Love U 4 Life

March 24th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Jessica Stam has long been a fashion favorite for her ability to bridge the gap between aloof elegance and downtown edgel. Is it any wonder then that RUSSH has picked her for their latest covergirl? Issue 39 features Stam looking edgy yet refined in a shoot by Will Davidson, styled by Stevie Dance. Sporting her own vintage rock t-shirts one minute and looks from Proenza and Alaia the next, Stam is the definition of cool and the perfect fit for the issue’s music theme. For more from this issue, check out Russh’s website.

Easy, Breezy

October 7th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Does anyone do nonchalance better than Jessica Stam? The perennial cool blonde always looks like she’s lounging, even when dressed in head to toe finery. For this month’s British Vogue, Lina Scheynius taps into Stam’s sleepy-eyed charm for a chill editorial styled by Bay Garnett and the results are sensational.

Visual Branding

August 13th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Nothing conveys the identity of a brand quite like its advertising and more and more mainstream fashion brands are attempting to tweak their image via campaigns that utilize fashion’s biggest powerplayers. Case in point, the F/W campaign for conservative brand, Talbots features the edgy pairing of Linda Evangelista and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Meanwhile Jones New York enlists Annie Leibovitz and a slew of top names like Hilary Rhoda, Jessica Stam, Hana Soukupova, Jacquetta Wheeler, Du Juan, Yasmin WarsameAminata Niaria and Ujjwala Raut for their ads. Not to be left in the dust, mall staple Esprit enlists Coco Rocha for its collection ads and Anne Vyalitsyna, Du Juan and Missy Rayder by Mariano Vivanco for the mainline.

The addition of a familiar (and fashionable) face can add a layer of cool to a brand’s image, but does the trick work? Did any of these ads enhance your opinion of the labels in question? Tell us.

Jones New York’s impressive cast

Esprit chose top models like Coco, Missy, Du & Anne V for both its lines
