Frida Gustavsson's Backstage Sketches

What a pleasant surprise! Swedish sensation Frida Gustavsson sketched what it’s like backstage at a show and my favourite snapper Sonny Vandevelde took these photos using his phone cam.

Backstage at Versace Fall Winter 2011: Lindsey Wixson

Backstage at Versace Fall Winter 2011: Lindsey Wixson

Lovely chatting to Lindsey Wixson backstage at Versace. She's one of my favourite models of the moment. She's major!

Versace gave a few of us bloggers flip cams to take footage at the show. I was the only blogger backstage. I almost got kicked out until one of the Italian PR ladies saved me. In any case, I have tons of clips here. I hope my internet connection cooperates with me.

Who's That Boy at Missoni?

Who's That Boy at Missoni?

I spotted this guy at the recent fall/winter 2011 Missoni menswear show in Milan. I arrived at the show venue early and to pass time, I sat on a bench across him, smoked a ciggie and started snapping.

I'm not really into male models but he's cute alright. Click click click!

Behind-the-Scenes Videos from D&G Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Backstage

Behind-the-Scenes Videos from D&G Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Backstage

I was late coming to the D&G show the other day because I visited the Church's showroom. Instead of sprinting to my seat at D&G, I went straight backstage and stayed there throughout the entire show. I sometimes prefer being backstage because that's where all of the action is.

Very handsome. Very, very, very handsome. Just saying.

From lining up for first looks to the mad rush to change for the finale, it's fascinating to witness and capture all these priceless moments before, during and after the show.

Caroline Ribeiro at Fashion Rio FW2011

Caroline Ribeiro at Fashion Rio FW2011

It was a pleasure meeting Caroline Ribeiro here at Rio de Janeiro. I bumped into her at Fashion Rio a few days ago. She's working with MTV Brazil and they interviewed

I loved Carol's work many years ago. She looked spectacular as Tom Ford's muse at Gucci. She was beautiful then, she's still beautiful now. What a stunning, stunning lady!

Chanel Spring Summer Backstage - Hair, Make-up and Model Overload!

Chanel Spring Summer Backstage - Hair, Make-up and Model Overload!

Here's the scene backstage (hair & make-up) at Chanel spring summer 2011. The majority of the girls had a super straight, super sleek pony tail. As for make-up, a bit of dark eyeshadow and eyeliner to emphasize the eyes, a little bit of blush and nothing else.

Backstage at the D&G spring/summer 2011 show in Milan, I met rising model Jessica Clarke. She's from New Zealand and it's her first time to do the D&G show.

Talbots' Unbelievable Transformation Featuring Linda Evangelista

Talbots' Unbelievable Transformation Featuring Linda Evangelista

Holy shit. I'm at a complete loss of words. I just had to share this with you when I saw this image on my newsfeed. Supermodel (as in the TRUE supermodel) Linda Evangelista (shot by Mert & Marcus) is the star of Talbots ad campaign.

Talbots Linda Evangelista

I'm very, very, very curious how Talbots customers would react to the image change. This is a major and I mean MAJOR overhaul. Talbots is renowned for no nonsense "REAL American" womenswear. We're talking about real real as in real real South Dakota or Wyoming or Idaho or something like that.

Can you imagine? This is probably the equivalent of snatching away a Midwesterner fashionista's People Stylewatch and shoving an issue of Vogue Paris down her throat instead.

Click click click to see what I mean about Talbots' stellar transformation!

Kate Moss for British Vogue - September 2010 Cover

Kate Moss for British Vogue - September 2010 Cover

This, my dearest friends, is Kate Moss' 30th cover for British Vogue.

Kate Moss for September 2010 British Vogue

It's her sixth September cover.

Previously, Kate's been on the September 2000, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2009 issues of the magazine.

I think we all agree that she's a fashion icon through and through.

I love British Vogue and I know Kate's powerful prowess sells issues but come on...

I'm gonna be honest here. I look at that cover and there's no WOW factor. No element of surprise. It doesn't even spark my curiosity. In other words, it's the same old, same old, same old, same old... multiplied by a factor of thirty.

Yes, we'll most likely buy the magazine not because we see something exciting but because it's British Vogue and you have to get it to be informed.

I just think it's sad that we have to look elsewhere to get what we want from the magazines that we love...

