The November 2010 issue of Dazed & Confused is the gift that keeps on giving and none more so than with this Carrie Anne double header. Ford’s girl from Belfast features in a story titled “Double Exposure” by photographer Jason Kibbler and Dazed styling stalwart Robbie Spencer.
With the concept of a Prada-wearing Mephistophelean matriarch having already been thoroughly explored it is hardly surprising that the critical gaze would eventually shift toward the daughter as it has in this Dazed & Confused November 2010 editorial titled “Devil’s Daughter.” This story featuring Ford’s Dafne Cejas photographed by Anthony Maule with styling by Katie Shillingford is a departure from anything even remotely resembling mother and instead forges into new and uncharted territory.
Self Service Issue N°33 Fall / Winter 2010 is here. Yeah, the magazine that fancies itself a book and for good reason, it’s well heavy, demands thorough reading, and cries out to be judged by its richly embossed cover. No, that’s not actually stylist Joe McKenna on the cover, the cheeky bastards.
Some time back in September of, say, 1997 news of Zoo Magazine #28 blazed through a then nascent interweb. OK Computer was new and unfamiliar, irony had yet to be introduced to popular culture, and the promise of Brazilian model Daiane Conterato‘s cover story for a German fashion magazine called Zoo had yet to be fulfilled.
To complete the hat-trick of Vogue Hommes Japan editorials the Ford Models Blog presents Ford Men’s Eric Watts and Bobby Nicholas photographed by Brett Lloyd with styling by Nicola Formichetti. This forward looking S/S 11 story titled “Pop Boys” does what it says on the tin by picturing Eric and Bobby wearing Tom Ford and Dunhill respectively before colorful monochrome backdrops with the odd bit of gaffer tape. Move along, nothing to see here other than two devilishly handsome lads.
Frankly speaking nearly any story involving fashion editor and stylist Nicola Formichetti is worthy of mention not least because of his multiply held creative directing and fashion editing roles for Dazed & Confused and Vogue Hommes Japan. Formichetti’s work as a stylist for brands Uniqlo, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and the odd pop star is a testament his currency in the world of fashion.
From the Dept. of Old News comes this banger of a story…yup, nothing you haven’t already seen on MDC, The Fashionisto, or tFS. It just so happens that the issue in question arrived on these shores only just this week. We of course are talking about the Vogue Hommes Japan A/W 10 editorial that features amongst others Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews and AJ Abualrub photographed by Miguel Reveriego.
So far as the Ford Models Blog can tell it is never too late to post a Mad Max cum raptor story no matter how many rounds it has done on the interweb. And so it ought to surprise no one that we’re chuffed to bits over Ford Men’s Linus Gustin appearing in Numéro Homme 20 photographed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
Week 42 of 2010 surely ought to be considered Le non-officiel L’Officiel Hommes week with no fewer than four stories including this entry having been posted to the Ford Models Blog. Not that we are complaining! On the contrary, it is cause for celebration of the black tie variety on show by Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews and Isaac Carew in L’Officiel Hommes Germany 2 editorial photographed by Andreas Larsson and styled by Marcus Zietz.
Magazine covers are brilliant in the way that they require little or no context outside of simply being what they are: A periodical’s outermost page that traditionally displays the publication’s logo, volume, date, and, crucially, the issue’s leading subject in the form of a photograph, illustration, and/or typographic arrangement.
