Crown of Fire

July 24th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Modeling holds a special place for redheads – some of fashion’s finest names have fiery locks naturally and even more have experimented with the color on a temporary basis. American Vogue pays tribute to the loveliest and most notable redheads in a special portfolio by Annie Leibovitz that features appealing gingers from the worlds of film, sport and of course modeling. With fashion’s most famous ginger Grace Coddington serving as stylist and Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Aaron de Mey (Art Partner) handling hair and makeup respectively, the editorial is a beautiful showcase for the respective stars and their crowning glories. Naturally, Karen Elson makes the list, but so does fresh face Madison Stubbington.

Jason Wu’s Four Seasons

June 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

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.

Supersize Me

June 9th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When Jeremy Scott‘s exuberant vision for Moschino premiered on the fall runways the collection provided fashion fans with a tongue in cheek take on consumerism via fast food logos and larger than life slogans. For the corresponding campaign Scott’s outlandish clothes are balanced by elegant Steven Meisel shots of the biggest supermodels. Linda Evangelista, Carolyn Murphy, Raquel Zimmermann, Stella Tennant, Karen Elson and Saskia de Brauw feature in Meisel’s chic black and white portraits appearing chic even while clutching Big Mac bags and blingy baseball caps. With its mix of high and low, humorous and haute the campaign is a perfect representation of the Moschino ethos.

Wu’s Women

December 18th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It wouldn’t be campaign season without the sight of Jason Wu enjoying a meal with a supermodel. This season the lovely lady is Karen Elson and the locale is Indochine! Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and art directed by Patrick Li, the campaign is a winning addition to a stellar series. Clad in slinky dresses from Wu’s elegant spring showing Karen captures the allure of the Wu woman – sexy, modern and always ready for an evening on the town.

Class Acts

April 10th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When in doubt, go for elegance. The latest ad campaigns eschew gimmicks and rely instead on the kind of classic polish that never goes out of style. Bastion of uptown chic Tiffany & Co. enlists the new generation of top models in a stylish campaign by Michael Thompson that puts those fabulous jewels on superstars Liya Kebede,Liu Wen, Arizona Muse, Karen Elson and Doutzen Kroes. The stunning cast adds a touch of freshness to one of luxury’s oldest names, while Thompson’s graceful shots show the timeless appeal of gemstones.

Prada’s pre-fall shots are every bit as beautiful, but there is a hint of edge in Steven Meisel‘s minimal studio shots. Irene HiemstraAmanda Murphy and Vanessa Axente look pristine in Meisel’s imagery and the pared down collection provides a down to earth, yet wholeheartedly Miuccia take on seasonal dressing. What could be more classic than a whole lot of gingham and a good ol’ fashioned statement bag?
