Behati in Paradise

March 26th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

Ah, to be Behati Prinsloo. During a recent spot on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the 24-year-old Namibian beauty joked about the misfortune of supermodels like herself who must travel to exotic and glamourous locations, like a little placed called St. Barths. Fulfilling the demands of her career, naturally, Behati jets to the beaches of Tulum in her latest editorial for Vogue Espana. Shot by Greg Kadel, the Victoria’s Secret Angel romps about in a more natural state, relaxing in Havana Laffitte’s summer-ready looks and flashing more than a few joyful grins.

Hot N’ Steamy

July 22nd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

As the heatwave sweeps throughout the city Greg Kadel perfectly encapsulates the scorching hot days of summer with a sensual story in the latest Vogue Espana. Most people would wilt beneath the heat and humidity, but Karmen Pedaru maintains her aloofly sexy persona even when clad in F/W’s decorative furs fresh off the runway. The eclectic mix of luxury fashions and barely there bikinis selected by Havana Laffitte adds a touch of carnality to even the most demure catwalk pieces. Celine’s plaid laundry bag inspired prints and Burberry’s glossy boleros take on a whole new aura thanks to Laffitte’s styling.

The modeling enigma goes west in Kadel’s cinematic editorial. Wearing the season’s finery with unmatched flair, Malgosia sports a array of key looks – none of which fall into cowboy cliche. The Havana Laffitte selected pieces, range from space age Alexander McQueen, to austere Celine, but each look comes alive in the story and accompanying video – watch on Vogue.es

Multitasking

March 26th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Mariacarla Boscono does double duty in the latest issue of i-D, with two editorials that show off her incredible versatility. First, Willy Vanderperre casts Mariacarla as a sensual Snow White in his moody, atmospheric images, then Paola Kudacki takes her tribal with an energetic editorial. No matter the scenario, Mariacarla manages to shine – the way she transforms in these stories is exceptional. Credit of course has to be given to the stylists – the fit for a fairytale florals chosen by Olivier Rizzo and the out of this world pieces selected by Havana Laffitte, make these stories pop.
