Anja-d-001

Anja Rubik may have cheekbones that can cut glass and an incredible presence in front of the camera, but the game-changer from Rzeszów is an icon not just because of her countless covers and numerous campaigns: Anja is a perfect representative of the new breed of model. As anyone will tell you, the industry has changed, and where 20 years ago it would have sufficed to have a stunning face and incredible posing skills, today it takes more.

Anja-d

Beauties are a dime a dozen, and the women who ascend to the highest levels of success go beyond the call of duty. Blessed with an unforgettable look and a tireless work ethic, Anja has distinguished herself across a variety of platforms, pushing her namesake brand into the pop cultural sphere. When you have Kanye West name-dropping you alongside Anna Wintour, and Karl Lagerfeld listing you among his favorites of all time, you’re in a class by yourself. Just check out of some of quotes these amazing entertainers and designers had to say about Anja if you doubt this any bit.

“Anja Rubik, is the ultimate model. She is one of the few models who manages to straddle the commercial and avant-garde with ease. She is a supermodel in the true sense. She has a beauty which can transform any character or tell any story. Anja has found her way through the fashion industry in a way which very few models can achieve, she is always leading by example. She has beauty, a vision and a brain for business.” – Edward Enninful

“Anja is completely unique as a model and as a person. From the moment she walked into our studio ten years ago she has been an endless inspiration .” – Inez and Vinoodh

“I first met Anja in her very early modelling days when Inez and Vinoodh shot her for V. That story remains one of my favorite ever and I felt like she was a star from the first moment I met her! She is also a gifted artist and is very visual. All that, plus her personality has led to her becoming as big as she is today.” – Stephen Gan

“She’s amazing, she’s an incredible model, she’s super beautiful. She really enjoys what she does, so it’s an absolute pleasure working with her.”- Mario Sorrenti

“I’ve been working with Anja for many years now and she never ceases to impress me with her professional and determined attitude towards her job. She is always focused, positive and of course, absolutely stunning.”
Frida Giannini, Gucci Creative Director

On the Bahamas shoot: “I loved shooting the campaign in the Bahamas,” says Beyoncé of the photoshoot shot by Jonas Åkerlund, the same photog who shot the TV commercial for her upcoming Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. “We shot on a beach outside of Nassau and the weather was perfect. The shoot was filled with vibrant colors and was inspired by the glamour of the late ‘70s.”

On her summer style: “I love the summer. I’m always in shorts, dresses, light, flowing fabrics, great sandals,” says Beyoncé of her summer looks. She credits her stylists Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith as “an influential part of the process” each day.

On her mother’s style influence: “I think my style comes from watching my mother from the time I was a little girl. She was so stylish. She was the first person I saw mix high end pieces with more accessible styles and make it all work. I’m also inspired by my sister, I love her bold approach.”

What do you think of Ri Ri’s  Ottawa Senators Red, Black, and White Jersey and Tom Ford Spring 2013 Gold Ankle Cuff Pumps. I’m personally feeling the pumps. They have a strong sex appeal to them and you can wear them with just about anything. Now for the question that I asked myself when I first saw these pics, on The Fashion Bomb Daily, and that’s where the hell is her pants. I am not feeling this look. A pant-less jersey is to be worn at home with sexy hair when your trying to look effortlessly cute. I think she was thinking about Chris Brown and walked out of the house without any pants on. I’m easily distracted too, I leave my pants home when I get side tracked as well, so I totally get it….NOT!

What a fun yet creative way to celebrate the Easter Holiday. I wish I could have spent my Easter modeling with the “Easter Bunny” in  gorgeous pastel fashions with a beat to a “T” makeup application. Seriously the models makeup is flawless.  Although this spread was shot about three months before the well know fun loving Easter holiday it still serves the purpose of the festivities, and it makes you think of beautiful spring dresses, candy and a creepy life size bunny rabbit, and in this case the bunny has on a fab pair of heels where else would you see that besides in fashion.

Model Iris Egbers poses for the March edition of Vogue Portugal. Photographed by Kevin Sinclair. Iris wears Alexander McQueen, Donna Karan, Givenchy, Thesykens’ Theory,and others designers for her shoot. The glam squad responsible for Model Iris Egbers look are Wardrobe  Stylist – Andrew Holden, Makeup Artist – Fumi Akinakagawa and Hair – Yoichi Tomizawa.

I personally love the color contrast used between her hair and skin. The makeup is kept soft not to take attention away from her over all look, and I love the deep bronze smoky eye that plays off those fire red tresses. Well done by true professionals.

Rihanna-Kate-Moss-Cover-V-Magazine-PnP

If you ever wanted to know what it may be like to see Katien Moss and Rihanna in girl on girl action well you don’t have to wounder anymore. V Magazine has a fashion spread that captures the very essence of bondage and implied sex, with fashion of course between the supermodel Kate Moss and the mega pop star Rihanna.

Mario Testino  had a front-row seat to their girlish antics, and when the photographer asked Rihanna when they could schedule a shoot, Moss was keen to participate. “Kate overheard us talking and she said, ‘I want to do it with you!’ Again, I was like, Are you fucking kidding me?” says Rihanna with a laugh. “I was dying on the inside. All my fantasies were coming true all at once: Mario, V, Kate Moss. I was like, This is an amazing threesome!”

Rihanna says of Moss. The concept of playing with each other using masculine and feminine identities evolved organically, she says, and then, naturally, at the end, they got naked. “And that was the best shot,” Rihanna laughs. “Take her top off and put that b-tch in my lap!”

Clear your throat…and just know that this post has everything to do with fashion and nothing to do with this mans body. This is a fashion editorial spread by model Joseph Marvullo photographed by Rick Day.

 

Dawn Richard is channeling the high fashion gods and getting prepped to release her solo album Goldenheart on January 15. The shoot was shot by celeb photographer Dimitry Loiseau, and features Dawn dressed as a modern day Joan of Arc.

The pictures go hand in hand with the lyrics and music. I want to get the hearts even more excited to hear the album. Dawn
