Italian Vogue – Oil Spill Chic?

Edited by

Italian Vogue   Oil Spill Chic?

How do you make an epic environmental disaster into a fashion spread? Is that tacky or brave?

Readers are quite divided over the controversial magazine editorial. The sight of a grey-haired (but beautiful) Kristen McMenamy is the first shocker. Models draped over oil-strewn rocks, trapped in nets, embellished with feathers. Models covered in dirt, oil, strangled with seaweed.
Some accuse the editors of glamorizing a tragedy.
I think that to reduce it as such would be too quick and narrow-minded. I believe that the spread is a statement on consumerism. This is a photo-editorial showing that the fashion industry does indeed acknowledge harsh realities in the world. This is a work of art by Steven Meisel and not an ad campaign.
The fashion pieces in the pictorial also served to showcase eco-artists and designers. In several photographs, Kristen McMenamy wears a seaweed-like rubber necklace. The necklace by Kathleen Nowak Tucci was made of re-purposed pieces of inner tubes from the Gulf Coast.
To check out the full magazine spread, click through to Refinery 29′s slideshow. For a closer look at the clothing used in the editorial, check out the video below:

Fab Cover: Kristen McMenamy for Dazed and Confused

Fab Cover: Kristen McMenamy for Dazed and Confused

Whilst the plus size/size zero issue continues to be debated within the fashion world, a new taboo is being challenged – age. For years, cosmetics companies have been developing ranges of anti aging products to help you defy age, but now maybe it’s time to embrace getting old.

Kristen McMenamy may be doing just that this month as she graces the cover of Dazed and Confused showing off her natural grey hair colour. Kristen is nearly 46 and I think she looks fabulous on the cover. Everyone is talking about this cover, but when magazines are trying to move away from heavy airbrushing, doesn’t it make sense for some celebs to also embrace their natural hair colour? I can’t wait to hear what you think of this cover.

COVER: Love Puts Eight Naked Models On Current Cover

Edited by

COVER: Love Puts Eight Naked Models On Current Cover

First there was two, now there are eight. Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy, Lara Stone, Janeil Williams, Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy, and Amber Valletta are the naked girls featured on the cover of the latest issue of Love Magazine. Apparently, this was done to prove a point: that all these girls have very different bodies, which is why they also printed their measurements. First of all, comparing Lara Stone’s body to that of 40 year old Naomi Campbell just seems unfair. Second, these ladies are models for a reason, they are all similar in proportions, tall, slender, long legged, with smaller breasts. Third, I might need to get my eyes checked, but in the above covers the girls seem very similar in shape…

What do you guys think?

Click here to see all eight.

SPREAD UM: “Supermodels Supernaturals” by Peter Lindberg for Harpers Bazaar September ’09

SPREAD UM: Supermodels Supernaturals by Peter Lindberg for Harpers Bazaar September 09

The super model loving lives on, but airbrushing dies? Hmm… I’ll see that when I believe it. Harpers claims that there is no makeup or airbrushing used in this editorial, and I’m not sure about that either. Regardless the models, in their 30′s and 40′s look amazing. Another plus is the sharing of supermodel approved beauty tips, such as not to eat dairy because it can lead to break outs from Claudia Schiffer.
