Is Kate Moss putting on the bunny ears for Playboy? Survey says: …
“Kate Cleans Up” reads the boldfaced coverline on Kate Moss‘ just-released cover for LOVE‘s Spring/Summer 2013 issue short by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. And indeed! The model is lying down in a bathtub, slightly sudsy and half-immersed in the bright blue water. But what’s that on her t-shirt?
You know what’s just as gorgeous as Adele‘s Vogue cover? The rest of the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-lensed photos.
Not only is Versace entering the fancy kids’ clothing arena with Young Versace, its ad campaign stars some serious supermodel spawn.
Wanna come see the softer side of Rihanna? Because the singer’s new campaign for Armani is more vulnerable, pretty girl in her underwear than dominatrix in the back seat of a car.
Because magazine schedules make no sense, Vanity Fair‘s October issue drops September 1. And because Vanity Fair is pretty predictable, Angelina Jolie is the cover girl.
The September cover of Interview has leaked, and Anne Hathaway is fronting the glossy with lace draped across her face. It’s very, very pretty…but doesn’t it look a tad familiar?
We’ve taken issue with fashion ads and editorials that glorify violence but this Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-lensed editorial for LOVE magazine’s seriously stacked “supernatural” issue takes morbid themes to a whole new level. The photos are beautiful, but in a haunting, terrifying, and seriously creepy way.
We’ve been crushing hard on the newest set of LOVE covers, and we know what the remaining three will look like!
Elle Fanning remains the coolest tween we know (er, wish we knew), and her latest cover only furthers our case.
Tom Ford knows how to keep his designs on lockdown. No, really. He makes his fashion show guests sign non-disclosure agreements! Last month we finally got a peek at his fall lookbook, and now the Mert & Marcus-shot fall ad campaign is here.
The new issue of V magazine is here and its not your run-of-the-mill glossy. Penelope Cruz covers the magazine’s “Transformation” issue in a techni-colored photo, while Paris Hilton reveals her new life (and some other stuff) in unrecognizable shirtless shots.
When we learned Naomi Campbell was set to appear in Givenchy’s fall campaign, we were curious. When we heard last week that she’d be roaring in the ads and looking like a “dark ’50s pinup girl”, we just got downright excited. So here it is, the first look at Givenchy’s fall campaign, but really, who’s looking at the clothes?
Kate Moss‘ full spread for Vogue Paris‘ May issue is here in all its technicolor glory. At first the images seemed strangely varied, veering from softly romantic black and whites to primary colored punk-inspired get ups and we wondered where Emmanuelle Alt was going with it. And then we realized that while the photographs certainly showcase the (amazing!) clothing, the spread, more than anything else, showcases Moss.
The trend (because it is a trend, unfortunately) of putting Asian models in your advertising and your couture shows and your magazine spreads is a welcome change from the whitewashed fashion photography and casting of yesteryear. But is it enough simply to evoke whatever feeling you think the East evokes in order to claim diversity? Apparently it is. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott created this spread for Interview Magazine called China Girls. And there’s only one Chinese girl in it.
Because the world needed to be reminded that beautiful things happen outside of New York Fashion Week, Dolce and Gabbana cast Naomi Campbell for the new installment of its Animalier eyewear campaign. The pictures were taken by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and they’re stunning. And we mean stunning.
Lea T isn’t the only one who got a solo cover out of her LOVE shoot. In addition to the gender-bending kiss cover, Lea’s cover and Bieber’s cover, there is also a Kate Moss cover for LOVE‘s androgyny issue.
On the one hand, Julianne Moore is a beautiful woman who would look good in anything. Well, almost anything. On the other, this photo of her for Talbots is pretty (everything shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott is pretty), but the dress she’s wearing in it has some members of the Styleite staff feeling less than inspired to run to the nearest Talbots store and start laying a smack down on the recession. It is cool that the campaign uses Moore’s celebrity in a really subtle way, and she’s not half as Photoshopped here as she was in those Bulgari ads. We don’t know what to think. Is the ad pretty, or just pretty boring?
