Here’s Lauren Hutton and Jaime King, looking divine in Westwood McLaren from Rellik, shot by Alasdair McLellan for Love magazine. (more…)
Here’s Lauren Hutton walking the Bottega Veneta SS17 show. It’s not even about an ‘older woman’ being cast in the show. Just someone who looks elegant and has allure and sophistication. Who needs pizzazz and pyrotechnics when the casting and clothes are this good? (more…)
Oh! How fantastic is this ancient footage of the supers on MTV’s House of Style, which just resurfaced on District MTV? It’s Cindy Crawford talking to Naomi, Linda, Lauren, Christy and Beverly Johnson about getting scouted, making it in modelling and feminism. Plus – added bonuses! – cameos from Kate Moss, Polly Mellen and Anna Wintour and a young model in original grunge-wear on a go-see. (This footage is from the early 90s).
Watch it here and thank me later… UPDATE: DAMN! District MTV is no more and that footage is nowhere to be found. Sigh! Sorry folks…
I just clocked this Vogue Paris November cover. Well, I can’t tell whether it’s old or new. It’s got a slightly muted quality and the ‘girls’ are in standard ‘classic Vogue cover’ uniform of 501s and white shirt – a look we’ve seen a million times (and I personally never tire of). Daria, Stephanie and Lauren could all be in their 30s-40s and going by hair, make-up, styling, lighting, even the colour of the coverlines, this could be from any time between the late 80s and now. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Is it classic, or lazy and a bit predictable? I haven’t made my mind up but my instinct says it’s timeless and beautiful. What do you think?
