Black Magic

October 16th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

What happens when a fearless model and a boundary pushing photographer join forces? Take a look inside the latest issue of the journal at Hugh Lippe‘s witchy story starring Crystal Renn. The edgy shoot is steeped in occult imagery – pentagrams, brooms and other dark artifacts, but things never get overly literal. Instead we’re treated to a take no prisoners editorial that pits extreme luxury against a rustic setting. Stylist Natasha Royt works wild looks from Celine, Valentino and Haider Ackermann into the mix upping the fashion quotient. Crystal bares her body and her soul as Lippe captures her uninhibited performance to create an exciting collaboration between photographer and model.

Pre-Fall Finery

December 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Pre-fall’s appealing fashions just keep on coming, every day a new set of designers releases their collection and across the board there have been beautiful looks to love. Take a look at a few of our favorites and tell us yours in the comments.

For pre-fall Prabal Gurung namechecked Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet as a reference, so we knew we were in for an exciting mix of the old and new. Mixed prints are all the rage, but no one does them with as much finesse. We’ve seen Gurung do impressive riffs on the traditional floral in previous seasons, but pre-fall’s lush interpretations, whether embroidered or printed are simply stunning. Add in the Mexican textile inspired pieces, Gurung’s unique take on tweed and of course and of course those intense colors and you have the makings of a compelling collection.

Cool girls rejoice, your wardrobe has arrived! Lazaro and Jack never disappoint and their pre-fall look is all about texture, wearability and adaptable pieces that fit right in to your life. We’re already craving those incredible metallics separates and the brand new Courier bag, another surefire Proenza hit.


JASON WU

Is it just us or has the Wu girl evolved into a very sexy miss? S/S saw the designer in a decidedly daring mood with his tasteful dominatrix inspired styles adding just the right amount of darkness to his repertoire. Pre-fall finds Wu continuing to traipse down the road less traveled, with a series of revealing looks that flirt with danger. Sequined gowns with transparent panels showing off a touch of skin, leather accents, touches of gold – it all makes for one scintillating package.


ZAC POSEN

Never one to skimp on the glamour, Zac Posen gave fans a suitably decadent pre-fall collection, filled to the brim with dresses fit for the galas, film premieres and invite-only fêtes Posen girls find themselves attending at least once a week. Opera singer Maria Callas was on Posen’s mind this season and it shows in the diva-worthy ball gowns and theatrical details. Posen makes clothing for women with personality and flair, but just about anyone would look camera ready in that red satin number.

Double Vision : Alexander Wang

November 15th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

As fashion’s current king of downtown cool, Alexander Wang has perfected a look that is both eye-catching and easy going. It isn’t unusual to see Wang’s wares popping up in fashion glossies month after month, but it is interesting to see how his look is interpreted by a variety of talents. One of last season’s most memorable and popular Wang pieces was the fishnet turtleneck, a statement item that adds a touch a mystery to any ensemble. Most stylists didn’t stray too far from the runway vision of this particular look, but every so often the versatility of this staple was showcased via a well-timed change of pace. With the addition of the equally ubiquitous Jil Sander pink overcoat, or a bit of menswear inspired Paul & Joe, the mood shifts completely. That said, the Wang turtleneck looks just as good all by itself, revealing a touch of come-hither skin or adding another layer of sexy to a pop star’s daring repertoire.

Ghost of Love

March 15th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Photographer Mikael Jansson and makeup master Mark Carrasquillo collaborate on a special film for Intermission Magazine starring the always exciting Crystal Renn. The provocative piece is certain to raise a few eyebrows with its mix of vampy makeup and focus on Renn’s famous physique. If the clip gives you a David Lynch-esque vibe with its moody atmosphere, that might be because Lynch himself provides the music. Check out the film below or on Intermission’s website.

The Institute

March 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Klein‘s editorial work has always teetered on the edge of darkness, with subject matter ranging from robotic housewives, to maniacal couples being ever present in his images. For the latest issue of Interview Klein creates a violent fantasy world that seems ripped from the headlines. Crystal Renn stars as an abused asylum patient and Karolina Kurkova as her icy nurse captor. As usual Ludivine Poiblanc‘s styling is perfection and Klein’s photography has an eerie cinematic feel, but does the extreme bondage and dark nature of the story work for you? Let us know in the comments!
