Step Into Spring

December 21st, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Spring’s fresh campaigns keep coming in – take a look at the latest and tell us which are your favorites!

Mariacarla Boscono for Yves Saint Laurent by David Sims

Sporting streamlined eyebrows by Diane Kendal and short bangs Guido Palau, Mariacarla looks strong and sexy in David Sims’ campaign for the mega-brand. After over a decade of campaigns helmed by either Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin or Juergen Teller Sims’ sleek style feels fresh.

Gisele Bundchen for Givenchy by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

Life’s a beach for the Givenchy girl and Tisci’s surf & scuba inspired collection shines on the backs of Gisele Bundchen & brand muse Mariacarla Boscono. Posing alongside boogie boards in M&M’s subdued shots, the duo looks chic albeit slightly grim. After last season’s aggressive ads this is an interesting change of pace.

Kasia Struss for Moschino by Juergen Teller

The Moschino travel diary continues; this season the brand jets to Rome to create some classic Italian ambiance complete with vintage Fiats circling Kasia Struss and the Colosseum as a backdrop. Viva Moschino!

Raquel Zimmermann for Nina Ricci by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin

The Nina Ricci sensibility has always been about feminine & ethereal designs. Inez & Vinoodh’s campaign images capture that ideal with a shot of Raquel Zimmermann rushing across the hall in a Peter Copping designed gown fit for a princess.

Cover to Cover : November

October 17th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

November provides us with an unusually high supply of beautiful covers featuring our favorite girls, but which one is the best of the bunch? Tell us your thoughts on this month’s lineup of covers.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley by Alexi Lubomirski on Vogue Germany
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and Rosie never fails to look sexy, but it would have been nice to see her in some couture.

Mariacarla Boscono on Vogue Korea
As one of the girls who can do no wrong, Mariacarla never fails to excite, but we’re not sure if this icy image illustrates the ‘Woman Power’ headline.

Naomi Campbell by Ronald Dick on Lurve Magazine
The combo of Gareth Pugh and no-eyebrows is a striking look on the iconic Ms. Campbell.

Bambi Northwood Blyth by JM Ferrater METAL Magazine
The edgy Spanish must read gives us an elegant and delicately beautiful image of Bambi at her best.

Edita Vilkeviciute by Peter Lindbergh on Vogue China
Edita, Lindbergh and loads of Vuitton, what’s not to love?

Miranda Kerr by Jillian Davison on Harper’s Bazaar Australia
Mrs. Bloom in a curve conscious Mary Katrantzou ensemble that grabs your attention.

Lara Stone by Mario Sorrenti on Vogue Japan
At this point everyone is probably tired of seeing that Givenchy collection on magazine covers, but Lara looks fresh nonetheless.

Alina Baikova by Nicole Bentley on Vogue Australia
It is always summer somewhere and Aussie Vogue rings in the season with Alina in stripes and brights.

Lindsey Wixson by Phil Poynter on W Korea
Dramatic posing and an outlandish outfit bring this image to life – bonus points to anyone who can ID the ensemble!

Jac Jagaciak by Nino Munoz on Numero Tokyo
Jac never fails to look sweet, though it would have been lovely to see a smile on this ‘Gentle-lady’ themed cover.

Behind the Campaign : Givenchy

July 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Campaign season is in full swing and while everyone loves the finished products – and the continuous stream of database updates on the subject, it is always nice to see the process that goes into each ad. We’d previously posted a glimpse at Givenchy‘s growling and howling F/W extravaganza, but take a look at the shoot itself. Veteran models Kristen McMenamy, Naomi Campbell and Mariacarla Boscono join relative newcomers Jonathan Marquez and Rob Evans in the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott helmed images and the making of images add another layer of enjoyment.

Another day, another round of high profile campaigns. Miu Miu delights with a mirrored image of Kasia Struss by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, while Ferragamo goes for the classic appeal of Clement Chabernaud and Daria Werbowy. Fendi continues its winning formula from the past few seasons with Anja Rubik once again appearing in an picture by Karl Lagerfeld. Prada S/S takes the striped and marcel waved look from the collection and translates it into stylized ads shot by Steven Meisel; Kinga Rajzak and Zuzanna Bijoch, shine in the first images released.

Spring Awakening

December 15th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

S/S Campaigns are trickling in and from the looks of it we can expect an exciting and inventive season of fresh ads. Two of our favorites to debut are from houses who consistently provide great imagery.

Juergen Teller creates a colorful romp for Marc Jacobs’ ads, featuring Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Masha Kirsanova. Wearing straw hats and bright 70s inspired looks from the collection, the duo looks reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver.

Givenchy’s spring ads by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott are minimal and stark – in contrast to last season’s bright poppy colors. The campaign featuring Daphne Groeneveld, albino male model Stephen Thompson, Iris Strubegger and of course, Mariacarla Boscono.

More Is More

October 20th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

After seasons of perfecting minimalism, it seems fashion’s foremost stylists have taken an interest in the exact opposite. Fall’s fashion glossies are filled with layered looks that explode off the page with print, pattern and texture. There is nothing subtle about a Lanvin fur worn over lace tights, or the melange of sequins and colors, but you can’t deny that the combinations are eye-catching. Do you like the maximalist look or do you prefer your fashions a bit more subdued? Let us know in the comments.
