Bloodline

June 26th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For the Givenchy Fall Winter 2015 campaign Riccardo Tisci kept it in the “just-about” family and when Donatella Versace’s presence was revealed in a preview with Tisci himself and Donatella, it nearly turned the internet upside down. It’s one thing for a designer to be in their own campaign, but including a rival fashion house… In response Tisci has said he considers the Italian empress family and both feel there should be more support within the industry. The brood also features Frankie Rayder, the face of the brand in 1999, amongst the company of Ricardo favorites like Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bochert and Stella Lucia clad in Givenchy. The styling by Carine Roitfeld  is complete with all of Tisci’s subverting calling cards: facial jewelry and septum rings, gothic ornament and severe silhouettes. The familial casting was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott set in the mileu of what could be imagined as their opulent estate. An accompanying campaign video has the stony-faced clan entertaining themselves in the sizable set.

Birth of Marilyn

March 18th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

“The transformation from innocent to icon isn’t easy–or accidental” says the “Jolie Laide” issue of CR Fashion Book. On that note, the story photographed by Sebastian Faena (Los Angeles: Total Management, Paris: Total Management, New York: Total Management) conceptually takes model Kitty Hayes “from child to calendar girl to seductress” as she is transformed into America’s iconic and breathless beauty Marilyn Monroe. The seventeen-year-old Hayes beams a mouth full of hardware and is championed by Carine Roitfeld herself, putting Kitty on the cover. The hardware serves as an unusual but apropos accessory considering the issue’s motif with the breakout from Reading, London, scouted back when she was twelve.

For her metamorphosis Hayes is re-imagined by Roitfeld who costumes her in modern classics with cherry red lips and ribboned, honey locks, and then eventually to the infamous shade of blonde Monroe took as she transformed, all the while wearing her braces. It’s one of the more redolent styling choices (even if not by choice), something that is symbolic of many things: change, imperfection, innocence, and a touchstone of adolescence. That semblance of girlhood is flouted as soon as pigtails become a suggestive, curvy lean and the braces graduate to a nose bandage. The issue is out on newsstands now.

Paige Views

February 27th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

A new model can burst onto the scene in a variety of ways, but now more than ever a strong following on social media can lead to big things in the modeling world. There is no better example of that than rising star Paige Reifler who has both impressive numbers on Instagram and the support of big names like Carine Roitfeld, Bruce Weber, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and Stephen Gan. Making an editorial splash this month Paige appears in in the latest issues of V Magazine, V Man and CR Fashion Book. Showcasing her sensual side while posing wearing little more than a Saint Laurent blanket Paige makes an modern pinup in in Inez & Vinoodh’s portrait. For VMan Paige sports denim cutoffs and a Saint Laurent blazer in Bruce Weber’s naturalistic shots. Finally in CR Paige embodies the spirit of the Bulgari brand for Johnny Dufort as part of a series of Carine helmed fantasy campaigns. Dipped in inky black water and glittering diamonds Paige transforms into a darkly elegant seductress.

But don’t take our word for it, here are a few words from the girl of the moment herself on working with Carine, posing for V and what the energy was like on all three sets.

“V Magazine has been a staple for me since I picked up my first copy years ago. Stephen Gan has mastered combining fashion, music, and culture while keeping V’s innately cool aesthetic. I look up to Stephen tremendously and I feel lucky to know him. It was a dream come true to be featured in the latest issue of V and to shoot with such incredibly talented and iconic photographers, Inez and Vinoodh. The energy on set with Bruce and his team is like I’ve never experienced. I’m so happy I got to work with Bruce and I hope to be able to shoot with him again soon! Shooting V Man with Bruce Weber at his house in Miami felt like a vacation. Carine Roitfelds bold and unique vision behind CR Fashion book is one of a kind. Her creativity is contagious, and to be a part of the latest issue is a thrill.” – Paige Reifler

Pirelli’s Passion

November 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The Pirelli Calendaris a time honored tradition and every year they turn up the heat another notch with the calendar’s blend of haute fashion and sensuality. This year’s cal is a collaboration amongst industry legends with Steven Meisel shooting, Carine Roitfeld styling and Pat McGrath and Guido Palau providing make up and hair. With a team that illustrious you expect only the very best and the final images deliver that level of quality. If the end result seems even more fashion forward than usual, it’s no accident, “I didn’t want to make a conceptual calendar,” says Meisel “or link it to some particular location, but rather to create 12 posters in which women, in all their sensuality, are the absolute protagonists of 12 very different images. Since I wanted to limit the use of clothes and accessories and since I had absolute creative freedom, I found it very exciting to play with the colors, the makeup, and the materials. It was a very rewarding experience.”

Take a first look inside the calendar’s gorgeous shots of Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, Sasha Luss and Anna Ewers below.
