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!

New Mad Men Cast Portraits

There are some juggernaut dramas all coming back at the same time in the next two months, namely Game of Thrones, Penny Dreadful, Orphan Black and the last episodes of Mad Men.  The anticipation of these final hours of one of the best modern television shows is high, especially answering the question of how will it end.  The cast portraits for the last half of the seventh season have these characters coming to the end of the 60s, with the woman in a mix of early hippie glam and Victorian via the 70s.   The cast portraits from THR made me realize yet again how much I’m going to miss these beautiful, beautiful faces.

LouLou, Gigi, Charlotte and Cara by Sebastian Faena

Sebastian Faena is a master of the subtly erotic.  Using vintage inspired black and white photography, languid poses, expressions of joy turning into ecstascy, he presents couture-clad models looking gorgeously sexy.  When a modern style is needed, his ability to capture the model’s personality comes out, and he engages the viewer through their direct eye contact.  Both these shoots are perfect examples of his talent.

Linda Evangelista & more by Sebastian Faena for Bazaar, September 2014

The September issues of most major fashion magazines this year really celebrated the model, and paid excellent tribute to the Supers. The Bazaar UK was no exception, with a fantastic cover of Linda Evangelista shot by Sebastian Faena and a 18-page spread inside of models including many of the Supers – like Linda, Cindy, and Claudia; new faces like Gigi Hadid and Stacy Martin; actress/models like Penelope Cruz and Monica Bellucci; and timeless icons like Iman and Lauren Hutton.

The issue also features a lovely little spread of Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter Emma Ferrer shot by Richard Avedon’s grandson Michael Avedon. What a lovely homage both to Audrey and to Avedon’s work! Emma is a beautiful model, I look forward to seeing more of her.

New Editorials of Gigi Hadid

I’ve posted before about this up and coming new model, Gigi Hadid and her glorious revival of the lush 80s supermodel look. Her fresh face, curly, big hair and curves are a beautiful flashback to the heyday of the Supers, when it was more about shape and personality. On top of being one of the rookies in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and walking during New York Fashion Week she’s also been photographed by Sebastian Faena for three different editorials, as well as by Bruce Weber for Carine Rotfield’s magazine, and now by famed fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, whose photography helped to enforce that Supermodel look.
