Dressed in luxurious, glittering gowns, Elisabeth is a haunting vision in metallic hues and ornate jewels styled by Patti Wilson. Featuring looks from Lanvin, Proenza SchoulerDolce & Gabbana and more, Summerton’s opulent dream-state has us hypnotized.

Luigi & Daniele + Iango shoot Karmen Pedaru, Hilary Rhoda, and several more in a celebration of beauty and glamour that’s bound to amaze. Giovanna Battaglia brings her signature eye for color in styling this megawatt shoot, exemplifying that “Style Has Many Faces.” Some of those faces include Liu Wen inPrada, Nadja Bender in Tom Ford, and Elisabeth Erm in Givenchy. Overwhelming abundance seems to be in full bloom this spring, and this glamorous series—rounded out by Julia Stegner, Jeneil Williams, Lily Donaldson, Natasa Vojnovic and Catherine McNeil—might be the best one yet.

GUCCI

Gucci’s boudoir ready spring collection gets a suitably sensual campaign by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner).

CHLOE

It’s been a few seasons since Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helmed the Chloe campaign, but the duo doesn’t miss a beat. With Lou Doillon and Julia Stegner front and center in summery images filled with floaty minidresses and espadrilles, Inez and Vinoodh perfectly capture the laid back look & feel that defines Chloe.

Liza with a Z

July 15th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion editorials are notorious for seeking inspiration in the form of cultural icons. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but some celebrity homages have been done to death – how many times have you seen a story centered around Grace Jones, Marilyn Monroe or Brigitte Bardot? It is always nice when a magazine chooses a theme that is slightly less overdone, so it’s a treat to open up Numero and find a colorful tribute to Liza Minnelli circa Cabaret. Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello transform Elisabeth Erm into a modern day Sally Bowles complete with sequins and feather boas selected by Samuel Francois, a touch of blue eyeshadow courtesy of Rie Omoto (See Management) and that signature black bob coifed by Romina Manenti (See Management). Elisabeth may lack Liza’s musical skills and that famous nose, but she pulls off the look admirably in Sanchez & Mongiello’s vivid images.

CHLOE
Designer: Clare Waight Keller
Models: Elisabeth Erm, Marique Schimmel & Caroline Brasch Nielsen

Chloe strikes a nonchalantly elegant mood with a collection that focuses on the beauty of a laid back look. Relaxed tailoring and a beachy color palette create a feel that is undone, yet sophisticated – even the evening gowns have a casualness that makes them enticing. Guipures and embroidered details add a sense of playfulness, while standout accessories reinforce the house’s heritage as originator of the it-bag – keep an eye on the gold bar embellished Clare satchel.
