Cover Wars: Victoria Beckham by Camilla Akrans for Harper’s Bazaar UK May 2012

Victoria Beckham by Camilla Akrans

When is there not a time that Posh is bringing it full force? This is why she is my sytle icon...


Cover Wars: Lara Stone by Cuneyt Akeroglu for Vogue Turkey April 2012

Lara Stone by Cuneyt Akeroglu

LOVE. I love Lara Stone, and I feel like I haven't seen much of her lately. This cover works for me on so many levels. The close up works so well. It's direct, and it draws you right in. Perfection. What do you think? Does this cover work for you?



Cover Wars: Aymeline Valade by Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello for Numéro #132 April 2012

Aymeline Valade by Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello

As usual, Número never disappoints. I love teh colour treatment, and the drama. I'd stop to check this out on a newsstand!

Photo #87: Pondering

I loved this guy. I'm not sure why he was at Union Square, but he looked so... absorbed. It was great.I also just love the way this shot came out. The colours from the flowers in the background etc. It came together really nicely and I loved it :)

365 Photo Challenge: Day #86

via PLola
Photo #86: Old Friends

I LOVED this guy. I actually couldn't stop following him around. (You'll see more shots of him soon). Do you SEE this print? It's gorgeous! I love that as a young man, he's fashion savvy enough to recognize how beautiful it is, and not be afraid to incorporate non-bland things into his wardrobe.
(And OMG that haircut. Yowza!)

365 Photo Challenge: Day #85

via PLola
Photo#85: Protest

I have no idea what this guy's story is, and I only got this shot by chance, since he was actively running away from me (I assume like many Occupy members he didn't want his picture to turn up in a paper). But I would have loved to find out his story. I'm always drawn to the interesting faces in a crowd. But then, isn't everyone?

This kid was awesome. I really like him. And his style sense was great. I'm really into the whole "see how the real people put things together" sense.

Photo #83: Happy Couples

They were cute. I'm not a huge fan of PDA, but they looked so happy and I'm down :)

365 Photo Challenge: Day #82

via PLola
Photo #82: Guy Fawkes

I remember when Occupy first started there was a lot of uproar over whether or not it was appropriate for the protestors to wear masks. While I'm not explicitly against it, I do think it sends the wrong message. I won't even lie, the V masks skeeve me out a bit.

Editorial: Zhenya Katava by Matthew Priestley for Fashion Gone Rogue

Zhenya Katava by Matthew Priestley

I am in LOVE with this editorial. It is the perfect mix of colour, punk, edgy and high fashion. 

365 Photo Challenge: Day #81

Photo #81: Up in the Air

This shot took me ages to get, and I'm still not super in love with it, but it was hard to get using a long lens in a crowd. Eh. It happens. It helped that this guy was determined to get this tricked down and literally did it over and over and over again. Slow and steady my friends....

365 Photo Challenge: Day #80

via PLola
Photo #80: Dimple

In case you were wondering, I haven't abandoned my 365 Photo Challenge. I've been super busy, so I've fallen almost a month behind, but I'm back on track, and I'll be posting the missing photos over the course of the next week with a "backdated" tag, so that when I come back to them I'll know I fell behind. Anyway, this photo is from a set that I shot while in NYC last Friday. You'll see the rest of them in the following weeks, and in the backdated posts. 

I was on my way to visit the grad school I'm applying to for next year, and found myself in Union Square, stumbling onto Occupy Wall Street 2.0 in the process. It was an interesting experience, and I even saw a small altercation with police. (One officer pulled out his camera phone to record a protestor...) There were so many interesting faces that I was like a kid in a candy store. I only meant to stop for 15 minutes and then move on, but I ended up staying for THREE HOURS. There was so much interesting fashion and so many personalities. I had a lot of fun, even if my feet were killing me by the time I left!

The reason I loved this photograph was because of how sincere this guy's face looked. You can't see it but he's greeting a friend he ran into, and I just loved how welcoming his face looks. And OMG dimples. Adorable? Adorable.

I can't wait to show you the rest of the amazing faces that I found while I was there. Hopefully I won't fall behind on the 365 again, although with graduation and final projects coming up, no promises!


Cover Wars: Yasmin le Bon by Robert Harper for Playing Fashion April 2012

Yasmin le Bon by Robert Harper

Do you love those eyebrows or do you love those eyebrows?
I love covers like this because they really pull you in with barely any effort at all. Magazine ad space is sold on the strength of its cover, so it's no surprise that editors work so hard to create visuals that are so compelling and arresting. It's simple, but effective.



Cover Wars: Anouck Lepere by Satoshi Saikusa for S Moda

Anouck Lepere by Satoshi Saikusa

Another awesome cover. I recently went on a floor tour of the Teen Vogue offices, and a big part of each issue's cover is deciding on the colour scheme. I think the colours for this cover work really well. Nothing competes too heavily and it all complements each other. It's visually pleasing.


Cover Wars: Melissa Tammerijn by Txema Yeste for Tush #27

I love etheral covers like this. Commercial fashion rags are always so aggressive, so it's a nice change when covers are a little more mellowed out.


Cover Wars: Josefien Rodermans by Nick Dorey & Jessica Miller by Amy Troost for Russh #45 April/May 2012

Which RUSSH cover do you prefer this month?
I'm partial to the Josefien Rodermans cover myself.

Ah, Número. Never disappoints.
