The Black Issue: 10 Pioneering Models of Color

Edited by

Diversity has never been the modeling industry’s strong suit, as highlighted by Vogue Italia‘s groundbreaking “Black Issue” from 2008. What was so groundbreaking was the fact that it happened at all — an international fashion magazine drawing attention to racism in its own industry. But before that “Black Issue,” these 10 ladies were making strides on and off the runway.

10 Fashion Stars of the 17th Annual Out 100

Edited by

Andrej Pejic gets wrapped up in Nastassja Kinski. Brad Goreski channels Yves Saint Laurent. And Nicola Formichetti holds up two pork shanks. Is this just another day in the glamorous life? Yes, but it’s also Out Magazine‘s homage to some of the fashion industry’s best and gayest. For their 17th Annual Out 100 list, the mag enlisted the talents of Gavin Bond to create portraits inspired by iconic photos of the past. Mining the catalogs of Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn and Helmut Newton, among others, Bond’s photos serve a fitting tribute to the 100 queens, trannies, lesbians, and other assorted queers that showed that if things don’t necessarily get better, they at least get fabulous.

Bookclubbin’: Marisa Berenson: A Life in Pictures

Edited by

Marisa Berenson has led the kind of charmed, impossibly chic and devastatingly fashionable life that is all but impossible to replicate today.  If only because charm, chicness and style are all but impossible to find today. Having lived her entire life in front of the camera — Marisa’s christening portrait appeared in Vogue and she covered Elle magazine with sister Berinthia “Berry” Berenson when she was five – guest editor and longtime friend Steven Meisel collected some of Berenson’s most iconic photographs, as well as personal pics of friends and families, in Rizzoli‘s goregous new tome, Marisa Berenson: A Life in Pictures (2011).

I’m Ready for My Close-Up, Mr. Testino: The 10 Most Editorial Actresses

Edited by

Anna Wintour has been credited/blamed/lauded/criticized for the current proliferation of celebrity-driven magazine covers of the past 15 years or so. Love it or hate it, a model has a better chance winning a Pulitzer than landing a U.S. Vogue cover — with a few notable exceptions. While stars are rightfully and contractually beautiful, however, not all of them can cut the couture mustard. Then there are those ladies who love the camera and the camera is kind of obsessed with them. Here, the 10 actresses who give the best editorial — and give models a run for their money — are given the countdown treatment.

IN REVIEW: Extreme Beauty In Vogue

IN REVIEW: Extreme Beauty In Vogue

There’s nothing like having high quality prints of Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Steven Klein, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel and several other established photographer’s work in the confines of your own home. I had the opportunity to snag a copy of Dolce & Gabbana’s collaborated photo compilation, Extreme Beauty In Vogue, before it hit’s shelves in October, and I must admit, I feel like a child staring at a picture book, completely mesmerized by every photo. Edited by Phyllis Posnick with an essay by Eva Respini, Extreme Beauty In Vogue exposes photographic, stylistic and journalistic perceptions of female beauty and opinions on allure. Featuring two centuries of work, the evolution of cultural attitudes on women is exposed in this coffee-table must have. And for those of you hung up on Vogue’s typical conservatism, there’s enough nipples, asses, bestiality and blood to suit your fancy. Shove your Beatles anthology to the side folks, because this $55 investment is what your dinner guests should be snooping through!
