A high fashion dream team unites for a daring blend of haute fashion and high art. A sprawling set piece by M/M Paris hits the streets of Paris and provides an off-kilter motif for McDean’s imagery. Anna models the season’s latest looks from Marc Jacobs, Yohji Yamamoto, Louis Vuitton and Junya Watanabe with her trademark ease, making even the most complex pieces seem effortless. This exciting blend of arresting fashion and colorful sculpture isn’t just visually appealing, it also hammers home the idea that the very best fashions are works of art.

Karl Templer
Anna Ewers
Interview Magazine

Sometimes the combination of stylist, photographer and model combines to create a series of images with the power to make viewers dream. Together Templer, Demarchelier and Ewers create an evocative black and white studio story for Interview in which each element of the shoot is elevated. Pieces from fashion boundary breakers like Gareth Pugh, Yohji Yamamoto and Phoebe Philo come to life on the dynamic Anna, who showcases each look with gusto. Templer’s selection is heightened by the simple black and white style which gives the editorial a stately feel – perfect for clothes that are on the cutting edge yet maintain a timeless quality.

First Look: ODDA

October 18th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

Since its launch just over a year ago, ODDA Magazine has continued to deliver fresh, avant-garde fashions for both men and women, and as we expected, the latest issue delivers just that and more. ODDA offers two covers for issue number 5 featuring Polish beauty Magdalena Jasek in Margiela and handsome Tyler Maher in Prada. The always-unpredictable content ranges from innovative and edgy to playful and quirky. Interviews with designers, from the iconic Yohji Yamamoto to the inimitable Christian Lacroix to current creatives Kris Van Assche, Thom Browne and Gaia Trussardi give the magazine that extra jolt of fashion. Sneak a peek at our favorite stories below. ODDA goes worldwide on October 28th— certainly an issue that can’t be missed.

Saskia de Brauw.
Interview.

The master of avant garde fashions sits down with director, Wim Wenders for an in depth discussion of his work and continuing influence. Wenders previously captured Yamamoto in the documentary, Notebook on Cities and Clothes and their latest conversation proves insightful and refreshing. The accompanying photographs by Roversi capture the beauty of Yamamoto’s work and its quiet majesty.

Blast from the Past: Mirabella

January 15th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The news is always going on about the death of print, but what happens when a familiar favorite magazine really does go away forever? Fans of 90s fashion will fondly remember Mirabella, sitting on the newsstand alongside issues of Elle, Bazaar and Vogue. From 1989 to 2000 the magazine founded by  fashion fixture and former editor -in -chief of American Vogue, Grace Mirabella offered up a no-nonsense take on fashion. Appealing to women who valued not only style, but substance the magazine was chock full of the era’s trademarks: supermodels, shoulder pads and colorful imagery filled with designs from the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, and Helmut Lang.

Even though the days of Mirabella have long since passed, time hasn’t stripped the publication of its charms. Looking back there are a great many aspects of Mirabella that still feel contemporary: Sarah Moon’s haunting photography is just as relevant today as it was nearly two decades ago (check the latest Valentino campaign if you need proof) and Christy Turlington – a perennial Mirabella fave – is still one of the industry’s great beauties. Today’s obsession with model-style seems foreshadowed by Mirabella’s sleek Glen Luchford editorial styled by none other than Kate Moss and it’s hard to think of a glossy that wouldn’t jump at the chance to publish a feature along these lines today. Styles may come and go but Ines de la Fressange still turns heads as trendsetter for the ages and Regan Cameron’s images of the legendary French muse are an enduring delight.

20 More All-Time Fashion Icons

April 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Time Magazine‘s list of the 100 Greatest Fashion Icons is a compelling read. There are some obvious choices – Karl, Coco, Marc, Naomi, Linda & Kate are absolute icons. There are also few unsuspected surprises – we love The Row but, it was shocking to see the Olsen Twins mentioned alongside names like Schiaparelli and Prada. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the list were the names that don’t even appear at all. Time’s list passed over a host of bonafide icons from the world’s of design, entertainment and modeling. Here are 20 people Time missed that we think deserve to be held alongside the icons of the industry.

