For it’s 34th issue,  METAL Magazine evokes and channels the idea of “Beautiful Obsessions” into its soft-hued pages and avoids the predictable–offering up a fresh show and tell of visuals. Three covers, featuring fragile stares by each of its stars, Luka van der VekenHari Nef and Julia Leineweber, bind the collection of editorials, prefaced by an editor’s statement, “As the issue started shaping itself, we realized it was an issue about beauty. In other words, about how we seek for beauty in those obsessions that keep chasing us along our lifetime.” Inside Coco Capitan photographs Gaby Loader & Sasha Baldina with her signature idiosyncratic eye, dressed in red tracksuits courtesy of Anna Pesonen, while Julia Leineweber shimmers, bedecked with glitter and sequin in her story by Raffaele Cariou and Martina Lew quietly models in peculiar pastels styled by Santi Rodriguez and shot by Jonas Lindstrom. See what else below.

Stella Lucia steps into the Office

September 14th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Office Magazine‘s issue 03 offering is all about the it-factor. Newly listed Top 50 model Stella Lucia is set in the Doldrums but far from dull in this editorial shot by Nicole Maria Winkler. Styled by Jack Borkett, the offhand vibe of selects from Alexander Wang, Dior, Versace, and Stella McCartney create an compelling setting for the in-demand model to flourish in. With beauty looks curated by Yumi Nakada-Dingle and Lucy Burt, the pouty visage of Stella is framed angelically with failing ringlets and graphically painted lids.

Check out the editorial spread below and see the new issue out on select newsstands now!
