karolina kurkova for vogue españa

shot by tom munro, karolina kurkova appears for the january issue of vogue españa.represented by IMG, karolina ranks as the no. 7 highest earning female model in fashion & also holds ranks as the no. 19 sexiest. hailing from the czech republic, kurkova was discovered by miuccia prada at the age of 15 & continues to hold relevance in today’s competitive high end & commericial markets. i love the combination of a stark white backdrop against low saturation of military greens. glad to see karolina landing a cover & tom munro shot this beautifully. entering the new year, publications are steadily & consistently creating dope shit.

the fall united colors of benetton campaign

what yo’ name iz?
corey baptiste, charlie france,
francisco lachowski,  luis borges, abiah hostvedt, willy cartier,
kirby kenny, chrishell stubbs, sharon kavjian,
ann kenny, hind sahli

an extended look at the FW10 campaign is provided through this set, which was shot by josh olins. staying in line with their signature white studio backdrop & high contrast styling, the campaign is noticeably more lifeless this season. at first glance, i dubbed the campaign as lifeless & colorless- after seeing the first shot. i completely admire the bennetton brand for always breaking barriers & basically creating a prototype for what commercially marketed apparel companies should be doing. much of what bennetton does is very relative to both H&M & the gap. being that the brand has been in existence since 1965, its clear that they have become a leader for other competing companies. we see a few faces we know in the form of abiah hostevedt, francisco lachowski, corey baptiste & chrishell stubbs. maybe it’s because im used to the contrast being turned waaay up with their campaigns, but even with the additions of color- models & clothes alike, the campaign still lacks intrigue.

alessandra ambrosio for vogue brazil

represented by elite model management, alessandra ambrosio is on a mission to conquer the high end fashion editorial game & appears on the july cover of vogue brazil. shot by jacques dequeker, styling for the spread was done by giovanni frasson with hair & make-up by robert estevão. while i love the feature editorial- styling, set & all; i really dont like that the cover seems so aesthetically disconnected from what was done editorially. take for instance the gucci dress on the cover, you dont even see anything even remotely similar in the styled pieces seen in the spread- while the textured walls & victorian elements of the spread add charm & depth, the washed out background of the cover come off as bland. i believe that the cover should grab you & move you to purchase the issue- not leave you guessing & have you surprised when you actually open the issue. i fully appreciate  ambrosio for the july issue, but would’ve liked to see much more creative effort from the cover to the feature spread.

editorialesque » julia stegner for tush

for the second issue of tush, cover girl of the month julia stegner appears in the extended version of her cover image in vibrant colors & a cocaine white backdrop. i love the styling for the spread, this is an example of why i love white backdrops so much. its clean & allows the clothing to show. great use of color & contrast with styling & who doesnt love a slick up-do & a cat eye on any chick? julia is represented by IMG models & is completely killing it with the pink backpack & black balloons.
