Blast from the Past: Linda Loves Chanel

April 19th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

We couldn’t help but rejoice when we saw the supermodel to end all supermodels, Linda Evangelista, showing up in the latest Chanel eyewear campaign. Of course that got us thinking about Linda’s history with the brand; can you believe she’s been working with Chanel for over twenty years now?! Have a look back at some of our favorite Linda + Chanel moments, and be sure to share yours in the comments!

Bits & Bytes: Super Yasmin

October 2nd, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Yasmin LeBon. Ph: Philip Riches for L’Officiel Netherlands, courtesy of Elite New York.

I’m going to date myself a little now by saying that Yasmin was one of my favorite 80′s supermodels. Her incredible Vogue and Elle covers (jumping! on the beach!) were some of my most remembered visuals of that long gone era. It’s of course utterly thrilling to see her comeback, with her recent work with Vogue Paris, American Vogue, i-D and Wonderland. Here’s to one of the originals!

—————————————————————————————-

Karla Otto, PR powerhouse, Karla Otto sexy Gentlewoman?

Anja Rubik is a supermodel. And an avid yoga practitioner. Sign us up right now to get those legs

Here are more pics of the AMFAR event in Milan, including Giovanna Battaglia and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, called “fashion royalty”.

For those who know Chris Rock‘s “Clear Heels” diatribe, you’ll find The Cut’s essay on Milan’s shoe of the season, pretty funny.

Aspiring photographers, get your work published in W, how COOL!

Balenciaga’s casting by Ashley Brokaw elicited some nice surprises for the week: Miranda Kerr (click here to see the 2 sides of Ms. Kerr, the sexy VS Angel and the transformation on the runway), Rasa Zukauskaite, Jenny Sinkaberg with IMG, former feed face Marlena Szoka, new faces Jacquelyn Jablonski, Mirte Maas, Patricia van der Vliet, Lisanne de Jong, Gwen Loos (Marilyn).

Balmain had Daria Werbowy in her only show (opening and closing).

Check out Cathy Horyn‘s conversation with Nicolas Ghesquiere backstage; listen to his wonderful French tinged English and of course take a look at his incredible collection: why Paris is the premier reasons they will always rule Fashion Week.

As for Rick Owens (which the Imagist loved!) he cast 4 of our favorite (and totally underrated) black models: Georgie Badiel, Kinee Diouf, Aminata Niaria and Rose Cordero.

Speaking of Miranda Kerr, she’s launching her own skincare line.

Stylist Melanie Ward‘s first collection, Blouson Noir (Black Shirt), sounds amazing.

Bad for your wallet, great for your closet. Style.com offers “Shop the looks”.

Style.com sits down with Gareth Pugh.

V Man and Showstudio are on the last legs of their male model search.

Speaking of V, how much do we love how they showcase the transformation of a fresh new Ford face, Sydney Roper. See the before and after!

Alexandre de Betak is quite a genius but now he’s officially approved by the Times who calls him “The Fellini of Fashion”.

Here’s the info for the Victoria’s Secret open casting this weekend.

Speaking of shopping: Isabel Marant, a favorite designer of the supermodels, will be opening in New York’s Soho. Isaac Mizrahi will be opening his first “shop” because of his psychic!

If you’re in Paris, go to the outdoor Vogue cover show, like Olivier Zahm did. You won’t be anywhere as fabulous as he, but you can pretend!

If you love the Rick Owens show, click here to see more dramatic black and white runway shots from Mr Purple himself.

“Every once in a while I’d feed one until it let me pet it, but it usually just ended up being more trouble than it was worth.” Um, not sure what to think about this, Rick Owens, but we still love your collection.

How cool are Greg Kessler‘s Model Morphosis for NY Times’ The Moment? See Karolin Wolter at Gareth Pugh.

Grand Dame

September 23rd, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Yasmin LeBon is one of fashion’s timeless beauties – her classic and graceful good looks have graced magazines for over two decades and she’s still got it. For October’s Vogue Paris Alasdair McLellan captures Yasmin looking resplendent in her home as Anastasia Barbieri styles the supermodel in dramatic jet black. The contrast between the country setting and the couture styling only serves to highlight Yasmin’s dual role of down to earth mother and fashion icon.
