Who are Diesel’s five iconic ‘it’ girls?

There are models. There are actresses. And then there are boundary-blurrers, the ones whose descriptors are punctuated by /shashes/ because a single role can’t define them. And that’s the case more and more as the concept of model/actress/it girl/style icon becomes the desired (and longer lasting) thing to be. Diesel’s ‘Fit Your Attitude’ campaign celebrates five of those ‘it’ girls who defy categorisation.

Isabella ballerina: a model’s dual personas

Unless she’s Coco Rocha doing an Irish jig down the Jean Paul Gaultier runway, a model’s talents beyond being physically beautiful can often go unrecognised. But when Maayan Ziv photographed fresh-faced beauty Isabella, signed to Ford models, he wanted to capture her dual talents as both a model and a professional ballerina. The result is a hybrid of classical costume and contemporary fashion. Stylist Valeria…

5 weekend reads: is there life after modelling?

Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha and Angela Lindvall may all be of varying ages (28, 23 and 33 respectively) – but they have a big question mark in common: what happens once the modelling world no longer wants them? Plus, Anthony Vaccarello talks about his daring slit dresses, Wes Anderson discusses Moonrise Kingdom, and one author ponders the life of a Bachelorette. After the break: 5…

The Coco controversy

Update: you can now view Coco Rocha’s full shoot from Elle Brazil at the gallery. When you first glance Coco Rocha’s cover for the May 2012 edition of Elle Brazil it’s likely that your reaction is going to be akin to my own: wow. It’s quite the stunning cover. Over Photoshopped in parts to be sure, but all the more dramatic for it. And while…

Selling what can’t be bought: Steven Meisel

Doesn’t matter what you think of them – tacky, attractive, ineffective or just unnecessary – fashion and beauty advertisements are special. Especially when big names get together on the same creative platform. Think Mario Testino and Kate Moss – that kind of special. These are the kind that’ll look flashy on beautifully scented pages of a glossy magazine, but when they are bookmarked and filed…

The dark side of Coco

Often so in this industry, supermodels become victim of a fashion genre. The journey that starts with a flexible portfolio somehow plants itself in a comfort zone. They shamelessly start specialising in a genre of photo shoots and can never budge out of it. It’s all by chance, never forced, but it happens. Coco Rocha was starting to settle down in the aforementioned category, until…

Coco Rocha: lady in red

When I penned a commentary about the leather harness morphing from fetish to sophisticated luxury, this is exactly the styling I was referring to: it may still be pushing the boundaries, but it’s worn in an entirely different way. There are no bold studs or spikes or chains. Instead this minimal black leather Lanvin harness is elegantly worn over a red gabardine suit by Hermes.
