zippora seven


Zippora by Eric Guillemain

We haven’t seen all that much of New Zealand’s top modelling export Zippora Seven of late, so stumbling across this simple and candid portrait by Eric Guillemain was a welcome find.

Backstage at Stolen Girlfriends Club

You’ve seen the runway coverage of Stolen Girlfriends Club from RAFW (Australian fashion week); but before the models hit the runway, what did we find backstage? Socks in wedges, Tallulah Morton looking like a Goddess (and dwarfing everyone), models including Sarah Stephens being preened and prettied, the boys behind the label kicking back and giving interviews, and Zippora Seven getting playful with the camera.

Flannel’s minimal beauty, Spring 2010

Fringed suede and floaty cream pieces matched with tan leather were minimalist-meets-prairie at Flannel‘s RAFW (Australian fashion week) show. Paul Simon’s Graceland made for oddly fitting runway music as country American inspirations shone through in leather shorts and vests and dresses with tasseled hems. While undoubtedly not for everyone, Flannel was for me an RAFW favourite. The pieces are the type that shouldn’t be over-accessorised,…

Stolen Girlfriends Club rocks for Spring 2010

Stolen Girlfriends Club is like an all-night party: unbridled and full of potential. Any show that can capture the moment’s zeitgeist and inject in into relaxed sporty cuts, intermixed with mini dresses that personify sex, has our vote. And Stolen Girlfriends Club’s debut RAFW (Australian fashion week) show did just that. Every element of the show epitomised the laid-back uber-cool NZ style the label is…

Marnie Skillings Spring 2010

RAFW (Australian fashion week) mightn’t officially kick off until Monday (when we’ll be getting a lucky fashioniser into an invite-only show, see ‘win a ticket to RAFW‘) but dates mean little when you’re showing off clothing that shan’t hit the racks for months to come. So it was that Marnie Skillings pipped most other labels to the post by releasing her Spring / Summer 2010…

Zippora Seven: innocently braided

Were you expecting another dose of Zippora Seven so soon? It’s a small shoot, but a good one; and a nice little step away from the usual grungy Zippora we’re used to seeing. With the clear, rosy skin and sprinkling of freckles Zippora wouldn’t be out of place at a country farmhouse on a green grassy mountain. She even has the milkmaid braid to go…

Today’s dose of Zippora Seven

I like to occasionally hit you with some Zippora Seven, the Kiwi model whose career was born out of controversy and has been going strong ever since. Today’s dose of Zippora comes courtesy of Akila Berjaoui, a photographer whose work I really like, and who I’ve become a regular stalker of.

Zippora Seven beach babe for Yen

Kiwi model Zippora Seven has a sort of grungy appeal that’s kept her in business – though admittedly mostly in publications from Australia and New Zealand. This time it’s for Aussie Yen Magazine‘s 42nd issue, in a beachy shoot titled bay bay, baby.

Zippora Seven in lingerie: Memory a Swingin’ Door

It’s been quite some time since Kiwi model Zippora Seven caused a stir by appearing nude while underage. Bolstered rather than hindered by the publicity, she’s continued to shine brightly in both editorial and on runways, though mostly close to home. This shoot, named after lyrics from David Bowie’s Shining Star, is soft and feminine, featuring a selection of lingerie in a neutral colour palette.
