Fashion and photography

The one and only Bruce Weber, along with Nan Bush, relaunch the Bruce Weber website. If you know nothing about fashion, you will still recognize many of the iconic images for which he is responsible. Even more exciting is the prospect of Bruce and Nan stepping into the role of creative directors. Included will be “Bruce’s advertisements, selected short films, music videos and all-new WEBERSODES and short films produced specifically for the web”. This promises to be heaven.

Aww, we’re big fans of Costello Tagliapietra and so happy they finally got to tie the knot!

The very talented stylist and casting director John Tan chats with John Krupa who found his way to modeling, yes, you got it, right here on models.com.

We love that J Crew has gay couples in their catalog. I guess they would be considered the anti LL Bean.

If you happen to have $100,000 to drop, here’s a bespoke library from Assouline, super fabulous, right?

A tumblr suggestion from MDC’s Kevin, this truly made me laugh.

The Original

September 7th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Before Mark and Tyson, there was Jeff. Discovered in 1978 by Bruce Weber, Jeff Aquilon is considered by many to be the first male supermodel. Jeff returns to the front of the camera once again in a shoot by Hedi Slimane, styled by Jay Massacret for VMan #19, their special “Age” issue. VMan interviews the California father of four to find out what he’s been up to since rolling around with Paulina Porizkova on a beach. It’s easy to see why Jeff left such an indelible mark on the industry; his classic features remain eternally iconic. Only in VMan, available everywhere September 9th.


Jeff by Hedi for VMan #19 preview.


From VMAN9, Jeff Aquilon Photographed by Bruce Weber, 1984 in “HISTORY OF THE MALE SUPERMODEL”.

Modeling info:

First Lara Stone for Calvin Klein, now Alessandra Ambrosio for Moschino by Ines & Vinoodh. Sexy is most assuredly back for fall.

We’re also excited that Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa has done away with using size zero models. It’s about time fashion at its highest level pushed for healthier looks and practices.

Oh too cute: Imogen Morris-Clarke has a new blog with a pic of herself as a child.

Here’s Agyness Deynin the trailer of her new film with Linus Roache. She looks damn gorgeous.

Eva Herzigova, mommy and supermodel is interviewed by Elle Magazine.

Gorgeous Brazilian male model, Diogo, what else is new?

Vogue likes new face Barbara Palvin, we do too!

Kate Moss + Mario Testino = new Taschen book on our must have list.

Ryan Kennedy is back with his second interview for this fashion fan.

If you’re from the US, go to Factor Women’s website to find out about their modelsearch. It goes through May.

Miscellaneous:

Here’s 2 items I’m obsessing over, these Vivienne Westwood for Lee jeans, and this leather jacket. I bet Freja Beha would like the jacket :)

V Man’s new issue is out and it’s chockfull of fantastic new shoots including that infamous Shrek shoot that Dreamworks is regretting. We love it!

Congrats Danny (of Igor & Andre) for making it to Teen Vogue! May all your other fashion dreams come true.

Many attended Anna Wintour’s tribute to Irving Penn at Pratt Institute but we especially love Fashionista’s report that shows even Ms Nuclear Wintour can be touched by the legend’s greatness.

Asian Americans in the fashion industry! Some of our favorite people will be here including Phillip Lim and iconic model Jenny Shimizu.

Law Enforcement

March 5th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Don’t mess with Brooke Shields and Elaine Irwin, the two modeling legends lead an all star cast in Bruce Weber‘s campy extravaganza for Vogue Paris. Starring as a pair of femme fatale police officers, the duo shoots guns, puts down criminals and looks fierce while doing so. Candice Swanepoel joins Brooke and Elaine for the high drama send up of television’s kitschy soaps and she looks right at home next to her supermodel co-stars. All in all the story is a dash of much needed humor and Joe McKenna‘s styling is pitch perfect, who knew Versace could look so good next to police blues?
