Balmain Spring Summer 2014 Ad Campaign


Mel Ottenberg styled superstar Rihanna for the 90s inspired ad campaign images of Balmain, photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

Here’s a quote from WWD:

Frequent Balmain wearer Rihanna is taking her love of the French label to the next level by appearing in its spring ad campaign, WWD has learned.
“In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,” said Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing, characterizing his casting coup as a dream come true.

“When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete,” he added, describing the “icon” of his generation as uncompromising, fresh and modern.

Even with her hair obscuring part of her face, the pop diva — who appears with Eminem on the chart topping single “The Monster” — is unmistakable with her riveting gaze and signature tattoos.

Atelier Franck Durand took care of creative direction for the campaign, with styling by Mel Ottenberg. (source)

Featured Article: Elle UK 2013 Covers Recap


Elle UK produced mainly close up shots for their subscriber covers line up this year. We don’t know whether it’s intentional or not. But some of them are stunning! We are talking about Kylie Minogue’s ethereal shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu, Scarlett Johansson’s beautifully demure photo by Rankin, Miley Cyrus striking black and white profile by Jan Welters, and Anne Vyalitsyna’s regal blue cover by Kai Z Feng.

On the other hand, their newsstand covers were not really stands out. The only newsstands version that caught our attention were Natalie Portman’s November and Candice Swanepoel’s December issue (she’s gonna wear that $10 million bra in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show). Even though the magazine had gone through quite a drastic make over on the cover (sleeker fonts, cleaner layout) but those gorgeous subscriber covers that wins us over.

But that’s only our opinion though. Perhaps one of your favourite covers from Elle UK this year is amongst these selections: Victoria Beckham for March (by Carter Smith); Rihanna for April (by Mariano Vivanco); Kate Hudson for May (by Benny Horne); Amy Adams for July (by Jan Welters); Pixie Geldof for August (by David Vasiljevic); Katy Perry for September (by Mariano Vivanco); Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for October (by Mariano Vivanco); or Michael Fassbender for December special collector’s edition (by David Bailey).

Featured Article: Glamour US 2013 Covers Recap


After a so so line up last year, finally Glamour US got their mojo back! This year’s covers are more interesting than 2012.

Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway was the first actress to graced their front page, photographed by Alexei Hay (the New York-based photographer also snapped the September issue with Jennifer Aniston). One of our favourite covers was fronted by actress Zooey Deschanel. The New Girl leading lady was photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth, who also photographed most covers this year. Frankfurt born von Unwerth shot the total four out of twelve slots for the Cynthia Leive edited magazine. She shot Dakota Fanning for March, Pink for June, and Lily Collins for July.

After Anna Wintour was appointed as the artistic director of Condé Nast earlier this year, you can see that there’s a subtle change on Glamour covers. Even though the amount of text are still ridiculous, but towards the end of the year, they were more streamlined and doesn’t affected the main image of the cover star. One interesting fact, Lady Gaga posed in front of plain white background for Patrick Demarchelier on December issue, which reminds us of the magazine’s signature before they going through major make over last year. But this could be one time thing only. We gotta see what future issues brings.

In another news, Glamour recently named Paul Ritter, previously at their rival Elle, as their new Creative Director. We can expect new contribution from him in next year’s issue because Paul will start at the magazine on November 11th.

The remaining covers this year were featuring actresses Kate Hudson by Patrick Demarchelier; Hayden Panettiere by Peggy Sirota (love the strong summer vibe!); Kerry Washington also by Peggy Sirota; singer Rihanna by Terry Tsiolis (her retro curls were amazing), and boyband One Direction who posed together with model turned actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley by Matt Irwin.

Featured Article: GQ UK 2013 Covers Recap


Before we start the recap, we’d like to express out concern to GQ UK: They should never make another cover with a tacky fire thingy like their July issue with Andy Murray. Ever. We loathe it so much.

In 2013, GQ UK has five covers fronted by beautiful females: Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain who showed her inner vixen in front of Ellen von Unwerth‘s lens, the cool singer Rita Ora, the ever sexy Rihanna (her snake hair was art directed by the acclaimed artist Damian Hirst), and the lovely actress Emma Watson who landed two cover slots (May and October).

The rest of the cover subjects this year were males: politician Boris Johnson, actors Idris Elba, Bradley Cooper, Henry Cavill, Russell Brand, Michael Douglas and James Franco, fashion designer and movie director Tom Ford, band Arctic Monkeys, and last but not least five members of the sensational boyband, One Direction.

The cover line up is quite ok, with majority of first timers on the front pages. They also celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Our fave are Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Arctic Monkeys, and Rihanna. We are looking forward for next year’s and happy anniversary GQ UK!

Tell us your fave in the comment box below.
