See Inside: Let’s Panic Issue 2

July 20th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Straddling the margins between art and fashion, Issue 2 of Let’s Panic Magazine is trickling into stands in the U.S.A. now and Europe to follow.  The large format, in-your-face magazine, the project of photographer Greg Kadel, is a collection of inspired editorials, hued from the bold and experimental to the indulgent to the introspective. The thoughtful list of creators and contributors is worthy of praise – Boo George, Mario Sorrenti, Jeff Bark, Jennifer Starr, Judy Blame and Mark Lebon to name a few. On that note, Editor in Chief, Aaron Ward writes, “Of all the steps taken in the creation of an issue of Let’s Panic, the one we most enjoy is the exploratory stage, the part where meetings and conversations introduce us to new people, novel ideas and undiscovered creative twists.”

Inside the magazine, Greg Kadel photographs Jac Jagaciak for a vivid, varicolored beauty story. Shot through water that shifts the light, beauty team Fulvia Farolfi and Nicolas Jurnjack  produce gorgeous tides of blues, rouges and yellows. Editor-slash-photographer Aaron Ward abstractly shoots a model pressed against a pane of glass, to the effect of leaves pressed in a book.  Other editorials breathe life into archival images, like the cover image from Mario Sorrenti’s black-and-white, road trip portraits or casting director Jennifer Starr’s multitude of polaroids.

Txema Yeste creates an erotically charged fashion fantasy with Jac Jagaciak in the pages of Numero. Styled in revealing jet black looks by Franck Benhamou and sporting short, gamine hair Jac takes on a whole new persona. The strong, at times androgynous woman she portrays in this story  is a striking change from the way she’s usually photographed and she pulls the look off with aplomb, conveying the right mix of sensuality and confidence in all her images. Yeste’s saturated color palette and the stark assortment of ensembles make for a thrilling tribute to the season’s obsession with powerdressing.

Campaign Confidential

July 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The ads keep on coming, check out a few more of our faves from the season – take a look back at our previous campaign favorites post too.


While we can’t imagine either Nicolas Ghesquière or Steven Meisel spending a lazy weekend at the shore, the Balenciaga campaign is set in such an idyll. Fresh faces Anniek KortleveLinn ArvidssonHirschy HirschfelderJulier BuggeJuliet Ingleby and Rosie Tapner lay out on the dunes in those eccentric looks from F/W.


Simple, clean and led by a stellar cast, Chanel’s fresh ads feature Kati Nescher, Lindsey Wixson & Cora Emmanuel as styled by Carine Roitfeld. Naturally, Karl Lagerfeld is behind the camera – which depending on your perspective you either love or hate, that said the casting on this is flaw free.

Dolce & Gabbana

A taste of Italian nostalgia shot by Giampaolo Sgura and featuring Monica Bellucci, Bianca Balti and Bianca Brandolini – each image feels like a still from a Pasolini film.


Valentino once again gives us a vision of pure class from the iconic Deborah Turbeville. Elegantly color coordinated looks on Jac JagaciakCaroline Brasch Nielsen and Frida Gustavsson – what’s not to love?


When you have Joan Smalls and Karl Lagerfeld you don’t really need much else. With the natural setting and powerful poses, this new ads remind us a bit of Anja Rubik‘s S/S 10 ads for the luxe line.

Better Than Brad? : 5 Chanel Campaign Alternatives

May 10th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Obvious fake ad is obviously fake 

Like everyone else on earth when we heard the news that Hollywood star Brad Pitt was going to be fronting the latest Chanel No. 5 campaign we were surprised. While we like Pitt well enough, we’d rather see him headlining a blockbuster than waxing poetic about fragrance. Unless of course he’s wearing the Chanel No. 5 scent himself – that we’d like to hear about. Celebrities have a long history with Chanel No. 5, with everyone from Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet and Nicole Kidman fronting the campaign, but we’re of the mindset that no one does it better than a model.

