The Silk Road

November 19th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s difficult not to have a soft spot for American Vogue‘s actor + model editorials and over the years the magazine has given us more than a few memorable pairings; Gisele and George Clooney, Gemma Ward and Josh Hartnett, Liya Kebede & Andre 3000, the list goes on. For the December issue Vogue takes things to the next level, enlisting Kate Moss and this year’s Oscar front-runner Chiwetel Ejiofor for a Mario Testino (Art Partner) helmed story that takes the pair to Istanbul on a romantic getaway. Sporting resort looks from BurberryJason Wu and a bit of SS14 Proenza Schouler as styled by Tonne Goodman, the pair looks resplendent. With architectural wonders like the Çinili Köşk as the backdrop and Testino showcasing the beauty of Istanbul in every shot the story also serves as an especially chic travel diary.

The Cat Returns

August 7th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

2013 is a big year for Catherine McNeil, with an enviable comeback in full swing and a recent agency switch to The Society Management the Aussie beauty is absolutely everywhere. One of the most beautiful stories she’s featured in this month comes courtesy of Mario Testino, who captured Cat in classic style within the pages of British Vogue. As one of the first photographers to champion Catherine at the beginning of her career, Testino knows exactly how to present McNeil’s lush, sensual beauty. The elegant story styled by Lucinda Chambers focuses on the season’s ladylike dressing and the abundant floral detailing seen on the runways. In the hands of a lesser team, this story could seem tepid, but Testino, Chambers and McNeil bring the theme to life with an expressive grandeur.

Consistently Kors

July 17th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

With the recent release of the Michael Kors F/W 13 campaign, other than stating the obvious of ‘stylish’ and ‘glamorous’, the best word to describe the campaign is ‘consistent’ — and we mean consistent in the best way. Michael Kors’ leading man and lady, Simon Nessman and Karmen Pedaru, are 2 of the main reasons for the fabulous consistency in Kors’ campaigns. The jet-setting duo is flawless in the latest, shot by none other than Mario Testino, his 10th year shooting for the designer.

Take a look at the new F/W 13 campaign below, followed by some of our favorites from the designer:

Kate’s Allure

July 16th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

Allure Magazine breaks away from its usual cover model comfort zone of A-list actresses this month, by featuring a model on its August cover. And we’re not just talking any model here, we’re talking about none other than Kate Moss. The magazine hasn’t featured a high fashion model on its cover in nearly 10 years (Project Runway host Heidi Klum‘s May 2012 cover notwithstanding) so it only makes sense for the iconic Moss to land the first supermodel cover in years. Moss’s gorgeous cover shot is captivating, proving she still has that same spark from when she first got her big break over 20 years ago.

Photographer: Mario Testino | Creative Director – Paul Cavaco | Hair – Sam McKnight | Makeup – Tom Pecheux

America’s Bombshell

May 10th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Kate Upton.
Mario Testino.
American Vogue.

A testament to the unstoppable power of Upton! Many have tried, few have managed to snag themselves an only girl Vogue cover. Which goes to show you, in this day and age it takes more than a pretty face and a great showlist. To compete at the top tier a girl has to be part poser, part full-fledged media star appealing to not just the fashion crowd, but all demographics.

See the full slideshow on Vogue.com

Keeping Up With Ms. Moss

January 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

What would the fashion world do without the one and only Kate Moss? The always in demand Miss Moss is back and better than ever, racking up campaigns and editorials with an ease befitting her legendary status as the defining model of the past two decades. No one does it better, so kick back, relax and just take in the plentiful Kate goodness. Whether she’s looking lush on the cover of Love Magazine latest issue, or showing off her natural beauty in pared down ads for Vivienne Westwood and Rag & Bone, Kate looks stunning, it’s easy to see why the biz is still infatuated with Kate after all these years.

Look for a special Kate Moss surprise coming soon to Models.com!

Ad Network

January 16th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

More fabulous fashion ads keep coming in, take a look at the latest.

TOM FORD

Tom Ford - Designer & Photographer | Orlando Pita - Hair Stylist | Charlotte Tilbury - Makeup Artist |Karlina Caune & Simon Van Meervenne - Models

We can always count on Tom Ford for an epitomized version of modern glamour and his latest campaign delivers with sleek shots by Ford himself of Karlina Caune and Simon Van Meervenne. Playing to his strengths the designer / photographer / director / provocateur creates simple images that focus on those decadent designs. Who needs exotic locations and complicated set ups when you have the beauty of those golden to the knee sandals and fringed shoes! Karlina and Simon look pretty damn good too, both models capture the slightly dangerous and oh so sexy vibe of Ford’s ethos.

 


ALEXANDER WANG


Alexander Wang
 - Designer | Steven Klein - Photographer | Pascal Dangin - Art Director | Malgosia Bela - Model

Given the memorable way Wang presented his S/S collection’s glow in the dark dresses, we were expecting a campaign with flashing lights, or blinding neons from Alexander Wang. Never one to go for the obvious thrill, Wang enlists Steven Klein and Pascal Dangin for an evocative campaign featuring the Malgosia Bela. The beauty of these images lies in the artistic way in which the clothing is presented: with her body painted in white and the stark backdrop, Malgosia looks more like a performance artist than a model. As the Wang label enters into its next stage of development this campaign provides a dynamic and eye-catching brand message.


KENZO

Jean Paul Goude - Photographer | Anthony Turner - Hair Stylist | Aaron de Mey - Makeup Artist | Humberto Leon & Carol Lim - Creative Directors | Jester White & Ming Xi - Models

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Kenzo’s F/W ads by Jean Paul Goude were arresting and upbeat – they even made our best of 2012 list and for S/S the saga continues with Ming Xi and Jester White picking up where things left off. We didn’t think it would be possible, but these ads are even more colorful and kooky than the first set.


AKRIS

Karim Sadli - Photographer | Anthony Turner - Hair Stylist | Hannah Murray - Makeup Artist | Alana Zimmer - Model

Karim Sadli shoots Akris’ understated S/S ads featuring Alana Zimmer. Akris has always been about luxury that whispers instead of shouts and Saldi does an excellent job of communicating that message visually. Albert Kriemler’s elegantly minimal designs look especially beautiful set against the lush green backdrop and Alana is as lovely as ever.


ROBERTO CAVALLI

Roberto Cavalli - Designer | Mario Testino  – Photographer | Marie Chaix - Fashion Editor/Stylist | Sam McKnight - Hair Stylist | Charlotte Tilbury - Makeup Artist | Jack Flanagan - Set Designer | Lorraine Griffin - Manicurist

Roberto Cavalli’s clothes are not for wallflowers, so it makes sense that the S/S campaign features three of the boldest and mostt compelling models around. Isabeli Fontana, Malgosia Bela and Sui He star in Mario Testino‘s kinetic images filled with bold prints, saturated colors and the brand’s signature in your face opulence.

Double Vision : Dior Couture

October 18th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion shows are well and good, but the true test of a collection’s impact is often played out in the editorial pages. When you have multiple editors reaching for the same pieces over and over again you know a designer has hit a nerve. Even when the styling itself isn’t that noticeably different between images, there are always key changes in presentation that separate fashion stories; whether it is the model choice, the manner in which the photographer chose to present the garment, or even something as simple as color vs. black and white, each team puts its own special stamp on things. Take a look at the way in which different magazines have interpreted two of the most popular pieces within the collection and let us know who you think pulled it off best.
