MODEL MOMENT: NAOMI, LINDA, KATE, AND CHRISTY COVER INTERVIEW MAGAZINE SEPTEMBER 2013

25 Aug

 

Interview-September-2013

Have my eyes deceived me? Is this a sign of covers to come? I want to scream with excitement because I can finally post a Model Moment segment with real life models!!!!!! And these aren’t just any models…. these are SUPERMODELS!! The supermodel rat pack, which consisted of Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Naomi Campbell, strutted and posed their way to the top of the high fashion runway model food chain in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Kate Moss was apart of it as well, but I will always have a soft spot for the model trinity of Turlington, Evangelista and Campbell.

Also along for the ride Stephanie Seymour, Daria Werbowy, and Amber Valletta. The photos were shot by Mert & Marcus for the 2013 September issue of Interview, aptly titled The Model Issue. If you remember they also shot Cara Delevingne for W magazine’s 2013 September issue.

I cannot wait to get my hands on one! In order for this to continue people have to buy the issues to show these publications that you’d rather see a model than a celeb on the covers. W and Interview got it right, this is what September issues should look like!

Is this the return of models on magazines? And what’s next in the wonderful world of fashion… actual designers instead of the celebrity ones?!  A girl can dream can’t she….

MODEL MOMENT: THE SEPTEMBER ISSUES 2013

19 Aug

It is often said that “September is the January of the fashion world”.  Ahh, such an exciting time! Let’s take a look at a few of the magazines I recently picked up.

I was pleased to see Sarah Jessica Parker flashing her dazzling smile for Terry Richardson in a glittery Marc Jacobs dress. Very Carrie Bradshaw!

Harper's Bazaar US

Judging by the cover, I didn’t think the photos of Ms. Barrymore would be that great. But thankfully I was wrong. Her photos were wonderful, shot by Michelangelo Di Battista and styled by Melissa Rubini.

Instyle

I normally never buy Lucky, but that changed  when I saw Serena van der Woodsen on the cover!  Mrs. Ryan Reynolds never disappoints in the fashion department and this issue proved that. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele.

Lucky Magazine

I like Jennifer Lawrence, I really do. This cover on the other hand… I could do without. Vogue is the original, the Holy Grail in the fashion world, so why on earth would this shot make the cover?! Where’s the fashion? Where’s the style? This cover does nothing for the Oscar winner’s unique beauty. It looks like she took a senior picture, that just so happened to be fabulous enough to make the cover of Vogue.

Vogue

I have to give major props to W Magazine for putting a real model on the cover of their September Issue. I mean seriously, my Model Moment segments are usually filled with actresses or singers on the covers of magazines and ads. There’s nothing wrong with that, however I feel we need to see models back on the covers of our favorite fashion publications. Thankfully, W read my mind. Mert Alas & Marcus photographed Cara Delevingne and her fabulously arched eyebrows for the coveted cover, wearing Marc Jacobs.

Harper's Bazaar Australia 2013

This cover is STUNNING! I saw this earlier and was literally more blown away than Scarlett was. September issues are known to be the best in the fashion industry and this cover proves it. Scarlett Johansson + Dolce & Gabbana dress = A magazine that I will definitely be buying!

MODEL MOMENT: RITA ORA FOR GQ UK & TEEN VOGUE AUGUST 2013

I'm getting a Brittany Murphy vibe from this cover!

I’m getting a Brittany Murphy vibe from this cover!

Rita Ora makes her second appearance in the MODEL MOMENT segment and with good reason. The British songstress covers next months issue of British GQ and is featured in the August edition of Teen Vogue. Miss Ora’s portfolio is quickly filling up, both of these spreads show as much versatility as her music.  I’m guessing BFF Cara Delevingne’s model mystique has definitely rubbed off.

Just last Thursday, I paid homage to Pat Cleveland and all her achievements by featuring her as  the SUPERMODEL FLASHBACK of the week. And what perfect timing that was, considering she is featured in the lookbook for  Zac Posen Resort 2014. Starring alongside her is her gorgeous daughter Anna.

“I was really proud to be shooting mother and daughter Pat and Anna Cleveland. “It was a magic moment. It felt so iconic. I felt like we were expanding for the public the age range of how fashion is shown today.”  – Zac Posen

RITA ORA, the British, RocNation songstress stuns in Chanel Haute Couture on the cover of the May  ‘WOMEN IN MUSIC’ issue for ELLE magazine. I am not familiar with Miss Ora’s music. but I am definitely familiar with her fashion choices. She appears countless times on fashion sites, often getting criticized for her London style, however this couture spread may silence a lot of doubters.

"Tulle, organza, and feather dress, leather gloves, over-the-knee boots, all, Chanel Haute Couture".

Chanel Haute Couture from head-to-toe.

Embroidered tulle bustier dress, and gloves, all, Dior Haute Couture. Lycra-tubing beanie, Philip Treacy.

MODEL MOMENT: CASTA, CHOUPETTE, AND KARL OH MY!

26 Nov

The recipe for a great photo are as follows: 1 amazing photographer, 1 or 2 models (the amount can vary), a fabulous set, backdrop, or landscape, couple racks of designer pieces straight from the runways, and 1 stylist to put the high fashion visuals together.  Stir and enjoy!

Laetitia Casta was photographed by the legend himself, Karl Lagerfeld (sigh, is there anything this man can’t do) for a spread in V magazine #79 issue, serving as the back drop was The Eiffel Tower. Casta posed with the ever glamourous Choupette, Karl’s beloved cat companion. A recipe for  PUURRFECTION
