Mikael Jansson steams up Vogue Paris, with a sizzling seaside editorial starring Isabeli Fontana; the sexy story shows of Isabeli’s lithe physique and a variety of jewel tone dresses chosen by Anastasia Barbieri. Whether she is lounging on the beach or being assisted by a team of scuba divers, Isabeli projects an image of luxury and intensity that is perfect for this story.

Vintage Finds

May 24th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Were used to seeing Ranya Mordanova looking edgy in jet black Givenchy, so it is nice every now and then to get a change of pace; KT Auleta shows the retro side of Ranya in the latest Vogue Russia. Dressed in cat eye glasses and full skirts, Ranya looks sweet and lovely. Simon Robins creates the perfect vintage inspired looks, using pieces from Celine and Vuitton and Ranya brings them to life with her signature dramatic flair.

Bits & Bytes: Hanne on a Summery Day

May 21st, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Hanne by Andrew. On a lovely Friday in New York, Hanne stops by to see Andrew Weir for a casting.

————————————–

Photography news:

Unbelievable! David Bailey has worked with British Vogue for 50 years. See all the lovely ladies that came out to honor him. We salute you David!

Find out here about the Made in Brazil Magazine filled with some of the sexiest of male models of today (and where to order it). Part 2 is here. Get it, it’s a collector’s piece. We are announcing MODELS.com’s winners of the giveaways next week.

The Imagist has a fascinating interview with Hugh Lippe, definitely a young, talented photographer to watch.

Haiti is no longer so prevalent in the news but that doesn’t mean the Haitians need any less help. Look at these incredible images in a Art for Haiti auction that just began. Stam is in 2 of the shots; all the artwork is phenomenal and starting at outrageously affordable prices and for such a great cause; it’s a must see.

For those of you bemoaning the lack of naked women or breasts or just general salaciousness on Terry Richardson’s blog, don’t you fret… Andrew Richardson‘s Magazine is relaunching any day now. No, they are not related, except maybe metaphorically speaking in their obvious love for breasts.

If you’re in Paris, go check out the wonderful Ellen von Unwerth Cinema exhibition. (Till June 19th)

Not modeling related but how cool is Jed Root’s photographer Mary Ellen Matthews who is Saturday Night Live’s house photographer?

Fashion:

Why Riccardo Tisci matters. Here is Sans Artifice’s take on it.

If you missed it, Alber Elbaz, talks to Style.com in their Future of Fashion series.

OK. I finally get the hype about young Tavi now. Just read this post by her on the whole recent Terry kerfuffle and am blown away by the insightfulness of this 14 year old young lady.

Like 10 Magazine, we are obsessing over this bag. And damn you Tommy Ton for suddenly making us want all of these.

Katie Grand pens this moving tribute to industry powerhouse Katy Baggot who passed away so suddenly.

Anna Sui‘s book is coming out and we cannot wait! With an introduction by Steven Meisel, expect the book to have much fabulousness.

Anne Christensen rumored to fill the top slot at the New York Times’ T Magazine. We’ll let you know if it’s not true.

Modeling news:

From Marpessa to Carla Bruni to Mariacarla Boscono, former model turned agent to the superstars, Woman Milan’s Piero Piazzi is amazing. Read his interview and see a picture of him!

Talk about inspirational. Fernando Fernandes, you may remember got paralyzed from a car accident (see him here in the current Dolce Gabbana fragrance campaign) . He’s already in a new ad which just shot.

OK, this trailer made me cry. Incredible model/activist Liya Kebede, in Desert Flower, rocks my world portraying the incredible model/activist Waris Dirie.

Next in line to design is Irina Lazareanu, calling it Rini by Irina. She has phenomenal style though so it could be pretty darn good.

This just in. 9 Daughter & A Stereo, who repped some of the coolest, quirkiest boys around, is rumored to have closed. So sad if that’s true.

Fresh Direct

May 21st, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

What better way to show off the latest wares from the season’s new design stars, than to put them on the backs of the most au courant models? Vogue Paris displays clothes from rising stars Mark Fast, Hakaan and Alexandre Vauthier on stunners Barbara Palvin, Hannah Holman and Imogen Newton. Shot by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Jane How, the story succeeds in making the clothes and the girls look phenomenal.

A Tale of Two Terrys

May 20th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Terry Richardson takes Doutzen Kroes in two very different directions with their recent collaborations. For Vogue Russia’s cover, Terry shows Doutzen dirtied up and looking dangerous as part of his sex portfolio, but tones it down for Vogue US with a sweet beach story. Which look do you prefer – sexy or sweet?
