Nouveau Riche

July 22nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The exploits of the idle rich have long been a fashion obsession, but Venetia Scott offers a unique take on the subject. Sinking into 70s style imagery filled with feathered hair and bright colors Scott creates a sumptuous world of luxuriant excess. By serving as both photographer and stylist, Scott is able to fully realize her vision and every element of the story merges together so well that the shots could be actual stills from a late 70s film. Sporting a firecracker red wig and looking a bit like Karen Elson’s wicked twin, Malgosia Bela serves up style as the heroine of the tale. Malgosia’s chic presence elevates every shot, making this an especially entertaining tale.

First Look: Document No. 4

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

documentj

Many magazines set out to bridge the worlds of art and fashion, but few compare to the engaging volumes Document assembles with each issue. After last fall’s Paul McCarthy designed cover, Document’s offering for S/S 14 continues to combine arresting editorials, bastions of the contemporary art world, and vital conversations to provide a comprehensive window onto today’s cultural landscape.

Seeking “spontanaeity, authenticity, and simplicity,” Document No. 4 addresses authorship with photographer Nan Goldin, architecture with Brazil’s Carla Juaçaba, and diversity with Liya Kebede and Bethann Hardison. Elsewhere, fashion crossovers Willem Dafoe and Erykah Badu discuss unique presence in the respective worlds of cinema and music, while legends of style Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Joe McKenna (Art Partner) collide to discuss fashion past, present, and future.

As for the editorials, Document showcases top models Malgosia Bela and Freja Beha Erichsen on two different covers that illuminate each versatile beauty’s standalone presence. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby shoots Malgosia styled by Jodie Barnes in an array of guises that hit the season’s boldest trends. Exploring performance, photographer Collier Schorr captures Freja’s nuanced turn as a Method actor. The unstoppable Amanda Wellsh plays around before Alex Olson’s lens, Lily McMenamy styles herself for a profile of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, and things turn surreal when Camilla Akrans (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Management + Artists) shoots Missy Rayder. Not to be surpassed in the months between biannual issues, Document and photographer Christian MacDonald nominate 17 of spring’s most promising faces, all sporting pre-Fall looks styled by Document’s Fashion Director James Valeri.

Be on the lookout for Document No. 4, on newsstands now.

Ad Network

January 16th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

More fabulous fashion ads keep coming in, take a look at the latest.

TOM FORD

Tom Ford - Designer & Photographer | Orlando Pita - Hair Stylist | Charlotte Tilbury - Makeup Artist |Karlina Caune & Simon Van Meervenne - Models

We can always count on Tom Ford for an epitomized version of modern glamour and his latest campaign delivers with sleek shots by Ford himself of Karlina Caune and Simon Van Meervenne. Playing to his strengths the designer / photographer / director / provocateur creates simple images that focus on those decadent designs. Who needs exotic locations and complicated set ups when you have the beauty of those golden to the knee sandals and fringed shoes! Karlina and Simon look pretty damn good too, both models capture the slightly dangerous and oh so sexy vibe of Ford’s ethos.

 


ALEXANDER WANG


Alexander Wang
 - Designer | Steven Klein - Photographer | Pascal Dangin - Art Director | Malgosia Bela - Model

Given the memorable way Wang presented his S/S collection’s glow in the dark dresses, we were expecting a campaign with flashing lights, or blinding neons from Alexander Wang. Never one to go for the obvious thrill, Wang enlists Steven Klein and Pascal Dangin for an evocative campaign featuring the Malgosia Bela. The beauty of these images lies in the artistic way in which the clothing is presented: with her body painted in white and the stark backdrop, Malgosia looks more like a performance artist than a model. As the Wang label enters into its next stage of development this campaign provides a dynamic and eye-catching brand message.


KENZO

Jean Paul Goude - Photographer | Anthony Turner - Hair Stylist | Aaron de Mey - Makeup Artist | Humberto Leon & Carol Lim - Creative Directors | Jester White & Ming Xi - Models

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Kenzo’s F/W ads by Jean Paul Goude were arresting and upbeat – they even made our best of 2012 list and for S/S the saga continues with Ming Xi and Jester White picking up where things left off. We didn’t think it would be possible, but these ads are even more colorful and kooky than the first set.


AKRIS

Karim Sadli - Photographer | Anthony Turner - Hair Stylist | Hannah Murray - Makeup Artist | Alana Zimmer - Model

Karim Sadli shoots Akris’ understated S/S ads featuring Alana Zimmer. Akris has always been about luxury that whispers instead of shouts and Saldi does an excellent job of communicating that message visually. Albert Kriemler’s elegantly minimal designs look especially beautiful set against the lush green backdrop and Alana is as lovely as ever.


ROBERTO CAVALLI

Roberto Cavalli - Designer | Mario Testino  – Photographer | Marie Chaix - Fashion Editor/Stylist | Sam McKnight - Hair Stylist | Charlotte Tilbury - Makeup Artist | Jack Flanagan - Set Designer | Lorraine Griffin - Manicurist

Roberto Cavalli’s clothes are not for wallflowers, so it makes sense that the S/S campaign features three of the boldest and mostt compelling models around. Isabeli Fontana, Malgosia Bela and Sui He star in Mario Testino‘s kinetic images filled with bold prints, saturated colors and the brand’s signature in your face opulence.

Big Timers

September 27th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Karim Sadli shoots an impressive play on proportion for The Gentlewoman. The elegant black and white story stars the always effervescent, Malgosia Bela and features a variety of oversized pieces, selected by Jonathan Kaye (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) that serve as understated necessities. The clothes don’t call attention to themselves, yet they remain essentials – reminds us of a certain iconic model and an oh so cool publication.

Westward Bound

The modeling enigma goes west in Kadel’s cinematic editorial. Wearing the season’s finery with unmatched flair, Malgosia sports a array of key looks – none of which fall into cowboy cliche. The Havana Laffitte selected pieces, range from space age Alexander McQueen, to austere Celine, but each look comes alive in the story and accompanying video – watch on Vogue.es

First Look: Antidote’s Icons

May 3rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Who are the modern modeling icons? Tough question, but Antidote Magazine offers their take on iconic women with 8 new covers featuring models from different generations who have made a fashion impact. Shot by Jan Welters, with creative direction by Yann Weber, the images are elegant and evocative, as is Welter’s corresponding video. Who doesn’t love a great shot of a beautiful girl in a white gown?

The cast selection is sure to stir up a fair amount of debate; no one can argue that Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova and Malgosia Bela aren’t iconic, but do you think relative newcomers Saskia de Brauw and Lindsey Wixson are worthy of the title? We already know some people are lobbying for Natasha Poly on the icons list, but how do you feel about the inclusion of the stunning Bianca Balti & Aymeline Valade?

Four Visions

March 29th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Unless you’ve placed yourself on a magazine ban, or been living beneath the safety of a rock, you’ve heard the murmurs about Vogue Paris losing its edge. Whether it is blog posts about lackluster covers, or tFS rumblings, it feels like everyone has an opinion on the excitement level (or lack there of) in the post Carine Roitfeld era.

While we admit to missing the sexed up, controversy courting, boundary pushing days of Mme. Roitfeld, the Emmanuelle Alt helmed VP has its high points - Wham lipsync moment non-withstanding. April’s issue features a striking beauty story by Karim Sadli, featuring Malgosia Bela reinvented by four of the top young talents in hair & makeup. Anthony Turner, Lucia Pica, Yadim & James Pecis create a series of strong, attention grabbing looks for Malgosia that showcase their creativity and modern views of what a striking editorial look can be — how’s that for excitement.
