Women on the Verge

September 24th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

The British menswear magazine HERO has come a long way in just five short years. Since launching in 2008 with a cover story featuring Robbie Wadge, the publication has graduated to rising actors like Dane DeHaan and Bill Skarsgård, both shot by Hedi Slimane, and a uniquely incisive perspective on the fashion scene. Editors in chief Fabien Kruszelnicki and James West expand their portfolio this week with the launch of a women’s title, named, appropriately enough, HEROINE. “We’ve constantly been asked when a women’s version of HERO would be coming out,” Kruszelnicki and West explain, “and we have always known that we didn’t want to make a straight copy of HERO for women. HEROINE has a different vision, but with all of the same energy.”

That energy can be seen vibrantly throughout the inaugural issue, which can be seen in an exclusive preview below, starting with cover star Juno Temple, interviewed by Daniel Radcliffe. Paola Kudacki shoots the iconic Hilary Rhoda as the epitome of the “modern woman,” writer-slash-actress Brit Marling takes a starring role, and designer features on Saint Laurent, Paul Smith, and Balenciaga, find their place alongside a convergence of Prada with the artist Carsten Höller, who opens up his latest exhibition to the Fall collection. The emphasis throughout is on power and drive, two features that Kruszelnicki and West believe exemplify the HEROINE reader. “We really wanted to make a magazine that was intelligent, that blended fashion with current affairs, culture, and genuinely interesting interviews with strong, aspirational, driven women,” they say. “It’s about an attitude that transcends generations rather than trends, but we also love celebrating fashion and style. All of these things feed into a complete picture of modern society, coming together to represent a modern woman.”

More is More

May 9th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Director Sofia Coppola takes the reigns at W Magazine for a special summer supplement dedicated to her passions and inspirations. The gamine director has done stints as a model in the past and has long stood out as an icon of effortless style, so it’s interesting to see just what a magazine helmed by Coppola would look like. One of the most interesting features is a sumptuous fashion story by Roe Ethridge shot in the home of socialite Cornelia Guest. The pattern heavy and undeniably retro-luxe decor serves as the perfect backdrop for stylist Patrick Mackie (Management + Artists)’s selection of decadent swimwear and cover ups. Hilary Rhoda plays the role of society siren admirably and the editorial’s more is more ethos provides the issue with a welcome touch of maximalism.

mdc ♥s : All About Eyes

May 27th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Lily Donaldson has the most beautiful baby blues in the business | Image by Betty Sze for MDC

The eyes are the window to the soul and they’re often the first thing people pay attention to when they see us. All the more reason to pamper them with the right creams and adorn them with the very best shadows and liners. This week MDC rounds up our favorite beauty products for eyes, each one used frequently by members of our team. Be sure to let us know what your personal favorites are in the comments!

REN Active 7 Radiant Eye Maintenance Gel
This unique gel de-puffs the delicate under eye area quickly and effectively. Perfect for mornings when you’ve gotten less sleep than you should, or evenings spent out on the town. Dab a tiny bit of the cooling formula on any and all puffiness and prepare to be dazzled by the results. We’ve seen REN’s product pop up in many a makeup artist’s kit and we completely understand way. Added bonus, we love the purse friendly size of this product – great for touching up throughout the day.

skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
For those days when you really are in need of help, give sky ICELAND’s eye gels a try. The cooling pads can be placed beneath the eye area to reduce the appearance of puffiness, fine lines and broken blood vessels in 10 minutes. With the long and eventful party season fast approaching, these are sure to become a mainstay for anyone who had a little too much fun the night before.

Lancome Genifique Eye
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and Genifique’s formula offers care for those first signs of aging by stimulating the production of cells. The gel promises brighter, firmer skin in seven days and during that time we saw definite improvement in the texture and elasticity of the skin surrounding our delicate peepers. What can we say, if its good enough for spokeswoman Julia Restoin-Roifteld, it is good enough for us!

Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow
We tried and tested several different variety of cream eyeshadow, but Bobbi Brown’s was the absolute best. With a wide variety of colors as well as an unrivaled lasting power, these little shadow pots left us thoroughly impressed. Try a glittering pale shade like Pink Coral for day and deep dark shade like Black Pearl for an easy smoky eye when evening comes.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Shadows
Developed by Tom Pecheux and used on the likes of Hilary Rhoda and Liu Wen, this extensive range of colors and shades has enough variety to keep even the most voracious cosmetics fiends happy. Estee is all about quality, so the shadows are as long lasting and very easy to apply, whether you’ve got your own set of brushes or use the little applicator they come with. Our personal favorite shades were the glittering Emerald Star and Sizzling copper.

YSL Faux Cils Noir Radical
There are about a million mascaras on the market and we’ve tried them all (and have about 30 mascara tubes to prove it) Faux Cils was our favorite for the volumizing effect, lasting power and rich black color (Noir Radical is pure midnight black) that makes all eye colors stand out. Not in the mood for basic black – give brights like Extreme Blue and Fascinating Violet a try.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water

Hands down the very best and gentlest eye-makeup remover there is. Cuts through thick black liner and three coats of mascara without stinging your eyes, or leaving behind a streaky mess. Beloved by makeup artists, models and the team here for its speed and ease of use – plus  the ultra-portable wipes are wonderful for on the go!
