As I was flicking through the September issue of Vogue (UK) last week, there was one ad that really stood out to me – this one. Aldo‘s upbeat Fall/Winter 2011 campaign. Though Terry Richardson‘s personal controversies tie a lot of negativity to his name, he truly takes a bomb photograph. From Andy Harman on set design to Sarah Richardson on styling, each little component of the shoot came with their gameface on. Of course, the fierce shoes and sheer hotness of Lily Donaldson and actor Matthew Gray Gubler don’t hurt a thing. View Post

Fashion's Night Out: The Show - Runway
From beginning to end, Fashion’s Night Out: The Show was an overwhelmingly amazing spectacle to experience, but when you have supers including Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Coco Rocha walking, that is clearly to be expected.

While many were waiting for the show to start on the runway, it really began on the city’s streets, as the models drove up on a Fashion’s Night Out branded bus! With a wave, the supers exited the bus, dressed in this year’s t-shirts and opened the show, accessorizing long skirts with the iconic Fashion’s Night Out t-shirts. What was quite possibly the fastest and largest scale show ever seemed like a total blur. Between 171 looks and over 150 models, the largest public runway show in NYC history was completed in about 10 minutes. Girls took to the circular runway, showing off a variety of different trends after the ‘Opening Act’: Fifties Flair, Tartan Twist, Pure At Heart, Weekend Wrap Up, Rock Chic, Go Global, and Jazz Age Cool.

For their second turn around the catwalk, models including Jourdan Dunn, Angela Lindvall, Chanel Iman, and Lily Donaldson came out dressed in long gowns, strutting to a live performance from Pharrell. After Naomi appeared in a gold Oscar de la Renta sparkly number (the same which Cameron Diaz wore recently), the show was over, and she lead girls back into the bus for a dance party style send off.

“The best part was seeing the faces who are not part of fashion, the people who’ve never been to a fashion show before. It was insane because we never see that. We were almost like rock stars on the runway. Especially when they saw girls like Gisele and Naomi.”
Coco Rocha

Afterward, in a rare moment, Gisele sat down to chat with André Leon Talley in her ball-gown.

“I had a blast and I think it’s so great all the girls came together to support something like this,” she said. “I’ve been a model for 15 years and I was so nervous! This was the longest runway I’ve ever done!”
