LaraStoneSinsVogueParis8 Lara Stone For French Vogue Complete Set

We showed the amazing cover shot of Lara Stone for Vogue Paris last week and now we have the interior editorial. Photographed by Steve Klein, the shoot was styled by none other than Carine Roitfeld herself who is one of those gifted types capable of making genius look as easy as the snap of a finger. Looking at the images here and on the next page, we rescind what we said earlier about Stone need to cover up more, but only if Roitfeld is calling all the shots. Via Fashionising.

ChanelChesky Chanel SoHo Windows By Julia Chesky

Was wondering where the heck NY fashion photographer Julia Chesky was an it turns out she moved recently and got hit by a double whammy of Mercury retrograde. Anyway, her windows are back, including this image from the freshly relaunched SoHo Chanel store. What’s great about Chesky, too, is she’s willing to have an opinion and she does a hilarious rant on some other SoHo windows:

Let’s not even touch the merchandising fail going on with some places just yet. I think Soho and I might end our evening attempts and stick to random fun day shots because this made me sad, Boston Newbury Street sad. New York, we cannot be on the same level of Boston. That’s just blasphemy! No offense to my Boston readers.

See one of the J.Crew window she has ish with on the next page. Not sure if J.Crew meant to make its female mannequin look like it was sort of packing, but I doubt it!

Dolce & Gabbana Naomi Tee Shirts For Fashion Night Out

04 September 2010, 00.06 | Posted in FASHION WITH A CONSCIENCE, celebrity, photography | 3 comments »


In conjunction with Fashion Night Out, Dolce & Gabbana are making a bunch of limited edition tees featuring Naomi as photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Klein, David LaChapelle, etc, etc, basically all the greats. Naomi will be signing the tees (though I’d rather she signed my Blackberry) at the Dolce & Gabbana store on Madison Avenue. Then the tees will be rolled out to D&G stores worldwide, with proceeds going to Naomi’s fave legal-defense-fund, I mean charity. And like I said last week, I’m finding myself more than ever overwhelmed by this stupid “FNO” event!  Next year, I guarantee, Wal-mart, Payless and all that ilk will be in on it, too, and it’s going to be one giant, meaningless mess, which it sort of is already.

CharlotteRonsonPaper Paper Mags Shes Got Balls Or Does She??

Paper magazine just put up on feature with 12 creative women, who get a chance to explore their masculine side by dressing up as guys in a feature called “She’s Got Balls.” The transformation are pretty good, in a million years you’d never guess some of them. One of the best parts though are their quotes on the experience. Said Charlotte Ronson, transformed above, “I just had to stand there and be serious and not smile, and I’m very good at that.” So true that about men and seriousness! Two more after the flip. Try and guess…stumped? Float your cursor over the image and it will show the name.

Mentioned as a hot fall item on Elle back in March,  Tommy Ton recently captured them out and about. They’re designed by New York-base shoe designer Tania Spinelli for womenswear designer Jen Kao.

NY Times Corrine Day Obit

CorrineDayIamFashion NY Times Corrine Day Obit

When first the news starting popping up that Corrine Day had passed, I honestly didn’t know who she was. But then it turns out I very much knew her work, as she is the photographer who brought Kate Moss to the light. The NY Times obit on her that was published today is a worthwhile read because you get to know the back story behind her and Moss, plus the details of someone who lived an interesting life. For instance, did you know that Day’s pics of Moss kicked up so much dust that Moss’s agent recommended she stop working with her. And she did though they did go on to do work later on. The photo here (via Iamfashion) is Day and Moss’s first shoot together, done when she was just 15.  On the art of photography, Day said, ““Photography is getting as close as you can to real life,” she said, “showing us things we don’t normally see. These are people’s most intimate moments, and sometimes intimacy is sad.”
