V Magazine Penelope Cruz
“V72: The Transformation Issue” is upon us (that’s V Magazine‘s latest issue to you and I). Not only have they got Mert and Marcus to shoot Penelope Cruz for the cover – oh no – but they’ve turned the technicolour image into a hologram that opens and closes her eyes when tilted.

Inside, the issue contains an interview and photo-shoot with a completely transformed Paris Hilton (seen below), who is claiming for the first time that her ‘dumb heiress’ image has been a publicity stunt from Day One.

With Lady Gaga, Anna Paquin, Karl Lagerfeld and much more, V72 is packed with goodness. View Post

Stefan Eckert
German haute couture fashion label Stefan Eckert enlisted the help of motion-graphics designer Tim Jockel to create one of the most incredible fashion shows I’ve ever seen.

According to Jockel’s Vimeo account:

The question was how to communicate the philosophy behind the new collection of German “Haute Couture” fashion designer Stefan Eckert in a better way. The answer was the world’s first complete 3D holographic fashion show. I teamed up with director Florian Sigl to create the visual concept for the show and how to express the collection within this special medium as best as possible. After shooting with a high speed camera I did all stages of post production, from 3D to motion graphics to compositing.
The result was one of the biggest holographic projections ever which creates a complete optical illusion and breaks the rules of time and space on stage.

Kate Moss Alexander McQueen
Supermodel Kate Moss looks impeccable here in a mesmerizing Alexander McQueen gown for the May 2011 cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK. The old muse of Lee McQueen dons the same ruffled organza dress that she wore in the Fall/Winter 2006 Widows of Culloden show (as a hologram).
