Met Mavens

May 4th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The red carpet of the Met’s Costume Institute Gala is always a scene for fashion moments and mishaps, the attendees either look incredible or completely regrettable but no matter what the outfits are memorable. This year was no exception with scores of actors, models and fashionistas turning up in their sartorial best, but who won the evening when it came to style? Did Chanel Iman’s Kors jumpsuit look refreshingly modern, or overly glittery? Was Doutzen’s Zac Posen a little too prom queen for you, or was the look perfectly sweet? Was Sasha’s beige Marni the bomb or a total bust? Tell us who you think looked the best, or the worst and take a look at the roundup of chic model looks.

Sexy Back

November 24th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Love him or hate him, Terry Richardson knows how to get your attention. His oft imitated but never duplicated style is sexy and memorable, and for the 2010 Pirelli calendar, Richardson brings a touch of cheekiness and sensuality with his snapshots of scantily-clad beauties. Whether it is the ethereal, Georgina Stojiljkovic posing with a very happy sloth or Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Marloes Horst looking pristine on white sand beaches; each picture is provocative yet playful.

Stephen Novak with Request Men is the new face in the multi page Bondage Warriors story, garnering quite a number of pages for the unknown Texan. Endorsed by Steven Klein and Nicola Formichetti, Stephen is definitely most wanted for fall. (Photo by Samuel Zakuto)

Myf Shepherd by Imogen Morris-Clarke. We love Imogen’s dreamy beautiful pics of all her model friends. Who has more access to models than the models themselves?

Baptiste Giabiconi and Freja Beha Erichsen in the 30th anniversary of German Vogue by Karl Lagerfeld. A collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld,Peter Lindbergh and Bruce Weber (whose parents came from Germany in the early 20th century), this looks to be wunderbar!

More Baptiste Giabiconi by Karl Lagerfeld.. Get October Wallpaper Magazine and you can get Baptiste nude.

The Cut has Fashion Week’s top parties in one place. Check it out.

New designer Jakob Polanka? Think black and statement making.

Cupcakes and Coco? We are so there to catch Miss Coco Rocha dance!!

Diane Pernet of A Shaded View on Fashion has the right idea. Moving pictures is the vision of the future.

Everyone has said it, The September Issue is all about Grace Coddington but we can’t say it any better than this.

Check out the Vogue Italia animation for the “Performance” shoot.Anna Jagodzinska smokes a pipe and Will Lewis gets “broomed”.

Everybody’s favorite “Body”, model Chad White, hosts Video Fashion during Fashion Week. Joining such industry names as Elle’s creative director Joe Zee and designer John Bartlett, Chad is a supermodel who has a riveting magnetism. We know, we’ve interviewed him.

The Italian designer, Francesco Scognamiglio, showcases his new video with the incredible Hannelore Knuts and some beautiful unclothed men. Shot by Giampaolo Sgura and styled by Paola Turina, it’s a wonderful way to see his glamourous line for Fall. Go to Francesco’s site to see backstage with models Kim Noorda, Kendra Spears andIris Strubegger and lots of luxurious items for fall.

The Gap’s Patrick Robinson and Oprah Winfrey to co-chair the next Met Ball Gala. Anna Wintour, Patrick and Oprah is all sorts of power in one room!

Behind the scenes, Eniko Mihalik on a water buffalo

And what everyone’s been waiting for, the 2009 Pirelli Calendar by Terry Richardson. Italian Vanity Fair has the preview with the full cast (casting by Jennifer Starr). Fashionologie via Italian Vanity Fair.

———————————————–

One of our favorite stylists, Nicola Formichetti is featured on the Cut.

We’re all for more inclusiveness (British Vogue’s Alexander Schulman tackles the size 0 problem). Here’s Jezebel’s interesting take on it.

Here’s another interview for the Brazilian fans.. the very lovely Izabel Goulart.

Funny, funny, funny; French Vogue is “anti-pants” so says Jezebel.

There’s a new documentary coming out about Brazilian models. Though sadly it’s in Portugese only, who cares when you can look the gorgeous Gisele Bundchen, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana, Caroline Trentini, Adriana Lima and Caroline Ribeiro emote in their native language. (Take a peek at rarely seen Cyril Brule, owner of Viva and Marilyn Gauthier, owner of Marilyn’s and photographer Peter Beard).

If you don’t know JD Ferguson‘s background, read about the model/photographer/general man about town and his fun times with Karl Lagerfeld and the top models.

Sans Artifice is a fan of photographer Norman Jean Roy,  he “brings out the Vogue ethos“.

New Dutch model agency to watch! Modelution is featured on the Ones2Watch.
Continuing in the same vein as Sarah Ziff in Picture Me, Frockwriter explores the dark side of the industry.
Gisele AND Jesus on the same runway…. The Brazilians are buzzing about the Colcci show.

If you’re in Chicago, Wednesday June 24th, go meet Elite Chicago’s scouts (click on the link for age and height requirements).

Home of Johanna Knepper (hot new face of Givenchy show this past spring), Just WM Paris has a  new blog! 

Terry shooting the 11 beauties;  Eniko Mihalik, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Daisy Lowe, Gracie Carvalho, Marloes Horst, Lily Cole, Ana Beatriz Barros, Miranda Kerr, Georgina Stojiljkovic.
