Shades of Lara

July 3rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Lara Stone is a natural in front of the camera and since snagging her L’Oreal contract last year Ms. Stone has been amping up her status as a bonafide beauty icon. When you’re a model with bedroom eyes and lips born for lipstick it makes sense for editorials to play that up and that’s the case in Stone’s Elle France coverstory. Shot by Hans Feurer in his trademark style the feature has Lara in a variety of looks from smoky eyeliner to a hot pink pout. Makeup artist Charlotte Willer (Jed Root) plays with color to great effect while hairstylist Stephane Lancien crafts everything from a Bardot-esque ponytail to the perfect windswept coif.

Survivalism

May 1st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Luxury fashion might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you’re stranded on a desert island, but who says that a girl can’t accessorize herself out of a bad situation. Laurie Bartley (Management + Artists) creates a decadent version of survivalism in the pages of Numero Tokyo with Querelle Jansen playing the role of well-dressed crash survivor making the best of it in pieces from Louis Vuitton and Proenza Schouler. Stylist Felipe Mendes manages to make even the most extravagant designer pieces work in this unique scenario, while pared down hair and makeup by Dennis Gots (Jed Root) and Diego Sierralta keep Querelle looking disheveled yet unquestionably chic.

In Black & White

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Spring may be better-known as the season for bright prints and colors, but the latest issue of upscale menswear magazine Varon Magazine makes a very convincing argument for the purity and sharp beauty of clean black-and-white. Ben Gorham, founder of the exclusive Byredo fragrance collection, stars in the sharp cover story, lensed by Lonny Spence with styling by Varon’s fashion director Hugo Lavín, while the rest of the magazine is filled with many of the industry’s top new faces in a range of the season’s top designs. Bright young Brits Matthew Bell and Tom Gaskin can be seen in the main collections story, photographed by co editor in chief Nacho Pinedo and dressed by Lavín, while Elliot Vulliod is the centerpiece of a feature on the idiosyncratic designer Umit Benan. But for all its celebration of the here and now, the issue offers a sneak peek ahead as well, with an exclusive preview of Fall 2014 from rising British designer Craig Green captured by Piczo with a clinical austerity softened by gentle portraits that add just the right touch of sensitive emotion. Check out their Instagram page for more beautiful visuals.
