The Dark Arts

March 31st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

When a photographer wants a model who can tap into all that is brooding and foreboding there is a very short list of girls he or she can rely on. The name at the very top of that list is none other than Jamie Bochert, her mysterious look lends itself to the extremes of fashion. Greg Kadel gives Bochart free reign to unleash her dark side within the pages of the latest Numero. Armed with a cigarette holder and heaps of attitude Jamie looks completely at home in the hypnotic world Kadel creates.

Pure & Simple

March 31st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

How much do we love Chadwick Tyler? The fast rising photographer’s images are popping up everywhere and with his uniquely moody style it’s easy to see why. For the latest issue of The Last Magazine Tyler captures the ethereal beauty of  Siri Tollerod and Lena Lomkova.  While both girls are known for their delicate prettiness, Tyler brings out an added edge. The simple series  is evocative and spare – fancy props and exotic locations aren’t required,  all you need are two beautiful girls and a capable photographer at the helm.

Viva Vanity!

March 31st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Vanity Fair continues its love affair with Gisele Bundchen, placing the supermodel on the cover of its May issue with a steamy Mario Testino pictorial and what promises to be an equally revealing interview. It’s no surprise that VF has chosen the supermodel to grace its cover given their almost 10 year support of her rise to the top. VF.com looks back with a retrospective of every Vanity Fair appearance by La Bundchen, from a baby faced Gisele as Lady Godiva on a white horse to the all grown up Mrs. Brady looking sensual in a Manhattan apartment.

The Legend of Lauren

March 30th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

With the Met’s Model As Muse exhibition little more than a month away, more and more publications are looking to models as a source of fashion inspiration. This month Vogue Paris salutes the legendary style of Lauren Hutton within its pages. Knoepfel & Indlekofer capture Laura Blokhina looking luxe while Veronique Didry‘s savvy styling nails the laid back 70s glamour that Hutton personified. With her high cheekbones and languid demeanor Blokhina is the absolute spitting image of Lauren in her youth and serves to remind us of all those amazing Lauren moments over the years.

Mario’s World

March 27th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Mario Sorrenti‘s droll cover with Kate Moss for last fall’s Purple magazine was just a peek at the man for all the fans of his enigmatic and unconventionally bewitching photography. Luckily, this month in Vogue Hommes International, the broodingly handsome lensman turns the camera upon himself for a 7 page solo story showcasing all sides Sorrenti. Whether a leather jacketed bad boy, a tux wearing skateboarder, a guitar straddling rocker or a dapper and sophisticated man of the world, Mr. Sorrenti shows he’s as captivating in front of the lens as he is behind it.
