Jennifer Lawrence is a little busy these days, what with shooting the next installment of the Hunger Games trilogy and all. Plus, she hardly needs to keep up the publicity parade now that she’s already taken home a certain little gold statue. This means that new photo shoots have been few and far between since February, and magazines that want her for their cover have resorted to buying up outtakes of already-published shoots. Case in point: this month’s Tatler Russia cover.
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.
If you’re still looking for a last-minute Halloween costume, well, look no further than Coco Rocha‘s slighty-scary-mostly-trippy video for Vs. Magazine.
Who knew this A-list actress was such a whiz on the other side of the camera?
Let’s talk about what we like, what we don’t like and what we LOVE about the new and improved Glamour.
Crystal Renn is one of our favorite models in the world. Of all the things she is — gorgeous, intelligent, sweet — talented is perhaps the most notable. The girl knows how to strike a pose and walk a runway better than practically anyone. Exhibit A: her almost-nude, definitely NSFW covers for the summer issue of Tush.
The prizes for winning America’s Next Top Model just keep getting better and better. The most recent winner Ann Ward, got a spread in Italian Vogue, along with all of the other fabulous prizes that Tyra Banks detailed with agonizing specificity at the end of every episode.
Images of Taylor Momsen’s ad campaign for John Galliano‘s Parlez-moi d’Amour fragrance have been trickling through the blogosphere over the last few days, but the Ellen von Unwerth directed pièce de résistance is finally here! If you’ve ever wondered how to sell expensive perfume to a really niche audience of Gossip Girl-obsessed, Courtney Love-hating, rock-loving, tortured pre-teens, well, now you know.
We all know that despite the importance fashion puts on appearance, it’s what’s inside is what matters. And no film exemplifies this more than Shrek. For Issue 18 of VMAN, photographer Ellen von Unwerth shot the Ogre and his fellow castmates, along with models Agnete Hegelund, Emma Dumont, Paolo Anchisi, and Francisco Lachowski, in honor of the 4th and final chapter of the Shrek movies.
