Blast from the Past: Editors As Models

March 28th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Much is said about the relatively short span of most modeling careers. If you’re among the lucky few like Malgosia Bela or Naomi Campbell, you can model for decades, but most people who start their careers on the catwalk find that 15 minutes of fame comes and goes quickly. This isn’t always a bad thing, many move on to bigger and better things; you can’t see a movie without spotting a model-turned-actress and you can’t work on a fashion shoot without stumbling into someone had a modeling moment. Today we take a look at a few of the fashion editors who’ve done their share in front of the camera.

Camilla Nickerson  – Camilla has been styling since the 80s, but back in 1993 she graced the cover of Vogue Italia shot by Steven Meisel and if that doesn’t count for a model moment, we don’t know what does.

Tabitha Simmons – Shoe designer, stylist, Vogue Contributing editor – Tabitha Simmons has got a full plate on her hands, but somehow she found the time to strut down the Balenciaga runway back in Spring/Summer 02 when she was modeling. We have to say that Ms. Simmons looks right at home in those Ghesquière trousers – wouldn’t mind seeing her on back on the catwalk again if she ever gets a moment free!

Julia Sarr-Jamois Wonderland Magazine‘s Fashion Editor is a rising star and a regular on the street style blogs, where she always looks camera ready. It should come as no surprise then that she modeled in her teens in ads for brands like Diesel and Fred Perry, but switched to styling because she wanted to express herself creatively.

Grace Coddington – If you’ve Netflixed The September Issue, you know that Grace began her fashion tenure as a model for 60s superstar photographers like Avedon & Carpatian – see her 1962 Vogue cover below. Her modeling career was cut short by a car accident at 26, but she went on to innovate the industry behind the scenes at British Vogue & American Vogue.

Edward Enninful – When he was 16, Edward was spotted on the train by none other than Simon Foxton, two weeks later he was scouted by a modeling agent! By 17 he was shooting with Nick Knight and introduced to i-D’s Terry Jones – thus began one of fashion’s most prolific and interesting careers.

Arriving this week is the amazing Arthur Sales from Recife, Brazil. Made in Brazil’s Juliano who has been tracking him since Arthur walked the DSquared show back in June, calls him one of the best Brazilian kids in a long time. Onset he is apparently like Caroline Trentini reincarnated as a guy. For more pics, click here. (with Elite Milan)

Dynamic duo: Marc Jacobs and Juergen Teller; Interview reviews the Marc Jacobs advertising book and for more Juergen fans, Cathyn Horyn talks to Juergen Teller.

Watch Karl Lagerfeld shoot Baptiste Giabiconi for Purple Fashion, with a giraffe and what looks like his cell phone. See some of his editorial here.

More Baptiste news, Naomi Campbell is envious of him!!

Here’s video of Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman from the i-D shoot. They talk about the pressures of being an ethnic model in this industry. The video is amazing, watch the girls work it, i-D’s signature winks and all, while Edward Enninful talks about the beauties.

More MTA’s (model turned actor). This time, it’s a male model, Trevor Donovan, who has shot D&G with Steven Klein and A&F with Bruce Weber and is on the next 90210.

WWD calls it the return of the “himbo” but mistakenly calls it a Numero shoot by Karl Lagerfeld, when it REALLY should be Lara Stone and the boys’ DSquared campaign by Mert and Marcus… Hmph, if they need help with boys they can certainly call us.. We know all the top males there is to know.

Supreme’s showcards reverberate down in Australia.

Mariano Vivanco shoots Megan Fox for Wonderland Magazine. She’s one of the few actresses that look like they could have been a model, especially in this moody shoot. See pics and behind the scenes video.

September’s Vogue Italia editorial by Steven Meisel has re-energized and re-invigorated me in a way that no editorial has done in a long time. The messiness, the fun, the contorted faces, the in your face energy is completely exuberant and what we need during these dour times. Vive la revolution!
For the entire ed, scanned by the lovely Diciassette, see Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
