Together Again

October 8th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn just go together. Whether they are hanging out backstage or appearing side by side in editorials there is just something about the way these two compliment one another that makes for an incredible photograph. Emma Summerton taps into their undeniable chemistry for a Vogue Italia story with a flair for drama. Jourdan and Karlie are mysterious women who are strangely connected with Josh Beech and Ash Stymest at their side the two look pitch perfect. Dressed in fall’s exquisite coats and Alexander McQueen’s unweildy platforms the duo makes for a well matched pair. Edward Enninful‘s impressive styling techniques are on full display but so are Mathias van Hooff‘s makeup skills – the orange lips on Karlie are to die for.

Plus 2

August 28th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Joining Sasha Pivovarova and Ash Stymest, in multi cover mania are the perfect pairings of Jamie Bochert and Christian Brylle on Vogue Italia cover 2 and Anna Jagodzinska, Will Lewis and Max Rogers on cover 3. VI covers always inspire passionate diatribes from fashion followers and September’s Unexpected trio is no different. Here are some of our favorites from the Fashion Spot fans:

radolgc: So happy to see male models on the cover…it all looks like homeless people having fun with makeup and stealing couture clothes from some shop in the middle of the night and having fun with it! Love the mood, love everything about it…the fact there are multiple covers makes it much more exciting!

youarearockstar: For the record, I think Jamie looks absolutely sensational on that cover and pairing her with Christian Brylle was genius. They’re two witches-cum-chimney sweeps.

vavavinny: …This is all very Oliver Twist / demented Alice in Wonderland to me…Despite my pure and utter hatred for the whole concept, though, I must say that Anna J. steals the show. She still manages to look fierce and sexy, even with that disaster-of-a-hat on her head and the two satyr-looking things standing behind her.

wednesday’s child: No offence to anyone but i just can’t understand how people don’t like this.. it’s perfect in every totally captures the zeitgeist, the casting, styling is perfect!! the dirt, the ruffianishness, to me its like a post apocalyptic vision, where consumer society has been replaced by something harder and more real, where people make do with what is around them to keep warm, but still create outfits that look beautiful with their creativity!… the staff Ash is carrying is like a traveler, a refugee, so global, so now, I can’t wait to get it! can someone explain why they don’t like it!!!!

nijuyanha: The boar in Jamie’s hand scares me (actually gives the impression she’s breastfeeding it) but overall I think that one is probably the best out of all the covers.

And there you go. What’s your take on the 3 covers?

Most Unexpected

August 27th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Summer is over. The always highly anticipated September Vogue Italia cover appears early with Sasha Pivovarova and Ash Stymest and catapults us into fall. Steven Meisel vibrantly captures the duo as contemporary urchins and delivers a frisson of energy and urgency to the season. Mark that 5 VI covers for Sasha and her hypnotic presence and Ash’s 1st for VI and 8th cover overall in just over a year.

Look Again

April 22nd, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Lean, tattooed, youthful and edgy – these are the hallmarks of the current male model look, a look personified by boys like Ash Stymest, Luke Worrall Josh Beech, George Barnett and Cole Mohr. Arena Homme + pays tribute to male modeling’s resident rebels via a series of serene blue shots by Alasdair McLellan. Considering the nearly indistinguishable portraits one has to wonder – with so many boys sporting the tats and attitude has the look reached critical mass?

The Select

February 12th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Select Model Management is having a moment. With the market cornered on cool London youth the agency lands 6 of the month’s most talked about covers. First Pixie Geldof lands front and center on the cover of Vogue Italia in perhaps the most inadvertently controversial cover so far this year, then Ash Stymest and Eliza Cummins double team for Dazed and Confused. Punk princess Alice Dellal adds her edge to i-D, sharing space with the ‘so hot right now’ Eliza and Daisy Lowe and the eternally iconic Stella Tennant. Last but certainly not least, who lands in said i-D but one of our favorite 80’s mannequins, Jeny Howarth, looking as legendary as ever.

Sexual Revolution

February 10th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Sex, Rock, controversy and plenty of in your face attitude? It’s just another day in the life for Ash Stymest & Eliza Cummings. Who could forget the brash young upstarts who exploded on the scene earlier this year with their own special brand of punk cool? If your memory needs refreshing check out their now infamous MDC special for a look into why their authentic insouciance is so coveted.

The dynamic duo now graces the cover of the March issue of Dazed and Confused with an image that is bound to set tongues wagging. Shot by Mariano Vivanco and styled by Nicola Formichetti the cover is a daring salute to non-conformity and is sure to fly off newsstands.
