Style & Substance

August 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

It doesn’t take much to make Daria Werbowy look good, but Josh Olins brings out Daria’s best in the pages of WSJ‘s fall fashion edition. The globe-trekking supermodel looks luxe in Nicolas Ghesquière‘s debut Vuitton collection and a series of other looks selected by Alastair McKimm. With a laid-back grace that is evident whether she’s wearing jeans or draped in furs, Werbowy pulls off the looks admirably lending the story a seventies style cool that makes even the priciest pieces seem down to earth.


Read the WSJ’s accompanying interview with Daria where she reveals her surprising choice for a second career.

September Reign

July 30th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

By now we’ve all heard the story about celebrities taking precious magazine cover spots away from models, but this September it appears the tides have turned. After years of stars on the front pages more and more magazines are looking to models for their biggest fashion issues. British Vogue boasts Cara Delevingne looking sleek in Nicolas Ghesquière‘s collection for Louis Vuitton in an image by Mario Testino (Art Partner), while Elle UK enlists a Prada clad Kate Upton for fashion forward shot by Matt Jones. Though the September covers are only just starting to debut you can already see which collections are going to be inecapable for the next few months.  WSJ provides a fetching seventies style image of Daria Werbowy by Josh Olins that also puts Ghesquière’s wares to good use. In keeping with the trend The New York Times’ T Magazine reaches for Prada, sheathing Vanessa Axente in one of the brand’s oversized coats in a strong cover image by Craig McDean.

Easy Breezy

June 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

WSJ continues its traditional of excellence in editorial with a refreshing story by Daniel Riera (Jed Root). Shot along the shores of Jones Beach and featuring layered pre-fall looks styled by Vanessa Traina (Management + Artists) the editorial is a crisp and cool take on dressing for the days in-between seasons. Stephanie Joy Field is gamine in lightweight sweaters and minimalist separates accented by flat loafers and understated jewelry. When paired with the backdrop of wood shingle beach houses and clear blue water the effortlessness of these pared down looks shines through; this is simplicity at its best and Riera’s images capture this mood in chic style.

Well Suited

April 28th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

WSJ continues its tradition of luxurious elegance with an impressive fashion story starring Liu Wen. Shot by Daniel Riera (Jed Root) and styled by Sara Moonves the stripped down story focuses on the season’s taste for minimal menswear influenced styles. Classic business dressing, but rendered modern via impeccable tailoring and a feminine touch that Moonves brings to her selection of crisp suits and minimalist jewelry. As always Liu Wen brings a regal dignity to every shot and manages to look alluring in even the most serious of workwear.

Gold Rush

January 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Andreea Diaconu.
Josh Olins.
Clare Richardson.
WSJ.

A fashion forward trip to the elegant Costa Careyes on Mexico’s Pacific shore makes for an inspired editorial. Girl of the moment Andreea shines in Olins’ imagery and features prominently throughout the issue. Author and man about town, Derek Blasberg interviews the brainy beauty about her college plans, career ambitions and the unexpected twists along the way, including the story behind her memorable collaborations with Mario Sorrenti. “The plan was for me to make enough money for four years of col­lege, and then I’d walk away…” Diaconu quips to Blasberg, “I had just about saved enough and was thinking of quitting, and then I got a call from my agent: ‘Mario Sorrenti booked you for Italian Vogue.’”

Face Off: Daft Darlings

November 6th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

French robo-duo Daft Punk have a way of showing up alongside gorgeous top models and while promoting their album, Random Access Memories they’ve made magazine appearances something of a habit. This month they share cover space with Gisele Bundchen on the frontpage of WSJ in a shot by Terry Richardson, but it wasn’t too long ago that they were in the pages of Vogue alongside Karlie Kloss. Add in a CR Fashion Book story back in August with Milla Jovovich, ads for Saint Laurent, Dazed covers, L’Uomo Vogue and well you get the picture.

But which model pulls off posing alongside the world’s most famous robots?

Who is taking it to that next level Gisele, Karlie or Milla?

Double Vision: Celine

November 28th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one designer who knows how to get women (and men) excited it is Phoebe Philo and her continued success at Celine is a testament to her ability to tap into the pulse of what women want. For F/W Philo went in a graphic direction, with primary shades, bold color blocking and a mixes of texture, from matte leather to plush fur. One of the most editorially beloved pieces from the Celine collection was the Geometric Intarsia Sweater, a playful clash of mink and leather that succinctly merged the essence of the entire collection into a single item. If another designer were to throw together that many things on one top it might seem overwrought, or ridiculous but Phoebe Philo keeps the look minimal.

Most stylists didn’t stray too far from that ideal, pairing the sweaters with either the runway approved striped trousers, or an equally understated crisp white skirt. Most of the time what stands out are the accessories and add ons, be they gleaming silver cuffs, avant garde headgear or the label’s coveted Trapeze Bag. Take a look at the way in which several different teams interpreted the Celine look and subsequently the sleek mood of the season.
