Fueled Up

December 3rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

We’re used to seeing Daria Strokous looking beyond elegant in ads for Jil Sander and Dior, but it is always interesting to see a photographer take the refined beauty in another direction. Hugh Lippe uncovers the edge beneath Ms. Strokous’ refined exterior in a new story for FAT Magazine that showcases another side of the Russian beauty. Focusing on a look that is raw and edgy with a hint of danger, Lippe along with stylist Joanne Blades create a compelling alternative to the typical fashion edit – check out the story, exclusive outtakes and the accompanying fashion film below.

As Seen on TV!

January 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Were there an actual Italian Vogue channel we would watch it 24/7 as it would most certainly trump some of the lackluster “fashion” television on the air right now. The Conde Nast entertainment division has yet to provide us with such an incredible gift, but if the January Vogue Italia coverstory is anything to go by there is certainly potential for hilarity and hijinks. Sending up the popular Home Shopping networks with a Steven Meisel story featuring top models is a brilliant idea and one that translates beautifully. While we doubt that you’re ever going to be able to buy that Chanel gown off the back of Daria Strokous QVC, it is amazing to see the land of snuggies and SlapChops invaded by high fashion. With stellar hair by Jimmy Paul and gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana makeup by Pat McGrath all this story needed as a cameo by Joan Rivers to push it over the top and into the realm of iconic editorials.

Sugar & Spice

December 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Who says high fashion has to be complicated or subversive? Steven Meisel takes Kati Nescher and Daria Strokous back to the malt shop in a frothy and frilly ad for Louis Vuitton‘s spring collection. In keeping with the retro theme of the collection, Daria and Kati play around on a shiny pink set that looks culled from Happy Days. As always the accessories are front and center, with pastel Speedys and transparent Lock-its providing another dose of eye candy in a campaign that is practically cavity inducing.
