It’s a rare thing for a designer to become so enamored with a model that they’ll build a show finale around them, but that’s exactly what Karl Lagerfeld did for Ford Image’s Ashleigh in Chanel’s most recent couture show, which also saw Ford Image’s Lexi on the runway. A pregnant Ashleigh closed the show in a custom-made bridal gown by Lagerfeld, walking with the designer as he made his final bow. This was one of those moments that can’t be replicated.
Raf Simons created something of a winter wonderland for Dior’s Fall 2014 couture collection, which saw Ford Image’s Yulia open and Lexi on the runway. Simple hair with minimalist makeup made each model a shining example of understated beauty. Clad in ivory and fur, these girls were ice queens in the best way possible.
The last time we saw Lexi on the cover of Vogue Italia, she was going mod in polyurethane pieces. For the magazine’s most recent cover, styled by Karl Templer and photographed by Steven Meisel, the model is more traditional in refined pieces for the present day. With makeup by Pat McGrath and hair by Guido Palau, this is an issue we can’t wait to get our hands on. Stay tuned to the blog for more.
Schiaparelli was founded on the principles of surrealism, and the brand’s Fall 2014 Couture show, which saw Kayla open as well as Jane and Alyosha on the runway, was no different. The 3 models walked in hyperbolic outfits with oversized sleeves and clashing prints. It takes a strong woman to pull off a Schiaparelli look, and these girls were up to the challenge. Elsa would have been proud.
