Veronika Vilim-a fashion editorial by photographer Julien Bernard

“For me, there is very little difference between magic and art. To me, the ultimate act of magic is to create something from nothing: It’s like when the stage magician pulls the rabbit from the hat.” — Alan Moore —  A fashion editorial by Paris-based photographer Julien Bernard, stylist Eve Sebagh, Makeup Ismael Blanco @ Agence Aurelien, Hair Anais Lucas for Leonor Greyl, Model Veronika Vilim @ Supreme pants Faith Connexion, tee-shirt SAINT LAURENT, waistcoat HARLEY DAVIDSON vest CLASH LE PERFECTO, dress ETAM dress FAITH CONNEXION, boots SAINT LAURENT kimono TOPSHOP, crop top AMERICAN APPAREL dress SAINT LAURENT, shoes VINTAGE dress DIOR VINTAGE dress DOLCE & GABANNA shirt & underwear FAITH CONNEXION

Why Are You Looking at Me: Lucky Blue Smith in the Age of Instagram Celebrity

Three blond sisters. All homeschooled, all Morman, and all playing washed out surf rock together in the same band, The Atomics. Yet it’s the drummer, their brother Lucky, who has drawn the legions of fans; and although the band’s music has a snare-driven hypnotic quality meriting attention in its own right, it is Lucky’s celebrity as a model that has propelled the group into the public eye. At only sixteen, Lucky Blue Smith has walked for brands like Levi’s, Versace and Tom Ford and has his sights set on that elusive model/actor/musician combination best exemplified by the likes of Justin Bieber. Similar to Bieber, Lucky’s rise to fame has been with the help of legions of teenage girls, through the channels that celebrity 2.0 knows best; Instagram (1.4 million followers) and the flash-mob meet-and-greets that allow the young fans of young social media heartthrobs to meet their idols face-to-face. Unlike Bieber, the Smith family’s unusual background and modest lifestyle maintains an indie credibility that makes Lucky a rare specimen in the often homogeneous flow of internet celebrity: a weirdo …

If I were a child by photographer Jen Senn

“I feel sometimes as if I were a child who opens its eyes on the world once and sees amazing things it will never know any names for and then has to close its eyes again. I know this is all mere apparition compared to what awaits us, but it is only lovelier for that…” — Marilynne Robinson, “Gilead” 2004 – (Source) Photographer: Jen Senn, www.jensenn.com  Stylist: Morgan Jordan, www.morganjordan.com/ , Makeup Artist Lisa Thai http://www.lisa-thai.com/   Model Jaq @ Muse  Jumpsuit Current/Elliott, Turtleneck Calvin Klein , Belt stylist’s own Overalls Rag & Bone, Top Elie Tahari, Hoops Ralph Lauren, Slides stylist’s own Top Brochu Walker, Overalls American Apparel Top Elie Tahari, Overalls vintage Gap, Hat and patterned shirt vintage Sweater Brochu Walker, Jeans Levi’s, Hat and undershirt vintage Top Andrew Marc, Pants Current/Elliott Jean jacket Paige, Jumpsuit Bailey44, Top Brochu Walker, Necklace stylist’s own

Landeros New York - Look 3

Soft Men & Strong Women: Landeros New York Smashes Fashion Binaries

NY-based designer Andre Landeros Michel has been making splashes in the fashion world with his innovative and bold genderless designs. Landeros comes from a background designing men’s clothing, playing with dissolving lines, blending stark, streamlined architectural menswear with luxurious embellishments, like blue fox fur and immaculately crafted luxe fabrics. For his newest collection, Versions II, Landeros has taken steps into even more androgynous terrain, expanding his roots in menswear to create something truly gender-neutral. His work functions as a political statement, due to a life as a New Wave outsider in Long Island. All misfits and outcasts were thrown together – punks, goths, and new wavers, co-mingling in the early ‘90s club kid scene. Under this scene, Landeros would explore his own glammy androgyny, blending post-punk austerity with a sense of elegance and royalty. “Designing for a specific gender to me felt a bit antiquated especially given my penchant for blurring the lines between the two. I’ve never differentiated before, so why start now?” as he told the Huffington Post. New ideas of gender and what those mean …

LADYFAG, NEW YORK’S NOCTURNAL GODDESS

The statuesque gender-bending Madame of the New York night scene, Ladyfag, arrived eight years ago, first selling vintage wares and later becoming mesmerized by the allure of the city after dark. Photographed by Anna Bloda, Make up Azra Red. The statuesque gender-bending Madame of the New York night scene arrived eight years ago, first selling vintage wares and later becoming mesmerized by the allure of the city after dark. In the beginning, Ladyfag ventured out solo, enrobed in a myriad of her own looks from Transylvanian embroidered robes to Ricardo Tisci’s Givenchy later on. She danced with arms flung in the air, her shaggy armpits laid bare. The night became her playground as she headed out to iconic venues like Hiro, APT and Happy Valley. It was on one of those fateful nights that NYC nightlife and legendary club kid, Kenny Kenny found her at the center of the dance floor. He hired her on the spot to dance for him at Happy Valley (thrown by him and Susanne Bartsch.) “Both of us are self-created …
