Jo Calderone (also known as Lady Gaga) is once again breaking gender barriers with the help of her long-time friend and stylist Nicola Formichetti – this time by way of Vogue Hommes Japan #5. With the mind-melting Nick Knight on lens, the ‘biker boy‘ qualities of Stefani Germanotta‘s alter-ego in “Homebody’s Don’t Smile” make for some illustrious images. View Post
Barbie has landed a prize internship. She’s assisting Nick Knight and the whole SHOWstudio.com team from this Sunday through London Fashion Week and we will get to see it all as she will posting live video updates online at the SHOWstudio.com blog!
It’s essentially a great publicity stunt to launch the new Barbie Video doll. That’s right, Barbie has now become much more than a doll – she’s a video camera! The camera is hidden in her necklace and there’s a video screen on her back. She even has a USB plug in cord to insert right into your computer for downloading and amending footage. Imagine shooting your next Youtube video with a Barbie. Tres chic.
The latest Visionaire comes as ‘A tribute to Lee Alexander McQueen‘ – #58 titled “Spirit“. As you can see, he contributor list is amazing; Nick Knight, Lady Gaga, Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Mario Sorrenti, Steven Meisel, Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, David Sims, Sean Ellis, and Sebastian Faena. The limited 1,500 copies have now been released and can be purchased for $295 here. Pocket change. View Post
After the blow-up we all heard about previously, they finally released their tri-cover!
In the words of i-D:
With more names than you can shake a bag of monkeys at, we have brains, beauty and the downright gorgeous, back-to-back-to-back in our non-stop birthday festivities. From rapstars to trapstars, supers to trannies, we conducted a 3 week celebratory photoshoot at Somerset House collaborating with Nick Knight to document the turn of the decade. From cover to cover, the portraits will run throughout the THEN Pre-Fall issue. Almost 200 people took part in the breathtaking project, including The XX, Phoebe Philo, Sir Paul Smith, Florence Welch, Vivienne Westwood, Lara Stone, Pink and Gareth Pugh. Shot entirely in black and white this will be a collectors issue of the future and an important marker in time – made even more spectacular with our three amazing cover stars; Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lady Gaga.
To be honest, I’m not feeling the new logo but I am beyond excited to paw through the insides.
