Beauty editors everywhere (including us) are swooning.
Charlize Theron is W Magazine‘s February cover girl, and the cover is just as boring as the accompanying interview.
This was the week Karlie Kloss spoke about her Vogue Italia photos and Lindsay Lohan‘s Playboy spread leaked. This was also the week we got a double dose of Chloë Sevigny, attended some fancy parties, and saw the unveiling of the Pirelli calendar.
The fact that it’s Friday notwithstanding, why would anyone make a 20-minute long behind the scenes video? But for those of you looking to see some artfully dampened nudity (there’s an assistant tasked with wetting the models via spray bottles) or hear Milla Jovovich explain the relationship between the strength and quality of Pirelli tires and the models featured in the calendar, this video is for you!
Fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti claims he didn’t want his 2012 Pirelli calendar to be overtly sexy, but we think the photos he took for it are probably going to fit that description to a tee.
The 2012 Pirelli calendar won’t be unveiled until December, but images of the racy annal have already started leaking online. Shot by Mario Sorrenti in Corsica earlier this summer, the photos leaked so consist of nude, nearly nude, and basically nude images of Lara Stone, Kate Moss, Milla Jovovich, Saskia de Brauw, Isabeli Fontana, and actress Rinko Kikuchi (who we, personally, think was an inspired choice.)
We feel obligated to lead this post with a warning that should have come with this video: No one will ever love your wedding as much as they loved Kate Moss‘ wedding. Why? Because she’s Kate Moss. And she’s beautiful. And she “fills up the page.” And she has an uncanny ability to put clothing on and “make them come alive”. Basically, she’s a wizard.
Okay, maybe old school isn’t quite the right turn of phrase, but Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks on a magazine cover reminds us of the ’90s in the BEST WAY. Anyway! They’re starring in a new movie together, and consequently also gracing the cover of W.
We applaud edgy. We love irreverent. But sometimes fashion editorials go a bit too far. They make us cringe, squirm and generally feel really, really uncomfortable. Case in point: Mario Sorrenti‘s latest spread for V Magazine. Titled “City of God” and starring model Natasha Poly, the shocking images apparently pay tribute to Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky known for his “violently surreal” imagery. Yeah, that’s one way to put it.
We know that we write about Kate Moss a lot, but we simply don’t have a choice. She astounds us daily with her chicness. The model may be pushing forty years old, but we don’t care. [Ed note: She's only 36!] And apparently neither does anyone else. Thankfully, magazine editors still believe in her elegance and grace. We would want to see no one else on Vogue Paris’ June/July 2010 cover.
Vogue Italia took pale to the next level with editor Jacob K’s spread for the April issue. Featuring Sasha Pivovarova and Guinevere van Seenus as two “ghostly maidens” doused in white powder and draped in designs from Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Yohji Yamamoto, “A White Story” takes the frill and frippery of spring to an artfully icy place. But the best part of this issue might be the compare and contrast between “A White Story” and Pivovarova’s second and far smokier spread shot by Mario Sorrenti.
Kate Moss recently stripped down for a Vogue Hommes beach shoot with photographer Mario Sorrenti. The spread, which was styled (if you can call it that) by Emanuelle Alt, comes 17 years after Sorrenti first photographed Moss for the career-launching and now-iconic ads for Calvin Klein’s Obsession.
Suffice it to say, the images are gorgeous.
