Charlotte’s Web

November 14th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Capturing the essence of Charlotte Rampling is not an easy task. The cinema legend’s allure is all about subtlety: she’s sexy but never sleazy, aloof but never cold. Helmut Newton encapsulated all these attributes perfectly in his famous photos 70s of the iconic beauty and now Giampaolo Sgura pays tribute to those images in Antidote Magazine. The baby-faced Anna de Rijk might not be the first name you think of when it comes to seduction, but with her cascading dark hair and piercing blue eyes she pulls off the Rampling look nicely. Added bonus, Géraldine Saglio‘s styling focuses on silk stockings and sky high heels, keeping with Antidote’s shoe fetish theme.

mdc ♥s : over the top extras

October 27th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle



Aymeline Valade works a flamboyant look in an image by Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Japan November 2011, styled by Anna Dello Russo

Minimalism is nice, but every so often you want to kick things into high gear and really go over the top. Take a look at trendsetting editors on the street style blogs and you’ll see how much fashion loves all out exhibitionists. Whether you’re a budding Anna Dello Russo, or just in search of a little extra sparkle, we’ve got a few extras you’ll love.

Alexander Wang Metallic Devere – Already a favorite of Garance Dore and seen on the shoulders of several Wang girls this season, the Devere is an appealingly Art Deco take on the classic satchel. In a notice me color like silver, it is sure to garner a few stares.

Miu Miu Glitter and Suede shoes – When it comes to girly glitter Miu Miu has the market cornered. This season Miuccia’s favorite color appears to be shiny and the glitter and suede open toe bootie is the best variation on the trend. We’ve already seen it cropping up in editorial after editorial, not to mention on the feet of stylish accessories experts like Teen Vogue‘s Shiona Turini.

Paco Rabanne Lady Million – Naturally when you’re going for the bold, you should smell like a million bucks. Who can resist a blend of orange blossom, amber and gardenia with a hint of patchouli? Or the inventive gold nugget packaging that we’re pretty sure ADR would turn into a makeshift clutch. Lady Million is playful, yet seductive – much like campaign star Dree Hemingway.

Beauty is Life Queen Eyelashes -  Glitter. Covered. False. Lashes. Completely impractical and utterly fabulous, perfect for Halloween, an evening at your local drag bar or something wild to wear to the Gaga concert.

Tom Binns Pastelle Necklace – More is more and Binns’ candy colored gems are the cream of the crop.

MAC Wild Color Pigments – Were in love with the campaign imagery starring Cindy Sherman and the vibrant colors are sure to unleash your inner artist. Wet pigments and use them as eyeliner, mix them with Vaseline to create a lip color, add a little to your favorite blush or powder for sparkle – the only rule is there are no rules.

Judith Leiber Cupcake keychain – Because everyone needs a rhinestone covered cupcake in their life.

Over the Top!

January 26th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Giampaolo Sgura and Anna Dello Russo join forces for not one, but two maximalist stories for Vogue Nippon. With extravagant styling that echoes Anna’s more is more philosophy and palate of intense colors provided by Segura, both stories are playful tributes to fashion’s eccentrics; Karmen Pedaru looks right at home in those wild hats from Phillip Treacy and Benoit Missolin.

Iron Man

April 23rd, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Though everyone may be focused on the prevalence of “boobs” in fashion, we’re noticing that the strong and sexy man is getting their moment back in the spotlight. V Man‘s new story with Axel Brorson perfectly epitomizes the male form at its most athletic and sleek.

In this exclusive quote for V Man from Italo Zuccheli (the Men’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein); he announces that “Axel has a powerful, Scandinavian magnetism. He is like a young Dolph Lundgren. He perfectly fits the spirit of my fall collection, which is about masculinity and toughness to the extreme.” Calvin Klein is of course the brand with David Agbodji lending his flawless figure to the campaign this season.

Adding to the visual heat is Andres Velencoso Segura, who recently appeared on the new Vanity Fair Spain cover baring almost all. This, coupled with his new underwear campaign for Ermenegeldo Zegna shows that Mr. Segura can hang with the best of the new sexy, male models.
