I Only Want You To Love Me

September 16th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

The conceptual maven Miles Aldridge has pulled together an exhibit delving into a deeper side of his oeuvre. Known for his brightly colored, femme charged editorials in Vogue Italia, there is nothing like viewing the Miles aesthetic in one space. I Only Want You To Love Me, held in the Somerset House in London is on view until September 29th and it is our personal recommendation that a showing of this magnitude not be missed- all of you fashion month travelers, don’t forget to take in some gallery art while you’re at it.

Retrospective : Vogue Hommes Japan

November 9th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Earlier this week it was announced that the consistently stellar Vogue Hommes Japan would be shuttering as part of Conde Nast’s decision to switch their men’s publications globally from Vogue, to GQ Style. Magazines come and go, but Vogue Hommes Japan was something special. Led by Nicola Formichetti and featuring the talents of some of fashion’s biggest names, the mag delved into the artistic, eccentric and boundary pushing side of menswear. Fashion can often be disproportionally focused on the ladies, but Formichetti and co. breathed new life into the world of men’s editorial with an outlook that was bold, brash and always on point. We’re going to miss VHJP and their in-your-face style, take a look back at some of our favorite editorials from the magazine and share your own in the comments.

One Impression of Francis Bacon
Ph. Tim Richardson
Fashion Editor – Shun Watanabe | MU Kristin Gallegos | Hair Cash Lawless

A mind-bending tribute to one of art’s heros, accompanied by an equally compelling film.


Digital Vol. 1 iPad Special
Ph. Pierre Debusschere
Fashion Editor – Nicola Formichetti

Before gifs became a regular part of our appreciation of editorials, Vogue Hommes Japan was creating content that utilized new media to tell fashion tales in a whole new way.


Ph. Mariano Vivanco
Fashion Editor – Nicola Formichetti

Gothic glamour at its finest, a theme the magazine has revisited since, but this story holds a special place in our hearts.


Samurai Fiction
Ph. Hedi Slimane
Fashion Editor – Nicola Formichetti

Pushing past the expected Slimane-isms and into new territory, this story explored the Asian influenced menswear trends in the most beautiful manner all in juicy, pops off the page color. We wish we could order prints of this one!


Glamourama
Ph. Miles Aldridge
Fashion Editor – Shun Watanabe | Makeup - Lloyd Simmonds

High gloss fantasy and saturated colors are Aldridge’s signature style, but this edit gives things a decadent menswear twist that makes things pulsate with energy.


Style & Product
Ph. Santiago & Mauricio Sierra
Fashion Editor – Shun Watanabe
Makeup –  Maud Laceppe | Hair - Diego Da Silva

You might remember this one from MDX recently, Shun Watanabe turned it out with the styling – Thom Browne has never looked this good.


The Americans
Ph. Hedi Slimane
Fashion Editor – Nicola Formichetti

Instant classic!


Bondage Warriors
Ph. Steven Klein
Fashion Editor –  Nicola Formichetti |  Makeup – Kabuki | Hair –  Shon

Steven Klein’s preoccupation with bondage has led to some truly exquisite editorials and this is no exception. Many fashion stories get called edgy, but this one pushed all the limits and it payed off big time.


The Creator of Devotion
Ph. Matthew Stone
Fashion Editor - Matthew Josephs
Makeup - Alex Box |  Hair - James Pecis

Pure beauty from one of the art world’s most exciting talents. Stone is a noted photographer, sculptor, performance artist, curator and more, this story utilizes his talents to create a sumptuous vision that went beyond fashion.


A Glowing Response
Ph. Richard Burbridge
Fashion Editor - Robbie Spencer
Makeup –  Peter Philips

Who says a men’s beauty story has to be dull? Burbridge plays with color and light, while Robbie Spencer’s styling talents are put to good use with the expressive styling.

While we prefer the brunette rock chick incarnation of Ruby Aldridge, it is nice to see a different side. Miles Aldridge transforms Ruby into one of his sullen housewives for Vogue Italia. Given the amount of times Miles has done a story featuring an aloofly beautiful, yet utterly bored homemaker were starting to think that he’s got a domestic fixation. That said, the pictures are always beautiful, colorful and Cathy Kasterine styling is on point.

The Parent Trap

August 3rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Raising kids is no picnic, but in Miles Aldridge‘s stylish story for Vogue Italia, it seems like a breeze! As a glamorous yet self involved diva, Bianca Balti has her daughter handle everything from brushing her hair, to applying her lipstick and lighting her cigarettes. In some shots it seems as though the roles of parent and child have been reversed completely, but Aldridge’s unique perspective and ostentatious styling by Alice Gentilucci provide just enough surrealism to keep us invested in the heroine’s tale.

Das Ist Gut

July 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

It doesn’t take much to make Claudia Schiffer look good. Other models rely on striking changes to keep our interest, but Miss Schiffer cornered the market on pristine blonde beauty two decades ago and never let go of it. Seeing her on the cover of Vogue Deutsch’s Made in Germany issue makes perfect sense and the seductive image by Miles Aldridge captures everything we love about our favorite ice princess. The lace mask, the bold red lip, that phenomenal platinum coif: so cool and so Claudia.

Ashley Smith takes to the pages of Vogue Italia looking luscious in Miles Aldridge‘s beach bunny story, styled by Cathy Kasterine. Wearing cat eye shades, itsy bitsy bikinis and a swinging 60s hair and makeup courtesy of Peter Gray and Lloyd Simmonds, Ashley looks every bit the vintage siren.

Carmen Kass is a master at portraying blonde ice queens who have it all and in the new Vogue Italia she steps into Miles Aldridge‘s candy colored world to play a slinky socialite. Clad in couture from Givenchy and Valentino and heaps of jewels, Carmen looks a million bucks and she knows it.
