Heart of the City

August 23rd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

V Magazine‘s New York issue pays tribute to all the things we love about the city that never sleeps and Mario Testino creates an editorial that features both sides of NY’s stylish look; the chic urbanity of uptown and the devil may care cool of downtown. Freja Beha Erichsen, Anna SeleznevaCarmen Kass and a stunning purple haired Sasha Pivovarova, take turns portraying different elements of Manhattanite style in ‘Uptown, Downtown’ and the end result is gorgeous. See the full story when V67 hits stands September 2nd.

Bits & Bytes: The Face

To go along with our Kate Moss post on her enduring beauty, is the editorial on Sean O’Pry by David Sims. His perfect face is near legendary at this point which is perfect for the Ralph Lauren American heroes story boldly styled by Beat Bolliger. (pic courtesy of VNY, more pics see here)

Funny. Fashion Week Daily talks about fashion people who don’t “own” their own name.

Photographer Magnus Unnar talks to Interview Magazine

Karl Lagerfeld is alternately supremely witty/insightful and so out of touch in this Vice interview. That’s what makes him Kaiser Karl and why we’re always fascinated. You’ll also see how handsome he was (with a still shot of Karl in an Andy Warhol flick).

Swide interviews Maurilio Carnino for MTC Casting about the casting business. He talks about that infamous Donna Karan show where the lights fell on the audienc. We adore his new site for real people, A Streetcat named Desire.

The gorgeous Teresa Lourenco who we ran into last night, looks amazing as a pregnant mommy.

Remember the D&G supermodel fragrance ad with Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Tyson Ballou, etc? The Brazilian face in that ad Fernando Fernandes got into a tragic car crash and is paralyzed from the waist down. Look what he’s doing now.

Here’s a V Magazine update:
3 incredible videos of everyone’s favorite Raquel Zimmerman by Mario Sorrenti, Carolyn Murphy and gorgeous boy models by Sebastian Faena and Kirsten Dunst looking like an old time movie star by Mario Testino. Below the 2 V Man/Ford Models winners. Can’t wait to see the covers shot by Terry Richardson.
