Mas Sexy

June 22nd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The battle for sexiest model continues and you better believe that Adriana Lima isn’t giving up the title without a fight. V Spain showcases the supermodel’s sensuous side with an alluring cover by Mario Sorrenti. The combination of Adriana’s come hither gaze, the barely there lingerie and Sorrenti’s signature slinky style, makes for a powerful image.

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!

Bits and Bytes: Pirelli 2010

June 18th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Behind the scenes, Eniko Mihalik on a water buffalo

And what everyone’s been waiting for, the 2009 Pirelli Calendar by Terry Richardson. Italian Vanity Fair has the preview with the full cast (casting by Jennifer Starr). Fashionologie via Italian Vanity Fair.

———————————————–

One of our favorite stylists, Nicola Formichetti is featured on the Cut.

We’re all for more inclusiveness (British Vogue’s Alexander Schulman tackles the size 0 problem). Here’s Jezebel’s interesting take on it.

Here’s another interview for the Brazilian fans.. the very lovely Izabel Goulart.

Funny, funny, funny; French Vogue is “anti-pants” so says Jezebel.

There’s a new documentary coming out about Brazilian models. Though sadly it’s in Portugese only, who cares when you can look the gorgeous Gisele Bundchen, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana, Caroline Trentini, Adriana Lima and Caroline Ribeiro emote in their native language. (Take a peek at rarely seen Cyril Brule, owner of Viva and Marilyn Gauthier, owner of Marilyn’s and photographer Peter Beard).

If you don’t know JD Ferguson‘s background, read about the model/photographer/general man about town and his fun times with Karl Lagerfeld and the top models.

Sans Artifice is a fan of photographer Norman Jean Roy,  he “brings out the Vogue ethos“.

New Dutch model agency to watch! Modelution is featured on the Ones2Watch.
Continuing in the same vein as Sarah Ziff in Picture Me, Frockwriter explores the dark side of the industry.
Gisele AND Jesus on the same runway…. The Brazilians are buzzing about the Colcci show.

If you’re in Chicago, Wednesday June 24th, go meet Elite Chicago’s scouts (click on the link for age and height requirements).

Home of Johanna Knepper (hot new face of Givenchy show this past spring), Just WM Paris has a  new blog! 

Terry shooting the 11 beauties;  Eniko Mihalik, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Daisy Lowe, Gracie Carvalho, Marloes Horst, Lily Cole, Ana Beatriz Barros, Miranda Kerr, Georgina Stojiljkovic.

May 27th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Here’s a first look at Raquel Zimmermann‘s blonde hair. Ph: Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for Vogue Nippon/Japan July 09. scan by surreal 7 on tFS (via fashionologie).

—————-

Baby Bump Watch: Is 2009 the year the VS Angels (both former and current) all have little darlings on the way? Heidi Klum seems to have started a trend; Adriana Lima is now pregnant, with rumors that Gisele Bundchen may also be expecting. Just so the sexy Europeans don’t get left out, Laetitia Casta has her 3rd on the way.

The Imagist muses about the future of the men’s modeling market

One Management interviews photographer and film maker KT Auleta.

As all the major designers are now putting out resort lines, here’s a look at YSL’s on Sans Artifice.

C’mon fashion people. Times are tough but you don’t have it as tough as these guys. You can support a great cause as well as get some cool discounts/ freebies yourself.

Speaking of charities, MDC is helping to sponsor one! The event, for One Image Charity, is tomorrow and it helps raise awareness about children living on the streets in Haiti and the Philippines. Come by or bid on one of the beautiful images.
