This candy-coated vintage looking shoot of Natalie Portman by Norman Jean Roy makes my heart a’flutter! We’ve been Natalie Portman fans since the days of Leon and Beautiful Girls, so seeing her look evolve, but her playful spirit remain over the past 20 years has been delightful. She’s so emotive and stunning, and Norman Jean Roy’s style has become positively iconic, resembling fashion photos from the 40s, without looking contrived or copied. Gorgeous. Go treat yourself to a copy of this beautiful issue!

And hey, why not do a little Black Swan throwback & look at these lovely photos of Mila Kunis by Boo George for the July 11th issue of Telegraph Magazine. Those eyes!

Recent Anna Ewers Editorials

Anna Ewers is such a Bardot/Schiffer vixen. I love these recent shoots for the May issues of Bazaar and W. Norman Jean Roy really captures Anna’s bombshell beauty and, while Ewers doesn’t have the usual look for one of Ventia Scott’s muses, she still delivers a perfect 60s doll look in the shoot.

Rihanna delivers two very strong, unique editorials this month with a stunning underwater editorial for Bazaar US by Norman Jean Roy and a fantastic throwback shoot for the i-D by Paolo Roversi that desperately makes me want to watch Poetic Justice.

Yay, kitties!

Julianne Moore recreates famous works of art for Harper’s Bazaar by Peter Lindbergh, May 2008

One of my favourite themes in editorials is when famous works of art are recreated as fashion. This shoot Julianne Moore did with Peter Lindbergh in 2008 is one of the best. In it she poses in couture fashions and recreates works by artists like the one pictured above where she manifests as one of Edgar Degas’ dancers in Armani Privé, as well as shots by artists ranging from 19th century portrait artist John Singer Sargent to provocateur Richard Prince. Julianne’s milk-pale dappled skin, gorgeous bone structure, and transformative talent lends itself perfectly to this awe-inspiring shoot. Below are the shots of Julianne alongside the work recreated for the shot.