Sometimes I wonder what the magazine industry would be like if everyone in present-day fashion publishing just vanished into thin air (all of them, the whole lot of them from top to bottom) and our favourite glossies got a clean slate...

With that being said, who wants to bet that Kate will be on the cover again on September 2011, September 2012, September 2014 and maybe September 2016?

Lunch With Linus Gustin [i heart male models]

Lunch With Linus Gustin

Back in Paris, me and my pals Sonny and Isaac thought it was a good idea to have (very) late lunch before the spectacular Damir Doma show. A few minutes after my order arrived, male model Linus Gustin rolled up  beside me. He was on his way to the show venue but he was starving. He asked us how long it took for our food to arrive and I told him it wasn't very long so he joined our table. I thought I was gonna die -- hello, how often do you have lunch with male models? I'm talking about real, working models not "models". Anyway, I found out he's Swedish. Y'all know how I go weak in the knees when it comes to Swedish guys. There I was, in Paris, having a beautiful meal with friends, enjoying a nice glass of rose and I've got some eye candy beside me. It was icing on the cake!

Prada Menswear Backstage Spring Summer 2011

Prada Menswear Backstage Spring Summer 2011

While the rest of the fashion pack went to Moncler, I went to the Prada venue an hour before the indicated show time. I was early so I walked to a nearby cafe for a snack. When I walked in, two editors from a Chinese magazine recognized me and we had a quick chat. They wanted to take photos backstage. They invited me to join them but I didn't have a backstage pass.

I decided to join them anyway. What the heck. I don't normally sneak in, in fact, I don't go anywhere unless I'm invited but Prada is Prada. It's one of the biggest shows in Milan.

Jamie Bochert at Haider Ackermann SS2011 Show Finale

Jamie Bochert at Haider Ackermann SS2011 Show Finale

The super talented (and, I must add, frighteningly thinner than usual) Jamie Bochert opened and serenaded the audience throughout Haider Ackermann's spring/summer 2011 show here in Florence.

It's almost 4AM so I'm gonna post the photos later. I have to say the palazzo has got to be one of the most glamorous and beautiful show venues I've been in my entire life.

Reeeeaaaallly now, L'Oreal?

Reeeeaaaallly now, L'Oreal?

I remember this stunning image of the thinspirational Olga Sherer from the November 2007 (Vogue Montres) issue of Vogue Paris.

Olga Sherer, Vogue Montres/Vogue Paris November 2007

Fast forward to the February 2010 issue of Vogue Italia comes an ad from L'Oreal.

L'Oreal INOA ad campaign

Everything's photoshopped these days anyway so the question is, do you think it's Olga Sherer on that image, photoshopped to make her a wee bit plumper or no? What say you?

Just wondering...

American Vogue November 1988 - Micaela Bercu

American Vogue November 1988

Speaking of number one, behold my latest acquisition: the November 1988 issue of American Vogue.

US Vogue November 1988 cover featuring Micaela Bercu

This is Anna Wintour's first issue as Editor-in-Chief of Vogue USA after replacing Grace Mirabella.

Micaela Bercu, in a Christian Lacroix haute couture jacket, was photographed by Peter Lindbergh who, as reported last month, is returning to the magazine after an eighteen-year hiatus. It's also the first time jeans appeared on the cover of the magazine.

I bought this (for $75 shipping included) on eBay after a crazy bidding war. I wasn't gonna let it go.

Trust me, every penny I've spent is worth this amazing piece of history.

Lara Stone and David Walliams ENGAGED!

Lara Stone and David Walliams ENGAGED!

Dutch model sensation Lara Stone and David Walliams of Little Britain are engaged. Yes, Lara Stone is getting married!

Engaged: Lara Stone and David Walliams (Little Britain) photo

Lara Stone somewhat reminds me of the iconic Kate Moss... always photographed with a drink or a ciggie.

They both broke the modeling molds during their time -- Kate was credited for bringing in "heroin chic" because of her slender and petite frame and then you have the ferocious and busty Lara, a standout amongst the sea of overstarved, Eastern bloc skeletors.

I love this sort of news. Seriously.

When you think about it, models become even BIGGER entities than they are if they venture outside the fashion 'box'. In order to become a supermodel/household name, you need to date a famous man who is always on the spotlight -- an actor, a musician, a sports figure, whatever. Look at most of the supermos -- Naomi, Kate, etc. 

Do you guys get my drift?

Go Lara!
