The model as the muse is a recurring theme in fashion and Glass Magazine features industry icon Carmen Kass for the cover of their latest issue in Summer’s key looks and fine jewelry. In the highly stylized black-and-white editorial, Bojana Tatarska beautifully shoots Kass in Dior, Givenchy, and Stella McCartney styled by Editor-in-Chief, Nicola Kavanagh. Standing to “honour” the warm season, the issue has a little bit of everything from their new venture into the world of design and architecture, to an exposé on esteemed photographer Fan Ho, to the humanitarian efforts of four professionals that are fighting to rid the World of HIV.

Champions of Earth

April 22nd, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

 

In honor of Earth Day and the planet we inhabit, Models.com decided to reflect on a few of the industry’s most eco-friendly champions. These are the recognizable faces campaigning, not for customers, but for sustainability and environmental ethics, along with a simple compassion for Mother Nature. Forty-five years after the first Earth Day there is still much work to be done. Beneath the recent issues of social dissidence and global dilemmas, there is the simplest cause of them all–Earth! Here are few of fashion’s favorite sustainability advocates.

Gisele Bundchen, who recently retired from the runway, is an outspoken and longtime supporter of the environmental cause. She’s a UNEP ambassador amongst her many activism achievements and in 2014 the Rainforest Alliance added the Brazilan Super to its board of directors.

“Today is Earth Day! Let’s love, honor and take care of our beautiful Mother Earth. We are One. Our well being depends on how we take care of our planet. This is our home, the only one we have.”

Italian fashion designer Stefano Pilati of Ermenegildo Zegna donates five percent of net profits towards the Oasi Zegna initiative and has committed the luxury brand to going green and creating something more eco-conscious by using recycled yarns and natural materials. Fittingly, his AW 15 show took place in mock-forest equipped with lush greenery.

We are responsible for the resources that we use and the impact that we have. We are always exploring new and innovative ways to become more sustainable.”

Stella’s Girl Power

January 16th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Impressive women are the focus of Stella McCartney’s SS15 campaign and its carefree imagery. McCartney handpicked rising star photographer, Harley Weir to shoot frequent brand muse Natalia Vodianova. The ads mark the 7th time Vodianova has fronted a campaign for McCartney, but the very first time Weir is at the helm. The streamlined photographs which alternately present Natalia rising from the ocean waves ala Birth of Venus and clutching signature pieces from the label’s popular Falabella range of bags, make us hope this won’t be the last time Weir shoots the ads.

Stella Unzipped

July 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The dream team of Kate Moss and Stella McCartney go together like pb & j – the duo are close friends, Moss is frequently seen wearing McCartney’s sleek earth-friendly wares on her off time and they’re close friends to boot. Moss has been the face of McCartney’s seasonal campaigns six times before so it’s unsurprising to see her in the new fall ads, but the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) images keep things interesting by juxtaposing Moss in the fall collection with shots of glaciers and zippers to create an appealing collage effect.

Natural Wonder

April 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Sometimes the simplest styles are the very best and in Will Davidson‘s refined story for Vogue Australia, senior fashion editor Christine Centenera creates a pared down look set against a woodland backdrop. Crista Cober‘s lush beauty comes to the forefront as she sports minimal styles from Stella McCartney, Hermès, Céline and Josh Goot. Working with a palette of neutrals and easy going separates like transparent button-down shirts or menswear influenced overcoats Centenera creates a modern wardrobe fit for everywoman. Combining these basic pieces with the serene natural setting and Davidson’s dreamy photographic style shows that even the most uncomplicated look can imbue the wearer with a powerful allure.

Added bonus: Davidson does double duty within the issue shooting this editorial and the impressive cover story of seminal Aussie pop diva, Kylie Minogue who he captures in a grand, romantic style.

Through the Lens

March 21st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The legacy of Linda McCartney lives on in the pages of British Vogue with an atmospheric story by Glen Luchford (Art Partner) reminding us all of the celebrated photographer and animal rights activist’s natural charms.

Stylist Jane How (Art Partner) recreates Linda’s signature style with a mix of archival pieces from Linda’s wardrobe alongside new designs by daughter, Stella McCartney. Luchford’s dreamy snapshots serve to compliment the easygoing, late 70s vibe of the fashions, while Suvi Koponen takes the lead role capturing Linda’s spirt and ebullient energy.

The accompanying film with its Wings soundtrack and home movie feel gives a complete portrait of Linda as a mother, image maker and enduring icon. See the teaser film below and the full film in the Vogue UK iPad app.

Laundry Service

August 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

As some of the most divisive and easily recognizable pieces of the fall/winter season, Céline‘s bold plaid prints have become a focal point in editorials the past few months. Whether you love the red and blue tartan, or find they resemble the ubiquitous laundry bags found at your local bodega it is impossible to deny their presence in the pages of fashion glossies. Though most stylists don’t stray too far from the runway interpretation of the look, Philo’s creations remain compelling, especially when juxtaposed with an interesting background or unique set. In Steven Meisel‘s Vogue Italia shots they are pit against a swirling arm chair by designer Tord Boontje and the pairing brings out the best of both statement pieces. Likewise the seeing the Celine plaid opposite Stella McCartney‘s version of the same in Vogue Russia provides a concise overview of one of fall’s key trends. Naturally, there are also moments when all you need is a great model and a few more pieces from the collection, case in point Tao Okamoto‘s new cover of Vogue Japan which provides an ideal showcase for Tao and those coveted thigh high boots.
