Carine Roitfeld, editor-in-chief of our sister publication, CR Fashion Book, has just released the first round of images from her upcoming CR Girls 2016. Lensed by Sante D'Orazio, the 48-page portfolio features 20 of the world's top supermodels—from Gigi and Bella Hadid to Irina Shayk, Nina Agdal, and Joan Smalls—all wearing Gianvito Rossi shoes and Yeezy Season 2.

A longtime friend and collaborator of Roitfeld's, Kanye West granted the editor unlimited access to the collection, which served as inspiration for the story: "I decided to make this shoot very sexy, like the one I did with Steven Meisel for Pirelli—using oversized clothes and sportswear mixed with high heels by Gianvito Rossi, and reflecting the military mood of Kanye's show. His show inspired me with the form of the girls too. They all looked tough, but sexy.”

Roitfeld is known for her impeccable eye when it comes to discovering new models, and has always been steadfast in her support for the girls she believes in—as evidenced by the new book. “I am very loyal to models I like, from Julia my daughter and love forever, to my new girl Amina Blue," says the editor.
