Cover Confidential

March 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Feburary and March are big business for fashion magazines with glossies often debuting some of their best and brightest content during these months focused on spring collections, renewal and change. Take a look back at some of the most interesting covers from the boundlessly creative, to the simply beautiful.

PURE BEAUTY

Antidote Magazine‘s romance issue boasted multiple covers by Cuneyt Akeroglu featuring some of the world’s most beautiful women. United by their simple yet effective photography and their chic take on the magazine’s pristine subjects these covers were something special.

As one of fashion’s coolest faces Leona Binx Walton is typically photographed looking grungy, avant garde or off-kilter. Her Self Service cover with it’s effective beauty statement and clean layout showed another side. Collier Schorr portrait brings out Binx’s beauty, while maintaining her character.

THE BEST OF CELEBRITY

There are few actresses as effervescent as Marion Cotillard and Interview Magazine‘s March cover captured the La Vie En Rose star’s elegant side with a shot by Craig McDean that positively crackles with good ol’ fashioned glamour. Styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Christophe Danchaud and a 40s coif by Sam McKnight the image strikes the right balance between retro film siren and modern glamour - as does the accompanying fashion story. 

On the flip side, Dazed & Confused‘s rough and tumble cover of Scarlett Johansson finds the star’s inner bad girl and brings it to the forefront with a vibrant shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby . The combo of red background and Saint Laurent biker jacket and Scar-Jo’s glare makes for an appealing contrast to the typical smiling celebrity glamour shot.

MINIMAL MARVELS

You can’t go wrong with a picture of Daria Werbowy and The Last Magazine served up an epic large format image the superstar looking foreboding for it’s spring issue –  Mikael Jansson‘s in your face shot captures Werbowy at her rawest and best.

The Gentlewoman always errs on the side of minimalism, but the pulpy red cover of Vivienne Westwood by Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) was the perfect merger of timelessness and modernity.

CREATIVITY RULES

Nick Knight‘s trippy photography has always struck a chord with surrealists and on the cover of GARAGE‘s spring/summer edition he twists and morphs Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne into unbidden creatures designs that were eventually tattooed onto the skin of Garage readers – how’s that for taking things to the next level.

E.T. got a fashion makeover with Lindsey Wixson taking over the frontpage of CR Fashion Book with an expressive Sebastian Faena image that puts Wixson’s otherworldly visage to good use with a sweet nod to an 80s favorite.

DESIGNER DOMINATION

Karl Lagerfeld’s watercolor inspired spring Chanel collection has proved a hit with editors, in addition to appearing in the pages of just about every magazine imaginable his paint by numbers dresses found themselves on a variety of covers in March, most notably Vogue China, where two of the designer’s creations took center stage.

Not one to be outdone, Miuccia Prada also made a strong showing this March (and April) with a variety of painterly spring looks from her collections showing up on the cover of several different magazines.

Queen Cara

i-D Magazine

Fashion’s current queen of all media grabs her scepter and poses up a storm in the pages of i-D. With an Elizabethan meets avant-garde theme (very Vivienne Westwood) and a wild array of new fashion, the cover and accompanying story are an off-kilter take on tradition. With Cara set to take Hollywood by storm (the Brit beauty has two films slated for 2014) it is great to see images that put her flair for drama to good use.

“Monsters Inc.”

August 2nd, 2013 |Posted by models.com

Love Magazine – ‘The Collections’ from Yvan Fabing on Vimeo.

Love Magazine‘s 5th anniversary issue, otherwise known as “The Sweetie Issue” is currently out on newsstands with an assortment of exciting and perhaps unexpected covers to collect, from Rosie Huntington Whiteley to Cara Delevingne to Minnie Mouse. Covers aside, however, it’s the fall fashion inside the magazine that has captured our attention- photographer Sølve Sundsbø‘s “Monsters Inc.” shoot to be exact. The playful editorial, styled by Panos Yiapanis, features some of our favorite models, some established and others fresh-faced, in an array of wild prints and textures, along with fierce styles that just wouldn’t be complete without fur, metallics, and sequins. The entire story is brought to life in an energetic video by Yvan Fabing, with a killer soundtrack courtesy of Brooke Candy. We hope you’re just as excited as we are to try out these very ‘monstrous’ looks this fall.

