W Magazine February 2013 | Cara Delevingne by Mikael Jansson

“Model of the Year” Cara Delevingne nails a big one in the W Magazine February 2013 issue.

Shot on location at the Palazzo Biscari in Italy, Mikael Jansson makes neat work of the stunning Rococo scenery with Cara Delevingne as muse. Each shot was as distinct as the next with a different backdrop each time but the culmination of it all came in the carefully curated mix of colored and black-and-white photos that would fit right into any art gallery.

The styling by Edward Enninful was just as impeccable. With not one clear theme in mind and just the extravagant backdrop to work with, he managed to seamlessly blend together the likes of Gucci, Balenciaga, Chanel, Prada, Oscar de la Renta, Dior and Burberry Prorsum among others. It was perfection.

Check out the rest of the W Magazine February 2013 editorial featuring Cara Delevingne by Mikael Jansson below.

John Galliano Returns to Fashion at Oscar de la Renta

John GallianoJohn Galliano makes a stunning out of the blue comeback with his return to fashion at the design studios of Oscar de la Renta. He has been offered a three-week residency by Oscar de la Renta himself, which will lead up to New York Fashion Week in early February. The position that John Galliano holds is unclear, as is his plans after this stint.

“I am an alcoholic, I have been in recovery for the past two years. Several years prior to my sobriety, I descended into the madness of the disease. I said and did things which hurt others, especially members of the Jewish community. I have expressed my sorrow privately and publicly for the pain which I caused, and I continue to do so. I remain committed to making amends to those I have hurt. I am grateful to Oscar beyond words for inviting me to spend time with him in the familiar surroundings of a design studio. His support and faith in me is humbling.” –John Galliano.

It is sad that the great John Galliano has been reduced to such shreds, returning meekly in a supporting role for Oscar de la Renta. It is a return to fashion nonetheless. The first step. The first step of what could be. So today we rejoice because today there is hope.

“John and I have known each other for many years and I am a great admirer of his talent. He has worked long and hard on his recovery and I am happy to give him the opportunity to reimmerse himself in the world of fashion and reacclimate in an environment where he has been so creative.” –Oscar de la Renta.

Lara Stone for Vogue US July 2011

With the stunning photo of Emma Watson by Mario Testino on the cover of Vogue US July 2011 on everyone’s lips, I would like to divert your attention to a beautiful and captivating film noir inspired editorial within the pages of that very issue. This editorial features Lara Stone in the leading role and Frida Gustavsson in fall’s latest collections accompanied by actor Alexander Skarsgard. Styled by Grace Coddington, a subtle melodramatic story of a femme fatale entitled Spellbound is told through the lens of Peter Lindbergh with significant usage of low-key lighting. Enjoy!

‘An air of smoky, 1940′s film noir chic permeated the most glamourous fall collections’ -Grace Coddington

Lara wears a lavender Gucci fox jacket and a pin-striped wool skirt from Ralph Lauren Collection.

Lara wears a Marc Jacobs silk-satin dress with a patent waistband. Bag and boots, all from Marc Jacobs. Frida wears a Marc Jacobs tweed jacket with sheepskin collar and skirt. Beret, handbag and boots all from Marc Jacobs. Alexander wears a Tom Ford suit, Prada shirt and Dolce & Gabbana tie.

Lara wears a Proenza Schouler velvet dress with chevron patterns and Tabitha Simmons pumps.

Lara wears a Balenciaga printed silk dress.

Lara wears a Yves Saint Laurent silk blouse, satin trousers and belt. Alexander wears a Ralph Lauren Purple Label suit and Hermes tie.

Glad that they included a black and white photo, it wouldn’t be film noir without it. And I think I might just know what I want to do for my next collection for school. Love the calm grandeur and Lara’s alluring gaze. Kudos to the team for going one up; a perfect complement to the cover.

The 68th Annual Golden Globes

The 68th Annual Golden Globes happened this morning and I thought I might take a peek at what some of the stars are wearing. It’s been a while since I’ve seen red carpet looks so here we go.

Amy Adams in Marchesa. Of course a red carpet would not be complete without Marchesa. To be honest I’m quite tired of hearing that name.

Ladies rocking the full-sleeve look. From the top: Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive (this one has a bareback from Fall 2010) and Leighton Meester in Burberry Prorsum and Jimmy Choo shoes.

A ‘big’ and very curvy Christina Aguilera in Zuhair Murad. (she is big by her standards) Had to post this.

Super sexy soft curls. From the top: Dianna Agron in J. Mendel and Jayma Mays in Alberta Ferretti.

Simple and clean. From the top: Emma Stone in Calvin Klein and Tilda Swinton in Jil Sander (Jil Sander Spring 2011 is the bomb I’m telling ya!)

Designer cameos. From the top: Eva Longoria in Zac Posen, Hailee Steinfeld in Prabal Gurung, Heidi Klum in Marc Jacobs (seen here with Seal) and Scarlett Johansson flying the flag for Elie Saab [only one :(].

Kaley Cuoco in a lampshade Katharine Kidd.

Ladies and gays OOGLE NOW! Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Prada

Natalie Portman in Viktor & Rolf. I just want to pluck that rose off her cleavage. She’s here because of her naughty thank-you speech.

Jennifer Love Hewitt in Romona Keveza. She’s too short and stubby and loose the belt girl. The runway version‘s tons better. The label had a dismal showing here so I’m only posting one look. Their bridal collections are more fun. Check out Farah Angsana while you’re at it.

Ruffles ruffles. I like them all. From the top: Jennifer Lawrence in Louis Vuitton, Julie Bowen in Tadashi Shoji, Lea Michele in Oscar De La Renta and Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang.

January Jones in Atelier Versace. One for the guys! Even Ryan Seacrest admitted he was distracted when he interviewed her on the red carpet. Love her in Mad Men.

My favourites. From the top: Olivia Wilde in Marchesa and Christian Louboutin shoes, Milla Jovovich in Armani Prive (those soft curls are TO DIE FOR!), Megan Fox in a custom-made Armani Prive gown, Mila Kunis in Vera Wang and Mandy Moore (say WHAT) in Monique Lhuillier.

Last but not least, Sandra Bullock in Jenny Packham. My favourite hairstyle on the red carpet because it’s the one I wanna have!
