January 25th, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Class is in session and Vogue Paris harnesses the talents of three image-makers to dish out lessons in style. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh MatadinAlasdair McLellan and Mario Sorrenti lend  their respective lenses to capture a crop of the most in-demand girls giving an effortless how-to on wearing the latest season’s offerings. Of course we can’t all get dressed by stylists like Suzanne KollerMarie Chaix or Emmanuelle Alt, but it’s a good opportunity to take notes. Done in three parts from Edie Campbell‘s cover editorial to Karly Loyce and Lineisy Montero showing how to put some backbone in your fashion choices, while Alasdair gives his unstudied touch to his casting-centric series. See a preview of the editorials below.

First Look: Document Journal

October 1st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

In the latest volume of Document Journal, stylist Olivier Rizzo delivers his magic touch, guest editing the magazine into a full on fashion folio with some of photography’s brightest stars and a who’s who cast of intriguing lens-worthy faces. The twelve, Rizzo-styled covers give a swatch sized glimpse into the accompanying editorials by Jamie HawkesworthCraig McDean, Wolfgang TillmansHarley WeirAlasdair McLellan and a whopping 7 by Willy Vanderperre. Editors Nick Vogelson & James Valeri‘s issue preface introduces Rizzo’s significance by saying, “His ingrained devotion to beauty— unconventional, sometimes ugly, and at times simple—led us to him, and him to us, as Document’s guest editor for this issue.” Inside, the exhaustive Vanderperre stories put on display his singularly cool perspective, while other majorly aesthetic imaginings, like Gareth McConnell‘s low-fi, hyper pop pictures or McDean’s fine-tuned shots of Lexi Boling, give another take on what’s current. Take an exclusive first look into the encompassing Olivier Rizzo edited issue with all 12 covers.

January 21st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion rebels rejoice! W Magazine takes a tour de force trip through the season’s eccentric styles as chosen by Edward Enninful. Craig McDean shoots Malaika Firth, Juliana Schurig, Marina Nery, Irene Hiemstra and Sasha Luss in outlandish looks from Prada, Lanvin and Chanel, covered with pattern, color, ruffles, lace and every other sort of embellishment imaginable. The girls look ornate but never overdone and McDean’s effortless images give the over the top editorial a sense of ease. Top notch work from James Pecis (New York: D + V Management, London: D + V Management ), Peter Philips and Megumi Itano adds to the finery, creating an exciting beauty look that pushes the images into the realm of the fantastical.

Karmen Chameleon

February 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Are we in the midst of a Karmen Pedaru moment? All signs point to yes; as the lithe Estonian burns up the runways of Milan we’re treated to several stunning new covers of Karmen this month. The Pedaru visage is featured on some of the coolest magazines in existence and each image provides its own creative take on her appeal.

As one of the ten top model covers of The Last Magazine, Karmen exudes sensuality in Lachlan Bailey (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists)’s sultry black and white shot. On Flair‘s cover Karmen provides an elegant ease that Katja Rahlwes (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) captures beautifully. That said, the most unexpected cover shot has to be i-D Magazine‘s trippy Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) image that comes complete with a gif party.

Butterfly Effect

May 14th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion inspiration is hard to come by lately, but Dazed & Confused never fails to excite. Ben Toms pushes the visual envelope with help from makeup master Peter Philips and the styling genius of Robbie Spencer. Dutch beauty Elza Luijendijk is transformed into an otherworldly creature with a liberal application of butterflies, moths and of course, diamonds – the end result is pure magic.

Beauty Bytes: Josie’s Model Citizens & Swarovski’s Aura

April 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Arguably the most beautiful & exciting thing to come our way this week was the new Swarovski scent, AURA. Ultra-sleek packaging aside (the bottle was designed by Gwenaël Nicolas, man behind some of the world’s architectural masterpieces) the scent completely captures everything we love about Swarovski. A crystal is the perfect final touch, that extra bit of shimmer that makes an ensemble special – Aura is that in a fragrance. The delicate blend of amber, benzoin & white musk sparkles on the skin and with a brand new Aura gloss compact it sparkles on the lips too.

We love when models do something special for a charitable cause, so naturally we’re in love with model turned beauty mogul Josie Maran‘s latest project. For the ‘Model Citizen’ campaign Josie teams up with Petra Nemcova and Angela Lindvall to create limited edition bottles of her line’s famous Argan oil, with bottles designed by each girl & proceeds going to the charities close to the girl’s hearts – Happy Hearts fund, Women for Women & Healthy Child / Healthy World all benefit.

Take a look inside Lara Stone‘s makeup bag and what will you find – apparently a whole lot of Calvin Klein & Sisley! Speaking of Calvin, take a look at our first impressions of the new ck one color collection.

