Celestial Bodies

March 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott pay tribute to the world’s best bodies in the pages of Vogue‘s Shape Issue, with an understated editorial styled by Tonne Goodman. When you have Natalia Vodianova, Joan Smalls, Daria Werbowy, Gisele Bundchen, Raquel Zimmermann and Lara Stone all in one story, little else needs to be done so M&M tone down their signature theatrics and let the beauty of each girl and Lisa Butler‘s natural makeup shine through.

The September Issues Pt. 2

August 17th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

September’s issues keep flooding in and each one brings something special to the table, here is a look at a few more fall fashion magazines guaranteed to catch your eye on the newsstand. Let us know which ones are your favorite!

Liu Wen snags the debut issue of Numero China with two stellar covers. Note that this is the first Numero debut issue that doesn’t feature Kate Moss, a major coup for Liu and a great salute to the incredible fashion talent in China.

September’s Vogue Russia is a bittersweet affair, it is the final issue under the direction of editor Aliona Doletskaya. As always the cover is phenomenal, with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shooting Natalia Vodianova in their signature surrealist style.

Vogue Germany goes for high energy with a great shot of a logo covered Constance Jablonski, by Greg Kadel. The shopping theme gets right to the point and Constance shines in multiple editorials inside the magazine itself.

Collaborative Arts

July 26th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Notice how many of F/Ws fashion ads involve collaborations with contemporary artists? Stella McCartney enlists artist Barry Reigate to illustrate the otherwise minimalist ads starring Natalia Vodianova and shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott , the cartoonish style fits with McCartney’s quirky image and is slightly reminiscent of last seasons Disneyfied ads with Sigrid Agren.

Bottega Venetta has Robert Longo all but recreate the look of his classic ‘Men In Cities’ series, only with Alla Kostromichova and Terron Wood doing all the movements.

Not to be outdone, Missoni goes all out with a mini-film by experimental filmmaker, Kenneth Anger; the bold and trippy clip (watch it in its entirety here) features Margherita Missoni and a host of others.

The Face

June 7th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The age of the campaign exclusive returns, with Lara Stone snagging the fall ads for Calvin Klein Collection, ck Calvin Klein and Calvin Klein Jeans. While the Calvin brand has always been known for its use of signature faces, from Brooke Shields to Kate Moss, Natalia Vodianova and Christy Turlington, this is the first time since Natalia’s reign, that the brand has chosen one face to represent its image across three lines. Given the iconic status of CK’s previous models and Ms. Stone’s seemingly unstoppable world domination, there is no question that Lara will soon be a household name.

Another reason to love Natalia Vodianova. Behind that angel face is the heart of a warrior, determined to do as much as she can to help the children of the world through the power of her beauty. Here’s her new project, Bugaboo Red which helps pregnant women with HIV. “These days, if you don’t take a socially responsible position, you’re out of the club,” says Natalia. We couldn’t agree more!

Congratulations Lara Stone and David Walliams! We are so happy for Lara who got married this weekend in a gorgeous dress by Riccardo Tisci. Check out some pics of friends on British Vogue who include Tom Ford and Jefferson Hack.

Michelle Lee, casting director extraordinaire talks to WWD about the casting process and her favorite new faces of the season.

On a sombre note, Jezebel looks at the terribly sad trend of model suicides, in the wake of Noemie Lenoir‘s suicide attempt. Look for our upcoming special interview with a top model about this topic.

Take a look at Gisele when she started out. House of Models has 2 pics side by side of Gisele 15 years ago and Gisele now. Still drop dead gorgeous!

Remember the beautiful Gail Elliott from the 90s? Frockwriter reviews her Little Joe line which appeared for the first time at the Sydney shows.

The uniquely stunning Eve Salvail is interviewed by Ponyryder.

Check out these adorable new faces videos from Folio in Canada. Shows that simple is sometimes so much better.

Don’t all you models wish you had a fan like this?

“The perfect example of having a lot of money to spend but not knowing what to do with it.” OUCH!

Model Hildie G is one of Paul Rowland’s new fabulous faces for Ford. She may be the antithesis of what Eileen Ford would have liked.

Speaking of Ford, how cute is the new V Man/Ford Model contest winner, Michael Wozniak in this video by Ford?
