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.
The Daily Gasp has been rather irregular as of late but, to be honest, there hasn’t been that much to gasp at — I’m looking at you Marc Jacobs. Enter Adele. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott photographed the Grammy darling for a stunning editorial in Vogue and Ms. Adkins is giving serious face throughout. Gallery after the jump!
Clad in a clingy Calvin Klein, Lara Stone looked every inch the supermodel as I sat down — flustered and fresh off the subway — to interview her and photographer Alex Prager about their collaboration with Mercedes-Benz. During our little chat in the swanky Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge, I tried to explain the concept of a spirit animal — I muttered something about Native American mythology as the concept isn’t particularly clear to me either — but I feared that it would be lost somewhere in translation. After a few more explanations, we finally got around to the heart of the question – ”Who is your celebrity spirit animal?” As soon as she said the name, I realized the answer was fairly clear.
As expected, Calvin Klein trots out Lara Stone once again for its spring 2012 Jeans campaign. And as expected, Lara trots out her impressive rack, going topless alongside newcomer Matthew Terry in the steamy ads shot in St. Barts by leading lensmen Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Meanwhile, Terry also stripped down with fellow professional hunks Myles Crosby, Arran Sly and Chris Garavaglia for Calvin Klein Underwear with the legendary Steven Klein capturing the copious flesh on display in Joshua Tree. If all the six packs don’t strike your fancy, the brilliant hues surely will.
Eschewing the burgeoning trend of casting relative unknowns for the spring 2012 campaign season, Versace stayed true to form and went big and bold with supermodel of the world Gisele taking a star turn.
Kate Moss has done Davie Bowie for a Vogue cover before, lest we remind you of this stunner from Vogue UK‘s May 2003 issue. And god (i.e. Anna Wintour) knows Vogue Paris covers have only been decent to pretty good since Emmanuelle Alt took over the reins earlier this year, but nothing quite gasp-worthy.
