Forever 21's Genius

Mass retailer Forever 21 has managed to do something that all lower end retailers dream of doing: knocking off designer looks and making a fortune. From caged booties to Balmain-inspired threads, Forever 21's fashion directors and designers are such geniuses. You can also add their marketing department to the list of in-house-genius. Doesn't their logo look quite familiar to you? Images from Forever 21 and


Who Loves Salieu Jalloh? ME.

I've always been waiting for Salieu Jalloh to really surprise me, in a way that would make me fall in love. He finally did it. See the full spread here, but below is a preview. Images from Red NYC.


Models on Another Level

In fashion, unless you working in the major cities, side-by-side with models and editors, members of the press and designers, you don't really get to know the people behind the job. You might hear them speak some words in a interview, but you don't REALLY get to know them.

Here are some clips of models, behind the fashion exterior. Most of them are several years old, but still great nontheless. (my favorite is Veruschka):

Soleil de Minuit

Natasha Poly (as shot by Inez and Vinnodh) on the cover of Vogue Paris for April 2010 posted to their website Natasha Poly's 6th cover of Italian Vogue (since her first one in 2004), and I must say that she looks great. Once can easily tell that she's gained weight since her first one, but who cares! She still has that same classic stare. The actual cover's concept and styling, reminds me of Charlize Theron's Vogue US cover back in October of 2007 (image from BRYANBOY). then posed a question to its faithful readers: Which of Poly's six French Vogue covers is your favorite? I immediately remembered her March 2007 cover, also shot by Inez and Vinoodh. In fact, the entire editorial that it came from, which also featured model Freja Beha, was one of my favorite editorials from that year. These shots mark when I fell in love with this creature from Russia, and it further solidified my love for Freja Beha. Take a look for yourselves. Images from HTownShop and as layed out on tFS.


Behind the Scenes at 25 Magazine

For 25 Magazine's new editorial "Defragmentation of Beauty", the staff put together this video of some behind-the-scenes takes of the shoot. It's fantastically edited and it shows the models at their best, doing their best.

As posted, "Watch as Karlie Kloss, Constance Jablonski, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Shu Pei Qin, Anja Rubik, Valerija Kelava, Maryna Linchuk, and Karmen Pedaru pose for photographer Marcin Tyszka and are transformed by illustrator Tomek Sadurski." Model Alana Zimmer is also featured.

Balenciaga's Formica Shoes

Nicholas Ghesquiere always has something wild to show, but manages to make it look minimal. For his Fall 2010 set at Balenciaga , he took different Formica pieces and had them built into the heels of the shoes. Separate from the collection, they look rather wonderful. They can be worn with a simple pant/skirt suit.

How Clever

This is how Muiccia Prada and company shot the Spring 2010 Campaign for Prada. Isn't it just clever?
