Karl Lagerfeld shoots his new muse, Joan Smalls, for the latest cover of Vogue Espana. Lagerfeld truly captures the essence of the model’s beauty, where she completely shines in black and white. The magazine absolutely closes out 2013 the right way with Smalls and a cover as stunning as this.


Blonde Bombshell Maryna Linchuk looks absolutely angelic on the latest cover from Vogue Russia. Everything about this striking shot by Vincent Peters works—from the feminine hair and makeup, to the sexy styling from Olga Dunina. Well done, Vogue Russia.

Hair: Perrine Rougemont | Makeup: Carole Lasnier | Manicurist: Lucia Cheptene


It’s no surprise to find Karlie Kloss gracing the cover of Vogue Japan shot by Patrick Demarchelier— this marks her third cover for the magazine in almost six months. As always, however, the outstanding Kloss looks fresh, flawless, and still delivers sex appeal in a more conservative look by Sabino Pantone.

Seeing Spots

May 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When Haider Ackermann filled his S/S13 runway with transparent creations emblazoned with black and white dots, it seemed like an unusual move. Polka dots are a fashion standard dating back years, but the diminutive patterns are more often associated with the prim styles of the 1950s than with the kinds of cutting-edge wares favored on Paris’ runways. The designer so known for his innovative use of lush, saturated color was showing another side, taking one of the most uncool of motifs and making it feel new.

In keeping with the current craze for all things graphic, stylists have embraced the versatility of these simple circles, working Ackermann’s creations into a variety of editorials. On occasion the interpretations don’t veer too far from the runway approach (fashion abides by the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ mantra whenever it can) but the excitement comes when the spots are complimented by clashing patterns to create a dynamic visual treat. Whether it is layering in another of Ackermann’s prints from S/S or adding a bold kimono for interest, the real fun lies in the mix which offers stylists an opportunity to show their creativity.
