Recent Karlie Kloss Editorials

Here’s a little Karlie collection to marvel. Karlie is one of the models that honours the Power of the Super with her impish gaze and distinct look, while still looking modern and unique. I love her ridiculously strong body and her ability to contort her frame into impossible lines. I think Karlie, Coco Rocha, and Anna Cleveland are the most talented posers in the biz. Yeah, I just said biz! I’m coming down with a cold and I had weird sex dreams all night, I can say whatever I want! So while I continue to ramble to myself, how about y’all look at this darling portrait shoot of Karlie by Emma Tempest for the September issue of Sunday Times Style, a late summer bit of whimsy by Pamela Hanson for Paris Match, and a perfectly scrumptious Super Karlie shoot by Mario Testino for the October issue of Vogue China.

In addition to the fantastic cover story of Léa Seydoux by Craig McDean, the November issue of Vogue UK also features a delightfully leggy cheeky editorial of Liv Tyler photographed by Venetia Scott and styled by Kate Moss. Two fashion editorials in particular stand out, both spectacularly odd, but enchanting – one kicky studio shoot that mixes mod & modern of Karlie Kloss by Patrick Demarchelier and a location/studio shoot by Harley Weir of one of my favourite models, who I think isn’t given all the credit she’s due: Saskia De Brauw. Another spectacular issue of Vogue UK, which used to kind of bore me, but lately has consistently impressed me!

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!

Fall/Winter 2015 Couture – Atelier Versace and Ulyana Sergeenko

Couture week kicked off on Sunday in Paris, with two notable showings by Donatella Versace and Ulyana Sergeenko.  Both highly stylized brands played up their strengths.  Coming back from a rather ludicrous showing last season of dresses with hashtags on them, Versace reminded us what this house is capable of.  The collection was almost whimsical in it’s delicateness – at least as delicate as Versace can be.  And Sergeenko, who’s known for her vintage inspired pieces, emphasized the bias cut shape and cat eye sunglasses the label has come to be known for.

Karlie Kloss and others by Bruce Weber for Porter #8, Summer 2015

April 8th, 2015|Categories: Fashion Editorials, Fashion Models, Fashion Photographers|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Bruce Weber editorials are true photo stories – often very long, always full of languid, impish charm, and usually including puppies! This 43 page editorial, starring Karlie Kloss, and featuring Luke Flynn, Maxim Budnick, Mauza Antonio, Audrey Harrelson, and Maya Baudom is a colourful celebration of playful summer fun.
