La Reina

June 27th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (6)

With the triple campaign whammy of Balenciaga, Isabel Marant and Emilio Pucci Gisele Bundchen proves herself high fashion’s MVP. Given that she’s already the current face of H&M and has taken over Stuart Weitzman from none other than Kate Moss, it can feel as though we’re seeing Gisele everywhere and that’s a good thing. Bundchen has always been a compelling presence in front of the camera and her jam-packed campaign slate gives her ample opportunity to display her versatility. In Steven Klein‘s (Art Partner) punk ads for Balenciaga she’s a buzz-cut sporting rebel, while Mario Sorrenti‘s(Art Partner) sleek ads for Pucci give her a chance to amp up the sex appeal in Peter Dundas‘ elegantly embellished party pieces. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin offer yet another interpretation with Bundchen playing Marant’s well-dressed everywoman in Marant’s signature relaxed knits and layers.

Jason Wu’s Four Seasons

June 26th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (6)

jasonwuadrianalima

Over the last few years Jason Wu has made a habit of taking supermodels to the world’s finest eateries – Karen Elson at Indochine, Stephanie Seymour at La Grenouille, Christy Turlington at Mr. Chows, an impressive lineup and a concept that has provided Wu’s ads with an appealing visual signature. For fall Wu and Adriana Lima head over to fabled Manhattan restaurant, The Four Seasons. Considering that The Four Seasons is the birthplace of the “powerlunch” it seems like an ideal spot to showcase the sophisticated and expertly tailored F/W collection. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shoot Lima against the restaurant’s impressive Mies van der Rohe designed interiors and Adriana looks right at home perched in a corner of the pool room.

Grace Coddington handles styling and as always provides an eye-catching mix of designer wares. Pieces from Tom Ford, Burberry and Saint Laurent Paris are put to good use and Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Linda Cantello‘s hair & makeup provide the final touch of swinging sixties beauty.

WSJ continues its traditional of excellence in editorial with a refreshing story by Daniel Riera (Jed Root). Shot along the shores of Jones Beach and featuring layered pre-fall looks styled by Vanessa Traina (Management + Artists) the editorial is a crisp and cool take on dressing for the days in-between seasons. Stephanie Joy Field is gamine in lightweight sweaters and minimalist separates accented by flat loafers and understated jewelry. When paired with the backdrop of wood shingle beach houses and clear blue water the effortlessness of these pared down looks shines through; this is simplicity at its best and Riera’s images capture this mood in chic style.
