Sex sells, and Louis Vuitton just reminded us. With a Fall/Winter collection full of voluptuous silhouettes, handcuffs (attaching eighteen-carat gold handbags to model’s wrists), and high waisted lingerie boy shorts – it was clear that “fashion” and “fetish” are interchangable for Marc Jacobs. With such straightforward sexuality leaking out of the set’s elevators, the garments remained committed to Vuitton sophistication – it’s obviously time we stopped wearing pants, ladies. The show also featured the best casting of the season – Kate Moss (who closed the show, smoking), Raquel Zimmerman, Naomi Campbell, Amber Valletta and more. See the top five looks below! View Post
As the year comes to it’s editorial end, Tom Ford previews his six-years-late return to womenswear in “Mr. Ford Returns”. The Vogue spread was photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by the empowering Edward Enninful. The beauties are all big-time, with the likes of Karen Elson, Stella Tennant, Amber Valletta, Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik, Carolyn Murphy, and Edita Vilkeviciute in the gorgeous garments. View Post
Tom Ford will probably go down as the numero uno show of New York Fashion Week. When Anna Wintour, Joe Zee, Nina Garcia, and Carine Roitfeld can do nothing but praise you, it is pretty much set in stone.
The models selected were as follows:
Abbey Lee Kershaw, Amber Valletta, Anja Rubik, Carolyn Murphy, Catherine McNeil, Chanel Iman, Daria Werbowy, Du Juan, Edita Vilkeviciute, Freja Beha Erichsen, Monika “Jac” Jagaciak, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Karen Elson, Lakshmi Menon, Liu Wen, Liya Kebede, Natalia Vodianova, and Stella Tennant.
In addition to the models, Ford selected celebrties to showcase the parts of the collection, which included: Marisa Berenson, Rita Wilson, Julianne Moore, Farida Khelfa, Lisa Eisner, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Lou Doillon, Rachel Feinstein, Emmanuelle Seigner, Rinko Kikuchi, Beyonce and Daphne Guinness.
Each look was shot by Terry Richardson but won’t be available till January.

Love Magazine loves to do multiple covers. The last issue featured eight models, including Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy, Lara Stone, Jeneil Williams, Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy, and Amber Valletta in the exact same pose.
For September’s Love Issue 4, the editors are continuing the trend, but this time around, the looks are anything but similar. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley takes on a 50s bombshell appearance, while Alessandra Ambrosio’s gone high fashion and drastic by bleaching her eyebrows and painting on a bright red lip to pair with the background. All eight covers will be coming soon.
