V’s fall fashion extravaganza is dedicated to the city of New York and it kicks off to a great start with Alasdair McLellan‘s portfolio of fashion’s inspired by the effortlessly cool look of the East Village. Styled by Beat Bolliger and shot right on Saint Mark’s Place, the shoot features combat boots, chunky silver jewelry and a whole lot of layering to create a look that is a surprisingly luxe blend of punk and grunge. Who better to embody the edgy feel of the story than Agyness Deyn? The trendsetting model (and East Village resident) is back and better than ever. With her blonde buzzcut and tribal inspired makeup, Agyness looks like a young Sinéad O’Connor.

Check out the full story when V67, The New York Issue hits newsstands.

Bits & Bytes: The Face

To go along with our Kate Moss post on her enduring beauty, is the editorial on Sean O’Pry by David Sims. His perfect face is near legendary at this point which is perfect for the Ralph Lauren American heroes story boldly styled by Beat Bolliger. (pic courtesy of VNY, more pics see here)
——————————————————————————-
Funny. Fashion Week Daily talks about fashion people who don’t “own” their own name.

Photographer Magnus Unnar talks to Interview Magazine

Karl Lagerfeld is alternately supremely witty/insightful and so out of touch in this Vice interview. That’s what makes him Kaiser Karl and why we’re always fascinated. You’ll also see how handsome he was (with a still shot of Karl in an Andy Warhol flick).

Swide interviews Maurilio Carnino for MTC Casting about the casting business. He talks about that infamous Donna Karan show where the lights fell on the audienc. We adore his new site for real people, A Streetcat named Desire.

The gorgeous Teresa Lourenco who we ran into last night, looks amazing as a pregnant mommy.

Remember the D&G supermodel fragrance ad with Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Tyson Ballou, etc? The Brazilian face in that ad Fernando Fernandes got into a tragic car crash and is paralyzed from the waist down. Look what he’s doing now.

Here’s a V Magazine update:
3 incredible videos of everyone’s favorite Raquel Zimmerman by Mario Sorrenti, Carolyn Murphy and gorgeous boy models by Sebastian Faena and Kirsten Dunst looking like an old time movie star by Mario Testino. Below the 2 V Man/Ford Models winners. Can’t wait to see the covers shot by Terry Richardson.
