shot by karim sadli, i-D magazine takes a focused look on the casting of daniel peddle & drew dasent for the legendary house of givenchy. the casting phenomenon & influential power of the house of givenchy are something straight out of a dream for most models- spotlighting the phenomenal cast is more than necessary. booking a givenchy show can lead to a number of other fashion opportunities for male & female models alike. booking givenchy allows models to transcend onto the next level. ethnically diverse, not many can surpasss or even equal to the power & creative force of riccardo tisci, the creative director of givenchy- he sets the trends for what the rest of the high fashion realm follow. what’s most admirable about the casting of givenchy is the attraction to new & unknown models, it’s that fearlessness to break new ground that allows all elements of fashion, style & modeling to transform into something unseen, something original & artistically inspired. it goes without saying that givenchy has one of the best male & female models casts every season; on the runway & also through campaigns.

lady gaga for i-d

poised to be honored at this years CFDA awards as a fashion icon, lady gaga has made no attempts to go full steam ahead with her intent to conquer the world of pop culture, music & fashion through constant exposure & in your face attitude. shot in this grayscaled image by mariano vivanco, gaga is on a quest to use her new album as a platform for yet another visual transformation, borrowing influence from alexander mcqueen’s SS10 plato’s atlantis collection; which was the platform gaga used to debut her international smash, “bad romance”. in using prosthetics, gaga is knowledgeable in her efforts to adapt bits & pieces from others & apply them to her ‘fame dripped’ persona.  already a developed fashion darling, gaga’s stylish is the creative director of the revived thierry mugler label, which gaga walked & sonically soundtracked in paris for both the labels menswear & womenswear shows. in addition to being heavily involved at mugler, rick genest, the face of mugler menswear, also appears in her “born this way” music video, which is the lead single of her album of the same title. while the most interesting thing about gaga is her habits of constant image hi-jacking, i will say that this cover is stunning & her mcqueen inspiration is well applied. but at which point do celebrities & their labels decide that you’ve surpassed the level of overexposure. from the runway to the charts, on the blogs & front page news. isn’t gaga tiring us as an audience.
