Dream Works Iris Strubegger
Vogue Deutsch‘s best shoot from their September 2011 issue, “Dream Works“, was a huge surprise to me. As I am typically a fan of lively, character-driven models, Iris Strubegger‘s wax figure-esque appeal in this shoot is gorgeously atypical. The clothes are the main focus here, and with stylist Christiane Arp‘s talent, they are completely worthy. Final pro? Alexi Lubomirski on lens. View Post

Rihanna Madame Tussauds Wax FigureRihanna has joined the wax figure ranks of George Washington, Barack Obama, Tyra Banks, Angelina Jolie, and more at Madame Tussaud‘s Washington, D.C., location. She is even her new pose-pal for her Twitter profile picture.

As a nod to one of the singer’s favorite designers, the Rihanna replica rocks the all-black Balmain ensemble – lace corset, shoulder-padded blazer, and harem pants – she wore to the designer’s runway show during Spring 2010 Paris Fashion Week. Besides her signature blond Mohawk and smoky eyes, the singer wears a bevy of bling, including a diamond brooch, a large gold-and-diamond ring, giant diamond earrings, and a tennis bracelet. One thing is is missing is her that is grammatically incorrect neck tattoo, “rebelle fleur“.
