Testino Obsession

September 29th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

When Vogue Japan and Mario Testino (Art Partner) join forces anything is possible! The legendary photographer takes over the magazine, serving as the first guest editor in 15 years and bringing his unique viewpoint to each and every page. This is the 8th international Vogue issue that Testino has guest edited and if he ever tires of being one of the world’s foremost photographers he could easily slip into the role of editor. The art direction, design and editorials featured within are all top notch. Take a first look at the stories within and see what Testino and Vogue Japan’s Editor in Chief Mitsuko Watanabe have to say about this very special edition.

MARIO TESTINO: “I have been going to Japan on and off since the 1980s and since my very first experiences there I felt a spirit I really connected with. I found, on so many levels, that whatever the Japanese did, they did with absolute and unwavering conviction. It was this, which I came to view as obsession; it is a way of being that I have followed in my own life and career.

MITSUKO WATANABE: “This is the first time Testino has worked with VOGUE JAPAN. I am delighted that we have been able to realize this memorable project in which Mario has undertaken everything from photo shooting to editing to mark this special 15th anniversary, and also that the pages are magnificently finished to an outstandingly high degree of quality. This superb quality has greatly impressed me personally more than anything else.”

We Are Vandals

December 5th, 2013 |Posted by victoria

A brand new bi-annual international publication— Vandals Magazine- arrives next week in Paris and we get a special sneak peak at the special portrait series, “We are Vandals” by Mathieu Vladimir Alliard featuring some of the season’s most in demand faces. The black and white series, with the concept to keep the girls as raw as possible “using no hair styling, and employing only one or two bold colors of makeup to create a ‘vandalish’ effect”, is featured here on Models.com exclusively (the issue itself is color and will have different images). The magazine, a 400 page tome, was developed in Paris, produced in New York, and designed in Barcelona, giving it a truly global air. With no ads and based solely on content, Vandals looks to be more than just your average fashion magazine. The magazine’s first issue ‘Volume 0’ will be printed in limited edition and is available on December 16th in Europe, and internationally soon after. Preorder your copy from now-December 15th, and for more from Vandals visit We Are Vandals’s website.

In the meantime, see the preview below; let us know in the comments which is your favorite portrait.

Double Dose

October 22nd, 2013 |Posted by models.com

The latest work from Tokyo born beauty, Chiharu Okunugi, certainly stands out to us for all the right reasons. In Vogue China’s “Street Leather” by Lachlan Bailey (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists), Chiharu looks sleek and chic in glam pieces and leather ensembles, whereas in Vogue Japan’s “Destiny of Punk” we get to see an edgier side of the model. Chiharu gets a punk-rock makeover in the editorial by David Slijper, pairing together an array of rebellious clothing and accessories. Chiharu delivers consistently flawless work, and her most recent Vogue editorials prove this to be absolutely true.
