Abbey Lee Kershaw, Coco Rocha & More in 'Haute Mess' for Vogue Italia

Steven Meisel is no stranger to controversy and has created yet another headline grabbing editorial for the March 2012 issue of Vogue Italia. Named 'Haute Mess', the shoot has been blasted for taking aim at American cultural stereotypes and has even been branded as 'racist' and 'classist', something which editor Franca Sozzani has commented on in a rather vague manner:
"I’ve also seen the word classist being used, and comments about the opening model being pregnant, and the picture inside of another model changing a baby. There are so many sick people around the world that you cannot — I don’t care about them. I care about normal people. They want to read and see the normal way as we did. If they are sick, it’s not my problem. I am not a psychologist. They should find somebody who could help them."
The editorial in question stars models Joan Smalls, Jessica Stam, Karen Elson, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Lindsey Wixson, Daphne Groeneveld, Guinevere van Seenus & Coco Rocha. Styled by Lori Goldstein and with makeup by Pat McGrath, this editorial is quickly becoming one of the most memorable of the year.
