Hair Raising

November 26th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is nothing like a bit of beauty to brighten things up: looking at Daniel Jackson‘s pristine photos from the latest Vogue Nippon, we were instantly struck by the amazing artistry behind the hair and makeup. The hair-raising looks created by Didier Malige, are nothing short of amazing. Beauties, Julia Hafstrom, Sharon Kavjian and Kamila Filipcikova, wear tri-color bouffants and up-dos with flair. Add in Gucci Westman‘s dramatic makeup (check out the amazing drawn on eyebrows) (and Alastair McKimm‘s styling) and you have the making of a spectacular beauty story.

Prada’s New Groove

September 25th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

DV583277

If model casting has a Superbowl then it would have to be the Prada show. No show is as watched, critiqued or analyzed as Prada when it comes to casting. Model fans and industry bigwigs alike wait with baited breath to see just who Russell Marsh will pick and when the dust settles everyone gathers around the proverbial water cooler for a bit of Monday morning quarterbacking. Who was the opener? Who closed? Who should have been walking? For the love of god where is Sasha!?!?!

And so on, so forth.

Top row- Lindsey Wixson, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Sharon Kavjian. Bottom row- Lyndsey Scott, Kate Kosushkina, Shu Pei.

This time around the show had no shortage of surprises. If you could tear your eyes away from the hypnotically over the top clear plastic pumps you’d be quick to notice just how many first timers there were. Girls like Valerija Kelava, Mirte Maas, Nicole Hofman and Patricia van der Vliet all made stunning debuts. The talk of the town is of course Lindsey Wixson, whose impish features and perfect walk landed her the coveted girl one slot but Kate Kosushkina‘s ethereal ease closed the light and airy collection with a bang and who better to embody all that is light and breezy than the charming Miss Kosushkina!

Shu Pei and Liu Wen.

In a move that warmed my cold, jaded heart there was also a bit of diversity with Lyndsey Scott, Liu Wen and Shu Pei all walking and looking gorgeous in those Lolita pigtails courtesy of Guido Palau. It is wishful thinking to say that this could be the beginning of a campaign moment but after S/S 09′s blonde overload wouldn’t the ultimate cool move be a Steven Meisel shoot featuring this uber cool trio?

Burberry’s Beat

September 24th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Frothy pastels and lighter than air fabrics aside, the freshest thing at Burberry this season was the stunning cast. Handpicked by Barbara Nicoli, the young and energetic lineup featured a slew of faces so fresh that there were even a few we hadn’t seen before. Fashion thrives on newness but the great thing about this lineup was how well it represented the house’s ideals. The 25th Anniversary of London fashion week was the perfect time to reinforce all that Burberry stands for – youth, British eccentricity, tradition and just a touch of rock and roll ease to make it all palatable.

The multi-ethnic cast of beauties was completely in line with the diversity and vitality of London and best of all everyone looked smashing in Christopher Bailey’s collection. How lovely was rising star Taylor Kraemer look in her signature trench? Were you Googling to find out just who the mystery brunette beauty was -  Nicole Hofman is her name for those who were searching. Among the other pleasant surprises were appearances by Gracie Carvalho and an opening slot filled by Anna de Rijk.

Alternate Dimensions

July 10th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

In what has to be the coolest magazine gimmick in a long while, the latest issue of Dazed & Confused is presented in 3D. What better way to take in Terry Tsiolis‘ energetic shots of rising star Julia Hafstrom? The Prada stunner literally jumps off the page the second you put on your 3D glasses and Nicola Formichetti‘s futuristic styling fits the theme perfectly.

Dark Water

July 8th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Prada is always a campaign to watch each season and not just to see what engaging concept Steven Meisel comes up with next. The girls chosen for Prada have a habit of becoming sensations, which makes this season’s selections all the more intriguing. Kendra Spears, Julia Hafstrom and Anna de Rijk join Prada’s signature face Ymre Stiekema for an eerie image that combines cinematic mystery with Prada’s special breed of luxury.
