The much-anticipated second issue of 'CR Fashion Book' has just hit news-stands. And editor-in-chief (and former French 'Vogue' editor) Carine Roitfeld does not disappoint, continuing her trademark style of high-controversy fashion editorials to create publicity for the niche fashion title.
This time she's cast Angela "Big Ang" Raiola, the niece of a Miami mob boss, to star in a feature shoot. Bruce Weber shot Victoria Secret regulars Alessandra Ambrosio and Irina Shayk alongside Raiola, who is the breakout star of the US reality series 'Mob Wives', in a spread titled 'Bruce Weber's Miami House Party'.
Though reality TV stars rarely make appearances in high-fashion editorials, Big Ang looks to be embracing the role, laughingly cupping her breasts while posing in a 60's-style red bikini. The new issue is dance-themed, inspired by Roitfeld's love of ballet and featuring the three beauties shaking maracas and twerking their hips on the beaches of Miami.
'CR Fashion Book' has also released a video to promote the new issue. It includes an appearance by hyper-dexterous dancer Lil Buck who is fresh off a tour with Madonna, big jazz beats, plenty of percussion, canoodling on the sand, Carrie The Dancing Dog and, for reasons that aren't completely clear, a poodle getting a haircut by a man with angel wings (Bruce is used to working with pooches, after all).
Roitfeld may have delivered a sombre funeral-themed spread in her first issue, but things are definitely livening up in the second act!
