Tim Walker Editorials for Vogue Italia, December 2015

December 9th, 2015|Categories: Fashion Editorials, Fashion Models, Fashion Photographers|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

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.

Cate Blanchett by Karim Sadli for T Style Magazine, Fall 2015

I watch the Carol trailer every day to give me strength to carry on. It’s a masterpiece! Cate & Rooney look like they stepped directly out of a 1950s gay dream. Of course Todd Haynes is going to deliver us 1950s dreamy gay perfection. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, before you read another word, go! Treat yourself! While you’re at it, go read the 1952 novel “The Price of Salt” by Patricia Highsmith (who also wrote The Talented Mister Ripley series) & treat yourself to even more gay beauty! Stop reading my stupid words! Read an entire book & get back to me!

There! Wasn’t it beautiful? Now we can continue. Cate Blanchett delivers some retro dame portrait realness in this small but stunning story for the T Style Magazine by Karim Sadli. The issue also features a fantastic shoot by the enchanting (and adorably named) Binx Walton by Glen Luchford. Bless us this season for two amazing Luchford editorials! (this and the Natalie Westling shoot from the Vogue Paris). Edie Campbell also stars as a fashion ghost in the misty countryside in a perfectly spooky shoot by Inez & Vinoodh. Autumn is the best! Fuck you summer!

Forces of Fashion for Vogue US, September 2015

This set of photos is a real fashion over-stimulation! Instead of speaking of it in a general term, I’m going to pick a few specific pictures to point out. If, however, I WAS going to speak of it in a general term I would say: YASSSSS! COMBINE MANY MODELS/MANY FASHION-FORWARD CELEBRITIES/ALL THE MOST INSPIRED DESIGNERS/A MIX OF WELL KNOWN AND UP-AND-COMING PHOTOGRAPHERS/AND HALF A DOZEN STYLISTS AND GIVE ME ALL THE FASHION GLORY! I CAN HANDLE IT! GIVE IT TO ME! I CAN’T HANDLE IT! GIVE IT TO ME ANYWAY!

Something like that.

That being said. Please take note of my five favourite images:

1. Beyoncé in Givenchy & designer Riccardo Tisci by Anton Corbijn
I mean, duh doy. But this shot alone is gorgeous. Beyoncé as a literal force of nature (for she is the WIND!) with Tisci sprawled at her feet, confident that she’s bringing glory to his art. It’s perfect. Also, I love the way Jay Z says Tisci in concert. It’s adorable.

2. Caroline Trentini in Dior, Karlie Kloss in Oscar de la Renta, & Raquel Zimmermann in McQueen- by Jamie Hawkesworth
This is the second shot in the 27 page spread. WHAT IF I TALK ABOUT ALL OF THEM? I will try to limit myself. But this shot looks like a shot from an early 90s Vogue, which is the Vogue baby Bo was first introduced to, so it’s where my heart lives. What a perfect trio of girls to create this iconic inspiration. Also I love when models cuddle. It’s adorable.

3. Raquel Zimmermann in Valentino by Tim Walker
This is a perfect trio of talent, all made for each other. I wish there was an entire spread of just Raquel with her renaissance look, wearing romantic Valentino, captured by Walker’s whimsical eye.

4. FKA Twigs in Prada by Inez & Vinoodh
If I saw this Prada outfit on anyone but Twigs I would have just drifted right over it, but she can literally wear anything and use her doll-beauty and magnificently contorting limbs to make anything work. I imagine Inez & Vinoodh were positively giddy to work with someone as strange and artistic and unique as themselves. This shot is positively iconic. I adore it.

5. Nicholas Hoult in Tom Ford by Theo Wenner
This picture would only be more perfect if Ford was in the shot with Nicholas. CAN YOU IMAGINE? I’M IMAGINING IT RIGHT NOW! I have such a thing for anything that combines the stars of A Single Man + Tom Ford. So any time Tom is Julianne Moore’s date to an event, or every time I see Colin Firth I think, “OUCH! MY HEART!” then “OOH! THAT’S HOT!” Nicholas + Tom is my favourite pairing though. It’s just so much throwback perfection. My heart, it aches.

A few additional notes: I love that Maggie Rizer is in a shot next to Karen Elson! KISS HER! Is that the Bjork All Is Full of Love robot in the Edie Campbell by Tim Walker shot? I’m going to imagine it is and it’s inviting Edie back to her Bjork love-pod. The Cara and Gigi and Adele portraits are gorgeous! Such lens piercing goodness! That last shot bums me out and makes me want to overdose on pictures of women to make up for having to look at it. But we accept all parts of those we love, and I love this editorial!

David Sims Love Editorials, Fall/Winter 2015-16

August 17th, 2015|Categories: Fashion Editorials, Fashion Models, Fashion Photographers|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Just as I was starting to complain that the Love magazine had lost its spark, it delivers a sparkling issue. David Sims shot four small, but gorgeous separate editorials for the issue – the forever enchanting Kate Moss in a dreamy black and white shoot; Edie Campbell in a small, but inspired shoot that resembles a Juergen Teller editorial; Ruth Bell in a strange and stunning shoot featuring McQueen designs; and Mia Goth in a shoot that looks like a Kate Moss story from the 90s, featuring Sims’ recognizable talent at capturing moody light and stark gazes. Each shoot is so different than the other, it’s a delight to see David Sims’ versatility at work with these very unique models.

Edie Campbell by Patrick Demarchelier for Interview, May 2015

Edie Campbell is giving us some badass Richard Prince biker babe goodness in this editorial by Patrick Demarchelier for the current issue of Interview. Most Demarchelier editorials are romantic location shoots, I love this bold black and white studio shoot.
