Age of Innocence

July 16th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

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 and pick up the issue on newsstands now!

Kate’s Allure

July 16th, 2013 |Posted by

Allure Magazine breaks away from its usual cover model comfort zone of A-list actresses this month, by featuring a model on its August cover. And we’re not just talking any model here, we’re talking about none other than Kate Moss. The magazine hasn’t featured a high fashion model on its cover in nearly 10 years (Project Runway host Heidi Klum‘s May 2012 cover notwithstanding) so it only makes sense for the iconic Moss to land the first supermodel cover in years. Moss’s gorgeous cover shot is captivating, proving she still has that same spark from when she first got her big break over 20 years ago.

Photographer: Mario Testino | Creative Director – Paul Cavaco | Hair – Sam McKnight | Makeup – Tom Pecheux

Bits and Bytes: Olivier by J&J

July 15th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Pictures like these are why we are in love with Jak & Jil.


Andres Velencoso Segura is very tall and Kylie Minogue is so very short but they are a totally cute couple.

Uh, hello, young aspiring actors and models… Read about Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe and his interview with an 11 year old reporter and take lessons on being a true star in our book: being classy and kind.

Of the big American fashion mags, it looks like the only model cover will be Kate Moss for W Magazine and former model Charlize Theron for American Vogue. Sad. Click here for the other blondes.

Supermodel baby bump watch… first Heidi Klum, then Adriana Lima, possibly Gisele Bundchen and now Karolina Kurkova. There is something in the VS water.

Tragic news… Dash Snow, artist and fashion world denizen passes away this week. Our hearts go out to his family and especially his young daughter.

For our young feminist models, there’s a new teen blog out there!

In big picture news, iconic designer Issey Miyake talks for the first time of surviving the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Why now? He was inspired by Obama’s speech in Prague.

They’re already talking about Spring/Summer 2010 campaigns! Pringle! Tilda Swinton! Ryan McGinley! Click here to read more.

Brana Wolf beautifully styles the latest looks in Bazaar and makes it totally wearable.

Ponyryder hits another out of the ballpark, this time with a chat with top model Toni Garrn.

Bits and Bytes: RIP MJ

To so many people Michael Jackson was an icon of pop culture. To those of us who came of age in the 80’s, Michael was a part of our lives. It was as simple as that. For all the turmoil of his later years, he will always be remembered for his musical genius and his fashion forwardness.


In other sad news, American actress Farrah Fawcett succumbs to cancer.  James from Women Management has a touching tribute to the beautiful girl from Texas, celebrated in the Vogue cover below.

Speaking of class acts, it would be good for today’s aspiring models and actors to learn some lessons from Johnny Depp.

Activist and model Summer Rayne has a shoe line!

Heidi Klum as Barbie. Looks the same we think!

How strange, male models looking… not so serious. Who is it? Ryan Taylor, the king of the runway several years ago is back and available and smiling for Iceberg.

The September Issue is previewed and it looks to be totally dishy. It can’t get here fast enough for us.

Want the whole scoop of the turmoil at Interview Magazine? WWD has it all, from clashing egos to shoots that ran $100,000 over budget.

Bits and Bytes: From rooftop to runway

June 24th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Seems like a mere 15 minutes ago, Jean Carlos was shooting his first tests in New York on a rooftop. This week, the Brazilian so popular with the fashion bloggers walked some of the big runways in Milan, including DSquared2, CP Company, Etro and Giorgio Armani.


If you adore Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Marisa Miller, Adriana Lima, Selita Ebanks, Miranda Kerr, Behati Prinsloo and Doutzen Kroes, then go to Victoria’s Secret’s Facebook page.

Surprise! Jamie Dornan, in 3 of the season’s Calvin Klein campaigns, says he’s never done a runway show.

The Milan men’s shows had some breathing room, thanks to the recession.

Frockwriter talks about the “Hedi Sliminization” of fashion and here’s the Guy Trebay NY Times article on AJ Abualrub dropping 30 pounds for the shows. Much has been made of him saying he eats twice a day; not that we are condoning that but all we can say is when we were in our teens, we had totally bad habits like eating twice a day too.

Watch Jil Sander, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli all here and Burberry, Zegna and Dolce & Gabbana here.

Helmut Newton‘s Sumo re-released!

For his S/S 10 show, Alexander McQueen does a film instead with David Sims.

Here’s another hilarious look by Jezebel at male models in vintage catalogs. All we can say is the male model and what they wear sure has changed!

Sans Artifice likes the Jil Sander collection and we do too!

Bits and Bytes: The Divine Raquel

Here’s a first look at Raquel Zimmermann‘s blonde hair. Ph: Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for Vogue Nippon/Japan July 09. scan by surreal 7 on tFS (via fashionologie).


Baby Bump Watch: Is 2009 the year the VS Angels (both former and current) all have little darlings on the way? Heidi Klum seems to have started a trend; Adriana Lima is now pregnant, with rumors that Gisele Bundchen may also be expecting. Just so the sexy Europeans don’t get left out, Laetitia Casta has her 3rd on the way.

The Imagist muses about the future of the men’s modeling market

One Management interviews photographer and film maker KT Auleta.

As all the major designers are now putting out resort lines, here’s a look at YSL’s on Sans Artifice.

C’mon fashion people. Times are tough but you don’t have it as tough as these guys. You can support a great cause as well as get some cool discounts/ freebies yourself.

Speaking of charities, MDC is helping to sponsor one! The event, for One Image Charity, is tomorrow and it helps raise awareness about children living on the streets in Haiti and the Philippines. Come by or bid on one of the beautiful images.
