Steven Meisel and a Bevy of Models Make Zara Look High-End in This Flawless Spring Campaign

Photographer Steven Meisel is on a roll this season, having already produced beautiful campaigns for Moschino, Alberta Ferretti and Max Mara. His latest is a flawless Spring 2017 campaign for Zara featuring some of his favorite models: Vittoria Ceretti, Lexi Boling, Kiki Willems, Leila Goldkuhl, Lusiana Gonzalez, Yoon Young Bae and Nora Attal.

The images made us want to run to our nearest Zara store stat. “What a stunning campaign! Only Meisel could do it like this,” applauded anlabe32 the second the campaign dropped.

“Wait, Zara can afford Meisel? Money well spent, their best campaign!” congratulated an amazed Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Kendall Jenner Turns Photographer, Shooting 17 Covers for Love Magazine’s Spring Issue

From Marc Jacobs campaigns to covers of Love Magazine, Katie Grand has been a strong supporter of Kendall Jenner’s modeling career. Continuing the love-fest (get it?), Grand has enlisted the current face of La Perla to work behind the scenes to photograph several covers for Love‘s upcoming Spring 2017 issue. Following an open casting call via Instagram last year, Grand and Jenner have selected seventeen of their favorites, who’ve each been awarded a solo cover appearance.

Undeniably a nice start to 2017 for the winners, but our forum members won’t be buying a copy. “Behind the camera as well as in front of it now. God help us all,” snarled honeycombchild, disapproving of Kendall’s latest gig straight away.

“Stay behind the camera please and thank you. Perhaps she’ll retire from modeling and take up photography full time. One can dream right?” asked GivenchyHomme. (more…)

It’s that time of year again: Vanity Fair‘s annual Hollywood Issue has landed. Once again captured by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the 2017 issue celebrates actresses Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Stone, Ruth Negga, Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Aja Naomi King, Dakota Johnson, Greta Gerwig and Janelle Monae. The wonderfully diverse cast of women pose together for a three-page cover reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood.

Naturally, the cover became the topic of immediate discussion on our forums. “That’s a lot of good-looking women looking bad (or bored). And it feels like Amy Adams is always on the cover. Not that I’m complaining, but it seems VF really likes to support her,” stated tigerrouge.

Also not exactly thrilled was Miss Dalloway: “I’m so sick of Lupita in all of these things!! She is not even part of the award buzz this season, and besides she had her moment, why not let someone else get theirs! How shameful that Ruth is on the fold out, and Lupita is on the front of the cover — same for Adam’s actually! Also no Viola, again? Ridiculous! The styling is just awful, these are such a unappealing dresses!” (more…)

Frances Bean Cobain Stars Solo in Marc Jacobs’ New Spring 2017 Campaign

We’ve become accustomed to Marc Jacobs casting a legion of followers, friends and muses for his mainline advertising campaigns, but for Spring 2017, the designer is turning over a new leaf by enlisting only one (yes, ONE) person to appear in his latest campaign. Enter Frances Bean Cobain (no introduction necessary), who goes solo in the minimalist campaign image. Frances took to David Sims’ studio, posing for a stark black and white shot. Katie Grand selected a lace and sequin dress for Frances to model as she follows in her mother’s footsteps as a Marc Jacobs campaign girl.

Unfortunately for MJ, our forums aren’t buying this one. “THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR? Get me outta here,” complained an unforgiving anlabe32.

“Oh hell no! After all the controversy from the collection, THIS is what he did? Just grab another famous spawn. Reductive,” SpeakThatJDunn disapproved. (more…)

Lily Aldridge Stars in Peter Lindbergh’s Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017 Campaign

With numerous Vogue cover appearances under her belt along with the new Carolina Herrera campaign, Lily Aldridge must be doing something right — though she typically doesn’t get a whole lot of love from our forum members. Lily’s latest campaign is for Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017, appearing alongside fellow models McKenna Hellam and Andres Velencoso. Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, the trio was transported to the idyllic location of Taormina, Sicily for the campaign images.

Our forums first took a look at Andres’ campaign image and began to deliberate. “Oh this is stunning, exactly what I want from Ferragamo,” approved anlabe32 at once.

“That is a fantastic shot and the colors are so gorgeous,” raved Nomar. (more…)
