Since her 2008 Glamour debut, model Emily DiDonato has been unstoppable, and rightfully so. The blue-eye stunner is the face of Maybelline New York Cosmetics and Giorgio Armani’s fragrance Acqua Di Gioia. As if those weren’t accomplishments, DiDonato is now featured on the cover of Vogue Espana‘s October issue.
The cover was shot on the West Side of New York City photographed by one of DiDonato’s long time friend in the industry, Miguel Reveriego.”I’ve been working with Miguel since I started modeling when I was 17. I actually worked with him on one of my first shoots and I was terrified,” DiDonato told Haute Talk in an exclusive interview. “I’ve shot with him in Paris, Rome and on a number of different things. I was so glad he was shooting this cover. He appreciates beautiful women and I always feel like he makes me look my best.”
The spread features different designers, including Moschino and Gucci, whose clothes were incorporated with a lot of vintage pieces. “I thought it was cool how the stylist Belen Antolin (who I love) mixed pieces that were fresh off the runway with a pair of vintage Levi’s. I love the mixture of new and old,” she said.
The cover was the first shot of the day which was so exciting for Emily. She was featured on top of a Lamborghini with loose wavy hair and a pop of red lips. Although Emily isn’t shy when it comes to being in front of the camera, she gushes about how this shoot was especially different from previous jobs. “I like how fresh it is and how I was encouraged to smile because a lot of times these days models are expected to look a bit moody or grumpy. It was nice to smile and be myself for this cover and shoot with people I really like.”
Working with such an iconic publication like Vogue is a dream of hers and a huge platform in DiDonato’s career. The charming beauty nailed the Vogue Espana spread and we can’t wait to see what project she will tackle next. You go girl!
