Prada S/S takes the striped and marcel waved look from the collection and translates it into stylized ads shot by Steven Meisel; Kinga Rajzak and Zuzanna Bijoch, shine in the first images released.

The Edge

September 23rd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Josh Olins takes Karolina Kurkova back to her avant-garde roots in i-D‘s new issue, shooting her in gritty black and white portraits styled expertly by Alastair McKimm. Karolina’s typically glamorous presence is transformed in this story that takes menswear inspired looks and turns them on their heads with a dash of ingenuity; Karolina in stripped down Stella McCartney and Calvin equals perfection.

Women On Top

June 28th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The new issue of V lands on newsstands July 8th and the sexy body theme couldn’t be more evident once you look at Willy Vanderperre and Olivier Rizzo‘s ‘A Woman In Full’ editorial. Using shapely retro styling and some of the industry’s loveliest girls, Willy and Olivier turn the clock back, to the days of the hourglass figure; Karolina Kurkova, Jacquelyn Jablonski and Miranda Kerr have never looked better and the story is completely in line with fashion’s current curve obsession.

W gives us an early taste of fall with Craig McDean‘s chic portfolio of the season’s must have looks. Using a cast of IMG beauties and a simple peach backdrop, McDean highlights just about every piece we loved from the F/W collections. Once again Alex White‘s styling looks phenomenal and each girl wears an ensemble that speaks to her personality; could anyone look better in that stunning Haakan dress than Karolina, who better to show off Rodarte’s ethereal spirt than Liya?

Met Mavens

May 4th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The red carpet of the Met’s Costume Institute Gala is always a scene for fashion moments and mishaps, the attendees either look incredible or completely regrettable but no matter what the outfits are memorable. This year was no exception with scores of actors, models and fashionistas turning up in their sartorial best, but who won the evening when it came to style? Did Chanel Iman’s Kors jumpsuit look refreshingly modern, or overly glittery? Was Doutzen’s Zac Posen a little too prom queen for you, or was the look perfectly sweet? Was Sasha’s beige Marni the bomb or a total bust? Tell us who you think looked the best, or the worst and take a look at the roundup of chic model looks.

Pictures like these are why we are in love with Jak & Jil.

____________________________________________

Andres Velencoso Segura is very tall and Kylie Minogue is so very short but they are a totally cute couple.

Uh, hello, young aspiring actors and models… Read about Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe and his interview with an 11 year old reporter and take lessons on being a true star in our book: being classy and kind.

Of the big American fashion mags, it looks like the only model cover will be Kate Moss for W Magazine and former model Charlize Theron for American Vogue. Sad. Click here for the other blondes.

Supermodel baby bump watch… first Heidi Klum, then Adriana Lima, possibly Gisele Bundchen and now Karolina Kurkova. There is something in the VS water.

Tragic news… Dash Snow, artist and fashion world denizen passes away this week. Our hearts go out to his family and especially his young daughter.

For our young feminist models, there’s a new teen blog out there!

In big picture news, iconic designer Issey Miyake talks for the first time of surviving the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Why now? He was inspired by Obama’s speech in Prague.

They’re already talking about Spring/Summer 2010 campaigns! Pringle! Tilda Swinton! Ryan McGinley! Click here to read more.

Brana Wolf beautifully styles the latest looks in Bazaar and makes it totally wearable.

Ponyryder hits another out of the ballpark, this time with a chat with top model Toni Garrn.
