Lady Gaga V Magazine
I have been waiting for this! V Magazine‘s cover for issue #71 was going to be a gamechanger as soon as they announced that the edition would be wholly asian-themed. Lady Gaga is only appropriate, isn’t she? While the world watches her every movie, this double-covered take on Madame Butterfly and asian thematics will make the uninformed media sit up and pay attention.

After being the cover model for their past two September issues (the most important issue of the year for any publication), the photographs – shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin – feel eternally resonant. Of course, the styling was done by her Super Stylist Sidekick Nicola Formichetti.

Gisele Vogue Paris Emmanuelle Alt
Emmanuelle Alt‘s first cover as Editor in Chief of Vogue Paris is here! For the April issue, Gisele B√ľndchen was shot in St. Barth’s wearing a white Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2011 dress, and was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. I love that the cover is Balmain-less, natural, and spared of accessories; it is such a departure from Alt’s ‘edgy’ reputation.

Arizona Muse Yves Saint Laurent
With her incredible worldwide standing at Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011, Arizona Muse has booked her first major ad campaign, and it’s an extremely coveted signing. The “rising star” is the flawless face of Yves Saint Laurent‘s Spring 2011 ad campaign.

Arizona was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in the gardens of Bled Roknine, a ’30s style villa in Marrakech. YSL’s connection to Morocco is well known as Yves bought the Majorelle botanical gardens (in Marrakech) in 1980 with his partner Pierre Barge. The gardens served as a source of inspiration to Saint Laurent, and now house an exhibition of his Morrocan-inspired pieces along with his ashes which were scattered when he died in 2008.

Vogue The Party Anja Rubik Isabeli Fontana Natasha Poly
Anyone that has ever worked on a photoshoot needs to pause for a quick second. In the most literal way it can be said: WERK. Vogue Paris and the team of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin have turned a chaotic (and undoubtedly planned) scene – “The Party” – into enthralling, scopophiliac art. Anja Rubik, Isabeli Fontana and Natasha Poly are at the forefront of it all. View Post

W Boy Meets Girl Ryan Gosling Michelle Williams Blue Valentine
W Magazine cover for October 2010. Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Sexy promotion for upcoming movie Blue Valentine. The question on everyone’s mind: after getting so much hype at Sundance, why do the pair look like they have no chemistry? Is Photoshop to blame?
