Vogue Italia Taps Gisele Bundchen, Vogue’s Most Prolific Cover Model, for June 2013 Issue

Steven Meisel photographed model Gisele Bundchen for Vogue Italia's June 2013 "Health & Beauty" issue. Based on a recent Forums count, this is Bundchen's 122nd appearance on a cover of Vogue (she is also featured on this month's Vogue Brazil cover). The 32-year-old has appeared on the front of various editions of the publication more than any other model to date (the runner-up is Kate Moss, with 100 covers). Given that Meisel has photographed every Vogue Italia cover since Franca Sozzani took over the top of the masthead in 1988 (If you're counting, that means he's photographed the main editorial and cover for Vogue Italia alone over 300 times), he's likely Gisele's photographer counterpart when it comes to prolific contributions to the Vogue family.

So this dream-team's latest effort for the Italian edition of the publication (the duo last paired up for Vogue Italia in December 2010) revolves around the idea that self-care is the ultimate luxury (especially, it appears, when you can delegate the care of your self to ethnically ambiguous, uniformed others) and, as the Vogue.it website puts it, that health and beauty are "reflected on our skin." The makeup credits for the cover(s) consist of Visible Radiance Facial Cleansing Cream, Super Liner Silkissime, Volume Million Lashes Mascara — "all by L'Oreal Paris," which was obviously an editorial decision. 

Bundchen is styled in a cashmere jacket and silk miniskirt by Louis Vuitton and eight pounds of diamonds by Chopard, Leviev and Chanel

Miranda Kerr Strips Down for KORA Organics

When you’re making what is undoubtedly a stupefying amount of money for dressing up as a sexy Lipton Tea Santa, it’s unlikely you need a day job. But the life organic is obviously something Miranda Kerr feels very strongly about. Case in point: the photo shoot she recently did for her own line of organic skin care, Kora Organics, which has just landed prime real estate on Net-a-Porter Beauty’s cyber shelves.

Kerr posted this teaser of the shoot to her approximately 1.6 million Instagram followers, amassing 127k likes. And we don't think they're complimenting her fine jewellery. Good to see that nipple slip didn’t affect Kerr's willingness to take her top off, which she has been doing rather tastefully lately after parting ways with her VS Miracle Bra. 

The shoot also functions as an inadvertent poke at retail behemoth David Jones. The department store recently dropped the 30-year-old model former brand ambassador, ending a five-year relationship. Not so worn out after all, is she DJs?

Christopher Esber and Holly Blake Go Bush for AW2013

esber1

Steering well clear of anything that could be described with a profusion of F words (flouncy, floaty, frilly, etc.), Christopher Esber makes immaculately tailored outfits that are at once both seductive (unique fabrics give new meaning to the word ‘luxury’) and stern (silhouettes are so sharp they could draw blood). 

His game of opposites continues in the campaign for Autumn 2013. Lensed by renowned photographer and fellow Sydneysider Holly Blake in a shadowy forest, the wild setting draws attention to the sleek office-appropriateness of Esber’s clothing as well as the surreal elements it’s lined with. Esber has a strong allegiance to elements that feel out of place, and model Caitlin Hill looks considerably so as she roams through overgrown bush like a Vogue intern who accidentally went bush on her way to Starbucks.  

In March, Esber won the BT Emerging Fashion Designer Award, earning him $1000 as well as access to mentoring and a financial planner. And last year he won the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival National Designer Award before taking on New York Fashion Week in a joint presentation with Kym Ellery.

He’s rapidly on the rise, and for anyone with any opinions on the current state of office-appropriate attire, this is an excellent thing.

The Latest Imagery from Dior is Seriously Stunning [VIDEO] (Forum Buzz)

Dior-1

I’m still not quite sure what to call these images (forum members spent half their time wondering whether they were for a Fall or Pre-Fall 2013 campaign or simply an editorial for Dior’s magazine), but I do know that they are seriously stunning. Willy Vanderperre photographed models Daria Strokous, Iselin Steiro, Marie Piovesan, Anastatsia Ivanova and Alex Kirtoka at the Opéra Garnier in Paris. Sure, I still have a little nostalgia for John Galliano’s Dior, but I can’t say that I really, truly miss him when the brand comes out with images that are equal parts opulent, elegant and wearable. 

I may love what I’m seeing (maybe the flashbacks of my high school visit to the Paris opera house are influencing that?), but not all forum members were as convinced. For the record, I think they might be a little crazy.

Dior-3

Vogue28 shared, “Advert or editorial from Dior Magazine… I don't appreciate any of this whatsoever. There's far too much going on for my taste and the background becomes the foreground here. But ugh… Daria and Iselin both look sensational and totally complement each other. Their hair looks fabulous in the video.” (That sounded like a little something to appreciate to me…)

“I'll be disappointed if this is the actual campaign and not just an editorial,” Elfinkova wrote. “I didn't really like last season's campaign but it was truer to Raf's aesthetic than this.”

Dior-4

Dior-5

Anlabe32 and jmrmartinho at least, were on my side. Both expressed hopes that this would be a campaign splashed all over magazines rather than an editorial that would only appear in Dior’s magazine.

Check out the video below to see the ladies in motion (accompanied by the song “Synrise” by the Belgian band, GOOSE).
