Calvin Klein Jeans certainly thinks not and put provocative conversations alongside their latest campaign featuring a whole gang of models. Shot by Mario Sorrenti, the, ahem, suggestive ads explore late night hookups and the conversations that got them there. Batteries not included.

Check out the images and the campaign video below.

See Inside: Let’s Panic Issue 2

July 20th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Straddling the margins between art and fashion, Issue 2 of Let’s Panic Magazine is trickling into stands in the U.S.A. now and Europe to follow.  The large format, in-your-face magazine, the project of photographer Greg Kadel, is a collection of inspired editorials, hued from the bold and experimental to the indulgent to the introspective. The thoughtful list of creators and contributors is worthy of praise – Boo George, Mario Sorrenti, Jeff Bark, Jennifer Starr, Judy Blame and Mark Lebon to name a few. On that note, Editor in Chief, Aaron Ward writes, “Of all the steps taken in the creation of an issue of Let’s Panic, the one we most enjoy is the exploratory stage, the part where meetings and conversations introduce us to new people, novel ideas and undiscovered creative twists.”

Inside the magazine, Greg Kadel photographs Jac Jagaciak for a vivid, varicolored beauty story. Shot through water that shifts the light, beauty team Fulvia Farolfi and Nicolas Jurnjack  produce gorgeous tides of blues, rouges and yellows. Editor-slash-photographer Aaron Ward abstractly shoots a model pressed against a pane of glass, to the effect of leaves pressed in a book.  Other editorials breathe life into archival images, like the cover image from Mario Sorrenti’s black-and-white, road trip portraits or casting director Jennifer Starr’s multitude of polaroids.

Siblings Pair Up for Balmain

July 17th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Balmain explores the intimacy between siblings for their latest collection for Fall/Winter 2015. This time around Mario Sorrenti captures the connections between sister and brother model duos Armando and Fernando Cabral, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Erika and Joan Smalls, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner. There’s no rivalry here with the pairs giving each other a helping hand by applying lip-liner or providing a supporting rest. The familial love brings another meaning of power and strength to the fabulous Balmain Army that Olivier Rousteing has assembled.

Join the fashion ranks below for the imagery.

Change of Guard

June 10th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

As soon as Vanity Fair Italy previewed cover images from Vogue Italia’s “China” issue the internet was abuzz over the non-Meisel round-up of photographers– confirming the whispers that the storied lensman would longer shoot every cover. For models, having a VI cover by Steven Meisel served as a badge of honor and a telltale of imminent visibility.  Steven’s famous partiality for beautiful women and inimitable eye has forecasted and launched numerous careers. So needless to say, his absences after holding the fort since 1988 is big news.

For the the “China” issue, Vogue Italia enlisted Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and Steven Klein to help carry the weight of Meisel’s absence, shooting a cast of established Chinese beauties Fei Fei Sun, Xiao Wen JuJing Wen and newer faces like Yuan Bo Chao, Fernanda Ly and Gia Tang. Each cover bears the visual thumbprint from this league of extraordinary photographers: McDean’s romantic evocations; Sorrenti’s audacious arrangements; Mert and Marcus’ high-styled narratives and Klein’s surreal interpretations. Whether or not it’s enough to fill the void, the praise-worthy selection of models by these modern masters in celebration of China certainly stands on its own.

Jackets Required

March 25th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Fashion’s preoccupation with the seventies becomes the ideé fixe for W Magazine’s new Mario Sorrenti shoot that highlights Saint Laurent muse Grace Hartzel alongside a bleached blonde Jaime Ross. Melanie Ward adopts the glamrock eclecticism of Slimane’s LA playground and the story’s creed: “Jackets required. The rest is at your discretion” means there’s no room for staid convention. On that note, Ward styles the duo into disparate, beatnik-chic playmates mixing in plenty of Saint Laurent. Aaron de Mey adds a touch of mod focusing on bold lashes and James Pecis tousles their hair to appear as unattended to as their abandoned hideout. See the full editorial out on newsstands right now.

Check out more from the April issue on wmagazine.com.

Balmaniacs

December 12th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Olivier Rousteing‘s vision for Balmain has always been about powerful, provocative women so it seems natural to see his Spring/Summer campaign filled with supermodels. Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and newcomer Crista Cober join forces to play video games and eat cheeseburgers in Mario Sorrenti‘s (Art Partner) action packed ads for Balmain. Sorrenti never fails to bring energy to his images and this time around he makes the usually elegant cast engage in a little combat. If kicking and screaming supers isn’t your idea of a good time fear not, the subtler images have the beauties duking it out via Nintendo rather than clawing each others eyes out. The art direction by Pascal Dangin adds another layer of enjoyment, with patterns and colors perfectly coordinating even as the punches are thrown.

Amazing Grace

November 12th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

With her delicate features and bright blue eyes, Grace Hartzel is one of the prettiest models to grace the pages of fashion glossies of late, but don’t let the doll-like beauty fool you Grace is a force to be reckoned with. Over the past few months Grace has been steadily racking up a slew of impressive editorials, working with some of fashion’s coolest publications and best photographers. With three editorials in a row in Vogue Paris, a chic only-girl story in the latest Interview Magazine and compelling shots in British Vogue all eyes are on Grace. Coming off the heels of an impressive season (and exclusive) season is an accomplishment, but following it up with editorial after editorial of quality is what makes a model a star.

With her elegant features and powerful presence in front of the camera Raquel has become a standard bearer and industry icon – after a brief break Zimmermann has stepped back onto the scene, re-teaming with the powerful photographers whom she’s frequently collaborated with and creating a wealth of  impressive editorial and advertising imagery. David SimsSteven MeiselMert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) and Mario Sorrenti (Art Partner) have all worked with Zimmerman recently and the results have been impressive.
