Fashion’s current queen of austerity is transformed into a tattooed femme fatale by the talented Shay Ashual and Lisa Butler. The film noir styling by George Cortina, coupled with a wild array of body art creates a unique new look for Ms. Strokous, while Sundsbø’s dramatic photography style provides a showcase for her posing talents. The stylized shoot offers a welcome change of pace from the usual vintage inspired edit, all while adding a hard edge to one of fashion’s most delicate beauties.

Double Vision: Clear Winner

March 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Transparency was all over the S/S13 runways and as the season draws closer it seems fitting to explore one of its dominant trends. The house whose designs exemplified the look was VALENTINO, where designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli showed a variety of pieces that utilized transparency expertly, revealing skin but keeping the demure sophistication the brand has become known for. Whether they were dazzling with delicate embroidery, or creating a sublime showcase for the body via cutouts, the duo set the standard for diaphanous dressing.

One piece in particular took the look to its logical endpoint and dazzled with its whimsical cheekiness. The PVC trenchcoat embellished with the line’s signature rockstuds has become an editorial favorite, with stylists providing their own take on the Valentino look. The trench lends itself to a myriad of different interpretations and stylists did not disappoint, creating a variety of looks that range from sensual, to avant-garde. When a garment can go from the all out sexy of Missy Rayder‘s powerful image in Numero, to the easy cool on the back of Angela Lindvall it more than proves its versatility.

Lacey Things

November 4th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Emma Summerton and Patti Wilson tackle the season’s lace trend with an elegant story for Vogue Italia. With Aline Weber sporting some of the season’s key pieces, the story hits all the right  notes. Look closely and you’ll see Ralph Lauren‘s infamous dragon dress (fresh from Rooney Mara‘s November Vogue cover) and Stella McCartney’s popular polka dot number and even a look from Nicola Formichetti‘s Mulgler reboot. Shot in Summerton’s frosty color palette and accented by Shay Ashual & Mathias van Hooff‘s hair and makeup magic, the images are pure fashion fantasy.
