The Prada Persuasion

June 17th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Miuccia Prada keeps us on our toes; whether that is with idiosyncratic collections, or one of a kind imagery depends on the day, but one could never accuse camp Prada of being boring. This season’s campaign is a testament to the brand’s ability to think outside the box, their F/W image is all about the next generation of modeling stars. As such you will find no familiars amongst the stunning cast (well maybe just one – budding supermodel Frida Gustavsson also stars) Ashley Brokaw went in search of girls with the Prada je ne sais quoi, that certain special something that has defined the brand’s faces from Sasha Pivovarova to Daria Werbowy. Only the newest of the new need apply – some of the campaign’s stars haven’t even walked shows yet.

In the first snaps to hit the internet the gorgeous Kelly Mittendorf (Marilyn) gives a star making turn in a beautiful shot by Steven Meisel. The image is pure Prada and Kelly’s one of a kind look is certain to grab the attention of casting directors and model fans alike. BONUS: Gorgeous newcomers Ondria Hardin (Ford) and Antonia Wesseloh (Ford) make equally alluring debuts in the campaign’s two new images!

Romantic Rites

Gorgeous models and their boyfriends; not exactly an original theme but, Patrick Demarchelier‘s Vogue story on gamine beauties and the men who love them, is beautiful all the same. The simple shots, accentuated by Tabitha Simmons‘s trench styling and Yumi‘s flawless makeup, serve as a lovely introduction to the significant others of several top girls.

Bits & Bytes: Anja the Divine

January 5th, 2011 |Posted by Betty


Anja and Sasha by Stephen Lee on Frockwriter.

Besides her four campaigns so far this season (including the beautiful Fendi by Karl) and her recent Pirelli showing, Anja Rubik is having a pretty wonderful month. We wish her and the dashingly handsome Sasha Knezevic congratulations on their engagement. Reading Frockwriter’s intimate and honest interview with Anja reaffirms why we and everyone else love this gracious young woman.

Fashion

If you missed Anna Della Russo’s sexy Italian accent, see it here on Showstudio. See one of Anna’s (and ours!) favorite editorials from Vogue Italia.

As Vogue Paris gets ready to name Carine Roitfeld’s successor, take a peek at some of Ms Roitfeld’s best moments of the decade.

Miscellaneous

Help NY photographers Idris and Tony fund their Native American project that would give people a rare look inside this culture.

We ADORE Gordon Espinet. Congratulations to Gordon for being named Senior Vice President at MAC (nice people do win in fashion). (WWD Subscription required)

Models

We can’t reiterate it enough: please get help if you see yourself getting like this. A tragic ending to a young life.
