Spring is usually the season for long white dresses. So why all the ivory gowns on the Fall runways? We’re chalking it up to royal wedding fever. It’s just over two weeks until Kate Middleton walks down the aisle, and while it isn’t likely that Prince William’s betrothed will do it in any of these dresses (she seems poised to follow in time-honored royal footsteps and choose something more conservative), there are other high-profile, fashion-loving brides tying the knot later this year. Kate Moss and Lily Aldridge are marrying their musician boyfriends Jamie Hince and Caleb Followill, respectively, and we could see those catwalkers rocking one of these frocks. You? Click for a slideshow and let us know.

For its guerrilla campaign, which hit the streets of New York—following a very brief snowstorm delay—this week, Rag & Bone put cameras into the hands of some of its favorite models and told them to have a ball. Edita Vilkeviciute and Sasha Pivovarova took to the beach, Abbey Lee Kershaw to the shower, Lily Aldridge to the tequila shot—suffice it to say, a good time was had by all. When we helped break the news of the project, we ran a little teaser video to whet your models-in-hot-weather appetite. Now check out the exclusive debut of the full video below, shot by the models and their friends on location. Should more snow be on the forecast for this weekend, you can at least imagine a sunnier (and more Sasha and Edita-filled) clime. The DIY project gets its own Web site this February 7 at www.rag-bone.com.
Edita Vilkeviciute, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Sasha Pivovarova, Lily Aldridge. Sounds like the makings of a flashy ad. In fact, all four top models posed for Rag & Bone’s first-ever campaign. The difference is, they took the shots themselves or posed for pals in their living rooms and showers or on vacation. Marcus Wainwright and David Neville dreamed up the D.I.Y. project with Laird & Partners, and New Yorkers who braved the snow banks this morning might have seen the wild postings around town. When Marcus and David say D.I.Y., they mean it: The designers themselves took wheat paste to poster. On top of that, some of the ads look a lot like the flyers cleaning ladies, dog walkers, and the guitar teacher Dan Smith post with their contact numbers on the bottom, only these list the Rag & Bone Web site. Online, you’ll find more pictures of the models along with bonus material like their playlists and recipes. “They were all given the same remit, but they all turned out so different,” says Wainwright. “We think they’re really representative of each girl’s character.” And that works for the brand. “Putting clothes together in your own way, having your own style—that’s something that resonates with us,” he adds. Later this year, customers will be able to post pictures of themselves wearing Rag & Bone to the Web site. Check out a teaser video about the project and more exclusive shots direct from the girls’ digi-cams, below. Continue Reading “Edita, Abbey, Sasha, And Lily Take It To The Streets” »
We Work and Corduroy magazine are throwing down at Milk Studios tonight, celebrating the pub’s Spring/Summer issue with an all-star jam session and a silent auction of photographs that will benefit women’s microfinance organization Kiva. Leigh Lezark (above), is one of many women lensed for the sale by a photographer pal (in her case, Dan Martensen). Check out more exclusive preview images of Irina Lazareanu by Alexandra Carr (slightly NSFW), Lily Aldridge by Johnny Giunta, and Paz de la Huerta by Richard Kern, below.
