Just One Look – YSL

January 18th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Every year there are pieces that become repeat offenders: out of the hundreds of looks presented each season a few manage to monopolize editorial space and show up in just about every magazine. When you see the same piece in different images the importance of styling, hair & makeup really becomes evident – one wrong element and the clothes can look unappealing.

Lately we’ve been noticing a very chic Yves Saint Laurent coat popping up in editorial after editorial, looking different in each picture.  Made of “pale green lace jacquard with black cornelly embroideries” the coat was look one during the spring / summer show and looked pretty fetching on Kasia Struss. In the magazines the same look takes on a variety of guises: in the pages of Vogue Italia it turns into a harlequin costume for Querelle Jansen, while Harper’s Bazaar uses it as a retro topper for a blonde Bette FrankeW Magazine focuses on the graphic print with a black and white shot and some serious eye makeup on Cara Delevingne, while Elle goes in a flamboyant direction placing it on top of a red satin bra and a knit skirt from Chloe.

All Tomorrow’s Parties

November 22nd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Toni Garrn, Rose Smith, David Agbodji, Ian Mellencamp, Arthur Kulkov, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Lykke Li and Sky Ferreira all in one room: must be another night at the Standard. Harper’s Bazaar heads to the hotel’s fabled Boom Boom room for a story that sets out to capture the vibrant energy of Manhattan’s late night scene. With a mix of models, actors, actresses, musicians, a cameo from artist Richard Phillips and even a glimpse of New York’s reigning social fixture Derek Blasberg the story by Alexi Lubomirski gets the feel of rooftop party right.  Brana Wolf‘s selective styling never fails to impress and here she features a range of looks, from classic chic Dior to offbeat Miu Miu. All in all the story is gorgeous – with one small flaw, David’s handsome face barely makes it into any images! The party could have benefited from a few shots of Mr. Agbodji.

An Unusual Woman

August 20th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Karl Lagerfeld knows his fashion history, so when he pays tribute to one of his idols it is sure to make for a special editorial. In the latest Bazaar Karl recreates the look of socialite Daisy Fellowes, who was known for her exquisite beauty, effortless chic and eccentric lifestyle. With her dramatic features Iris Strubegger is the perfect choice for the role of Daisy and Brana Wolf‘s elegant styling captures the glamour of society dress in the 1930s-40s, but it is Karl’s affection for Daisy’s legacy that really comes through in the pictures.

Remember The Time?

August 11th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Harper’s Bazaar has a sense of humor, which is why they’re the best purveyor of tongue in cheek editorials around. Their September issue boasts many choice images but the most memorable hands down is their spirited tribute to Michael Jackson. Agyness Deyn and Terry Richardson join forces to celebrate the life of the King of Pop via a story that shows just how iconic his signature style was. Brana Wolf captures the essence of MJ’s look perfectly and Agyness brings her boundless energy to taking on Michael’s onstage persona.

Girl Boy Girl

July 15th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Admit it, studio shoots can get a little tedious, even the most energetic model can only jump so high and rarely is a plain background inspirational. There are of course exceptions to the rule – sometimes all you need are the right pairing of photographer, model and stylist to make an editorial shine. This month’s Bazaar teams up Karolin Wolter‘s effortless chic, Terry Tsiolis attention to detail and Brana Wolf‘s expert styling to create a story that focuses on the power of the clothes themselves. With her lithe figure and edgy crop, everything looks good on Karolin but the tomboy chic ensembles she sports in this story make her look even cooler than usual.
