Even though it doesn’t hit newsstands until Thursday, V magazine’s summer issue has already inspired a ruckus—that’s what happens when you put a scantily clad Miley Cyrus on your cover. However, the issue, which is aptly titled “Drawn to Fashion,” boasts more than saucy Mario Testino-lensed snaps of Hannah Montana. Perhaps appealing to our taste for nostalgia, V has revived the craft of fashion illustration, turning out an edition that almost entirely consists of hand-drawn imagery and graphic art. Take, for instance, its “Face of the Future” spread, which, featuring the work of Spanish-born, London-based artist Ricardo Fumanal, debuts exclusively above. The subjects of his six-page story are some of contemporary fashion’s greatest female designers (Miuccia Prada, Rei Kawakubo, Sarah Burton, and Phoebe Philo among them), and their best looks from Fall 2013. Don’t get us wrong, we love the digital world, but now and again it’s nice to revisit the old school.
Art and celebrity, celebrity artists, the art of celebrity—it’s all a big blur. But an intriguing blur, nonetheless. Starting tomorrow, online auction house Paddle8 will play to our fascination with art, celebrity, and everything in between with Somebody, a fame-themed sale. Launching in collaboration with Interview magazine (i.e., the magazine that Andy Warhol—the grandfather of celebrity/art cross-pollination—founded), the auction will offer 40 celeb-centric works by the likes of Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, Richard Prince, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Warhol himself, and more. You can browse the sale, and its famous faces, until it ends on March 27.
Ten-year-old Romeo Beckham (yes, that Beckham) put his good genes to work in his modeling debut, for Burberry’s Testino-lensed Spring ’13 campaign. Watch out, Hudson Kroenig.
This summer’s athletic champions may have left London in August, but the city’s Olympic hangover lives on. Case in point, last night’s 58th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, which, held in association with Burberry, bestowed the Beyond Theatre honor upon Danny Boyle for his eccentric opening ceremony extravaganza. Naturally, anyone who can convince the queen to parachute with James Bond and seamlessly assemble a show with Paul McCartney, somersaulting NHS patients, and an inflatable Lord Voldemort is deserving of recognition. Team Great Britain gold medalist Victoria Pendleton handed the director his award at the Savoy Theatre. But she wasn’t the only one keeping with the theme. Burberry favorite Jourdan Dunn, on hand to celebrate along with BFF Cara Delevingne, Mario Testino, and more, was a vision in (Olympic) gold. And though she’s second place to no one, Dame Judi Dench picked up her Golden Seagull award—for contributions to global theater—in silver.
