Independent Spirit

November 4th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

With its irreverent sensibility and lack of pretension, HUSK Magazine stands out as one of the best indie publications on the scene. The fall issue (out now) focuses on the theme of new contexts. Unlike other mags for whom that idea is little more than a soundbyte, HUSK explores the scene’s latest developments with wit and candor. Inside you’ll find a wealth of striking photography from names you ought to write down and several spot on articles about everything from Raf Simons and Dries Van Noten, to an informed interview with artist François Halard.

Field of Dreams

June 13th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

After a dearth of black and white, minimal editorials isn’t it nice to see a little color? Viviane Sassen‘s vibrant story for Dazed & Confused is anything but subdued; everything from the Lisse’s gorgeous tulip fields to Katie Shillingford‘s styling bursts off the page. We’re given a feast of pattern, texture and graceful movements courtesy of Lisanne de Jong; whose ballerina poses breathe life into wild garments from Pam Hogg, Vivienne Westwood and Sonia Rykiel.

Hard Rain

August 12th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Karen Langley can turn out a great fashion story, even when the clothes are drenched in water. Langley uses her styling skill in the latest Dazed and Confused in Will Davidson‘s water logged tribute to fall’s finery. The story is as gritty as we’ve come to expect from Dazed, but the top notch casting of Lisanne de Jong, Lauren Brown, Ali Carr, Emily Wake and Lia Serge, all sporting hair looks by Shin Arima adds another layer of enjoyment.

Bits & Bytes: Super Yasmin

October 2nd, 2009 |Posted by Betty

20

Yasmin LeBon. Ph: Philip Riches for L’Officiel Netherlands, courtesy of Elite New York.

I’m going to date myself a little now by saying that Yasmin was one of my favorite 80’s supermodels. Her incredible Vogue and Elle covers (jumping! on the beach!) were some of my most remembered visuals of that long gone era. It’s of course utterly thrilling to see her comeback, with her recent work with Vogue Paris, American Vogue, i-D and Wonderland. Here’s to one of the originals!

—————————————————————————————-

Karla Otto, PR powerhouse, Karla Otto sexy Gentlewoman?

Anja Rubik is a supermodel. And an avid yoga practitioner. Sign us up right now to get those legs

Here are more pics of the AMFAR event in Milan, including Giovanna Battaglia and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, called “fashion royalty”.

For those who know Chris Rock‘s “Clear Heels” diatribe, you’ll find The Cut’s essay on Milan’s shoe of the season, pretty funny.

Aspiring photographers, get your work published in W, how COOL!

Balenciaga’s casting by Ashley Brokaw elicited some nice surprises for the week: Miranda Kerr (click here to see the 2 sides of Ms. Kerr, the sexy VS Angel and the transformation on the runway), Rasa Zukauskaite, Jenny Sinkaberg with IMG, former feed face Marlena Szoka, new faces Jacquelyn Jablonski, Mirte Maas, Patricia van der Vliet, Lisanne de Jong, Gwen Loos (Marilyn).

Balmain had Daria Werbowy in her only show (opening and closing).

Check out Cathy Horyn‘s conversation with Nicolas Ghesquiere backstage; listen to his wonderful French tinged English and of course take a look at his incredible collection: why Paris is the premier reasons they will always rule Fashion Week.

As for Rick Owens (which the Imagist loved!) he cast 4 of our favorite (and totally underrated) black models: Georgie Badiel, Kinee Diouf, Aminata Niaria and Rose Cordero.

Speaking of Miranda Kerr, she’s launching her own skincare line.

Stylist Melanie Ward‘s first collection, Blouson Noir (Black Shirt), sounds amazing.

Bad for your wallet, great for your closet. Style.com offers “Shop the looks”.

Style.com sits down with Gareth Pugh.

V Man and Showstudio are on the last legs of their male model search.

Speaking of V, how much do we love how they showcase the transformation of a fresh new Ford face, Sydney Roper. See the before and after!

Alexandre de Betak is quite a genius but now he’s officially approved by the Times who calls him “The Fellini of Fashion”.

Here’s the info for the Victoria’s Secret open casting this weekend.

Speaking of shopping: Isabel Marant, a favorite designer of the supermodels, will be opening in New York’s Soho. Isaac Mizrahi will be opening his first “shop” because of his psychic!

If you’re in Paris, go to the outdoor Vogue cover show, like Olivier Zahm did. You won’t be anywhere as fabulous as he, but you can pretend!

If you love the Rick Owens show, click here to see more dramatic black and white runway shots from Mr Purple himself.

“Every once in a while I’d feed one until it let me pet it, but it usually just ended up being more trouble than it was worth.” Um, not sure what to think about this, Rick Owens, but we still love your collection.

Fashion at the Vogue Party in Paris, celebrating 90 Years of Vogue Covers. See Mario Testino, Anja Rubik, Lara Stone and La Wintour looking tres, tres chic .

How cool are Greg Kessler‘s Model Morphosis for NY Times’ The Moment? See Karolin Wolter at Gareth Pugh.

Dutch Masters

September 29th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Modeling moves in cycles and every few seasons it seems as though there is another set of great girls hailing from a new place. This season is all about stunning Dutch girls and it is easy to see why. Who better to embody the classicism and straightforward prettiness that defines the current look than the beauties of the Netherlands? As established Dutch models like Lara Stone and Ymre Stiekema lead the pack a host of new faces have been steadily gaining prominence these past few seasons, here is a crash course in the Dutch faces to watch.

pat

Patricia van der Vliet : With a Prada exclusive and a super selective New York season under her belt, Patricia is definitely a face to watch for Paris. Wouldn’t her perfect proportions and cool beauty look just right at Lanvin or YSL?

mirte

Mirte Maas : The stunning Mirte has a slot on the Top 10 Newcomers list and has made appearances at Prada, Calvin Klein and every other runway worth talking about. Add in the early editorial buzz and you’ve got a superstar in the making.

bregje

Bregje Heinen : As one of the MVPs of Milan, Bregje is poised to repeat her success in Paris. Though she’s got enviable proportions and a walk that just wont quit, special attention must be payed to that undeniably beautiful face. Pillow lips, an icy blue stare and the kind of sensuality that makes beauty contract dreams come true.

nicola

Nicola Haffmans : With her distinctive feline look and womanly allure, Nicola was among the stars of London Fashion week. Luella, Christopher Kane, Pringle – if there was a hip London runway she was on it. The sleek edge that blew London away will definitely impress Paris.

lisanne1

Lisanne de Jong : Alexander Wang enthusiast and Prada exclusive, Lisanne is a former Model of the Week. Her natural beauty and engaging personality make her stand out from the pack of lanky blondes. Paris should provide nothing but excitement as we can easily envision Lisanne on the most directional runways.

nimue

Nimue Smit : Though she’s only been in the game for a few seasons the enchanting Nimue is already a star in her own right. Prada campaign? Check. Vogue Italia? Check. Another flawless season? Naturally.

annad

Anna de Rijk : Anna has been on a roll since her Prada exclusive last season. With strong editorial work and impeccable seasons in each and every market there is really no stopping this regal classic beauty.

nicole

Nicole Hofman : Quality is better than quantity, with a debut at Burberry that set tongues wagging Nicole Hofman placed herself on the fast track for success. After showing up at Prada looking lovely this very fresh face is all but gauranteed to have an interesting Paris season. Expect to see her on only the most exclusive runways.

We adore Elite New York‘s Lisanne (and former MOTW) with her rocking Alexander Wang boots. Just the right amount of sexy and tough for fall.
