MOTHER OF DRAGONS! Vincent Peters lends his sumptuous creamy black and white style to these stunning retro photos of Emilia Clarke for the November issue of Esquire. Quick aside: what even is this disaster of a cover layout? Layouts are important, people! Messy junk like this pulls away from great pictures. It’s very frustrating! That aside, this is an amazing spread. Emilia has improved so much as a model over the years, and she bewitches the camera in every shot.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stars in this extra pretty shoot by Alexi Lubomirski for the September Issue of Bazaar UK. She looks like a pastel princess! Also featured in the issue is a moody shoot by Vincent Peters of Maryna Linchuk. What I love best about a Vincent Peters shoot is that the retouching is gorgeous and skillful. Every photo looks like a romantic painting.

Maryna Linchuk by Vincent Peters for Bazaar UK, September 2015
I am so glad that stylists are finally realizing that KStew is not a high femme and are finally allowing her to wear her own soft butch look. She’s infinitely more comfortable in front of the camera now when she can wear some menswear or her own jewelry. I’m also really happy to see the French embracing her since her being winning the Casaer, the first American actress to win the French version of the Oscar in history. KStew’s acting is improving, and her doing films like Still Alice with Julianne Moore and Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche are proof of that.
The Spring/Summer issue of Vs Magazine is a triumph! Featuring 6 similar covers of 6 actress/models by 6 separate photographers, and then 6 very different styled editorials of the ladies inside, each shoot is moody and distinct. I personally most adore the femme fatale shoot of Elizabeth Olsen by Hunter and Gatti, the playful photos Abbey Lee by Ellen von Unwerth, and the darkly sensual story by Jonas Bresnan of Zoe Kravitz.

Natalia Vodianova by Mario Testino for Vanity Fair, September 2014
A model on the cover of a magazine?! And on the cover of Vanity Fair?! What is this, the 90s? This means that Vanity Fair has blatantly outshone Vogue, who has fading nobody Blake Lively on their cover. Oh Vogue Magazine, you continue to fail more and more every month, even without doing anything. Natalia Vodinova has been a favorite of ours since she entered the fashion world over 10 years ago. Her innocent yet knowing gaze penetrates the lens as if she’s looking directly at you.
Dita Von Teese by Davis Factor for FLAUNT #135
Dita never disappoints – her look in consistent yet always evolving, and she responds to the camera beautifully. Also there’s a picture of her in a projection of The Dark Knight Rises which creates an interesting dilemma for me – what would I look at, Dita or my favorite Batman movie?
January Jones by Vincent Peters for Vogue Italia, August 2014
Only two of these, but they are both stunning. Never forget what a beautiful blonde queen that January Jones is.
