Girls. Or at least that’s what Forbes‘ latest report suggests…about the modeling world. While 2013′s top-earning female super—Gisele Bündchen (who else?)—raked in a cool $42 million between September 2012 and September 2013, the world’s most money-making male model, Sean O’Pry (of Versace, H&M, Kenzo, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Spicebomb campaign fame) made only $1.5M in the same timeframe. Not that we’re terribly surprised—Beyoncé’s rarely wrong.
Leave it to Kenzo designers and Opening Ceremony founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim to host a full-on Fourth of July BBQ a Paris. On Thursday, the pair invited guests such as André Saraiva, Rose McGowan, Sarah Andelman, Ellen von Unwerth, and Léa Seydoux to the Jardin d’Acclimatation, where they got their fix of hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, and nineties jams. The occasion (other than an Independence Day celebration for the visiting Américains) was the unveiling of Kenzo’s Fall ’13 campaign. This season, the designers teamed up with Toilet Paper magazine founders (and the evening’s cohosts) Maurizio Cattelan, Pierpaolo Ferrari, and Micol Talso, to create their imagery. The surreal ads (below) star Leon and Lim pals Rinko Kikuchi and Sean O’Pry, who pose among a cast of giant insects, gangs of mice, bananas, kittens hiding in boots, the Fall collection’s eye motif, and Cattelan’s favorite—the tiger dog.
Cattelan—an OC devotee—reported that he was pleasantly surprised when Leon and Lim called to collaborate, and described the shoot as a “creative laboratory.” In addition to appearing in Fall glossies, the ads will be featured in Kenzine—a limited-edition Toilet Paper-esque magazine—as well as on a capsule collection of sweatshirts and T-shirts, which will hit stores this September.
Our mail guy, Wayne, keeps busy. PRs and labels send Style.com a ton of books, samples, lookbooks, slightly smushed cupcakes, DVDs, and assorted fashion miscellany each and every day. We don’t report on it all—but we’ll be making an effort to call out some of the best and oddest in a new series.
What’s black and white and pink all over? Today’s mailbag haul. Bobbi Brown’s hot pink skateboard, a promo prop for her new Pretty Powerful book, arrived with the promise of a free lesson with pro Eli Reed in Tompkins Square Park courtesy of The Cools. The indoor kids among us got a week’s worth of reading material: The world’s top male model, Sean O’Pry, covers the launch issue of the new men’s magazine Man of the World ($16, manoftheworld.com), while his female counterpart, the star of Kate, arrived in hardback ($85, rizzoliusa.com).
Animal prints have become so popular that department store racks are starting to resemble petting zoos. Lately, though, we’ve been noticing a new novelty trend: faces. Some designers have taken visages in cartoony directions. Sophia Kokosalaki put a pop art depiction of a girl in tears on the Diesel Black Gold runway back in February, while Mugler‘s Nicola Formichetti and Sébastien Peigné collaborated with illustrator Mel Odom on the kissing image in their new Resort collection. Others spotlighted more familiar faces. Marc Jacobs commissioned his pal Elizabeth Peyton to immortalize him on a collector’s item sweatshirt for his Marc by Marc line. Rihanna paid tribute to Elizabeth Taylor by wearing a Topshop Unique look, and model Sean O’Pry, perhaps looking for a job, wore a T-shirt with the photographer David Sims on it while off-duty at the menswear collections.
