The Halloween Edit

October 31st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion has always held Halloween in a special esteem. Of all the holidays it allows for the most outlandish changes and transformations which means it is right up fashion’s alley. As such there are countless editorials that serve to inspire a bit of seasonal cheer, or at least serve as appropriate fodder for Halloween costumes. Take a look back at 10 editorials that make us think of all-Hallows eve and share your favorite spooky or kooky fashion story in the comments.

01. Ph. Tim Walker
Publication: Harper’s Bazaar
Who better to look to on Halloween than legendary filmmaker (and master of the spooky story) Tim Burton? Bazaar’s fashion trip through Burton’s filmography is a creepy classic.

Halloween3

02. Ph. Jean-Francois Campos
Publication: Flair
Campos’ Nosferatu-esque zombies might not be as scary as the characters on The Walking Dead but it made for a great spooky editorial.

Halloween1H5

03. Ph. Steven Klein (Art Partner)
Publication: Candy Magazine
There are quite a few Steven Klein stories that could be considered Halloween ready, but his fantastical male pregnancy saga for Candy is probably the most outlandish.

Halloween5

04. Ph. Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello
Publication: Numéro
Sofia & Mauro took inspiration from Divine for this out there story that captures all the kitschy goodness of John Waters’ over the top film.

Halloween1

05. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: American Vogue
The way in which each and every model on this story took on a classic rock persona was downright inspirational – Omhyra as Prince, Karolina Kurkova as Marilyn Manson, Sophie Dahl as Debbie Harry – the work by Pat McGrathGrace Coddington and Orlando Pita on this story was nothing short of iconic.

Halloween2

06. Ph. Peter Lindbergh
Publication: Vogue Paris
Some of fashion’s own characters make for incredible costumes, case in point Sasha P morphing into John Galliano for Vogue Paris.

Halloween6

07. Ph. Thomas Lagrange (Total Management)
Publication: Vogue Japan
You can’t have a Halloween roundup without a little vampirism and LaGrange’s slick beauty story puts a chic twist on bloodsucking.

Halloween1H6

08. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: Vogue Italia
The inspiration for Meisel’s ‘The Discipline of Fashion’ was Ethel Granger, a woman who tightlaced for years in order to achieve a 13 inch waist! You don’t need to go that far to get into the story or the incredible, unnerving visuals.

Halloween1H1

09. Ph. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
Publication: V Magazine
A before and after of epic proportions where Eniko, Anja and Raquel are transformed via the use of Paddy Hartley’s transparent face masks. The clear plastic and cutouts distort the wearers face by changing its proportions in ways that range from beautiful to grotesque.

Halloween1H2

10. Ph. Craig McDean
Publication: American Vogue
Before everyone was running out to grab their Avengers costume, Coco Rocha was playing fashion superhero in the pages of Vogue with this memorable McDean story.

Halloween1H3

Powerful Soul

November 16th, 2011 |Posted by models.com

The ever so fascinating Lea T shines with a bevy of male models in the latest issue of Candy Magazine by Andreas Larsson. The Givenchy muse sports a both masculine and feminine looks and even tangos with fellow androgynous model Andrej Pejic in Yves Saint Laurent. Riccardo Tisci gushes about her saying that she is a “unique, rare, natural beauty, a combination of purity, hardness, romanticism, and agressiveness: all components of androgyny that are bound to both sexes,” and we couldn’t agree more!

Candy Darling

November 7th, 2011 |Posted by Betty

The always daring Candy Magazine‘s new issue has Chloe Sevigny posing as Terry Richardson and Mariano Vivanco shooting a gaggle of very masculine male faces in full bunny regalia and some pretty serious makeup by the always amazing Alex Box. The focus on the male body is stronger than ever and the fascination with Andrej Pejic shows that new boundaries for male beauty are constantly being reset. Candy’s celebration of transvestism, transsexuality, cross dressing and androgyny seems more relevant than ever. (For more Candy, go to their website).


(Not in order) Andrey Zakharov, Matt Trethe, Sam Lawson, Stefan Pollmann, Thom Morrell by Mariano Vivanco, styled by Luke Day, set design by Gary Card.
