Lucky Blue and Pyper Team Up for Moncler

July 15th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

French-Italian lifestyle brand Moncler drafted newly minted Top 50 model Lucky Blue Smith and sister-slash-bandmate Pyper America for their Fall Winter 15 campaign. Lensed by the legendary Annie Leibovitz, she photographs the pair backed by the sweeping scenery of Iceland; a fitting set against their icy blue eyes and and platinum hair. Following his Tom Ford and Philipp Plein FW 15 campaigns, this serves as another notch on the Instagram boy-wonder’s belt making it more than a lucky streak. Not every model gets a Wall Street Journal article heralding them as a “star on the rise” (the piece, by the way, cites our Editor-in-Chief, Models.com’s Stephan Moskovic). It’s hard to contest his appeal… with Pyper, does that about make them a blonde dynamic duo?

Vuitton 2.0

January 7th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

No other designer could pull together Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber and Juergen Teller (Camilla Lowther Management) for one campaign, but Nicolas Ghesquière does it for the second season in a row with the Series 2 campaign for Louis Vuitton. Ghesquière’s streetwise spring collection built on the ideas he laid out in his first collection for the brand and the triple-header campaign does the same for Vuitton’s visual identity. With longtime muse (and former model) Jennifer Connelly leading the pack, Ghesquière focuses on women whose innate cool meshes well with the laid back look he’s been building at Vuitton. Models Marte Mei van Haaster, Rianne van Rompaey, Daphne Simons, Jean Campbell and Freja Beha Erichsen serve as stars and bring with them a sense of youthful chic. With locations ranging from an art-filled Parisian townhouse to the top of an unfinished Manhattan skyscraper the eclectic images from Weber, Liebovitz and Weber make for a flawless campaign.

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.

The Silk Road

November 19th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s difficult not to have a soft spot for American Vogue‘s actor + model editorials and over the years the magazine has given us more than a few memorable pairings; Gisele and George Clooney, Gemma Ward and Josh Hartnett, Liya Kebede & Andre 3000, the list goes on. For the December issue Vogue takes things to the next level, enlisting Kate Moss and this year’s Oscar front-runner Chiwetel Ejiofor for a Mario Testino (Art Partner) helmed story that takes the pair to Istanbul on a romantic getaway. Sporting resort looks from BurberryJason Wu and a bit of SS14 Proenza Schouler as styled by Tonne Goodman, the pair looks resplendent. With architectural wonders like the Çinili Köşk as the backdrop and Testino showcasing the beauty of Istanbul in every shot the story also serves as an especially chic travel diary.

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.
