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.

A Furry Affair

August 1st, 2013 |Posted by models.com

It’s that time of year again, summer is coming to an end and the highly anticipated September issues will soon be taking over the magazine shelves. Vogue Japan has Cara Delevingne on its cover, but let’s set our focus inside the magazine, on Catherine McNeil and her mile-long legs. In “A Furry Affair”, photographed by Emma Summerton, McNeil is captured looking perfectly polished and sophisticated in glam furs, strappy sandals and satchels, a chic black bob, and deep red lips, and holds a beautifully mysterious gaze away from the camera. Take a look at the breathtaking editorial below, which completely captures the ‘wow’ factor of the anticipated issue.

mdc ♥s: crème de la crème

June 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

longlivelera

The lovely Lera Sheremeta slathers herself in creamy goodness – edible and inedible in this shot by Thomas Lagrange (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists)

Given the amounts of skin you’re sure to be revealing this summer it makes sense to moisturize each and every inch. Take a look at our picks for the best and most decadent creams, oils and lotions for face and body.

row1a

LULAH BODY LOTIONS & HAND CREAM – Luxury doesn’t have to come a high cost, so our first selections are not only moisturizing they’re wallet friendly. The latest from body care legend’s Thymes, the Lulah line focuses on fresh scents that enveloping and creamy formulas that hydrate. Our personal favorite – the vitamin E and shea butter packed hand creams.

CLINIQUE DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT MOISTURIZER PLUS – For over 40 years Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion has been a favorite of makeup artists and beauty aficionados, but the revamped DDML+ puts a new spin on the original. Loaded with modern ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, this 2.0 version brings the classic into the future. / Available in August 

SUNDAY RILEY JUNO BODY – The cult facial oil from Sunday Riley is already a favorite of everyone from Diane Kendal to Blake Lively, so it comes as no surprise that the body version is every bit as good. Composed from a variety of natural oils (watermelon seed, Camilla seed, pomegranate oil,  grape seed oil and more) Juno helps to firm skin and protect against the environmental toxins that contribute to aging.

row1

KIEHL’S CREME DE CORPS BODY BUTTER – Rich, thick, whipped and decadent as they come, Kiehl’s soy and honey variant of their popular Creme de Corps line is the gold standard of body butters.

AESOP PETITGRAIN HYDRATING GEL – Whether your shave has cut a little too close, or you’ve been out baking in the sun, Aesop’s refreshing gel is good for what ails you. The versatile formula takes the edge off a wide variety of skin issues, while feeling cool and lightweight.

TATA HARPER REVITALIZING BODY OIL – Here’s to truth in advertising, Tata Harper’s aromatic body elixir does exactly what it says on the bottle, it revitalizes tired and dull skin, making it look lush and supple without leaving behind a greasy residue.

The strongest looks of the season come to life, in Sundsbø’s streamlined interpretation of athletic chic. Clad in barely there, Cortina selected pieces from Marc Jacobs, Azzedine Alaia and Prada, Andrea cuts a fine figure against the crystalline blue sky backdrop. Running in Tom Ford’s mile high heels isn’t a full-fledge sport yet, but Sundsbø’s beautiful shots  manage to make such impossible feats look downright appealing.

CHECKER CHIC

We’ve been seeing a lot of Marc Jacobs’ mod influenced collection for Louis Vuitton, so it is no surprised to see it showing up on the covers of two stylish publications this month. Numero‘s sleek image by Sebastian Kim gives you two sides of of Nadja Bender, while Vogue Japan offers a girlish take on Jacobs’ designs with a coquettish image of Lindsey Wixson by Patrick Demarchelier. Both pictures present a compelling fashion moment, so it really boils down to whether you prefer your Vuitton girl seductive, or syrupy sweet.

NADJA ON NUMERO OR LINDSEY ON VOGUE JAPAN – WHICH VERSION OF VUITTON DO YOU PREFER?


TEASER PLEASER

Dansk returns with two images designed to whet readers’ appetites for more of the famed Danish magazine’s blend of art and fashion. Nadja Bender shows up again (there isn’t a magazine you won’t find Nadja in these days) looking effortlessly cool in Hasse Nielsen‘s black and white shot, but the image that grabs our attention is that of the aptly named Adonis Bosso taken by Raf Stahelin. Dressed in a debonair fedora and head to metallics, Bosso cuts an impressive figure – we can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

NADJA OR ADONIS – WHICH DANSK TEASER CATCHES YOUR EYE?


BRAZILIAN BONUS!

Giampaolo Sgura and Anna Dello Russo are at it again! This time the duo creates four wildly different covers for Vogue Brasil featuring Magdalena FrackowiakIzabel GoulartBette Franke and Mirte Maas. Each cover captures a completely different mood within the sexy & chic theme: from the all out glamour of Magda’s shot, Mirte’s full on Dello Russo eclecticism, Izabel’s vibrant  cover image and the purity of Bette’s Prada collection image. Each cover has its merits, but we can’t help but think that Bette’s austere Miuccia madness feels freshest.

BETTE? IZABEL? MAGDALENA? MIRTE? WHICH VOGUE BRAZIL COVER GETS YOUR VOTE?
