Super Secret

April 2nd, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

Though she became a household name for her Victoria’s Secret persona, Adriana Lima continues to prove it takes more than swimwear to standout at the top. In her cover story for Interview Germany April 2014, the supermodel mainstay is as bold as ever in graphic black and white. Minimal in styles by Julia von Boehm, Adriana’s magnetic gaze and edgy poses captivate under photographer Robbie Fimmano’s stark shadow play.

A Mother’s Story

May 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Supermodel Adriana Lima shares a story of hope and perseverance that should resonate with everyone this mother’s day. The model mom and humanitarian travels to Haiti and visit’s St. Damien & St. Luke Hospitals to see the country’s maternity prpgrams and spend time with fellow expecting moms. What she discovered was inspiring – take a look at this special piece Lima wrote for the Huffington Post to learn more.


St. Damiens, A Mother’s Story by Adriana Lima

In a country where one out of 37 women is at risk of dying form pregnancy related causes during her reproductive years, St. Damien’s and St. Luke’s are ensuring that women have access to the care that they need both during and after their pregnancy. St. Damien’s maternity unit, led by Haitian OB/GYN Doctor Aupont, performs 500 births per month, many of them high risk, low birth weight children that are given place in their neonatal program. Walking into the neonatology unit, I was overcome at the site of these beautiful babies. It made me think of my own experience as a mother, made me appreciate how delicate these little lives are, and made me grateful for the work being done to fight for and protect them.

Pictures like these are why we are in love with Jak & Jil.

____________________________________________

Andres Velencoso Segura is very tall and Kylie Minogue is so very short but they are a totally cute couple.

Uh, hello, young aspiring actors and models… Read about Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe and his interview with an 11 year old reporter and take lessons on being a true star in our book: being classy and kind.

Of the big American fashion mags, it looks like the only model cover will be Kate Moss for W Magazine and former model Charlize Theron for American Vogue. Sad. Click here for the other blondes.

Supermodel baby bump watch… first Heidi Klum, then Adriana Lima, possibly Gisele Bundchen and now Karolina Kurkova. There is something in the VS water.

Tragic news… Dash Snow, artist and fashion world denizen passes away this week. Our hearts go out to his family and especially his young daughter.

For our young feminist models, there’s a new teen blog out there!

In big picture news, iconic designer Issey Miyake talks for the first time of surviving the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Why now? He was inspired by Obama’s speech in Prague.

They’re already talking about Spring/Summer 2010 campaigns! Pringle! Tilda Swinton! Ryan McGinley! Click here to read more.

Brana Wolf beautifully styles the latest looks in Bazaar and makes it totally wearable.

Ponyryder hits another out of the ballpark, this time with a chat with top model Toni Garrn.

Campaign Contributions

July 15th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The F/W campaigns continue to emerge and with each new ad there is something different to take in. Myf Shepherd and Olga Sherer don fedoras for Sonia Rykiel’s girlish campaign while Anja Rubik reprises her role as face of Giuseppe Zanotti in the Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helmed campaign. The Eastern bloc power trio of Sasha Pivovarova, Anna Selezneva and Natasha Poly take on Phi this season in a series of  Steven Meisel images that looks very supermodel. Last but certainly not least, Jessica Stam‘s feline beauty shines for Fendi. Karl Lagerfelds smoky shots of Stam looking elegant are an unexpected treat.

Which campaigns have stood out for you this season?

Bits and Bytes: From rooftop to runway

June 24th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Jean Carlos at DSquared2, S/S10. Image from Made in Brazil. With MC2 Model Management.

Seems like a mere 15 minutes ago, Jean Carlos was shooting his first tests in New York on a rooftop. This week, the Brazilian so popular with the fashion bloggers walked some of the big runways in Milan, including DSquared2, CP Company, Etro and Giorgio Armani.

—————————————

If you adore Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Marisa Miller, Adriana Lima, Selita Ebanks, Miranda Kerr, Behati Prinsloo and Doutzen Kroes, then go to Victoria’s Secret’s Facebook page.

Surprise! Jamie Dornan, in 3 of the season’s Calvin Klein campaigns, says he’s never done a runway show.

The Milan men’s shows had some breathing room, thanks to the recession.

Frockwriter talks about the “Hedi Sliminization” of fashion and here’s the Guy Trebay NY Times article on AJ Abualrub dropping 30 pounds for the shows. Much has been made of him saying he eats twice a day; not that we are condoning that but all we can say is when we were in our teens, we had totally bad habits like eating twice a day too.

Watch Jil Sander, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli all here and Burberry, Zegna and Dolce & Gabbana here.

Helmut Newton‘s Sumo re-released!

For his S/S 10 show, Alexander McQueen does a film instead with David Sims.

Here’s another hilarious look by Jezebel at male models in vintage catalogs. All we can say is the male model and what they wear sure has changed!

Sans Artifice likes the Jil Sander collection and we do too!
