VEOIR 4: Body & Art Issue

March 23rd, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For the fourth issue of up and coming magazine VEOIR, fashion is romanticized as a stark accompaniment to bare form. The Body & Art issue features seductively imagined images by photographers like Ryan Michael Kelly, William Lords and Léa Nielsen and includes an interview with James Franco. A sleek Alana Zimmer fronts the issue in a high gloss breast plate styled by Nick Nelson. Continuing the motif William Lords makes fashion a second skin with designer pieces painted on models Jennifer Pugh and Kristel Van Valkenhoef. Throughout the zine, the stone-faced gazes of the models and spartan styling reveals in the shadows the edgy attitude of VEOIR. Check out our exclusive preview below.

In the latest issue of Dazed & Confused, Mikael Jansson photographs Julia Nobis looking beautifully futuristic, bundled up in winter trends. Not many people can make a dreary car-impound lot look chic and inviting, but the stunning Nobis and superstar stylist Alastair McKimm prove to us that she sure can.

Take a look inside the December issue of Dazed – from the artistic cover of James Franco to the fashion stories – now on Dazed Digital

Rebel, Rebel

June 13th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Artist, director, actor, author – is there any creative career James Franco hasn’t tried his hand at in recent years? Hollywood’s favorite multi-hyphenate seems keen on testing his skills in numerous arenas so it is unsurprising to see him giving fashion photography a go. In the newest Elle Franco shoots Agyness Deyn as a latter day James Dean (Deyn also serves as fashion editor) while Natalia Bonifacci plays Sal Mineo in Franco’s gender-bending tribute to Rebel Without A Cause.

It is always cool to see newcomers take on the traditional fashion editorial and Franco’s snapshots have a certain unstudied quality that makes them interesting; are you a fan of his efforts, or do you think he’s better off sticking to his day job? Let us know in the comments!

Boys Will Be…

October 25th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Menswear editorials have always played with ideas about androgyny and gender, but fashion is experiencing a drag moment these past few months. You could call it the Candy effect; the groundbreaking transgender fashion mag launched with a now infamous editorial / cover by Brett Lloyd and since then photographers from Nick Knight to Terry Richardson and Steven Klein have all incorporated drag looks in their photographs. Shots of boys in girls clothing test the versatility of male models (who knew Cesar Casier looked so great in a shift dress) and challenge archaic rules about who can wear what, but are you enjoying fashion’s love affair with all things drag? Let us know in the comments!
