La Lara

March 10th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

You can’t keep a good woman down! On the heels of her March Vogue Paris cover Lara Stone is suddenly everywhere with a series of chic magazine appearances and the first of her advertisements for mega-brand L’Oreal.


Antidote Magazine Ph. Cuneyt Akeroglu

The first cover of Antidote’s Romance issue features a stripped down portrait of Lara by Cuneyt Akeroglu. Sporting a dusting of tiny paper flowers and a powerful gaze, Lara captivates in this simple yet refined image. Stay tuned for more as Antidote is unveiling one cover per day on their website, Magazine Antidote

L’Oreal Paris Ph. Kenneth Willardt (Exposure NY)

Beauty contracts a big business and Lara brings a touch of haute grandeur to L’Oreal’s spring advertising, joining the likes of Doutzen and Liya Kebede in Kenneth Willardt (Exposure NY)’s flawless beauty photographs. Adding a swipe of the latest lipgloss might not transform you into a mini-Lara but Willardt’s sleek ads are a compelling tribute to the brand’s ‘because you’re worth it’ tagline.

Modern Matter | Ph. Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner)

Modern Matters merges art and fashion into a singularly chic edition twice a year and the latest features an Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) shot of Lara against timeless Piet Mondrian artwork in the De Stijl style.

The Return of Lara Stone

February 12th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

March issues are all about statements of power, and Vogue Paris is never one to be outdone. Marking the return of Industry Icon Lara Stone on the magazine’s March 2014 cover, Emmanuelle Alts coveted glossy is sure to be a standout on newsstands this spring. Not even a year after giving birth to son Alfred last May, Lara is back with work that’s firing on all cylinders. Following her part in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott’s  “Pillow Tweets” for W‘s March issue, the new mommy has collaborated once again with the photo duo for Vogue Paris. The Dutch beauty’s latest cover—her ninth Vogue Paris so far—is a bold addition to the storied history between the magazine and its go-to top model. This “Femme Fatale” will be impossible to miss once the issue hits newsstands February 21.

They don’t call them the jetset for nothing; fashion’s darlings have been making their way around the globe on exotic vacations this month.

A Brief History of Actors & Models

May 11th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

It is a proven fact that Hollywood actors cannot resist models – Leonardo Dicaprio we’re looking at you – so it is no surprise that magazines frequently pair actors & models together in covers and in editorials. We’re not sure why magazines always go for the actor + models combo instead of say actresses and male models (c’mon someone get Scarlett Johansson and Sean O’Pry  together already) but it is a proven formula that can produce beautiful results.

Or incredibly awkward and somewhat confusing results. Lets take a look back at some of our favorite model meets actor moments – the good, the bad and the just plain weird.

2012: W Magazine  : Tom Cruise + Abbey Lee Kershaw & Edita Vilkeviciute by Mario Sorrenti

W Magazine knows how to push all the right buttons don’t they? What better way to promote the blissfully cheesy 80s jukebox musical Rock of Ages than to put its star on the cover looking like a latter day Bret Michaels? Edita Vilkeviciute and Abbey Lee Kershaw are bringing the heat, but we can’t help but feel that Cruise looks more than a little uncomfortable. Perhaps this is simply his version of bored rock star blasé, but he manages to make standing between two of the world’s most beautiful girls look like a chore; to be honest he had more chemistry with Jeremy Renner in MI:4.

2012: Vogue Espana Clive Owen & Toni Garrn by Alexi Lubomirski

Love Toni, Love Clive. Love the city of Paris. Still he looks like her dad in this. Sorry. Unless they were going for the whole “cool dad takes his glamazon daughter to France thing”, if so then it totally works.

2012: American Vogue - Michael Fassbender and Natalia Vodianova by Craig McDean

Let’s be honest they make the ultimate austere couple.

2012: American Vogue - Eddie Redmayne & Karlie Kloss by Mario Testino

Young love minus the pimples.

2011: American Vogue – Jeremy Irvine & Arizona Muse by David Sims

Ok ok. This is a blatant promo for the film War Horse, but hey it made for an amazing editorial, atmospheric, rich and a showcase for some spectacular fashion.

2010 American Vogue - Ewan McGregor & Natalia Vodianova by Peter Lindbergh

Are you starting to see how much American Vogue likes this concept?

2009: American Vogue - Morgan Freeman & Lara Stone by Bruce Weber

Lara Stone and Morgan Freeman taking a walk around New Orleans, oh to have been a fly on the wall for this shoot…

2008: American Vogue - Jon Hamm & Catherine McNeil by Mario Testino

Let Don Draper show you how it’s done. McNeil and Hamm had a great rapport in all their images, in his Vogue profile he describes her as, “adorable and sweet and so much younger than me that it is terrifying.” Age concerns aside the Testino shoot struck the right balance between glamourous fashion fantasy and celebrity profile.

2006: Vanity Fair - George Clooney & Gemma Ward by Norman Jean Roy

The old Hollywood director and his brand new muse – is it too early to label an editorial a modern classic?

2006: American Vogue – Eric Bana & Gisele Bundchen by Mario Testino

Gisele gets roped into this sort of thing a lot…

2005: American Vogue - Josh Hartnett & Gemma Ward

Can you tell that this gorgeous duo started dating after this was shot?

2004: American Vogue Daria Werbowy and Jake Gyllenhaal

Going out on a limb and saying that Jake had the most fun on this shoot.

1992: Kyle Maclachlan & Linda Evangelista for Barneys

In the years prior to the François-Henri Pinault scandal, Linda dated Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan and found time to appear with him in ads for Barneys and a Meisel Vogue story. Unfortunately the couple that poses together doesn’t always stay together and they broke things off in the mid-90s.

1992: Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford by Herb Ritts

Does it get better than this? The answer is no it doesn’t. It does not get any better, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are not going to give you this kind of movie star & model chicness, bask in the glory of this cover.

And none for Leo.

Beauty Bytes: Josie’s Model Citizens & Swarovski’s Aura

April 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Arguably the most beautiful & exciting thing to come our way this week was the new Swarovski scent, AURA. Ultra-sleek packaging aside (the bottle was designed by Gwenaël Nicolas, man behind some of the world’s architectural masterpieces) the scent completely captures everything we love about Swarovski. A crystal is the perfect final touch, that extra bit of shimmer that makes an ensemble special – Aura is that in a fragrance. The delicate blend of amber, benzoin & white musk sparkles on the skin and with a brand new Aura gloss compact it sparkles on the lips too.

We love when models do something special for a charitable cause, so naturally we’re in love with model turned beauty mogul Josie Maran‘s latest project. For the ‘Model Citizen’ campaign Josie teams up with Petra Nemcova and Angela Lindvall to create limited edition bottles of her line’s famous Argan oil, with bottles designed by each girl & proceeds going to the charities close to the girl’s hearts – Happy Hearts fund, Women for Women & Healthy Child / Healthy World all benefit.

Take a look inside Lara Stone‘s makeup bag and what will you find – apparently a whole lot of Calvin Klein & Sisley! Speaking of Calvin, take a look at our first impressions of the new ck one color collection.

Speculation on who Dior’s newly minted designer, Raf Simons will put on makeup duty is rising. British Vogue takes a look back at Pat McGrath‘s impressive Dior beauty creations during the time of John Galliano, while Style.com suggests Raf might be leaning towards his longtime cosmetic collaborator Peter Philips.
