Video Loving: Brian Atwood’s Uber Sexy Campaign Featuring Candice Swanepoel

Now if there was ever a fashion film and print campaign that was destined to be banned it is this uber sexy campaign from Brian Atwood and I love it.

Inspired by the allure of sexual submission, fearless beauty, and cinemagraphic voyeurism, this is one sexy campaign featuring supermodel Candice Swanepoel wearing thigh-high boots, animal print stillettos, bondage strapped heels and not much else.

To be honest when I first saw the print campaign and film, both shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, it made me think it was advertising Agent Provocateur or some other lingerie brand as Candice is seen gyrating up and down a wall of TV screens playing porn, or as the release states “reliving the previous night’s fantasy”, and it is hard to focus on the shoes!!!

So what do you think of the fashion film? It is the first film from The Sex Is In The Heel series, I am intrigued to see how anything can follow this in the sexy stakes as it is seriously steamy!!!

Cover Loving: Models Continue To Shine On The September Issues

I love celebrities and I do love seeing celebrities on magazine covers, yep even I have been persuaded to buy a magazine just because my favourite actress is on the cover, but I have to be honest I do love it when models take covers, more so when it is a September issue – as they are the fashion issues of the year.

It seems that this September the supermodels really are taking over and producing some amazing covers. I have already shown you ELLE UK’s gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, well the subscriber cover dropped through my letterbox over the weekend and I am so pleased they showcased her incredible pins!!! Well it seems that more magazines around the world understand the power of a model – Flare, Canada’s biggest fashion magazine has gone for Lindsey Wixson, Vogue UK and Japan both went for Karlie Kloss, Tokyo Numero have the lovely Candice Swanepoel, and Tatler shows that Cindy Crawford can still work it.

One of my favourite covers so far for September has to be Flare’s gold rush with Lindsey Wixson wearing a coat, top and skirt from Prabal Gurung’s autumn/winter 2012 collection, with incredible Laruicci earrings and a super pop of red lippy.

What I love about this cover, other than the obvious – her striking beauty, I still can’t believe that she is only 18-years-old, but that Flare didn’t go for one of the obvious, high-spending advertisers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton or Gucci – it is always refreshing to see, especially with a September issue.

I was expecting a lot from British Vogue, September as they state themselves is ‘Fashion’s Olympic moment’, but for me this vibrant  seventies-inspired look doesn’t quite cut it for me. Shot by Nick Knight, I love the Jonathan Saunders high-waisted gold printed skinny trousers teamed with a clashing printed silk shirt, but I am put off by Karlie’s pose, I am not sure Tara would approve, and I really dislike the orange and pink text – just too much.

I think I am going to have to give it to Vogue Japan, their September issue featuring Karlie in an Yves Saint Laurent chainmail dress is divine. I love the moody feel to this cover, the white background works perfectly with the smoky tones and of course it wouldn’t be Japanese without the text overload. Everything from the styling to the make-up to her pose and the text works on this cover shot by Mikael Jansson.

Special mention has to go to Cindy Crawford, how stunning does she look for Tatler, she really doesn’t age I couldn’t believe that she is 46 – she is giving these younger models a run for their money!!!

Have you been impressed with the September covers so far? Do let me know which ones are your favourites.

Cover Loving: Vogue Italia – Bold and Bright

Vogue Italia - February 2011

I really wish UK and American magazine would take some tips from the Italians on magazine covers – as the February 2011 cover for Vogue Italia is amazing. Definitely the best February cover, the gorgeous Victoria Secret’s model Candice Swanepoel was shot by Steven Meisel, and styled by the amazing Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele.

Wearing a gorgeous orange Blumarine leather jacket from the spring 2011 collection, Candice looks incredible draped in Blumarine gold jewellery. But what makes this cover for me is the vamp hairstyle – super chic and most certainly bold and bright.

Utterly gorgeous!!
