[Cut & Paste]…

Awesome editorial for Dazed & Confused magazine. It was photographed by Damien Blottiere & styled by Robbie Spencer. I love how futuristic this feels & looks…very neat concept!


[Avant-Garde]…Fashion Styling by Holly Suan Gray

It’s the combination of photography & styling that always gets me with great editorials. That’s why I’m enthralled with the work of Holly Suan Gray, a stylist that has carried her vivid & avant-garde eye to Vogue UK, Vogue India, and many other fashion glossies.

While all of her work deserves to be checked out, I was most excited by these two editorials – The Sleep Walker & Sanctuary

Super stunning & oh, so vibrant!

[High Roller]…Jessica Yang for Preview (Sept 2010)

I always hate coming across editorials months after they’ve come out in the magazines, but I quickly get over that anytime I see an awesome one like this one right here featuring model Jessica Yang. It was shot by BJ Pascual

I am in love with the opulent styling of this shoot. The color use is amazing and the lighting is fabulous. These are the types of shoots I’d like to style for…great work. Be sure to check out Pascual’s portfolio for more of his work (did I mention he’s only 21?!)…the man is NOT afraid of color  – both in fashion and in his models, haha!

[Bold Beauty]…Liu Wen for Vogue Germany

I’m digging this editorial featuring Liu Wen for Vogue Germany…it was shot by Greg Kadel.

Simply Stunning. Bothe the makeup and looks are just awesome!

[Going Places]…Editorial by Mark Segal

The layering of the looks in this editorial stun me…

I really like excess sometimes. This editorial by Mark Segal is just that – far too much fabric, looks, textures, and styles. But like I said, at times, I like the sensory overload of these types of editorials – especially when they’re done right. I think this editorial is a great example because the colors in each look correspond well AND I think each look is very different and isn’t so much about just piling clothes on top of a model. The editorial is called “Going Places” and I think it’s a good twist on the Nomadic style of clothing  – yes it may be high fashion, but people of nomadic lifestyles do wear layers, so I think the inspiration comes through quite clearly. I know some may call this another example of “homeless chic” which I DO NOT like (that “aesthetic” is distasteful and disrespectful to those less fortunate) but I think the difference between that and this editorial is that you can see the influences of nomadic Peoples in this editorial (think Norwegian nomadic peoples).

Anyway, there are pieces by Missoni, Chanel, John Galliano, Etro, Lanvin, and many other designers I love in these photos. It’s almost like an “I spy” of fashion!

I’m digging the makeup in this editorial…it’s super creative!

I would love to rock those rainbow eyelashes for a shoot of some sort…you can read more about this editorial here.

[We are the World]…Vogue Editorial by Steven Meisel

Gorgeous editorial for the Vogue US September  issue…

The spread features many ethnic models including Jourdan Dunn and Liu Wen. It was styled by Edward Enninful…I love the textures used in this shoot – just stunning!
