Craig McDean for Another Magazine

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.


Fashion Icon – Annie Lennox

Annie Lennox is a great example of a strong woman who does what she thinks is right and who conquered the world with confidence and sheer talent. This season, with the popularity of menswear-inspired womenswear, Lennox is the perfect fashion muse to look to. The current trend of tuxedo jackets is something she has been doing since the eighties. Recently she has turned all her attention to activism, like her SING charity witch raises funds for HIV/AIDS education and treatment. She is also not the only Lennox in the fashion world anymore, her daughter Tali Lennox is now modeling and has already been in a Burberry campaign.

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.


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.


Frances Bean Cobain by Hedi Slimane

Frances Bean Cobain is the daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, she is now 18, and ready to step out on her own. Hedi Slimane did this shoot with her, and the pictures are amazing. Frances got her father’s beautiful eyes and her mother’s pouty lips, in other words, she is gorgeous. In the shoot she really pays homage to her parents, and looks every bit the teenage offspring of two grunge icons. I can’t wait to see more of her.


Love Magazine Issue #6 Fall/Winter 2011

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.
