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.

Honorable Mention

June 26th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

The model as the muse is a recurring theme in fashion and Glass Magazine features industry icon Carmen Kass for the cover of their latest issue in Summer’s key looks and fine jewelry. In the highly stylized black-and-white editorial, Bojana Tatarska beautifully shoots Kass in Dior, Givenchy, and Stella McCartney styled by Editor-in-Chief, Nicola Kavanagh. Standing to “honour” the warm season, the issue has a little bit of everything from their new venture into the world of design and architecture, to an exposé on esteemed photographer Fan Ho, to the humanitarian efforts of four professionals that are fighting to rid the World of HIV.

Cara’s Cover!

June 19th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

It was only a matter of time before Cara Delevingne got her first solo American Vogue cover. The July issue of the glossy is fronted by the cult-status model and actress photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. For the editorial, the Paper Town actress is styled by Tonne Goodman in Prada’s fall collection and is accompanied by co-star Nat Wolf. Vogue also put together a very sentimental video compilation of friends like Taylor Swift, Binx Walton and Kendall Jenner celebrating her big moment. Models.com remembers when Cara stopped by the office way back when in 2011 and, as she does, charmed her way into our hearts. See her talking about her love for performing here.

Bare Essentials

June 8th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For Russh magazine’s summer issue “Just As You Are” beauty is stripped down it its bare essentials: “Everyone agrees real beauty is the point where you decide to go with what you’ve got,” opens Editor in Chief Jess Blanch. Who better to encapsulate the mag’s motif than Sam Rollinson who naturally gleams on the cover simply photographed by Ward Ivan Rafik. Nastya Sten works gold and purple glitter paint ever so slightly in the beauty story also shot by Rafik with makeup artfully applied in shapes by Stevie Huynh with slick wettish hair by Brian Buenaventura. A second beauty story (this is the beauty issue after all) by James Nelson and Makeup artist Victoria Baron takes a more modest approach with simple rouge accents on lovely Eilika Meckbach. Have a look at the Models.com exclusive preview below and see the entire issue on stands June 11th.

Spring Clean

May 12th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Spring may have just barely started, but Spanish menswear magazine Varón Magazine is already looking ahead to the rest of the year, with a Summer/Autumn issue celebrating rebirth and renewal, out now. Coverboy Julius Gerhardt makes a striking comeback, fresh off walking for Prada exclusively in January after coming out of a life-threatening coma. Piczo opens the issue with a celebration of British designers, from upstarts like Craig Green and J.W. Anderson to old standbys Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood, styled by Hugo Lavín on Simon Fitskie.

Editorials by Lonny Spence and Yann Faucher lead into Autumn 2015 previews by Nacho Pinedo and Mark Kean, while interviews with Marni’s Consuelo Castiglione, Zegna’s Stefano Pilati, and Pablo Coppola of Bally add some heft. Rising designer Lou Dalton expounds on the merits of apprenticeships, and Frances Corner, head of the London College of Fashion, insists on the value of higher education—even in an age of rising tuition fees and diminishing job prospects. Varón has always celebrated the unconventional—previous cover stars include flamenco dancer Yiyo and parfumier Ben Gorham—and this tenth issue proves no different, with a profile on Jon-Allan Butterworth, the paracyclist who lost an arm in a rocket attack in Iraq and went on to win three silver medals at the Paralympic Games in London. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below.

Heart of Spain

May 7th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

After the success of the premier issue of EY! Boy Collection—with a hundred pages of new face Garrett Taber shot by Bruce Weber—Luis Venegas’ latest project celebrates the youth of his home country Spain with an issue photographed entirely by Daniel Riera starring the brand-new Jose Tengiz, who just signed with 5th Models in Barcelona on the strength of his youthful appeal showcased here in his first shoot. Over a hundred pages, Riera captures the energetic Tengiz, who has some of the cheeky charm of a young Mark Wahlberg, leaping off docks, rolling in the sand, and practicing the parkour that has been his longtime hobby. Discovered after reaching out to Spanish stylist Josie on Twitter, Tengiz is, as the back cover describes, “filled with energy, strength, beauty, and enthusiasm—some of the most positive values typically associated with youth.” Take a look at our exclusive preview of the issue—now available for sale at ByLuisVenegas.com—and accompanying video of Tengiz in action, below.
