Understanding Kate Upton

Kate Upton in front of the lens, Terry Richardson behind it. You can already imagine what the resulting photo shoot is like. Just scrub nudity you imagined in the images – Kate Upton may be a pin up, but I can’t think of a single photo shoot of hers that includes explicit nudity. She’s doesn’t do anything more. Maybe yet ought to be added to…

A grainy Natasha Poly

I love a grainy, black and white image. There’s something about the low quality that adds a sense of reality for me. Perhaps because you can see less you’re forced to feel more. What’s actually happening in the photo is never quite revealed and thus never dictated, therefore you’re left to imagine it for yourself. And imagine what happened behind the scenes on Natasha Poly’s…

Melancholy Natasha Poly

While the introductory text is lost on me (nonexistant is my Japanese), thus leaving me with no official insight, I can’t help but wonder if this shoot owes a minor debt to The Artist. It’s obvious 1970s glam styling twists aside, it sets out to convey a particular mood (melancholy) and does so not just with moody lighting or pensive facial expressions but with theatrical…

The New Fifties is also sexier

Bombshell silhouettes, headscarves, retro-print bodysuits and Prada’s hotrod heels. If there’s one thing to be learned from Vogue China’s March 2012 shoot starring Natasha Poly and Isabeli Fontana, it’s that “The New Fifties” looks a lot like the old – only sexier.

Pretty Poly

It’s a cool evening just before New York fashion week breaks into all its hectic glory. Fresh faced and unruffled by the though of the coming weeks of runway after runway, veteran queen of the catwalk Natasha Poly smiles for our cameras outside a book launch she’s just attended with fellow model Ginta Lapina. The book, in case you were wondering, was Bob Recine’s Alchemy…

Retro dreams: Prada’s full campaign

Hot rods, hot rod heels, headscarves; prints, pleats, pinned hair in waves. How many hot things of the season can you fit into one campaign? Prada manages all that and more in their ’50s themed campaign for spring 2012, photographed by Steven Meisel.

Vogue Italia’s shopping channel parody: weekend watch

The latest Gucci for sale on your late night shopping channel? Complete with cheesy lens blurs and elevator music? Not something you’ll see every day. But thanks to Vogue Italia and another creative, tongue-in-cheek concept shot by Steven Meisel, we get to step into a world where the likes of Karlie Kloss, Natasha Poly and Caroline Trentini are the stars of the QVC shopping channel…

Cinematic Jil Sander

Cinematic, in a word. Jil Sander’s spring 2012 campaign puts dark edges on a clean, bright collection; Hitchcock-like in its cracked drama. Each of Natasha Poly, Clément Chabernaud, Aiden Andrews and Daria Strokous peers out from a circle of broken glass and descends a dark staircase. The vintage-inspired shapes and faux bobbed hair of the collection’s styling only strengthen the air of mystery in Willy…

Postcards from Proenza Schouler

It’s the little things. You notice them and you notice this is a well thought-out campaign. It travels the path set by Proenza Schouler in their spring 2012 show, riffing on the 1950s with the tropical prints and retro colours, topping things off with a toned-down version of the messy rockabilly hairstyle that traversed the runway. Then there’s the shadowy edges and the cropped corners…
