Beached Mermaid

If Ariel from The Little Mermaid got really into fashion, cut her hair a bit and was then caught in a really strong, shoreward tide, this is what would happen. Honestly, we don’t hate it. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Jumping Through The Ages

As far as editorials go, few things are more fun than a good jump shot. And while Caroline Trentini’s Vogue leap (pictured) has epitomized the jump shot for the past several seasons, she owes her inspiration to photographer Phillipe Hallsman, the man who more or less invented the technique. Hallsman captured everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Audrey Hepburn in mid-air long before Caroline was even a fetus, and for this adorable posing style, we thank him. Hallsman’s airborne work is currently on display at Laurence Miller Gallery in New York, but you can also check out a sampling of it on the internetz right now. Better yet, grab a camera and jump around a little yourself; it’s what Anna Wintour would want. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Ciara Gets Model-y For Vogue Paris

Ciara has been looking pretty unremarkable in photos lately. Don’t get me wrong, the singer/dancer’s body is still on point, but black leggings and eye-catching heels get kind of boring after a while. For the June/July 2010 issue of Vogue Paris, Ciara sheds her around-the-way attire and dons sheer, feathery, and glitzy garments instead. She stays on top of her shoe game, too, with a pair of thigh-high lace-up boots. The editorial was shot by fashion photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. And Riccardo Tisci, Givenchy’s creative director, styled the looks. These sultry photos prove Ciara deserves her modeling contract with Wilhemina. And we can’t wait to see more of this side of her. Check out two more photos after the jump. Keep reading »

Interview Magazine’s “Let’s Get Lost” … In Black Savagery?

Fashion, fashion, fashion. So many strange, racy … racist things have been done in your name that it’s no wonder you’re a disrespected laughingstock to more than half the world. We’ve seen white models appear in blackface in your name. Gisele Bundchen and LeBron James reenact “King Kong” or “Tarzan,” depending on whom you speak to, for Vogue, in your name. And now, Interview magazine has seen fit to publish an editorial, entitled “Let’s Get Lost,” featuring Daria Werbowy against of sea of dark — dark people, fabrics, and atmosphere. Keep reading »

Two Reasons Kobe Bryant Should Stick To Basketball

Sometimes when we try something new, it becomes blatantly clear that we’ll never turn the activity into a profession. I learned this when I took a pole dancing class in 2008. After a few minutes of instruction, I painfully admitted that I didn’t have the coordination or muscle tone to go sliding down a stripper pole using only my butt cheeks to hold me. That might be a little TMI, but my point is that I hope Kobe Bryant doesn’t take his Los Angeles Times Magazine editorial as a sign that he should dabble in modeling. I can’t really put my hand on it, but something is off in these two pics. Maybe it’s the fact that Kobe’s signature dome is covered. Or maybe it’s his hard Blue Steel face on the left and the softer Blue Steel on the right that’s making these photos mediocre. There’s no believable emotion, and any good model will say that’s a necessary element for a publishable photo. But I will say kudos to Kobe for trying something he wasn’t born to do.

Why Is Shrek In A Fashion Editorial?

We are pretty consistent fans of uber-cool fashion mag V and its gentlemanly counterpart, VMan. That said, what in God’s name were they thinking with this Shrek editorial? I guess it’s a little funny? Kind of? But it’s mostly just perplexingly behind the times and a total non sequitur. We get that the ten billionth Shrek movie is coming out in a few weeks, but that hardly seems the sort of thing that V would give a crap about. Did the Shrek folk pay them for the placement? Is this just an ill-executed attempt at fashion shock value? Is it, perhaps, an effort at deeper commentary about the relationship between man and animated beast? The best editorials are more than fashion fluffery; they leave us with questions. These, however, are not the right questions. More totally confusing images from the shoot after the jump.
