Leather Lover

January 13th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Hanne Gaby Odiele adds a touch of avant-garde to any editorial and in the latest Vogue China she lends her edge to Mark Segal‘s portraits of sleek leather looks. Dressed in luxuriant pieces from Celine, Hermes and YSL, Hanne looks as cool as ever and Elissa Santisis refined styling makes the story look classy rather than campy.

Steven Meisel has a sense of humor and every so often it emerges on the pages of Vogue Italia : the December issue is a tongue in cheek send up of Twitter, social media and the perils of online exposure. Beginning with a hilarious tweet from the master himself, the editorial is filled with fun little moments : from Abbey Lee Kershaw climbing into her fridge to Kristen McMenamy jumping on a trampoline with her dog, the whole story is priceless.

Sweet Charity

October 27th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Nothing brings a great cause to light like an imaginative ad that captures the heart of an issue with intelligence and wit. Of course, a few of the world’s most beautiful models stripping down to their skivvies certainly doesn’t hurt either. Cameron Russell, Rianne Ten Haken, Rachel Alexander, Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, Crystal Renn, Shannan Click, Olya Ivanisevic, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Alla Kostromichova, Nicole Trunfio and Heidi Mount join forces to bring awareness to 350.org and the International Day of Climate Awareness via a humorous spot that has the girls peeling off layers due to the heat caused by the rising carbon count. The ad conceived by Cameron herself, is a smart and sexy way to get attention for a great cause. MDC spoke to the always eloquent Cameron for a little insight into why this cause is so important and how the project itself got off the ground.

MDC: There are so many great people involved in this video – how did you organize such a project?

Cameron: All the girls are my friends and loved shooting the video for a good cause, so that part was relatively easy to pull together.

The whole project happened from start to finish in a little under two weeks and 300 phone calls–who knew production was so complicated!

MDC: On a personal level what made you want to get involved with this cause?

Cameron: I think Climate Change is the most important issue of our time. In the history of the world all 5 mass extinctions have been accompanied by massive climate change, so we are facing an incredible serious threat.  In fact we are technically in the 6th mass extinction right now, and it is the first mass extinction being attributed to human kind. My all time hero Tibor Kalman showed the world the ability of mass media to convey serious images and create real discussion (think 90′s Benneton ad’s of people with AIDS). Climate Change which is often seen as very political or scientific needs to be made a people’s issue. My hope is that this ad helps re-brand environmentalism.

Watch the video in HD on the Studio 4a Youtube channel.

Purple Play

August 27th, 2009 |Posted by models.com

You saw that infamous video of Paola Kudacki‘s beauty story for Purple #12. Now here is a suite of the actual images of the shoot, straight from De Facto‘s, Paola’s rep. We love that it is as much a jewelry extravaganza as it is a beauty moment.

Pagan Poetry

August 20th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is nothing like a pleasant surprise to get the season started right. The September issue of V comes with a staggering special supplement that focuses on the cerebral beauties at Women & Supreme Management management. The lengthy portfolio by  Paul Rowland re-imagines 19 of the industry’s most captivating faces as pagans – complete with flowers, insects, slabs of serrated flesh and of course, blood. The end result is raw, hypnotic and about a thousand times more interesting than most of the covers we’ve seen this September. Seeing Alana Zimmer, Alla Kostromichova, Behati Prinsloo, Christina Kruse, Daiane Conterato, Darya Kurovska, Georgina Stojiljkovic, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Hannelore Knuts, Iris Strubegger, Isabeli Fontana, Meghan Collison, Mina Cvetkovic, Natasa Vojnovic, Ranya Mordanova, Rose Cordero, Suvi Koponen, Valentina Zeliaeva and Yulia Kharlapanova in this new light highlights not only the versatility of the girls but also the sheer reserves of talent that can be found at these two powerhouse agencies.

Camp Classic

July 31st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Sometimes a little laugh is all you need. Hanne Gaby Odiele turns on the charm for A Magazine‘s Proenza Schouler special. Hanne’s boundless energy and the unapologetically kitschy retro styling courtesy of Vanessa Reid make the story high on fun and Max Farago‘s campy pictures instantly bring to mind the swinging sixties and their campier moments.
