Dog Day Afternoon

June 24th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Ryan McGinley and his subversive self takes the Californian beauty, Estee Lauder supermodel Carolyn Murphy and throws things at her: bottles, bowls and dog kisses. The Nowness’ exclusive film, with makeup by James Kaliardos, styling by Jay Massacret and golfish strewn hair by Kevin Ryan is a tribute to fashion as art and fun. Ms Murphy doesn’t take herself too seriously all while still looking gorgeous, which shows why she’s still at the top of her game. Go watch the short film now

Bits & Bytes: The Face

March 19th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

To go along with our Kate Moss post on her enduring beauty, is the editorial on Sean O’Pry by David Sims. His perfect face is near legendary at this point which is perfect for the Ralph Lauren American heroes story boldly styled by Beat Bolliger. (pic courtesy of VNY, more pics see here)
——————————————————————————-
Funny. Fashion Week Daily talks about fashion people who don’t “own” their own name.

Photographer Magnus Unnar talks to Interview Magazine

Karl Lagerfeld is alternately supremely witty/insightful and so out of touch in this Vice interview. That’s what makes him Kaiser Karl and why we’re always fascinated. You’ll also see how handsome he was (with a still shot of Karl in an Andy Warhol flick).

Swide interviews Maurilio Carnino for MTC Casting about the casting business. He talks about that infamous Donna Karan show where the lights fell on the audienc. We adore his new site for real people, A Streetcat named Desire.

The gorgeous Teresa Lourenco who we ran into last night, looks amazing as a pregnant mommy.

Remember the D&G supermodel fragrance ad with Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Tyson Ballou, etc? The Brazilian face in that ad Fernando Fernandes got into a tragic car crash and is paralyzed from the waist down. Look what he’s doing now.

Here’s a V Magazine update:
3 incredible videos of everyone’s favorite Raquel Zimmerman by Mario Sorrenti, Carolyn Murphy and gorgeous boy models by Sebastian Faena and Kirsten Dunst looking like an old time movie star by Mario Testino. Below the 2 V Man/Ford Models winners. Can’t wait to see the covers shot by Terry Richardson.

Ad Age

January 15th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Millions of fashion ads are duking it out for your attention this month but who will win? Sonia Rykiel, Moschino and Tom Ford, each offer up different versions of glamour atuned to their image of their brand; for Rykiel Alana Zimmer and Marike Le Roux look very Parisian chic, while Moschino goes for irony with a kitschy shot of Isabeli Fontana by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, dark lipliner and piles of gold jewelry have never looked so good. Finally, Tom Ford gives us a sexed up Carolyn Murphy paying special attention to ‘A Single Man’ star Nicholas Hoult. Tan lines aside, Ms. Murphy looks phenomenal – I completely forgot this ad was selling glasses…

So tell us, which ad grabs you the most?

Born In The U.S.A.

October 16th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The American wave has begun! Modeling is an international business – a great girl is just as likely to be from Sao Paulo as she is from St. Petersburg and scouts have always searched far and wide for the next major face. Sometimes though, the best girls are quite literally the ones next door. The American model is experiencing a very timely resurgence and many of this season’s top catwalkers hail from exotic locales like New Jersey, California and Texas.

Given the variety of cultural backgrounds in the states American models represent an especially diverse range of beauty but all are blessed with the same down to earth charm that makes them favorites. Take a look back at some of modeling’s most memorable pitchwomen – Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks, Carolyn Murphy, Bridget Hall, Hilary Rhoda – the list goes on and on, there is just something unique about the way the right American beauty can connect with an audience. Here are a few of this seasons much buzzed about newcomers whose personality and appeal make them the standouts of the new American wave.

hannahhhh

Hannah Holman

With her platinum tresses and icy blue eyes Hannah is the definition of a classic All American beauty (were seeing shades of Kate Bosworth) and fresh off the heels of her Miu Miu campaign she blazed through a selective season – only the best would do. Though she made appearances at nearly every European show worth talking about we couldn’t help but notice her turns at Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel – it seems a certain austere German fashion legend has taken note of Hannah’s considerable charms.

taytay

Taylor Kraemer

With her winsome look and impressive nearly 6ft height Taylor Kraemer is hard to miss. Blessed with warm brown eyes and beachy blonde hair she made a splash at Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs. The Cincinnati native has the personality and it factor to make a impact – don’t be surprised if you see her lovely face in a major campaign.

jacq

Jacquelyn Jablonski

So many shows, so little time – Top 10 Newcomer Jacquelyn was easily one of the most in demand girls walking this season. With a staggering 58 shows under her belt there was simply no stopping her. Something about Jacquelyn’s languid look resonated with casting directors and designers alike and she is quickly becoming a fan favorite too. The Jersey born beauty is sure to keep the momentum going with appearances in the most significant magazines and campaigns.

rel1

R’el Dade

As easily one of the most elegant faces to emerge this season R’el was poised for greatness. Her flawless proportions could be found on the runway of any designer looking for an added touch of class – note her refined presence at Dior and Giorgio Armani as well as a confident stroll down the catwalk for Hermes. The sophisticated Texan teen is also making her mark editorially with stories in Numero and an upcoming slate of work with a few choice photographers.

wixon

Lindsey Wixson

What more can be said about the 100% original California girl who snagged the opening slot at Prada and the closing spot at Miu Miu? The lovely Top 10 Newcomer is poised to have a bright future and with such a stellar season Lindsey, will be one of the most watched faces when it comes to campaigns.

lyndsey

Lyndsey Scott

Ever since she was discovered on Models.com and whisked away to a Calvin exclusive Lyndsey hasn’t missed a beat. Coming back stronger than ever this season with impressive showings at Vuitton, Prada and Gucci, her one of a kind look coupled with that ferocious walk have pushed her to the top of the list when it comes to fresh talent.

kekke

Keke Lindgard

This Hawaiian beauty’s impeccable season included Lanvin, Celine, Prada and Dolce – first rate bookings any girl but especially for someone so new. With a face that calls to mind the glowing beauty of Angela Lindvall and Bridget Hall Keke’s appeal is evident and sure to crossover into major editorial success.

April 14th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

If you are like most of us in the industry, Steven Meisel holds an extra special fascination because of his prodigious talent and vision, his longevity and his ability to instantaneously create a star. What also sets him apart from any other photographer is, in the word’s of Vogue‘s Jonathan Van Meter an “almost impenetrable mystique“. It was with great excitement that we read the excerpted interview with Meisel on Style.com. There are so many intriguing and never known details about the legendary lensman. The complete story appears in the May Vogue along with some personal pictures and a page of “Defining Moments” when he captures the changing moods of fashion. Get 2 copies. It’s most definitely a keeper. (Read excerpted interview here)
