Bits & Bytes: Holiday Edition 2009

December 29th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

happy-holidays
In true holiday spirit, Art & Commerce makes a donation to City Harvest. Watercolor by the incomparable Mats Gustafson.

—————————————————————————————————————

Modeling news:
For those of you who have been away for the holidays on some tropical island and are not obsessively checking the Internet every single day….. Gisele Bundchen finally names her baby.

In other “unless you’ve been under a rock or on a tropical isle” news, Tyra Banks is ending her talk show.

British Vogue highlights their 23 models to watch for 2010. Some are familiar like former MOTW’s Stephanie Rad, Keats Kolyasnikova, Frida and Heidi Rock. We love the new Portia and several other new fabulous faces.

In the on going process of adding slash to their job descriptions, Erin Wasson is rumored to start acting and Noah Mills is ALREADY acting. For those who might remember, we tweeted back in Sept about who was the top model rumored to appear in the new SATC 2… From MOTW to SATC in a mere 7 years, you go Noah! In other former MOTW news, Dolce & Gabbana favorite Adam Senn is supposedly dating Lindsay Lohan. Do what you will with that info.

Speaking of model/slash, Hyoni Kang‘s new store gets a visit by Style.com.

Jezebel’s Jenna highlights the sad plight of the industry when the unbelievable Lara Stone is considered “fat”.

Oh too cute. Coco Rocha and a gaggle of 5 year olds visit her agency.

Fashion and photography:
So sad, amazing brand PHI (designed by the amazing Andreas Melbostad) closes

OMG. You thought Vinoodh Matadin was hot now? Look at this NSFW picture from 1986.

Only because Lady Gaga was THE fashion influence of the year, check out this one man’s obsessive creation of 39 of her looks on Barbie dolls. Kinda nuts in a totally fabulous way.

2009 Lists:
Fashion Week Daily‘s Chic citizens of 2009… Here’s numbers 6-10and 1-5.

Jezebel‘s top 10 fashion successes and failures of the year. They also have a pretty good list of their top models of the decade. We would have included Kate Moss who went from a mere supermodel to a model power broker with her recent deals with Topshop.

Contrast this with French Vogue’s 30 top models of the 00′s. All we can say is that of all the INCREDIBLE photos they’ve taken of Daria Werbowy (whose had 3 VP covers in the last year and a half), Anja Rubik, Gisele Bundchen and Lily Donaldson, they chose THOSE to represent these girls??? Congrats to Kasia Struss to making the list.. nice girls don’t always finish last!

Craig from Altamira who obsessively details the models’ streetstyle has some of his best dressed list of 2009.

Miscellaneous:
In the “I just get tired from reading this post” news, Derek Blasberg, just might be the hardest partying man of 2009. Check out these exclusive pics for V Magazine from Derek’s camera.

Some of our favorite agency Xmas emails: Luke Worral’s agents at D1 have Elfed themselves; this slightly creepy, culty video filled with boys and candles from the folks at Nine Daughters and a Stereo, the hilarious card below from the team at Ford NY‘s men’s division and the people at One Management who step in front of the camera for once.

To end the year, take a look at this gorgeous editorial, The 12 days of Christmas from American Vogue Dec 98 from the inimitable team of Steven Meisel and our favorite person in fashion,Grace Coddington.

Knock Em’ Out

June 8th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Dolce & Gabbana’s F/W campaign packs a one-two punch of star power. Jesus Luz, David Gandy, Noah Mills, Adam Senn, Julien Quevenne, Cory Bond & Eva Herzigova join forces in a boxing themed series that takes inspiration from the classic Visconti film, Rocco e i Suoi Fratelli. Steven Klein is at the helm once again which means the campaign is sure to be memorable, slick and full of skin.

Bits and Bytes: On Katja

April 17th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

If you missed the fascinating interview with Self Service/French Vogue/i-D photographer Katja Rahlwes on MDC’s MDX blog, catch it here. It’s an intimate portrait of an intriguing and talented woman.

Directly from Next Models to the Imagist, Anna Jagodzinska, Vogue cover girl, has the most cake!

Ah, we’ve always liked Mickey Boardman from Paper Magazine. But we really love him now, after reading this.

Even the fashion folk are obsessed with Susan Boyle.. See Nicola Formichetti’s blog… Is she the next Beth Ditto? (Read Jezebel’s take on our “shallow society)

Hilary Rhoda, Selita Ebanks, Eugenia Silva at the New Yorkers for Children event (they made the “Good” list).  Also, see Coco here with her perfect date.

For fans of top male model Evandro, click to see some behind the scenes video of his latest shoot.

Hairstylist Luigi Murenu named global creative consultant of John Frieda..Congrats Luigi!

According to WWD’s sources, Dolce & Gabbana F/W 09 (photographed by Steven Klein again) will include Madonna’s “sometime boy toy” Jesus Luz along with regulars David Gandy, Adam Senn and Noah Mills. A company spokesman “declined to comment on the rumors”.
