The holiday season comes early with Walker’s delightful new covers for Vogue China. Walker’s minimal images offer a stripped down take on fantastical fashion, with the focus solely on the clothes, the girls and decorative calligraphy on the right. The resulting covers are elegant, evocative and easily rank amongst the best of the year. (casting by Larissa Gunn)

Just Watch!

October 10th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Liu Wen.
David Sims.
Vogue China.

The Apple Watch on the cover is getting a great deal of media attention, but don’t forget who’s selling that Céline + Apple combination and making the luxury tech piece look downright essential. November is all about Liu Wen‘s first solo Vogue China cover – the Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin anniversary issue covers were gorgeous but several other girls were featured. Liu owns the stately David Sims image with a quiet power and in the accompanying cover story she’s just as good.

LV Overload!

August 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one collection that is getting editorial love this September it is Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut for Louis Vuitton. While LVMH is generally no slouch in the editorial department, Ghesquire’s work has gone that extra mile – appearing on the cover of or within the pages of almost every single September issue thus far. For fans of the designer’s work the constant sight of logo printed belts and playful dresses has been an appealing constant thread amidst the past few months of editorials and covers, but how much is too much? Take a look at the line’s recent front page appearances and decide. Stylists show no signs of slowing down with their Vuitton obsession so you can expect to see the iconic luxury label rack up even more covers as the month winds down.

Bohemian Rhapsody

June 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The bohemian days of the late 60s come alive again in the pages of Vogue China with Kati Nescher and Natalie Westling playing a pair of luxe hippies in Mikael Jansson‘s sumptuous cover story. With crowns of flowers adorning their waist length tresses styled by Anthony Turner (Art Partner) and an array of floaty maxi dresses selected by Anastasia Barbieri (Art Partner), Kati and Natalie look authentically retro. Mark Carrasquillo (Art Partner) provides the final beauty touch adding on smoky eyes and pale lips into the equation to complete the mood.

The Shining

May 14th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

It goes without saying that Yumi Lambert is a sparkling presence in editorials, but in the latest Vogue China she literally gleams. Metallic cosmetics take center stage in Kenneth Willardt‘s (Exposure NY) dynamic story featuring Lambert and makeup artist Lisa Houghton pulls out all the stops. A bold metallic eye shines as brightly as stacks of Repossi rings, while a dramatic silver shadow compliments a Alexander McQueen headdress. Stylist Tina Chai and Houghton create a uniform look that merges the wildest fashions with some truly incredible futuristic face paint. Diego Da Silva adds in an array of otherworldly wigs in shades of navy and azure to finish up a look that melds cartoon with couture.

Orange Crush

April 14th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

There is only one color that matters in Jem Mitchell‘s striking new Vogue China story, but what a color it is. Juicy, pop off the page orange features in every look, covering Shu Pei Qin from head to toe and even giving her a fiery new coif for good measure. Jeanine Lobell paints Shu Pei in citrusy shades while Neil Moodie (New York: D + V Management, London: D + V Management ) provides the aforementioned neon tresses. Mitchell’s saturated imagery takes you up close capturing each look in all it’s vivid beauty.

Desert Song

March 24th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Boo George.
Beat Bolliger (Art Partner).
Isabeli Fontana.
Vogue China.

In the midst of the dessert a vision of glamour emerges. Isabeli lends her showgirl panache to George’s atmospheric images as Bolliger works in an array of eye-catching pieces from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Agent Provocateur. Sequins, marabou feathers and other exquisite details abound but when these luxurious trappings are paired with the faded, dreamlike style of the photographs it creates a haunting mood.

Cover Confidential

March 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Feburary and March are big business for fashion magazines with glossies often debuting some of their best and brightest content during these months focused on spring collections, renewal and change. Take a look back at some of the most interesting covers from the boundlessly creative, to the simply beautiful.

PURE BEAUTY

Antidote Magazine‘s romance issue boasted multiple covers by Cuneyt Akeroglu featuring some of the world’s most beautiful women. United by their simple yet effective photography and their chic take on the magazine’s pristine subjects these covers were something special.

As one of fashion’s coolest faces Leona Binx Walton is typically photographed looking grungy, avant garde or off-kilter. Her Self Service cover with it’s effective beauty statement and clean layout showed another side. Collier Schorr portrait brings out Binx’s beauty, while maintaining her character.

THE BEST OF CELEBRITY

There are few actresses as effervescent as Marion Cotillard and Interview Magazine‘s March cover captured the La Vie En Rose star’s elegant side with a shot by Craig McDean that positively crackles with good ol’ fashioned glamour. Styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Christophe Danchaud and a 40s coif by Sam McKnight the image strikes the right balance between retro film siren and modern glamour - as does the accompanying fashion story. 

On the flip side, Dazed & Confused‘s rough and tumble cover of Scarlett Johansson finds the star’s inner bad girl and brings it to the forefront with a vibrant shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby . The combo of red background and Saint Laurent biker jacket and Scar-Jo’s glare makes for an appealing contrast to the typical smiling celebrity glamour shot.

MINIMAL MARVELS

You can’t go wrong with a picture of Daria Werbowy and The Last Magazine served up an epic large format image the superstar looking foreboding for it’s spring issue –  Mikael Jansson‘s in your face shot captures Werbowy at her rawest and best.

The Gentlewoman always errs on the side of minimalism, but the pulpy red cover of Vivienne Westwood by Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) was the perfect merger of timelessness and modernity.

CREATIVITY RULES

Nick Knight‘s trippy photography has always struck a chord with surrealists and on the cover of GARAGE‘s spring/summer edition he twists and morphs Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne into unbidden creatures designs that were eventually tattooed onto the skin of Garage readers – how’s that for taking things to the next level.

E.T. got a fashion makeover with Lindsey Wixson taking over the frontpage of CR Fashion Book with an expressive Sebastian Faena image that puts Wixson’s otherworldly visage to good use with a sweet nod to an 80s favorite.

DESIGNER DOMINATION

Karl Lagerfeld’s watercolor inspired spring Chanel collection has proved a hit with editors, in addition to appearing in the pages of just about every magazine imaginable his paint by numbers dresses found themselves on a variety of covers in March, most notably Vogue China, where two of the designer’s creations took center stage.

Not one to be outdone, Miuccia Prada also made a strong showing this March (and April) with a variety of painterly spring looks from her collections showing up on the cover of several different magazines.
