True at First Light

May 13th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For Vogue Germany’s June issue Alisa Ahmann takes center stage romantically photographed by Giampaolo Sgura. On the cover the towheaded German stuns in Celine with pops of crimson added from dahlia brooches, styled by Christiane Arp. On the inside, the red motif is carried through creating a vivid color story. But Alisa’s sculptural cheekbones command the attention accented by powdery salmon hues and simply crimped hair. See the exclusive preview below.

Since its debut Vamp Magazine has been about powerful women, the kind who command attention whether they’re in the boardroom or on the catwalk.

The editorial content follows suit with arresting new fashion stories, each one bolder than the last – take a first look below.

Women on Top

March 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Who can resist the allure of a magazine dedicated to dynamic, intelligent and take charge women! David Vivirido and Francesco Sourigues, the forces behind Hercules Magazine unveil their vision for women with Vamp Magazine, a tour de force take on fashion dedicated to those who are unafraid to speak their minds and express themselves via the best in power-dressing. The cover tagline “Being the woman you’ve always wanted to be” offers a compelling call to action – it isn’t enough to just wear pretty clothes, a girl has got to take on the world with gusto. The founders offered a mission statement of sorts to Business of Fashion and described the glossy’s ideal reader in no uncertain terms, “Vamp is for women who want to get ahead, stamp their foot and make a statement.”

We love the sound of that and the look of the 6 incredible new covers, which feature an impressive lineup of modeling fixtures. Each cover star is an impressive woman with personality to spare, from industry standard bearers like Carolyn Murphy and Liya Kebede, multi-hyphenate Rosie Huntington Whiteley, campaign queen Karmen Pedaru and in demand it-girls Andreea Diaconu and Emily DiDonato.

Shayk Shack

October 21st, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When a model crosses over from the sexy market to the editorial pages the end result is always a compelling mix of high fashion gravitas and red, hot sensuality. Irina Shayk has always handled both sides of the business admirably and since her Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele styled Vogue debut back in 2012 she’s been on a roll. With her latest work Irina ups the ante;  snagging the first Vogue cover of her career. Irina shines in Giampaolo Sgura‘s classically minded shot for the November issue of Vogue Espana. Naturally that isn’t the only place you’ll find her this month – open up the latest VMan to see the Russian beauty quicken pulses in Sebastian Faena‘s sensual story, or glimpse inside Bazaar to see Irina star Carine Roitfeld’s modern day take on Romeo & Juliet.

First Look: Hercules ❤ New York

September 26th, 2013 |Posted by jonathanshia

The heavyweight Spanish menswear magazine Hercules Universal is no stranger to the long-distance haul, having devoted previous issues to far-flung locales like China and South Africa. The Fall 2013 issue finds itself a bit closer to home, focusing on the vibrant energy of the world’s capital, New York City. Several of the most talented photographers and stylists working today join forces in the eclectic stories, which showcase the beautiful Fall collections against the backdrop of the ever-changing city. Polish photographer Maciek Kobielski‘s stark black-and-white cover story features the Dane Mathias Lauridsen styled by Swede Zara Zachrisson and Darcy Backlar (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists), all of whom, like many in these pages—and countless immigrants before them— now call New York home. David Agbodji takes a star turn with an uptown elegance in Bruno Staub (De Facto)’s gorgeous feature styled by Miguel Arnau. Sean O’Pry brings his timeless cool to the city streets in Txema Yeste‘s contemplative story with styling by Francesco Sourigues.

The rest of the roster is equally strong, with newer faces like Dominik Bauer, Tidiou M’Baye, O’Shea Robertson and Louis Steyaert taking their places alongside seasoned pros like Clement Chabernaud, Marcel Castenmiller, Miles McMillan—and a few veterans like RJ Rogenski and Aiden Shaw—in features lensed by Giampaolo Sgura, Carlotta Manaigo, Ben Weller, Axel Lindahl, and Zachary Hadley. The rich stories offer small peeks into the city’s bustling diversity, proof that even a lifelong New Yorker can always find something new and exciting just around the corner.
