Wu’s Women

December 18th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It wouldn’t be campaign season without the sight of Jason Wu enjoying a meal with a supermodel. This season the lovely lady is Karen Elson and the locale is Indochine! Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and art directed by Patrick Li, the campaign is a winning addition to a stellar series. Clad in slinky dresses from Wu’s elegant spring showing Karen captures the allure of the Wu woman – sexy, modern and always ready for an evening on the town.

Stylist: Kate Young | Hair: James Pecis (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management)| Makeup: Jeanine Lobell | Mancurist: Gina Viviano

The Silk Road

November 19th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s difficult not to have a soft spot for American Vogue‘s actor + model editorials and over the years the magazine has given us more than a few memorable pairings; Gisele and George Clooney, Gemma Ward and Josh Hartnett, Liya Kebede & Andre 3000, the list goes on. For the December issue Vogue takes things to the next level, enlisting Kate Moss and this year’s Oscar front-runner Chiwetel Ejiofor for a Mario Testino (Art Partner) helmed story that takes the pair to Istanbul on a romantic getaway. Sporting resort looks from BurberryJason Wu and a bit of SS14 Proenza Schouler as styled by Tonne Goodman, the pair looks resplendent. With architectural wonders like the Çinili Köşk as the backdrop and Testino showcasing the beauty of Istanbul in every shot the story also serves as an especially chic travel diary. 

See the full story on Vogue.com including a look behind the scenes with Tonne Goodman

Dinner for Wu

June 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

After Spring’s jaunt to La Grenouille with Stephanie Seymour, fall finds Jason Wu at another of New York’s venerable restaurants with a supermodel companion. The line’s sleek Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helmed ad, art directed by Patrick Li and shot at the fabled uptown outpost of Mr. Chow features Christy Turlington and is the second in Wu’s appetizing series. In the colorful campaign shots Turlington sits perched atop a booth looking resplendent in designs from Wu’s tour de force ‘Extreme Femininity’ collection.

When asked about the Turlington collaboration Wu stated, “I’ve been so privileged to work with such talented models and women who continue to inspire me.” Turlington personifies the essence of the Wu woman- formidable, feminine, and always glamorous. Christy’s comments were just as complimentary, “I always love working with my friends Inez and Vinoodh and it was great getting to meet and spend some time with Jason.” Sounds like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Wu’s Spring Fling

January 17th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

For his spring collection Jason Wu looked to the sex appeal and visual impact of Helmut Newton‘s photographs, so naturally when it came time to create a campaign Wu wanted visuals every bit as powerful as those Newton created. The bar was set high, but who better to handle the task than the dream team of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin handling photography, Kate Young styling, Patrick Li art directing and the one and only Stephanie Seymour striking the poses. Shot at La Grenouille and seeped in the kind of old school glamour that never loses its appeal, Wu’s campaign is as good as it gets. The designer himself even joins in on the fun, sharing space with La Seymour in an instantly iconic shot.

MDC Exclusive: Jason’s Silhouette

February 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

For his line’s very first campaign Jason Wu focuses on the silhouette. Shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Joe McKennathe ads starring Julia Frauche are as elegant and beautiful as we’ve come to expect from Wu.

The 50s couture inspired pieces from the spring collection look look flawless, as does Miss Frauche. Chosen for her unique mix of fragile beauty and strength, Julia served as muse for the images – fitting given that Jason’s S/S 12 runway was the very first one she walked in New York.

Take a look at this shot launching exclusively on models.com of Julia modeling those impeccable floral prints and retro shades from the show.

mdc ♥s : current obsessions

January 29th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

We will always be a little obsessed with Daria Werbowy, clearly Vogue Paris seems to share our feelings

THE COFFEE TABLE MUST HAVEWill Cotton: Paintings and Works on Paper The singularly beautiful first retrospective of Cotton’s work will take your breath away. Those eye-catching candy filled paintings of women in various states look as lush as ever. The coffee table keeper from Rizzoli is filled with inspiring and downright decadent imagery.

THE SCENT OF HEAVENNest Blue Garden Diffuser Ever wonder what heaven smells like? Probably a bit like this richly scented hydrangea, hyacinth and forget-me-nots blend that quickly fills the room with an intoxicating aroma. We’ve long been fans of Nest’s elegant offerings (keep your eyes peeled for their collaboration with Jason Wu this Spring) but this might just be our favorite in the entire line.

MODEL WORTHY BEAUTYEstee Lauder Daywear BB Cream The beauty blogosphere has been buzzing about BB creams for awhile now, but when we heard about the one that keeps Constance Jablonski looking flawless we had to try it. With lightweight coverage and a gentle feel the Estee BB falls somewhere between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation. The creamy texture and radiant finish left us thoroughly impressed.

FAST FASHIONKarl for Net-A-Porter Net-a-Porter understands that you can never have too much Karl Lagerfeld in your life. Where Karl goes, fashion follows and the crowds came out in full force for the launch of his eponymous line for NAP. Don’t worry you can still scoop up some things for yourself – who can resist with the affordable prices and impressively versatile designs.

THE JEWELRY STATEMENTManiamania We’ve been in love with all things Maniamania since their short film featuring Abbey Lee Kershaw opened our eyes to their edgy collection of mystically minded baubles. Created by Aussie fashion insiders Tamila Purvis and Melanie Kamsler, the line is filled with pieces that demand attention. We covet the timeless beauty of their smoky quartz ring, The Eternal. 

THE MASSAGE MASTERKoh Gen Do Macro Vintage Massage Royal Massage Milk We love products that do double duty- this gem from Japanese line Koh Gen Do can be used as a moisturizer, primer and facial massage cream. Added bonus, it feels like silk on the skin and smells divine.

THE NECKPIECE - Givenchy Floral Scarf It might be too early to predict the scarf of the season, but this is a strong candidate. It gives you just hint of the eclectic Tisci look and has yet to become as overexposed as those Rottweiler sweatshirts.

THE ARM CANDY - Balenciaga Timepiece Elegant, understated and off-kilter enough to be worthy of the Balenciaga name.

THE KIT & KABOODLEKiehl’s Ultra Facial Kits

As one of the most beloved brands on the market, Kiehl’s represents quality and innovation in all things skincare. Their Ultra-Facial range is beloved by dermatologists, beauty editors and anyone with a healthy appreciation of good skin. The overwhelming popularity of the line has led to the release of two brand new kits – The Ultra-Facial 3 Step & Ultra-Facial Oil Free, that provide an assortment of Kiehl’s goodies designed to cleanse, tone and moisturize all at a fraction of the price.
