The Steven Klein Academy in W Magazine


The Academy is more than just an editorial. It’s a return to form for one of my favorite photographers, Steven Klein, who’s been frankly having more misses than hits recently. This is Klein at his best. It’s also a validation for Lara Stone. Many people questioned Carine Roitfeld’s decision to dedicate a whole French Vogue issue to Lara earlier this year. Well, look at the editorials and ad campaigns she’s been booking nonstop lately. The Academy also marks Red model Alan Carey’s graduation into the spotlight. We’ve long known he’s a star, now everyone else does. Finally, this cinematic editorial, combined with ‘Sunday at the Park,’ elevates W Magazine to the level of V Magazine, for me personally. Well done on this issue, W.



The Academy models include Lara Stone, Alan Carey, Colby Jamar, Ryan Koning, Pasha Kalachev, Hubert Czech, Miles White, Sterling Folkestad, Kyle Fetzer, and Lars Kier. The styling is by Camilla Nickerson.
