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…

Kurkova mistreats Crystal Renn

Perfectly executed is the contrast between the two stars of this shoot by Steven Klein: Crystal Renn, at times looking wild-eyed like a woman possessed, has dishevelled clothes and messy wet hair. Karolina Kurkova, the matron of this mental institution, has pristinely set blonde hair, buttoned-up collars and skirts in perfect uncrumpled lines. It’s not a new idea for portraying a strict style of clothing,…

Calendar girls – for each and every day of the year

We’re into February and well beyond thinking about our 2012 calendar situations.

Shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Carine Roitfeld, this one gets 12 of the biggest models and Victoria’s Secret angels into its…

Wearable whimsy: Karolina Kurkova

While I sometimes feel the word whimsy is overused in the fashion sense, this editorial of Karolina Kurkova seems to warrant it. It’s in the unique yet wearable combinations of colours, in the strange layerings like multiple hats and scarves, and in pretty much anything that involves spangled-and-snakeskin Prada. Michele Beaurenaut’s edits are also the kind that offer up a platter of practical styling ideas.…

Beauty from six faces

Vogue Paris may feel like it’s struggling a little to find its place now that Carine Roitfeld has moved on; with the internet being awash with sentiments that it’s simply failing to amaze or move forwards. For Emmanuelle Alt, it’s a tough balance between keeping her own style and meeting expectations. Thankfully for Alt, it’s hard to go too wrong for a beauty shoot when…

DIY angel: Miranda Kerr for Rag & Bone

The supermodels of the world, in their natural habitats, photographed in concepts constructed not by the Testinos or the Richardsons, but by themselves. That, you may recall, was the concept behind Rag & Bone’s DIY project. Having already yielded results both intimate and candid from the likes of Abbey Lee Kershaw, Karolina Kurkova, and Carolyn Murphy, the latest installment from the campaign concept gives the…

Karolina Kurkova in Chanel black lace

When it comes to Chanel, the brand’s early 20th Century roots are never too far from mind. But while it’s thus not uncommon for a twenties inspiration to shine through, we can’t help but add Karolina Kurkova’s gently flapper-esque outfit to the growing list of signs a jazz-age revival is on the way. And, as I’ve mentioned recently several times, that revival is likely to…

Karolina Kurkova: the hair detail

Seemingly with less on her plate then when we encountered her at Dior’s Paris fashion week, Korlina Kurkova was more than happy to offer the photographers assembled outside the Viktor & Rolf showing a pose or two. And while I’m sure there were plenty of great snaps to be had, the devil was in the detail: the plait that remained in her hair even once…
