The edge of beauty: Conchi by Anna Ciupryk

Nothing would have worked better in highlighting Conchi Monge’s classic features than the raw styling, the messy hair-do and the edgy black and white concept proposed by photographer Anna Ciupryk. Possessor of a poignant glare intensified by the kohl smudged smokey eyes and exuding sex-appeal through every single inch of her body, Conchi is most definitely not your regular dark haired beauty. Between enticing us…

Ways to wear red: street style gallery

If there’s one thing to be said about spring 2013 fashion, it’s that it’s not afraid to be bold. And while graphic black and white patterns have taken over in one corner of the fashion world, bright colour is holding its own in another. Bright red remains a colour to go for if you want to stand out in spring, and these street style looks…

Scarlett Johansson covers Marie Claire US

Scarlett Johansson is the face of the Marie Claire US May 2013 edition, featuring on not one but two different covers for the issue. The styling of the covers plays perfectly to Johnasson’s bombshell looks and persona: on one she wears a red lace dress paired with red lipstick, on the other a black and red floral dress that hugs the figure. Both dresses are…

The beautiful and the damned

As for the story taking place in Fulvio Maiani’s shoot for Bambi issue 13, your guess is as good as mine. What does seem clear is that the couple at the center of this affair are ultra-glamorous, famous perhaps, and embroiled in the kind of tumultuous relationship that rockets them from the very depths to the highest of highs – and back again – on…

Lagerfeld, Ford, Slimane & Dolce: Renaissance men or tyrants?

There’s a snowballing trend in recent fashion seasons, one that might prove to be a hurdle for photographers. Photographers are getting used to these hurdles: in the middle of a global financial crisis, cutting the photographer from a business’ yearly expenses may appear a fail safe solution. And with programs such as Instagram, everyone’s a photographer. Fashion designers are adding yet another string to their…

Pygmaliona: breathing life into a myth

Sometimes it’s hard to decide which is more beautiful: an artwork, or a living thing. A painting or sculpture may be missing the warmth of the lifeblood that courses through a human’s veins, may be missing the beating heart and the humour and the ability to feel empathy; but an artwork is also missing a human’s flaws. Perhaps that’s what made Pygmalion so in love…

10 of the best magazine editorials of 2012

I’ll disclaim from the outset that the title of this post is inaccurate: “best”, when it comes to any form of art, is subjective. There’s no right or wrong on what can be called the best when it comes to fashion shoots, but there’s only so much you can explain in a title so I’ll say it here instead. There are certain editorials that stand…
