Shalom Harlow is the latest 90s supermodel to be staging a comeback. After walking in the Alexander Wang's fall 2012 show, she's popping up in editorials and ad campaigns, and we couldn't be happier to see her back on the circuit.
For her latest gig, she covers Oyster mag's "All Woman" issue, and stars in an editorial shot by Cass Bird and styled by Stevie Dance. It was shot in NYC at the Bowery Hotel. While on set, this punky looking gentleman wandered into the shoot, Harlow rolled with it because she's a supermodel, flashed him, and now that shot is glossy history. Here's how it happened, according to Dance:
Shalom was the most impeccably professional and fun super woman I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She was a true performer, and Cass and her had a great connection on set shooting Oyster's issue celebrating THE WOMAN. We shot at the Bowery Hotel in an amazing patio suite. The day was very impromptu with not one man on set, until we picked up PUNK KOUTURE – this gentleman who made it into the edit. He was dining outside at Gemma, on holiday from England and--lucky him--got to share this great moment with one of our industry's most beautiful forces. Lucky us too.
Indeed. Not many men can claim to have been that up close and personal with Shalom. We love this image! At the time of the shoot, photographer Christopher Peterson (who was shooting the editorial paparazzi-style) got a different angle (see right)--and Shalom looked like she was having a blast.
The issue lands on newsstands this Friday, and in edition to Shalom's spread, there's an editorial featuring Tavi Gevinson, an interview with Girls' Lena Dunham, a feature with Sally Singer, and tons more.
