Bert Stern’s photographs of the young actress Sue Lyon as Lolita made an impact on the fashion world that is still felt today.   This beautiful editorial by the photographer of bombshell Eva Herzigova show off the looks of those iconic photographs, girl-next-door things like cardigans, gingham, denim with knitwear and lots of innocent but seductive lingerie.  Mixed with some referencing to Andre de Dienes’s early photographs of Marilyn Monroe, this is a beautiful, sensual editorial that remains timeless and inspirational.

 

New FKA Twigs Video, Performance and Editorial

FKA Twigs is having a busy month.  She’s V Magazine’s cover girl, photographed by the iconic Inez and Vinoodh while draped in Rodarte jewelry.  She also performed during the Brit Awards Nominations Launch, with tribal marks on her face and gorgeous abstract gold pieces on her neck and wrists.   The video for her song Pendulum dropped this week also.  Directed by Twigs herself and styled by Karen Clarkson (who styles all of Twigs’ performances and photo shoots) it features shibaru rope bondage with Twigs wrapped in her own hair.  These unique and original style moments are reminiscent of early Bjork.

These 4 new-to-me EVU edits beautifully display how her high contrast, vintage-y style was so aesthetic defining for fashion in the mid to late 90’s, and includes an appearance from Jenny Shimizu, who infamously dated Angelina Jolie and is now married to fashion icon Michelle Harper.

Lucero by Darren Ankenman for Purple Diary

Darren Ankenman photographs model Lucero in a lovely shoot for Purple Diary. I especially adore the way Lucero uses her gorgeous head of hair in each shot. My current hair goal is to have it long enough so it covers my breasts and my nipples reveal themselves through the sheet of hair. Gorgeous mermaid hair naughtiness! Also? Girls in nothing but sneakers! Yes please!
