August 11th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Naomi Campbell heads back to her South London hometown with Bruce Weber at her side for an inspired British Vogue editorial. The supermodel returns to her roots walking down the streets she frequented as a kid and posing alongside the next generation of top talent including Malaika Firth, Riley Montana and Alewya Demmisse. Joined by friend Azzedine Alaia, Tinie Tempah and family members like her mother, Valerie and grandmother Rudy, Naomi presents a new side of herself candid real and every bit as compelling as the glossy image we’ve become familiar with.

Vuitton’s New Groove

June 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As one of the ultimate luxury brands Louis Vuitton has to take things just one step further than the rest. Case in point Nicolas Ghesquière‘s first campaign for LV, which boasts three of photography’s biggest names – Juergen Teller, Bruce Weber and Annie Leibovitz. Each superstar was given free reign to interpret Ghesquière’s fall collection and photograph some of his many muses. Naturally Liya Kebede, Freja Beha Erichsen and Charlotte Gainsbourg make appearances and newcomers Jean Campbell and Kirstin Liljegren star alongside the three Ghesquière vets. The striking Series 1 ads are a completely new direction for LV and serve to usher in the brands thrilling new chapter under Ghesquière.

Edita 24/7

March 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As one of the hardest working models in the biz Edita Vilkeviciute is a constant presence in magazines and campaigns, but this month the dynamic beauty goes the extra mile with a full slate of work that illustrates why she remains consistently in demand.

Dior clad on the cover of Vogue China‘s April issue, Edita captures the refinement of Raf Simons’ designs while adding a touch of sex appeal to the mix. Daniel Jackson‘s simple studio shots keep the focus on Julia von Boehm‘s selection of striking runway pieces and Edita’s powerful gaze. / See more from the new issue on Vogue.com/cn

It is hard to think of another model quite as luminous as Edita, or an actor as fearsome as legendary tough guy, Danny Trejo. Imagine our surprise when Bruce Weber pairs the two up for a sweet editorial heavy on romance, sensuality and the joys of the unexpected. Weber’s signature golden retrievers even make an appearance in this series of sexy portraits / See the full story on M Le Monde

Fashion Fairy Tales

February 12th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

For the Spring 2014 edition, CR Fashion Book is all about Fairy Tales, and Disney better watch out. Per usual, Issue 4 features dual covers, two fashion-forward updates of childhood fantasies shot by Sebastian Faena and Bruce Weber.

Dressing up Spielberg’ classic film, CR’s “E.T.” revisits the 1982 blockbuster with Lindsey Wixson in the role of Gertie (with much better clothes, of course). Photographer  Sebastian Faena brings his trademark for cinematic imagery to iconic scenes pulled from the original film, including the bicycle flying over the moon and E.T.’s glowing fingertips. Magda Laguinge and male model Abel Van Oeveren join Lindsey in showcasing Spring fashions from Prada, Miu Miu, and Proenza Schouler. /

For Bruce Webers take on “Fairy Tales,” CR tapped newcomer and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills offspring Gigi Hadid to star in a hippie-style story. Combining wilderness whimsy with pieces from Givenchy, Giorgio Armani, and Hermès, Weber’s story spotlights Carine Roitfeld’s penchant for striking the perfect balance of hi-lo fashion. Playful, sensual, and super cool, this cover story looks like a perfect spring daydream.

CR Sizzles

September 5th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The headline making CR Fashion Book moment may belong to the inescapable Kim Kardashian, but the fashion story is all about Bruce Weber and his classic style. Capturing the pleasures of youthful lust is one of Weber’s specialities and in the new CR he shoots a host of bright young things led by Karlie Kloss and rising star Emily Ratajkowski. The carefree beauties frolic, kiss and strip down to their skivvies in Weber’s sensual imagery. The intensity and ecstasy is on full display, but with Carine Roitfeld and Bruce at the helm the story’s eroticism is balanced by elegance.

