Pagan Poetry

August 20th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is nothing like a pleasant surprise to get the season started right. The September issue of V comes with a staggering special supplement that focuses on the cerebral beauties at Women & Supreme Management management. The lengthy portfolio by  Paul Rowland re-imagines 19 of the industry’s most captivating faces as pagans – complete with flowers, insects, slabs of serrated flesh and of course, blood. The end result is raw, hypnotic and about a thousand times more interesting than most of the covers we’ve seen this September. Seeing Alana Zimmer, Alla Kostromichova, Behati Prinsloo, Christina Kruse, Daiane Conterato, Darya Kurovska, Georgina Stojiljkovic, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Hannelore Knuts, Iris Strubegger, Isabeli Fontana, Meghan Collison, Mina Cvetkovic, Natasa Vojnovic, Ranya Mordanova, Rose Cordero, Suvi Koponen, Valentina Zeliaeva and Yulia Kharlapanova in this new light highlights not only the versatility of the girls but also the sheer reserves of talent that can be found at these two powerhouse agencies.

Bits and Bytes: From rooftop to runway

June 24th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Jean Carlos at DSquared2, S/S10. Image from Made in Brazil. With MC2 Model Management.

Seems like a mere 15 minutes ago, Jean Carlos was shooting his first tests in New York on a rooftop. This week, the Brazilian so popular with the fashion bloggers walked some of the big runways in Milan, including DSquared2, CP Company, Etro and Giorgio Armani.

—————————————

If you adore Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Marisa Miller, Adriana Lima, Selita Ebanks, Miranda Kerr, Behati Prinsloo and Doutzen Kroes, then go to Victoria’s Secret’s Facebook page.

Surprise! Jamie Dornan, in 3 of the season’s Calvin Klein campaigns, says he’s never done a runway show.

The Milan men’s shows had some breathing room, thanks to the recession.

Frockwriter talks about the “Hedi Sliminization” of fashion and here’s the Guy Trebay NY Times article on AJ Abualrub dropping 30 pounds for the shows. Much has been made of him saying he eats twice a day; not that we are condoning that but all we can say is when we were in our teens, we had totally bad habits like eating twice a day too.

Watch Jil Sander, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli all here and Burberry, Zegna and Dolce & Gabbana here.

Helmut Newton‘s Sumo re-released!

For his S/S 10 show, Alexander McQueen does a film instead with David Sims.

Here’s another hilarious look by Jezebel at male models in vintage catalogs. All we can say is the male model and what they wear sure has changed!

Sans Artifice likes the Jil Sander collection and we do too!

Longtime fashion stylist, Nicoletta Santoro gets interviewed by One Management.

More adorable pics of Behati Prinsloo‘s cat. (With the beau, Jamie Strachan looking none too pleased).

See behind the scenes video at the 2009 CFDA Swarovski menswear/accessories awards nominees photoshoot. There’s something adorable about these top designers posing together like a bunch of fraternity brothers.

80’s icon Ines de la Fressange brings back the Roger Vivier brand and dishes about Karl Lagerfeld and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.

VMan/Ford Model contest has less than 1 week left. Click here to enter or to see entries.

It’s official. Fabien Baron‘s back in and Glenn O’Brien is out at Interview.

In case you read Portugese.. here’s an interview with Isabeli Fontana! It looks like she loves Aerosmith and would like to walk for YSL.. Are we right, her Brazilian fans?

JD Ferguson has a party.. and the fashion crew turns it out (including Riccardo Tisci and so many top models)!! So sad we missed it!

Though Natalia Vodianova is a fantastic cover model for this month’s British Vogue, let us not forget the divine Lara Stone who has a lush spread inside the mag by Alasdair McLellan wearing the season’s most coveted swimsuits. 

———————————

If you have $25,000 to spare, buy the Elton John Aids Foundation Portfolio.. You’ll get work by Juergen Teller, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst to name just a few of the star artists.

Tatiana did not like the Met’s Model as Muse. Here’s her critique.

Lara Stone is “inside the Chanel fitting room” with Baptiste Giabiconi. Video produced by Mr Lagerfeld! Pics on WWD here.

Fashionista chats with J Crew’s Creative Director, Jenna Lyons who adores Behati Prinsloo!

Though Kate Moss is on the cover of Tar, Sans Artifice asserts, it’s NOT a fashion magazine. There are however, wonderfully disturbing images of Kate and Natasa Vojnovic, here.
