Cottage By The Sea

Vogue Italia featured, once again, the controversial work of fashion photographer Steven Meisel. German models Toni Garrn and Katrin Thormann star in this cinema inspired editorial entitled "Cottage by the Sea" that was published in the magazine's November 2008 issue.
Hints of Ingmar Bergman's 1966 art-film "Persona" can be seen in these ambiguous, surreal pictures taken at a beautiful but gloomy seaside location.

Reflections of Glamour

From mild, floating mist are emerging figures of perfect elegance, illusory and sophisticate. They come to life rising from the boundaries of unearthliness. That is the description of this vintage-inspired fashion editorial entitled Reflections of Glamour and featured in March 2008 issue of Vogue Italia. Photographer Steven Meisel captures ethereal looking Kamila Filipcikova and Agnete Hegelund as old-school glamour muses in a dream-like atmosphere with mirroring and dissolving effects.

Royal Couture

Here is another proof of Steven Meisel's photographic artistry in the form of a fashion editorial simply entitled “Couture”. With a styling that reminds me of 18th century European royal court paintings and especially of Queen Marie Antoinette, these Haute Couture designs are more than appropriate.
Featured in March 2005 issue of Vogue Italia the photo shoot gathers quite the bunch of top-models: Lydia Hearst, Malin Martensson, Kim Noorda, Ilona Kuodiene and Barbara Fialho.

The Enchanted Garden

Enjoy a wonderful pictorial starring supermodel Jessica Stam featured in Vogue Italia (November 2008 issue). The Enchanted Garden photo editorial, shot by London-based Norwegian photographer Sølve Sundsbø, gathers a series of surreal images in a blooming setting.
Jessica Stam plays this puckish character like depicted from a fairy tale and her angelic features, subtle smile and quirky hair-do (styled by Malcolm Edwards) helps a lot.

Recollections of the Fall

Magalie Daignault is captured by the lenses of Canadian photographer Nelson Simoneau for the October issue of Pure Magazine. The fashion editorial called "Souvenirs D'Automne" shot in a Catholic cemetery evokes Italian Cinema dramas of 50s/60s with its retro styling and with Magalie playing "la bella vedova" - a beautiful and young widow. She reminds me of sultry diva Anna Magnani in those pics, especially when dressed in the Prada black lace dress.

The Honourable Daphne Guinness

Blue-blooded socialite, style-icon and haute-couture maniacal collector Daphne Guinness plays the main part in the "Future Couture" fashion editorial featured in Italian Vogue.

The pictures, that emanate a strong ‘80s Sci-Fi movie' atmosphere, are done by American photographer Steven Klein, and are styled by the heiress herself (she's also a well known fashion journalist and stylist), hence the "armour" look, which she finds great interest in.

Gothic trend in Flair

This season's goth trend inspired French photographer Jean-François Campos to do the "Gotico" photo editorial featured in Italian Flair Magazine. The surreal atmosphere is given by an unusual encounter between fashion, embodied by Lithuanian model Giedre Dukauskaite and dance (NUBA theatre ballerini). A mix between new and old (archaic and futuristic) and a clear touch of artistic sensibility, typical for the former photojournalist are revealed through this poetic choreography.

Age of Adolescence

Here's Canadian newcomer Magalie Daignault modeling for the Chic Today magazine in a photo editorial called "The Age of Adolescence". Gosh, teens  these days are so stylish! This fashion piece describes perfectly today's young style: a playful, nonchalant, eclectic mix of designer items (Prada, Karl Lagerfeld, Calvin Klein, and Michael Kors), chain-store clothes (H&M, America Apparel) and edgy garments from exclusive new labels (Filippa K., Designers Remix, Bruns Bazaar, DDP Deep Denim).

China Fashion Syndrome

Back in October 2007, when Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi lit up the Great Wall of China with a glamorous fashion show, the two also did a photo editorial for Elle magazine called "China Syndrome".

Shot near the Olympic Village of Beijing, the photos showcased some of the designs created by Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi. The construction scenery is meant to evoke the rising Chinese fashion industry.

Karl Lagerfeld gathers models Jessica Stam, Hilary Rhoda, Heidi Mount, Angela Lindvall for an "Upper East Side mood" fashion shoot.

Pop magazine: free fall

Fascinating shots done by photographer Ryan McGinley captured model Agyness Deyn in free fall, jumping off Manhattan building fire escape. The pictures (some of them of them showing Agyness naked or half-naked) are featured in the latest issue of Pop magazine, "The 80s Excess", evoking Eighties style icon Jenny Howarth. POP Magazine's editor-in-chief Katie Grand signed the fashion editing and the result is pure visual poetry. Art and fashion are meant to push boundaries so if these shock you that is a good sign.

Avantgarde: About Couture

Usually I like fashion editorials with a story but I was pleasant impressed by these pictures from Avantgarde magazine featuring fresh face Dutch model Valerie Van der Graaf from SPS Model Management Amsterdam. She recently joined Viva Models - Paris so we'll be seing more of her. These pictures have something wintry about them without showing any cold weather décor or fashion (like fur or knits).
