Striking A Chord

February 8th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

This season has been full of striking ads and the latest batch doesn’t disappoint when it comes to arresting visuals.

ALEXANDER McQUEEN
Ph. David Sims | Stylist: Camilla Nickerson

McQueen goes angelic for S/S with Zuzanna Bijoch posing in a heavenly Sims shot that calls to mind classic religious imagery.

CELINE
Ph. Juergen Teller

Juergen’s ads for Celine are instantly recognizable, but throw in the all star cast of Marie Piovesan and Stella Tennant and you have the makings of an unforgettable ad.

PRABAL GURUNG
Ph. Daniel Jackson | Stylist: Tiina Laakkonen | Hair: Didier Malige | Makeup: Hannah Murray

Is there anything Candice Swanepoel can’t do? The South African beauty pulls off dark hair and some serious yoga poses in the debut ads for Prabal’s label. Those stunning violet dresses from the show have never looked better.

EDUN
Ph. Ryan McGinley | Models: Bradley Soileau, Charlotte Free, David, Dempsey Stewart, Ehren Dorsey, and Herieth Paul

Butterflies float across the page in Ryan McGinley’s ethereal shots for Edun. The soft colors and cast of ultra-cool newcomers makes this shoot memorable.

Rock of Ages

July 6th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Hedi Slimane goes for glam rock gusto in the latest issue of V Magazine: the Transformation issue promises shift perceptions and with Anja Rubik becoming into 70s style rocker for Slimane’s lens it looks like V72 is off to a good start. Rubik’s new guise is crafted by Melanie Ward, with pieces from Isabel Marant, Balmain and Tom Ford mixed with vintage from What Goes Around Comes Around. Peter Klein‘s incredible sets add a bit of authentic edge into the mix and Didier Malige and Linda Cantello complete Anja’s transformation with a little slicked back hair and glitter liner, but it is Ms. Rubik who brings the necessary attitude with twisting poses and glaring looks.

V72 The Transformation Issue hits stands July 7th

Bits & Bytes: Iman by Christiaan

December 8th, 2010 |Posted by Betty


Iman by Christiaan.

“A picture is a poke in the eye of that reality.”
-Christian Houtenbos from Intermission Magazine interview.

Intermission Magazine celebrates their new website with a story by top hairstylist Christiaan on his 40+ years of polaroids. We spot Iman, Grace Jones and Calvin Klein, from the 70′s/80′s. Some of our favorites? Janice Dickenson’s pre-surgery face and Gia Carangi looking like Cindy Crawford mixed with Sheila Marquez.

Fashion News:

Love this red accented camouflage travel collection created exclusively for the Corner by Trussardi (via FWD). And if you’ve never heard creative director/photographer Milan Vukmirovic‘s sexy accent, there’s also a video at the link.

If you haven’t yet seen the list of winners at the British Fashion Awards, go here now. Phoebe Philo won Designer of the Year and Lara Stone of course, for Model of the Year.


Marilyn Minter shoots the new Jimmy Choo campaign.

Modeling News:

Speaking of Ms. Stone, the Stone clones have arrived, so says Jezebel. We, though, think each girl is uniquely gorgeous… What say you?

Have you kept track of all the pregnant models in the last year? NY Magazine’s got a count for you.

Yves Saint Laurent wants YOU for their new ad campaign. If you’re lucky.….

Miscellaneous:

Into the Gloss chats with top hairstylist/Grace Coddington significant other, Didier Malige.

If you missed it, here’s Nick Knight’s conversation with BoF.

The future of advertising.. and it ain’t pretty for the ad agencies.

Hero Magazine collaborates with JW Anderson for a limited edition exclusive t-shirt with all profits going to charity. It’ll be the first of an ongoing series.

Hair Raising

November 26th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is nothing like a bit of beauty to brighten things up: looking at Daniel Jackson‘s pristine photos from the latest Vogue Nippon, we were instantly struck by the amazing artistry behind the hair and makeup. The hair-raising looks created by Didier Malige, are nothing short of amazing. Beauties, Julia Hafstrom, Sharon Kavjian and Kamila Filipcikova, wear tri-color bouffants and up-dos with flair. Add in Gucci Westman‘s dramatic makeup (check out the amazing drawn on eyebrows) (and Alastair McKimm‘s styling) and you have the making of a spectacular beauty story.