DESIGNERS

1. MADAME GRES
The legendary couturier, creator of the draped dress and one of the first designers to utilize the bias cut. Should be up there with Chanel!

2. HALSTON
Seminal American designer of the seventies, without the Halston look designers like Michael Kors wouldn’t exist.

3. THIERRY MUGLER
Mugler’s boundary pushing fashions defined the 80s and early 90s with their exaggerated proportions and dangerous sex appeal. Nicola Formichetti‘s revamp of Mugler’s label is nice and all, but nothing can ever compare to the original.

4. YOHJI YAMAMOTO
The unquestioned master of Japanese design – his omission from the list left us flabbergasted.

5. OLIVIER THEYSKENS
One of the brightest talents to emerge in the past decade. His designs at Rochas and Nina Ricci raised the bar for everyone in the industry and at Theory he continues to innovate.

MAKEUP ARTISTS & HAIR STYLISTSthere wasn’t a single makeup artist or hairstylist on the list and that in itself is downright criminal.

5. PAT McGRATH
From the game changing looks she’s created over the years on the runways, to her role in shaping Rooney Mara’s transformation in Girl With the Dragon tattoo, Pat has more than made an impact on the way we view makeup.

6. WAY BANDY
Creative genius behind those epic Scavullo shots that dominated the 70s and continue to inspire. Was one of the first makeup artists to step into the publishing field with his book, Designing Your Face.

7. VIDAL SASSOON (with Grace Coddington)
The man behind every geometic bob ever to exist and one of the first hair stylists to achieve celebrity status. Remember that gorgeous pixie Mia Farrow had in Rosemary’s Baby? You can thank Vidal for that.

MODELS

8. VERUSCHKA
One of the most photographed women of all time and the model in one of the most influential fashion films, Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow Up.

9. CHRISTY TURLINGTON
You can’t exclude one of the most important members of the Trinity and not expect to hear about it. On top of being one of the most prolific supermodels ever, Christy’s continued humanitarian put her at the top of the list.

10. BROOKE SHIELDS
The face of the 80s in every way imaginable. From those unforgettable brows, to the Calvin ads that live on as the standard even now, Shields is iconic in every way.

MUSES

11. MARILYN MONROE & ELIZABETH TAYLOR
Two legends of vintage style who didn’t make the list. We can’t think of a single more copied look than Marilyn’s pneumatic bottle blonde chic. The public frenzy over La Liz’s posthumous Christies auction all but proves her lasting influence as an icon of celebrity style.

12. IRIS APFEL
When the Met launches an entire collection based around your style, you know that you’re a legend. Apfel has inspired everyone from MAC Cosmetics, to labels like Suno, Prada and countless fashionphiles.

EDITORS / INSIDERS

13 & 14.CATHY HORYN & SUZY MENKES
The two strongest and most opinionated voices in fashion criticism surely deserve a spot on the iconic list. Besides, where would we be without Suzy’s inimitable hair croissant?

15. ANNA DELLO RUSSO
If the street style revolution has a face it belongs to the outlandish and perennially over the top, Ms. Dello Russo. If Lady Gaga gets a slot for sartorial antics, so should Anna.

16. POLLY MELLEN
From Miss Porter’s school to the pages of Vogue, Bazaar and Allure, in her nearly 50 year career Mellen contributed to some of fashion’s most memorable imagery.

PHOTOGRAPHERS

17. PETER LINDBERGH
One of the more shocking omissions, Lindbergh’s signature cinematic style has stood the test of time.

18. MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT
For better or worse their sleek, surreal style changed the landscape of fashion photography forever.

19. BILL CUNNINGHAM
The creator of street style and still its very best representative. Forget Sart, Garance, Tommy Ton and all the others – Bill originated it all.

INNOVATORS

20. MILENA CANONERO
Costume designer Edith Head gets a nod for her role in shaping Hollywood glamour, but Canonero’s inventive costuming doesn’t get a mention. Her role in crafting our vision of subversive glamour is unparalleled; Clockwork Orange, The Hunger, Barry Lyndon, Marie Antoinette – the list goes on.
