The Last Magazine Makes It Personal

March 24th, 2016 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

The Last Magazine always plays up to its position as the authority on cool and the latest large-format issue gives a spotlight to the leading model beauties strikingly captured in their element. Fashion, art, and culture meet head-on in the glossy pages with profiles on the global up-and-coming personalities you need to know like musician Moses Sumney, chef Daniel Berlin, and photographer Alex Franco. Fashion photographer Angelo Pennetta shoots Argentinian it-girl Mica Arganaraz in her Parisian digs for the cover story while model-slash-actress Tao Okamoto frolics at home fresh off a role in the newest comic book mega movie, Batman v Superman. Sophia Ahrens is marvelously minimal and fresh faced in Dario Catellani and Zara Zachrisson‘s contribution.

Take a sneak peek at the issue below and pick up your copy here at The Last Magazine.

Double Vision : Saint Laurent Paris

January 9th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Hedi Slimane’s dramatic rebranding of Yves Saint Laurent was one of the most divisive collections in recent memory; everyone had an opinion, some more hotly debated than others. While many found Slimane’s changes to be completely in line with the spirit of the house and a much needed makeover that pushed the brand into the future, others felt the overhaul was unnecessary, overly hyped and even underwhelming. Wide brim hats and seventies style suiting aren’t for everyone, but no matter how you felt about the Saint Laurent Paris ensembles themselves, you knew you were going to be seeing a lot of them. Like the McQueen visors and Prada stripes that came before them, those SLP hats were destined for editorials; fashion editors can’t resist a look with instant visual impact and Slimane’s designs are always distinctive.

Though the chapeaus are shaping up to be one of the most photographed editorial pieces of the moment, few stylists have strayed from the vision Slimane presented on the runway. Every so often though, the mood of the image goes beyond simply rehashing the nonchalant cool vibe of Slimane’s Le Smoking influenced style and pushes into expressive territory. Take a look at the way Lori Goldstein adds a touch of 60s glamour in the Vogue Italia shots of Fei Fei Sun, putting a more structured version of the SLP headpiece to good use but making it right for a completely different kind of mood.

Put A Ring On It

April 30th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Is there a single more ubiquitous luxury item than the Givenchy couture nose rings? Sure those Prada car print skirts are everywhere and you can’t walk down the street without seeing a Celine luggage tote, but nothing is more noticeable than five pounds of metalwork dangling from a beautiful girl’s face.

Add to this that the Givenchy nose rings have all the elements of an editorial frontrunner; undeniable visual impact – check, expensive – check, hard to get your hands on – double check. There was absolutely no way editors could resist themselves and as such the rings have been showing up in every magazine imaginable for the past few months.

Are you still enjoying seeing these beautiful ornaments – or are you ready to move on to the next trend? We admit to experiencing a bit of Givenchy fatigue – considering that the pieces are always styled with Givenchy looks, which is nice but not exactly exciting. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see these paired with something else – maybe mix in one of those other overexposed editorial favorites, Balenciaga Darth Vader visors anyone?

The Look of Angelo Pennetta

April 10th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Considering how much of fashion’s excitement happens behind the scenes, it is surprising how few editorial images enter into reportage territory. Ask anyone working in the industry: half the magic takes place far away from photo studios, runways and sound stages. Seeing these moments captured is always intriguing, and Angelo Pennetta‘s work provides a bird’s-eye view into the realities behind fashion.

In British Vogue, Pennetta follows Karlie Kloss as she makes her way through Paris fashion week, offering a glamorous yet candid look at the model lifestyle. The pictures are high gloss, styled to a t, and showcase some of the season’s best clothes, but they manage to feel authentic and inviting. Who wouldn’t want to lounge around at the Hotel Crillon with Karlie?

Likewise, Pennetta’s shots of the effervescent Liu Wen‘s travels through China felt like an little peek into Liu’s private side. So often it is the photographer who meticulously crafts the vision a model is supposed to represent; viewing the work of an artist who lets the girls be themselves is a treat. Especially when the journeys he takes you on are so lovely.

Bits & Bytes: Visionary + Visionaire

April 28th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

amvisionaire
Visionaire‘s next issue will be a tribute to Alexander McQueen. Here’s the preview for it on Visionaireworld. Going to have to fork out the $295 for this one. (Image from Visionaireworld)

Fashion news:

A lot of you may know Dusan Reljin‘s name from his wonderful work as a photographer. But did you know he just designed a sunglasses collection for Selima; featured here on Style.com.

Anna Dello Russo is the best! See Anna’s life story in Japanese manga format. I still can’t decide 100% if it is really her blog but it’s so over the top, it probably is.

This incredible fashion shoot by Simon Procter for Vs Magazine is given some good lovin’ by Sans Artifice.

Photography news:

Mert & Marcus‘ ex assistant chats to Love Magazine. Besides being talented; Angelo Pennetta is very, very funny.

The next photographer duo? The German duo of Billy und Hells are worth a look.

Miscellaneous:

Many of you know that Tara Subkoff is recovering from brain cancer. Read her interview with Harper’s Bazaar about her journey.

I’ve met Justin Gelband and he most definitely is intense. I see why Victoria’s Secret stars and Sports Illustrated beauties go to him to be trained.

I loved American Elle growing up in the 80’s. It was joyful, inclusive and still aspirational. Jezebel compares the 1986 May issue with this month’s issue.

Did Anna Wintour really have a brief affair with Bob Marley in the 70’s? Oh Anna you naughty girl, you.

You gotta love Jezebel playing detective. Is Kimora Lee Simmons head really on Daria Werbowy’s body?

Modeling news:

Ohhhh yeaaaahhh! It’s about time. Models edge out celebrities for fashion ads. WWD lists some of the major houses for fall.

Models Myf Shepherd (who is in art school) and Rachel Rutt are doing anonymous interviews with fashion insiders for MUTT; should be quite interesting.

Casting director Julia Samersova talks to MSN about the new faces of tomorrow (including Estee Lauder faces Liu and Constance).

Love Magazine takes a “boob break” and has casting director Michelle Lee pick her favorite new “androgynous” girls.

Speaking of boobs, here are Jonathan Leder’s pics/video of his new work for Jacques. His work always seem tasteful and respectful to women; some consider him the anti Terry.

Hmmm, what are those birds diving towards? Click here to see more polaroids of great new face Johannes Niermann. Johannes walked Burberry, Zegna, Prada and Viktor & Rolf this past January.
