The Block Is Hot

April 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Nothing better than an early look at new fashion content and the latest issue of The Block Magazine is chock full of striking imagery featuring faves from the worlds of  music, fashion, art and film. Dubbed the “Issue of Marriage Equality” the Block is covered by three standouts, Garbage’s iconic singer the flame haired Shirley Manson, stunning top model Ymre Stiekema and everyone’s favorite poser / artist / actor the quirky Boyd Holbrook.

Of course we don’t judge a mag by its cover alone, because inside The Block there is plenty to love. Jeff Hahn‘s emotive images of real life couples, Tom Allen’s dreamy stills featuring the work of choreographer Justin Peck, Victor Demarchelier‘s NYC themed showcase for  Didier Malige‘s fascinating hair artistry story and Hugh Lippe‘s stark exploration of cutting edge menswear, all caught our eye. Don’t take our word for it of course – have a look at our exclusive preview to see some of the most striking shots inside the issue.

Just in time as the sizzling spring/summer season arrives in NY is Hercules’ spread of 8 fabulous Brazilian beauties wearing well, not much of anything. Shot by Paola Kudacki and cast by Natalie Joos, see the sneak peek  here.

Model News:

Some might have called the 00′s the decade of the Brazilian model invasion but the non Brazilians seem to be popular right now for their campaigns.

We agree with Fashionista about setting some rules in New York (like Paris has) for models under the age of 18.

MDC’s top 10 newcomer Carla Gebhart gets her Ponyryder interview.

For anyone born before 1980, Niki Taylor will always be one of the original supermodels. Here, Production shows she is just as beautiful as ever.

We know male models are always keeping themselves busy since it’s just not as hectic for them as it is for the girls. Here’s 4 that are not only super successful (Vincent LaCrocq, Boyd Holbrook, Jacques Naude and Jamie Strachan), they are creating their own little artists community/gallery called BAG.

We adore this story in the NY Times about Karen Elson and her new album.

TFS does it again, picking out fascinating faces amongst all the thousands of new ones. We love Dan Kling who has an elfin yet ethereal face perfect for Jil Sander, Raf Simons and Prada.

Miscellaneous:

Long before the Sartorialist, there was Bill Cunningham. I remember seeing him first in the early 90′s outside at shows and thinking who IS this guy? At 81 years old, Bill’s the ORIGINAL street style photographer and is still working his NY Times beat to this day. There’s a documentary recently out on him (where they spent 8 years chasing him to get his cooperation… “Why me? There’s no subject here”). Some of these recent street style photographers could take some lessons in humbleness and hard work from this true old school gentlemen. (Check out his video work where his enthusiasm is so infectious).

Prada takes over the world! Well at least our alphabet. Here’s the Pradalphabet created by M&M.

One of our favorite designers, Rad Hourani, writes a NY Times piece on black, his favorite color.

If you haven’t read Cathy Horyn‘s detailed story on Alexander McQueen‘s final hours, read it here now.

One of our favorite agents with a oh so wicked sense of English humor (and amazing stories to go with it), Richard Habberley gets his moment in the spotlight with an interview by Love magazine.

Jacques, Vincent, Conrad and Boyd by Thomas Lohr for Contributing Editor.

The Women/Supreme girls are gorgeous for the V Covers by Paul Rowland but are they influenced by one of the scariest trends to come out of Norway?

Anna Wintour charms David Letterman. Click here to watch pretty much the whole thing, with Frockwriter putting in the bits that are missing. (Oh this is a funny post about Anna Wintour on Letterman about her so-called “body language” on the show.)

How cute is Cintia Dicker as a baby?

One supermodel shoots another. Helena Christensen photographs Larry Scott for Faconnable.

Why is Sienna Miller, Kate Bosworth, etc always on Vogue’s best dressed list? Hadley Freeman has a hilarious answer

See some of Kate Mosspieces for Topshop.

Raquel Zimmermann talks and we can listen for hours..

Danny Boy

January 23rd, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The boys of Milan are already starting to have an impact. Danny Schwarz is making a big splash this season with appearances in multiple campaigns. First up Danny looks stellar in Steven Meisel‘s sundrenched Missoni campaign alongside superstars Isabeli Fontana and Natasha Poly. For Pepe Jeans’ rock n’ roll themed ads with Anna Jagodzinska, Jamie Strachan and Boyd Holbrook Danny looks every bit the star. With back to back campaigns and a stellar Milan season just wrapped up Danny is surely a face to watch.

MDC hearts Anne V

January 8th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

After years of meeting models, Anne Vyalitsyna still stands out to us as one of the sweetest, hardworking and most professional around. Her recent show season (Prada, Miu Miu, Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Hermes) and her current work with French Vogue and i-D, prove that fashion definitely loves a comeback kid. For the latest i-D, Anne is paired with Boyd Holbrook for a romantically sweet editorial. Equal parts sexy and humorous Anne conveys both emotions perfectly, displaying the versatility that keeps her a coveted commodity.

Boyd in Milk

December 1st, 2008 |Posted by Betty

The world memorializes World AIDS Day, observed every year on December 1st. Though AIDS impacts everyone: men and women, straight and gay, it has profoundly affected the gay community. Just in time to help further education, understanding and tolerance about the gay community, comes the movie Milk, Gus Van Sant‘s film about Harvey Milk, California’s first elected openly gay politician starring Sean Penn. Top male model and artist, Boyd Holbrook makes his acting debut in Milk.

See related: Women Management for a vintage Meisel “Safe Sex is Hot Sex” poster.
