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.

Tyra Banks Returns to IMG

Last week, 36-year-old Tyra Banks announced that she is returning to work with international model management firm IMG leading people to question if she will be retuning to the runway after her retirement back in 2005. As news is being released, it seems that Tyra will be working more on the spokeswoman side lending her name and image to brands that she believes in and will be staying away from the runway.

Tyra said, “The last time I was with IMG, I was set on taking on the modeling world in the high fashion and commercial sectors. Now I’m dreaming even bigger, but this time for my company as well. Aligning myself with brands that I believe in, and helping them achieve the kind of success they’re looking for, helps all of us as we grow our businesses.”

IMG Senior Vice President Ivan Bart added, “IMG will help expand her relationships with companies through endorsements, and will assist her in developing business relationships with sponsors whose missions she feels strongly about.”

On another note, Tyra is also in the works of launching a fashion and beauty portal by the end of this year.

For this fall season, it seems that the trend for designers is to go with a softer look and New York/Paris designer Altuzarra has done just that for a sexy and feminine collection oozing confidence and fearlessness. Full of leather and mohair, the collection is very strong with the perfect mix of modern reality and harshness. Here are my favorite looks from the collection:

In designs by the likes of Alexander Wang, Roberto Cavalli, and Ann Demeulemeester, 22-year-old Danish covergirl Freja Beha Erichsen is the perfect “Tough Ballerina” in a mixture of this spring’s trends of soft and severe pieces.
