The March issue of Vogue Italia is a triumph! Starting right off the bat with a stunning cover shot by Steven Meisel of Rianne von Rompaey. This cover is a perfect example of why I have pledged my eternal undying love to Vogue Italia as my favourite Vogue publication and Meisel as my favourite cover artist. They are my most beloved marriage (after Bey & Jay of course) and I hope the separation they were going through is over, because this is what my heart desires – ethereal beauty!

And that’s just the beginning my loves, because inside, oh inside! The cover story is a unique selection of ingénue portraits, just what Meisel does best! Photographers featured in this issue are among the most talented of our time and each of their editorials seem to celebrate their own unique style and remind us just why we love them. I’m going to specifically show you a few stories, but there are also spreads by Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Michel Comte, Miles Aldridge, and Sarah Moon, as well as a third by Paolo Roversi and a second by Ellen von Unwerth & Sølve Sundsbø. Truly we are blessed! Now go buy the issue because there is no sweeter feeling than stroking the glossy pages of a truly magnificent fashion magazine!

Tim Walker Editorials for Vogue Italia, December 2015

King of Whimsy Tim Walker provides the perfect holiday gift by slaying all in FOUR editorials for the December issue of Vogue Italia. It’s a Fashion Christmas Miracle! Kate Moss stars in a sumptuous surreal shoot where she wears lace in nearly every shot. I love Kate in lace! Karen Elson puts her Elson-spin on the classic Tim Walker portrait in a very retro inspired sitting. Anna Cleveland, Christina Carey, Erin O’Connor & Jamie Bochert serve some Sarah Moon inspired perfect in an exquisite story that actually made me cry. Anna Cleveland and Jamie Bochert are two of my favourite models, seeing them together was just too much for my odd-beauty loving heart to handle. Finally Edie Campbell is featured in a spooky harlequin shoot. All the facets of Tim’s unique style shine in every separate shoot and every single photo. I’m so happy! This is an issue I would strongly encourage purchasing in paper format. Petting the pages will be perfect art therapy.

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!

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

August 5th, 2015|Categories: Fashion Editorials, Fashion Models, Fashion Photographers|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

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.

After 17 years, Steven Meisel is rumored to have broken off his partnership with Vogue Italia.  Though the details are sketchy at this point, one thing is definitely clear from the most recent issue – Vogue Italia is going in a new direction creatively.  Tapping some of fashion’s biggest photographers, this issue features the faces of the wave of Chinese models currently dominating magazines world wide.  My personal favorite of all these editorials is Fei Fei Sun by Mert and Marcus, which heavily features Givenchy’s jewelry.
