Mean Girls

October 22nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Cool girls have always been a source of editorial inspiration; open up any magazine under the sun and you’ll see a profile on a budding it-girl, page after page of models with just the right attitudes and a general focus on the kind of women that inspire adoration. We can’t help but be fascinated by an editorial that heads back to the schoolyard and focuses on all things cool – suburban style.

In the latest New York Times Magazine Tyrone Lebon shoots the fresh cast of Juliana Schurig,Kremi Otashliyska, Kate King, Hannah Holman and Charlene Almarvez looking like a bunch of private school escapees. Wearing the latest looks from Band of OutsidersTheoryJ.W. Anderson and more, all selected by Sara Moonves, the haute fashion high schoolers seem ready to teach a course on style, but will they let you sit at their table come lunch period? Check out the full story on NYT.

Deja Vu : Food for Thought

April 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Richard Burbridge‘s latest over the top story for New York Times Magazine celebrates the season’s candy colored dresses & bold fruit prints, with a festive food meets fashion series of images. The idea is simple – take the plum prints on a Dolce & Gabbana dress and serve them with a side of fruit salad for good measure – but the magic is all in the execution. Robbie Spencer‘s styling on this story is nothing short of amazing – though we do wonder if he was the one picking up the cart at Whole Foods in addition to selecting the stellar designer looks. Hanne Gaby Odiele and Julia Nobis bring the concept to life with animated posing and the occasional taste of sweetness.

The story got us thinking about all the other time’s we’ve seen fashion and food collide. Though we prefer our meals on a plate something has to be said for the unexpected art that comes about when you re-imagine what every day items can do. Have a trip down memory lane and see some of our  favorite food meets fashion combos.

There is a Dolce & Gabbana dress hiding beneath all that produce.

Even if you didn’t notice the lobsters, this would be an epic shot.

Viktor & Rolf‘s decadent designs get coated in candy – very fitting!

Artist Sung Yeon Ju‘s Wearable Foods series (2009-2010) featured clothing crafted out of materials like banana peels and slices of eggplant.

2010 Kirsi Pyrhonen wore lettuce as a fashion statement in images by Magnus Unnar for the Barneys holiday catalog.

Who can forget that meat dresses Lady Gaga wore on the red carpet & the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan in 2010 – also designed by Sung Yeon Ju!

Cintia Dicker delights in a dress full of M&Ms in Ryan Yoon‘s shoot for Virgine Magazine – 2010

And now for something you can actually put in your mouth. How about some Chanel & Christian Louboutin cupcakes? Prop stylist Lisa Edsalv and photographer Therese Aldgard collaborated on these and we’re petitioning Aaron de MeyKarl Lagerfeld to get them in stores.

The Look of Angelo Pennetta

April 10th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Considering how much of fashion’s excitement happens behind the scenes, it is surprising how few editorial images enter into reportage territory. Ask anyone working in the industry: half the magic takes place far away from photo studios, runways and sound stages. Seeing these moments captured is always intriguing, and Angelo Pennetta‘s work provides a bird’s-eye view into the realities behind fashion.

In British Vogue, Pennetta follows Karlie Kloss as she makes her way through Paris fashion week, offering a glamorous yet candid look at the model lifestyle. The pictures are high gloss, styled to a t, and showcase some of the season’s best clothes, but they manage to feel authentic and inviting. Who wouldn’t want to lounge around at the Hotel Crillon with Karlie?

Likewise, Pennetta’s shots of the effervescent Liu Wen‘s travels through China felt like an little peek into Liu’s private side. So often it is the photographer who meticulously crafts the vision a model is supposed to represent; viewing the work of an artist who lets the girls be themselves is a treat. Especially when the journeys he takes you on are so lovely.

The Unsinkable Daria

May 24th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Daria Werbowy takes the New York Times Magazine to St. Barths as they follow her sailing adventures. Did you know that when she’s not appearing in campaigns for brands like Lancome and Celine, Ms. Werbowy is an avid sailor? Find out more in her NY Times profile:

“Werbowy loves the sea as much as the sun — a few years ago she took a break from modeling and sailed across the Atlantic from New York for 24 days with her father, brother and sister. A few days after our shoot, she would be embarking on a two-month sailing expedition from Guatemala to Belize, island hopping along the coast, then traveling through Central America to Costa Rica. There would be no staff, no captain, no chef, just a few friends and family members. Werbowy would do it all: sail, steer, clean and cook. “Daria can morph into so many different things,” Bird says. “She’s tough as nails.”

Cass Bird captures Daria’s carefree spirit in these alluring shots styled by Sara Moonves: no one does devil may care on a beach quite like Daria.
