Lanvin Luxe

July 9th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion has the power to transform you, literally. Steven Meisel puts the old adage to the test and takes Edie Campbell on a wild trip through the latest Lanvin collection in the new fall advertising campaign. Portraying six very different personas in the sleek shots, Edie showcases the versatility of Alber Elbaz‘s designs and her innate posing skills – it’s not easy to look chic while holding a duck and wearing a two-tone fur. Her transformations are aided by impressive makeup by Pat McGrath and Guido Palau‘s hair magic, all of which combines to show a fresh side of Ms. Campbell.

Prada Persuasion

June 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Prada‘s elegant fall collection comes to life with a thrilling new campaign by Steven Meisel. In previous seasons the brand has gone for high concept ads and elaborate set ups, but for fall the focus is all on the clothes and the cast. The mix of striking new faces alongside seasoned fashion veterans highlights the universal appeal of Miuccia Prada’s designs and reinforces the idea that a Prada ensemble is the right choice for women of all ages.

A Healthy Obsession

June 4th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Whenever Steven Meisel and Gisele Bundchen join forces for Vogue Italia you know you’re in for a treat. The June issue delves into beauty with a satirical look at the pleasures of primping – from your basic treatments and manicures, to controversial extremes like the much discussed ‘vampire’ facial. Meisel shoots in his signature high gloss style, while Lori Goldstein mixes in pieces from Louis VuittonFendi alongside a few larger-than-life Chanel Joaillerie sparklers. Given the subject matter the dream team of Pat McGrathGuido Palau and Jin Soon Choi are naturally a big part of the action – their elegant touch keeps Gisele looking flawless, even in the middle of chemical peels and deep conditioning masks.

Editorial Inspiration : Jerry Hall

December 4th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Open up the new Vogue Italia and you’ll see the stunning Vanessa Axente looking amazing in Steven Meisel‘s ultra-chic imagery, but take a closer look and you may get a case of deja vu. Don’t those long blonde waves look familiar, isn’t the outsized eroticism and in your face glamour reminiscent of a time, a place? If you started to hear the Rolling Stones playing the background and got a distinctly 70s feel from the entire endeavor, you’re on the right track. Meisel looks back to the iconic allure of Jerry Hall and the saturated, decadent imagery of the disco era. You’ll see hints of Helmut Newton, Willie Christie, Antonio Lopez and more in Meisel’s images, while Karl Templer transforms Resort pieces into over the top looks fit for Studio 54. With a swipe of Pat McGrath applied red lipstick and a Guido Palau coiffed waves, Vanessa transforms into a latter day Jerry, while Marlon Teixeira provides the manpower.

McQueen’s Majesty

March 6th, 2012 |Posted by models.com

On the eve of the McQueen show, there isn’t a single designer more buzzed about than Sarah Burton. The romantic yet avant garde look she has crafted for the house have kept the brand going and more than lived up to the legacy of the late Lee Alexander McQueen himself. Interview goes in depth with the typically press shy Ms. Burton via a dialogue with another famous Sarah, actress Sarah Jessica Parker. The must read article is accompanied by some truly gorgeous images shot by Fabien Baron and David Burton, styled by Karl Templer, that capture the essence of all McQueen is about.

The Surreal Life

February 7th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

When Steven Meisel selects a model from thousands of girls working today, it means something. It takes a special girl to captivate the industry’s premier photographer and Laura Kampman has done just that. Take a look at her Vogue Italia cover story to see just what Miss Kampman brings to the table: her off-kilter appeal is showcased in a series of surrealist shots that owe as much to Dali as they do to Meisel. Looking at home in black veils and blue lips, Laura enlivens some of fashion’s most original pieces. Karl TemplerPat McGrath and Guido Palau‘s talents combine to create a beautiful showcase for the season’s infatuation with the otherworldly and the special girl who captures the mood of the moment.

Surrealist

January 30th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Meisel.
Laura Kampman.
Karl Templer.

An intriguing take on elegance from Vogue Italia and perhaps a knowing commentary on the line between fantasy and reality, constantly being pushed in fashion imagery. Laura looks world’s different from her rocker-chic turn in the Balenciaga campaign, makeup by Pat McGrath and hair by Guido Palau, have a way of transforming a girl.
