Edie Campbell continues to break the mold. Fresh off the heels of a stellar season that included opening Marc Jacobs’ final show for Louis Vuitton, walking the walk for everyone from Calvin Klein to Balenciaga, Edie Campbell is making a splash in the editorial pages this month. After snagging yet another Steven Meisel shot cover of Vogue Italia, Edie finds herself on the front page of the new Vogue Germany in a striking shot by Daniel Jackson. In the image Edie’s famous jet black mullet is tousled and she sports Lanvin’s gold ‘Happy’ necklace – considering her career trajectory these past few months it’s safe to say that happiness is an emotion Edie’s very familiar with.

Garden of Delights

August 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Julia Noni creates an atmospheric story for Vogue Germany‘s September issue, creating images filled with color, life and artistry. Jeneil Williams stars in Noni’s arresting images wearing a mix of seasonal knitwear selected by stylist Kathrin Schiffner, offering a taste of fall’s practical staples but giving them an ethereal twist. As always Jeneil brings power and sensuality to each image she appears in and Noni’s richly saturated style pops right off the page.

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.

Cover to Cover

January 14th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s cover vs. cover in this roundup of the month’s fashion hits. Let us know which covers were your favorites and which one’s didn’t quite make the cut.

ANDROGYNOUS APPEAL

Both Saskia de Brauw and Milla Jovovich have an innately stylish vibe that sets them apart from other cover stars, so seeing their faces peering out from the newsstand is always a treat. On February’s Vogue Russia Saskia provides a bit of androgynous edge to Paolo Roversi‘s moody blue imagery in a serious yet sensual cover. Milla J on the other hand is looking resplendent in Saint Laurent Paris on Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin‘s New York themed cover of the new Vogue Paris.

SASKIA ON VOGUE RUSSIA OR MILLA ON VOGUE PARIS – WHICH COVER GETS YOUR VOTE?


2 SIDES OF CONSTANCE

February brings double the Constance Jablonski for you to enjoy, with two very different Vogue covers. Vogue Germany‘s Alexi Lubomirski (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) image offers a sultry vision of the Estee Lauder face, complete with dark lips and a retro chic bob worthy of a classic film siren. Patrick Demarchelier shows another side of Constance on Vogue China‘s springy cover shot, a simple portrait that is about as pretty as it gets.

SULTRY CONSTANCE OR FLOWERY CONSTANCE – EVERYBODY WINS!


BATTLE OF THE BLONDES

It is hard to find a flaw on Scarlett Johansson, but how does Elle UK‘s Rankin cover with the Avengers beauty compare to their one and only Anja Rubik? Both stars are clad in minimalist chic, both are looking phenomenal, but ultimately Anja’s cover is the more dynamic of the two. Naturally that means it is also the more difficult one to get your hands on, if you’re in London head on over to Selfridges to get this limited edition Elle cover.

SCARLETT’S ELLE COVER OR ANJA’S ELLE COVER – WHICH GETS YOUR VOTE?


THE TEASERS

LOVE Magazine
s new ‘Clean Issue’ may not have debut just yet, but they really know how to amp up the anticipation. The teaser shots of models of the moment, Cara Delevingne and Edie Campbell by Sølve Sundsbø are elegant without losing any of LOVE’s trademark cool.

mdc ♥s : fragrant fantasies

November 20th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Kati Nescher is one of our favorite dark beauties -  Photography by Camilla Akrans (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) for Vogue Germany | See the entire story in the database.

The holidays are right around the corner and soon it will be time to treat everyone you know to something special. In the meantime though, why not treat yourself to one of the season’s sexy, mysterious and downright dangerous fragrances. What better way to spice up the cold weather and add a little glamour to the equation. Take a look at our favorites, from the coy coquettishness of By Kilian to the overwhelmingly intense decadence of Serge Lutens.

