Here are some photos I took from the December ArtWalk in Downtown Los Angeles:
Magazine: V FASHION Fall 2010
Editorial: City of God
Photographer: Mario Sorrenti
Stylist: Jane How
Model: Natasha Poly (WOMEN)
In the most recent issue of V FASHION, 25-year-old Russian supermodel Natasha Poly, who was recently the face of Gucci for the spring/summer 2010 season, is featured in an editorial entitled “City of God” translating a religious underworld inspired by the movie “Holy Mountain.”
I was really drawn to this editorial because first of all, I love Natasha and I find everything she’s in to be spectacularly beautiful, but mostly due to the way it feels like they are poking fun at religion. I find that to be very intriguing.
I also love that this editorial does not just show a beautiful girl in perfectly styled designs posed prettily. Instead, the editorial stays true to it’s inspiration showing Natasha with bugs crawling all over her face and licking someone’s fist, but in absolutely stunning designs of course.
Magazine: Numéro #114 June/July 2010
Editorial: Le Dame du Lac (The Dame of the Lake)
Photographer: Jeff Burton
Model: Guinevere van Seenus (IMG)
Stylist: Franck Benhamou
Although many may not find the ghostly white skin beautiful these days especially with all the fake tanners available, I find pale skin to be very beautiful and pure and 32-year-old Guinevere van Seenus embodies that vision in an editorial entitled “Le Dame du Lac” or “The Dame of the Lake” for the 114th issue of Numéro for this June and July. Whimsically shot by photographer Jeff Burton by a dreamy lake, stylist Franck Benhamou dressed Guinevere in designs by the likes of Chanel, Versace, Herve Leger, Lanvin, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and John Galliano.
Fashion’s finest queer and crude artist AleXsandro Palombo‘s latest subjects are Chanel‘s head designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld and Vogue‘s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in a strange baby scenario. I really enjoy these pieces because they are very interesting and definitely evoke a strong emotion.
I randomly came upon the cutest clutch I’ve seen yet from Chanel by their head designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld. This lucite clear cassette clutch was released a couple of years ago going for $1500 at ShopLuxirare.com. You better get one now before they stop producing this one-of-a-kind clutch!
Inspired by Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick’s wild relationship, photographer Karl Lagerfeld created a “Factory Story” cover shoot for this month’s issue of French magazine Madame Figaro featuring his current muse 37-year-old French model Vanessa Paradis in Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld designs channeling retro glamour with Karl playing Andy Warhol.
Magazine: Vogue Nippon June 2010
Editorial: Just the Two of Us
Photographer: Glen Luchford
Models: Sigrid Agren (ELITE) & Patricia ven der Vilet (NEW YORK)
Stylist: Anastasia Barbieri
This editorial entitled “Just the Two of Us” proves that fashion looks best in pairs of blondes with 19-year-old French model Sigrid Agren and 20-year-old Dutch model Patricia van der Vilet for the upcoming issue of Vogue Nippon by photographer Glen Luchford in designs by the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin, Anouschka, Dior, Etro, Sonia Rykiel, Roberto Cavalli, Burberry Prorsum, Isabel Marant, and John Galliano. From big curls and fishtail braids to fluffy puppies and gigantic bottles of Chanel perfume, Sigrid and Patricia compliment each other perfectly in this editorial.
