Ben Toms brings out the softer side of Meghan Collison for Vogue Russia  in a feminine story styled by Katie Shillingford. With cat-eye glasses and a series of Syd Hayes crafted coifs, Meghan is a vision of 1950s kitsch perfection: Bettie Page would be proud.

Sugar & Spice

December 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Who says high fashion has to be complicated or subversive? Steven Meisel takes Kati Nescher and Daria Strokous back to the malt shop in a frothy and frilly ad for Louis Vuitton‘s spring collection. In keeping with the retro theme of the collection, Daria and Kati play around on a shiny pink set that looks culled from Happy Days. As always the accessories are front and center, with pastel Speedys and transparent Lock-its providing another dose of eye candy in a campaign that is practically cavity inducing.

Miss Remer’s first Vogue cover is an explosion of print and pattern as styled to perfection by Nicola Knels & Lynn Schmidt: this is excess done right.

Chameleon Mix

December 12th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Robbie Spencer‘s unique styling never fades into the background, but in Ben Toms‘s latest story for Dazed & Confused, Spencer’s colorful mish mash of patterns is perfectly matched with Simon Costin‘s set design. The striking Yannick Abrath wears everything from Prada’s cartoonish golf prints to Givenchy’s surfer inspired s/s gear in this visual overload of an editorial.

Serpent’s Kiss

December 12th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

The latest edition of Oyster Magazine features the dangerous curves of Daisy Lowe and a slithering serpent twisting its way around her body. The imagery is classic, a beautiful woman as the ultimate temptation, a motif we’ve seen in everything from renaissance paintings to Avedon portraits, but Will Davidson makes it feel fresh. Focusing on the slinky selection of Stella McCartneyLouis Vuitton & Azzedine Alaia chosen by Stevie Dance and Daisy’s sixties chic look, Davidson crafts a story that is stark yet sensual.

Dressed in girlish designs from Valentino and Louis Vuitton, complete with black liner and bouffant Frida is a vision of 60s coquettish charm. In some shots the natural setting creates a cinematic atmosphere, while in others it serves to highlight the otherworldly quality of Frida’s look.
