Russh Hour

February 1st, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Russh never fails to create a dreamy, feminine and oh so inviting vision of fashion and their latest issue is no exception to the rule. With a heavenly shot of Mirte Maas by Hugh Lippe adorning the cover and a series of ethereal editorials inside this is another of the month’s magazine must haves. Issue #44 focuses on “everlasting love” and the sentimental theme carries through all the stories. Whether it is Elle Muliarchyk capturing Elsa Sylvan through rose colored lenses or Imogen Morris-Clarke looking delicate in Stephen Ward‘s beauty story, each image is filled with a sweetness that is downright charming.

Another reason to love Natalia Vodianova. Behind that angel face is the heart of a warrior, determined to do as much as she can to help the children of the world through the power of her beauty. Here’s her new project, Bugaboo Red which helps pregnant women with HIV. “These days, if you don’t take a socially responsible position, you’re out of the club,” says Natalia. We couldn’t agree more!

Congratulations Lara Stone and David Walliams! We are so happy for Lara who got married this weekend in a gorgeous dress by Riccardo Tisci. Check out some pics of friends on British Vogue who include Tom Ford and Jefferson Hack.

In case you haven’t heard, Liya Kebede won a big award at Cannes for her role in Desert Flower.

Tyson Beckford interviewed by Forbes: looking older but still beautiful.

WWD catches up with Eileen Ford, who most certainly has quite a unique perspective on the modeling industry, having pretty much invented it.

Michelle Lee, casting director extraordinaire talks to WWD about the casting process and her favorite new faces of the season.

On a sombre note, Jezebel looks at the terribly sad trend of model suicides, in the wake of Noemie Lenoir‘s suicide attempt. Look for our upcoming special interview with a top model about this topic.

Take a look at Gisele when she started out. House of Models has 2 pics side by side of Gisele 15 years ago and Gisele now. Still drop dead gorgeous!

Remember the beautiful Gail Elliott from the 90s? Frockwriter reviews her Little Joe line which appeared for the first time at the Sydney shows.

The uniquely stunning Eve Salvail is interviewed by Ponyryder.

Check out these adorable new faces videos from Folio in Canada. Shows that simple is sometimes so much better.

Don’t all you models wish you had a fan like this?

“The perfect example of having a lot of money to spend but not knowing what to do with it.” OUCH!

Model Hildie G is one of Paul Rowland’s new fabulous faces for Ford. She may be the antithesis of what Eileen Ford would have liked.

Speaking of Ford, how cute is the new V Man/Ford Model contest winner, Michael Wozniak in this video by Ford?

For those who missed it the first time, here is Imogen Morris-Clarke‘s blog post about what all her model friends wanted to be when they grew up.

Ali Stephens talks about a cause near and dear to her heart, the oceans.

Bruce Weber, Nan Bush, Kelly Klein, Jennifer Starr along with the iconic Tyson Beckford and the beautiful Sports Illustrated Cover star, Brooklyn Decker will be together on April 28th in support of The Last Chance Animal Rescue Fund and the Amaryllis Equine Rescue. Come to the fundraiser/silent auction, which brings together some of the biggest names in fashion and help our furry friends. If you can’t attend, click here to donate.

——————————————————————————-

Modeling info:

First Lara Stone for Calvin Klein, now Alessandra Ambrosio for Moschino by Ines & Vinoodh. Sexy is most assuredly back for fall.

We’re also excited that Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa has done away with using size zero models. It’s about time fashion at its highest level pushed for healthier looks and practices.

Oh too cute: Imogen Morris-Clarke has a new blog with a pic of herself as a child.

Here’s Agyness Deynin the trailer of her new film with Linus Roache. She looks damn gorgeous.

Eva Herzigova, mommy and supermodel is interviewed by Elle Magazine.

Gorgeous Brazilian male model, Diogo, what else is new?

Vogue likes new face Barbara Palvin, we do too!

Kate Moss + Mario Testino = new Taschen book on our must have list.

Ryan Kennedy is back with his second interview for this fashion fan.

If you’re from the US, go to Factor Women’s website to find out about their modelsearch. It goes through May.

Miscellaneous:

Here’s 2 items I’m obsessing over, these Vivienne Westwood for Lee jeans, and this leather jacket. I bet Freja Beha would like the jacket :)

V Man’s new issue is out and it’s chockfull of fantastic new shoots including that infamous Shrek shoot that Dreamworks is regretting. We love it!

Congrats Danny (of Igor & Andre) for making it to Teen Vogue! May all your other fashion dreams come true.

Many attended Anna Wintour’s tribute to Irving Penn at Pratt Institute but we especially love Fashionista’s report that shows even Ms Nuclear Wintour can be touched by the legend’s greatness.

Asian Americans in the fashion industry! Some of our favorite people will be here including Phillip Lim and iconic model Jenny Shimizu.

Royal Flush

March 10th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Tim Walker‘s portraits are always fantastical, but he has really pulled out all the stops for the latest Vogue Italia. Walker’s haunting ‘Lady Grey’ editorial stars Stella Tennant and Imogen Morris-Clarke as couture clad royalty, but the real highlight is Jacob K‘s impeccable styling: his mix of one of  kind pieces looks completely authentic and goes perfectly with Walker’s dreamy style.

The Dark Night

September 8th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is a darkness than underlies the drama of Paolo Roversi‘s latest story for Vogue Italia. Ymre Stiekema, Anna de Rijk, Heidi Mount, Toni Garrn, Rose Cordero, Viktoriya Sosonkina, Jourdan Dunn, Darya Kurovska, Imogen Morris-Clarke, Sigrid Agren and Constance Jablonski star in a series of images that are both fantastical and romantic. The luminous beauty of the finest couture pieces is juxtaposed against a dimly lit garden background and a cluttered pile of chairs but somehow it all comes together perfectly. The pictures are haunting and standout as an especially memorable spin on the couture editorial.
