Image Conscious

May 18th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

W gives us an early taste of fall with Craig McDean‘s chic portfolio of the season’s must have looks. Using a cast of IMG beauties and a simple peach backdrop, McDean highlights just about every piece we loved from the F/W collections. Once again Alex White‘s styling looks phenomenal and each girl wears an ensemble that speaks to her personality; could anyone look better in that stunning Haakan dress than Karolina, who better to show off Rodarte’s ethereal spirt than Liya? See the full portfolio and the models and designer’s take on each look at W Magazine.com

Pin Up Girl

May 18th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The battle to be modeling’s next big crossover star is heating up and Miranda Kerr just earned herself another point. The Aussie cutie graces the cover of GQ with an incredibly sexy editorial by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Wearing a white bikini and little more, Miranda turns up the heat and cements her place as this years number one pinup. How many girls can say they’ve been on the cover of i-D and GQ at the exact same time?

A Love Thing

May 17th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Behati Prinsloo and Jamie Strachan are one of modeling’s coolest couples and the pair brings their real life chemistry to the pages of i-D for a special story shot by Kayt Jones. Cast as strangers meeting who share a night of passion, Jamie and Behati sizzle in their shots together. The story is taken a step further by Pippa Vosper‘s modern styling, using only clothes from online boutique The-Corner, where their editorial is accompanied by a special video.

Another reason to love Natalia Vodianova. Behind that angel face is the heart of a warrior, determined to do as much as she can to help the children of the world through the power of her beauty. Here’s her new project, Bugaboo Red which helps pregnant women with HIV. “These days, if you don’t take a socially responsible position, you’re out of the club,” says Natalia. We couldn’t agree more!

Congratulations Lara Stone and David Walliams! We are so happy for Lara who got married this weekend in a gorgeous dress by Riccardo Tisci. Check out some pics of friends on British Vogue who include Tom Ford and Jefferson Hack.

Michelle Lee, casting director extraordinaire talks to WWD about the casting process and her favorite new faces of the season.

On a sombre note, Jezebel looks at the terribly sad trend of model suicides, in the wake of Noemie Lenoir‘s suicide attempt. Look for our upcoming special interview with a top model about this topic.

Take a look at Gisele when she started out. House of Models has 2 pics side by side of Gisele 15 years ago and Gisele now. Still drop dead gorgeous!

Remember the beautiful Gail Elliott from the 90s? Frockwriter reviews her Little Joe line which appeared for the first time at the Sydney shows.

The uniquely stunning Eve Salvail is interviewed by Ponyryder.

Check out these adorable new faces videos from Folio in Canada. Shows that simple is sometimes so much better.

Don’t all you models wish you had a fan like this?

“The perfect example of having a lot of money to spend but not knowing what to do with it.” OUCH!

Model Hildie G is one of Paul Rowland’s new fabulous faces for Ford. She may be the antithesis of what Eileen Ford would have liked.

Speaking of Ford, how cute is the new V Man/Ford Model contest winner, Michael Wozniak in this video by Ford?

Continuing their successful collaboration, Cushnie et Ochs have once again enlisted for their newest lookbook, photographer Chadwick Tyler and stylist Nicole Vitagliano. For this collection, the sisterly duo has increased their focus on texture and construction with a body conscious aesthetic that’s strong and powerful. And who better to coil and stare at the lens than Meghan Collison, one of the new generation of chameleon like beauties?

G-Spot

In all the i-D fun we couldn’t forget about the formidable Mrs. Brady! Looking as tan and toned as ever Gisele Bundchen shines on the cover, shot by Matt Jones ; a straw hat and a spare bedsheet have never looked quite so good. Many have tried, but few can match Gisele for pure, unadulterated sexy.

Provocative & Evocative

May 12th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Jeneil Williams is a force of nature, look at her latest cover of i-D and the accompanying story and you will see just why she is one of the girls of the moment. The energy, sensuality and grace that she brings to Daniel Jackson‘s images is unparalleled; Marie Chaix‘s provocative styling is brought to life by Jeneil’s expressive movements, no one else works it in quite the same way she does. and seeing her do her thing in editorials is an absolute joy.

May 12th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Fei Fei Sun is a stunner, but Alain Pichon‘s sky high hairstyles and Alex Box‘s bright makeup takes her into the stratosphere; the trio teams up for a stunning Vogue China story, shot by Jem Mitchell, that focuses on the elegance of knotted updos. The simple story showcases the talents of the whole team and Fei Fei’s face is truly the perfect canvas for makeup, no matter how outlandish the look.
