Style & Substance

August 5th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (4)

It doesn’t take much to make Daria Werbowy look good, but Josh Olins brings out Daria’s best in the pages of WSJ‘s fall fashion edition. The globe-trekking supermodel looks luxe in Nicolas Ghesquière‘s debut Vuitton collection and a series of other looks selected by Alastair McKimm. With a laid-back grace that is evident whether she’s wearing jeans or draped in furs, Werbowy pulls off the looks admirably lending the story a seventies style cool that makes even the priciest pieces seem down to earth.


Read the WSJ’s accompanying interview with Daria where she reveals her surprising choice for a second career.

Oscar’s Attitude!

August 4th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

Oscar de la Renta is known for his sophisticated designs, but don’t ever accuse the legendary designer of being boring! Fall finds de la Renta’s brand in an irreverent mood, showcasing the sumptuous fall/winter collection in images by Norman Jean Roy that run the gamut from simply elegant to downright cheeky. Diana Moldovan and Larissa Hofmann are equally alluring in their shots, sporting pin straight hair by Orlando Pita and bright smoky shadow by Gucci Westman. Stylist Natasha Royt plays up the collection’s decadence, focusing on fur embellished and richly detailed looks in bold jewel tones. The best shots are the ones that offer up an added storyline via playful tableaus like Diana stepping on the train of Larissa’s crimson gown.

Chloe Hits the Road

August 1st, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (2)

For fall Chloe heads upstate to Harriman, New York for a designer roadtrip shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, who put their style to good use creating an atmospheric campaign with the energy and sun-drenched cinematography of a feature film. Sasha Pivovarova and Andreea Diaconu are the heroines of this piece and they cruise through the deserted streets clad in Baylee bags, chunky furs and the seventies style girlish pieces that are Chloe’s bread & butter. The duo makes for the perfect pair of Chloe girls and the dreamy vibe of the video fits creative director, Clare Waight Keller’s vision completely.

“As with the collection, I wanted to create this sense of mystery, something strange and a little bit wild. I liked the idea of two girls escaping, moving forward. There’s a real beauty in the idea of chasing something hopeful.” – Clare Waight Keller, Chloé Creative Director

The Brazilian bombshell flamencos onto the cover of Vogue Italia with an expressive shot that showcases her peerless posing ability. No one moves quite like Isabeli so it’s no wonder Meisel enlisted her for his spirited tribute to Maria Felix. Dancer Timo Nunez joins Isabeli for the image and editorial, adding a sensual energy to the images and showcasing some jaw-dropping moves in Gordon von Steiner‘s accompanying film.

September Reign

July 30th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (5)

By now we’ve all heard the story about celebrities taking precious magazine cover spots away from models, but this September it appears the tides have turned. After years of stars on the front pages more and more magazines are looking to models for their biggest fashion issues. British Vogue boasts Cara Delevingne looking sleek in Nicolas Ghesquière‘s collection for Louis Vuitton in an image by Mario Testino (Art Partner), while Elle UK enlists a Prada clad Kate Upton for fashion forward shot by Matt Jones. Though the September covers are only just starting to debut you can already see which collections are going to be inecapable for the next few months.  WSJ provides a fetching seventies style image of Daria Werbowy by Josh Olins that also puts Ghesquière’s wares to good use. In keeping with the trend The New York Times’ T Magazine reaches for Prada, sheathing Vanessa Axente in one of the brand’s oversized coats in a strong cover image by Craig McDean.

Wang Takes No Prisoners!

July 29th, 2014 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Alexander Wang knows how to hold your attention and the designer always manages to surprise with his provocative campaigns. For fall Wang has got things on lockdown – literally. Citing the idea of “survival mode” as an inspiration Wang and Steven Klein (Art Partner) serve up women’s prison imagery with a fashion twist. Anna EwersVanessa MoodyLexi BolingKatlin Aas and Kat Hessen sport the utilitarian fall collection as they’re plunged into a world of strict rules, strip searches and  confinement. With Karl Templer styling you’re not going to see any orange jumpsuits and the girls look exceptional even as they impatiently await sentencing. All in all the ads mesh perfectly with the label’s spirit of youthful rebellion and provide the season’s most in-your-face campaign moment via that extreme on the floor shot.
