It is rare to find a decent editorial in most magazines, even when the price tag is hefty, so imagine my surprise when I picked up a copy of the free H&M magazine and found not one, but two stories that I truly enjoyed. First up, one of my all time favorite photographer + model duos, Terry Richardson and Natasa Vojnovic, do a girl about town story shot right here in New York. Every time these two work together something good happens and though the story itself is staid (kinder gentler Terry just can’t compete with sleazy Terry) I adore George Cortina’s styling on this.

Next Alasdair McLellan shoots the adorable, Dree Hemingway with Boyd Holbrook and Ollie Edwards. This is the kind of simple and beautiful outdoors edit that reminds me a great deal of Bruce Weber’s work. Flipping through it almost makes you want to create a little backstory for the images: three beautiful youngsters, what appears to be an abandoned summer camp, lots of long looks and lingering touches – add in some nudity and a bit of political context and you’d have the next Bertolucci film.