Granted, we understand that a having a mega-popular superstar in an ad will probably get a brand more attention than they know what to do with and all publicity is good publicity, but we can’t help but ponder which models would have been just as good when it comes to posing. Here are 5 Karl approved alternative who could fill Brad’s shoes – just in case they decide to go in another direction next time…


Wouldn’t it be nice to see Karl’s favorite blonde Brad snatch up a high profile campaign like Chanel No. 5? It could be cute – imagine little Hudson sneaking into every picture!


Think of the accompanying campaign music video complete with Katy Perry cameo! Think of the general online outrage it would spark! Think of the gifs!

THE GIRLSSaskia de Brauw, Jac JagaciakCoco RochaFreja Beha ErichsenHeidi Mount – the list goes on!

Who says the new campaign has to be fronted by a guy? Forget the gimmicks and go with a group of models who have the star power, personality and presence to pull off anything. Saskia is already in Chanel’s latest ads, Jac Jagaciak is already the face of Chanel beauty and Coco is a perennial Lagerfeld fave who gets bonus points for tweeting her contention with the Pitt appointment. Feisty! We like it!

THE ACTRESSES – Mélanie Laurent, Mylène Jampanoï or Anna Mouglalis

If it absolutely has to be a celebrity, couldn’t the honor go to one of the gorgeous stars of French cinema? Sure Nicolas Ghesquiere has already got his claws in Charlotte Gainsbourg and Léa Seydoux is still representing Prada, but what of the superb, Mylène Jampanoï or Karl muse Anna Mouglalis? Granted, neither of them have the name recognition of Pitt, but what they lack in international attention they more than make up for in chic.

THE META MOVEKarl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld shot by Karl Lagerfeld dressed in Chanel designs by Karl Lagerfeld, with creative direction by Karl Lagerfeld and special thanks to Karl Lagerfeld. This could work.

All this said, we’re still curious about just what the Chanel / Pitt collaboration will look like. We secretly loved that ridiculous (and ridiculously beautiful) Nicole Kidman No. 5 short film.

Cover to Cover : November

October 17th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

November provides us with an unusually high supply of beautiful covers featuring our favorite girls, but which one is the best of the bunch? Tell us your thoughts on this month’s lineup of covers.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley by Alexi Lubomirski on Vogue Germany
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and Rosie never fails to look sexy, but it would have been nice to see her in some couture.

Mariacarla Boscono on Vogue Korea
As one of the girls who can do no wrong, Mariacarla never fails to excite, but we’re not sure if this icy image illustrates the ‘Woman Power’ headline.

Naomi Campbell by Ronald Dick on Lurve Magazine
The combo of Gareth Pugh and no-eyebrows is a striking look on the iconic Ms. Campbell.

Bambi Northwood Blyth by JM Ferrater METAL Magazine
The edgy Spanish must read gives us an elegant and delicately beautiful image of Bambi at her best.

Edita Vilkeviciute by Peter Lindbergh on Vogue China
Edita, Lindbergh and loads of Vuitton, what’s not to love?

Miranda Kerr by Jillian Davison on Harper’s Bazaar Australia
Mrs. Bloom in a curve conscious Mary Katrantzou ensemble that grabs your attention.

Lara Stone by Mario Sorrenti on Vogue Japan
At this point everyone is probably tired of seeing that Givenchy collection on magazine covers, but Lara looks fresh nonetheless.

Alina Baikova by Nicole Bentley on Vogue Australia
It is always summer somewhere and Aussie Vogue rings in the season with Alina in stripes and brights.

Lindsey Wixson by Phil Poynter on W Korea
Dramatic posing and an outlandish outfit bring this image to life – bonus points to anyone who can ID the ensemble!

Jac Jagaciak by Nino Munoz on Numero Tokyo
Jac never fails to look sweet, though it would have been lovely to see a smile on this ‘Gentle-lady’ themed cover.
