    I'd be happy to judge the contest. Once the deadline is up, I'll compile a list of everyone's entries, voting will begin, members can send me PMs, and I'll announce the winner. Nothing different than before, I suppose.

    Unless others have suggestions for an alternative way of judging/voting?

    No, that sounds a good idea, just like the Vogue Cover Challenge, i think a week would be a fair deadline.

    Entry #1

    From The Ashes Comes New Life

    Designer: Alexander McQueen
    Ph: Steven Klein
    Styling: Panos Yiapanis

    Model: Kristen McMenamy
    [​IMG]

    Makeup: Pat McGrath Hair: Guido
    [​IMG]
    Hair and makeup takes it's cues from various places, but is mainly dark. It does lighten up in the 'happier' parts of the story.

    Setting: Various parts of an unnamed cemetery
    Magazine: Vogue Italia

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Look #1
    Just an intro to the shoot. The shade from the big tree leaves only a sliver of light on her face. Image is shot waist up.
    [​IMG]

    Look #2
    It's all turning dark, both the day, and in the feel of things. Kristen has her arm wrapped around the angel and is looking up to her face and praying for things to turn around.
    [​IMG]

    Look #3
    The situation hasn't been getting better so she's ready to fight. She's perched atop the grave stones waiting for the worst. The wind is blowing and the cape is flying.
    [​IMG]

    Look #4
    The situation is deteriorating and the image is of her tied up the the cross, with fire all around her (not candles).
    [​IMG]

    Look #5
    B&W shot. Almost all hope is lost. She's clinging to the headstone and the under wire of the dress is broken.
    [​IMG]

    Look #6
    All hope is lost. She is sitting in the grass weeping. The light across her face only.
    [​IMG]

    Look #7
    She is almost in denial, she wont accept the fate that lays ahead. She is prying at the helmet's rungs.
    [​IMG]

    Look #8
    She's tired and lays down in the grass for an eternal sleep. Grass and vines cover her body. She is dirty.
    [​IMG]

    Look #9
    B&W shot. She reincarnates as a ghost. She's coming out of the mausoleum and there are a lot of gauzy bandage strips as well as the dress.
    [​IMG]

    Look #10
    B&W shot. She is inside the cemetery's gates, but is unable to get out. She's screaming, but nothing comes out.
    [​IMG]

    Look #11
    B&W shot. She's still a ghost. It's snowing out and she is wandering aimlessly.
    [​IMG]

    Look #12
    It's spring time, and miraculously she wakes up. She's still dead, but doesn't realize it. She's laying in the grass, surrounded by flowers, still dirty.
    [​IMG]

    Look #13
    She is standing atop a mound of skulls, her dress is blowing around wildly. She has a false sense of happiness and is not actually victorious.
    [​IMG]

    Sorry for my late entry... better late than never.

    Designer: Lanvin

    (I wanted to show the 'different' less cliche image of Lanvin, dark and quite masculine, set in a smoking/gentlemen's club, the girls sat around drinking whisky and smoking provocatively, a one page feature, with the idea of the 5th look emulating Alber, as if he were in the picture)

    Title: Guys and Dolls

    Magazine: Vogue Paris

    Photographer: Steven Klein

    Set: (The best kind of example i could find, although its a tom ford store)

    Paolosavi.com

    Hair and Make up: Guido Palau and Pat McGrath
    [​IMG]

    Models: Kasia Struss, Natasha Poly, Anja Rubik, Snejana Onopka and Anna Selezneva

    I was going to edit my post but I was too late..
    Is it OK to use an item from another designer? I'd only be using a headpiece (for all the girls) from another designer.
