Strangely, it seems to have been quite some time since last sharing a fashion spread with you lovely blog readers. In all likeliness, I have simply been uninspired by all that the glossies have had to offer over the past few months. Until, of course, Grace Coddington wove her magic wand over this shoot for Vogue US‘ April 2013 issue. In ‘Window Dressing’, the legendary Peter Lindbergh snaps supermodel Carolyn Murphy and Tobey Maguire in a dramatic Alfred Hitchcock-inspired set which pays homage to his iconic film, Rear Window. The narrative and styling are simply impeccable.
Everything is so on point for US Vogue‘s “Spellbound” photo spread in their July 2011 issue. Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, we get a deliciously obscene amount of chemistry displayed from Lara Stone and Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman seems to be giving me the eyes). Grace Coddington‘s styling – once again – is compositionally perfect. This spread is phenomenal. Even Frida Gustavsson is thrown in for good model measure. View Post
Goodness gracious, Edward Enninful. You and Grace Coddington hold the stylist power of Vogue in your pricey pockets. Anyone else would have stacked the vertically challenged Bruno Mars on anything they could find to ‘look manly’ next to Amazon-heighted beauty Joan Smalls. For “La Isla Bonita” in Vogue US’ June issue, Enninful and photographer Peter Lindbergh have created a natural and realistic romance on gloss. It’s a fashionable depiction of talent, beauty, and reliance. Just gorgeous. View Post
Ahh, so much commentary to offer on “Brief Encounter” from Vogue‘s first 2011 issue. The shoot as a whole is incredible. When you have a directional photographer like Peter Lindbergh, it is a waste not to take riskier shots such as these. There is an atmospheric magic to the images of a tired-looking Daria Werbowy and David Strathairn in unusual titillation. With styling by Grace Coddington, there is so much more than fashion happening. View Post
We can all smell the Oscar for Black Swan already. Natalie Portman transformed audience’s minds from voyeurs to participants. This said, January Vogue‘s portrayal of her in “Spreading Her Wings” might be dangerously literal in respect to ballet photography. You can’t deny the simplistic beauty from the pairing of photographer Peter Lindbergh and stylist Tonne Goodman either way. View Post
