Steven Meisel shot Kill Your Darlings actor Dane DeHaan for Prada Man Spring/Summer 2014 ads. This continues the trend of Miuccia Prada using indie actors of varying levels of popularity model her menswear collections. Dane DeHaan looks like a he is a great fit to me. He has the little bit of strangeness that works well with the clothes and the ad campaign. Photo from ONTD.
Sending congratulations to Fei Fei Sun for being the first solo Asian model to cover Vogue Italia. The cover was shot by Steven Meisel. He always shoots the Vogue Italia covers. Fei Fei Sun looks great in the pictures inspired by photographer Richard Avedon and 60s model China Machado. Photos from Models.com.
OMG! Watch Karen Elson, Raquel Zimmerman, designer Alber Elbaz, and two male models dance to Pitbull for Lanvin. This is the best fashion video I have seen in a long time. It is fun, cute, hip, and funky. Plus the fashion is great! Who doesn’t love a little Lanvin?
The fall/winter 2011/12 campaign video was shot by Steven Meisel. Who do you think was the better dancer? I think Karen has got Raquel beat, but Alber really did it towards the end. He is too cute for words. Also what is up with the sudden influx of fashion videos? I’m not complaining.
Plus size models Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley, grace this Steven Miesel Vogue Italia cover.This cover is so beautiful. I know some people will probably have a problem with plus size models being seen half naked and around food again, but the cover is so beautiful. I am so happy to see plus size models on the cover of a MAYJAH fashion magazine. As always, thought? Photo from Models.com.
Like me, Anna Sui has known she wanted to work in fashion since she was a tiny tot. My love of fashion came at the age of three, hers at four. Anna Sui moved to New York City from Detroit, Michigan to attend Parsons School of Design. While in New York, Sui hung out with Steven Meisel and models like Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista. They encouraged her to produce a fashion show after years of working out of her studio, and her brand exploded from there.
After looking at last Thursday’s Prada show, I think we can all say that Pat McGrath is THE Mistress of Make-up, which is why she is the first in a new series I like to call “Of Note.” The look was natural with pinched pink lips, pink cheeks, and light,natural brown eyes. Whenever you see an editorial or runway show with spectacular faces, it is usually her creation. The self-taught beauty queen from England was inspired by her Jamaican mother’s love of fashion, make-up, and old movies. Those influences taught her more about make-up artistry than the few art foundation courses she took at Northampton Art College ever did.
Just like the fashion industry needs to show more plus size models and Black models, they need to show more Asian models too. The world is not full of one type of person. This December’s Vogue, the one with Angelina Jolie on the cover, will feature an editorial with Asian only models. Now if only we could get an equal representation of all kinds of models in each mag. I’m tired of these special cases. If this were normalized, we wouldn’t need special editorials. How do you all feel about this?
L–R: Du Juan, Tao Okamoto, Lee Hyun, Hyoni Kang, Liu Wen, Bonnie Chen, So Young Kang, and Lily Zhi.

DUH!!!! Twitter is everywhere. It has popped up in some idiotic “song” called LOL smiley face. I hate that song. Spare yourselves now and try not to look it up. Now twitter has infiltrated fashion. There a ton of fashion people on twitter, so it makes a little sense to put a piece of Twitter into a fashion spread right!?!?!? Well Vogue Italia and Steven Meisel did just that for the December 2009 issue. The editorial is genius! Who would have thought to use the Twitpic as an editorial? I love it!
