Been away for nearly a month, but now it’s time to get back to it my loves, with NUDITY! So much beautiful nudity! As I lustily state every month: the Lui is my very favourite publication; it’s elegant raunch, it’s sumptuous filth, it’s my WHOLE HEART. The main spread for the December/January issue, shot by masters of dirty glam Luigi & Iango features the following models whose names I will now shout: NATASHA POLY! AMBER VALLETTA! LARA STONE! MALGOSIA BELA! ANJA RUBIK! MARIACARLA BOSCONO! TONI GARRN! DARIA STROKOUS! JOURDAN DUNN! CAROLYN MURPHY! ISABELI FONTANA! and EDITA VILKEVICIUTE! Such a perfect mix of all the best Lui Ladies. I’m so happy, you guys!

Also, thanks for sticking around those of you who keep checking in! Look at the gifts I provide to loyal filth monsters!

Simply the Best by Sebastian Faena for V Magazine, 2015

There are many good things about this editorial – starting with the fact that its title gets an awesome Tina Turner song stuck in your head. Also! White lingerie! *bites fist* Each of these models: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Amber Valletta, Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr, Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik, Karmen Pedaru, Lily Donaldson, and Kate Upton are uniquely beautiful, but placing each of them barely clothed on white sheets gives them all a similar naughty angel vibe, and I am smitten!

‘Back In the Lime Light’ by Mert & Marcus for W, September 2015

This immense, intense, technicolor editorial in the September W magazine is like an ever lasting disco fever dream.  It’s what your imagination creates when you think of what it is that the beautiful people of the world do.  It’s models new and established, actresses, musicians, It Girls, boy toys and the gorgeous people who orbit them.  It’s like moments caught in a strobe light, brief flashes of sex, abandonment, beauty, lasciviousness, and the universal search for the best party ever.

PFW Spring 2015 – Lanvin, Dior and Undercover

Lanvin Spring 2015

There is nothing in world like Lanvin.  Designer Alber Elbaz’s greatest talent is his ability to take classic designs and make them uniquely his own.  A Lanvin piece is instantly recognizable, beautifully tailored, simple while still luxe in tiny touches.  Mature with little playful touches, like the monkey and foxes that dance through this collection.  Add on to all of this the appearance of supermodel Amber Valletta with a side fade and you’ve got one hell of a fashion week show.

Dior Spring 2015

I’ve struggled with Dior since the firing of Galliano and the hiring of Raf Simons.  I miss Galliano’s flair for drama, his devotion to history, his obsession with glamour.  I know that his depature was necessary but at the same time it’s been difficult to go from all the excess of a Galliano designed collection to the starkness of Simons.  Add on to that my passionate dislike of gaudy patterns and textiles and weird silhouettes, it’s been very hard for me to generate any positive reactions to the recent collections.  So you can imagine my surprise when I went through this collection and actually liked a lot of the looks.  I’m starting to appreciate Simons’ attention to delicate details, his love of the Christian Dior inspired lines, the simplicity of the palettes and designs.  This is a completely different animal from the Galliano’s Dior, but that doesn’t discount it as being interesting.

Undercover Spring 2015

When I saw pictures of the manga inspired jewelry from this collection on Instagram this morning, I knew I had to check it out.   It was even more fantastic than I could have imagined.  Black wings!  Ballet skirts!  Hieronymus Bosch printed dresses!  Broken mirror jewelry!  Cherry purses with brass knuckle handles!   This is a surreal trip through fairy tale land, dark and twisted and sinister and silly and fun and I love every piece.

The Photographers’ Portfolio – Interview Magazine, September 2014

August 25th, 2014|Categories: Celebrity Editorials & Photo Shoots, Fashion Editorials, Fashion Models|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This year’s September issues have been a triumph! Interview Magazine keeps up the trend with a six cover homage to six iconic photographers. Each photographer shoots an editorial with an actress or model who also interviews the photographer. Steven Klein shoots Nicole Kidman in a distressed damsel shoot; Mert and Marcus show off Naomi Campbell’s epic curves; Peter Lindbergh and Léa Seydoux create an intimate melancholy story together; Keira Knightley poses for Patrick Demarchelier in an elegant, stark editorial; Mikael Jansson photographs Daria Werbowy in a moody black-and-white beach story; and Amber Valletta and Craig McDean pair up for a powerful fashion spread. Each editorial is absolute perfection. My favourite is definitely Nicole Kidman and Steven Klein’s work; Steven Klein is a masterful storyteller, and Nicole is a perfect muse for this is dark, dangerous, and sexy story.
