Speaking of Crystal Renn (Ford+) / (Ford)…there is more, much more to discuss, not least of which concerns her story in Vogue Deutsch Oktober 2011 photographed by Sebastian Kim. Crystal boasts a bit of a reputation for transforming before the camera in ways unimaginable by other models, let alone actors. This Katie Mossman-styled story titled “As Time Goes by,” which clearly means something in German, is no exception and in fact presents the Barney’s Carine’s World Fall 2011 campaign model in an Old Hollywood style that calls to mind Rita Hayworth, Joan Crawford, and Katharine Hepburn. As if to demonstrate such 1940s styling can seduce again (verführt aufs Neue), which it clearly can, Crystal wastes no time in her brief and is seen wearing for her first look a knee-length dress with floral prints by Balenciaga by Nicholas Ghesquière, narrow belt by Salvatore Ferragamo, earrings by Camilla Dietz Bergeron; ring by David Webb, and pinching in her left hand a cigarette holder by Lynn Ban. The story continues for another dozen pages and with each look ever more glamorous than the previous. Hair by Franco Gobbi accentuates the elegance at every turn. Standing astride a statue of a greyhound dog, a blond Crystal is seen wearing a black, high-slitted silk chiffon dress with sequins and narrow belt by Salvatore Ferragamo, earrings by RJ Graziano, diamond bracelet by Roberto Coin, diamond rings on left and right hand by Carla Amorim and Buccellati respectively, and sandals by Jason Wu. For her final look, Crystal wears a floor-length, high-knecked dress with fur trim by Nina Ricci and various jewelry by Lynn Ban and Nicky Hilton. Suffice it to say this story, its style, and flawless execution are not only seductive, but are also personal favorites of the model herself. Considering the brilliant editorials Crystal Renn has done over the years, that speaks volumes. It is also clear from the story that no wire hangers were used. Ever.

It’s been a minute since this page has so much breathed a whisper about an editorial. The demands of the runway shows in seasons past have tended to request even the brightest editorials to quietly sit in the waiting room along with Reader’s Digest, Highlights, and the other dust-collecting magazines until finally the last show of Paris has concluded. This season, however I am determined to pass comment on the myriad (or at least one of the) excellent stories of what has become Magazine Mountain 2.0. The story that has been at Mountain 2.0‘s peak is the Steven Klein Vogue Italia settembre 2011 editorial featuring Ford’s Crystal Renn and Catherine McNeil. Titled “ʍǝıʌ ɟo ʇuıod ɐ,” this Patti Wilson-styled story is a 24-page exercise in vertigo induction. The story’s elaborate staging places Klein’s lens beneath a clear screen in order to accommodate a variety of funhouse perspectives. Klein’s affinity for uniforms and military detailing is indulged throughout the shoot starting with Catherine’s opening look, a leather corset jacket by (Es)* Artisanal by Fabrizio Talia, leather skirt by Salvatore Ferragamo, hat by Rodrigo Otazu, heels by Gio Diev, and leather gloves by Carolina Amato. Turn the page and a magenta-haired Crystal is seen seemingly on all fours, palms against glass, wearing a stretch satin bra by Mugler and latex skirt by Atsuko Kudo for Mugler. The point of view espoused by Klein’s story to say the very least is arresting and that Crystal Renn and Catherine McNeil are on hand to express it is in no way surprising.
