Serpent’s Kiss

December 12th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

The latest edition of Oyster Magazine features the dangerous curves of Daisy Lowe and a slithering serpent twisting its way around her body. The imagery is classic, a beautiful woman as the ultimate temptation, a motif we’ve seen in everything from renaissance paintings to Avedon portraits, but Will Davidson makes it feel fresh. Focusing on the slinky selection of Stella McCartneyLouis Vuitton & Azzedine Alaia chosen by Stevie Dance and Daisy’s sixties chic look, Davidson crafts a story that is stark yet sensual.

Fox Force 5

September 16th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

We can’t help but love i-D‘s commitment to showcasing fashion’s most beautiful faces and with five new covers featuring 5 exemplary models there is even more to love this fall. The ‘Define Yourself’ issue’s cover stars are girls whose personality and panache have set them apart from other models, the legendary Kristen McMenamy stands alone as an icon, while Liya Kebede has moved from supermodel to celebrated actress.  Relative newcomers like Joan Smalls, Lindsey Wixson and Daisy Lowe are all on their way towards the stratosphere and attention grabbing covers for each girl are sure to become collectibles.

Mixed Media

May 6th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Glen Luchford pushes into fresh territory for V65. Working with artists, The Boys Collective, Luchford creates new portraits of Tao Okamoto, Daisy Lowe and V A Model winner Lea Groesland, using a combination of archival images, illustration and paper cut outs. The mixture makes for an unusual editorial, but we’ve come to expect originality from Luchford and V.

Sexy Back

November 24th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Love him or hate him, Terry Richardson knows how to get your attention. His oft imitated but never duplicated style is sexy and memorable, and for the 2010 Pirelli calendar, Richardson brings a touch of cheekiness and sensuality with his snapshots of scantily-clad beauties. Whether it is the ethereal, Georgina Stojiljkovic posing with a very happy sloth or Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Marloes Horst looking pristine on white sand beaches; each picture is provocative yet playful.

The fabulous Tom Pecheux is Estee Lauder‘s new creative director.

Where Alexander Wang goes, models follow….See Natasha Poly, Maryna Linchuk, et al, help Alex throw a party for his best friend interior designer Ryan Korban.

We think it’s so great that Lara Stone 1-thinks that men don’t like her 2-eats pizza. The fact she is so honest about her her alcoholism and stint in rehab is extremely brave and refreshing.

Check out Dior Homme face Francisco Lachowski in an online editorial for V Magazine.

After simmering for several years, Shu Pei has finally reached a boiling point this fall with a fantastic S/S 10 show season. Read an interview with the Chinese beauty.

Britain’s IT girls Georgia May Jagger and Daisy Lowe are new favorites of Versace and Louis Vuitton, (respectively).

S/S 10 Top Newcomer Kristy Kaurova can certainly move

Behind the scenes, Eniko Mihalik on a water buffalo

And what everyone’s been waiting for, the 2009 Pirelli Calendar by Terry Richardson. Italian Vanity Fair has the preview with the full cast (casting by Jennifer Starr). Fashionologie via Italian Vanity Fair.

———————————————–

One of our favorite stylists, Nicola Formichetti is featured on the Cut.

We’re all for more inclusiveness (British Vogue’s Alexander Schulman tackles the size 0 problem). Here’s Jezebel’s interesting take on it.

Here’s another interview for the Brazilian fans.. the very lovely Izabel Goulart.

Funny, funny, funny; French Vogue is “anti-pants” so says Jezebel.

There’s a new documentary coming out about Brazilian models. Though sadly it’s in Portugese only, who cares when you can look the gorgeous Gisele Bundchen, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana, Caroline Trentini, Adriana Lima and Caroline Ribeiro emote in their native language. (Take a peek at rarely seen Cyril Brule, owner of Viva and Marilyn Gauthier, owner of Marilyn’s and photographer Peter Beard).

If you don’t know JD Ferguson‘s background, read about the model/photographer/general man about town and his fun times with Karl Lagerfeld and the top models.

Sans Artifice is a fan of photographer Norman Jean Roy,  he “brings out the Vogue ethos“.

New Dutch model agency to watch! Modelution is featured on the Ones2Watch.
Continuing in the same vein as Sarah Ziff in Picture Me, Frockwriter explores the dark side of the industry.
Gisele AND Jesus on the same runway…. The Brazilians are buzzing about the Colcci show.

If you’re in Chicago, Wednesday June 24th, go meet Elite Chicago’s scouts (click on the link for age and height requirements).

Home of Johanna Knepper (hot new face of Givenchy show this past spring), Just WM Paris has a  new blog! 

Terry shooting the 11 beauties;  Eniko Mihalik, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Daisy Lowe, Gracie Carvalho, Marloes Horst, Lily Cole, Ana Beatriz Barros, Miranda Kerr, Georgina Stojiljkovic.
