American Vogue – “The American Way”
Denim is a common material in editorials that have a Western theme. This isn’t surprising because the textile has been used in America since the 18th century which is a time when animal herders (who became known as cowboys in the late 19th century) are a common sight especially in Mexico and in North America. This editorial, titled “The American Way”, from American Vogue features Amber Valetta and Taylor Kinney in what looks like an ode to the West with denim and fashion that is for stylish cowboys and cowgirls. Stylist Alex White styled the two models-turned-actors in pieces from Tommy Hilfiger, Proenza Schouler, Rag & Bone and many others. The images are captured by German photographer Peter Lindbergh for American Vogue’s February 2013 issue.
