Image Adjustments

January 19th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With top models, A-List photographers and a fresh outlook, popular brands are redefining their image just in time for campaign season.

STYLING Karl Templer
MODELS Arran SlyJoan SmallsLara StoneMatthew TerryMyles CrosbyToni Garrn

CK knows how to create an image filled with sex appeal and they’ve never shied away from pushing the envelope when it comes to visuals. CK Jeans’ ads are as much about the sex appeal of Lara Stone and Toni Garrn as they are about the brightly colored denim. Fabien Baron‘s creative direction keeps this M&M wet n’wild extravaganza on the sleek side, but make no mistake the line is out to turn up the heat with these shots.

TRUE RELIGION
PHOTOGRAPHY Alexi Lubomirski
STYLING Patti Wilson
MODELS Brad Kroenig, Tallulah Morton, Julia Dunstall & Alicia Rountree

Brad Kroenig as an easy rider? That’s a concept we can get behind. True Religion focuses on personality for Spring with ads themed around denim clad mavericks, wanderers and rebels. The American west plays a strong role in Alexi’s imagery as does Patti Wilson’s always inventive styling. Check out the behind the scenes video for a sense of the atmosphere on the day of the shoot.

JUICY COUTURE
PHOTOGRAPHY Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
STYLING Melanie Ward
MODELS Anna Selezneva

Juicy has pulled in heavy hitters Inez & Vinoodh to focus on the line’s fashionable side. Does Anna S. looking chic on the streets of Los Angeles make you forget about those ubiquitous velour sweatsuits? Maybe not, but I&V will always give you a great shot of a blonde tossing her hair.

TOPSHOP
PHOTOGRAPHY Josh Olins
STYLING Kate Phelan
MODELS Lara Mullen, Magda Laguinge & Marihenny Pasible

Two sides to every young woman – the glamorous diva and the girl next door, Topshop illustrates the concept via contrasting Olins images of the campaign’s fresh faces. It is impressive how high end Topshop’s fast fashion pieces look with the right styling. If we didn’t know better we’d swear that white dress on Marihenny was Versace…

DIESEL
PHOTOGRAPHY Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
STYLING Ludivine Poiblanc
MODELS Alison NixAshley SmithCatherine McNeilDmitriy TannerLiu WenMaria PalmPatrick Kafka & Simon Nessman

A massive robot, a dollhouse on fire, Catherine McNeil emerging from a potted plant, Diesel goes for the offbeat with their wide array of props and while we’re not sure what the overarching message behind this imagery is, but it is certainly striking.

Color Code

Though Francois Nars is best known for his makeup artistry (remember the incredible new wave looks at Marc Jacobs F/W 09) and eponymous cosmetics line he has also made waves as a photographer. The latest issue of Vogue Nippon features Nars’ elegant style for what else – a stellar beauty editorial. Platinum blondes Julia Dunstall, Iekeliene Stange and Daul Kim wear daring, colorful looks courtesy of Diane Kendal and they manage to make even rainbow shadows and pastel lips look wearable.

Though Natalia Vodianova is a fantastic cover model for this month’s British Vogue, let us not forget the divine Lara Stone who has a lush spread inside the mag by Alasdair McLellan wearing the season’s most coveted swimsuits. 

———————————

If you have $25,000 to spare, buy the Elton John Aids Foundation Portfolio.. You’ll get work by Juergen Teller, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst to name just a few of the star artists.

Tatiana did not like the Met’s Model as Muse. Here’s her critique.

Lara Stone is “inside the Chanel fitting room” with Baptiste Giabiconi. Video produced by Mr Lagerfeld! Pics on WWD here.

Fashionista chats with J Crew’s Creative Director, Jenna Lyons who adores Behati Prinsloo!

Though Kate Moss is on the cover of Tar, Sans Artifice asserts, it’s NOT a fashion magazine. There are however, wonderfully disturbing images of Kate and Natasa Vojnovic, here.
