July 3rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Gucci has always had a clear understanding of its ideal woman and each season it picks a cast that reflects that ethos. This time around Frida Gianinni and co. take things one step further with a campaign featuring seven top models who exemplify the modern Gucci woman. Anja Rubik, Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann, Nadja Bender, Suvi Koponen, Karmen Pedaru and Natasha Poly  feature in stylized shots by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. (Art Partner) In a season filled with high concept campaigns it’s refreshing to see ads where the clothes and the girls are at the forefront. The collection’s pastel tones and ultra-luxe accessories are front and center in the simple studio shots that make every item look like a must have.

Sense of Midnight

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

In most metallic themed editorials the reflective shades are depicted as bold and bright, bursting off the page but Sean and Seng (Management + Artists) offer up a fresh take on the seasons shimmering pieces in the pages Vogue Japan. Focusing on the subtle glimmer of fabric as viewed beneath moonlight, the duo along with stylist Sissy Vian (Management + Artists) capture decadent looks from Dior, Proenza Schouler, Gucci and Haider Ackermann beneath the pale moonlight in a rowboat set adrift in murky waters. Karmen Pedaru plays the role of siren admirably, wearing each look with ease even as a serpent coils around her body.

Women on Top

March 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Who can resist the allure of a magazine dedicated to dynamic, intelligent and take charge women! David Vivirido and Francesco Sourigues, the forces behind Hercules Magazine unveil their vision for women with Vamp Magazine, a tour de force take on fashion dedicated to those who are unafraid to speak their minds and express themselves via the best in power-dressing. The cover tagline “Being the woman you’ve always wanted to be” offers a compelling call to action – it isn’t enough to just wear pretty clothes, a girl has got to take on the world with gusto. The founders offered a mission statement of sorts to Business of Fashion and described the glossy’s ideal reader in no uncertain terms, “Vamp is for women who want to get ahead, stamp their foot and make a statement.”

We love the sound of that and the look of the 6 incredible new covers, which feature an impressive lineup of modeling fixtures. Each cover star is an impressive woman with personality to spare, from industry standard bearers like Carolyn Murphy and Liya Kebede, multi-hyphenate Rosie Huntington Whiteley, campaign queen Karmen Pedaru and in demand it-girls Andreea Diaconu and Emily DiDonato.

Sparkle

November 26th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Karmen Pedaru shines in the pages of Vogue Turkey in a stylized shoot from Cuneyt Akeroglu. The December issue kicks the holiday cheer off early with a glittering feature styled by Konca Aykan. Sporting bleached brows and crimson lips created by Lisa Eldridge, Karmen is a glamorous and at times otherworldly muse. In contrast to the sleek cover and high gloss editorial, the simple black and white shots accompanying Pedaru’s interview offer another take on one of fashion’s most wanted beauties.

Hot N’ Steamy

July 22nd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

As the heatwave sweeps throughout the city Greg Kadel perfectly encapsulates the scorching hot days of summer with a sensual story in the latest Vogue Espana. Most people would wilt beneath the heat and humidity, but Karmen Pedaru maintains her aloofly sexy persona even when clad in F/W’s decorative furs fresh off the runway. The eclectic mix of luxury fashions and barely there bikinis selected by Havana Laffitte adds a touch of carnality to even the most demure catwalk pieces. Celine’s plaid laundry bag inspired prints and Burberry’s glossy boleros take on a whole new aura thanks to Laffitte’s styling.

Consistently Kors

July 17th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

With the recent release of the Michael Kors F/W 13 campaign, other than stating the obvious of ‘stylish’ and ‘glamorous’, the best word to describe the campaign is ‘consistent’ — and we mean consistent in the best way. Michael Kors’ leading man and lady, Simon Nessman and Karmen Pedaru, are 2 of the main reasons for the fabulous consistency in Kors’ campaigns. The jet-setting duo is flawless in the latest, shot by none other than Mario Testino, his 10th year shooting for the designer.

Take a look at the new F/W 13 campaign below, followed by some of our favorites from the designer:
