Testino Obsession

September 29th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

When Vogue Japan and Mario Testino (Art Partner) join forces anything is possible! The legendary photographer takes over the magazine, serving as the first guest editor in 15 years and bringing his unique viewpoint to each and every page. This is the 8th international Vogue issue that Testino has guest edited and if he ever tires of being one of the world’s foremost photographers he could easily slip into the role of editor. The art direction, design and editorials featured within are all top notch. Take a first look at the stories within and see what Testino and Vogue Japan’s Editor in Chief Mitsuko Watanabe have to say about this very special edition.

MARIO TESTINO: “I have been going to Japan on and off since the 1980s and since my very first experiences there I felt a spirit I really connected with. I found, on so many levels, that whatever the Japanese did, they did with absolute and unwavering conviction. It was this, which I came to view as obsession; it is a way of being that I have followed in my own life and career.

MITSUKO WATANABE: “This is the first time Testino has worked with VOGUE JAPAN. I am delighted that we have been able to realize this memorable project in which Mario has undertaken everything from photo shooting to editing to mark this special 15th anniversary, and also that the pages are magnificently finished to an outstandingly high degree of quality. This superb quality has greatly impressed me personally more than anything else.”

Polymath

September 22nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

It is hard to think of a model more innately chic than Natasha Poly and when you look at her latest work it’s easy to see why the Russian beauty is fashion’s go-to girl for glamour. On Luigi & Iango slick cover for October’s Vogue Germany Natasha is a vision in smoky eyeshadow and nude lips by Virginia Young (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management). The seductive editorial showcases Natasha at her most alluring, especially when she’s wearing little more than a wide brimmed hat ad a come hither stare.

In the pages of Vogue Paris Natasha heads in a completely different direction via an enchanting story with her daughter Aleksandra. Shot by Mario Testino (Art Partner) and featuring two generations of Poly pretty the cover celebrates Natasha’s new chapter as muse & mother. Though it might be a little too early to pick the Prada opener of S/S 2035 we can already see where the adorable Aleksandra could easily follow in the footsteps of her model mom; she’s already landed a Vogue cover and a space in Testino’s star-studded towel series before even learning how to walk.

Document Based

September 4th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Why have just one great cover when you can have six? Document Journal‘s F/W 2014 covers feature this season’s mega-models including Saskia de Brauw, Daria Werbowy, Stella Tennant, Raquel Zimmermann, Binx Walton, and Edie Campbell. The variety of this season’s covers show how the photographers & teams brought their own unique spirit to the table. Each cover stands alone, but artistry serves as a unifying theme bringing the diverse covers under the same creative umbrella. Contemporary art star Richard Prince shoots Daria Werbowy against an abstract canvas backdrop, while sculptor Isa Genzken reimagines Stella Tennant as a living work of art. Document’s impressive slate of photographers unleashed their creative side as well with Collier Schorr offering a studied portrait of a paint accented Saskia de Brauw. Roe Ethridge transforms it girl Binx Walton into a modern day Eve – complete with creeping serpent, while Richard Bush taps into Edie Campbell‘s reserves of cool with a Vuitton clad shot. Last but not least, hair stylist du jour Guido Palau collaborates with Fabien Baron for a special cover taking the versatile Raquel Zimmermann and capturing in an austere fashion that is both slick and stripped down.

We love each and every new cover of Document and can’t even pick a favorite… can you?

Models on the cover of American Vogue?!

Natalia On Top

August 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

It’s not every day that Vanity Fair puts a model on their cover, the legendary magazine is notoriously selective about who makes it onto the frontpage so when a model does appear you know she’s something special. Natalia Vodianova covers the VF fashion issue in little more than an oversized fur selected by stylist Jessica Diehl. As always Natalia looks phenomenal, but the most interesting moments come within Ingrid Sischy‘s expansive profile of the supermodel. Going beyond the oft-told story of Vodianova’s rise from humble beginnings in Nizhny Novgorod to international fame, Sischy crafts an intriguing portrait of an intelligent, humorous and determined woman at the top of her game.

September Reign

July 30th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

By now we’ve all heard the story about celebrities taking precious magazine cover spots away from models, but this September it appears the tides have turned. After years of stars on the front pages more and more magazines are looking to models for their biggest fashion issues. British Vogue boasts Cara Delevingne looking sleek in Nicolas Ghesquière‘s collection for Louis Vuitton in an image by Mario Testino (Art Partner), while Elle UK enlists a Prada clad Kate Upton for fashion forward shot by Matt Jones. Though the September covers are only just starting to debut you can already see which collections are going to be inecapable for the next few months.  WSJ provides a fetching seventies style image of Daria Werbowy by Josh Olins that also puts Ghesquière’s wares to good use. In keeping with the trend The New York Times’ T Magazine reaches for Prada, sheathing Vanessa Axente in one of the brand’s oversized coats in a strong cover image by Craig McDean.
