i-D Magazine to Launch Online in Australia

Abbey-Lee-Kershaw-for-i-D-Magazine-Fall-2011-DESIGNSCENE-net-01

British magazine i-D relaunched its online home in November last year after being adopted by the Vice family, continuing the trend of glossies to scale down on print and up the focus on digital. Now the fashion media paragon is taking things one step further by launching an antipodean version of its renovated site.

The video-focused i-D.co will be headed up in Australia and New Zealand by Vice Editor-at-Large Briony Wright. No specific date has been given for the launch with the news dropped teasingly via press release. The site will incorporate antipodes-specific interviews, opinion pieces, fashion films, personal columns and fashion shoots into the existing global content created by the publication's London-based team.

“Australia and New Zealand are brimming with unique talents that have been waiting for an international platform as smart and captivating as i-D.co," Wright stated in the release. "We couldn’t be more excited about being part of the evolution of this amazing brand and to break new ground here with the distinctive i-D voice.”

Editorial Director Holly Shackleton stressed that like the London and New York versions, our own i-D.co will strive to occupy a unique place between print and digital. “i-D.co marks an exciting new chapter in i-D’s history and we’re so excited to expand our fan base into new terrain like Australia," she elaborated. "The site is so much more than a magazine brought to life; it’s the go-to destination for a global community of fashion fans who heard it here first.”

It’s not exactly news we saw coming, but it now seems a natural extension. Vice has had its hooks in Australia and New Zealand for awhile, while left-of-center publications like Oyster have experienced immense growth thanks to an increased concentration on unique digital content. Brit niche magazine-cum-site 10 Magazine also recently launched an Australian version under ex-Harper’s Bazaar Editor Alison Veness-McGourty, combining geographically specific features with content created in London.

Considering how much imported magazines cost at Australian newsstands, we’re psyched to join the i-D family. Wink-faces all round.

Following a strong response to her disturbing anonymous account of posing nude for Terry Richardson, Charlotte Waters has come forward with her story publicly, in an interview with Vocativ.com. Now a 24-year-old nurse's assistant living in Los Angeles (Richardson photographed her when she was a 19-year-old NYC art student), Waters had experience posing nude for artists like Richard Kern and Ron English, but nothing had prepared her for what happened when she visited Richardson's studio.

She says that she was compelled to share her story because she kept seeing press about Richardson which was all vague rumors and allegations: "I wanted to say, 'Hey, I’ve experienced this first hand. These aren’t just rumors.'  But I wasn’t sure I wanted to come out about this very embarrassing thing I did, so I was just sitting on it for a while. And then I realized that what happened to me is something that has happened to other people and will likely continue to happen until his dick falls off, so I have to say something. I did it through Reddit because I could do it anonymously, and that seemed like a safe way to start.”

"Odd image to choose for a cover. It's seems like Nadja was tired and decided to sit on the footpath for a rest, and Mariano just kept on shooting," wrote AL92

Bertrando3 commented, "She's beautiful but the odd pose/cropping + the outfit makes it difficult to really appreciate this photo."

Nepenthes seemed to really appreciate the cover writing, "Beautiful, relaxed and effortless. Nadja looks beautiful and the colour scheme is great!"

"I quite like it. The pose is indeed a bit unconventional but it creates a spontaneous and carefree mood. Nadja looks lovely and she actually gives me Raquel vibes," wrote mikel.

Whilst it's a pleasure to see a deserving model get her first cover of Vogue, I don't think this is the best picture of Nadja Bender. There's something about the evident post-production which is throwing me off.

Naomi Campbell is Dying to Host SNL; Claims She Could Handle the Phone Jokes

In an appearance on CBS This Morning to promote her new modeling show, The Face, Naomi Campbell revealed that like any other human, she has dreams yet unfulfilled.

For example, she would love to host Saturday Night Live: "I think sense of humor is the best thing in the world. To make fun of yourself.  To be another character. Just to—and you can always say, 'I was just acting. It wasn’t me.'"

"But listen, you know, Naomi," cut in interviewer Gayle King, "if you do Saturday Night Live there will be some phone jokes, you could take that?"

Campbell didn't skip a beat: "Of course, I’ll take that. I pretty much get it every interview I do. I think, I know—I did a Dunkin’ Donuts commercial – with Zach Braff, was directing, the actor, and that was kind of in that vein. I mean, it’s not nice to the person, and I’ve apologized for that, but the actual action, I’ve made fun of myself."
