While the 2012 Pirelli calendar is not due to be unveiled until December, your little Lela London has her paws on a very early preview of the NSFW (not suitable for work!) annal. The six ladies of 2012 that we know are definitely involved thus far consist of Isabeli Fontana, Saskia de Brauw, Lara Stone, Kate Moss, Milla Jovovich, and Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi (who is incredibly awesome, beautiful, and a spot-on casting). The shots – taken in Corsica – were taken by Mario Sorrenti earlier this Summer. Read on when your boss is on their lunchbreak. View Post
Vogue Paris celebrates it’s 90th anniversary this month with a special issue to be released on September 27th containing 624 pages of surprises. On the cover, Lara Stone wears only a lace mask, gloves and choker to illustrate the masquerade theme of the issue.
In addition, Vogue Paris will launch its first iPad app which will include a mini animation film directed by Steven Klein, a video clip shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and a ‘Making Of’ beauty session with Mario Sorrenti. As a bonus, Carine Roitfeld even comments the photographs of the portfolio on the iPad. Exciting!
The October issue of French Vogue, never one to do what the other guys were doing for the sake of fitting in, will total 622 pages. Carine Roitfeld favourite Lara Stone will appear on the cover of this issue, which marks the magazine’s 75th anniversary and hits newsstands on September 10th. The issue includes:
– 276 pages of ads, which is 110 pages more than last year’s October issue.
– 104 pages of congratulations from all kinds of designers, because fashion loves a back scratch.
– 150 pages of features, shot by photographers like Mario Sorrenti, David Sims, Terry Richardson, Steven Klein, Hedi Slimane, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
– Inès de la Fressange’s 11-year-old daughter modeling the little black dress (shot by Slimane).
And anyone willing to hop over the channel can buy the issue bundled with a “portfolio of oversize photographs from the nine decades, all unbound on thick paper and ready to frame”. JEALOUS.
