Dansk‘s vision for fall is minimal, modern and utterly sleek, their September cover by Henrik Bulow features Caroline Brasch Nielsen, looking icy in a slate grey shift by Danish label Spon Diogo. The barely there tagline of ‘modesty’ hints at an unostentatious and stripped down look, but the images inside are just as lush and vibrant as we’ve come to expect from Dansk; Charlie France‘s elegant shoot with Lowe Seger and Missy Rayder‘s sexy pics styled by Joanne Blades, being standouts.

Hey, any chance to post pictures of modeling legend, Kristen McNemany, I will take it. This photo is the exact reason why Calvin Klein will always be relevant. The embrace of the legendary (Kristen) with a modern day beauty (Doutzen) shows how the brand will always keep you guessing.


A BIG bits & Bytes: some news is old, some is new, catching people up from fashion week!

Modeling info:

Our incredible Wayne Sterling expounds on the meaning of walking the runways of today.

Looking for the new Black “IT” girl are Elite Models and Essence Magazine.

Missy Rayder, naked and beautiful for V Magazine’s video.

Benetton‘s next campaign face.. it could be you!

Coco Rocha, we adore you! Here she talks, uncensored about the NY Times/Daily News “stories” on her being considered “fat”.

Speaking of Coco, Hilary Rhoda interviews Coco, on Fashion Week Daily.

Ponyryder had 3 stellar interviews with the wonderful Amanda Norgaard, Love magazine cover star Jeneil Williams and Prada opener and closer, Samantha Gradoville.

Arlenis Sosa for Latina Magazine at a party sponsored by Lancome (see pic below). Kind of a big deal as past covergirls have been Jennifer Lopez and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayer. Arlenis talks about how black models need to stick together.

Male models should tremble. Zoolander 2 is in the works.

Another evil and unkind moment in the fashion industry. Frockwriter dissects the mess about Gemma Ward.


How do you get started in fashion photography? Tips from the experts are right here.

For female photographers only, here is eye opening advice from A Photo Editor.

Fashionista talks to a Getty photographer. shows that Trovata designer John Whitledge, takes a pretty mean picture as well… See his Fashion Week diary with Erin Wasson and Kirsten Dunst.

Fashion and miscellaneous:

LVMH-owned E Luxury is gone, only to be replaced by the Nowness. With that kind of backing, that website should be quite interesting.

One of our favorite casting directors, Daniel Peddle, was featured on the NY Times’ the Moment during Fashion Week (if you missed it!)

Also: if you missed from fashion week…. Incredible insights on from Cathy Horyn and Robert Duffy from Marc Jacobs on the state of the fashion industry.‘s interview with Hedi Slimane. Does he go back to designing? Find out….

Vogue Italia, Vogue Black and Vogue Curvy. Yes, we wish they were one, but hey, at least the dialogue is starting. (The Cut via Jezebel).

Speaking of Vogue, Jezebel talks about how those cover lines are made up (edited out from the September issue). It’s pretty darn funny.

Fashion Week Daily has a deleted scene from the September Issue where Karl Lagerfeld separates us from them (my words not his). Another hilarous moment from Karl.

Lancome sponsored Latina Magazine party: Arlenis (in Alexander Wang) with fellow Dominicans, Kat De Luna and Julissa Bermudez. (Image: Patrick McMullen Co, courtesy of Lancome)

Bare Essentials

June 3rd, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Doug Porter and Missy Rayder take a clothing optional approach in the latest Numero with a revealing editorial by Matthias Vriens. Are you feeling the heat of the bare it all editorial or do you prefer a little something left to the imagination?

Excuse Me Missy

May 28th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The last issue of Mixte reminds us of why the magazine was essential in the first place. Covergirl Missy Rayder vamps for Xevi Muntane in a black and white series that revels in sensuality. With her dynamic poses and regal presence Missy is a natural when it comes to expressing this kind of haute sexiness.

Erotica, Romance

April 28th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is something truly haunting about Daniel Jackson‘s Acne Paper portfolio of sensual faces. We teased you with a preview of Linda Vojtova‘s seductive shot but the whole story is just as good. Iris Strubegger, Sessilee Lopez, Anne Vyalitsyna, Adam Lundberg, Oraine Barrett, Diana Dondoe, Missy Rayder, Liu Wen, Alyssa Miller and Marina Perez each capture the right mix of refinement and carnality while Jackson’s dramatic use of lighting and color take the story to that next level. Many fashion stories attempt the erotic but few move beyond stereotypical “sexy” pictures and towards a deeper reflection on just what is desirable.

Paper Pursuits

April 16th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There are more magazines on newsstands than ever before but only a few really attain that coveted “need it now” status. This month we’re looking forward to the latest issue of Acne Paper featuring a blindfolded and carefully coiffed  Missy Rayder shot by Daniel Jackson. What lies beneath the mask and the instantly memorable cover – only time will tell but Missy’s seductive pose leaves us wanting more.

Apparently Gareth Pugh is definitely headed to Dior Homme.
