Does anything in life matter besides fashion, art, sex and disco? Short answer: no. In addition to my meditation mantra, those have always been the main tenants of my life and the same can be said for fashion illustrator and photographer Antonio Lopez. Lopez is largely forgotten today, but the new book from Rizzoli, Antonio: Fashion, Art, Sex & Disco, will easily change that.
In the September issue of Interview Magazine, cover girl Emma Stone is interviewed by Almost Famous and Jerry McGuire director Cameron Crowe. And after reading a few snippets of Emma’s interview, we are realizing the stone cold glare on the cover does not match up with the light hearted comedic actress’ sense of humor.
Did you pass by the newest issue of Interview Magazine wondering, who interviewed Johnny Depp? And why are they pushing Edward Scissorhands rather Tim Burton‘s new haunt, Dark Shadows? Well it ain’t Johnny, it’s Jack White. And whether he meant to or not, in the issue’s photo shoot, he’s channeling nearly every character Johnny Depp has ever played. From a veiled Mad Hatter, to Sweeny Todd in a massive Marc Jacobs hat, White has stepped into Depp’s deep dark shadow. See the side-by-side lookalikes.
One of our favorite editorial actresses, Keira Knightley makes a triumphant return in the April issue of Interview, shot by the always dynamic duo of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Stylist Karl Templer adorns the British beauty in Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Céline, Givenchy, Salvatore Ferragamo, Diane von Furstenberg, Chanel and Valentino as she smokes and smolders in the sultry spread. There’s a bit of good old-fashioned 80s androgyny meets Helmut Newton’s stark sexiness happening that fits Keira’s lithe bone structure perfectly. Full spread after the jump, kids.
Let’s just say Crystal Renn goes there. Displaying a Streepian level of commitment to her role as a mental patient, Renn appears wantonly grotesque in “Institutional White” from the March issue of Interview Magazine. The prolific Steven Klein captures the super as she is bound and gagged by a beautifully austere Karolina Kurkova, channeling the sadistic Nurse Ratched from the seminal institutional drama, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. With styling by Ludivine Poiblanc, “Institutional White” is simultaneously shocking, disturbing and brilliant.
