Dior Cruise, vintage vibes

Saturated colors of summer vibes, unforgettable memories captured on film, the joyfulness of bright days – this is how we could describe the relaxed candidness of the Dior Cruise 2012 lookbook. There is no theatrical drama, no affected performance, no constrained act of sophistication, just youthful naturalness and feelings of freedom. Rising stars in modeling Monika Jac Jagaciak and Antonio Navas channel succulent summer atmosphere…

Amber Heard: weekend distraction

So typical is this shoot of Ellen von Unwerth’s style that at first I was unsure if I’d seen it before. Apparently not: apparently this exploration of sapphic fetishism is a new editorial from the fall 2011 issue of Vs Magazine. In many ways, it’s a successful formula for von Unwerth so why break it? Titled Amber vs Amber, the titular model is Amber Heard,…

Lily Cole models weird and wonderful lingerie

Like a steadfast paper doll Lily Cole models 37 of the most unique, unusual and utterly intriguing sets of lingerie you’ve ever laid eyes on. One set turns her into a mechanical object covered in cogs. Another plates her in mirrored shards that seem to transform her into a living cyborg. Other are hinged or feathered or peplumed or frilled, made from sailor’s knots of…

The return of Josephine Baker

Adore Me. So implores the title of Ellen von Unwerth’s latest shoot for Tush magazine, and model Rose Cordero makes it hard not to oblige. A sure sign that the ’20s fashion revival we predicted is on the march, Cordero is decked out in finger waves and fringed dresses, the kind of outfits we expect might hit the big screen when The Great Gatsby remake…

Skinny again, Crystal Renn

Updated with more pictures from the photo shoot. Sometime ago, in Fashionising.com’s end-of-year podcast I believe, I mused that I saw the next decade as one defined not by the pure celebrity, but by the model. We’ve moved into a period where we know everything about every celebrity. We know all the great things about the people we’re meant to adore, but we also know…

Ellen von Unwerth and Keira Knightley

Whenever Ellen von Unwerth trains her lens on a subject you can be sure that she’ll come away with a striking result. As a photographer she has the gift of getting precisely what she wants from her subject be that their fun, playful or sexy side, and she always manages to achieve something of a high brow affect. This time, her subject is the gorgeous…

The retelling of Roxelana

The exotic is always such a large part of fashion and not just for the sartorial options it offers up but more so for the way it spurs our imagination. As you’ll often here me say that fashion is a projection of who we want to be; exotic fashion takes that fact further, working in layers of fantasy and taking the projection to a whole…

Vintage inspired beach dalliance by Unwerth

Shooting in her typical playful yet sexualised style for the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Ellen von Unwerth focuses her lens on the starlets from the upcoming period drama Boardwalk Empire. With the recent success of Mad Men and its influence on mainstream fashion heralding a ’60s fashion revival it’s obvious that a strong enough show will easily push a fledgling over the tipping point.…

Guess does vintage chic

When it comes to their ad campaigns, Guess always manage to get vintage sex kitten glamour spot on. For Fall 2010 the inspirations hark clearly back to the ’50s / early ’60s with Grease-like capri pants, tie-up tops, and even some full skirts.
