From now until February 2, New York-based artist Max Snow’s latest photography project, The Lady of Shalott (named for Alfred Tennyson’s poem) will be on view at Paris concept shop Colette. Featuring eerie black-and-white images of nude women hiding under sheer veils, their faces often obscured with white, the exhibition includes shots of such fashion stars as Rebecca Dayan and Arizona Muse. Not surprising, considering the artist’s wife is stylist Vanessa Traina—who, it should be noted, was also photographed for the show. Decidedly (and, perhaps, deliberately) more covered up than the rest of Snow’s subjects, Traina was shot wearing the custom Givenchy gown she donned for their wedding last August.
The Lady of Shalott runs through February 2nd at Colette, 213 Rue Saint-Honoré, Paris.
Diane von Furstenberg’s Spring Surrealist-inspired ad campaign featured a mirror over the model’s face to show that anyone can be the DVF woman. This season, that woman is Arizona Muse. For the new Fall ad campaign, photographer Camilla Akrans photographed the model standing on a large DVF logo fixture and holding up the designer’s bags. Here, Muse holds up a signature DVF clutch and she’s giving lip to match the pout motif.
After featuring actresses including Clémence Poésy, Gemma Arterton, and Liv Tyler in past campaigns, G-Star went in a different direction and selected model-of-the-moment Arizona Muse as its face for Fall. And while Muse may not have as much movie star cred as the other girls, she’s definitely a leading lady in the fashion industry, having starred in recent ads for Isabel Marant and Louis Vuitton, among others, not to mention the dozens of editorials and covers she’s scored since her breakthrough Spring ’11 runway season. “She has become her name, being today’s muse of fashion,” said G-Star’s global brand director, Shubhankar Ray. Muse appears alongside actor Caleb Landry Jones in the new campaign, lensed by famed music video and film director Anton Corbijn (he’s been collaborating with G-Star the past several seasons). The shoot took place in the French Alps at an altitude of nearly 10,000 feet, but Muse, wearing a head-to-toe raw denim outfit, proved that no mountain is too high for her. “I really loved shooting with Anton. He was really personable and easy to work with,” Muse told Style.com. “G-Star chooses people who I admire and it’s amazing that I’m now in that group of people—including Liv Tyler, who I love.” Here, Style.com has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the campaign shoot.
Industry legend Michel Gaubert is one of the go-to DJs for the fashion set, spinning tunes for Chanel, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Gucci, and more. (He counted down his Top 10 runway soundtracks of the decade 2001-2011 here.) He was in the booth for Chanel’s Paris/Bombay Métiers d’Art show, and in between spinning tunes—including George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord,” John Lennon’s “Instant Karma!,” and David Lynch’s “Good Day Today” (Chanel shared his full playlist here)—he managed to record the show from his DJ’s-eye-view. Gaubert shared the video, below, and a few choice pics with Hintmag.
If there’s one thing a top model knows, it’s how to work it in front of the camera—and so for its guerrilla ad campaigns, Rag & Bone has made a specialty of handing the girls the reins and getting out of the way. For the first round of the D.I.Y. Project, as Rag & Bone’s David Neville and Marcus Wainwright called the project, the designers had Lily Aldridge, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Sasha Pivovarova, and Edita Vilkeviciute snap themselves wherever the mood struck—on the beach, in the shower, over tequila shots. “The first time around we didn’t really know what we were going to get, but we ended up with truly compelling photographs from each girl; all very raw, beautiful, and at the same time quite distinct from one another,” Neville said. “The essence of the project is really flipping the traditional photo shoot on its head. We have turned the creative control over to the models and allowed them the freedom to capture themselves as they see fit. That is the glory of the whole thing; we get to see a very specific point of view, exactly how they wanted to be reflected in the images.”
The next round, debuting September 6, brings a new group of models into the fold. Miranda Kerr, Karolina Kurkova, Carolyn Murphy, Arizona Muse, Joan Smalls, and Candice Swanepoel are in front of the lens for the Rag & Bone/JEAN collection. Fellow supe Helena Christensen shot Kurkova (above) for the project in the fishing village of Ischia, Italy, where the two were for the Ischia Film and Music Festival. “It was a magical time,” Kurkova told Style.com. “We watched films on an outdoor movie screen just off the sea at night and during the day went sailing, kayaking, swimming in the ocean with my family. It was a perfect place to shoot as it’s a fishing village with lots of charm, character, beautiful views, and salt-of-the-earth people.”
