Liza with a Z

July 15th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion editorials are notorious for seeking inspiration in the form of cultural icons. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but some celebrity homages have been done to death – how many times have you seen a story centered around Grace Jones, Marilyn Monroe or Brigitte Bardot? It is always nice when a magazine chooses a theme that is slightly less overdone, so it’s a treat to open up Numero and find a colorful tribute to Liza Minnelli circa Cabaret. Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello transform Elisabeth Erm into a modern day Sally Bowles complete with sequins and feather boas selected by Samuel Francois, a touch of blue eyeshadow courtesy of Rie Omoto (See Management) and that signature black bob coifed by Romina Manenti (See Management). Elisabeth may lack Liza’s musical skills and that famous nose, but she pulls off the look admirably in Sanchez & Mongiello’s vivid images.

Clean Lines

September 1st, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Sometimes the simplest clothes make for the most engaging portraits; Anthony Maule and stylist, Samuel Francois create a sleek Numéro editorial centered around fall’s minimalist shapes. Using impeccable ensembles from brands like Calvin Klein and Rochas shot in a stripped down high contrast style, Maule crafts a beautiful series of images heightened by Samantha Gradoville‘s strong and sexy presence. The jet black eyebrows, the slicked back hair crafted by Romina Manenti, that incredible red Margiela coat – now this is how you do power dressing!

Heart of Darkness

April 29th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello take Valerija Kelava‘s dark beauty and use it to maximum effect in the latest Numero. The aptly titled ‘Desire’ editorial, is a sleek balance of sexy and dangerous; Valerija looks like a futuristic siren and Samuel Francois‘ daring styling choices fit the story perfectly. Even the aerodynamic hair, courtesty of Romina Manenti, looks completely right.
