American Blonde

October 14th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

W Magazine American Blonde from models.com on Vimeo.

The myth of the American Blonde is brought to life by Hugh Lippe and William Town for W Magazine with an atmospheric new film. Shot against an industrial backdrop the film tells the story of a mysterious blonde beauty who sweeps into town and seduces every person she crosses – even when they’re only watching her on CCTV. Naturally, the story doesn’t play out in a straightforward fashion – subtle nods to surveillance culture and the gritty underground films of the 70s create a vibe that gives the film its hint of danger. As always Anna delivers, providing just the right mix of sensuality and confidence to keep viewers captivated until the final frame.

Director Hugh Lippe on American Blonde : We (William Town and I) sat down with the task of creating something unique for W’s media section. Throughout writing the treatment, a conversation began regarding the process of ‘image making’ and the dynamic of fashion videos. I believe at one point, after much discussion, we said, “%*$#-it, lets make a ‘rough’ film look cinematic…”. Anna, a German native, is stunningly gorgeous. She the type of model that can work couture along side the most interesting, sharp and stunning androgynous models, yet a guy from any geographic point will take their eyes off the road to ‘check her out’. She embodies a sentiment to me reminiscent of the supermodels in the 80’s, they were ‘hot’, a poster on the wall. Once we put this German beauty through our the ‘process’ she in turn became the ‘American Blonde’.

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.

Sheer Force

August 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When it comes to elegant, icy blondes Anja Rubik and Daria Strokous have the market cornered, so it’s wonderful to see them together in the pages of W Magazine‘s September issue looking pristine. Roe Ethridge shoots and Giovanna Battaglia styles this sumptuous tribute to sheer separates. With plenty of skin on display and Battaglia providing her signature eclectic glamour, the story has a lot going for it fashion wise. Etheridge’s saturated colors give each image a vibrancy that brings out tiniest of details – be they a bejeweled butterfly brooch on Anja, or Viki Rutsch (Exposure NY)’s vintage-chic set design. For their part Anja and Daria provide the edit with a vampy intensity that makes the lingerie inspired looks seem powerful rather than dainty.

Raquel Renaissance

August 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

In the pantheon of essential models, Raquel Zimmermann reigns supreme. With her elegant features and powerful presence in front of the camera Raquel has become a standard bearer and industry icon – after a brief break Zimmermann has stepped back onto the scene, re-teaming with the powerful photographers whom she’s frequently collaborated with and creating a wealth of  impressive editorial and advertising imagery. David SimsSteven MeiselMert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) and Mario Sorrenti (Art Partner) have all worked with Zimmerman recently and the results have been impressive. While only time will tell what’s yet to come for Ms. Zimmermann one thing is certain – we’ll be seeing a lot of her in the coming months.

Supernormal

August 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) ditch their superglossy style in favor of the naturalistic in this picturesque story from W Magazine‘s star studded September issue. The glamour is still there (it’s hard to shoot a cast this gorgeous without infusing some glamour into the images) but the focus is on the normal, unfussy charm of t-shirts, jeans and hoodies. Led by Kate Moss the beautiful cast poses understated pieces chosen by Edward Enninful, stripped of the gowns and finery the group looks at completely at ease – more like a gathering of good friends than a group of the world’s top models. Daria Werbowy, Mariacarla Boscono, Raquel Zimmermann, Saskia de Brauw, Lara Stone, Suvi Koponen, Meghan Collison, Anna Ewers, Mica Arganaraz, Daan van der Deen, Filip Hrivnak and Steve Milatos make for a gorgeous group – especially in the shots where they’re sporting skivvies and smiles.

Banal Plus

July 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The normcore trend has been the subject of much debate – is it chic, is it lazy, is it even a legitimate trend at all? Craig McDean and Edward Enninful take on the look in the pages of W Magazine with an editorial that mixes the best in designer gear with everyday staples like Adidas tube socks and white clogs – the kind of items you’re more likely to find in the closets of athletes than amongst the accessories utilized in a fashion story. With boy short bowl cuts by James Pecis (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management) and minimal makeup by Fulvia Farolfi (ArtList Paris) models Daiane ConteratoGrace MaharyAymeline ValadeManuela FreyKatlin AasAmanda Murphy and Fei Fei Sun look equal parts haute and banal.
