It’s too early to repeat bunny ears as a wearable fashion accessory trend (even though 2009 seems like forever-ago), but good news to manufacturers, boyfriends, and magazines everywhere: there’s still one time of year when we love to don a pair. Tatler bring the Easter inspiration with their custom-made Philip Treacy straw ears, Natalia Vodianova, and some lace lingerie (Etam, naturally). We can turn a…
When we saw LOVE’s latest Kate Moss cover, we wondered about the issue’s title – This Is Hardcore – and what it would yield inside the magazine’s pages. Is Kate Moss locking lips with transgender model Lea T LOVE’s idea of Hardcore? Apparently, but we knew that from the cover. So what’s new inside? There’s a fairly regular dose of nudity, some nice biker styling,…

Fashion’s predominant vibe during much of the past decade may have been military infused, but between military and the re-interpretation of tribal fashion, seldom did we see a take both equally as eye-grabbing and as impractical as Natalia Vodianova’s wearing of medieval armour. And yet there, as 2010 draws to a close, it is.

The general advice when shooting a look book is to avoid black; the detail of black pieces is often lost if not photographed correctly. Even more precarious is shooting black-on-black, yet Indonesia’s luki not only dared – he won. A black background, a model (Vien Febrina) with raven-black hair, and a collection comprised entirely of black. Yet luki’s work for label Sapto Djojokartiko is detailed…

Mixing a sensual cocktail of sheer maxi dress and delicate lace works out superbly for Natalia Vodianova. The barely-there bit of lace over her eyes is the ideal way to tick the masquerade theme box without going over the top on an ornate mask.
It’s time to pick our favourite cover for April, and if you want to find out what it is all you have to do is click here; otherwise first, let’s discuss what we saw this month. It seems that we’ve had some duplication during April with two covers going to Diane Kruger who landed on both Marie Claire UK and, looking very dramatic, on the…
Natalia Vodianova can be wildly sexy, no doubt about it. But there are times when she has this child-like look that could melt anyone quicker than a microwave melts butter. She’s got that look on full force for this shoot in Vogue China, with ruffly dresses and soft waved hair, and darling pairs of pastel thigh high socks and stockings.

With movement and blurring creating a ghost effect, Patrick Demarchelier turned Natalia Vodianova into a living dream for May 2010’s Vogue China. The shoot’s title is Dream Girl, and while Natalia looks strangely un-Natalia-like in some of the shots, it’s a beautiful editorial for the gauzy sheer layers and the colour palette of innocent white and vintage lavender.

Natalia Vodianova, frustratingly, has this constant look like she just rolled out of bed looking gorgeous. With pretty much all-black outfits this shoot isn’t the most stand-out (though Lanvin‘s draping pieces are beautiful); it’s more Natalia’s bedhair-ish bob and doe eyed looks that make it a more than pleasant shoot to flip through.
