Crown of Fire

July 24th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Modeling holds a special place for redheads – some of fashion’s finest names have fiery locks naturally and even more have experimented with the color on a temporary basis. American Vogue pays tribute to the loveliest and most notable redheads in a special portfolio by Annie Leibovitz that features appealing gingers from the worlds of film, sport and of course modeling. With fashion’s most famous ginger Grace Coddington serving as stylist and Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Aaron de Mey (Art Partner) handling hair and makeup respectively, the editorial is a beautiful showcase for the respective stars and their crowning glories. Naturally, Karen Elson makes the list, but so does fresh face Madison Stubbington.

First Look: Self Service+Gisele

September 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The legendary Ms. Bundchen looks better than ever on the cover of the new Self Service Roe Ethridge‘s elegant, stripped down shots capture Gisele’s natural beauty, freckles and all. The barely there makeup by Aaron de Mey and hair by Recine help, but the allure is pure Bundchen! Dressed in sleek seasonal styles by Balenciaga, Céline and Kenzo, selected by none other than Marie Chaix, Gisele looks every inch the supermodel.

Deja Vu : Food for Thought

April 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Richard Burbridge‘s latest over the top story for New York Times Magazine celebrates the season’s candy colored dresses & bold fruit prints, with a festive food meets fashion series of images. The idea is simple – take the plum prints on a Dolce & Gabbana dress and serve them with a side of fruit salad for good measure – but the magic is all in the execution. Robbie Spencer‘s styling on this story is nothing short of amazing – though we do wonder if he was the one picking up the cart at Whole Foods in addition to selecting the stellar designer looks. Hanne Gaby Odiele and Julia Nobis bring the concept to life with animated posing and the occasional taste of sweetness.

The story got us thinking about all the other time’s we’ve seen fashion and food collide. Though we prefer our meals on a plate something has to be said for the unexpected art that comes about when you re-imagine what every day items can do. Have a trip down memory lane and see some of our  favorite food meets fashion combos.

There is a Dolce & Gabbana dress hiding beneath all that produce.

Even if you didn’t notice the lobsters, this would be an epic shot.

Viktor & Rolf‘s decadent designs get coated in candy – very fitting!

Artist Sung Yeon Ju‘s Wearable Foods series (2009-2010) featured clothing crafted out of materials like banana peels and slices of eggplant.

2010 Kirsi Pyrhonen wore lettuce as a fashion statement in images by Magnus Unnar for the Barneys holiday catalog.

Who can forget that meat dresses Lady Gaga wore on the red carpet & the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan in 2010 – also designed by Sung Yeon Ju!

Cintia Dicker delights in a dress full of M&Ms in Ryan Yoon‘s shoot for Virgine Magazine - 2010

And now for something you can actually put in your mouth. How about some Chanel & Christian Louboutin cupcakes? Prop stylist Lisa Edsalv and photographer Therese Aldgard collaborated on these and we’re petitioning Aaron de MeyKarl Lagerfeld to get them in stores.

Voguette

June 20th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

The seemingly unstoppable Daphne Groeneveld strikes again: the Dutch beauty’s striking Vogue Japan cover by Mario Sorrenti has her sporting a furry look from Miu Miu, a center part by crafted by Recine and a pair of seriously bleached brows. George Cortina‘s styling and subtle makeup by Aaron de Mey keep the picture sweet, but Daphne’s trademark glare prevents things from getting sugary.

Holy Smoke

September 3rd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Think you’ve seen it all when it comes to editorials? Prepare to brace yourself for V67 (on newsstands now), in it Mario Sorrenti channels Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s cult classic, The Holy Mountain, for an editorial heavy on symbolism and sex. Natasha Poly stars in Sorrenti’s colorful photographs and dominates every picture she is in – whether she is spraying Mario with milk or looking like a deity come to life courtesy of Aaron de Mey‘s striking makeup, Ms. Poly owns this story. Sorrenti’s eye-catching images are sure to stay with you – especially the ones where he inserts himself into the story.
