Polymath

September 22nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

It is hard to think of a model more innately chic than Natasha Poly and when you look at her latest work it’s easy to see why the Russian beauty is fashion’s go-to girl for glamour. On Luigi & Iango slick cover for October’s Vogue Germany Natasha is a vision in smoky eyeshadow and nude lips by Virginia Young (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management). The seductive editorial showcases Natasha at her most alluring, especially when she’s wearing little more than a wide brimmed hat ad a come hither stare.

In the pages of Vogue Paris Natasha heads in a completely different direction via an enchanting story with her daughter Aleksandra. Shot by Mario Testino (Art Partner) and featuring two generations of Poly pretty the cover celebrates Natasha’s new chapter as muse & mother. Though it might be a little too early to pick the Prada opener of S/S 2035 we can already see where the adorable Aleksandra could easily follow in the footsteps of her model mom; she’s already landed a Vogue cover and a space in Testino’s star-studded towel series before even learning how to walk.

First Look : W Korea’s K-Fashion

August 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Phoebe Philo’s ladylike yet casual take on fall fashion is front & center on W Korea’s chic September cover starring Georgia May Jagger. Shot by Maciek Kobielski with fashion director Yoo Kyung Choi and styled by Ethel Park the cover & corresponding editorial offer a stripped down version of chic that juxtaposes ultra-luxury pieces with a gritty backdrop. As always Georgia May is an appealing presence, radiating an easy-going sensuality with her loose waves and pouty lips. Clad in Philo’s Céline knits, oversized coats and shiny platforms Jagger is the ultimate cool girl and completely in line with the look of the moment. September editions are all about cementing the year’s sartorial viewpoint and the thrilling headline “this is K-Fashion” promises that there are even more fashion moments within the issue’s pages.

Banal Plus

July 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The normcore trend has been the subject of much debate – is it chic, is it lazy, is it even a legitimate trend at all? Craig McDean and Edward Enninful take on the look in the pages of W Magazine with an editorial that mixes the best in designer gear with everyday staples like Adidas tube socks and white clogs – the kind of items you’re more likely to find in the closets of athletes than amongst the accessories utilized in a fashion story. With boy short bowl cuts by James Pecis (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management) and minimal makeup by Fulvia Farolfi (ArtList Paris) models Daiane ConteratoGrace MaharyAymeline ValadeManuela FreyKatlin AasAmanda Murphy and Fei Fei Sun look equal parts haute and banal.

June 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Sport is a popular theme this month with several magazines looking to the World Cup and pre-fall’s energetic collections for inspiration. Vogue Russia offers a fashionable take on the theme with Jason Kibbler‘s (Cadence New York) spirited cover story starring Sam Rollinson. With fashion by Olga Dunina and icy makeup by Benjamin Puckey (New York: D + V Management, London: D + V Management ) the story captures the athletic and chic mood aptly, pairing striped jumpers with designer sneakers and metallic pullovers galore.

Painted Precision

June 3rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench goes experimental in an edgy i-D Magazine story by Nick Dorey (New York: D + V Management, London: D + V Management ). Most makeup stories keep things classic, but i-D isn’t the typical publication and the magazine’s commitment to full-force creativity is evident here. Juliana Schurig and Carla Ciffoni serve as the canvas for Ffrench’s abstract creations and both beauties gamely take on the extreme cosmetic creations, from a full face of silver that looks airbrushed on, to swirling stripes of black and orange. Jack Borkett adds in expert styling, working in looks from Topshop and Christopher Kane to add to the editorial’s cool factor.

World Cup

May 30th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Made in Brazil Magazine has always been the go-to resource for the best and brightest Brazilian models, and the magazine expands its horizons with its latest edition. Labeled as the “International Issue,” the new magazine offers up a continent-spanning study of some of the most important faces in the industry today, kicked off by the four cover boys: the Argentine Mariano Ontañon, the Brit Arran Sly, the German Thorben Gartner, and the American Chris Moore. Every continent—save, of course, Antarctica—is represented within, from the Australian Joel Meacock and a heavy South American contingent to Matthew Brookes (D + V Management )’ beautiful feature shot in the desert outside Marrakech.

Several of the most promising new faces, from Harvey James and John Todd to Matt Mcglone and Ronald Epps, take their place alongside some of the industry’s biggest names, from Garrett Neff and David Agbodji to Chad White and Tobias Sorensen, all of them captured in characteristically rich and striking photography by Milan Vukmirovic (De Facto), Cristiano Madureira, Greg Vaughan, Dean Isidro, and more. With this eighth issue, Made in Brazil proves it can widen its scope without losing its singular, coherent vision.

Orange Crush

April 14th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

There is only one color that matters in Jem Mitchell‘s striking new Vogue China story, but what a color it is. Juicy, pop off the page orange features in every look, covering Shu Pei Qin from head to toe and even giving her a fiery new coif for good measure. Jeanine Lobell paints Shu Pei in citrusy shades while Neil Moodie (New York: D + V Management, London: D + V Management ) provides the aforementioned neon tresses. Mitchell’s saturated imagery takes you up close capturing each look in all it’s vivid beauty.
