Campaign Trail

January 3rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Who doesn’t love a good campaign? Spring ads keep coming in and this season’s take on brand imagery is looking quite nice. Tom Ford offers up a 70s inspired treat featuring Abbey Lee Kershaw wearing his signature oversized shades and pieces from his heavily hyped collection. Meanwhile, Roberto Cavalli gives us Laetitia Casta and Malgosia Bela looking stunning in scales and fringe; the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott images are light and girly. Vera Wang’s vision for spring includes the radiant Shu Pei, whose unique beauty and poise in front of the camera work perfectly with Wang’s romantic aesthetic.

Seasonal Reboots

December 21st, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Two of fashion’s biggest brands refresh their images with crisp new ad campaigns that offer up fresh takes on their aesthetics. Steven Meisel shoots Gisele Bundchen for Balenciaga and strips the supermodel of her patented sex appeal for a sporty and boyish campaign that captures the pared down look of the collection itself. Yuri Pleskun joins La Bundchen on the romp, sporting layers of face paint by Pat McGrath

Beige is the signature color of Hannah MacGibbon’s Chloe, so it makes sense that David Sims‘ campaign is almost entirely ecru. Malgosia Bela and Iselin Steiro look casually chic in the line’s classic silhouettes and clean lines.

Statuesque

June 2nd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Cedric Buchet takes the models as statues idea one step further, pitting Malgosia Bela against a wealth of classical sculpture for Vogue Nippon. The editorial combines everything we love; good photography, a top notch model and some incredible styling courtesy of George Cortina, the dramatic feel of the editorial is only heightened by the use of elegant gowns from Valentino and Givenchy. However, the stand out of the story has to be the acid yellow goddess gown from Pucci, a striking piece made even more interesting by Malgosia’s captivating pose.

Malgosia Moves

April 26th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Malgosia Bela shakes it for Greg Kadel in the latest Numero. Looking as refined as ever Malgosia wears a series of muted ensembles; from the season’s signature camel coat, to a luxe paisley dress, Malgosia makes it all look easy – you can really see why she’s been a favorite of photographers and designers for over a decade. Kadels simple portraits capture Malgosia’s allure perfectly, especially in those gorgeous black and white images.

Tim’s World

September 16th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The macabre world created by director Tim Burton has always been a source of fashion inspiration – how many goth themed editorials have you seen that look like something straight out of A Nightmare Before Christmas – so its no surprise that on the eve of his retrospective at MOMA Bazaar pays tribute to his aesthetic with a fun filled editorial. Tim Walker shoots Malgosia Bela, Sophie Srej and Evelina Mambetova (talk about pitch perfect casting) alongside the director for the latest issue. Wearing fanciful creations from the likes of McQueen, Nina Ricci and Yamamoto the girls look ready for cameos in any of Burton’s films.
