Kate Moss for Versace

Kate Moss proves that she's still a top model in the latest Versace campaign, photographed by Mert and Marcus.

With a little help from editing magic, the 38 year-old looks barely recognizable as a high fashion Roman-esque goddess surrounded by barely-clothed gladiator men. The campaign, which showcases the fashion house's Spring/Summer 2013 collection also features Joan Smalls and Daria Werbowy. Check out the rest of the photos after the jump!

Lady Gaga Covers September Vogue

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News,

Lady Gaga on September VogueBehold - the Lady Gaga September Vogue issue!

After bumping shoulders with just about everyone in the fashion industry for several years - above all, with Anna Wintour - the "You and I" singer finally achieved the most coveted cover in the fashion industry. After having covered the fashion bible's March issue of last year, the pop singer has earned her dues.

Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the fuschia/magenta mermaid-style gown looks stunning on the 26 year-old singer; however, her hair seems to be a whole different story...

Jonathan Van Meter pens Gaga's profile (here's to hoping he can explain her newfound friendship with Lindsay Lohan) with additional photos (one after the jump!) by Mert and Marcus. The issue hits newsstands August 21.

Kate Moss, Lea T Round Off Last Love Covers

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News,

Lea T on Love

Riccardo Tisci's former assistant-turned-model Lea T snagged a second of five alternate covers of Love's Androgynous Issue -- the first of which she is photographed kissing Kate Moss -- only this time, she poses solo.

Photographed by Mert and Marcus, Lea's strong -- yet beautiful -- features arrest the viewer, as she stands centered in a vulnerable position. Powerful, no doubt, I wonder if the obnoxious words "This is Hardcore" really needed plastering in the middle of the image.

While many doubted the 28 year-old's place in Tisci's Givenchy ads -- pointing to her transgender story that stole fashion headlines and a revealing Vogue Paris editorial -- I think that this Love cover cements her place in the industry.

Kate's cover, on the other hand, is not so flattering (seen after the jump). While the supermodel's freckles are a plus, the styling efforts failed at making her pass as a guy. Also, someone on the editing team didn't know what to do with the contours and shadows of her chest.

Items Du Jour: Natalie for Dior, Sasha for Miu Miu, Leighton for Missoni

Leighton Meester-- Natalie Portman  is stunning in her Christian Dior ad for the fragrance Miss Dior. Knowing that she's an animal rights activist, I can't help but feel reminded of the "I'd Rather Be Naked" campaign...

-- Sasha Pivovarova returns to Miucci Prada's fashionable arms in her Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2011 ads, shot by Mert and Marcus.

-- Take that, Blake! Not to be outshined by her Gossip Girl co-star's Chanel gig, Leighton Meester strikes a pose for Missoni. When there's a will to do high fashion, there's a way.

-- Lindsey Wixson gets in front of Terry Richardson's lens for Opening Ceremony's Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook. Apparently, Terry can do cute and adorable without being sleazy.

-- Speaking of Richardson, Paris Hilton (remember her?) posted a picture of the two on her Twitter, propagating the news that she's going to be in a Vogue editorial -- Vogue Turkey, that is.

Julianne Moore Replaces Linda Evangelista for Talbots

Actress Julianne Moore has been named as the new face of Talbots. The 49-year-old replaces supermodel Linda Evangelista as the face of the women's clothing brand for their Spring 2011 campaign, starring in an advertising campaign and a catalogue.

"Julianne Moore. I've been dying to say those two words for two months. What I love about Julianne Moore is that she's a natural beauty-she's a true American beauty. She will make our brand feel modern, which is what the 40-ish woman is. She's effortless-an effortless beauty," Talbots chief creative officer Michael Smaldone said at his latest signing.

He also said he hopes Julianne will be less "severe" than Linda, adding, "A lot of women recognized Linda Evangelista as a woman they knew. The reaction was tremendously positive. We wanted it to be dramatic - we wanted it to turn a lot of heads, which it did. We were more severe on purpose . I think Julianne Moore will soften our look."

Julianne has previously modelled for designer Tom Ford and starred in a series of ads for fashion brand Bvlgari, where she posed naked with a handbag and lion cubs, which were banned in Venice, Italy, for being too racy. Linda's Fall/Winter 2010 campaign was used to re-launch the brand. Julianne will shoot the photos for the brand this week with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

Madonna Directs Miu Miu Campaign

Madonna directingMadonna has directed ‘s Fall/Winter 2010 campaign film.

The singer - who has also worked on a clothing line entitled Material Girl with her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes - is said to have gone to the set of the video to meet with photographers Mert Atlas and Marcus Pigott, but ended up directing the shoot instead.

“We were supposed to shoot a video, so said she wanted to direct it. They said she could do it but they weren’t going to pay her and she started laughing. She put on her iPod and taught us moves and we shot the video for two hours,” said model Ginta Lapina.

Ginta, along with fellow models Lindsey Wixson, Daphne Groeneveld and Siri Tollerod, are all seen dancing to heavy base music in front of strobe lights while wearing Miu Miu’s coveted embellished dresses teamed with kitten heels and patent handbags. Check out the video after the jump!

Talbots Hires Linda Evangelista

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News,

Linda EvangelistaFashion giant Talbots names as the face of their newest campaign.

The 44-year-old supermodel has been hired by the 63-year-old clothing company as it undergoes a re-branding. The mother-of-one was photographed last week by top fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for a glossy advertising campaign which will be launched in September.

“She possesses this timeless yet spontaneous glamour that’s irresistible in our minds,” said Talbots chief marketing officer Lori Wagner.

Linda, who fronted last year’s Prada Fall campaign and is the current face of L’Oreal Paris cosmetics, recently admitted she puts her make-up on 10 minutes. The beauty has learnt so many tricks during her 30-year career she only takes a few moments to perfect her appearance.

“I did my own make-up this morning and it takes 10 minutes, tops! My best trick is to do it in natural light. I keep all my make-up on a huge mirrored tray and I just take it to whatever window is looking good that day.”

Demi Moore Denies Photoshop Claims

Demi Moore on the questionable W coverDemi Moore has admitted that she’s become really “skinny” in recent months.

The actress was defending her new body shape after it was claimed it had been airbrushed on the front cover of W magazine to make her appear smaller than she really is.

But the Ghost beauty insists she didn’t receive any digital help and says her hips looked slim, because they are slim.

She wrote on her Twitter, “I don’t have any hips. I love the pic and can only say I wish I had good lighting like that following me around all day. My hips were not touched don’t let these people bulls**t you. I am on the skinny side lately (sic).”

A spokesman for the magazine told Jezebel.com the photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott “did not do anything unusual or out of the ordinary on Demi Moore for the photo on the cover of W. Demi is an extraordinary beautiful woman and we feel our cover reflects that.”
