Eniko Overload!

November 22nd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

How much of the stunning Eniko Mihalik can you handle? The brand new issue of RUSSH serves up multiple images of the Hungarian beauty by Benny Horne. Taking on a variety of roles, from fresh faced teen to otherworldly beauty, Eniko pulls off a bit of quick change artistry with help from stylist Stevie Dance‘s impeccable ensembles. A little Alaïa here, some to die for Reed Krakoff fur sandals and a couple of Patricia Underwood hats later, the team shows off just how fun and transformative clothes can be.

In shocking news, Dolce and Gabbana have been indicted in a tax case stemming from the 2004 sale of their brand. WWD reports: “The designers now may have to face a court trial, which would be the latest step in a case that began in 2008 and which could result in the designers, if they are found guilty, being personally liable for more than $1 billion in unpaid taxes and fines. Dolce and Gabbana have always denied any wrongdoing.” | WWD

Asia Major

November 19th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

As fashion begins to realize the importance of diversity, we start to see exciting things happening; case in point the Asian models feature in the new issue of Vogue. Starring Liu Wen, Du Juan, Tao Okamoto, Lee Hyun Yi, Hyoni Kang, Bonnie Chen, So Young Kang and Lily Zhi in a punk remake of Cecil Beaton’s classic shot of models wearing Charles James, the images by Steven Meisel and Grace Coddington accompany an article on the meteoric rise of models from China, Japan and South Korea.

What makes the story truly interesting are some of the quotations from the girls themselves:

The challenge for me, and for Asian models in general has been convincing editors, stylists and photographers that we can have mass appeal, but Asian, especially Chinese models have become a stronger presence. Just a season or two ago, there weren’t many models for me to talk with backstage in my native Mandarin. Now I usually have no trouble finding someone at any show.” – Liu Wen

“There still are brands or clients that would not consider using an Asian model, but things are changing dramatically and quickly. I am not sure if being Asian was or is a hinderance. In fact I think it is a plus.”
– Du Juan

For All Ages

November 18th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

With the average age of newbie models falling somewhere in the teens and a dearth of barely legal bloggers, stylists and editors, fashion can be a little youth obsessed. How often do you open up the pages of your favorite glossy and see a mature face staring back at you? Definitely not often enough.

On Friday V‘s ‘Who Cares About Age’ Issue hits newsstands and it offers up a refreshing mix of notable beauties old enough to have a little life experience under their Prada belts. From modeling legends like Carmen dell’Orefice and China Machado, to heavy hitters like photographer Martine Malle and Visionaire’s Cecilia Dean, all photographed looking edgy, sexy and glamorous – just like we’d expect from V. Take a look at this exclusive preview of images from the issue and tell us why you think we don’t see enough images of older women and men in magazines. (Check out VMagazine, out now)

The Fantastic Mr. Ford

November 18th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Tom Ford doesn’t do anything quietly; he may have shrouded the presentation of his womenswear collection in secrecy, but that only made us even more eager to see it. The time has finally come for the special all Tom, all the time, guest edited edition of Vogue Paris and the final result is stunning. From the striking Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott cover featuring former MotW and current sensation Daphne Groeneveld looking enraptured alongside Tom, to the inside shots of legends like Lauren Hutton wearing the elegant ensembles; the Ford look is everything we imagined and then some.
