A tribute to Alexander McQueen‘s artistic output presented in Vogue US is an awe-inspiring retrospective of the stellar career, and a thorough preview of the upcoming Savage Beauty exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute on May 4th. Alexander the Great is a beautiful story of the fashion pioneer and Enfant Terrible in one. Following the meaning of this figurative title, Alexander undeniably…
If you have’t been daring enough yet to ‘just change it‘, then perhaps Rachel Zimmermann for A Brand is the inspiration you need to spur you on. This is simultaneously a subtle change, and yet one that makes the world of difference: a peroxide blonde bob on Raquel is both a glamorous turn and a breath of fresh air.

Far from sullen and dreary, the Louis Vuitton Spring / Summer 2011 ad campaign displays rich and intense Autumn / Winter 2011 colours of boysenberry, seaport blue and fuchsia.

It’s been a while since we’ve remarked about nudity in fashion; in part because the trend has subsided a little, in part because we’ve gotten so used to it. Being a very NSFW shoot, it’s hard not to mention the rather obvious lack of modesty in these pictures of Raquel Zimmermann – so don’t say I didn’t warn you. There’s also some (not always the…

I had to do a double take when I first laid eyes on Raquel Zimmermann in the fall 2010 campaign for Jil Sander + Uniqlo. Raquel makes for an especially astounding androgynous subject for the lens of David Sims appearing in the preview wearing a simple white buttoned up shirt and a blazer.

Call It Love is the title of this pictorial. And there’s much to love indeed: photography by Ellen von Unwerth, styling by Grace Coddington, and the starring triad of Raquel Zimmermann, Caroline Trentini and actor Nicholas Hoult. But look closely at the photos and you’ll wonder exactly who the subjects of this strange love triangle are; the models or their trusty phones and ipods. Some…

This is another one of those shoots that has us craving some sun. Raquel Zimmermann looks ridiculously good wearing swimwear pieces under day-wear to create beautifully Summery yet sophisticated outfits. Glee’s Matthew Morrison gets his shirt off alongside Raquel for the pictorial, which appears in the June 2010 issue of Vogue US.

I’ll forgive you if you think this is a post about the 2010 Pirelli calendar. It does, after all, consist of pictures of the likes of Miranda Kerr and Terry Richardson, all set amongst beach scenes. The images sport a raw quality, as if shot by Richardson’s lens. And yet amongst those photographed you’ll also find Bar Refaeli and Raquel Zimmermann, neither of whom graced…
How to reinvent head-to-toe black (in this case an entire shoot full of it) without making us lose interest? Raquel Zimmermann does it with a hint of futurism that’s been rolled into 70s glam, kneaded together, and baked til hot. It all comes down, as always, to the detail – as stylist Luis Fiod knows. It’s the blunt, fringed hair, the sheer daring of a…
Vogue Nippon‘s May 2010 shoot Mistress In Monochrome has something of a late 70s/early 80s feel to it. Inez & Vinoodh must have gotten the industrial-strength fans out of storage for this one, sending Raquel Zimmerman‘s hair into wind-blown overdrive. Tanned, shimmering, and sometimes topless, Zimmerman wears female dandy outfits consisting of neck-bows, suiting, and man-style flat shoes.
