Desert Queen

Anja Rubik by Alex Lubomirski for Vogue Deutsch July 2008

Stunning.  Absolutely stunning.  I’m not normally a fan of the tan skin and platinum blond combination but Anja is gorgeous here.  Fierce and intense.  Very regal.  “Desert Queen” indeed.  Her tan skin and deep smokey eye further enhance her hair.  The platinum really stands out in the best possible way.  Anja makes every shot striking.  Alex Lubomirski is rapidly rising in my ranks as a photographer.  He has vision and creativity.  Lovely.

Pyjama Parties

Sasha Pivovarova by Mark Segal for Vogue Paris December/January 2008

Utterly adorable.  The knitted loose cardigans by Rodarte are an excellent dash of color this white shoot.  Not to mention that white lion cub is the perfect addition to this.  While Sasha is her normal excellent self, I can’t help but focus on he cub.  It is waaaay too cute.

Like a Rolling Stone

Georgia May Jagger by Max Vadukul for Vogue China July 2010

Gorgeous.  Artfully disheveled with vivid color detail.  I like this entire shoot.  There’s something collegiately chic about it.  It’s a bit unusual for this to be during summer though; it feels more like an autumn shoot.  It’s a nice break from the normal beach shoots.  I love how she’s lounging across books with the well-lived hardwood floors and stone behind her.  It all comes together quite nicely.

Celine Resort 2011

I want everything.  Phoebe Philo has further immortalized herself into fashion history with her work at Celine.  Not only had she managed to turn Chloe into a cult fashion with those iconic bags and excellently crafted clothes, her return to fashion has utterly transformed Celine into the latest must-have.  And will probably continue to stand the test of time.  She has had the pleasure of creating many timeless pieces.  She’s ushering us into a new era of beautiful minimalist.  She’s most definitely on my list to watch.

Proenza Schouler Resort 2011

Proenza Schouler, without a doubt, is one of my favorite houses ever.  Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez demonstrate the exquisite craftsmanship of experience and the innovation of the young.  And with every passing year, they have the ability to enrapture us with what they have to offer.  This resort collection is no different.  Absolutely fantastic.
