Meisel recreates the rush, craziness and intensity of the runway and backstage for Vogue Italia‘s January issue with a monster 80-page editorial. While there’s something delightfully ’90s supermodel-era/Unzipped about this sneak peek into backstage hijinks, I can’t help but feel VI’s gotten a bit lazy and gimmicky with their past few main editorials (see their Twitter ed). Nevertheless, some shots are absolutely beautiful and would be awesome standalone pages. I’ve tried to capture the best of the primping, vamping, chair-throwing (Sessilee-Chanel feud rumours anyone?), cat fights, running, waiting shoving and smoking below.
