georgia may jagger for versace, s/s 10

Click images to enlarge.

I’m not really sure how I feel about Georgia May as a, erhm, model. Let’s be honest here — her teeth annoy me just a wee bit. It’s not that I don’t fully embrace the concept of “imperfect beauty,” (I do, I promise!!) but I find hers to be a little distracting. She also seems incapable of making more than one facial expressions (and variations of the aforementioned). On the other hand, the photography and clothes for this campaign are impeccable. The lighting is absolutely perfect, and I simply am in love with the bold prints, bright accessories, and studded details. Especially that fully studded, jacket-and-pants ensemble. It’s a bit tough, a bit glam, and a bit chic at the same time … fabulous!

What do you think of the campaign?

age of innocence

Click images to enlarge.


The magical formula for beautiful editorials seems to be as follows: Peter Lindbergh + Natalia Vodianova. Remember this editorial? I’m not sure which year Age of Innocence (from Soon magazine) is from (I think 2006, maybe?), but it is wonderful regardless. I especially love all the images where Natalia is wearing white — it is definitely one of my favorite colors (I have enough white shirts that I could pass them all off as a legitimate collection) and it looks stunning! I really love how simple this whole piece is — it really puts all the attention on the clothes and the model. Not to say that elaborate sets aren’t fun, but it’s refreshing to see something so clean and well-executed.

karlie kloss for hermès s/s 2010

Click images to enlarge.


The first time I saw the image at the top of this post, I became obsessed with this campaign, shot by Paolo Roversi. I love Karlie Kloss, and the photographs are so fresh, colorful, and magical. The images are beautifully shot, with amazing lighting and beautiful colors. Especially the first photo — it’s so peaceful and absolutely perfect. I love that Karlie isn’t wearing a lot of makeup for this shoot (it makes it feel so clean, somehow) and I love her braid and nail polish in the top image.

What do you think of this campaign? Are you as charmed by it as I am?

spellbound

There are several reasons why I love this Harper’s Bazaar editorial (photographed by Simon Procter):

1. The clothes are incredible. Sure, there are plenty of editorials out there with cute clothes, but these ones are particularly stunning and I love the way they featured specific designers. With plenty of “Price Upon Request” options, what’s not to love? (Okay, so you’ll never be able to buy them. But they’re still fun to look at.)

2. Emma Watson is gorgeous. She’s a classic, smart beauty that tries not to let fame get to her head and I absolutely adore her for it. (And hate her a bit for it too.)

3. It’s Harry Potter themed! Admit it — at some point, you probably wanted to attend Hogwarts or play Quidditch (I know I still do). Plus it makes for a gorgeous set to showcase all the designers!

My favorite part about this Vogue Italia editorial from March 2010, photographed by Craig McDean,  has to be the hair and makeup. I love how freestyle, messy, and chic it is, and Natasha Poly looks simply stunning. Click here for all the pictures.

I came across this editorial (click for product info, etc) on Elle.com, and I must say — the colors are fabulous! The photography is wonderful, and each photograph looks like a painting! There is not one that I dislike in the entire set. Take a closer look at the group of three in the middle — they all seem to complement each other very well, no? Beautiful!

an american classic

Click images to enlarge.

Happy birthday, USA! Ralph Lauren has been a staple among fashion-forward Americans for over 40 years, and to celebrate, I’ve compiled a collection of some gorgeous ads! It seems that Valentina Zeliaeva is the go-to girl for Ralph Lauren these days — she’s absolutely beautiful, and, most importantly, classic. Still, my favorite ad here has to be the Filippa Hamilton one from December 2008 (third from the top). The colors are stunning! Click here for a timeline history of the brand, starting from its launch in 1967.

{On a side note, I’m aware that some of the photos are missing models or photographers — if you happen to know any this information, let me know and I’ll add it in!}

I’ll leave you all with a Ralph Lauren Romance ad (click here to watch!) … the quality isn’t that great, but its a lovely short film and I love that its all in black and white.

Enjoy the fireworks, America!!!

eloise grows up

I love this editorial from the July 2009 issue of Elle. The styling is gorgeous and the concept is so fresh! I especially loved the makeup for this shoot – the winged eyeliner is genius and helps give the whole piece a vintage-cool feel.

I think in general Elle tends to have more interesting takes on fashion in their editorials (as opposed to Vogue), but maybe that’s just me. They definitely sell to a more youthful crowd, and even the basic shopping layouts in their magazine are visually rich – like a collage you would make at home with some magazine cutouts and glue.

What do you think/what’s your favorite look?
