First Look: Antidote’s Icons

May 3rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Who are the modern modeling icons? Tough question, but Antidote Magazine offers their take on iconic women with 8 new covers featuring models from different generations who have made a fashion impact. Shot by Jan Welters, with creative direction by Yann Weber, the images are elegant and evocative, as is Welter’s corresponding video. Who doesn’t love a great shot of a beautiful girl in a white gown?

The cast selection is sure to stir up a fair amount of debate; no one can argue that Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova and Malgosia Bela aren’t iconic, but do you think relative newcomers Saskia de Brauw and Lindsey Wixson are worthy of the title? We already know some people are lobbying for Natasha Poly on the icons list, but how do you feel about the inclusion of the stunning Bianca Balti & Aymeline Valade?

mdc ♥s : over the top extras

October 27th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Aymeline Valade works a flamboyant look in an image by Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Japan November 2011, styled by Anna Dello Russo

Minimalism is nice, but every so often you want to kick things into high gear and really go over the top. Take a look at trendsetting editors on the street style blogs and you’ll see how much fashion loves all out exhibitionists. Whether you’re a budding Anna Dello Russo, or just in search of a little extra sparkle, we’ve got a few extras you’ll love.

Alexander Wang Metallic Devere – Already a favorite of Garance Dore and seen on the shoulders of several Wang girls this season, the Devere is an appealingly Art Deco take on the classic satchel. In a notice me color like silver, it is sure to garner a few stares.

Miu Miu Glitter and Suede shoes – When it comes to girly glitter Miu Miu has the market cornered. This season Miuccia’s favorite color appears to be shiny and the glitter and suede open toe bootie is the best variation on the trend. We’ve already seen it cropping up in editorial after editorial, not to mention on the feet of stylish accessories experts like Teen Vogue‘s Shiona Turini.

Paco Rabanne Lady Million – Naturally when you’re going for the bold, you should smell like a million bucks. Who can resist a blend of orange blossom, amber and gardenia with a hint of patchouli? Or the inventive gold nugget packaging that we’re pretty sure ADR would turn into a makeshift clutch. Lady Million is playful, yet seductive – much like campaign star Dree Hemingway.

Beauty is Life Queen Eyelashes –  Glitter. Covered. False. Lashes. Completely impractical and utterly fabulous, perfect for Halloween, an evening at your local drag bar or something wild to wear to the Gaga concert.

Tom Binns Pastelle Necklace – More is more and Binns’ candy colored gems are the cream of the crop.

MAC Wild Color Pigments – Were in love with the campaign imagery starring Cindy Sherman and the vibrant colors are sure to unleash your inner artist. Wet pigments and use them as eyeliner, mix them with Vaseline to create a lip color, add a little to your favorite blush or powder for sparkle – the only rule is there are no rules.

Judith Leiber Cupcake keychain – Because everyone needs a rhinestone covered cupcake in their life.
