Video: Go behind the scenes at our May 2011 cover shoot with Daria Werbowy!


Check out our exclusive behind the scenes peek at FASHION‘s May issue cover shoot with none other than homegrown supermodel Daria Werbowy! Shot on location in New York earlier this year, the shoot was all about showcasing Daria’s casual and relaxed sense of style and spellbinding beauty.

Powerhouse fashion photogs Inez and Vinoodh speak out on underage models (and Daria poses for YSL)

1 Comment

After an influx of underage models, it’s a refresher to see some older talent in campaigns and editorials. The Fall Louis Vuitton ads feature a trio of supermodels well out of their teens (Natalia Vodianova, 28, Karen Elson, 31, and Christy Turlington, 41), while the 39-year-old Kirsten Owen made a triumphant appearance on the Joe Fresh runway at LG Fashion Week in Toronto.

Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin recently photographed Mississauga’s own Daria Werbowy, who at 26 is hardly geriatric, but certainly not a kid, for Yves Saint Laurent’s fall campaign, which features her elegantly perched at the bottom of a lavish staircase. Looking at the adverts it’s no mystery why the pair now refuse to photograph anyone under the age of 18–a move they made about five years ago. Read more »

Fashion news: Kate Moss is shy, Abbey Lee and Dree Hemingway drown in Chanel bags, and will Uncle Karl be on Gossip Girl?


Karl Lagerfeld has just released another short film featuring Dree Hemmingway and Abbey Lee taking a breather after a Chanel spree, hence the film’s title Shopping Fever. Of course, a Lagerfeld short wouldn’t be a Lagerfeld short without Baptiste Giabiconi smouldering expertly at the camera. [The Cut]

More in Lagerfeld-related news: He was spotted with Blake Lively leaving the Ritz Carlton in Paris, so naturally rumours of the Kaiser appearing on Gossip Girl are now rampant. We hope this is true, but it’s probably not. [Glamour]

Just announced, rom-com queen Kate Hudson will be the new face of Almay. Her role with the fancy title of “global brand ambassador,” will include involvement with charity events and ad campaigns, which hit print and TV later this year.

Marc Jacobs reportedly wore a kilt to jury duty. His beau Lorenzo Martone hates kilts. Trouble in paradise? Probably not. [Gawker] Read more »

Fashion news: Gaga in Prada, snowboarding models and authorities still telling kids to pull up their pants

Yesterday, we reported Lady Gaga‘s odd absence from the red carpet at the Met Gala. While the wires were oddly empty of Gaga in the Prada tux she reportedly wore after changing out of her sparkly catsuit, The Cut recently published a rare shot of Gaga in said tux. With no spikes or sequins or live animals protruding from the outfit, Gaga looks strangely… normal. [The Cut]

Fashion’s Night Out, a shopping celebration organized by Vogue in each of its global cities has expanded from a one night affair into six nights. What was last year referred to as a “drunken chaos,” and saw Barbara Walters singing a duet with Oscar de la Renta, will kick off in France on September 7, end in Greece and Turkey on the 16th, with countries like Britain, Australia, India and Taiwan in between. Sadly, Canada was nowhere to be seen on the bill.  [WWD] Read more »

The Daily Beast compiled a list of the 10 most valuable models. If the suspense is killing you, Gisele is number one, followed by Christy Turlington (7), Kate Moss (2) and the usual suspects. We’d argue that Daria (5) is hardly an “up-and-comer” though, so you can probably take this all with a grain of salt. [Daily Beast]

Karl Lagerfeld is launching a Chanel magazine called 31 Rue Cambon with Purple’s Olivier Zahm heading up art direction. [The Cut]

Daily reads: Erin Wasson’s treehouse, small feet no longer cool, and Coco Rocha, rockstar


mar09readbeyonceThe costumes for Beyoncé’s upcoming tour (designed by Thierry Mugler) look exactly like what you’re imagining–lots of gold, silver and of course that metal glove. [The Cut]

Coco Rocha plays Guitar Hero…or possibly Rock Band. Oh, who are we kidding? It totally doesn’t matter what you call it as long as you watch it. [Oh So Coco, via Fashionista]

Going, going, gone. Size 5 shoes are apparently so démodé. [Glamour]
