Vogue Nippon Page 1
Another day, another Karlie Kloss shoot for yet another international edition of Vogue. This time, the burgeoning supermodel sat in front of photographer Hedi Slimane‘s camera for Vogue Nippon‘s February issue, which means the photos you’re about to see are going to be ultra moody and entirely black and white.
Crystal Renn has starred in her fair share of quirky magazine editorials, but this one for Vogue Nippon sort of hits the whole concept of magazine editorials squarely in the nose. That’s because in it, in each shot, Renn wears exactly one brand, denoted by a supersized version of that brand’s logo made into a hat on top of her head.
We love when models front magazines, and we especially love when our favorite models get some serious face time. Fall seems to be the season we can’t escape Lara Stone, and that’s fine by us.
We are huge fans of both Anna Dello Russo and Crystal Renn. As such, an editorial styled by ADR and starring Renn should be something we’re really into. We’re not.
Not only does Florence Welch have the honor of being the first non-model to cover Vogue Nippon in over five years, but her cover image was shot by professional artiste Karl Lagerfeld, who styled the typically Gucci-clad singer in red patterned smoking jacket and a high-collared, starched white button-down. In other words, he dressed her up as his mini me.
We’re obsessed with hats. From fascinating fascinators to swanky scarves tied under the chin we have long loved the colorful constructions of cloth and feathers that women put on top of their heads. So when we saw Crystal Renn wearing a variety of hats in this spread from the June edition of Vogue Nippon, we knew we had to share it with you.
We write about magazine covers a lot. We speculate, we question, we mock, we praise. And every month we have a new batch of glossies to analyze! We’re not the only ones with a cover fetish, though. An industrious poster over at Fashin has put together an artful look at the past year in mags.
Wherever there’s a fashion show, there’s always someone dying to crash it. The New York Post reports that a trio of Japanese women tried — and briefly succeeded — to get into Tom Ford‘s ultra secret women’s wear presentation on Sunday.
Today, Vogue Nippon’s Anna Dello Russo confirmed to WWD that she’s planning to debut her own fragrance. While Teen Vogue and Elle editors like Lisa Love and Roberta Myers have already made themselves near-household names by opening their office doors to some rolling cameras, we think they could be a little more proactive. To save them from the brainstorming process, we thought of a few editorial partnerships that are guaranteed to fly off the store shelves.
The only thing better than one gorgeous and perfectly styled model is, well, two gorgeous and perfectly styled models. Can you think of a better way to see double? That’s why we love this twin-like spread in next month’s Vogue Nippon, shot by Glen Luchford , styled by Anastasia Barbieri, and featuring models Sigrid Agren and Patricia van der Vliet.
