Fantastic images, love every detail. Craig McDean is incredible. This editorial is from the September 2008 issue of Another. Styled by Marie Amalie Sauve, featuring models Amanda Laine, Bridget Hall, Guinevere van Seenus, Han Hye Jin, Jessica Stam, Kinga Rajzak, Missy Rayder, Siri Tollerod, Suvi Koponen, Taryn Davidson, and Tasha Tilberg. Dreamy, or trippy actually, this pictorial is like a world from the mind of an artist gone mad. Every shot can be an art piece on its own, I would actually love to decorate my walls with these. Look at the detail of the jacket in the fifth image down, amazing.
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.
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.
Photographers Mert and Marcus may have outdone themselves in the Fall/Winter issue of Love Magazine. They shot 8 covers for the issue featuring Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning, Hailee Steinfeld, Nyasha Matonhodze, Lara Stone, Mariacarla Boscono, Kristen McMenamy, and Daphne Groeneveld. The styling is by Katie Grand, Arianne Phillips, and Panos Yiapanis. The issue is titled Super Natural, and it definitely has a fairy tale theme. The covers are beautiful and the editorial shots inside do not disappoint.
Models with great fashion sense are our muses. Here are some great outfits worn by our favorite chicks.
There is an insane 65-page pictorial in the August 2011 issue of French Vogue. It’s titled “Escape to LA” as the whole thing was shot in Los Angeles. The model cast for the spread is as mind-blowing as it’s length, it includes Lara Stone (official current goddess of French Vogue), Arizona Muse, Natasha Poly, Isabeli Fontana, Raquel Zimmermann, and our girl, Freja Beha Erichsen. It was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Each model has her own setting and style, each one different from the others. It’s hard to pick a favorite. Instead, I’m posting a shot from each model’s pictorial, and maybe a couple more that I just can’t bear not posting.
Very surreal and haunting editorial, brings to mind Japanese horror films, very beautiful. Models Sui He and Aline Weber, photographed by Glen Luchford, styled by Beat Bolliger.
Ros Georgiou is another rising star of the modeling world. This is an editorial spread from the June 2011 issue of AMICA Magazine. Love the look of the strong eyebrows and the natural-looking volume of her hair.
There is so much great stuff in the 71st (spring/summer 2011) issue of V Magazine, I don’t even know where to start. This editorial titled “Girls On Top” features models Fei Fei Sun, Liu Wen, Tao Okamoto, and Shu Pei. It’s shot by Terry Tsiolis and styled by Jay Massacret. I love the styling, great strong pieces without many accessories make for outfits with confidence.
This spread would have been very appropriate to post on Independence Day, however, I hadn’t seen it until last night. This editorial is from Elle France, the June 2011 issue. Shot by Fred Meylan, styled by Anne Marie Brouillet. It’s titled Summer of Rock and it definitely has a Janis Joplin/Americana theme. Erin Wasson is perfect for this spread, this Texas native is the quintessential cool American chick. She makes a great representative of American style.
Happy 4th of July Ryggrad girls!
Feeling a little teen angst from this editorial, and loving the styling.
Very powerful and captivating editorial titled “Rive Gauche et Libre”, shot by Mert & Marcus (Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott) for Vogue Paris September 2010 issue. Featuring models Malgosia Bela, Daphne Groeneveld, Andrej Pejic, Josh Parkinson, and Lea T. Styled by Carine Roitfeld. The title translated is “Left Bank and Free”, “left bank” refers to the region of Paris that is a mecca for young artists, and “free” to the freedom from the confignment of traditional sexual roles in society. The editorial celebrates androgyny, the blurring of the line between what is feminine and masculine. The stand out pages to me were the ones featuring Daphne and Andrej. The images of Andrej from this spread have become almost iconic, the image with the rose is as recognizable as his very controversial Dossier ad, that caused such a stir.
For their summer issue V Magazine Spain did a great editorial with a retro cheeky schoolgirl theme, and they got all the newest cool chics of the modeling world to be in it. Codie Young, Hannah Noble, Ros Georgou, Annabella Tsaboukas, Kate King, Marique Schimmel, Maud Welzen, Kat Hessen, and our favorite, Ruby Aldridge. Shot by Terry Tsiolis. These are my five favorite pages.
This isn’t exactly recent but it’s worth looking at if you haven’t seen it already. This editorial from Another Magazine Spring 2009 issue features English actress Tilda Swinton. Swinton portrays the witch in the Chronicles of Narnia, and the angel Gabriel in Constantine. She definitely has an ethereal quality to her that captures the imagination, and this editorial is breath-taking. Shot by Craig McDean.
Completely adore supermodel Anja Rubik. This is such a cool editorial, it’s mysterious, has a retro feel, and every image is captivating. Shot by Victor Demcarchelier. Featured in the February 2011 issue of Viva Moda.
Editorial titled “Tribal” from the Numéro magazine’s 124th issue is so good. Model Hailey Clauson, shot by Sebastian Kim, styled by Charles Varenne. Love, love, love…
This is a great lookbook, the photography really takes you into a different world, that’s gritty and beautiful. Shot by Hugh Lippe.
Editorial styled by Jean Paul Gaultier for Les Echos Magazine, starring one of our muses, Coco Rocha.
The Western theme is a trend for this spring, but you don’t have to go the camel and turquoise route once again. Get some inspiration from this French Vogue editorial and play the wild west’s villain.
Model – Isabeli Fontana
Photographer – David Sims
Sang Bleu is a UK magazine that covers fashion/art/contemporary culture/counterculture, and features beautiful black and white photography. This is an editorial spread from 2010 featuring model Alice Dellal, who some people are calling the new Kate Moss these days. These images, absolutely fantastic.
