Women may dominate most areas of the fashion industry — look around any fashion magazine, PR agency, or design studio and that much becomes clear — but the big names in photography are still very much male. Mario (x2), Terry, Peter, Patrick, Steven (x2) …the list goes on. On International Women’s Day, we want to celebrate the ladies behind the lens who create some of the most stunning, memorable, and personal images in the field today. From power players like Annie Leibovitz to more under-the-radar names like Collier Schorr and Lina Scheynius, here are some of our favorite females in the biz.
After Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast this past October, Vogue teamed up with the CFDA to raise $1.7 million for relief efforts through their Fashion for Sandy Relief auction, which offered lots like tea with Grace Coddington and an internship stint with DKNY PR Girl Aliza Licht. This month, the magazine is honoring New York’s heroic emergency response teams who got the city back on its feet after the storm, and are still working in the harder hit areas to this day, with a powerful and beautifully-shot editorial in the February issue.
Fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz is reportedly moving uptown, and she’s just put her incredible West Village home on the market for a cool $33 million.
It would have been impossible to walk away from last night’s Glamour Women Of The Year Awards feeling anything less than inspired. While Selena Gomez may be the face of this year’s honorees, scoring the December cover of the glossy, the list of incredible women who received awards last night included a Oscar-winning Pakistani documentarian, a Supreme Court Justice, Team USA‘s gold medal Olympians, and a woman fighting to prevent childhood sexual abuse. Needless to say, there was no shortage of powerful moments throughout the ceremony, so here are just a few of our favorites.
And so Anna Wintour continues to cast her net over the sports world — one hunky athlete at a time. The latest Vogue paramour is Tim Tebow, who is just kicking off his first season as the new quarterback for the New York Jets.
Looks like Ryan Lochte isn’t the only Team USA swimmer dipping his toes into the fashion industry. Louis Vuitton has reportedly tapped Michael Phelps as their latest campaign star.
Italian model Isabella Rossellini is fronting Bulgari‘s fall ads, and she looks awesome.
Normally when fashion magazines are done with a shoot, they pack up all the accessories and clothes send them back to whichever designer showroom they borrowed them from. But Lady Gaga is auctioning off the baubles she wore in her recent Vanity Fair spread for two very good causes.
Tony Bennett painted Lady Gaga in the nude for Vanity Fair, and there’s a really delightful video about it.
Lately we’d been getting little inklings that Lady Gaga might be losing the special flair she had for making a big splash. And those inklings were promptly laid to rest this morning when we saw a photo of Gaga getting naked for singer Tony Bennett — so that, you know, he could paint her. For Vanity Fair.
We have confirmation that Rihanna‘s rumored Vogue cover exists, and that it will hit newsstands in April. As always,
blame thank Twitter!
It takes a lot to convince adults to believe in fairy tales, but Annie Leibovitz makes a pretty good case with her new Disney Dreams portraits.
As you know, Lady Gaga snagged the cover of Vogue‘s March issue. Though the accompanying profile of the icon is rather fascinating, we think the behind-the-scenes video of the Annie Leibovitz-lensed, Grace Coddington-directed photo shoot is just as revealing.
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again — we really don’t like to trade in rumors here at Styleite, but sometimes you come across on that’s just too good to pass up. And today, that rumor is that Rihanna shot a Vogue cover with Annie Leibovitz — and it’s coming straight from the horse’s mouth.
Along with holding a #6 spot on Forbes 100 most powerful celebrities list, Britney Spears’ clothing line for Candie’s launched today — two days early!
Annie Leibovitz’s photographs may be consistently brilliant, but news of unpaid loans and crazy spending habits proved her ability to pay bills was anything but. Now the plot has thickened. Yesterday, financial advisor Kenneth Starr was arrested on fraud charges in New York. Apparently it was Starr who introduced Annie to Art Capital and was in charge of managing many of her loans.
