gisele for vogue paris

represented by IMG under special bookings, brazilian runway legend, gisele graces the cover of the first emmanuelle alt chiefed issue for vogue paris. seen on the cover of the publications april issue, gisele appears through the lens of inez + vinoodh outfitted in dolce & gabbana. as the first cover in a new beginning for the publication, alt’s position has sparked reports of a new, more commercialized & very french, version of vogue paris. im very excited to see what changes will be introduced for vogue paris under alt’s direction & always applaud a gisele booking.  the cover is a beautiful representation of the spring season & gisele is the posterchild of effortless beauty. great cover, can’t wait for the rest of the issue.

givenchy spring couture model identification

what yo’ name iz? ming xi of ford, hye park of trump, liu wen & ai tominaga of marilyn management
front: shu pei of next, tao okamoto of ford, fei fei sun of women, jiang xiao yi of silent, so young kang of marilyn, du juan  of IMG

as the house of givenchy continues to lead the pack with a brilliantly executed design direction for the SS11 haute couture season, 10 asian female models were cast in this stunning set of couture & models. the influence asia has projected onto the international fashion market in the last six months is staggering, with high end luxury retailers opening stores in the droves, this collection by ricardo tisci solidifies the height of this era. while some females that were cast are, or should be familiar, a few new faces are seen as well; liu wen is seen in the back row, third from left & has made history as the first east asian female model to book an estee lauder contract. while tao okamoto has blazed trails in fashion as a prominent japanese female model since she was signed to elite back in 2006. since then tao has signed with ford. fei fei sun, shu pei, jian xiao 7 so young kang have all appeared here along with editorial appearances for numero china & numero tokyo. this is a historical move for models of color & a beautiful concept that was exectuted wonderfully. one thing i admire & respect of the house of givenchy is their fearlessness to break barriers. beautiful details can be seen from a distance & this is a first look at the complete SS11 collection. a beautiful preview, completely inspiring. i am completely stunned & intensely inspired.

daria werbowy + clement chabernaud for ferragamo, spring

mario testino photographed daria werbowy of IMG models & clement chaubernaud of wilhelmina for the SS11 salvatore ferragamo ad campaign. refined & classically styled with a bit of italian influence- the images are perfectly produced for the spring season. the direction of spring is always much more relaxed than those of the fall; that sense of relaxation is projected well through these images by testino. the use of natural light & shadows is done beautifully. fitting for the season, completely.

the complete gucci spring campaign starring joan smalls

what yo’ name iz?  joan smalls, karmen pedaru, hailey clauson, nikola jovanovic

not many feats in the fashion industry can make me gasp, but joan smalls is one model that has me on the edge of my seat every step of the way. through the lens of mert + marcus, joan smalls appears in this slight preview alongside karmen pedaru for the spring 2011 gucci campaign. you may recall seeing joan appear alongside raquel zimmermann for the gucci pre-fall 2010 campaign; & now it seems as though ms. smalls has become a certified gucci girl. seen printed in the february issue of british elle, this is our first look at the new campaign images. im completely overjoyed to see that joan has been successfully embraced in the world of high end fashion. along with her recent contract signing with estee lauder & now this, 2011 is shaping up to be the year of joan smalls. represented by IMG, joan appears along side  karmen pedaru of ford. though not seen here, speculation leads me to believe that hailey clauson of marilyn management was shot for this campaign as well, granted she walked the runway for the house of gucci for the SS11 show season in milan. male model, nikola jovanovic of ford models is seen along with karmen & joan for this season as well, proving him to be a gucci guy fave. joan is stunning!!
