia’s new modelling supernova Myf Shepherd. There is no sign of Shepherd, or anyone else, in the first Miu Miu image. While we are waiting to see the rest of the campaign, here is Shepherd, meanwhile, on her very first international cover: the February edition of RUSSH Japan. And frockwriter wonders if perhaps RUSSH might not be the only international glossy to have been thinking along Myf lines for an upcoming cover.
As we also revealed on November 28, Shepherd recently shot editorial for the German and Paris editions of Vogue. The German Vogue editorial is already out in the February edition.
As many may already be aware, the February edition of Paris Vogue is entirely dedicated to Dutch supermod Lara Stone.
Last week, on his personal blog The Imagist, models.com co-founder Wayne Sterling left this tantalising teaser about the March edition of the magazine. Sterling, presumably, has some advance intel.
The March edition is due to showcase, noted Sterling - and frockwriter assumes he was referring to the cover, a:
“haute fresh new face striking a stark but elegant pose. A new generation star is born. Trust”.
If you’re thinking there is no precedent for a totally new international, nay Australian, model scoring the cover of an international Vogue title, think again.
In June 2007, just two months after her first spectacular international show season, Shepherd’s Chic Management/Next stablemate Catherine McNeil made the cover of Paris Vogue.
Although currently on holiday, Shepherd's Australian agent, Kathy Ward, was uncharacteristically incommunicado when frockwriter attempted to check overnight.