Makeup: Aaron de Mey | Hair: Didier Malige | Prop styling: Dimitri Levas | Models: Karlie Kloss, Emily Ratajkowski, Henrik Fallenius, Saville Dorfman Diogo de Castro Gomes, Marlon Teixera, Caleb Ellis, Kenneth Guidroz Jr & Greg Stellatos

Apolos Latinos

June 26th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Bruce Weber knows a thing or two about male beauty, so when he champions a model you know they are the real deal. In the new V Magazine Spain, Weber focuses on two paragons of the physical ideal, Mario Blanco & Wil Alemán, both of whom smolder in his crisp black and white photographs. Sporting long curly hair and come-hither stares, Wil & Mario represent that most irresistible incarnation of masculine allure, the young Apollo. Mythology comparisons aside, is it any wonder that both these boys have the Weber & V Magazine seal of approval?

A Brief History of Actors & Models

May 11th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

It is a proven fact that Hollywood actors cannot resist models – Leonardo Dicaprio we’re looking at you – so it is no surprise that magazines frequently pair actors & models together in covers and in editorials. We’re not sure why magazines always go for the actor + models combo instead of say actresses and male models (c’mon someone get Scarlett Johansson and Sean O’Pry  together already) but it is a proven formula that can produce beautiful results.

Or incredibly awkward and somewhat confusing results. Lets take a look back at some of our favorite model meets actor moments – the good, the bad and the just plain weird.

2012: W Magazine  : Tom Cruise + Abbey Lee Kershaw & Edita Vilkeviciute by Mario Sorrenti

W Magazine knows how to push all the right buttons don’t they? What better way to promote the blissfully cheesy 80s jukebox musical Rock of Ages than to put its star on the cover looking like a latter day Bret Michaels? Edita Vilkeviciute and Abbey Lee Kershaw are bringing the heat, but we can’t help but feel that Cruise looks more than a little uncomfortable. Perhaps this is simply his version of bored rock star blasé, but he manages to make standing between two of the world’s most beautiful girls look like a chore; to be honest he had more chemistry with Jeremy Renner in MI:4.

2012: Vogue Espana Clive Owen & Toni Garrn by Alexi Lubomirski

Love Toni, Love Clive. Love the city of Paris. Still he looks like her dad in this. Sorry. Unless they were going for the whole “cool dad takes his glamazon daughter to France thing”, if so then it totally works.

2012: American Vogue - Michael Fassbender and Natalia Vodianova by Craig McDean

Let’s be honest they make the ultimate austere couple.

2012: American Vogue - Eddie Redmayne & Karlie Kloss by Mario Testino

Young love minus the pimples.

2011: American Vogue – Jeremy Irvine & Arizona Muse by David Sims

Ok ok. This is a blatant promo for the film War Horse, but hey it made for an amazing editorial, atmospheric, rich and a showcase for some spectacular fashion.

2010 American Vogue - Ewan McGregor & Natalia Vodianova by Peter Lindbergh

Are you starting to see how much American Vogue likes this concept?

2009: American Vogue - Morgan Freeman & Lara Stone by Bruce Weber

Lara Stone and Morgan Freeman taking a walk around New Orleans, oh to have been a fly on the wall for this shoot…

2008: American Vogue - Jon Hamm & Catherine McNeil by Mario Testino

Let Don Draper show you how it’s done. McNeil and Hamm had a great rapport in all their images, in his Vogue profile he describes her as, “adorable and sweet and so much younger than me that it is terrifying.” Age concerns aside the Testino shoot struck the right balance between glamourous fashion fantasy and celebrity profile.

2006: Vanity Fair - George Clooney & Gemma Ward by Norman Jean Roy

The old Hollywood director and his brand new muse – is it too early to label an editorial a modern classic?

2006: American Vogue – Eric Bana & Gisele Bundchen by Mario Testino

Gisele gets roped into this sort of thing a lot…

2005: American Vogue - Josh Hartnett & Gemma Ward

Can you tell that this gorgeous duo started dating after this was shot?

2004: American Vogue Daria Werbowy and Jake Gyllenhaal

Going out on a limb and saying that Jake had the most fun on this shoot.

1992: Kyle Maclachlan & Linda Evangelista for Barneys

In the years prior to the François-Henri Pinault scandal, Linda dated Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan and found time to appear with him in ads for Barneys and a Meisel Vogue story. Unfortunately the couple that poses together doesn’t always stay together and they broke things off in the mid-90s.

1992: Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford by Herb Ritts

Does it get better than this? The answer is no it doesn’t. It does not get any better, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are not going to give you this kind of movie star & model chicness, bask in the glory of this cover.

And none for Leo.
