Sølve Sundsbø.
Joan Smalls.
George Cortina.
A singularly beautiful story where styling and nature merge seamlessly. Look at the way the Haider Ackermann suit coordinates exactly with the lush vegetation, or how the texture of Joan’s shimmering Roberto Cavalli is almost identical to that of the bark on the tree she’s against. Flawless little details like this are what make Sundsbø’s work so memorable and this Vogue Japan story so charming.

George Cortina.

A psychedelic and sensual tribute to richly patterned clothes and highly pigmented lipcolor that jumps off the pages of Vogue Japan. Another simply well done story from Sølve featuring some truly gorgeous makeup by Polly Osmond.

Dots and Loops

July 29th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Making polka dots look classy is no small feat. The graphic circles are most often associated with retro kitsch rather than modern elegance, but George Cortina manages to create a series of beautiful looks on Saskia de Brauw in Mikael Jansson‘s story for Vogue Japan. Using pieces from Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs and McQueen, Cortina crafts ensembles that work perfectly with Saskia’s androgynous and refined persona.

The seemingly unstoppable Daphne Groeneveld strikes again: the Dutch beauty’s striking Vogue Japan cover by Mario Sorrenti has her sporting a furry look from Miu Miu, a center part by crafted by Recine and a pair of seriously bleached brows. George Cortina‘s styling and subtle makeup by Aaron de Mey keep the picture sweet, but Daphne’s trademark glare prevents things from getting sugary.

Sometimes an editorial is just so over the top you have to appreciate it; Mario Sorrenti and George Cortina pull out all the stops for Vogue Nippon and a beachside editorial starring Edita Vilkeviciute. The luxury is so in your face that it borders on gawdy. Big hair? Check. Gold lame? Check. Leopard prints? Double check.
