Ready for Takeoff

Um, can we talk about how fabulous Kerry looks in the October issue of Glamour?

image

Red is so her color. However, I have to be honest. Not crazy about this cover shot. Too much arm, too little of Kerry’s pretty face.

image

It’s really easy to forget she’s just 5’4”.

"I’m sexy and I know it."

image

THOSE LEGS.

image

I hate the term “classy.” But this look is classy. The hair could use some styling, though.

All in all…a good shoot. Let Kerry be her sexy, beautiful self and you’ve got gold.

The issue hits newsstands September 10.

Kate Escape

Really digging this British Vogue editorial featuring the lovely Kate Moss. Stripes and whiff of the ’60s?

Yes, please.

A Swift Kick in the Pants

Taylor Swift is on the cover of the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

And inside the mag, she wears several pairs of pants. Like so.

I’m not a Taylor Swift fan, but kudos to Beth Fenton (the fashion editor for this shoot).

Swifty is lean and leggy (a trait that’s just about guaranteed when you’re 5’11”). It’s both genius and a no-brainer to put this girl in pants. 

Of course, she’s totally living up to my oft repeated rant the adage that musicians/actresses/reality show stars generally make crap models. 

But the pants look good.

"A Shot of Scotch" is probably my favorite editorial of all time. It stars Linda Evangelista and was shot by Arthur Elgort for Vogue in 1991. 
Google that ish.

Kerry’d Away

As soon as I laid eyes on this Vogue Italia spread featuring the beautiful Kerry Washington, I knew I had to share it here. It is, by far, the best celebrity editorial I’ve seen all year. The clothes, hair, and makeup are flawless.

Just let the gorgeous wash over you.

Gladiators, which magazine should we petition for an editorial starring Kerry and Tony Goldwyn?!

Country Strong

In honor of the London 2012 Summer Games, the June issue of Vogue features several hard-bodied Olympic hopefuls, and the lithe Karlie Kloss, as seen through Annie Leibovitz’s lens.

The results are pretty fabulous. Check ‘em:

Hope Solo, Ryan Lochte, and Serena Williams on the cover.

Luv the first shot of Ashton and Karlie. Using her as a stand-in for the hurdle was inspired.

The first shot of Dwyane and Karlie seems kind of silly since he’s attempting to shoot, but he’s obviously shooting away from the basket. I guess they wanted readers to see him from the front, but we get that view in the last shot.

Still…well done, Vogue.

Hamming It Up

Nowadays, it seems the general public is fascinated with men who look like girls. They’re skinny (I think I could share jeans with half the actors under 30 in Hollywood), have no body hair whatsoever, and their faces are…pretty. 

Thank goodness for Jon Hamm. Don’t get me wrong; he has a great face. But no one’s ever going to call Jon “pretty,” know what I mean? 

OK, enough commentary. It’s time to drink in all the broad-shouldered, square-jawed handsomeness Mr. Hamm is serving up in the latest issue of Esquire UK.

Goofy has never looked so good.

Justin + Jimmy

Fashion editorials are often characterized by dim lighting, odd camera angles, and expressionless models posed in unnatural positions. 

However, the December GQ editorial featuring Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon is the antithesis of all that. Below are my favorite photos from the shoot, which was photographed by Peggy Sirota.

Aren’t these photos hilarious? Good job, fellas.

Does Lenny Kravitz age?

That was a rhetorical question. Clearly the man does not age. I mean, have you seen him recently? Photos in a minute.

First, the reasons I ♥ Lenny:

  • He’s an amazingly talented musician. If you don’t already have them, download every song on his Greatest Hits album. Obviously he has other fabulous songs, but those are a good start. (You can thank me later.)
  • Um, he’s hot. REALLY HOT.
  • He’s a fellow halfie! And I knew he was my kind of people when he said this in an interview: “I decided I was tired of people telling me I wasn’t black enough, I wasn’t white enough, I wasn’t Chinese enough.”

Preach, Brother Lenny!

OK, now for the photos. These are from an editorial he did for the Fall/Winter 2011 issue of The Block magazine. (Photographed by Steven Pan, styled by James Worthington-DeMolet.)

Yes, I kicked this off with a shirtless pic. And?

image

The requisite soulful shot. He is a musician, you know.

image

Staring off into the distance. What is he thinking? (I could tell what I’m thinking, but I’ll refrain.)

image

"I’m a rockstar."

"But I’m also a gentleman."

There aren’t too many men who can pull off fur and a turtleneck.

When The Stars Align

"Don’t You Know Who I Am?" in Tatler’s August 2011 issue is one of the more creative editorials I’ve seen in awhile. Hat tip to photographer Robert Trachtenberg and fashion editor Anna Bromilow.

In each photo, a model holds a photo of the celebrity she’s impersonating up to her face, or obscures it in some way, negating the need for a physical resemblance or elaborate makeup. Clever! 

We’ve all seen models and actresses and singers done up to look like other models and actresses and singers. I’m not knocking the concept, but oftentimes the execution isn’t exactly novel. This editorial is an exception.

These are my favorite shots.
