Little Monsters

February 14th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

If you break from your busy fashion week schedule to take a look at one editorial, it ought to be Love Magazines imaginative and raw Tim Walker story, ‘The Origin of Monsters’ featuring Kristen McMenamy. Arachnophobes might want to skip this one, but everyone else can enjoy the spooky mix of oversized insects and a host of prime pieces with unusual origins chosen by Katie Grand. There is some vintage Dior couture (you may remember the golden armor from 06) a couple of chain mail headdresses from the Royal National Theater and of course the edgy editorial prerequisite, Alexander McQueen. It might be too early to start picking 2012’s best stories, but Kristen as an otherworldly, monster slayer certainly qualifies as a standout.

Guccissima

August 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

The Gucci look could never be called minimalist but in Love Magazine‘s latest issue, a pared down Natalia Vodianova makes the line’s ostentatious wares look downright austere. The beautiful and simple shots by Alasdair McLellan capture Natalia’s beauty and Katie Grand‘s impeccable styling brings out the best of Gucci’s archival pieces.

Naomi! Liu! Sean O! and more….Tao Okamoto’s Save Japan event is finally here. See items donated by the legendary Naomi Campbell, top models Jenny Shimizu, Heidi Mount, Liu Wen, Sean O’Pry and industry figures like François Nars, Cecilia Dean, Marie Chaix, Phillip Lim, Catherine Malandrino, Thakoon, Pamela Love and many more to raise money for the disaster in Japan. Though the location is called Saturday, the event is actually on Sunday, the 29th. Though we’re dying to see all the fashion items donated by such an eclectic and fabulous crowd, even better may be the chance to see some of these faces on Sunday pitching in for such a great cause. See you Sunday!

The awesome Sally Lyndley talks styling with Katie Grand on Fashionista. Also make sure you check out Katie’s new website, KatieGrand.com.

Carine Roitfeld, the “editrix/dominatrix” talks about her resemblance to Iggy Pop. Love it.

The Imagist has images of Ellen von Unwerth shot by the iconic Guy Bourdin, before she became a top photographer.

Lady Gaga and Karl Lagerfeld‘s t-shirts are our favorites in the Uniqlo t-shirt benefiting the Japanese Red Cross, available next month. Which is yours?

We love Mcqueen as much as the next person but it’s still fascinating to read about his dark side.

Are you Twitter? You’re not? Maybe that’s better, says the NYTimes. Meanwhile the entire MDC crew is: @themoskovic, @hisssquad, @ninjasze, @sansartifice, @fsorrenti, @jonathanshia.

A Leg Up!

August 25th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The feminine 50s trend strikes again, this time in the pages of Vogue Nippon with a cheeky editorial by Sølve Sundsbø. In the story Ana Beatriz Barros and Alessandra Ambrosio fall head over heels for luxurious ensembles by Vuitton and Cacherel, all chosen by superstylist Katie Grand. While Ale and Ana look fit for an episode of Mad Men, Solve adds in a touch of whimsy by shooting the girls upside down and lounging like true retro pinups – the look is sexy, coy and just a little demure.
