Revisit Steven Meisel’s Photographs in W, from Gigi Hadid to Barbra Streisand


Steven Meisel is one of the most famous fashion photographers in history, thanks to his groundbreaking images of everyone from then-unknown models like Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Karen Elson, and Christy Turlington to Madonna. While Meisel is a regular in the pages of American Vogue and Vogue Italia (he’s shot every cover for the latter since 1988), in recent years, he’s become a frequent contributor to W Magazine. In honor of the legendary photographer’s birthday today, here’s a look back at some of Meisel’s photographs for W Magazine, including those of actresses Barbra Streisand and Jane Fonda, and models Gigi Hadid and Natalia Vodianova.
