fashion for the fearless

Archive for August, 2011

Alison Arboux for Kurv Magazine #22

Alison Arboux looks gorgeous channeling Bridget Bardot in this Parisian pictorial. The look is incredibly sexy. The editorial was shot by Jonathan Segade.

Vogue China – Urban Rhythm

Editorial from Vogue China August 2011. Model Liu Wen, shot by Lachlan Bailey, styled by Anne Christensen. This pictorial is filled with great fall pieces, I especially love the plaid coat in the second image.

Siren – Bat For Lashes

Bat For Lashes, aka Natasha Khan, is an English songstress who has been a favorite among the fashion crowd since her first album, Fur And Gold, came out in 2006. Her music is beautifully melodious but moody, and honest, it lends itself perfectly to the contemporary fashion scene. Her style is her own, she mixes tank tops, vintage dresses, feathers, and glitter to create looks that would not be out of place in an LA dance club, but also make you think of fairies and magic. I love her because she says what she feels, and she seems to enjoy being herself in the spotlight. RYGGRAD girl, all the way.

V Magazine Spain – Go Wild!

Crazy fierce editorial from V Magazine Spain April 2010 issue. Model Masha Novoselova, photographed by Txema Yeste. Masha is fantastic. The energy that a story titled “Go Wild!” really needs to live up to its name is definitely there, Masha has this scary intensity in her eyes and her poses show no inhibition. She can’t be tamed.

Vogue Italia August 2011 “Chic Mood”

Models Joan Smalls, Karmen Pedaru & Ming Xi star in this moody fall pictorial, photographed by Emma Summerton. The styling is very lady-like but with a serious dose of dominatrix.

Hailey Gates in Paris, Texas

Editorial from July/August 2011 issue of Jalouse Magazine. Featuring actress Hailey Gates, who dawns a short blonde wig for the shoot, instead of her signature long brunette hair. Shot by Stacey Mark, titled “Paris, Texas”. The sexy French girl bored in a hotel room thing isn’t anything new, but I like how it’s done. The styling is not overdone, it feels real, nostalgic, and fun.

Sasha Pivovarova for Vogue Japan August 2011 by Hedi Slimane

Hedi Slimane’s photography has really captured the attention of the fashion world. His work is truly iconic. This pictorial, titled “Tough Love”, is featured in the August 2011 issue of Vogue Japan, it stars Sasha Pivovarova. Hedi had also photographed Sasha for Paris Vogue back in 2008, that editorial is still one of my all-time favorites. This one is styled by Mika Mizutani, incorporating pieces from Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Rick Owens, and Haider Ackermann.
