Change of Guard

June 10th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

As soon as Vanity Fair Italy previewed cover images from Vogue Italia’s “China” issue the internet was abuzz over the non-Meisel round-up of photographers– confirming the whispers that the storied lensman would longer shoot every cover. For models, having a VI cover by Steven Meisel served as a badge of honor and a telltale of imminent visibility.  Steven’s famous partiality for beautiful women and inimitable eye has forecasted and launched numerous careers. So needless to say, his absences after holding the fort since 1988 is big news.

For the the “China” issue, Vogue Italia enlisted Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and Steven Klein to help carry the weight of Meisel’s absence, shooting a cast of established Chinese beauties Fei Fei Sun, Xiao Wen JuJing Wen and newer faces like Yuan Bo Chao, Fernanda Ly and Gia Tang. Each cover bears the visual thumbprint from this league of extraordinary photographers: McDean’s romantic evocations; Sorrenti’s audacious arrangements; Mert and Marcus’ high-styled narratives and Klein’s surreal interpretations. Whether or not it’s enough to fill the void, the praise-worthy selection of models by these modern masters in celebration of China certainly stands on its own.

Miranda Goes Editorial

VS Angel Miranda Kerr certainly has model watchers doing a re-think after her note perfect turn on the Balenciaga SS10 catwalk. Here’s a quick byte from Miss Kerr on the experience.

How did you come on the radar for the Balenciaga SS10 Miranda?
It was a total unexpected surprise when I  was requested to meet with Nicolas and Marie Amelie for the runway casting. I wasn’t planning on doing any shows and had confirmed booking with Victoria’s Secret everyday. They were so kind to move things around so as I could make it to Paris for the fitting and the show.

Are there more shows like this in your near future? Should we expect some blue chip editorial Miranda moments?
I have recently shot V magazine with Willy Vanderperre, among other editorial fashion stories. As for shows, Balenciaga is the only show I will do during SS2010 collections.

How did you find the backstage atmosphere at Balenciaga as compared the world of VS?

Ah…they are entirely different! The one similarity is the fashion mayhem and high energy!! I am blessed to be invited to be a part of both worlds.

What are planning to see/do/buy while in Paris?

I love absorbing all things unique to Paris. It truly is one of my favorite cities in the world. Unfortunately, I was only there for 2 days but I did get to go to a few of my favorite cafes and bars. Among them, Cafe Ruc and Bar Hemingway.  Of course, I managed to  squeeze in a little shopping at Isabel Marant, Dior and Balenciaga, of course!

What’s the one piece you must have from the show?
I absolutely love the jacket from my look in the show. There is nothing like it. It is a definite must have for my closet!

The Exclusives (updated)

February 19th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

The industry always excitedly waits for the Calvin show as it never fails to debut some of the season’s most coveted faces.

The consistently powerful casting by Maida and Rami ushered in the arrival of 16 year old Louise from Belgium, winner of the Elite Model Look Europe 2008. Addison Gill, the Canadian winner of the V/Supreme model contest emerged in the stellar lineup and everyone finally undestood why she was curiously MIA this past week. Perhaps the most exciting exclusive was the 17 year old American, Lyndsey from Click Models, scoring the first Calvin show exclusive for a young woman of color. Lyndsey was found by Click on MDC’s scouting feature! 17 year old Canadian Bojana from IMG was a dark haired beauty, a welcome change from the blondes galore.

Some other tidbits from the Camilla Nickerson styled show.. Jac (MDC’s top F/W 09 newcomer) opened and closed Calvin; we can say Jac is officially cleaning up this fashion week. Other new faces appearing for their first time in Calvin were Hannah (another MDC top newcomer) and the new faces at Women Direct, Alla and Dorothea.
