Katharina by Amanda de Simone for The Dirty Durty Diary September 2010 Issue 1

Gorgeous.  The Dirty Durty Diary is a fascinating new publication.  It posts a new diary entry every day for the month; this happens to be the inaugural entry.  While I’ve never heard of either photographer or model, both are gorgeous.  I love the effect to the images with the hazy double imaging.  Moreover, the styling is hot: deconstructed with romantic flair.  I like the unusual shape to the clothes as well.  The messy hair is a great touch.  I look forward to seeing what The Dirty Durty Diary will show me next.

Lara Stone, Freja Beha Erichsen & Mariacarla Boscono by Mert & Marcus for Vogue Paris October 2010

God J’adore Carine Roitfeld.  She does such a wonderful job helming Vogue Paris. Her editorials are amazing with excellent cutting edge styling.  Masks are not original; they were an age-old form of art for the aristocratic elite throwing parties.  Moreover, fashion has taken a hold of them with creative license.  However, trust Carine to make beautiful masks hardcore.  The styling and beautiful is strong, slightly off-putting, and so very French.  An excellent editorial to include in Vogue Paris‘s 90th Anniversary Issue.  I love the avante-garde theatrics of this.  Mert & Marcus are the perfect choice to shoot this as well.  They have had a long standing relationship with Vogue Paris.  Brava Carine.

Doutzen Kroes by Alex Cayley for Elle France September 2010

Doutzen is oh so very pretty.  Give the girl a beauty campaign already; she most definitely has the face and skin for it.  This editorial appears to have two different tones: one is more softly romantic and certainly more natural while the other sensually glamorous but seeming more airbrushed.  While fashion is entitled to an avante garde fantasy, I like seeing women in beauty shoots.  Not airbrushed inhuman perfection.  But Doutzen is just lovely.  No need for the touching up.
