Just One Look – YSL

January 18th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Every year there are pieces that become repeat offenders: out of the hundreds of looks presented each season a few manage to monopolize editorial space and show up in just about every magazine. When you see the same piece in different images the importance of styling, hair & makeup really becomes evident – one wrong element and the clothes can look unappealing.

Lately we’ve been noticing a very chic Yves Saint Laurent coat popping up in editorial after editorial, looking different in each picture.  Made of “pale green lace jacquard with black cornelly embroideries” the coat was look one during the spring / summer show and looked pretty fetching on Kasia Struss. In the magazines the same look takes on a variety of guises: in the pages of Vogue Italia it turns into a harlequin costume for Querelle Jansen, while Harper’s Bazaar uses it as a retro topper for a blonde Bette FrankeW Magazine focuses on the graphic print with a black and white shot and some serious eye makeup on Cara Delevingne, while Elle goes in a flamboyant direction placing it on top of a red satin bra and a knit skirt from Chloe.

Deja Vu

May 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Isabeli Fontana.
Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Vogue Paris.

Is it just us or do Mert & Marcus have a little Meisel crush? Remember their recreation of Meisel’s Kristen McMenamy Vogue Italia cover? This time around they cast Isabeli Fontana as a 21st century version of Linda Evangelista by Meisel on the cover of VP. We’re beginning to see a pattern, though Meisel isn’t the only photographer M&M have paid tribute to. Their series of covers for LOVE draws direct inspiration from the work of Helmut Newton.

Sister, Sister

July 22nd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

KT Auleta takes Ann and Kirby Kenny, in a luxe 70s direction for Vogue Russia. Both Ann and Kirby look perfect in the soft, beige and taupe ensembles chosen by Brian Molloy. The ubercool twins have done editorials together before (check out their great The Shining inspired edit in Interview) but this story nails the feminine style of designers like Hannah MacGibbon and Pheobe Philo – this shoot almost looks like it could be a Chloe campaign!

Vintage Finds

May 24th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Were used to seeing Ranya Mordanova looking edgy in jet black Givenchy, so it is nice every now and then to get a change of pace; KT Auleta shows the retro side of Ranya in the latest Vogue Russia. Dressed in cat eye glasses and full skirts, Ranya looks sweet and lovely. Simon Robins creates the perfect vintage inspired looks, using pieces from Celine and Vuitton and Ranya brings them to life with her signature dramatic flair.
