Age of Innocence

July 16th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

The latest issue of Vogue Italia celebrates beauty at any age and features a wide range of influential women shot by some of the greatest photographers in the business. The champion of women of all ages, Steven Meisel returns (that was quick!) with the cover story capturing prolific modeling veterans like Donna Jordan, Erin O’Connor, Frankie Rayder, Sasha Pivovarova, Yasmin Warsame, and their new-school, supermodel-progeny counterparts Anna Cleveland, Kaia Gerber, and Sasha P’s adorable toddler, Mia Isis Vishnyakov. The various range of ages shot by Meisel challenges society’s propensity for ageism in a delightfully refreshing way.

Bruce Weber continues the theme with “Leaders of the Pack” that highlights women that have made an impact culturally like Cheryl Tiegs, Marianne Faithfull, Pat Cleveland, and Penelope Tree. Francesco Carrozzini glams up the incomparable model and personality Heidi Klum for beauty portraits that show the veteran in all her alluring glory. Michel Comte rounds it up with his take on the theme with “Women of Today” featuring some of the most prolific actresses, models, choreographers, & artists with appearances from Anjelica Huston, Tatjana Patitz, Karen Alexander, & Claudia Mason.

As daughter of one of modeling’s legends, Anna Cleveland has always had a place within the world of fashion, but this year the gamine beauty has come into her own with work that raises the bar. You’ll find Anna in the pages of CR Fashion Book, Lanvin‘s latest campaign and on the couture runways for designers like Jean Paul Gaultier and Elie Saab. In an exclusive letter in CR Fashion book, Anna opens up on building her fashion family, working with Carine Roitfeld and her current career high – read the full letter at CR Fashion Book.com 

On her generation of models: I like to call everyone that I encounter on the same wavelength a ‘fashion family.’ Just like my mother had one with Karl Lagerfield, Yves Saint Laurent, Antonio Lopez, and Andy Warhol. Now I’m finally seeing my group fall into place. It’s the best thing to be surrounded by so many people that have such large input in the fashion world, and to absorb every minute of it, like a sponge, with delight, giving everything you can in the moment to create an image of art.

On the fashion industry: Fashion is a way of life. Clothing can make you feel a certain way, and all I want is to give people that feeling. I am very proud to be part of this world.

On working with Carine: I remember my first editorial. It was with CR [Carine Roitfeld] for French Vogue, at 11 or 12 years old. I was, at the time, the youngest girl ever to pose for a 13-page story. At that age, I thought that I was ready to conquer the world and my dreams; flying to Paris for a fashion shoot was just a part of that fantasy. I thought that I was all grown up and tough. In reality, I was far from it at that time.

Pre-Fall Finery

December 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Pre-fall’s appealing fashions just keep on coming, every day a new set of designers releases their collection and across the board there have been beautiful looks to love. Take a look at a few of our favorites and tell us yours in the comments.

PRABAL GURUNG

For pre-fall Prabal Gurung namechecked Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet as a reference, so we knew we were in for an exciting mix of the old and new. Mixed prints are all the rage, but no one does them with as much finesse. We’ve seen Gurung do impressive riffs on the traditional floral in previous seasons, but pre-fall’s lush interpretations, whether embroidered or printed are simply stunning. Add in the Mexican textile inspired pieces, Gurung’s unique take on tweed and of course and of course those intense colors and you have the makings of a compelling collection.

Cool girls rejoice, your wardrobe has arrived! Lazaro and Jack never disappoint and their pre-fall look is all about texture, wearability and adaptable pieces that fit right in to your life. We’re already craving those incredible metallics separates and the brand new Courier bag, another surefire Proenza hit.


JASON WU

Is it just us or has the Wu girl evolved into a very sexy miss? S/S saw the designer in a decidedly daring mood with his tasteful dominatrix inspired styles adding just the right amount of darkness to his repertoire. Pre-fall finds Wu continuing to traipse down the road less traveled, with a series of revealing looks that flirt with danger. Sequined gowns with transparent panels showing off a touch of skin, leather accents, touches of gold – it all makes for one scintillating package.


ZAC POSEN

Never one to skimp on the glamour, Zac Posen gave fans a suitably decadent pre-fall collection, filled to the brim with dresses fit for the galas, film premieres and invite-only fêtes Posen girls find themselves attending at least once a week. Opera singer Maria Callas was on Posen’s mind this season and it shows in the diva-worthy ball gowns and theatrical details. Posen makes clothing for women with personality and flair, but just about anyone would look camera ready in that red satin number.
