Past, Present, Future

December 8th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Meisel delves into modern bohemia with a striking December cover for Vogue Italia starring Jamie Bochert and Valerija Kelava. Styled by Marie-Amélie Sauvé, in floppy hats and folksy prints the duo embodies the free spirited days of yesteryear while sporting some of the latest fashions around. Inside the issue they’re joined by Hollie May Saker, Gabriel Marques, Harmony Boucher, Jackie Sanchez, Olivier John Rodgers, Olympia Campbell, Steffy Argelich and Will Lewis for an appealing series of shots that look culled from a late sixties scrapbook. Meisel ditches his sleek studio style in favor of soft, dreamy images mixed in with still life images by artist & filmmaker, Benn Northover.

Jamie & Valerija may have snagged the cover, but the model who steals the show is the adorable August Kruse Templer, who makes his Vogue Italia debut alongside proud mom Christina Kruse.

Pirelli’s Passion

November 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The Pirelli Calendaris a time honored tradition and every year they turn up the heat another notch with the calendar’s blend of haute fashion and sensuality. This year’s cal is a collaboration amongst industry legends with Steven Meisel shooting, Carine Roitfeld styling and Pat McGrath and Guido Palau providing make up and hair. With a team that illustrious you expect only the very best and the final images deliver that level of quality. If the end result seems even more fashion forward than usual, it’s no accident, “I didn’t want to make a conceptual calendar,” says Meisel “or link it to some particular location, but rather to create 12 posters in which women, in all their sensuality, are the absolute protagonists of 12 very different images. Since I wanted to limit the use of clothes and accessories and since I had absolute creative freedom, I found it very exciting to play with the colors, the makeup, and the materials. It was a very rewarding experience.”

Take a first look inside the calendar’s gorgeous shots of Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, Sasha Luss and Anna Ewers below.

Document Based

September 4th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Why have just one great cover when you can have six? Document Journal‘s F/W 2014 covers feature this season’s mega-models including Saskia de Brauw, Daria Werbowy, Stella Tennant, Raquel Zimmermann, Binx Walton, and Edie Campbell. The variety of this season’s covers show how the photographers & teams brought their own unique spirit to the table. Each cover stands alone, but artistry serves as a unifying theme bringing the diverse covers under the same creative umbrella. Contemporary art star Richard Prince shoots Daria Werbowy against an abstract canvas backdrop, while sculptor Isa Genzken reimagines Stella Tennant as a living work of art. Document’s impressive slate of photographers unleashed their creative side as well with Collier Schorr offering a studied portrait of a paint accented Saskia de Brauw. Roe Ethridge transforms it girl Binx Walton into a modern day Eve – complete with creeping serpent, while Richard Bush taps into Edie Campbell‘s reserves of cool with a Vuitton clad shot. Last but not least, hair stylist du jour Guido Palau collaborates with Fabien Baron for a special cover taking the versatile Raquel Zimmermann and capturing in an austere fashion that is both slick and stripped down.

We love each and every new cover of Document and can’t even pick a favorite… can you?

Proenza’s Pulse

July 10th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Proenza Schouler ‘s fall campaign kicks off with a bang, David Sims shoots show opener Julia Bergshoeff in the duo’s kinetic designs for a striking set of images. In the capable hands of Marie Chaix (Art Partner) the collection comes to life the black and white patterns popping against the bright background. The effervescent, Ron Nagle influenced autumn collection explored ideas about action and motion and those themes repeat here. Bleached brows courtesy of Diane Kendal and a sleek coif by Guido Palau complete the vibe to create a look worthy of Jack & Lazaro’s cool girls.

The In Crowd

July 8th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

A gathering of cool kids will always be a fashion moment unto itself and Steven Meisel taps into that idea for the latest issue of Vogue Italia. Instead of an otherworldly setting Meisel enlists Edie Campbell, Lexi Boling, Amanda Murphy, Vanessa Moody, Julia NobisMeghan CollisonRJ King, Yuri Pleskun, David Axell, Geron McKinley, Dorian Reeves, David Alexander Flinn, Cameron Keesling and Tobias Hayduk for a pared down shoot that recreates the look and feel of a happening cafe setting. Mariana Santana and Anna Ewers join the fun in the accompanying editorial where models blow smoke rings as they sport heavy black liner and subtly 60s style coifs for a look that nods to the retro without being too referential. As usual Mary Howard‘s production design is flawless and the New Wave vibes are hammered home by Pat McGrath‘s makeup and Guido Palau‘s hair.

The Moment’s Muse

May 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Meisel.
Lexi Boling.
Karl Templer.
Vogue Italia.

The influential Italian glossy crowns Lexi “the look of the moment” on its May cover and the stunning Chicagoan proves she’s got what it takes with an ultra-chic fashion story. Styled in transparent pieces with a touch of mod, Boling looks every inch the superstar – the laid back look provided by Pat McGrath and Guido Palau adds the final polish but the attitude is 100% Lexi. With her aloof gaze and hair parted just so as to cover one eye, Lexi embodies fashion’s enduring obsession with nonchalant it-girls.
