See Inside: Let’s Panic Issue 2

July 20th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

Straddling the margins between art and fashion, Issue 2 of Let’s Panic Magazine is trickling into stands in the U.S.A. now and Europe to follow.  The large format, in-your-face magazine, the project of photographer Greg Kadel, is a collection of inspired editorials, hued from the bold and experimental to the indulgent to the introspective. The thoughtful list of creators and contributors is worthy of praise – Boo George, Mario Sorrenti, Jeff Bark, Jennifer Starr, Judy Blame and Mark Lebon to name a few. On that note, Editor in Chief, Aaron Ward writes, “Of all the steps taken in the creation of an issue of Let’s Panic, the one we most enjoy is the exploratory stage, the part where meetings and conversations introduce us to new people, novel ideas and undiscovered creative twists.”

Inside the magazine, Greg Kadel photographs Jac Jagaciak for a vivid, varicolored beauty story. Shot through water that shifts the light, beauty team Fulvia Farolfi and Nicolas Jurnjack  produce gorgeous tides of blues, rouges and yellows. Editor-slash-photographer Aaron Ward abstractly shoots a model pressed against a pane of glass, to the effect of leaves pressed in a book.  Other editorials breathe life into archival images, like the cover image from Mario Sorrenti’s black-and-white, road trip portraits or casting director Jennifer Starr’s multitude of polaroids.

Siblings Pair Up for Balmain

July 17th, 2015 Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix comments (4)

Balmain explores the intimacy between siblings for their latest collection for Fall/Winter 2015. This time around Mario Sorrenti captures the connections between sister and brother model duos Armando and Fernando Cabral, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Erika and Joan Smalls, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner. There’s no rivalry here with the pairs giving each other a helping hand by applying lip-liner or providing a supporting rest. The familial love brings another meaning of power and strength to the fabulous Balmain Army that Olivier Rousteing has assembled.

Age of Innocence

July 16th, 2015 Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix » Post a comment

The latest issue of Vogue Italia celebrates beauty at any age and features a wide range of influential women shot by some of the greatest photographers in the business. The champion of women of all ages, Steven Meisel returns (that was quick!) with the cover story capturing prolific modeling veterans like Donna Jordan, Erin O’Connor, Frankie Rayder, Sasha Pivovarova, Yasmin Warsame, and their new-school, supermodel-progeny counterparts Anna Cleveland, Kaia Gerber, and Sasha P’s adorable toddler, Mia Isis Vishnyakov. The various range of ages shot by Meisel challenges society’s propensity for ageism in a delightfully refreshing way.

Bruce Weber continues the theme with “Leaders of the Pack” that highlights women that have made an impact culturally like Cheryl Tiegs, Marianne Faithfull, Pat Cleveland, and Penelope Tree. Francesco Carrozzini glams up the incomparable model and personality Heidi Klum for beauty portraits that show the veteran in all her alluring glory. Michel Comte rounds it up with his take on the theme with “Women of Today” featuring some of the most prolific actresses, models, choreographers, & artists with appearances from Anjelica Huston, Tatjana Patitz, Karen Alexander, & Claudia Mason.

Check out Meisel’s return below and to see the other stories visit Vogue.it and pick up the issue on newsstands now!

Lucky Blue and Pyper Team Up for Moncler

July 15th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comment (1)

French-Italian lifestyle brand Moncler drafted newly minted Top 50 model Lucky Blue Smith and sister-slash-bandmate Pyper America for their Fall Winter 15 campaign. Lensed by the legendary Annie Leibovitz, she photographs the pair backed by the sweeping scenery of Iceland; a fitting set against their icy blue eyes and and platinum hair. Following his Tom Ford and Philipp Plein FW 15 campaigns, this serves as another notch on the Instagram boy-wonder’s belt making it more than a lucky streak. Not every model gets a Wall Street Journal article heralding them as a “star on the rise” (the piece, by the way, cites our Editor-in-Chief, Models.com’s Stephan Moskovic). It’s hard to contest his appeal… with Pyper, does that about make them a blonde dynamic duo?

Lily Aldridge Sizzles Over the Summer

July 14th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comment (1)

Heading into August, the summer months brought a good haul for Lily AldridgeCarolina Herrera‘s FW 15 campaign plus the face of their fragrance, covering both L’Officiel & L’Officiel Netherlands and she’s fronting this month’s Vogue Turkey. The Victoria’s Secret Angel, who also can be seen in Taylor Swift‘s model-studded music video for “Bad Blood” and part of the pop-star’s real life squad, is definitely having a summer sizzle moment. Front and center for Vogue Turkey, David Bellemere photographs her gracefully posed against a lush and blooming backdrop. For Herrera, Lily is clothed in rose red looking extra sophisticated. The L’Officiel covers, both lensed by Hugh Lippe and styled by Keegan Singh, find two fashion facets of the Angel–for the Netherlands, they keep things red-hot with warm tones and undone hair.  For Paris the look is polished, cool and fresh having the American model pose beachside. Hopefully Lily’s summer winning keeps rolling into the fall.
