A Tale of Two Kates

November 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Lately it seems like everyone has an opinion on Kate Upton and usually it is a strong one. There are those who say she’s bringing classic curvaceousness back to fashion, those who find her nouveau-pinup schtick grating and of course there are her legions of adoring fans. Fortunately, the only opinions that matter at the end of the day are those of the photographers, stylists and editors who keep falling under her spell. The latest Uptonite is of course Steven Meisel, a man who knows a thing or two about what makes a model great. Meisel features Kate’s ample charms in the latest issues of Vogue Italia and American Vogue, a feat that would be a coup for any model, but for Upton it takes on a special signifigance. Love her or hate her she’s sticking around and is going to be a part of some beautiful imagery.

Speaking controversial Kates, the one and only Kate Moss surfaces on the cover of Vanity Fair looking resplendent in new shots from Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. It is rare for VF to feature living celebrities on their covers, but that is a testament to Moss’ enduring crossover appeal – even those with no interest in fashion know the legend and mystique that is Kate. Odds are that many of those same people will be lining up to find out more about Miss Moss when her autobiography / picture tome hits bookstores. Kate has always maintained an air of mystery (this is the woman who famously gave one word answers in a post-scandal interview) but she sets the record straight on certain subjects in VF, which makes this a must read.

Centrefold

October 19th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Combine the model star power of Storm Model Management, the cutting-edge art direction of Plus Agency  and what do you get? A luxurious and inventive fashion glossy, designed with “print addicts” in mind. Centrefold Magazine  has always delivered an impressive array of editorial delights, but this issue takes things one step further with a jam packed assortment of epic beauties and high profile photographers. The resplendent Kate Moss graces the cover and oozes aloof sex appeal like in Venetia Scott‘s editorial, while Cindy Crawford looks better than ever in classic black and white images. The fun doesn’t stop there of course, everyone from Andrej Pejic, Liberty Ross to Lily ColeJourdan DunnEva Herzigova and Cara Delevingne has a chance to shine.

Blast from the Past: Supermodels Singing

April 4th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

We all know models like Karen Elson and Baptiste Giabiconi are all about their music careers, but here are a few nostalgic musical moments from the past featuring fashion personalities.

Naomi Campbell – All Through The Night + Love & Tears

Before she became an editor at Interview Russia, Naomi tried her hand at a music career with the release of her 1994 album, Babywoman. On the album Naomi covers Donna Summer’s classic All Through the Night and she sounds pretty damn good. The album wasn’t exactly a smash hit and Naomi hasn’t released another since, but we’ll always have this and of course the video for Love & Tears.

Tyra Banks – Shake Ya Body

Who can forget this masterpiece of modern reality television and autotune. Not only did Tyra record a song, she managed to make the video’s creation a subplot on America’s Next Top Model. For the non-moguls out there that is what they call they call multi-tasking!

Milla Jovovich – The Gentleman Who Fell

When she isn’t posing for campaigns or fighting zombies (or both – there are moments when those situations mix) Milla J is busy making music. Her album The Divine Comedy – also released in 1994, clearly the peak year for supermodel album sales – was praised by critics. Though she hasn’t come out with a full album since, Milla frequently releases MP3s on her website.

Joe McKenna – Cha Cha at the Opera

Ok. Ok. Joe isn’t technically a supermodel but you know what, this clip is priceless all the same.

Putting On The Ritz

March 19th, 2012 |Posted by models.com

American Vogue
Tim Walker
Grace Coddington
Kate Moss
Julien d’Ys Stephane Marais

Queen Kate returns to her throne at Paris’ eternal hotspot, The Ritz and she brings along a few friends with her. Walker creates a surreal vision of opulence taking full advantage of the hotel’s regal redesign and all the world’s finest couture. Kate looks majestic and her ladies in waiting, Josephine Skriver, Mirte Maas, Patricia van der Vliet, and Sigrid Agren are a dream. We know J.Lo snagged the cover of Vogue’s shape issue but with a story this good inside, we can’t help but wish Kate was on Vogue’s front page this month instead.

Graffiti Bridge

November 17th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

With all the excitement over the 20 covers, it is easy to forget that there’s plenty of beautiful images inside the Dazed & Confused‘s Anniversary issue. Magazine co-founder Rankin shoots Josephine Skriver in a series of bright looks selected by Katie Shillingford and punctuated with a touch of spray paint. Inspired by his favorite shoot for Dazed, a graffiti themed story from 1998 starring Kate Moss.

Mrs. Hince

July 5th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

British Vogue‘s latest issue is all about new beginnings so who better to grace the cover than new bride, Kate Moss aka Mrs. Jamie Hince. Shot by her friend and longtime collaborator Mario Testino, Kate takes on the guise of an elegant doyenne – a look worlds away from Moss’ bohemian brand of chic.
