Milla Jovovich – Style Icon

Milla is incredible, she models, she is a great actress, and she is badass. Also, have you noticed how the characters she has portrayed in films have become go-to style references, and awesome Halloween costumes – Leeloo from The Fifth Element, Alice from Resident Evil, and Katinka Inga Bogovinanana from Zoolander. On top of acting, she has been in ad campaigns for Chanel, Escada, ICB, and The Gap.

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.

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.


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.
