Stunning cover all round: Naomi, the background and the dress - all perfection!
Fashion: Don’t you recognize me? Death: You should know that I don’t see very well and I can’t wear glasses. Fashion: I’m Fashion, your sister. Death: My sister? Fashion: Yes. You and I together keep undoing and changing things down here on earth although you go about it in one way and I another. Giacomo Leopardi, “Dialogue Between Fashion and Death.”abridged
Vogue Australia February 2013 review:
From playing a perky Hollywood wannabe back in 2001 to the most talked-about woman in the world in her upcoming film Diana, Naomi Watts is up for the challenge.
M. Naomi Watts
Ph. Will Davidson
F'Ed. Stevie Dance
Hair. Oscar Blandi
Make-up. May Wiles
Manicure. Bernadette Thompson
(Cover shoot, main editorial/article - a beautifully shot soft feminine editorial with lots of floral motifs; Naomi looks really serene, and her face is glowing with delicate make-up.)
Elegance is redefined with corsets and capes, two of the new season's most talked-about pieces.
M. Elza Luijendijk/IMG
Ph. Victor Demarchelier
F'Ed. Katie Mossman
Hair. Didier Malige
Make-up. Maki Ryoke
Manicure. Rica Romain
(Editorial - Elza looks so stoic and elegance modelling the newest looks of the season; great facial expressions also.)
Black and white sizzles on the South Beach strip as body-defining shapes take on star quality.
M. Cameron Russell/Elite Model Management
Ph. Benny Horne
F'Ed. Morgan Pilcher
Hair. Shin Arima
Make-up. Tyron Machhausen
(Shot in South Beach, Miami, the shoot reminds me of old-school 90s editorials. Cameron looks beautiful.)
The new season's take on the 60s isn't so much swinging as razor sharp, more Warhol's factory than Carnaby Street, but the youthquake factor is still high. It's a brave new graphic world.
M. Ruby Jean Wilson/Ford Models
Ph. Derek Henderson
F'Ed. Michelle Cameron
Hair. Gavin Harwin
Make-up. Valery Gherman
(Editorial/article -Ruby channels Edie Sedgwick on the streets of New York pieces in pieces referencing the 60s.)
An Open Dior
The relationship between Monsieur Christian Dior and Australia during the 1940s. Includes images of Kate Moss' December editorial wearing Dior couture in Vogue Spain, lensed by Mario Testino
Kiera Knightley feature.
You're welcome ChristyLeReveur. I must say I am really enjoying Vogue Australia under Edwina's editorship. Everything from the design of the magazine to the quality of editorials is much slicker and sophisticated. I'm afraid to say that it may have been the right choice for Clements' to go because the magazine did need to be refreshed with a different perspective.
