Beauty Rebel

August 20th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

We love a magazine with a distinctive point of view and brand new biannual Beauty Rebel, is as distinctive as it gets. With a focus on all things beauty and the endless allure of cosmetics, stunning makeup and amazing hair, the glossy rejects overly photoshopped imagery in favor of the glamour of the 70s, 80s and even the 90s supermodel era. Who better to appear on the cover than ultimate fashion rebel, Daphne Guinness, who pays tribute to another legend, the late, great Hedy Lamarr.

Inside an array of beauty centric content from behind the scenes shots of top models, to fresh editorials featuring inventive hair and makeup is certain to delight.

Bits & Bytes: Envy-ious

The gorgeous Zoe Saldana behind the scenes on the set of her Calvin Klein Underwear Envy shoot. There are few actresses who have that crossover appeal when it comes to the modeling territory but Zoe for Envy is genius indeed! See more images from the campaign by Mikael Jansson right here. (images courtesy of Calvin Klein).

Speaking of Calvin Klein, the legendary man himself was at the ACRIA fundraiser this week, looking absolutely debonair with the one and only Daphne Guinness. Also at the event: former wife, photographer Kelly Klein and the rarely seen top lensman Steven Klein. (images Patrick McMullen, courtesy of CK)

Fashion and Miscellaneous:

Fashion’s Night Out, get the details here, it’s going to be fabulous!

We adore Edward Enninful, the masterful stylist for American and Italian Vogue. Read British Vogue‘s interview with him where he talks about with whom he would love to work. If you missed our interview with the incredible and humble Edward (can you tell we are fans), read it here now.

Who do you think are the most influential street style bloggers? Fashionista lists their favorites.

Read Dazed Digital‘s interview with Theo Stanley, cinematographer of the new Y-3 campaign.

We love Natalie Joos the super fashionable  casting director. Style.com obviously does too with their profile on her, check out if she thinks the trend towards “bigger” models will last.

You know, we obsess over Lady Gaga for her fashion daring and devil may care attitude but this is why we REALLY adore her… responding to hate with love.

Modeling News:

Fascinating. Frockwriter talks about the various issues surrounding Lara Stone‘s suing over her French Playboy pictures.

Freja is certainly killing it. Keep track of all her top work by her favorite fan, right here.

See how Rose reconciles her dislike of a certain fashion photographer with her love of Freja.

We don’t find suicides funny or artistic. And neither does Frockwriter. This gives us the creeps.

Made in Brazil loves Brazilian models and they love them right back.

What do you think? Do you think Volodya looks like a male Natalia Vodianova? He is Russian too of course.

See new face Johan Novarino (below) at Marion Vain. We love those Swedes.