Speculation on who Dior’s newly minted designer, Raf Simons will put on makeup duty is rising. British Vogue takes a look back at Pat McGrath‘s impressive Dior beauty creations during the time of John Galliano, while Style.com suggests Raf might be leaning towards his longtime cosmetic collaborator Peter Philips.

mdc ♥s : 2011 Best of Beauty

January 3rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle


In one of the year’s most memorable beauty images Frida Gustavsson gets her lips painted gold | shot by Patrick Demarchelier for W Magazine

We primped and polished are way through dozens of products in 2011, but these were the ones we went back and reached for again and again – the absolute BEST Beauty Products we tried all year. Find out why we loved them and start 2012 off right by telling us what you loved.

REVLON COLOR BURST LIP BUTTERS
Why it made our list – With a creamy lip balm texture and 20 electric colors, the Lip Butters are an affordable luxury – as good as any high end product we tested. We would reach for any lipbalm that contained mango, shea and coconut butters, so it is wonderful to find those moisturizing ingredients in something with color payoff. Bright shades like Lollipop and Raspberry Pie are our personal favorites, but every shade is a winner and at eight bucks a pop you won’t break the bank trying them.

CHANEL VITALUMIERE AQUA
Why it made our list – Foundation for foundation-phobes. We admit to being inconsolable when Chanel discontinued our previous holy grail Teint Innocence, but this more than makes up for it. The lighter than air texture and sheer quality of this foundation make it look like your skin but better, it is pretty safe to say that Peter Philips is on a roll.

GUERLAIN TERRACOTTA FOUR SEASONS
Why it made our list – Guerlain’s bronzers have always been popular, but the four seasons is the MVP of their lineup. There wasn’t a backstage during Paris Fashion Week where we didn’t spot this popular matte bronzer in the kits of our favorite makeup artists. A must have for sculpting cheekbones, adding a touch of face brightening color and of course providing that enviable “natural” glow we saw on so many of the S/S catwalks.

BURBERRY FRESH GLOW
Why it made our list – Everyone is searching for a product that creates the lit from within look and Burberry’s unique highlighter delivers. Developed by Christopher Bailey with Wendy Rowe serving as Artistic Consultant for the line, Fresh Glow works for all skintones. Whether you mix it with your foundation or use it on its own, it gives you that gorgeous shine that seems completely natural.

KOH GEN DO CLEANSING SPA WATER
Why it made our list – We’ve raved about it before, but this Japanese line is quickly becoming one of our favorites – one swipe of this refreshing makeup remover and every speck of powder, mascara, lipstick, etc. is gone. Simply the best.

SKYN ICELAND ANGELICA LINE SMOOTHER
Why it made our list – Crows feet, laugh lines, those distressing little signs of age all smoothed out and hidden without having to deal with the sting of a doctor’s needle or any invasive treatments. For all those times you want to look your absolute best the Angelica line smoother instantly enhances the skin and fills in any little nagging imperfections.

CLARINS FACE TREATMENT OILS
Why it made our list – It just plain works. Apply in the evening before bed and wake up to refreshed, hydrated skin that looks smoother, clearer and infinitely less stressed than it did the night before: added bonus the calming aromatherapy scent.

NUDE ADVANCED CELLULAR RENEWAL MOISTURIZER
Why it made our list – If you couldn’t tell from some our previous recommendations, our skin was stressed this year and NUDE’s cellular renewal regimen was one of the things that helped to calm it down. Soothing white jasmine, shea and a whole host of nourishing goodies to keep things hydrated and looking good.

CHANTECAILLE POUDRE PERLE 
Why it made our list – This ultra portable, refillable wonder has made our beauty routines easier – especially on the go. Ever have five minutes to get yourself ready on a moving train filled with commuters? This will do the trick. Part highlighting powder, part blush this guarantees you’ll look fresh as a daisy.

MAKEUP FOREVER HD POWDER
Why it made our list – Accept no substitutes. When the camera reveals each and every pore (not to mention every single flaw imaginable), this is what beauty experts dust on to conceal those tell tale pores and hide shine. We’ve spotted this on shoots, backstage during NYFW and even in the makeup trailer on the set of a movie – even if you aren’t gearing up to be in onscreen this is a must have.

MORROCCANOIL RESTORATIVE HAIR MASK
Why it made our list – Saving our dry, distressed and mistreated hair one strand at a time with gentle TLC that conditions and comforts.

ESTEE LAUDER SUMPTUOUS EXTREME MASCARA
Why it made our list – Instant badaboom lashes that don’t leave us looking like a raccoon two hours later. One of the many Estee goodies we’ve spotted Tom Pecheux using backstage and absolutely had to try out for ourselves.
