Lea T Elle Brasil
A round of applause to Elle Brasil for creating one of the most beautiful covers this year, and pushing the envelope by making a coverstar out of the beautiful transgender model, Lea T. Their December cover – photographed by Fábio Bartelt – creates a double-wow with some gorgeous Givenchy pieces which lead into a simplistic black and white spread. View Post

Emma Stone Riot Girl
Gah, I adore Emma Stone! Not only did the July 2011 issue of Elle use the power combo of photographer Carter Smith and stylist Joe Zee, but they used one of my favourite actresses as a model! The fashion in “Riot Girl” is extremely strong for a celebrity spread, creating a cohesive and impressive editorial. It’s also to be noted that the clothes aren’t wearing her (you could call this Jessica Alba syndrome?). View Post

Agyness Deyn James Franco Elle
This is so wonderfully strange. Firstly, we have the low-key return of Agyness Deyn in the July issue of Elle, pulling out the Rebel Without a Cause look. Not only did she model for “Chateau Dreams“, but she styled it. And well, as long as we’re letting the model be the stylist, why not let James Franco be the photographer? Yes. Pot-smoking, arm-chopping, Golden Globe-winning actor James Franco.

You would never have guessed, eh? I adore this spread. What do you think? View Post

Chanel Iman for Elle Italia
Chanel Iman is all smiles for Elle Italia October 2010. For this issue, their section named “Snapshot” is showcasing ad campaigns and editorials featuring men and women of color. No words, just powerful imagery.
