A Singular Beauty

April 9th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

It’s always a thrill to see a fresh face land her first major cover. Nominating Maria Borges for the May 2014 cover, Vogue Portugal takes a minimal approach and lets the rising model’s incredible features stand out. Following up back-to-back knockout turns on the Fall RTW and Spring Couture runways, Maria embodies demure elegance in a pared down cover shoot by photographer Rui Aguiar. Styled by Paulo Macedo in looks from Prada, Alaia, and Maison Martin Margiela, Maria shows off the singular grace that’s already made her a favorite at Dior, Tom Ford, and Givenchy. Adding this stunning series to her growing repertoire, this Angolan beauty is sure to have a bright future ahead of her.

Hey, Big Spender!

March 14th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

Whetting your envy for retail therapy, British Vogue’s April issue follows a bevy of fresh faces as they embark upon a shopping fantasy along Paris’ storied Avenue Montaigne. Nigel Shafran shoots 9 rising girls—Estella Brons, Binx Walton, and Olympia Campbell among them—as they set to popping tags at fashion’s biggest brands, including Céline, Louis Vuitton, and Alaia. Snapping each girl at a different stage of the shopping ritual, the series finds Natalie Westling at David Chipperfield’s Valentino boutique and Ine Neefs hilariously praying before the window at Chanel. Though Irina Liss and Elodia Prieto are the only girls seen leaving stores with bags in tow, we can’t pity the others; styled by Joe McKenna, every girl, from Harleth Kuusik to Alewya Demmisse, looks like she owns the place. / See the full story on MAP

The strongest looks of the season come to life, in Sundsbø’s streamlined interpretation of athletic chic. Clad in barely there, Cortina selected pieces from Marc Jacobs, Azzedine Alaia and Prada, Andrea cuts a fine figure against the crystalline blue sky backdrop. Running in Tom Ford’s mile high heels isn’t a full-fledge sport yet, but Sundsbø’s beautiful shots  manage to make such impossible feats look downright appealing.

Focusing on the slinky selection of Stella McCartneyLouis Vuitton & Azzedine Alaia chosen by Stevie Dance and Daisy’s sixties chic look, Davidson crafts a story that is stark yet sensual.