Models: Anne Vyalitsyna, Erika Wall, Julia Nobis, Joanna Tatarka, Kirsten Owen, Malaika Firth, Ondria Hardin, Rebeca Marcos, Stella Tennant, Sybil Buck

A thrilling exploration of youth and the raw fashion straight off the fall runways. Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Georgia May Jagger, Chiharu Okunugi, Sam Rollinson, Jonathan Bauer Hayden, Jacob Morton and Dominic Myatt play the eccentric cast of characters in this unexpectedly gritty cut and paste fantasy. Mert and Marcus’ artistic images combined with Yiapanis’ exceptional styling makes for an editorial that stands out from the crowd, even with the dearth of September issues headed our way.

A Furry Affair

August 1st, 2013 |Posted by models.com

It’s that time of year again, summer is coming to an end and the highly anticipated September issues will soon be taking over the magazine shelves. Vogue Japan has Cara Delevingne on its cover, but let’s set our focus inside the magazine, on Catherine McNeil and her mile-long legs. In “A Furry Affair”, photographed by Emma Summerton, McNeil is captured looking perfectly polished and sophisticated in glam furs, strappy sandals and satchels, a chic black bob, and deep red lips, and holds a beautifully mysterious gaze away from the camera. Take a look at the breathtaking editorial below, which completely captures the ‘wow’ factor of the anticipated issue.

The Biz : The Week That Was

April 26th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

GALLIANO + PARSONS

John Galliano and Eva Green by Ellen von Unwerth

Who better to teach young designers about the ups and downs of the business than a true fashion veteran, former Dior creative director John Galliano is set to teach a Master Class at Parsons . The series, cheekily entitled ‘Show Me Emotion’ “seeks to engage its participants by provoking the power of emotion in context of fashion practice and exploration of intuitive, perceptive manners of investigational making.” Sounds like a fascinating opportunity for the students lucky enough to gain entrance. / LUCKY


PUNK STORIES

In the weeks leading up to the Met Gala Vogue and punk are becoming increasingly interwined. Case in point, the magazine’s newly launched ‘Punk Stories’ film series. Enlisting a new female director each week to create a cutting-edge fashion film centered on the theme of punk the films provide a sophisticated and luxurious take on the DIY down and dirty ethos of punk. Already they’ve had Cara Delevingne rocking out in a kinetic film by Quentin Jones (Cadence New York) that capitalizes on Cara’s larger than life personality and the rock n’roll spirit of punk’s evolution. The week prior Dree Hemingway mixed punk with New Wave glam in Mary Nighy’s soulful short.


NO ANGEL

Victoria’s Secret lashes back at former contest winner, Kylie Bisutti whose interviews regarding her forthcoming book have sent shockwaves through the blog-o-sphere. In an official statement the mega-brand denied Ms. Bisutti had ever been in the running for Angel status and said the following:

“Ms. Bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with Victoria’s Secret. In 2009, Ms. Bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn’t worked for us since that year. The prize for the winning contestant was the unique opportunity to a one-time walk in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Ms. Bisutti also participated in a swim photo shoot in 2009. That was the extent of Ms. Bisutti’s involvement with Victoria’s Secret. She was never a Victoria’s Secret “Angel” as defined by the terms of our Angel model contract. And contrary to Ms. Bisutti’s claims, she was never offered any subsequent modeling contracts or opportunities with Victoria’s Secret despite her multiple appeals for further work. She has repeatedly fabricated her work experience with Victoria’s Secret – including a relationship that simply did not exist.


COACH & REED PART WAYS

In other designer news, Reed Krakoff Exits Coach after 16 years. Krakoff will step down from his position as president and executive creative director in 2014, to focus exclusively on his eponymous luxury line. Krakoff’s utilitarian designs and style savvy helped bring Coach into the present and revitalized the brand’s aesthetic. Coach is looking for a replacement to take the reigns once Krakoff leaves, but a name has yet to be announced.  / WWD
