Murphy’s Law

July 31st, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Chic Chicagoan Amanda Murphy is quietly becoming the go to girl for top tier photographers in search of a little All-American charm. With her classic features and soulful brown eyes, Amanda harks back to an earlier period in modeling. It’s easy to imagine off-kilter beauty fitting right in during the late 90s / early 00s, back when all models were expected to have a mix of edge and elegance. It’s that combination that makes Amanda such an in demand commodity, this month alone you’ll find her face in the pages of American Vogue, Vogue Paris and on her 2nd Vogue Italia cover in a row.

Spotlight On: Malcolm Edwards

April 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Hair can be one of the most transformative aspects of fashion editorials, taking models into otherworldly territory and changing how we view their beauty. As anyone who appreciates hair will tell you, one of the most exciting talents around is Malcolm Edwards, whose cutting-edge styles are works of art. From creating colorful pasty inspired do’s in W Magazine, to giving Oscar winner, Jennifer Lawrence a bit of flamingo finery, Edwards never fails to infuse a hint of magic in his imagery.

Cover to Cover

January 28th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

CHECKER CHIC

We’ve been seeing a lot of Marc Jacobs’ mod influenced collection for Louis Vuitton, so it is no surprised to see it showing up on the covers of two stylish publications this month. Numero‘s sleek image by Sebastian Kim gives you two sides of of Nadja Bender, while Vogue Japan offers a girlish take on Jacobs’ designs with a coquettish image of Lindsey Wixson by Patrick Demarchelier. Both pictures present a compelling fashion moment, so it really boils down to whether you prefer your Vuitton girl seductive, or syrupy sweet.

NADJA ON NUMERO OR LINDSEY ON VOGUE JAPAN – WHICH VERSION OF VUITTON DO YOU PREFER?


TEASER PLEASER

Dansk returns with two images designed to whet readers’ appetites for more of the famed Danish magazine’s blend of art and fashion. Nadja Bender shows up again (there isn’t a magazine you won’t find Nadja in these days) looking effortlessly cool in Hasse Nielsen‘s black and white shot, but the image that grabs our attention is that of the aptly named Adonis Bosso taken by Raf Stahelin. Dressed in a debonair fedora and head to metallics, Bosso cuts an impressive figure – we can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

NADJA OR ADONIS – WHICH DANSK TEASER CATCHES YOUR EYE?


BRAZILIAN BONUS!

Giampaolo Sgura and Anna Dello Russo are at it again! This time the duo creates four wildly different covers for Vogue Brasil featuring Magdalena FrackowiakIzabel GoulartBette Franke and Mirte Maas. Each cover captures a completely different mood within the sexy & chic theme: from the all out glamour of Magda’s shot, Mirte’s full on Dello Russo eclecticism, Izabel’s vibrant  cover image and the purity of Bette’s Prada collection image. Each cover has its merits, but we can’t help but think that Bette’s austere Miuccia madness feels freshest.

BETTE? IZABEL? MAGDALENA? MIRTE? WHICH VOGUE BRAZIL COVER GETS YOUR VOTE?

Cover to Cover

January 14th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s cover vs. cover in this roundup of the month’s fashion hits. Let us know which covers were your favorites and which one’s didn’t quite make the cut.

ANDROGYNOUS APPEAL

Both Saskia de Brauw and Milla Jovovich have an innately stylish vibe that sets them apart from other cover stars, so seeing their faces peering out from the newsstand is always a treat. On February’s Vogue Russia Saskia provides a bit of androgynous edge to Paolo Roversi‘s moody blue imagery in a serious yet sensual cover. Milla J on the other hand is looking resplendent in Saint Laurent Paris on Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin‘s New York themed cover of the new Vogue Paris.

SASKIA ON VOGUE RUSSIA OR MILLA ON VOGUE PARIS – WHICH COVER GETS YOUR VOTE?


2 SIDES OF CONSTANCE

February brings double the Constance Jablonski for you to enjoy, with two very different Vogue covers. Vogue Germany‘s Alexi Lubomirski (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) image offers a sultry vision of the Estee Lauder face, complete with dark lips and a retro chic bob worthy of a classic film siren. Patrick Demarchelier shows another side of Constance on Vogue China‘s springy cover shot, a simple portrait that is about as pretty as it gets.

SULTRY CONSTANCE OR FLOWERY CONSTANCE – EVERYBODY WINS!


BATTLE OF THE BLONDES

It is hard to find a flaw on Scarlett Johansson, but how does Elle UK‘s Rankin cover with the Avengers beauty compare to their one and only Anja Rubik? Both stars are clad in minimalist chic, both are looking phenomenal, but ultimately Anja’s cover is the more dynamic of the two. Naturally that means it is also the more difficult one to get your hands on, if you’re in London head on over to Selfridges to get this limited edition Elle cover.

SCARLETT’S ELLE COVER OR ANJA’S ELLE COVER – WHICH GETS YOUR VOTE?


THE TEASERS

LOVE Magazine
s new ‘Clean Issue’ may not have debut just yet, but they really know how to amp up the anticipation. The teaser shots of models of the moment, Cara Delevingne and Edie Campbell by Sølve Sundsbø are elegant without losing any of LOVE’s trademark cool.

CARA OR EDIE – WHICH LOVE TEASER GETS YOUR VOTE?

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.

A Delicate Touch

June 20th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With summer officially upon us and temperature’s rising to new heights, it feels fitting to enjoy an editorial focused on lightness, transparency and ease. Ludivine Poiblanc (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) takes on the season’s ethereal trend with a beautiful story in Interview.
