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.

Lusting Over Luss

June 28th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

Sasha Luss (and her glass-cutting cheekbones) seem to be everywhere these days- and we can’t get enough! Luss turns heads on Numeros most recent cover, and inside the magazine the spotlight is undoubtedly on her edgy editorial- showing a different side of the sophisticated model. In ‘Born to Be Wild’ Luss works the camera looking like punk-rock perfection in the artistic shoot by Anthony Maule.

Double Vision : Saint Laurent Paris

January 9th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Hedi Slimane’s dramatic rebranding of Yves Saint Laurent was one of the most divisive collections in recent memory; everyone had an opinion, some more hotly debated than others. While many found Slimane’s changes to be completely in line with the spirit of the house and a much needed makeover that pushed the brand into the future, others felt the overhaul was unnecessary, overly hyped and even underwhelming. Wide brim hats and seventies style suiting aren’t for everyone, but no matter how you felt about the Saint Laurent Paris ensembles themselves, you knew you were going to be seeing a lot of them. Like the McQueen visors and Prada stripes that came before them, those SLP hats were destined for editorials; fashion editors can’t resist a look with instant visual impact and Slimane’s designs are always distinctive.

Though the chapeaus are shaping up to be one of the most photographed editorial pieces of the moment, few stylists have strayed from the vision Slimane presented on the runway. Every so often though, the mood of the image goes beyond simply rehashing the nonchalant cool vibe of Slimane’s Le Smoking influenced style and pushes into expressive territory. Take a look at the way Lori Goldstein adds a touch of 60s glamour in the Vogue Italia shots of Fei Fei Sun, putting a more structured version of the SLP headpiece to good use but making it right for a completely different kind of mood.
