The Brazilian bombshell flamencos onto the cover of Vogue Italia with an expressive shot that showcases her peerless posing ability. No one moves quite like Isabeli so it’s no wonder Meisel enlisted her for his spirited tribute to Maria Felix. Dancer Timo Nunez joins Isabeli for the image and editorial, adding a sensual energy to the images and showcasing some jaw-dropping moves in Gordon von Steiner‘s accompanying film.

September Reign

July 30th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (5)

By now we’ve all heard the story about celebrities taking precious magazine cover spots away from models, but this September it appears the tides have turned. After years of stars on the front pages more and more magazines are looking to models for their biggest fashion issues. British Vogue boasts Cara Delevingne looking sleek in Nicolas Ghesquière‘s collection for Louis Vuitton in an image by Mario Testino (Art Partner), while Elle UK enlists a Prada clad Kate Upton for fashion forward shot by Matt Jones. Though the September covers are only just starting to debut you can already see which collections are going to be inecapable for the next few months.  WSJ provides a fetching seventies style image of Daria Werbowy by Josh Olins that also puts Ghesquière’s wares to good use. In keeping with the trend The New York Times’ T Magazine reaches for Prada, sheathing Vanessa Axente in one of the brand’s oversized coats in a strong cover image by Craig McDean.

Wang Takes No Prisoners!

July 29th, 2014 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Alexander Wang knows how to hold your attention and the designer always manages to surprise with his provocative campaigns. For fall Wang has got things on lockdown – literally. Citing the idea of “survival mode” as an inspiration Wang and Steven Klein (Art Partner) serve up women’s prison imagery with a fashion twist. Anna EwersVanessa MoodyLexi BolingKatlin Aas and Kat Hessen sport the utilitarian fall collection as they’re plunged into a world of strict rules, strip searches and  confinement. With Karl Templer styling you’re not going to see any orange jumpsuits and the girls look exceptional even as they impatiently await sentencing. All in all the ads mesh perfectly with the label’s spirit of youthful rebellion and provide the season’s most in-your-face campaign moment via that extreme on the floor shot.

Prabal’s Peak

July 28th, 2014 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Prabal Gurung.
Rosie Huntington Whiteley.
Daniel Jackson.

The dream team of Gurung, Huntington Whiteley and Jackson give us one of the season’s most creative campaigns. Rosie stands atop a mountain range as she poses in ultra-luxe looks from Gurung’s Nepal influenced fall collection. With their surreal colors and trippy visuals Jackson’s images are instantly memorable and exactly the kind of high drama imagery this season needs more of.

Dirty Jobs

July 28th, 2014 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Odds are you probably wont see Arizona Muse toiling away at your local mechanic shop, but Vogue Paris  provides the elegant Miss Muse with a chance to put her fix-it skills to good use in a fresh story by Mark Segal. Dressed in workman standards like overalls, coveralls and plaid shirts aplenty, Arizona and the dashing Jason Anthony take turns welding, perching on toolboxes and wielding sledgehammers in Segal’s gritty yet playful imagery. Stylist Géraldine Saglio makes Muse & Anthony look natural in their gear, which lends the story and air of authenticity even though we’re sure most people don’t do their dirty work in Jean Paul Gaultier.

Crown of Fire

July 24th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (4)

Modeling holds a special place for redheads – some of fashion’s finest names have fiery locks naturally and even more have experimented with the color on a temporary basis. American Vogue pays tribute to the loveliest and most notable redheads in a special portfolio by Annie Leibovitz that features appealing gingers from the worlds of film, sport and of course modeling. With fashion’s most famous ginger Grace Coddington serving as stylist and Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Aaron de Mey (Art Partner) handling hair and makeup respectively, the editorial is a beautiful showcase for the respective stars and their crowning glories. Naturally, Karen Elson makes the list, but so does fresh face Madison Stubbington.
