i-D magazine sure like their NSFW-ness, don’t they? Not that anyone is complaining since their rightly risqué Pre-Spring 2011 issue filled up by models Erin Wasson, Jessica Stam, Chanel Iman, and Hilary Rhoda (She’s back! She’s back!). Everything is still predominately ‘fashion‘ versus ‘trashion‘ thanks to the photography of Kayt Jones. View Post
Hate the name, love the spread. While this shoot from Vogue Italia‘s February issue is titled “The Blackallure” (have we ever seen a “Whiteallure”?), each Emma Summerton-worked shot is a masterpiece. That perfect lighting is hitting the faces of Ajak Deng, Aminata Niaria, Arlenis Sosa, Chanel Iman, Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, Lais Ribeiro, Kinee Diouf, Melodie Monrose, Rose Cordero, and Sessilee Lopez. Glorious. View Post
Let’s get the model list out of the way for “Gangs of New York” in February’s issue of Vogue, shall we?
Julia Saner, Anna de Rijk, Frida Gustavsson, Monika Jagaciak, Kate Somers, Julia Hafstrom, Julia Johansen, Luisa Bianchin, Chantal Stafford-Abobott, Donna Loos, Gwen Loos, Patricia van der Vilet, Mirte Maas, Nimue Smit, Arizona Muse, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Kendra Spears, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Ajak Deng, Arlenis Sosa Peña, Chanel Iman, Anais Mali, Jourdan Dunn, Sessilee Lopez, Jana Knauerova, Hannah Holman, Britt Maren, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Kasia Struss, So Young Kang, Hyoni Kang, Tao Okamoto, Fei Fei Sun, and Ming Xi.
That is an impressive group that can only tickle my fashion heart further as it was shot by Mario Testino and styled by Grace Coddington. Only complaint is the lack of ethnic variation. Is there a certain reason that the black and asian models are completely segregated from the white models? As much as a fully-Asian shot of Proenza Schouler appeals to me, it’s trite exclusion has dulled the collection visually. View Post
Remember the sneak peaks and nondisclosure naughties after Tom Ford‘s uber-exclusive womenswear show in September? We finally have it on video!
As we were aware, there were models, actresses and more who pranced in Ford’s production, making for fabulous Youtube-vision. We see Terry Richardson photographing the Tom-Forded bodies of Chanel Iman, Liya Kebede, Lauren Hutton, Julianne Moore, Daphne Guinness and Beyonce, among a small crowd of exclusive guests a la Anna Wintour. It’s happy, sweet, and very obviously Seventies. See below! View Post
