Cowgirl Blues

July 16th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (7)

Txema Yeste‘s surrealist fashion story for Numéro is a sight to behold. Hana Jirickova sports a wide brim hat and attitude to spare in Yeste’s slick photographs, styled to perfection by Belén Casadevall Hana is a powerful presence in the richly saturated images with their striking visuals. With the furs piled high and luxurious jewels peeking out in every other image the story is heavy on luxury, but it’s the addition of shots like the burning chair that give the story its dramatic feel.

The Calvin Universe

July 15th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (2)

The labels may be different, but there is a spirt that unites the many lines of the Calvin Klein empire. During campaign season the mega-brand always manages to create a stir and for fall they unveil five new campaigns, distinctive yet unmistakably Calvin. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) shoot Calvin Klein Jeans & Underwear enlisting Lara Stone and Matthew Terry to provide the prerequisite sex appeal. The #mycalvins hashtag is emblazoned across Mert & Marcus’ beautiful black and white portraits of the duo and is sure to resonate with the social media obsessed.

For Calvin Klein Collection and Platinum advertising David Sims shoots serene images of CK favorites Vanessa Axente and Clark Bockelman sporting the memorable F/W collections with stylish flair. The collection ads with their striking mountainside backdrop provide an especially beautiful showcase for Sims’ minimal style.

Last but certainly not least, familiar faces Edita Vilkeviciute and Tyson Ballou make a perfect couple in the pared down ads for White Label. Sporting coordinating tweeds and knits and looking cooler than thou in Daniel Jackson‘s shots the duo are ideal Calvin representatives conveying exactly the right amount of urban chic.

Kendall-Jenner-Mario-Sorrenti-LOVE-mdc

Kendall Jenner is one of the most talked about models of the moment and with her upcoming feature in Love Magazine her star is set to rise even higher. Mario Sorrenti (Art Partner) shoots Kendall in sumptuous black and white and the end result is a portrait of the star unlike any we’ve seen before. Looking alluring in barely there lingerie, Kendall displays a powerful sexiness completely in line with Sorrenti’s seductive aesthetic. Reaction to the shoot has already been positive, with LOVE Magazine Editor-in-Chief Katie Grand offering high praise, “Kendall is not only one of our cover stars, but one of the breakthrough faces of the season, who I loved so much that I asked her to model in three of our stories this issue.” To her credit, Kendall appreciated the privilege of working with Sorrenti with a nod to one of his most iconic photographs, “I’d never worked with Mario Sorrenti, with whom I’d wanted to shoot nudes ever since that Kate Moss Calvin image of her nude on a sofa.”

July 14th, 2014 Posted by models.com comments (3)

If the World Cup excitement somehow wasn’t enough for you, don’t worry Naomi Campbell is here to make it better. The supermodel joins forces with Beats by Dre and Rankin to model a special pair of gold dipped headphones. These aren’t just the ultimate in luxury headgear, they’re also a unique present given to the champions of the World Cup. The special headphones which will be gifted to team Germany, but not before Naomi has a little fun. Sporting a Tom Ford dress and sky high heels Naomi proves she can kick with the best of them indulging in a little football play of her own in the lighthearted ‘Golden’ ads.

When asked about the campaign, Naomi describes it as a dream come true, “Working on the ‘Golden’ project with Beats by Dr. Dre was so much fun. The shoot was loud and energetic – I even got to practice my football skills! This was the first time I’ve had the chance to work with the legendary Rankin, so it was a dream shoot. The ‘Golden’ project is the perfect way to celebrate the German victory and I’m glad to be a part of this campaign.”

Chanel’s Knock Outs

July 11th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (5)

After that impressive supermarket set for the fall show you might have expected Chanel to deliver a campaign filled with walls of groceries and models pushing carts to the checkout line, but Karl Lagerfeld likes to keep us on our toes. Eschewing the familiar and taking the brand’s imagery into an even more unexpected place Karl sets the fall ads in a boxing gym. We’re sure more than a few fights have broken out over Chanel’s quilted bags and little black jackets so the venue seems oddly fitting. Cara Delevingne and Binx Walton are front and center in Lagerfeld’s images looking cool and chic amidst the gritty backdrop – considering the collection’s sportswear leanings the ultra-cool ads seem right on target.

Full Throttle

July 11th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

Saying that Isabeli Fontana is sexy is a bit like saying water is wet, but the Brazilian bombshell is in rare form in the pages of Vogue Russia. Shot by Terry Tsiolis and sporting a variety of plunging necklines and sinewy shapes selected by Karen Langley Isabeli radiates heat in the sleek studio images. Even when she’s covered in by graphic Proenza Schouler and Christopher Kane prints she still manages to look every inch the vixen.

July 10th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

Proenza Schouler ‘s fall campaign kicks off with a bang, David Sims shoots show opener Julia Bergshoeff in the duo’s kinetic designs for a striking set of images. In the capable hands of Marie Chaix (Art Partner) the collection comes to life the black and white patterns popping against the bright background. The effervescent, Ron Nagle influenced autumn collection explored ideas about action and motion and those themes repeat here. Bleached brows courtesy of Diane Kendal and a sleek coif by Guido Palau complete the vibe to create a look worthy of Jack & Lazaro’s cool girls.
