Kinga of Pop

August 31st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The Pop relaunch has been a shot in the arm for fashion lovers everywhere. Each editorial crackles with energy and life, among the standouts is Viviane Sassen‘s stellar series with Kinga Rajzak. Employing tricks of light, nifty cutouts, creative overlays and some truly wicked styling, the story is one of the coolest we’ve seen in a long time.

Tiny Dancer

August 31st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Dree Hemingway is fast becoming a favorite of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. From her turn in the duo’s Gucci campaign to her slot in their epic Vogue Paris editorial last month, the waifish beauty has become an I&V regular. She teams up with the twosome yet again for the latest issue of Purple, stripping down for the magazine’s infamous Purple Naked section. Shot in pure black and white the photos add a dose of sexiness to Ms. Hemingway’s already impeccable repertoie.

The Newton Ideal

August 28th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

In the new Purple, Olivier Zahm and Karl Lagerfeld presents a tribute to longtime KL friend, Helmut Newton by using Baptiste Giabiconi to represent the iconic Newton Woman. 14 pages of the seductive young Frenchman in black stiletto heels (“bought at Ernst Pigalle“) are unsettling, provocative and witty as hell. We love! Here’s a sneak peek.

Plus 2

August 28th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Joining Sasha Pivovarova and Ash Stymest, in multi cover mania are the perfect pairings of Jamie Bochert and Christian Brylle on Vogue Italia cover 2 and Anna Jagodzinska, Will Lewis and Max Rogers on cover 3. VI covers always inspire passionate diatribes from fashion followers and September’s Unexpected trio is no different. Here are some of our favorites from the Fashion Spot fans:

radolgc: So happy to see male models on the cover…it all looks like homeless people having fun with makeup and stealing couture clothes from some shop in the middle of the night and having fun with it! Love the mood, love everything about it…the fact there are multiple covers makes it much more exciting!

youarearockstar: For the record, I think Jamie looks absolutely sensational on that cover and pairing her with Christian Brylle was genius. They’re two witches-cum-chimney sweeps.

vavavinny: …This is all very Oliver Twist / demented Alice in Wonderland to me…Despite my pure and utter hatred for the whole concept, though, I must say that Anna J. steals the show. She still manages to look fierce and sexy, even with that disaster-of-a-hat on her head and the two satyr-looking things standing behind her.

wednesday’s child: No offence to anyone but i just can’t understand how people don’t like this.. it’s perfect in every totally captures the zeitgeist, the casting, styling is perfect!! the dirt, the ruffianishness, to me its like a post apocalyptic vision, where consumer society has been replaced by something harder and more real, where people make do with what is around them to keep warm, but still create outfits that look beautiful with their creativity!… the staff Ash is carrying is like a traveler, a refugee, so global, so now, I can’t wait to get it! can someone explain why they don’t like it!!!!

nijuyanha: The boar in Jamie’s hand scares me (actually gives the impression she’s breastfeeding it) but overall I think that one is probably the best out of all the covers.

And there you go. What’s your take on the 3 covers?

Twisted Sister

August 27th, 2009 |Posted by Wayne

Marilyn‘s Constance Jablonski flaunts her formidable versatility for Craig McDean‘s camera in the forthcoming issue of Interview magazine, shuttling between extreme glamour and avant-garde excess in these images. Don’t you just love the downpour of type hovering above Constance in image #2? It’s not easy to rock “twisted” while remaining this certifiably beautiful.

Purple Play

You saw that infamous video of Paola Kudacki‘s beauty story for Purple #12. Now here is a suite of the actual images of the shoot, straight from De Facto‘s, Paola’s rep. We love that it is as much a jewelry extravaganza as it is a beauty moment.

Most Unexpected

August 27th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Summer is over. The always highly anticipated September Vogue Italia cover appears early with Sasha Pivovarova and Ash Stymest and catapults us into fall. Steven Meisel vibrantly captures the duo as contemporary urchins and delivers a frisson of energy and urgency to the season. Mark that 5 VI covers for Sasha and her hypnotic presence and Ash’s 1st for VI and 8th cover overall in just over a year.
