Seeing Stars

April 21st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

It may be a mere coincidence but hopefully it’s something more positive- 4 eye-catching covers with some of our favorite black models of today. A shift is indeed rising: Joan Smalls on the cover of Lucky Magazine (normally reserved for celebrities), Binx Walton fronting Vogue Espana, Aya Jones gracing Numéro and Liya Kebede returning once again for a Vogue Paris cover (and the first black model on the cover since 2010’s issue with then new face, Rose Cordero). At any rate, we feel it’s a fantastic step in the right direction. With the return of models commandeering the covers of the major fashion glossies in the past year, we really hope that these four covers are but the beginning of this trend of including beauties of all colors.

News of the Future

April 8th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Resistance isn’t always dramatic and still waters run deep in Document Journal‘s latest issue. “Come Here, Look Back, Move Forward” serves as chieftains Nick Vogelson & James Valeri‘s editorial reaction to the new media landscape, from which a wave of artists are distilling distinctive, sober visuals. The two covers celebrate the unwavering Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone. Collier Schorr artfully captures the irrepressible beauty of Daria while Tyrone Lebon lenses a sanguinely casual Lara. Schorr’s mega-spread includes Freja Beha ErichsenJoan Smalls and more. Harley Weir shoots a spectrum of introspective stories with familiar names like Rianne van Rompaey, Chloe Sevigny and Binx Walton. The photographer chose Russia to portray a cast of delicately posed males acting in dissent from the country’s tenets of masculinity. Document also includes “The Smell of Us”, the Larry Clark & Jonathan Anderson collaborative insert book. Check out the preview below, only on models.com!

10’s Big Time Sensuality

January 30th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

10 Magazine.
Nick Knight.
Victoria’s Secret.

The girls of VS unite for an edition of 10 that targets sensuality and glamour. In a special collaboration with ShowStudio.com and Nick Knight, editor in chief Sophia Neophitou reimagines the beauties of VS as futuristic pinups. Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, Behati Prinsloo, Lais Ribeiro, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Devon Windsor, Sui He, Cindy Bruna, Barbara Fialho and Ming Xi feature in psychedelic portraits by Knight that radiate sexiness and beauty from his uniquely artistic perspective. The 12 covers are in part a commemoration of VS’s recent jaunt to London for its annual fashion show, but more than that they serve as a truly modern interpretation of sexiness a fact Neophitou cherishes, “Without a moment of hesitation I knew that the perfect person for this creative adventure would be Nick Knight. I can honestly say he surpassed every expectation I had and created a series of memorable, unique images.”

Balmaniacs

December 12th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Olivier Rousteing‘s vision for Balmain has always been about powerful, provocative women so it seems natural to see his Spring/Summer campaign filled with supermodels. Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and newcomer Crista Cober join forces to play video games and eat cheeseburgers in Mario Sorrenti‘s (Art Partner) action packed ads for Balmain. Sorrenti never fails to bring energy to his images and this time around he makes the usually elegant cast engage in a little combat. If kicking and screaming supers isn’t your idea of a good time fear not, the subtler images have the beauties duking it out via Nintendo rather than clawing each others eyes out. The art direction by Pascal Dangin adds another layer of enjoyment, with patterns and colors perfectly coordinating even as the punches are thrown.

Pirelli’s Passion

November 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The Pirelli Calendaris a time honored tradition and every year they turn up the heat another notch with the calendar’s blend of haute fashion and sensuality. This year’s cal is a collaboration amongst industry legends with Steven Meisel shooting, Carine Roitfeld styling and Pat McGrath and Guido Palau providing make up and hair. With a team that illustrious you expect only the very best and the final images deliver that level of quality. If the end result seems even more fashion forward than usual, it’s no accident, “I didn’t want to make a conceptual calendar,” says Meisel “or link it to some particular location, but rather to create 12 posters in which women, in all their sensuality, are the absolute protagonists of 12 very different images. Since I wanted to limit the use of clothes and accessories and since I had absolute creative freedom, I found it very exciting to play with the colors, the makeup, and the materials. It was a very rewarding experience.”

Take a first look inside the calendar’s gorgeous shots of Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, Sasha Luss and Anna Ewers below.
