Saskia de Brauw Page 1
You all know Andrej Pejic, the man who’s carved out a very successful career modeling women’s clothing. So why not have a woman model as a man? Hedi Slimane poses that very question with his men’s spring 2013 campaign, starring female model Saskia de Brauw.
We’re pretty much the presidents of the Models Instead Of Celebrities On Magazine Covers Club (MIOOMCC), so we’re all about the Carine Roitfeld-styled covers for the winter issue of V Magazine.
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’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.
Bit by bit, pieces of Carine Roitfeld‘s final issue for Vogue Paris have been trickling in. Just under a month ago, Roitfeld revealed her cover image, featuring 29-year-old model Saskia de Brauw and hinted that the blurry, low-fi image (and accordingly, the accompanying spread) was inspired by a film. Now the entire grainy, blush-toned spread starring de Brauw and 15-year-old model Daphne Groeneveld is here, but we’re no closer to figuring out Ms. Roitfeld’s vision.
We first came across Saskia de Brauw on the cover of Carine Roitfeld‘s last issue for Vogue Paris. “Now I found a new girl called Saskia. She has short hair, no one knows her,” she said of the 29-year-old model. Not to doubt Roitfeld’s talent-scouting abilities, but given that de Brauw covers the March issues of both Vogue Paris and Vogue Italia, can the former editrix really take all that credit?
