Rare is the brand that people get excited about in terms of fashion, imagery AND casting. Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci is one of those and for F/W 10, WWD gives us a preview of the campaign with one exciting and unexpected face. Lea T, a Brazilian transsexual who is his former assistant and fit model joins longtime Tisci favorites Mariacarla Boscono and Simon Nessman. Returning face Jonathan Marquez appears as well, with a pink haired Malgosia Bela and Catherine McNeil adding supermodel vavoom. Fresh faces Joan Smalls, Ming Xi , Paolo Roldan and Willy Cartier appear in their first major campaign which was styled by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

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.

The Elite

March 23rd, 2009 |Posted by Betty

This in from the City of Lights. Though fashion week may be over, Elite Paris continues to enjoy a dazzling season. The current issue of Vogue Paris spotlights a triple feature of their high profile stars, including Eniko Mihalik in a Mario Sorrenti shoot highlighting her chameleon abilities, Malgosia Bela in a lovely Inez and Vinoodh portfolio of her and her son (click here) and current It girl Ymre Stiekema exquisitely photographed in black and white by Patrick Demarchelier (click here). The delightful surprise? Former Gucci girl, Dewi Driegen still displaying the exuberance and allure that attracted Tom Ford to the 3/4 Dutch, 1/4 Indonesian beauty.

Cinema Verite

December 11th, 2008 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion and film are intrinsically linked and no one knows this better than the dream team of Peter Lindbergh and Malgosia Bela. In addition to being an iconic photographer Lindbergh is also an accomplished director and when Malgosia isn’t appearing in edits and campaigns she can be found acting. Who better to bring a uniquely cinematic vision to Vogue Italia than these two multi-hyphenates?

Many editorials dazzle us with enticing imagery but few give viewers a fully realized story. For VI, Lindbergh draws inspiration from the saturated cinematography and gritty realism of 70s film to create a slice of life tale of a mother and son. Think of it as a pret a porter retelling of ‘Alice Doesn’t Live Here Any More’ – we’re sure Scorsese would approve.
