Amanda Murphy stars in Benjamin Alexander Huseby‘s editorial in the latest issue, sporting elegant pieces from Dior, Atelier Versace and Valentino in soulful black and white images. Jodie Barnes provides the styling wizardry, mixing in combat boots and long gloves for an added touch of chic.

A Simple Touch

August 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Eva Herzigova never fails to bring a special quality to all her images and in Yelena Yemchuk‘s dreamy story for Vogue Italia, the supermodel is at her mesmerizing best. Posing in dainty pieces from Dior accented with Charlotte Olympia clutches and retro shades Eva is the ultimate vintage blonde. Cathy Kasterine‘s artful styling brings a 60s sensibility Yemchuk’s imagery, but the industrial backdrop of powerlines provides unexpected contrast to the ladylike fashions.

See the full story on 2B Management’s official Tumblr or in the fashion database.

Dior’s Darlings

July 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Willy Vanderperre (Art Partner) and Raf Simons join forces once again for Dior‘s fall campaign creating an atmosphere of simple pleasures and girlish delights. Led by Julia Nobis and Fei Fei Sun the ads focus on a group of glamorous femmes in a classic Parisian flat, enjoying conversation, a glass of wine and of course designs from Simons’ ladylike collection. Helena Severin and Kasia Jujeczka join the fun sporting bar bags and the ubiquitous lace-up pieces that made the show so memorable. In the accompanying film the ads come to life, a techno beat pumping as the girls laugh, pose and move around the stylishly appointed apartment.

Serene Escape

June 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

It may be winter down under, but Will Davidson creates a tropical fantasy for the new issue of Vogue Australia. Amanda Wellsh plays the part of elegant castaway in a selection of looks chosen by Christine Centenera. Heading off he beaten path in Dior and Chloe might not be practical in real life, but the cinematic scope of Davidson’s imagery makes the concept seem ideal. Even when grasping a walking stick, or wading through the ocean waves on the back of a horse Amanda never loses her glamorous edge.

Psychedelic Versailles

June 12th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

For their latest fragrance commercial, Dior continues its collaboration with some of the hottest names in the film industry. Following Sofia Coppola and Natalie Portman’s girlish videos for the Miss Dior fragrance, the storied French fashion house tapped indie visionary Harmony Korine, of Kids (1995) and Spring Breakers (2013) fame, to shoot campaign star Sasha Luss in a hypnotic promo for the brand styled by Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele. The clip, at just over a minute, combines found-footage aesthetics, digital animations, and a sampling from South African rap duo Die Antwoord to conjure a psychedelic scene. Sasha, barefoot in Raf Simons’ Spring ‘14 couture collection, revels like Alice in Wonderland lost at Versailles, striking a winning balance for the brand’s fresh yet classic look.
