First Look: Lurve

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Lurve Magazine‘s next era kicks off with a stellar issue with a fresh perspective on fashion. Editor in chief Lyna V. Ahanda, new fashion director Moreno Galatà and fashion editor Alessandra Conti create an issue focused on a modern interpretation of 90s style fashion photography. Bringing all the raw energy and individualism that defined the 90s aesthetic back into the mix is an inspired move and one that makes each editorial feel vital.

The issue’s six covers take the theme head on with a diverse lineup of models & photogs; reportage photographer Olivia Arthur shoots model Adwoa Aboah in Louis Vuitton; while Lily McMenamy sports Céline in a stylized shot by Sonia Sieff. Queen of cool Caroline de Maigret shows another side in an elegant image by Alessio BolzoniRobbie McKinnon sports a brush and stacks of vinyl in his cheeky cover by Edmund Aves. The always chic Elisa Sednaoui is serene in Prada in her cover by Laurence Ellis (Visual Artist UK ) and Hanne Gaby Odiele delights in a striking image by Dario Catellani (Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)

Inside the content is every bit as compelling as the covers, with an array of contributors providing exciting new edits that adhere to that avant garde 90s spirit. Each story is special in its own way, but famed street photographer Nick Turpin providing his first fashion work, shooting Neelam Johal in a museum setting is a bonafide moment.

Combine the model star power of Storm Model Management, the cutting-edge art direction of Plus Agency  and what do you get? A luxurious and inventive fashion glossy, designed with “print addicts” in mind. Centrefold Magazine  has always delivered an impressive array of editorial delights, but this issue takes things one step further with a jam packed assortment of epic beauties and high profile photographers. The resplendent Kate Moss graces the cover and oozes aloof sex appeal like in Venetia Scott‘s editorial, while Cindy Crawford looks better than ever in classic black and white images. The fun doesn’t stop there of course, everyone from Andrej Pejic, Liberty Ross to Lily ColeJourdan DunnEva Herzigova and Cara Delevingne has a chance to shine.

mdc ♥s: scent refresher

June 22nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle


Get in the mood for summer with this classic Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot of Daria Werbowy for Vogue Paris

The weather may be unpredictable, but there is no denying that summer is upon us. From a beauty standpoint that means experiencing the season’s newest and best fragrances in all their heady glory. Take a look at this line up of refreshing, effervescent and downright intoxicating scents perfect for the summer.

Serge Lutens L’Eau Froide – Lutens scents always go for the esoteric, so it comes as no surprise that L’Eau Froide was inspired by “fresh air in the rusty water pipes.” Unusual, but the end result is a bracing blast of unisex verbena and mint that provides a much needed dose of cool.

INEKE Balmy Days & Sundays – The hotter it gets the more things start to feel out of control, but Ineke’s soothing green Balmy Days & Sundays creates an instant aura of tranquility. The scent is soothing, fresh and just crisp enough keep things exciting. The winning combination of Freesia, Grass, Honeysuckle and Mimosa is perfect for when the temperature creeps up past 90. Don’t let the name fool you, Sunday may be a day for relaxation but Ineke’s lightweight chypre doesn’t lack for sophistication.

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell – Delicate, enveloping and ever so slightly sweet, Jo Malone’s unique combo of persimmon, lily of the valley and eglantine is simply delightful. Floral lovers rejoice, summer doesn’t have to mean giving up the flowers you love so much – put the Fracas back on the shelf and try a lighter variation. The almost aquatic florals in Wild Bluebell are subtle and elegant.

L’Artisan Batucada – One word – Brazil. Batucada is named after a style of samba and has notes that call to mind a Caipirinha – lime, coconut, sugar and a bit of Tiaré flower for good measure, coming together to form a the perfect fizzy cocktail and ultimate exhilarating burst.

Roberto Cavalli – The Cavalli name promises sex appeal, trendiness and a certain rebellious spirit that infuses the house’s daring designs and the namesake scent more than lives up to this reputation. Fronted by Elisa Sednaoui, the amber and pink pepper focused blend is decadent and appealing without being overwhelming. A spritz of this on a steaming summer evening is guaranteed to make you feel your sexiest.

Rad Vision

March 27th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Rad Hourani brings his signature style to the pages of Dress to Kill with a stark black and white story featuring an eclectic mix of fashion favorites. From power stylists Patti Wilson & Kate Lanphear, to models Herieth Paul & Elisa Sednaoui and Hollywood star Jared Leto, everyone gets the Hourani treatment. The darkly androgynous look is always alluring, but ultra-feminine faces like Herieth, Elisa and the stunning Zoe Duchnesne provide that added touch of sex appeal.

Campaigning

January 12th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Campaigns. We can’t get enough of the Spring ads. Unlike previous seasons where an overarching theme repeated through several campaigns, S/S 2011 is all about individuality; whether that means smart city chic ala DKNY’s clean ads featuring Heidi Mount and Kori Richardson, or all out fantasy as in the butterfly filled, Lindsey Wixson ads for Alexander McQueen. Some campaigns keep true to the spirit of the collection – Louis Vuitton’s chinoiserie motif repeats in the Steven Meisel helmed campaign, while others go in bold new directions. Armani’s refined collection is given a styling update in the ads by Nick Knight, the addition of a turban on Elisa Sednaoui gives the look more drama.

Even the simplest campaigns seem to have different moods this season; both Valentino and Calvin Klein go for black and white purity, but Valentino’s feminine David Sims shots of Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Julia Saner and Freja Beha Erichsen, are the exact opposite of CK’s austere Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott images of Lara Stone.

Hollywood Remake

September 1st, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

We love a good film reference and the latest Vogue Italia delivers with an editorial inspired by the 1962 Bette Davis and Joan Crawford thriller, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Miles Aldridge draws inspiration from the black and white classic, but shoots in his signature saturated colors. Playing both the deranged Baby Jane and her bedridden sister, Elisa Sednaoui gets the chance to put her dramatic skills to good use and pulls off both parts admirably in a story that is almost as fun as the melodramatic movie it pays tribute to.

Never seen the original? Take a peak at this video for a taste of the madness!
