Cut & Paste | Ph. Damien Blottiere | Magazine : Dazed & Confused
Models: Victoire Maçon-Dauxerre & Christian Ochsenfahrt | Fashion Editor: Robbie Spencer | Hair: Nicolas Eldin | Makeup: Sergio Corvacho
Pure imagination. Blottiere’s use of cut outs to create images never fails to excite and impress.

With simple premise and a bit of cool styling, Ben Toms crafts an enviably chic studio editorial; note to the the powers that be, this is how its done!
Un dimanche à la campagne | Ph. Mikael Jansson | Magazine : Vogue Paris
Models: Sasha Pivovarova & Ava | Fashion Editor: Anastasia Barbieri | Hair: Anthony Turner | Makeup: Mark Carrasquillo | Sets: Mary Howard
Great casting makes you rethink your models; who would have ever thought of Sasha as maternal until this editorial came along. The sweet story was a breath of fresh air and strikingly different from VP’s in your face, controversy inducing fare.
The Family Circus | Ph. Paolo Roversi | Magazine : W
Models: Lindsey Wixson, Britt Maren, Anais Pouliot & Arizona Muse | Fashion Editor: Alex White | Hair: Julien d’Ys | Makeup: Lucia Pieroni | Sets: Piers Hanmer
Enchanting, atmospheric and quintessentially Roversi with a cast of bright new stars; if the revamped W gave us more like this every month we certainly wouldn’t mind.
This is just a flawless editorial. Striking use of color, movement and 70’s style ensembles. The fact that Melodie and Anais are incredible together certainly doesn’t hurt things either.
With a whimsical and witty take on the astrological chart, Tim Gutt’s fantastical editorial was the perfect way to end the year. Shona Heath’s larger than life sets are out of this world.
