Models and rockers — it's one of those perennial combos, like peanut butter and jelly or blended whiskey and Marlboro Lights, that outlast trend and time. The latest Vogue resurrects this classic formula with "Rock the House," a his-and-hers editorial featuring multiple indie music artists — MGMT, Mika, the Horrors — and one Condé mannequin, Sasha Pivovarova, vamping along with the young rock stars. Granted, Vogue isn't exactly breaking ground with their choice of artists for this Grace Coddington–styled, Steven Meisel–shot spread, but it has its moments. We're particularly enjoying Pivovarova's lonesome tête a tête with Beirut's Zach Condon and her back-to-back mugging with Adam Green. And she almost appears to be with the band when she wedges herself into the lineup of yacht-rock kings Vampire Weekend, leaving us to wonder whether the Brooklyn-based boys should draft her as a backup tambourinist for their next tour. Think about it, guys.
