Man on the edge: bold menswear styling from Hero

Even the most polished city has a dark underbelly if you know where to look. San Francisco’s is exposed in the gritty street corners and manned doorways, the clubs and the neon signs. Those are there in Christian Ferretti’s shoot SF Tease, there alongside the Golden Gate, a landmark rising stark until it gets lost in the grey clouds. The city itself is recognisable but…

How to: Dolce & Gabbana’s Sophia Loren inspired makeup look

Known for her beauty, Sophia Loren remains a style icon. Exuding grace and elegance, it’s no surprise that Dolce & Gabbana chose her as the inspiration for their fall 2013 makeup look. The collection was very opulent. Reminiscent of the Byzantine era, it’s only fitting that it gets a beauty look a queen or empress would wear. The world has always been somehow obsessed with…

Regal, regal, Medieval: royal dressing for fall 2013

Holding your head high in a disposition of poise and grace is – with some outfits – a requirement. For others, it’s an inevitability. The feeling of plush velvet or brocade against your skin, the fitted bodice of a dress pulling your shoulders back, the audible jangle of beading that rings out with each step you take, all influences your mood and enforces a regality…

The slave becomes the master

This shoot is “a story of a horse and her master”, as photographer Mark Drew explains it. Model Daria is the horse; bound up in harnesses and saddles of the actual equine kind (not the usual fetish-come-fashion leather harness accessories). Even her hair, styled by Livio Angileri into braids that encircle her neck, is representative of her state of submissiveness. By the end of Drew’s…

Muddy Waters: when there’s beauty in desolation

Sometimes inspiration can strike from the most unexpected places and create the most astonishing results. Case in point: photographer Andrew Akimov, who allowed for his work to be directly influenced by the desolated feel of the muddy waters, creating an artistic photo shoot by carefully playing upon contrast and imperfections. Akimov searched for the ugly beauty in the Russian landscape, steering away from ideality and…

10 key pieces to pick up during sale time

This time of the year is deeply influenced by the Christmas magic and its fairy-tale like atmosphere, but sometimes the anticipation can feel bittersweet. Gone in a blink of an eye, the Holidays at least leave us with little somethings to hold onto or look forward to. Either we’re talking a fresh start, thrilling new plans or the post-Christmas sales, there are plenty of reasons…

6 perfume ads so provocative they got banned

Advertisement campaigns in the fashion and beauty industry are less about the product and more about the extravagance of the imagery or video. Especially where perfume ads are concerned, there’s no denying that we often see less of the tangible bottle, and more of everything else in that one frame, be it a nude body scattered on satin sheets or random imagery unlinked to the…

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…

Subtle mind-bending inception

Christopher Nolan’s film of the same name was mind-bending on a kaleidoscopic level. Dreams within dreams within twisted realities sending viewers into a rabbit hole even Alice would be careful not to fall down. In Mark Drew’s Inception, a shoot inspired by those twists and turns, the theme is much more subtle. Each image is marked by a little hint of futuristic intensity; an unusual…
