Prada Persuasion

June 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Prada‘s elegant fall collection comes to life with a thrilling new campaign by Steven Meisel. In previous seasons the brand has gone for high concept ads and elaborate set ups, but for fall the focus is all on the clothes and the cast. The mix of striking new faces alongside seasoned fashion veterans highlights the universal appeal of Miuccia Prada’s designs and reinforces the idea that a Prada ensemble is the right choice for women of all ages.

The Prada Persuasion

June 17th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Miuccia Prada keeps us on our toes; whether that is with idiosyncratic collections, or one of a kind imagery depends on the day, but one could never accuse camp Prada of being boring. This season’s campaign is a testament to the brand’s ability to think outside the box, their F/W image is all about the next generation of modeling stars. As such you will find no familiars amongst the stunning cast (well maybe just one – budding supermodel Frida Gustavsson also stars) Ashley Brokaw went in search of girls with the Prada je ne sais quoi, that certain special something that has defined the brand’s faces from Sasha Pivovarova to Daria Werbowy. Only the newest of the new need apply – some of the campaign’s stars haven’t even walked shows yet.

In the first snaps to hit the internet the gorgeous Kelly Mittendorf (Marilyn) gives a star making turn in a beautiful shot by Steven Meisel. The image is pure Prada and Kelly’s one of a kind look is certain to grab the attention of casting directors and model fans alike. BONUS: Gorgeous newcomers Ondria Hardin (Ford) and Antonia Wesseloh (Ford) make equally alluring debuts in the campaign’s two new images!

Bits & Bytes: Super Yasmin

October 2nd, 2009 |Posted by Betty

20

Yasmin LeBon. Ph: Philip Riches for L’Officiel Netherlands, courtesy of Elite New York.

I’m going to date myself a little now by saying that Yasmin was one of my favorite 80’s supermodels. Her incredible Vogue and Elle covers (jumping! on the beach!) were some of my most remembered visuals of that long gone era. It’s of course utterly thrilling to see her comeback, with her recent work with Vogue Paris, American Vogue, i-D and Wonderland. Here’s to one of the originals!

—————————————————————————————-

Karla Otto, PR powerhouse, Karla Otto sexy Gentlewoman?

Anja Rubik is a supermodel. And an avid yoga practitioner. Sign us up right now to get those legs

Here are more pics of the AMFAR event in Milan, including Giovanna Battaglia and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, called “fashion royalty”.

For those who know Chris Rock‘s “Clear Heels” diatribe, you’ll find The Cut’s essay on Milan’s shoe of the season, pretty funny.

Aspiring photographers, get your work published in W, how COOL!

Balenciaga’s casting by Ashley Brokaw elicited some nice surprises for the week: Miranda Kerr (click here to see the 2 sides of Ms. Kerr, the sexy VS Angel and the transformation on the runway), Rasa Zukauskaite, Jenny Sinkaberg with IMG, former feed face Marlena Szoka, new faces Jacquelyn Jablonski, Mirte Maas, Patricia van der Vliet, Lisanne de Jong, Gwen Loos (Marilyn).

Balmain had Daria Werbowy in her only show (opening and closing).

Check out Cathy Horyn‘s conversation with Nicolas Ghesquiere backstage; listen to his wonderful French tinged English and of course take a look at his incredible collection: why Paris is the premier reasons they will always rule Fashion Week.

As for Rick Owens (which the Imagist loved!) he cast 4 of our favorite (and totally underrated) black models: Georgie Badiel, Kinee Diouf, Aminata Niaria and Rose Cordero.

Speaking of Miranda Kerr, she’s launching her own skincare line.

Stylist Melanie Ward‘s first collection, Blouson Noir (Black Shirt), sounds amazing.

Bad for your wallet, great for your closet. Style.com offers “Shop the looks”.

Style.com sits down with Gareth Pugh.

V Man and Showstudio are on the last legs of their male model search.

Speaking of V, how much do we love how they showcase the transformation of a fresh new Ford face, Sydney Roper. See the before and after!

Alexandre de Betak is quite a genius but now he’s officially approved by the Times who calls him “The Fellini of Fashion”.

Here’s the info for the Victoria’s Secret open casting this weekend.

Speaking of shopping: Isabel Marant, a favorite designer of the supermodels, will be opening in New York’s Soho. Isaac Mizrahi will be opening his first “shop” because of his psychic!

If you’re in Paris, go to the outdoor Vogue cover show, like Olivier Zahm did. You won’t be anywhere as fabulous as he, but you can pretend!

If you love the Rick Owens show, click here to see more dramatic black and white runway shots from Mr Purple himself.

“Every once in a while I’d feed one until it let me pet it, but it usually just ended up being more trouble than it was worth.” Um, not sure what to think about this, Rick Owens, but we still love your collection.
