Quantcast

Spectator Sport

October 20th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

With the amount of controversy W‘s Kim Kardashian meets Barbara Kruger art issue cover generated, it was easy to forget that there was an entire issue filled with content. One stand out story is artist Alex Prager‘s slick editorial that merges her signature stylized and staged style, with a fashionable twist courtesy of stylist Carolyn Tate Angel. The eclectic cast comprised of Irina Lazareanu, Jessica Joffe, Binki Shapiro and Liza Thorn spends a day at the races and the unorthodox feel of Prager’s images makes for an especially appealing tale.

Bits & Bytes: Hanne on a Summery Day

May 21st, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Hanne by Andrew. On a lovely Friday in New York, Hanne stops by to see Andrew Weir for a casting.

22731-800w

————————————–

Photography news:

Unbelievable! David Bailey has worked with British Vogue for 50 years. See all the lovely ladies that came out to honor him. We salute you David!

Find out here about the Made in Brazil Magazine filled with some of the sexiest of male models of today (and where to order it). Part 2 is here. Get it, it’s a collector’s piece. We are announcing MODELS.com’s winners of the giveaways next week.

The Imagist has a fascinating interview with Hugh Lippe, definitely a young, talented photographer to watch.

Haiti is no longer so prevalent in the news but that doesn’t mean the Haitians need any less help. Look at these incredible images in a Art for Haiti auction that just began. Stam is in 2 of the shots; all the artwork is phenomenal and starting at outrageously affordable prices and for such a great cause; it’s a must see.

For those of you bemoaning the lack of naked women or breasts or just general salaciousness on Terry Richardson’s blog, don’t you fret… Andrew Richardson‘s Magazine is relaunching any day now. No, they are not related, except maybe metaphorically speaking in their obvious love for breasts.

If you’re in Paris, go check out the wonderful Ellen von Unwerth Cinema exhibition. (Till June 19th)

Not modeling related but how cool is Jed Root’s photographer Mary Ellen Matthews who is Saturday Night Live’s house photographer?

Fashion:

Why Riccardo Tisci matters. Here is Sans Artifice’s take on it.

If you missed it, Alber Elbaz, talks to Style.com in their Future of Fashion series.

OK. I finally get the hype about young Tavi now. Just read this post by her on the whole recent Terry kerfuffle and am blown away by the insightfulness of this 14 year old young lady.

Like 10 Magazine, we are obsessing over this bag. And damn you Tommy Ton for suddenly making us want all of these.

Katie Grand pens this moving tribute to industry powerhouse Katy Baggot who passed away so suddenly.

Anna Sui‘s book is coming out and we cannot wait! With an introduction by Steven Meisel, expect the book to have much fabulousness.

Anne Christensen rumored to fill the top slot at the New York Times’ T Magazine. We’ll let you know if it’s not true.

Modeling news:

From Marpessa to Carla Bruni to Mariacarla Boscono, former model turned agent to the superstars, Woman Milan’s Piero Piazzi is amazing. Read his interview and see a picture of him!

Talk about inspirational. Fernando Fernandes, you may remember got paralyzed from a car accident (see him here in the current Dolce Gabbana fragrance campaign) . He’s already in a new ad which just shot.

OK, this trailer made me cry. Incredible model/activist Liya Kebede, in Desert Flower, rocks my world portraying the incredible model/activist Waris Dirie.

Next in line to design is Irina Lazareanu, calling it Rini by Irina. She has phenomenal style though so it could be pretty darn good.

This just in. 9 Daughter & A Stereo, who repped some of the coolest, quirkiest boys around, is rumored to have closed. So sad if that’s true.

Wear With All

November 30th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The latest issue of Qvest, features the always intriguing Irina Lazareanu on its cover wearing a what appears to be a technicolor fur hat and matching pink blazer. On another model, this combination would be outrageous but as always, Irina makes it work. Henrik Bulow‘s colorful pictures and Simon Rasmussen‘s eclectic styling, combine to create a story that captures Irina at her most versatile: dressed in neon wigs, gift wrap, packing tape and loads of Margiela, Irina shows she can make absolutely anything look compelling.

Bits and Bytes: Multi Cover Mania

August 21st, 2009 |Posted by Betty

kateanother
Kate Moss by Craig McDean for Another Magazine. (for full story on the covers and Another Magazine’s Decade in Style, click here).

Joining in the multi cover party that V Magazine started with 4 Fall covers and the special edition V Magazine 19 cover bonanza by Paul Rowland, is Another Magazine‘s beauteous quartet of Natalie Portman, Vanessa Paradis, Kate Moss and Katie Holmes. Love Magazine also enters the fray with 2 covers, one of Coco Sumner (Sting’s daughter) and the other of young musician Alex Hartley. It looks like it’s never been a better time for readers with such a plethora of choices.

There’s always the next Kate Moss, but is this girl actually the one?

If you’ve ever met French model Vincent LaCrocq, you’ll know why he was picked for Alexander Wang‘s men’s lookbook. Completely swoonworthy.

When we want more black models in editorials, this is NOT what we were thinking of… Our own story on R’el and Melodie by Greg Kadel for Numero is also generating quite a discussion.

Annie Leibovitz, strange and sad story.

What is the future of fashion, modeling and the Internet? The Imagist ponders

September 10th’s Fashion’s Night Out in NYC promises to be big.. Mark your calendars now to meet supermodels, designers and photographers like Steven Klein and Annie Leibovitz. Click here for the official website.

How funny… the making of the Gucci campaign is preferred to the actual campaign.

Top model Sean O’Pry has been awarded the keys to his hometown city. Here’s a pic of him with his mayor.

13 year old style blogger Tavi is on the new POP cover…. and you are not.

Jessica White blogs; she talks about the ups and downs of her life. Besides the excitement of shooting for Sports Illustrated and Maybelline, she is frank about losing her money and the devastation of being sexually abused, this looks like a must read.

Speaking of all the calls for less Photoshopping… here’s Glamour Magazine‘s model with a belly and she looks beautiful!

Models go to the movies..Irina Lazareanu has landed the lead in the new Spike Lee movie! Agyness Deyn is also set to appear in a Kevin Sampson movie.

Kate Moss vs Scarlett Johansson, are we seeing double??

Color Schemes

May 12th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Irina Lazareanu bounds back into the pages of high fashion glossies (and into our hearts) via two new editorials by Miles Aldridge. Aldridge’s intense colors highlight Lazareanu’s quirky beauty in the pages of Vogue Italia and Vogue Nippon this month. With Suvi back on our radar and brand new Irina for all to enjoy it would seem all our old favorites are coming back from vacation. Who will turn up next?
