American Blonde

October 14th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

W Magazine American Blonde from models.com on Vimeo.

The myth of the American Blonde is brought to life by Hugh Lippe and William Town for W Magazine with an atmospheric new film. Shot against an industrial backdrop the film tells the story of a mysterious blonde beauty who sweeps into town and seduces every person she crosses – even when they’re only watching her on CCTV. Naturally, the story doesn’t play out in a straightforward fashion – subtle nods to surveillance culture and the gritty underground films of the 70s create a vibe that gives the film its hint of danger. As always Anna delivers, providing just the right mix of sensuality and confidence to keep viewers captivated until the final frame.

Director Hugh Lippe on American Blonde : We (William Town and I) sat down with the task of creating something unique for W’s media section. Throughout writing the treatment, a conversation began regarding the process of ‘image making’ and the dynamic of fashion videos. I believe at one point, after much discussion, we said, “%*$#-it, lets make a ‘rough’ film look cinematic…”. Anna, a German native, is stunningly gorgeous. She the type of model that can work couture along side the most interesting, sharp and stunning androgynous models, yet a guy from any geographic point will take their eyes off the road to ‘check her out’. She embodies a sentiment to me reminiscent of the supermodels in the 80’s, they were ‘hot’, a poster on the wall. Once we put this German beauty through our the ‘process’ she in turn became the ‘American Blonde’.

Black Magic

October 16th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

What happens when a fearless model and a boundary pushing photographer join forces? Take a look inside the latest issue of the journal at Hugh Lippe‘s witchy story starring Crystal Renn. The edgy shoot is steeped in occult imagery – pentagrams, brooms and other dark artifacts, but things never get overly literal. Instead we’re treated to a take no prisoners editorial that pits extreme luxury against a rustic setting. Stylist Natasha Royt works wild looks from Celine, Valentino and Haider Ackermann into the mix upping the fashion quotient. Crystal bares her body and her soul as Lippe captures her uninhibited performance to create an exciting collaboration between photographer and model.
