Two of fashion’s favorite image makers, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, have always been different from most photographers in their approach to models: “They’re people!” van Lamsweerde told Style.com in an interview about their recent tome, Pretty Much Everything. “It’s an exchange of inspiration, of trust. You spend a day together and definitely anyone that poses for anyone is in a very vulnerable position. It’s not nothing to let yourself be photographed,” she explained. Some of their most trusting subjects are fashion’s biggest names: Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Raquel Zimmermann, and Shalom Harlow. And though the duo generally keeps its lens focused on famous faces of that caliber these days, they have recently found inspiration in a new, unknown face—meet 19-year-old French model LouLou (no last name).
“We saw LouLou on the cover of Treats! magazine and flew her over from Paris (where she studies) to New York to meet us,” the duo, who photographed her for the upcoming Sports Issue of V Magazine, tells Style.com. “Her face resembles a young Penélope Cruz and her body is like that of Kate Moss. Our work is so much about the girl in the clothes and she provides us with so many new inspirations.”
For the editorial, they shot their latest muse (styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele) in a studio and then had their technician drop the images into some of their most iconic images. Before V76 hits newsstands next month, Style.com has the exclusive first look at some of the photos, here. As for LouLou, look out for her in more I&V work soon: “We are shooting her for Bulgari at the moment, and next week we will post a new series with her on our site, InezandVinoodh.com.”
Donna Karan celebrated her recently inked Yankees sponsorship deal with a visit to the stadium for a game on Friday. Hey, there are stranger places to pick up design tips. [WWD]
Vicky Cristina Carine Barcelona? Penélope Cruz is the latest to take the reins at Paris Vogue, guest-editing the May issue, which focuses on Cannes. The cover star? Cruz, of course. [WWD]
Boom Boom Room—or whatever we’re supposed to be calling it at the moment—has received a cabaret license. So much for all those quiet nights there. [Hint Mag]
Rumors are flying that Giles Deacon will be the next designer tapped to helm the troubled house of Ungaro. Our only request: no more pasties, please. [Vogue U.K.]
The feel-good read of the weekend: The New York story of Eddie Feibusch, proprietor of the city’s oldest zippers shop (it opened in 1941). Since then, he’s supplied zippers to just about everyone, including, uh, Bernie Madoff. (A little less feel-good, admittedly.) [NYT]
Here at Style.com, there are few things we like more come awards season than a game of “Which Designer Will They Wear?” Some actresses make it relatively easy—can you remember the last time Renée Zellweger hit the red carpet in anything but Carolina Herrera? Others, like Penélope Cruz and Chloë Sevigny, keep us guessing. With the 67th Annual Golden Globes coming up this weekend, followed by the SAGs, the Grammys, and the BAFTAs and culminating with the Oscars on March 7, we’ve pulled our favorite dresses from the recent collections and assigned them to Hollywood’s biggest stars. We’ll have to wait till Sunday to see which of them are thinking along the same lines.

Nicole Kidman, Penélope Cruz, Julianna Margulies, Lucy Liu. L’Wren Scott has been on a roll lately, and tonight, at the world premiere of Sherlock Holmes in London, she scored another coup. We love Heather Graham in Scott’s body-hugging ivory polka-dot and lace minidress. As for the button-up booties? In our view, they add an edge we don’t usually associate with Rollergirl, but we’re guessing they’ll divide opinion. Where do you stand on the look?
Tilda Swinton + Ryan McGinley + Pringle of Scotland = Most unexpected campaign collaboration ever. Since McGinley basically only shoots models without their tops on, the chance of Swinton showing some skin, while unlikely, is not improbable. [Vogue U.K.]
France’s trouble with jewelry heists shows no signs of abating. Yesterday, three men in Hawaiian shirts hit up the Cartier outpost in Cannes, absconding with upward of $9.2 million in gems and doing a great disservice to well-dressed thieves everywhere. [The Telegraph]
Very little evidence suggests that Penélope Cruz is actually pregnant, but Page Six is suggesting it anyway. Of course, at the thought of a Cruz-Bardem baby, we’d be hopefully conjecturing, too. [Page Six]
David Beckham ends rumors that he and Angelina Jolie will star in the Sexiest Underwear Ad of All Time for Giorgio Armani. “At the end of the day, I wouldn’t do it because I’m married,” the loyal husband told reporters. Translation: Victoria said no. [Times U.K.]
