PLEASANTLY OVERCAST: PEJIC + GENEST ARE A WHOLE LOT OF MODEL

Published on 08.23.11

Ever since this video (Below) of the Auslander S/S ’12 shoot popped up on Made In Brazil in June, we’ve all been waiting to see the subsequent campaign. Genderless blonde beauty Andrej Pejic and human illustration Rick Genest are two of the buzziest outliers in the business, and casting them together was a brilliant idea […]

MINOR THREAT: WILL THE HAILEY CLAUSON LAWSUIT AFFECT USAGE OF UNDERAGE MODELS IN FASHION PHOTOGRAPHS?

Published on 08.21.11

We wager that sweaty palms and shifty gazes are a dime a dozen in the fashion industry this week, as news has broken that the parents of 15-year-old model Hailey Clauson are suing Urban Outfitters and photographer Jason Lee Parry for using the model’s likeness on a t-shirt, ‘posed in a blatantly salacious manner.’ (See […]

COVER CLASH | ELLE FANNING VS. NAYASHA MATONHODZE

Published on 07.27.11

In which we pit two of the covers for Love #6 against each other, one with Elle Fanning (Below Left) and one with Nayasha Matonhodze (Below Right). Do you agree without our outcome below? It’s okay. You don’t have to. We’re always right. LOVE #6: ELLE FANNING VS. NAYASHA MATONHODZE WHOSE ISSUE HAS THE BEST… […]

THE UNSOLICITED CASTING DIRECTOR: PRADA A/W ’11 EDITION

Published on 06.29.11

Prada’s A/W ’11 girls are a bit plastic, no? The half-human, half-porcelain look, a longtime Prada signature, lacks character here. The clothes do achieve success in both the palette and paillette departments, but the bathing caps look like wigs by Supercuts. I would love to see Prada deviate from the “blank slate” approach to their […]

Daria Werbowy Goes Sailing

Published on 05.23.11

I have nothing but pure admiration for this supermodel. Daria Werbowy hails from the greater Toronto area, and has gone on to be one of the largest names in modeling – being that she’s only 27, there’s more than enough time to go when it comes to her success. What’s most astounding is how she’s […]

Gisele x H&M

Published on 05.05.11

Stunning, as per usual. Gisele Bundchen for H&M’s Spring/Summer 2011. While I haven’t much been a H&M enthusiast in the last bit, I do have to say that these pieces are proving rather enticing. Keyhole floral drop crotch jump suit. That’s already a mouthful. And ruched nude belted halter jump suit…is just as wordy and […]

miu miu Women’s Tales

Published on 01.31.11

Miu Miu presents “The Miu Miu Womens’ Tales”, a collective of short films directed by international female filmmakers (tongue twister). Nothing has me more eager than the empowered movement of the female population to create something beautiful, astonishing, and artistic. Blame it on the girl power music that I’ve been looping lately. The first film […]

Elle Fanning

Published on 12.26.10

Though older sister Dakota has earned herself some attention for being recently signed to IMG as a special request model, Elle Fanning hasn’t been doing so shabby herself. At only 12 years old she’s been in a Lula spread (one of my greatly favoured magazines that is still considerably underrated). What do you think of […]
