For Fall, Giorgio Armani channeled film noir for his Emporio Armani collection. For the accompanying campaign, Armani and his lensman, Mario Sorrenti, mined the same vein—this time mixed with the urban sensibility that underscores the Emporio label. Iselin Steiro and Simon Nessman star in the print spots, as well as Sorrenti’s murky, atmospheric new video, debuting exclusively here on Style.com. The print ads have already begun to appear in July glossies; check out the video above, and keep reading to go behind the scenes with Sorrenti, Steiro, and Nessman on set.

As if it wasn’t enough to design women’s, men’s, and couture, not to mention land one of the biggest Oscars gets of them all in Cate Blanchett, not to mention maintaining the front-runner position in the who-will-replace-Galliano-at-Dior guessing game, Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci has revealed exclusively to Style.com that he’s collaborated with Visionaire on its 60th issue. The topic? Only Tisci’s favorite, of course: religion. The designer curated the entire issue, and all of the work was specially commissioned for the project with the exception of two photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe. Tisci’s one stipulation to his collaborators: no Givenchy credits. Among the contributions, Karl Lagerfeld photographed Carine Roitfeld, Paolo Canevari envisioned Franca Sozzani as a saint, and Givaudan perfumer Yann Vasnier created a Religion scent. Tisci’s proudest achievements: convincing Helmut Lang to participate—”he’s my god,” says the designer—and working on a project with the performance artist Marina Abramović, whom he calls his mother. “Any religion, it’s like a family,” he said. And he means it. The limited-edition issue is a leather-wrapped 228-page hardbound book complete with a case inspired by a church altarpiece. It will be released in June and retail for $425 at select bookstores worldwide and at Givenchy flagship stores. Continue Reading “Exclusive: Visionaire 60 By Riccardo Tisci” »
Paris Vogue‘s annual calendar is always a hot-ticket item—and this year, the emphasis is squarely on hot. Daria Werbowy (left) covers the new edition, which comes packaged with the Tom Ford-edited December issue of the mag, wearing little more than Louis Vuitton jewels. Anastasia Barbieri styled the calendar shoot, with Mikael Jansson behind the lens. (Curious? The full, NSFW version is after the jump.)[@VogueParisLive]
Speaking of underdressed supermodels, Kate Moss will unveil a portfolio of her favorite shots of herself at Miami’s Art Basel. Topping the list? A nude shot from a 1993 black-and-white series by Moss’ then-boyfriend, Mario Sorrenti. [Vogue U.K.]

One day, every “Teenage Dream” will end. That’s why Katy Perry is wearing her trademark latex dresses while she can—”They have an expiration date and that’s why I’m wearing them now at 25,” the singer said. [NYDN]
And Twitter will be a few celebrities down on Wednesday.

Repetition we can get behind: another day, another Haiti fundraiser. This latest push for relief comes by way of ROSE Charities and FOTORELIEF, which have partnered to organize A Picture Saves a Thousand Lives. The short of it: Round up a few of the best photographers in the world, many of them longtime fashion veterans; auction off 130 prints by the masters; send the cash to Haiti. Of course, with the likes of Patrick Demarchelier, Bruce Weber, Mario Sorrenti, Sante D’Orazio, and Greg Kadel involved, the bidding’s bound to be fierce. “Everything’s been donated, down to the frames. People have really come out for this,” ROSE president (and former model) Noot Seear says of the impressive roster, curated by FOTORELIEF director John Gettings. “It’s really the best of each photographer, pieces that represent them. We really wanted art pieces, things you want to hang on the wall.” Given the participants and their penchant for stylish nudity, you may want to make that a high wall—nursery art this isn’t. But with pieces like D’Orazio’s (above, bids start at $750), grown-up glossy obsessives (or prurient bachelors) should find plenty to love.
A Picture Saves a Thousand Lives auction will be held tomorrow from 7 to 10 p.m. at Milk Gallery, 450 W. 15th Street, NYC. Suggested donation is $25. For more information, visit www.fotorelief.org.
