Pirelli’s Passion

November 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The Pirelli Calendaris a time honored tradition and every year they turn up the heat another notch with the calendar’s blend of haute fashion and sensuality. This year’s cal is a collaboration amongst industry legends with Steven Meisel shooting, Carine Roitfeld styling and Pat McGrath and Guido Palau providing make up and hair. With a team that illustrious you expect only the very best and the final images deliver that level of quality. If the end result seems even more fashion forward than usual, it’s no accident, “I didn’t want to make a conceptual calendar,” says Meisel “or link it to some particular location, but rather to create 12 posters in which women, in all their sensuality, are the absolute protagonists of 12 very different images. Since I wanted to limit the use of clothes and accessories and since I had absolute creative freedom, I found it very exciting to play with the colors, the makeup, and the materials. It was a very rewarding experience.”

Take a first look inside the calendar’s gorgeous shots of Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, Sasha Luss and Anna Ewers below.

Campaign Season!

November 14th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Miu Miu
Ph. Jamie Hawkesworth

Jamie Hawkesworth breathes new life into Miu Miu‘s seasonal campaign with his colorful shots of Natalie Westling juxtaposed against natural shots of abstract landscapes and faded barns. Hawkesworth’s use of color creates parallels between studio shots of Miuccia Prada’s sixties influenced collection of paisleys and mod shapes with the rustic imagery of his outdoor work – together it makes for one of the season’s most striking ads.

Prada

In an enigmatic garden, Prada presents its Fall/ Winter 2015 resort advertising campaign. New faces Adrienne Jüliger, Ine Neefs and Moya Palk pose for photographer Steven Meisel in this interesting composition. The 70s influenced resort wares with their top stitching, boxy skirts and belted dresses show of the casual & feminine side of the Prada look. Meisel’s series of monochrome portraits gives the collection a majestic feeling, even in the shots that call to mind Village of the Damned.

The Halloween Edit

October 31st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion has always held Halloween in a special esteem. Of all the holidays it allows for the most outlandish changes and transformations which means it is right up fashion’s alley. As such there are countless editorials that serve to inspire a bit of seasonal cheer, or at least serve as appropriate fodder for Halloween costumes. Take a look back at 10 editorials that make us think of all-Hallows eve and share your favorite spooky or kooky fashion story in the comments.

01. Ph. Tim Walker
Publication: Harper’s Bazaar
Who better to look to on Halloween than legendary filmmaker (and master of the spooky story) Tim Burton? Bazaar’s fashion trip through Burton’s filmography is a creepy classic.

Halloween3

02. Ph. Jean-Francois Campos
Publication: Flair
Campos’ Nosferatu-esque zombies might not be as scary as the characters on The Walking Dead but it made for a great spooky editorial.

Halloween1H5

03. Ph. Steven Klein (Art Partner)
Publication: Candy Magazine
There are quite a few Steven Klein stories that could be considered Halloween ready, but his fantastical male pregnancy saga for Candy is probably the most outlandish.

Halloween5

04. Ph. Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello
Publication: Numéro
Sofia & Mauro took inspiration from Divine for this out there story that captures all the kitschy goodness of John Waters’ over the top film.

Halloween1

05. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: American Vogue
The way in which each and every model on this story took on a classic rock persona was downright inspirational – Omhyra as Prince, Karolina Kurkova as Marilyn Manson, Sophie Dahl as Debbie Harry – the work by Pat McGrathGrace Coddington and Orlando Pita on this story was nothing short of iconic.

Halloween2

06. Ph. Peter Lindbergh
Publication: Vogue Paris
Some of fashion’s own characters make for incredible costumes, case in point Sasha P morphing into John Galliano for Vogue Paris.

Halloween6

07. Ph. Thomas Lagrange (Total Management)
Publication: Vogue Japan
You can’t have a Halloween roundup without a little vampirism and LaGrange’s slick beauty story puts a chic twist on bloodsucking.

Halloween1H6

08. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: Vogue Italia
The inspiration for Meisel’s ‘The Discipline of Fashion’ was Ethel Granger, a woman who tightlaced for years in order to achieve a 13 inch waist! You don’t need to go that far to get into the story or the incredible, unnerving visuals.

Halloween1H1

09. Ph. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
Publication: V Magazine
A before and after of epic proportions where Eniko, Anja and Raquel are transformed via the use of Paddy Hartley’s transparent face masks. The clear plastic and cutouts distort the wearers face by changing its proportions in ways that range from beautiful to grotesque.

Halloween1H2

10. Ph. Craig McDean
Publication: American Vogue
Before everyone was running out to grab their Avengers costume, Coco Rocha was playing fashion superhero in the pages of Vogue with this memorable McDean story.

Halloween1H3

Isabeli Fontana.
Steven Meisel.
Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele.
Vogue Italia.

The Brazilian bombshell flamencos onto the cover of Vogue Italia with an expressive shot that showcases her peerless posing ability. No one moves quite like Isabeli so it’s no wonder Meisel enlisted her for his spirited tribute to Maria Felix. Dancer Timo Nunez joins Isabeli for the image and editorial, adding a sensual energy to the images and showcasing some jaw-dropping moves in Gordon von Steiner‘s accompanying film.
