Deja Vu : Food for Thought

April 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Richard Burbridge‘s latest over the top story for New York Times Magazine celebrates the season’s candy colored dresses & bold fruit prints, with a festive food meets fashion series of images. The idea is simple – take the plum prints on a Dolce & Gabbana dress and serve them with a side of fruit salad for good measure – but the magic is all in the execution. Robbie Spencer‘s styling on this story is nothing short of amazing – though we do wonder if he was the one picking up the cart at Whole Foods in addition to selecting the stellar designer looks. Hanne Gaby Odiele and Julia Nobis bring the concept to life with animated posing and the occasional taste of sweetness.

The story got us thinking about all the other time’s we’ve seen fashion and food collide. Though we prefer our meals on a plate something has to be said for the unexpected art that comes about when you re-imagine what every day items can do. Have a trip down memory lane and see some of our  favorite food meets fashion combos.

There is a Dolce & Gabbana dress hiding beneath all that produce.

Even if you didn’t notice the lobsters, this would be an epic shot.

Viktor & Rolf‘s decadent designs get coated in candy – very fitting!

Artist Sung Yeon Ju‘s Wearable Foods series (2009-2010) featured clothing crafted out of materials like banana peels and slices of eggplant.

2010 Kirsi Pyrhonen wore lettuce as a fashion statement in images by Magnus Unnar for the Barneys holiday catalog.

Who can forget that meat dresses Lady Gaga wore on the red carpet & the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan in 2010 – also designed by Sung Yeon Ju!

Cintia Dicker delights in a dress full of M&Ms in Ryan Yoon‘s shoot for Virgine Magazine – 2010

And now for something you can actually put in your mouth. How about some Chanel & Christian Louboutin cupcakes? Prop stylist Lisa Edsalv and photographer Therese Aldgard collaborated on these and we’re petitioning Aaron de MeyKarl Lagerfeld to get them in stores.

Bits & Bytes: The Face

March 19th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

To go along with our Kate Moss post on her enduring beauty, is the editorial on Sean O’Pry by David Sims. His perfect face is near legendary at this point which is perfect for the Ralph Lauren American heroes story boldly styled by Beat Bolliger. (pic courtesy of VNY, more pics see here)
——————————————————————————-
Funny. Fashion Week Daily talks about fashion people who don’t “own” their own name.

Photographer Magnus Unnar talks to Interview Magazine

Karl Lagerfeld is alternately supremely witty/insightful and so out of touch in this Vice interview. That’s what makes him Kaiser Karl and why we’re always fascinated. You’ll also see how handsome he was (with a still shot of Karl in an Andy Warhol flick).

Swide interviews Maurilio Carnino for MTC Casting about the casting business. He talks about that infamous Donna Karan show where the lights fell on the audienc. We adore his new site for real people, A Streetcat named Desire.

The gorgeous Teresa Lourenco who we ran into last night, looks amazing as a pregnant mommy.

Remember the D&G supermodel fragrance ad with Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Tyson Ballou, etc? The Brazilian face in that ad Fernando Fernandes got into a tragic car crash and is paralyzed from the waist down. Look what he’s doing now.

Here’s a V Magazine update:
3 incredible videos of everyone’s favorite Raquel Zimmerman by Mario Sorrenti, Carolyn Murphy and gorgeous boy models by Sebastian Faena and Kirsten Dunst looking like an old time movie star by Mario Testino. Below the 2 V Man/Ford Models winners. Can’t wait to see the covers shot by Terry Richardson.
