The annual Pirelli calendar—famed for showcasing saucy shots of supermodels in the buff—celebrates fifty this year with a megawatt lineup, including Helena Christensen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Alek Wek, Karolina Kurkova, and Isabeli Fontana. But judging by the series of tribute images —reportedly lensed not by the yet-to-be-revealed 2013 calendar photographer, but by Pirelli vets Patrick Demarchelier and Peter Lindbergh to build hype around the half-century milestone—the calendar’s stars are decidedly more dressed up than usual—well, by Pirelli standards, anyway. The catwalkers were snapped in black lingerie, as well as white shirts and their Skivvies. The full calendar, which has, in the past,been shot by the likes of Bruce Weber, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Karl Lagerfeld, and Inez and Vinoodh (just to name a few), will be unveiled thisNovember—no word yet if the final images will be more, ahem, stripped-down.
Every year, the crème de la crème of the film industry get glammed up to hobnob and vamp for the paparazzi at the Cannes Film Festival. While A-listers such as Jessica Chastain, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, and Zoe Saldana have made an impressive showing thus far, they’ve arguably been eclipsed by the contingent of top-tier catwalkers who have flocked to the red carpets en masse. Yesterday, in particular, was a model-watcher’s paradise, with the likes of Joan Smalls, Petra Nemcova, Barbara Palvin, Chanel Iman, Jessica Hart, and Erin Heatherton posing for the cameras like the pros that they are. Milla Jovovich, Liya Kebede, and Doutzen Kroes were snapped multiple times earlier in the week, and Yasmin Warsame and Irina Lazareanu made some memorable cameos, too. Presumably, even more runway regulars will turn up at the amfAR blowout on Thursday—we’ve got it on authority that Liu Wen and Karolina Kurkova are already in town. Sorry, starlets. When it comes to posing and strutting in borrowed gowns, models simply do it best.
Rag & Bone’s Spring ’13 campaign may have featured polished Alasdair McLellan-lensed images of Kate Moss, but that doesn’t mean designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have gone all glossy on us. Today, Rag & Bone revives its DIY Project for the rag & bone/JEAN line. Having originated in 2011, the experimental ads have previously starred the likes of Miranda Kerr, Karolina Kurkova, and Candice Swanepoel (just to name a few), each of whom were given a digital camera, a bag of rag & bone/ JEAN clothes, and free range to shoot and wear whatever they pleased.
“We think [the DIY Project] is a unique way to show the styles of these cool girls, and it also gives people the opportunity to see their respective personalities and experiences,” says Neville. This season, the designers offer a DIY double whammy, having asked both Camille Rowe (above) and Poppy Delevingne (below) to document their rag & bone/JEAN experiences. “I shot my campaign in Mustique, where I was with my boyfriend, sister and friends for New Year’s. I also took some photos in London, which is where my home and heart lie. The final part was taken by my boyfriend in the fields of West Sussex,” said Delevingne. French-born, New York-based Rowe also had her boyfriend snap some images, which show the model in her Soho loft. “I think he’s a pretty talented photographer,” says Wainwright.
