COVER: MALGOSIA BELA BY GREG KADEL, VOGUE SPAIN, AUGUST 2012
Posted on July 22, 2012
If there is one thing Malgosia Bela has that others would die for, (aside from the whole model “sha-bang”), it’s her presence. No matter how dressed or dolled up or down she is, there is something so captivating and mysterious about her that you’re immediately drawn in.
Check out the equally captivating Carretera Secundaria editorial lensed by photographer Greg Kadel, where the model dons a variety of A/W designer apparel including Balmain, Valentino, Prada, Proenza Schouler and more, in many different scenarios.
It’s atmospheric, has the right hint of darkness and foreboding, has a wonderful story and is just…well…absolutely fantastic! Malgosia is like a fashionable chameleon, able to pull of every single look so well, but without compromising her identity.
Although we have seen this story of two travellers, driving in the scorching heat, seedy motels and open roads many a time, I think Greg Kadel has done a wonderful job with the direction, composition and lighting, and really made it his own.
