Vintage W Magazine Spread: Spring Break


Before it became just another "celebrity in pretty clothes" monthly, W Magazine used to feature some amazing editorial work. This one was shot by Bruce Weber and features the once in demand Gerren Taylor and a model I haven't seen a lot of lately, Jaunel McKenzie. Enjoy! Thank you Rubydon for unearthing these photos :) This has got to be one of my all-time favorites!


Editorial: Spring Break
Magazine: W Magazine April 2004
Models: Jaunel McKenzie, Jessica White, Gerren Taylor, Payton Champage, Natassia Schmeidt, Victoria Brito

Jaunel McKenzie and meme roche fell off big time during that whole blackout period.

Do you remember the dark skinned blk model from texas who was doing well. She did channel and Anna liked her. She became pregnant and never came back.

@chic noir - Yeah, unfortunately all the models in this spread (with the exception of Jessica who is doing more commercial stuff these days) have been MIA. A few years back Jaunel was absolutely everywhere and we all know what happened to Gerren once she gained an ounce of weight.

What a fantastic spread. Sun dappled and gorgeous. I love the natural hair on the kids.
