Just Cavalli

November 17th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Leave it to Patrick Demarchelier and Alex White to add a touch of class to Roberto Cavalli’s in your face outfits. The duo joins forces in the latest W to pay tribute to Cavalli’s 40 years in the business and together they create a lovely black and white story with Frida Gustavsson. The mid-air poses and simple background are studio shoot staples, but White’s tribal themed is beautiful and fresh.

The September Issues

August 2nd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

It is only August, but fall starts the moment those larger than life September editions of magazines start coming in! This year’s line up of covers looks especially strong with top talent creating images that sum the season’s trends up in unique ways. Take a look at what September has in store for you.

Kate Moss by Patrick Demarchelier

British Vogue goes for the unbeatable combination of Kate Moss and Patrick Demarchelier; the veteran supermodel sports a signature rock inspired look complete with tousled bedhead and a pair of platform boots. It is hard to imagine anyone other than Kate on the cover of UK Vogue’s September edition.

Natasha Poly by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin

While the Brits are all about nonchalant cool, Vogue Nippon goes for luxury with an glam shot of Natasha Poly sporting big hair and an even bigger belt. The look isn’t exactly subtle, but for fans of over the top glamour it is sure to be treat.

Catherine McNeil by Max Doyle

Fans of 50s style will love Vogue Australia‘s rockabilly-esque cover with Catherine McNeil looking especially feline in leopard prints and red lips. The image is to die for, if only the pouty, tattooed person in the background were Freja!

Gisele Bundchen by Cedric Buchet

No matter the instance Gisele always delivers and the crisp, classic black and white reminds us of that. UK Bazaar’s striking covers always catch our eye, but Cedric Buchet really brought out the best of Mrs. Brady with this engaging image

Which September cover is your favorite so far?
