CR’s Jolie Laide

February 26th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

CR Fashion Book begins each issue with a unifying concept and this time around Carine Roitfeld and co started with the idea of jolie-laide or unconventional beauty. Karl Lagerfeld and Anthony Maule (Jed Root) shoot a lineup of new faces who fit the bill with Julia Hafstrom, Sarah Brannon, Antonina Petkovic, Issa Lish, Stella Lucia and Molly Bair looking chic on Lagerfeld’s stylized black and white covers.

As daughter of one of modeling’s legends, Anna Cleveland has always had a place within the world of fashion, but this year the gamine beauty has come into her own with work that raises the bar. You’ll find Anna in the pages of CR Fashion Book, Lanvin‘s latest campaign and on the couture runways for designers like Jean Paul Gaultier and Elie Saab. In an exclusive letter in CR Fashion book, Anna opens up on building her fashion family, working with Carine Roitfeld and her current career high – read the full letter at CR Fashion Book.com 

On her generation of models: I like to call everyone that I encounter on the same wavelength a ‘fashion family.’ Just like my mother had one with Karl Lagerfield, Yves Saint Laurent, Antonio Lopez, and Andy Warhol. Now I’m finally seeing my group fall into place. It’s the best thing to be surrounded by so many people that have such large input in the fashion world, and to absorb every minute of it, like a sponge, with delight, giving everything you can in the moment to create an image of art.

On the fashion industry: Fashion is a way of life. Clothing can make you feel a certain way, and all I want is to give people that feeling. I am very proud to be part of this world.

On working with Carine: I remember my first editorial. It was with CR [Carine Roitfeld] for French Vogue, at 11 or 12 years old. I was, at the time, the youngest girl ever to pose for a 13-page story. At that age, I thought that I was ready to conquer the world and my dreams; flying to Paris for a fashion shoot was just a part of that fantasy. I thought that I was all grown up and tough. In reality, I was far from it at that time.

Chanel’s Belle

January 8th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

To say Karl Lagerfeld is fond of Gisele Bundchen is something of an understatement. Over the past year the supermodel has become the face of everything Chanel from beauty products, to the classic No. 5. Given this mutual affection and Bundchen’s role in the brand’s now iconic “protest march” fashion show, it seems fitting to see Gisele as the face of the line’s spring campaign. Shot by Karl as always the ads depict a barefoot and beautiful Bundchen on freewheeling through the streets of Paris. Armed with a folded newspaper, crochet bindle and layers of Chanel (naturally) Gisele cuts a fine figure.

Chanel’s Knock Outs

July 11th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

After that impressive supermarket set for the fall show you might have expected Chanel to deliver a campaign filled with walls of groceries and models pushing carts to the checkout line, but Karl Lagerfeld likes to keep us on our toes. Eschewing the familiar and taking the brand’s imagery into an even more unexpected place Karl sets the fall ads in a boxing gym. We’re sure more than a few fights have broken out over Chanel’s quilted bags and little black jackets so the venue seems oddly fitting. Cara Delevingne and Binx Walton are front and center in Lagerfeld’s images looking cool and chic amidst the gritty backdrop – considering the collection’s sportswear leanings the ultra-cool ads seem right on target.

Beauty & the Beast

February 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

A tale as old as time! Beautiful young woman, a ravenous beast and Karl Lagerfeld? Continuing with their theme of fairytales CR Fashion Book unleashes another modern take on a classic story with Kate Upton and Marlon Teixeira re-imagining Beauty & the Beast with a luxury twist. Karl shoots and Kate dons an assortment of sensual looks complete with Agent Provocateur lingerie and a touch of Chanel joaillerie for good measure. Though it’s hard to see anything even remotely off-putting about a Givenchy clad Marlon Teixeira, the story provides the right mix of fantasy and fashion.
