Lui, September 2014

The tenth issue of Lui is another triumph, each fabulous issue proving that its reboot was an absolutely wonderful idea. Covergirl Fanny François stars in a languid editorial by French filth-master Olivier Zahm. Naked ladies posing with books is my favourite! Karen Elson poses for Solve Sundsbo in a gorgeous velvety outdoor shoot that celebrates Karen’s red hair and impossibly pale skin. Both shoots are enchanting.

Model Auguste Abeliunaite stars alongside models dressed as Divine, David Lochary, and Edith Massey in this perfect homage to John Waters’ 1972 filthsploitation film Pink Flamingos. This movie has been a constant source of fashion inspiration for Su & me – from Mink Stole’s fire engine red hair & cat eye spectacles to Divine’s come hither curve-hugging dresses and feisty sashay. Let this story inform all your fall fashion decisions – get all dressed up and ready to fall in love!

New and Old Editorials by Ellen von Unwerth

Ellen von Unwerth’s been a long time favorite of both myself and Bo – her celebration of fun, pretty ladies, retro looks and female sexuality creates a world that, in our eyes, is exactly the way the world should look.  This month EVU has two edits in Vogue Brazil, a perfect venue for her brightly coloured, highly stylized photos.  I also found these amazing pictures of Bjork from 1993 that I’ve never seen before, showing her when she was a baby pixie princess and not the otherworldly queen she is now.  It’s amazing to see how much she’s changed while still keeping that internal spark that makes her her.

Angelina Jolie photographed by Brad Pitt

I don’t even have the words to express how happy it makes me to see Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and their family and their love in action. Something this beautiful had to be pre-ordained – to make two of the most genetically blessed, famous, talented, forward thinking, smart, silly and sexy people in the world fall in love and create a family would have been enough of a blessing for all of us plebeian folks to look at, but then they go on to devote themselves so completely to not only creating beautiful films, they also bring so much attention, time, money, and a voice to those who struggle, who hurt, who are voiceless through their amazing devotion to charity. Then they go and have a beautiful, private, personal wedding, with Maddox and Pax walking their mom down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne dropped rose petals and siblings Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers. As we all recover from this crushingly beautifully perfect visual, let’s look at these beautiful pictures that Brad Pitt took of his wife back in 2008 for W Magazine.
