The November issue of Numéro is a celebration of diverse photography styles, featuring some of the most talented models working today. Let’s break it down! Impossible limbstress Anna Cleveland contorts for Greg Kadel in a shoot that’s a romantic mix of stark black and white images with autumn grazing-in-the-grass photos; Alisa Ahmann stars in a perfectly saturated 60s retro series for Laurie Bartley; Soo Joo Park & Giedre Kiaulenaite are featured in a Hong Janghyun editorial that’s so gritty and gorgeous that I want to memorize every detail; and the positively enchanting Hana Jirickova is shot by Hans Feurer in a shoot that, when I saw a thumbnail of one of the images, I thought was a retro image of Kate Moss. Delicious fashion treats! Grab a copy of this! There’s too much goodness to not own!

Elsa Hosk by Dove Shore for GQ Mexico, August 2015

October 27th, 2015|Categories: Erotica, Fashion Models, Fashion Photographers|Tags: , , , |

Sometimes I put together a post but don’t actually post it. I’m silly. In an attempt to get through some drafts that are scrumptious and should have been shared, here’s a little summer throwback shoot of the enchanting Elsa Hosk by Dove Shore for GQ Mexico. Maybe this isn’t an appropriate time to get summer nostalgic when it’s, arguably, the best week of the year, and I have little to no desire to reminisce about the summer, for this is the Spookiest Week of the Year and should be appropriately cool and dark, but oh how I love love ripply blonde hair and sun-dappled skin, and Elsa looks like a honey hued Helena Christenen in Chris Issak’s Wicked Game video. Let’s do it guys! Let’s just take a minute or two to remember the loveliness of August. Then it’s back to Macabre Madness!

Recent Diane Kruger Editorials

I checked to see if Diane Kruger has anything coming out and maybe that’s why she’s gracing us with her presence, but I don’t think she is, I think she’s just fierce and fabulous and sometimes life works in our favour. I will take this moment to promote Mr Diane Kruger – Joshua Jackson is one of the magnificent stars of the heartbreaking The Affair. You should watch it! Joshua plays a man who can really fill out a snap-front top and pair of jeans, like I imagine all men could do in the 70s. The second season is airing now. I haven’t started watching it yet, but the first season, told by Dominic West and Ruth Wilson’s point-of-view, was an intriguing delight. This season is told from the spouses’ point-of-view so it’s time to watch Pacey shine! Maura Tierney also stars. So put The Affair on your must-watch list, and then marvel at these gorgeous images of Diane Kruger. It seems like the fashion magazines and myself can’t get enough of David Bellemere, and this shoot of Diane for Violet Grey is a unique blend of Bellemere & Kruger’s style. So glam! I love it! Sean & Seng photographed Kruger for the November issue of Vanity Fair France and it’s an autumnal treat!

LesBeehive Throwback Thursday – Tilda Swinton as David Bowie by Craig McDean for Vogue Italia, February 2003

It’s a well known fact that Tilda Swinton and David Bowie are Intergalactic Sisters from an Alien Mister, Star Brothers from a Mars Mother, etc. But did you know that in 2003 Tilda Swinton starred in an epically beautiful Bowie inspired photo shoot for Vogue Italia? Craig McDean shot our Alien God in a series of gender skewering, suit and smoking porn shots that reference Bowie’s iconic Life on Mars? & Thin White Duke looks. When David Bowie saw the photos, he said to stylist Edward Enninful, “When did I do this shoot?” (full quote below) CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? ISN’T THAT GLORIOUS? David Bowie thought pictures of Tilda Swinton were him! She Twin Tricked him! Hah! Good goof, Tilda!

I’ve also included one of my favourite series of Tilda photos. I only have them as tiny test shots and I know nothing about them except that they’re glorious and I have the folder they’re in labelled as “Bowie Like”. My brain is fun. So is Tilda! So is Bowie! I LOVE THE GALAXY!

“When David Bowie saw my book, he could not believe it when he saw the [Bowie-inspired 2003 Vogue Italia ] pictures of Tilda. He thought it was him. He was like, ‘When did I do this shoot?’ He was floored. Even he couldn’t believe how much she looked like him.”

Recent Anne Hathaway Editorials

Is there any treat more scrumptious than a good Anne Hathaway editorial? Annie wandered out of the spotlight a couple years ago after the entire world, as a collective, decided they were tired of sincerity as far as the eye could see. Bunch of cynical jerks! She’s slowly returning to the public eye, and these lovely photo shoots are a delightful reminder that she’s a force, and of the length of her hair. Cool! Anne thrills in a sumptuous black and white shoot for InStyle by Michelangelo Di Battista. This is the cover. WHY, INSTYLE? It’s like a joke. Their covers are almost 100% terrible, while their cover shoots inside are almost 100% gorgeous. It’s so confounding. I guess they’re really married to that instantly recognizable InStyle look, but it looks like crap! I don’t think I’ve ever even bought an InStyle because I don’t want that cover mingling with my beautiful Vogue and Vanity Fair and Love covers. No! Get your shit together InStyle! Refinery 29 features a Guy Aroch shoot with Annie, and it’s great! Fun and frisky couture! The layout of the editorial on the site was crap though. STOP USING GIFS AS ONE OF THE IMAGES, MAGAZINE WEBSITES! Just cool it and display your photos in a clean, classic, easy to load way. GIFs are for capturing hilarious moments from television, not making your website look like an Interactive Magazine From the FuTuRe. I’m being really negative. I’ll say only good things about Jem Mitchell’s photos of Anne for the October issue of Glamour UK – clean, fresh, love the dreamy creamy pink filter. Just gorgeous. Proud of you Jem! And, as always, I’m eternally proud of you, Annie! And I, for one, never wanted you to go away. Stay with us forever! It’s ok to like things and giggle a lot!
