Cover Confidential

March 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Feburary and March are big business for fashion magazines with glossies often debuting some of their best and brightest content during these months focused on spring collections, renewal and change. Take a look back at some of the most interesting covers from the boundlessly creative, to the simply beautiful.

PURE BEAUTY

Antidote Magazine‘s romance issue boasted multiple covers by Cuneyt Akeroglu featuring some of the world’s most beautiful women. United by their simple yet effective photography and their chic take on the magazine’s pristine subjects these covers were something special.

As one of fashion’s coolest faces Leona Binx Walton is typically photographed looking grungy, avant garde or off-kilter. Her Self Service cover with it’s effective beauty statement and clean layout showed another side. Collier Schorr portrait brings out Binx’s beauty, while maintaining her character.

THE BEST OF CELEBRITY

There are few actresses as effervescent as Marion Cotillard and Interview Magazine‘s March cover captured the La Vie En Rose star’s elegant side with a shot by Craig McDean that positively crackles with good ol’ fashioned glamour. Styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Christophe Danchaud and a 40s coif by Sam McKnight the image strikes the right balance between retro film siren and modern glamour - as does the accompanying fashion story. 

On the flip side, Dazed & Confused‘s rough and tumble cover of Scarlett Johansson finds the star’s inner bad girl and brings it to the forefront with a vibrant shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby . The combo of red background and Saint Laurent biker jacket and Scar-Jo’s glare makes for an appealing contrast to the typical smiling celebrity glamour shot.

MINIMAL MARVELS

You can’t go wrong with a picture of Daria Werbowy and The Last Magazine served up an epic large format image the superstar looking foreboding for it’s spring issue –  Mikael Jansson‘s in your face shot captures Werbowy at her rawest and best.

The Gentlewoman always errs on the side of minimalism, but the pulpy red cover of Vivienne Westwood by Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) was the perfect merger of timelessness and modernity.

CREATIVITY RULES

Nick Knight‘s trippy photography has always struck a chord with surrealists and on the cover of GARAGE‘s spring/summer edition he twists and morphs Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne into unbidden creatures designs that were eventually tattooed onto the skin of Garage readers – how’s that for taking things to the next level.

E.T. got a fashion makeover with Lindsey Wixson taking over the frontpage of CR Fashion Book with an expressive Sebastian Faena image that puts Wixson’s otherworldly visage to good use with a sweet nod to an 80s favorite.

DESIGNER DOMINATION

Karl Lagerfeld’s watercolor inspired spring Chanel collection has proved a hit with editors, in addition to appearing in the pages of just about every magazine imaginable his paint by numbers dresses found themselves on a variety of covers in March, most notably Vogue China, where two of the designer’s creations took center stage.

Not one to be outdone, Miuccia Prada also made a strong showing this March (and April) with a variety of painterly spring looks from her collections showing up on the cover of several different magazines.

Kate’s Allure

July 16th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

Allure Magazine breaks away from its usual cover model comfort zone of A-list actresses this month, by featuring a model on its August cover. And we’re not just talking any model here, we’re talking about none other than Kate Moss. The magazine hasn’t featured a high fashion model on its cover in nearly 10 years (Project Runway host Heidi Klum‘s May 2012 cover notwithstanding) so it only makes sense for the iconic Moss to land the first supermodel cover in years. Moss’s gorgeous cover shot is captivating, proving she still has that same spark from when she first got her big break over 20 years ago.

Photographer: Mario Testino | Creative Director – Paul Cavaco | Hair – Sam McKnight | Makeup – Tom Pecheux

Campaign Confidential

January 3rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Luxury powerhouses have unleashed their S/S campaigns with great fanfare, but which brand’s spring outlook are you liking best? Take a look at some of the best brand new campaigns on the scene and let us know your faves in the comments.


MULBERRY

Tim Walker‘s dreamy imagery has come to define the Mulberry campaign look for a few seasons now and the brand’s latest starring Meghan Collison, takes the party underwater setting Meghan against a undersea backdrop of soft pastels and coral that perfectly coordinates with the line’s feminine S/S collection.


VERSACE

More is always more in the world of Versace and for S/S they pull out all the stops with a stylized campaign filled with supermodels, bold color and enough drama to fill an entire operetta. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott create a blue tinted world of beauty, sensuality and references to mythology.


GIORGIO ARMANI

Giorgio Armani (Designer)| Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Photographers) Models: Saskia de Brauw & Roch Barbot

Sophistication is key in the world of Armani and Saskia de Brauw serves as the perfect incarnation of the Armani woman in the brand new S/S ads. Poised, refined and of course clad in crisp suiting straight of the runway, de Brauw shines in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott‘s seamless images.


GIVENCHY

Riccardo Tisci (Designer) | Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Photographer) |Carine Roitfeld (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Mathias Augustyniak & Michael Amzalag (Art Director) Models: Francisco PeraltaKate MossMariacarla Boscono

Givenchy usually goes for high concept campaign shots, but this season the line tones it down with striking black and white portraits. The new campaign even features the ultimate scene stealer, Mariacarla Boscono‘s daughter, Marialucas.


PRADA


Miuccia Prada
 (Designer) | Steven Meisel (Photographer) | Olivier Rizzo (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Guido Palau (Hair Stylist) | Pat McGrath (Makeup Artist) | Ashley Brokaw (Casting Director) Models: Eva HerzigovaIrene HiemstraIrina KravchenkoKirsten OwenMaartje VerhoefSasha PivovarovaSaskia de BrauwSung Hee KimVanessa Axente

Miuccia’s eclectic collection finds its way onto the backs of a multi-generational cast featuring a series of notable models from the past 20 years. The striking Steven Meisel helmed campaign celebrates the uniqueness of the Spring collection and its undeniable visual impact; when you have great clothes and great models what more do you need.

Nick Knight‘s Showstudio, as everyone knows, is a fashion pioneer on the web. They’ve been experimenting with fashion and video and pushing the boundaries from the beginning. The stupendous Raquel Zimmermann and her Gareth Pugh moment on the site (pictured above) may be one of our favorite model + fashion moments ever. Take a peek at some faces and videos that have caught our eye in the recent months since (click on image to view videos.). What are some of your favorite model/fashion videos?

Shaun Ross for Vogue Italia in conjunction with ASVOF in a dreamy short film.

amber
Amber Le Bon for Test Mag channels her famous father’s pout and sultry stare and combines it with her supermodel mom Yasmin’s grace in front of the camera.

emily
See supermodel in the making Emily DiDonato in her Acqua di Gioa commercial. Emily, first spotted here on Feed in 2008 has done so much in her mere 2 years in the biz.

abbeyvi
When else but in modern times can the average person see behind the scenes at the hallowed Meisel sets? There’s plenty of Karl Templer and Guido but sadly no Steven or Pat in VI’s April Shrink to Fit editorial.

gisele2

We twittered a while ago and asked, which model do you think has the best hair? Gisele Bundchen in this video vies for the title.

shannan
The lovely Shannan Click on location in Tunisia.

spiralallen

Medusa or model? We love this quick clip of Allen Roth and his moving hair.


lily

Speaking of hair check out the incredible Lily Donaldson by her dad Matthew Donaldson and hair maven Sam McKnight for Nowness. While on Nowness, take a look at Liu Wen’s video which is pretty darn gorgeous.

And last but not least Karl Lagerfeld‘s Remember Now for the recent Chanel resort show, chock full of all his favorite muses.
