Everyone’s go-to domestic goddess was quite the looker, wasn’t she? Martha Stewart – pictured here in a range of ads, including a Chanel ad (third picture) – first stepped into the limelight as a model in the 1960s to support herself while she attended college. In the PBS documentary Makers, Stewart revealed that she “[…] got enough modeling jobs at $50/hour — which was a lot of money at that time.”
Heads up, Karle Kloss: this model-turned-mogul is now worth over $638 million.
OOF. I try not to harp on about it, but when it comes to fashion styling, I believe no-one beats Grace Coddington. Case in point number 736352829? “Eternal Optimist” from Vogue US’ March 2012 issue. The casting choice alone was phenomenal: we have Caroline Trentini, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Frida Gustavsson, and Aymeline Valade – all heavy hitters with a true transformational presence.
With Craig McDean on lens, Grace has pulled together a Fifties-inspired masterpiece without being contrived. Just look at that set design. Bow down. View Post
The concept of “The Collections on IVC 2012” is simply brilliant. Anyone who does anything similar from this day forward will be sidelined by the precedent inspiration of Vogue Italia‘s January 2012 edition.
The spread kicks off with a nonchalant traipse of Alexander McQueen‘s S/S 2012 best and ends with Natasha Poly in Dolce & Gabbana (Poly and Gabbana are like PB&J, to me). QVC-styled by Karl Templer and photographed by Steven Meisel, the model cast is incredible in itself; Daria Strokous, Caroline Trentini, Joan Smalls, Sigrid Agren, Karlie Kloss, Natasha Poly, and Gertrud Hegelund. Mix in some Burberry with Jen Kao, and some Louis Vuitton lemon candy couture? I’m sold. Find me my credit card. View Post
