Tilda Swinton has had a longstanding gig as the face for the Italian fine jewelry label Pomellato, and earlier this month, her latest effort for the brand—the Spring ad campaign—was unveiled. For the shoot, the actress decamped to the Greek island of Serifos with lensman Jeff Burton, who has photographed the likes of Gemma Ward and Natalia Vodianova. Here, Style.com has an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse at Swinton (wearing Pomellato’s latest baubles) and Burton at work. An image from the official ad campaign, below.
“As a model, I used to go to the most exotic locations—in the depths of Kenya, Brazil, and India,” model-turned-photographer Astrid Muñoz told Style.com last night. “When the shoots were finished and everyone went back to their hotels, I stayed behind with my camera and took pictures. Then I built a dark room in my flat and since then, I have been totally taken over by photography.”
At London’s Jaeger-LeCoultre Bond Street boutique last night, a crowd of friends and family, including Clive Owen, Natalia Vodianova, Charlotte and Andrea Dellal, Anouck Lepère, and Poppy Delevingne, came by to take a look at her first London exhibition. The sepia-toned photographs depicted gauchos and horses in the Argentinean outback. That was no coincidence. Munoz’s current partner is Eduardo Novillo Astrada, an Argentinean polo player and ambassador of Jaeger-LeCoultre.
Guests crammed into the tiny shop to celebrate the work, featured in the latest Jaeger Le-Coultre publication, Yearbook Five. “The photographs are absolutely riveting; they capture the vibe of that region so well—she genuinely has an eye,” said Vodianova. But for Muñoz, whose work on the gauchos will be released in a forthcoming book, it is not just Argentina that inspires her: “For me, the more remote a location, the more difficult to get to, the better,” she said, freshly back from the Amazon jungle, where lunch was bugs and crocodiles and where the hotel room was a hammock strung on to a tree. “The most incredible subjects to photograph are in the most inaccessible places. And trust me, I will get to as many as those places as I can.”
The Golden Globe and SAG nominations have been announced, and now, in the spirit of awards season, Modelinia has handed out a few honors of its own to this year’s hottest catwalkers. For its first-ever Style Awards, Modelinia judged models in five categories: Hottest Red Look, Biggest Risk Taker, Best Red Carpet Glam, Best Accessorizer, and Best Model Off-Duty. Model-of-the-moment Karlie Kloss came out on top in the red dress category, beating industry veterans like Gisele Bündchen and Miranda Kerr, for the Jason Wu gown she wore to this year’s CFDA Awards. (Though Kloss’ dress was definitely the biggest standout in the group, it seems like Natalia Vodianova should have at least made the list for the dramatic Valentino dress she wore to her annual Love Ball). In the off-runway category, Joan Smalls beat Kate Moss, which didn’t surprise us: We’re still gushing over Smalls’ denim-on-denim at the Spring shows. But we are curious why some of our favorites, Frida Gustavsson and Caroline Brasch Nielsen, were left off that list altogether. See who made the cut, below. And check Style File next Thursday for our favorite model-off-duty looks of the year.
