Renowned photographer Sandro Miller has worked together with legendary Hollywood A-Lister John Malkovich many times, but when Miller wanted to celebrate the photography greats that had inspired and guided him, he had to do something special. So he, with Malkovich as his dashing unisex model, recreated some of those influential photographers’ most important portraits in a photo series called “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters.”
The series puts both Miller’s exceptional photography and Malkovich’s masterful acting talents front and center. Miller gets each amazing portrait’s lighting, mood and composition down perfectly, while Malkovich replicates the subject’s emotions and expressions so perfectly that the photos become nearly indistinguishable, regardless of the age or gender of the original subject. And it was all done without Photoshop!

The book “Drawn from Paradise”, which includes the sketches from Bird Paradise, catches our attention and inspires us greatly for this collection. We researched about different behaviors of birds and transformed them into prints. For this show we want Vatanika to have a clear image of the ready-to-wear clothing and make it different from another couture line “Vatanika Atelier” that produces gowns and wedding dresses. The show attendees will see stronger identity of the brand and our emphasis on presenting women’s natural curves.

x-Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld has moved from magazines into advertising it would seem after working with Mercedes Benz on a new concept commercial for their S-Class model that is tres chic and oh so fashion dahling. Featuring model Sui He wearing an incredible fitted dress and flowing black cape combo designed by Roitfeld herself, the effect is certainly dramatic.
Also collaborating on the project was V Magazine founder Stephen Gan, as well as photographers Max von Gumppenberg and Patrick Bienert, who all contribute to this super stylish if not substance free short, that at least looks the part if nothing else. Whether or not the fashionable people the luxury car manufacturer are targeting will fall for this glossy offering will remain to be seen but the one thing that undoubtedly shines through is Roitfeld’s impeccable taste, which perfectly translates on screen.
This may be no Tony Scott meets Saab but if it’s the impetus Roitfeld needs to give us the fashion line we so desire then we’re definitely all in favor.
Karl Lagerfeld’s period film Once Upon a Time, which stars Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel, is finally here.
The designer-cum-director reportedly gave the actors (including Knightley, Clotilde Hesme, Lindsey Wixson, Stella Tennant, Tallulah Harlech) their lines just moments before shooting–which makes a lot of sense when you watch the film.
The dialogue is sometimes stilted and awkward. There’s one moment when Knightley, describing a hat to Amanda Harlech’s “lady of society” character, seems at a loss for words. But then, since Lagerfeld was supposedly going for a “natural effect” with the dialogue, that may have been the point. Or, maybe it has to do with the inexperience of some of the cast. Let’s just say we hope Wixson, who plays Miss Wonderbilt (wink, wink, nudge, nudge), doesn’t try to make the transition from model to model/actress any time soon. Either way, it seems that long pauses and sort of awkward dialogue may be becoming a Chanel signature of sorts.
That being said, there’s still a lot to enjoy about the film, which is set at the first Chanel store in Deauville, circa 1913. We see Chanel interact with the city’s fashionable ladies and come up with the inspiration behind some of her most iconic designs. When Tennant’s character Lady de Grey tells Chanel she’s wearing her husband’s jacket, the designer remarks, “Tweed jackets are very chic on a woman.”
And of course it’s worth watching for the star cameos alone. Along with Tennant, the Harlechs, Wixson, Knightley, and Hesme, Ashleigh Good, Caroline de Maigret, Saskia de Brauw, Brad Kroenig, Hudson Kroenig, Jamie Bochert, Baptiste Giabiconi, Sebastien Jondeau, Jake Davies, and more also make appearances in amazing period costumes.

AB-Normal is the streets-wear brand for these who prefer the kind of edgy simplicity that gives wearers a unique character of their own – the inspiration comes from sculpture. Naming his collection “Wear White”, designer Thaweesak Samanmit interprets the solid, strong structure of sculpture with a tender perspective. Using techniques that involves lines and polka dots, achieved through tucking and studs, the collection comes in an organic palette such as colors of soil, stone, cement and sand with white serving as a staple alongside beige, grey and black. The silhouettes remain simple, albeit with smart details in AB-Normal’s Signature “Simple Chic” style.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is an annual fashion show sponsored by Victoria’s Secret, a brand of lingerie and sleepwear. Victoria’s Secret uses the show to promote and market its goods in high-profile settings. The show features some of the world’s leading fashion models such as current Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge, and Lindsay Ellingson.
American network television broadcasts the show during prime time. The first few shows in the 1990s were held in the days preceding Valentine’s Day to promote the brand for this holiday. They were not aired on national television. In 1999 and 2000 the show was webcast. Beginning in 2001, the shows were moved ahead of the Christmas holiday season. Also in 2001, the show made its network television broadcast on ABC, though in all subsequent years, it has been broadcast on CBS. The show has been held at a variety of locations in different cities including Miami, Los Angeles, and Cannes. The first four shows were held at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, but since it has become a televised event it has most often been held at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City.
The show is a lavish event with elaborate costumed lingerie, varying music by leading entertainers, and set design according to the different themes running within the show. The show attracts hundreds of celebrities and entertainers, with special performers and acts every year. Each year, twenty to forty of the world’s top fashion models are selected to perform in the fashion show. In a typical year, this includes about a half dozen women under contract to the company, known as Victoria’s Secret Angels, who help publicize the event. The giant angel wings worn by the models, as well as other wings of various forms and sizes such as butterfly, peacock, or devil wings, have become emblematic of the Victoria’s Secret brand.

As if you needed another reason to have a “girl crush,” Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell share the cover of Germany’s Interview magazine – topless.
PHOTOS: Kate Moss Loses Her Top & Talks Johnny Depp In The December Vanity Fair
Believe it or not, Interview Germany is the very first German magazine that Kate was ever photographed for and she went all out…both literally and figuratively. Not only was Ms. Moss paired with another top supermodel, Naomi Campbell, but the shoot was done by none other than fashion photography duo Mert & Marcus.
Although the standout pictures in the article feature the two models topless, it’s more fashion spread than soft core porn.

Fashion film has evolved beyond videos of catwalks – and the big labels are starting to take notice
A blonde woman in a red fetish-style bikini moves to the slow beat of Love To Love You and an undercurrent of soft, ecstatic moans. She talks quietly in voiceover about her muscle-bound body: ‘I feel different to most women – stronger, leaner.’ She performs bicep curls with sculpted gold weights, the moans become louder.
Directed by Elisha Smith-Leverock, I Want Muscle won Grand Prize at last year’s ASVOFF Fashion Film Festival. Female bodybuilder Kizzy Vaines wore clothes by David Koma, Husam al Odeh, Lyall Hakaraia and Maria Francesca Pepe. The aim of the three-minute short, says Smith-Leverock, was to ‘play with taboos and gender stereotypes and to explore a different kind of female beauty’.
This weekend, the fifth ASVOFF film festival takes place at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. Over three days, visitors will be treated to filmwork as equally provocative and polished as Smith-Leverock’s.
Launched in 2008, ASVOFF has almost single-handedly encouraged an industry to reconsider the way it presents itself in film.
‘Fashion film is a vibrant, relatively new applied art form with huge potential,’ says founder Diane Pernet. ‘We’re still exploring exactly what the parameters are but I suppose the easiest way to define it is this: film where fashion is the protagonist, rather than a prop.’ (….)
