Dreamland

April 28th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

For the latest issue of Vogue Turkey photographers Sean and Seng take cover girl Sam Rollinson sightseeing in dreamland. The inside story, through the photo-duo’s signature wistful and dreamy perspective, features the Brit beautified by natural half-light in Margate, a seaside British town in Thanet; of which the painter JMW Turner remarked, “the skies over Thanet are the loveliest in all Europe”. That silken light serves up a sublime ambience for Sam in spring couture styled by Konca Aykan and posh hair and makeup provided by Cyndia Harvey and Lotten Holmqvist. Check out the exclusive preview of the spread below and the cover here.

I am Legend

April 27th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (9)

For Vogue Brasil’s fortieth birthday, they laud none other than their own Brazilian legend, Gisele Bundchen. Though she walked her last show in the recent São Paolo Fashion Week, ending 20 years on the runway, the mega-model and mother continues to raise her fabled career to even more illustrious proportions. The cover shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin puts an unclothed and statuesque Gisele on a pedestal looking absolutely immortal. A very apropos choice.

Fine China

April 23rd, 2015 Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix comments (5)

China has been haunted by literary tropes that have shown but a fraction of the rich, dynastic culture it has. For this summer’s Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition, “China: Through the Looking Glass”, The Costume Institute in collaboration with the Met’s Department of Asian Art, will examine the influence of the Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion. For the latest issue of American Vogue, Steven Meisel and Grace Coddington have taken this examination one step further highlighting elegant, vintage couture creations on the lithe form of Fei Fei Sun. From the blossoming branches of a new season to come to the alluring, sensual mystery of a woman not to be trifled with, this year’s exhibit shows the range of narratives that surrounds the enigmatic country of the Far East.

Pick up the latest issue of Vogue on newsstands this week.

In honor of Earth Day and the planet we inhabit, Models.com decided to reflect on a few of the industry’s most eco-friendly champions. These are the recognizable faces campaigning, not for customers, but for sustainability and environmental ethics, along with a simple compassion for Mother Nature. Forty-five years after the first Earth Day there is still much work to be done. Beneath the recent issues of social dissidence and global dilemmas, there is the simplest cause of them all–Earth! Here are few of fashion’s favorite sustainability advocates.

Inside the issue, Vogue Paris does a retrospective of its favorite shoots with the Ethiopian icon and features an in depth story titled Et, Dieu Crea Liya.

Throughout the years, Liya has also been a mainstay in publications like Vogue Italia, American Vogue, V Magazine & i-D and has worked with a bevy of photographers like Steven Meisel, Craig McDean, Annie Leibovitz, and Mert & Marcus. She has been the face of Estee Lauder and has been featured in campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, & Balenciaga. With her roles in movies like Desert Flower, The Good Shepherd, & Day of the Falcon she has been able to shown her wide range of creative passions.

Through her Liya Kebede Foundation she has used her extensive platform as an international supermodel to reduce maternal, newborn and child mortality in Ethiopia and around the world.
