V Va Voom!

June 17th, 2010 |Posted by wayne

Sebastian Faena meets the legendary Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele in the next issue of V (No. 66!) and the result is a hot, pop-driven tabloid tinged 12 page fashion story that is so much fun it practically vibrates on the page. Celebrating the timely Argentinian concept of “botineras” or footballer’s wives (just in time for the World Cup), the gorgeous cast includes Eniko Mihalik, Dree Hemingway, Simon Nessman, Constance Jablonski, Alessandra Ambrosio, Maryna Linchuk, Martin Landgreve and Jacques Naude. We love the way photography, styling and graphic design all combine to sing the same sexy tune!

World Cup

What could be more exciting than many of the world’s top male models posing for VMan? It just may be all of them getting together getting for tomorrow’s Male Model World Cup sponsored by the mag. Some top faces scheduled to kick off the event: Mathias Lauridsen, Simon Nessman, Danny Schwarz, Oraine Barrett and many more (see full list below). We chatted with VMan editor Jacob Brown and found out the inspiration.

“I came up with this idea actually at Mathias Lauridsen’s birthday dinner. He was telling me about the league soccer he plays, and how so many of the guys are also very serious soccer players—a lot of them are from Europe and have played all their lives. One of us made a joke like, “Oh wouldn’t it be funny if there was a big tournament where all the models competed.” And then I realized that it would actually be a perfect event for VMAN to host. So Mathias and I started putting it together. He’s sort of the chairman of the tournament and has helped get the players together with the agencies. And Hummel, which is an athletic gear company from his home country of Denmark, hooked us up with uniforms and everything. We are shooting the tournament tomorrow of course, and we will be running photos of the winning team in the next VMAN. Stephen Gan and I are really excited about this tournament and plan on making the Male Model World Cup a yearly event!

Gorgeous, athletic and sweaty men… Doesn’t get better than that.

Rare is the brand that people get excited about in terms of fashion, imagery AND casting. Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci is one of those and for F/W 10, WWD gives us a preview of the campaign with one exciting and unexpected face.

Million Dollar Baby

April 15th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Alessandra Ambrosio might not be the obvious choice for a couture story, but in Vogue Russia the supermodel shows another side of her multifaceted persona. Joined by Simon Nessman and Oskar Tranum, Alessandra dons pieces from Gaultier and Givenchy as well as special boxing gear, all chosen by superstylist Katie Grand. The muted colors Alasdair McLellan uses for this edit, add a certain softness but Ale still manages to bring the heat.image10

Here’s a link to Golden Globe winner, Mo’Nique who dedicates her award to victims of child abuse. “”The number of victims who never reveal their secret or who wait many years to do so is very high. This is regrettable because the longer they wait to reveal the abuse, the harder and more enduring the consequences will be.”
