Simply Sims

July 23rd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

If you love the work of David Sims, then you’re going to love August’s Vogue Paris; Sims’ sleek style gets 65 pages worth of editorial space within the issue. Carine Roitfeld styles the massive portfolio of fall looks from labels like Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen and the pictures don’t miss a beat. Sims mixes studio shots, location shots, color and black and white for an editorial that covers a great deal of designer territory; each brand gets an image that is uniquely theirs and each girl looks gorgeous in her pictures.

The Campaign Trail

July 13th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

It isn’t even August, but we’ve already gotten a peak at the majority of fall campaigns, new ads just keep coming out of the woodwork and this week’s batch is especially eclectic. Moschino offers up a cowgirl themed ad with an over the top image of Alessandra Ambrosio shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Celine repeats their successful formula of Juergen Teller portraits, enlisting Sigrid Agren and Emma Balfour to wear Phoebe Philo’s sleek designs. Tommy Hilfiger plays up the All American heritage of the brand with a roadtrip themed campaign shot by Craig McDean, starring Noah Mills, Iselin Steiro, Heloise Guerin, Jacquelyn Jablonski and a host of others. Last but certainly not least, JPG shows Crystal Renn, Emma Xie and Kelly Moreira looking phenomenal in pieces from his Russian themed collection.

Mario Sorrenti and Marie-Amelie Sauve take Iselin Steiro to the next level in Interview magazine. Starting from a nude shot of Iselin standing on a clear block and moving through to full on futuristic look, complete with mohawk – the series explores the nature of transformation and how a few changes in wardrobe can alter our perceptions drastically. Whether she is bare or almost unrecognizable, Iselin works every pose and the piled on nature of the shoot shows us just how good Marie-Amelie’s styling can be.

The Feminine Mystique

February 18th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

There is something about the way Mario Sorrenti creates a picture that just brings out the best in his subjects. In the latest issue of W, Sorrenti takes 18 of the most beautiful models and shoots them looking seductive and sensual: some of the pictures work better than others but he manages to capture the essence of each girl.

Project Runway

January 13th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Every month Steven Meisel comes up with another ingenious theme for Vogue Italia and this month is all about backstage : Meisel and Lori Goldstein recreate the energy and atmosphere of a runway show but not without adding in a hint of VI’s wry humor. Everything one would expect to see is here; from backstage catfights to wardrobe malfunctions and cigarette breaks. As always the model lineup is impeccable with appearances by Agyness Deyn, Alla Kostromichova, Anna de Rijk, Anna Selezneva, Constance Jablonski, Daria Strokous, Freja Beha Erichsen, Gwen Loos, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Irina Kulikova, Iris Strubegger, Isabeli Fontana, Iselin Steiro, Jac Jagaciak, Jamie Bochert, Kamila Filipcikova, Kasia Struss, Kendra Spears, Karlie Kloss, Lara Stone, Lily Donaldson, Liya Kebede, Magdalena Frackowiak, Mirte Maas, Natasha Poly, Patricia van der Vliet, Ranya Mordanova, Rianne Ten Haken, Rose Cordero, Sasha Pivovarova, Sessilee Lopez, Sigrid Agren, Siri Tollerod, Snejana Onopka and Viktoriya Sosonkina.

Ad Hoc

January 5th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

With every label going for something unique this season, Spring’s campaigns are a mixture of fresh concepts and familiar motifs. Balenciaga’s unusual cut and paste ads by Steven Meisel, feature newcomers Mirte Maas and Patricia van der Vliet alongside the perennially perfect Iselin Steiro. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Loewe takes a more traditional route with Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shooting  Daria Werbowy surrounded by flowers in bloom. Last but not least, Dior goes for the nostalgia with a retro ad straight out of the 1940s: Karlie Kloss by Steven Meisel looks every inch the starlet with her waved hair and red lips.

They got pictures of somebody — some asshole — I’ll never understand how editors and publishers think — showing just a famous person with blurbs all over their face. I’ll never understand why they think that would be something people would want to buy. I don’t get it.” Yes, we don’t get it either, George.

Gaga for Givenchy

October 6th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Givenchy S/S 2010

Givenchy has become the Paris show to watch when it comes to eclectic casting. With its mix of re-discovered favorites, fresh faces and house staples there was truly something for everyone. Whether you’re a 90s model fan enjoying the welcome shock of seeing both Michele Hicks and Kirsty Hume on the runway again or new faces watcher charting the course of fast rising star Antonella Graef there was excitement to be found. Riccardo Tisci’s graphic black and white collection shone on each and every model selected but there were a few girls in particular that grabbed our attention.

Antonella Graef

Antonella opens Givenchy

While Antonella Graef (Top S/S 10 Newcomer) snagged the bulk of our attention with her second time opening Givenchy (she opened couture too) there were almost too many cool girls to count. Mirte MaasAlla Kostromichova and Jacquelyn Jablonski continue to book only the best shows and top 10 newcomer Frida Gustavsson‘s winning streak extended into Paris. Exclusives like the Elena Ivanova (WM Paris) and Nastya Karzan provided welcome surprises and Tisci favorites like Lily Donaldson, Iselin Steiro, Lakshmi Menon and Meghan Collison all made appearances – important to note given just how many established girls spent their S/S seasons away from the catwalk.

Girls of Givenchy

Gwen Loos (Marilyn). Emily DiDonato. Jacquelyn Jablonski.

One of the most continuously interesting things about Givenchy’s casting is that each season it manages to change our view of certain girls. Take Maybelline face Emily DiDonato for example. Pre-Givenchy and she’s the the definition of wholesome, All-American sexiness (witness OTM’s video interview with her)-  a little eyebrow bleach and matte lipstick later and she’s one of Tisci androgynously beautiful heroines. Same goes for Italian bombshell Bianca Balti and the sultry Elena Melnik. The way every girl transforms once they enter into Tisci’s world is really what makes this show as powerful as it is season after season.
