Boss Mode

June 30th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

It’s a moody, dark atmosphere that Jason Wu has envisioned for the Hugo Boss world. Doe-eyed beauty Edie Campbell and the dapper Clement Chabernaud take on a grooved-wall labyrinth in the Fall 2015 campaign shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Sleek tailoring and surprising pops of warm color are key to the visuals that exude a metropolitan edge with a confident swagger. Boss mode, indeed.

Power of Presence

June 15th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Anthony Vaccarello released his AW 15-16 campaign featuring a fierce looking Amber Valletta dressed in a more tomboyish swath of clothes–in contrast to the sexed-up Anja Rubik from SS 15. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin lensed the icon for the latest campaign zeroing in on Valletta’s seasoned presence. Fresh off the runway for Marc Jacobs and glowing in The New York Times Style Magazine‘s The Face editorial shot by Craig McDean, the prolific muse makes staying in-demand look easy.

Perfection

May 19th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

032C’s summer 2015 issue dubbed “What We Believe” features two equally dynamic and expressive covers. On one, Anja Rubik balletically sprawls out in front of creative movement director Stephen Galloway, also known as “The Model Whisperer”. The editorial, photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin also features Cora Emmanuel looking like perfection incarnate. With Stephen present it’s no coincidence the images are full of poise. For cover number two, voguing singer FKA Twigs works it for Juergen Teller channeling the grandfather of vogue-ing, Willi Ninja, for the spread. Those concept cues are brought into full effect with styling by Karen Clarkson and an above-the-lip liner by Naoko Scintu. You can find the issue available now on their site.

I am Legend

April 27th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For Vogue Brasil’s fortieth birthday, they laud none other than their own Brazilian legend, Gisele Bundchen. Though she walked her last show in the recent São Paolo Fashion Week, ending 20 years on the runway, the mega-model and mother continues to raise her fabled career to even more illustrious proportions. The cover shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin puts an unclothed and statuesque Gisele on a pedestal looking absolutely immortal. A very apropos choice.

And God Created Liya

April 22nd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

It’s been a long time coming but finally Liya Kebede returns for the May 2015 cover of Vogue Paris. Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, this issue marks the 13 year anniversary since the ageless goddess was last on the cover and the reunion is a sight for sore eyes.

It’s all about being bold this issue and Liya is shown on the cover modeling a print heavy jumpsuit from Dior‘s couture collection with a crown of curls set against a vivid red background. Inside the issue, Vogue Paris does a retrospective of its favorite shoots with the Ethiopian icon and features an in depth story titled Et, Dieu Crea Liya.

Throughout the years, Liya has also been a mainstay in publications like Vogue Italia, American Vogue, V Magazine & i-D and has worked with a bevy of photographers like Steven Meisel, Craig McDean, Annie Leibovitz, and Mert & Marcus. She has been the face of Estee Lauder and has been featured in campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, & Balenciaga. With her roles in movies like Desert Flower, The Good Shepherd, & Day of the Falcon she has been able to shown her wide range of creative passions.

Through her Liya Kebede Foundation she has used her extensive platform as an international supermodel to reduce maternal, newborn and child mortality in Ethiopia and around the world. She also uses fashion for the betterment of the World with her LemLem line which helps preserve the art of traditional weaving in Ethiopia and to offer work opportunities to local artisans.

Seeing Stars

April 21st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

It may be a mere coincidence but hopefully it’s something more positive- 4 eye-catching covers with some of our favorite black models of today. A shift is indeed rising: Joan Smalls on the cover of Lucky Magazine (normally reserved for celebrities), Binx Walton fronting Vogue Espana, Aya Jones gracing Numéro and Liya Kebede returning once again for a Vogue Paris cover (and the first black model on the cover since 2010’s issue with then new face, Rose Cordero). At any rate, we feel it’s a fantastic step in the right direction. With the return of models commandeering the covers of the major fashion glossies in the past year, we really hope that these four covers are but the beginning of this trend of including beauties of all colors.

Land of the Rising Sun

March 31st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

The third issue of the relaunched and wanderlust-provoking Holiday Magazine honors the Land of the Rising Sun. The “Japan Issue” nuances a journey through culture and characters profiling a carefully selected troupe of seminal Japanese characters. On the cover, captured by Josh Olins, is famous Kabuki actor Ebizo Ichikawa XI. Olins also contributes a photo essay starring Edie Campbell touring Japan. Tidy, reflective interviews are aplenty with the likes of Jean Paul Goude, Yohji Yamamoto, Serge Lutens and Kenzo Takada. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin photographs Natalie Westling and Karlie Kloss decorated in face paint for a vibrant beauty story. Setsuko Klossowska Rola photographed by Jamie Hawkesworth and writer Eric Réinhardt providing a seventy-seven Japan-pondering passages both make for novel features. The well-ordered travel and style review contemplates time and place as a thorough memoir would. That thoughtfulness is the heart of Holiday, available at Colette April 3rd.

Paige Views

February 27th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

A new model can burst onto the scene in a variety of ways, but now more than ever a strong following on social media can lead to big things in the modeling world. There is no better example of that than rising star Paige Reifler who has both impressive numbers on Instagram and the support of big names like Carine Roitfeld, Bruce Weber, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and Stephen Gan. Making an editorial splash this month Paige appears in in the latest issues of V Magazine, V Man and CR Fashion Book. Showcasing her sensual side while posing wearing little more than a Saint Laurent blanket Paige makes an modern pinup in in Inez & Vinoodh’s portrait. For VMan Paige sports denim cutoffs and a Saint Laurent blazer in Bruce Weber’s naturalistic shots. Finally in CR Paige embodies the spirit of the Bulgari brand for Johnny Dufort as part of a series of Carine helmed fantasy campaigns. Dipped in inky black water and glittering diamonds Paige transforms into a darkly elegant seductress.

But don’t take our word for it, here are a few words from the girl of the moment herself on working with Carine, posing for V and what the energy was like on all three sets.

“V Magazine has been a staple for me since I picked up my first copy years ago. Stephen Gan has mastered combining fashion, music, and culture while keeping V’s innately cool aesthetic. I look up to Stephen tremendously and I feel lucky to know him. It was a dream come true to be featured in the latest issue of V and to shoot with such incredibly talented and iconic photographers, Inez and Vinoodh. The energy on set with Bruce and his team is like I’ve never experienced. I’m so happy I got to work with Bruce and I hope to be able to shoot with him again soon! Shooting V Man with Bruce Weber at his house in Miami felt like a vacation. Carine Roitfelds bold and unique vision behind CR Fashion book is one of a kind. Her creativity is contagious, and to be a part of the latest issue is a thrill.” – Paige Reifler