BY KILIAN BAMBOO HARMONY – We’re used to Kilian Hennessy treating us to bombastic, larger than life fragrances befitting heroines of classic literature, screen sirens and divas alike, so we were surprised to find his latest is a subtly sexy blend of mimosa, bergamot and neroli combined with oakmoss. The scent is meant to convey the experience of a sip of white tea and as such it is calming, delicate and peaceful. The darkness emerges after the dry down, when the spices, fig and Maté Essence emerge and take things one step further – after all, it wouldn’t be a Kilian scent without a little drama.

CHANEL COCO NOIR – How do you re-imagine a classic? The original Coco is the fragrant equivalent of a Little Black Dress, elegant, timeless and universally appealing, so much so that at first it was hard to imagine anything could compete with that legacy. Rather than attempting a Coco 2.0, Chanel’s in-house perfumer Jacques Polge, provides us with a whole new journey; skillfully merging rose, jasmine, patchouli and sandalwood into a scent that is seductive and modern.

SERGE LUTENS SARRASINS – Serge Lutens is master of the idiosyncratic fragrance and with Sarrasins he creates a lush vision of jasmine that is intoxicating. Lutens’ ultra-chic cloche scents were previously only available at the line’s boutique in Les Salons du Palais Royale, but they’ve crossed the pond and are now available stateside at Barney’s Madison Avenue location. Take our word for it, they are well worth either trip – but if you can’t make the voyage give them a call at 212-833-2425.

TOM FORD NOIR – Gentlemen, start your engines. Tom Ford delivers another surefire hit via his latest scent Noir, a suitably sophisticated take on men’s fragrance with unexpected notes. Bulgarian rose, violets and nutmeg make for a sweeter, more sensuous blend, one that is sure to be appreciated across gender boundaries.

MARC JACOBS DAISY INTENSE – Just in case you’re not quite ready to give up on the light, airy florals that signify Spring – Marc Jacobs has got you covered. The deeper, darker version of his perennial favorite, Daisy is a girly treat packed with strawberries and gardenias but the added musk, vanilla and woods make things far more inline with the season at hand.

BYREDO APOCALYPTIC - With a name like Apocalyptic Byredo’s candle is setting the bar pretty high, but fear not Ben Gorham and co. manage to live up to that fateful moniker. This is the end of the world as imagined by the ultimate optimist – black raspberry, fire iron (they even got the metallic tinge just right) and birch wood. You’ll have to smell it for yourself to get the full experience, but try it on say December 21st.

JO MALONE DARK AMBER & GINGER LILY – Wearable incense coupled with amber and ginger – one of our all time favorites. Maybe it is a little early to start throwing around the words ‘modern classic’ but this is certainly a great touch of darkness for fall. Plus, since it is a Jo Malone, it can be layered over other perfumes to create something wholly original – we like it with the icy White Jasmine and Mint.

DIPTYQUE VOLUTES – Iris, tobacco, honey and myrrh – it is hard to think of notes that are headier, or more appealing than that. Volutes is all about the fantastical, fragrant journeys that perfume can take us on. Even the copy, with its appealing descriptions of “enigmatic elegant women leaning on the rail on top deck, indulging in the pleasure of Khedive cigarettes” is wonderfully transportive. The fragrance is top notch in true Diptyque fashion. Put down the candles and give this a sniff next time you pop into the store.

CREED LOVE IN BLACK – Inspired by Jackie O and filled with flowers that only bloom at night – does it get more elegant than that?

Double Vision: Comme des Garçons

November 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Some collections are made for editorial greatness, on the runway they’re good but when a talented team gets ahold of things the stories those garments can tell are limitless. One collection that has found new life editorially is Comme des Garcons‘ excellent fall/winter showing. The exaggerated proportions, bold patterns and plays on dimension have made for some truly striking imagery. Stylists seem to love playing with Rei Kawakubos artful creations, and there are a few looks that keep popping up in magazines month after month. Whether they’re worn by the likes of style legend Iris Apfel, transformed into samurai gear for Meghan Collison, or made part of David Sims‘ stark imagery, it is impossible to miss a CdG piece. Take a look back at some of the most memorable uses of the collection thus far and see how different stylists dealt with some of the more popular pieces.
