V Magazine Lets Go Cruising

Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Lindsey Wixson


V Magazine has put quite a smile on my little fashion face, today. For their latest issue – on stands November 8th – they have used actual models! Four covers worth! For the first time in two years!

Obviously, this kind of decision – after two years of celebrity covers – wasn’t going to take place without tagging some big names onto the shoot; infamous photographer Terry Richardson was on lens, while styling was handled by Carine Roitfeld. Each cover duo was brilliantly chosen, and included six of my current favourite models – Candice Swanepoel and Joan Smalls; Daphne Groeneveld and Saskia de Brauw; Sui He and Hanaa Ben Abdesslem, and Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Lindsey Wixson.

“These eight girls are unique, not one is like the other. Candice is the only blonde and blue-eyed of this new generation of supermodels. Joan is black, Sui He is Asian, Hanna is North African. It’s their diversity that makes each of them, to me, truly modern. They bring a new energy to fashion. […] It’s a big moment of change in fashion. In some cases, you feel like it’s the end of an era. I have been feeling this with cover subjects, and especially models.”

Burberry Spring Summer 2011 Campaign
Mario Testino took a break from snapping Prince William and Kate Middleton to lens the latest Spring/Summer 2011 campaign from Burberry, featuring British beauties Sophie Kennedy-Clark and Matthew Beard.

“We wanted to create a dynamic campaign that reflects the diversity of our broad global consumer, revealing new British cast members each month, all with their own identity, embodying the different attitudes of the Burberry guy and girl. We shot the campaign on Brighton Beach to celebrate the great British outdoors and our history of supporting emerging talent and to bring to life the emotion behind protection from the elements.”
Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer

Stick on Earrings - Fashion Rehash Please

“Imagine we are all the same. Imagine we all agree about politics, religion and morality. Imagine we like the same types of music, food and coffee. Sound boring? Differences need not divide us. Embrace diversity. Dignity is everyone’s human right.”
