I love the way Vincent Peters‘ photography incorporates multiple uses of layering and lighting adjustments, yet can be viewed seamlessly. In the photographer’s spread for the November 2011 issue of Vogue Russia, “Glacial Glamour“, Ginta Lapiņa and her equally-extraordinary background models are set to seductive perfection. Ekaterina Mukhina did a beautiful job with the styling, as well. View Post
Do werk, Ymre Stiekema! For Harper’s Bazaar España‘s issue for September 2011, they Bazaar Gods (photographer Gonzalo Machado and fashion stylist Leticia Riestra) brought the beautiful model in for an ethereal photo shoot titled “Secreto en el bosque”. It’s beyond beautiful, and checking all of my clothes-lust boxes; YSL cape coat and an absolute abundance of Dior. Tick tick. View Post
You only need a quick glance at the title of Vogue Italia‘s September issue to get the jist. Avant Garde, it certainly is. Combining the magic of photographer Steven Meisel and Photoshop (…I mean, it has to be), we are presented with both a gorgeously haunting image of Stella Tennant and the tiniest waist in the Universe. With runway-worthy sculpted hair and an incredible play on proportions, the pair of scissors in her right hand and enormous nose ring were actually the last thing I noticed. Meaningfully menacing? Whatever the inspiration, I am beyond titillated.
They’re finally being released! All aboard the September Issue express! My favourite thus far is of the always radiant Karlie Kloss in a fuchsia Gucci number on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. The shot is courtesy of photographer Victor Demarchelier (son of the much-adored photographic legend, Patrick Demarchelier).
“The Goldfish” for Vs. Magazine’s Spring/Summer 2011 issue is my favourite photoshoot of the year, hands down. I have never seen anything quite like it. Firstly, you have the unique and curvaceous beauty of Lily Cole styled perfectly by Vibe Dabelsteen. Secondly, photographer Paolo Ventura has taken an artistic concept completely outside of the box, delivering photographs that wouldn’t feel out of place in a prestigious gallery. Blown away. View Post
