Top Models as Prostitutes

Heyaaaa ❤

Fashion loves anything that straddles the very fine line between what is provocative and what is tasteless, and of course that happens to include the romanticising the blackened underbelly of society.

If you do not believe me, please consider the “heroin chic” phenomenon of the mid-nineties or consider the unsettling existence of a wikiHow article called “How to be Heroin Chic”. So, I guess that fashion had no other option than to think “What’s gritty and ‘underground’ that we can glamourize with models and fancy clothes? Hmmm…. prostitution would be puuuuuurfect!”

Louis Vuitton’s latest short film, in collaboration with Katie Grand of Love magazine features some of the most recent TOP catwalkers Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Saskia de Braw, Isabeli Fontana, Lily McMenamy, Georgia Jagger and Magdelena Frackowiak as Parisian reines de la nuit drifting about the city streets in the brand’s romantic lingerie inspired Fall ’13 collection. Their path eventually elads to the actual show, where they take the runway in the same clothing.

I don’t know what they are trying to say with this vague storyline – clearly they are trying to say something – but the video is pretty, and the music is nice, and hey, prostitutes!

It’s not too explicit, but there are a few boobs, a few arses, so be wary should you work at a church, or something.

Have a Dose of Fashion Porn to Lift Your Spirits!

Hiya Poutlings!

The festive holidays are notoriously stressful because as everyone is scrambling to do 2 weeks worth of work in 5 whole days, plus buy everything they can get their grubby little paws, wrapping it, making it look purdy for your mother-in-law, on whilst deciding what you’re going to do with the family on Christmas day! It’s beyond exhausting!

But fret not, because in the fashion world it’s now spring/summer 2013 as their ad campaigns for that season drop.

Back in the real world, we’re dying of heat exhaustion in the office on my last day of work for 2013!

So, pick your medicine and sit back and unravel those frazzled nerves witha hefty dose of fashion porn!

… dive into the colour saturated sport-fest that is Cara Delvevigne in DKNY SS13.

Or recharge your batteries with some ultra-modern mod Michael Kors.

But my own particular favourite shot-in-the-arm to lift the weight of the past week is Dolce & Gabbana’s SS13 campaign!

Because nothing lifts my spirits than an older Italian man letting it all hang out. (Look again closely, on the right hand side).

or some of my other favourites…

Johnathan Paul Thinks You’re Addicted to Drugs

Contemporary artist Johnathan Paul also know as Desire Obtain Cherish, thinks we’re all a little addicted to fashion’s jagged little pill. Commenting on consumers sudden need for uncontrollable fashion splurges, Johanathan’s work includes a series of large, wall mounted pill sleeves mocked after the branding of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, YSL and Hermes.

Definitely the kind of drugs we’re willing to pop.

MODEL ALERT : Julia Nobis

Heya Poutlings!

I love sharing with you some of the fantastic models I think are real ROLE MODELS to anyone that is aspiring to be the best model they can be… and let’s be clear, I’m talking about REAL modeling, not just looking shit hot to be some masturbation material for teenage boys and balding men! Actually, making a living from modeling, people paying you to do it… You know what I mean, right? Good. Let’s continue….

Last time, I introduced Anja Rubik, who is no less than amazing and such a HUGE name in the industry. Today, I present a model who is young, relatively new to the industry compared to Anja, but I think we haven’t seen the apex of this particular models career to date.

JULIA NOBIS

Julia Nobis is no doubt a rising star. She was only discovered in 2009.She has a unique look with a particular strong appearance. She’s known for playing guitar backstage before a show.

BEFORE AND AFTER BEING DISCOVERED WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL

Julia started modeling locally, in Australia, at the age of 16.

Her first time on an international catwalks was during CALVIN KLEIN fall 2010 in New York and she exclusively walked only for them.

 

The next step on Julia’s modeling career was during the same season but this time on the runways of London Fashion Week. She opened the fall TOPSHOP in London and also closed the RICHARD NICOLL show. During her time in London she got invites to Milan and Paris and she ended up walking for PRADA, DOLCE & GABANA, LOUIS VUITTON, VALENTINO, MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA and MIU MIU Fall fashion shows and as you can imagine she became well known as one of the best newcomers into the fashion world to date.

Later on in 2010 she walked for her first couture show, VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE in Paris.

2011 Spring fashion shows she opened and closed the POENZA SCHOULER fashion show and also walked for BURBERRY, ALEXANDER WANG, LOUIS VUITTON, CHANEL and BALENCIAGA runways. She also presented looks at the spring CHANEL and ELIE SAAB couture fashion shows.

 

During Spring 2012, FASHIONTV’s FIRST FACE COUNTDOWN featured Julia Nobis as number 3. She was beat by Anja Rubik and Amyeline Valade.

Currently, Julia has only been on one fashion magazine cover, Australian Vogue featured her in 2011 where she posed for the photographer Kai Z Feng.

She has appeared in a number of editorials for British and Italian Vogue, i-D, Dazed & Confused, Interview and W Magazine.

What I particulary love about this model is that she lives an alternative lifestyle, she has broken the international stereotype of MODEL! Julia is really into martial arts, some of her favourite bands are Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stoneage and Rage Against the Machine. She has the perfect mix in her book of “alternative” or should I say edgy shots combined with standard commerical and high fashion couture! The proof is in this models book, and I think she’s got it nailed. Don’t you??

So, models and models-in-training, are you inspired?

Louis Vuitton & Yayoi Kusama COLLABORATION!!

Heya Poutlings!

For a long time now I’ve been fascinated and somewhat amazed with the art and life of Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who has repetively made polka dot art for the last forty years. She is now 83 years old.

You read that right.

Forty years.

As in 40 years.

Almost twice my age.

THAT’S A LOT OF POLKA DOTS.

It seems that Louis Vuitton shares my interest too, and has released images of its collection inspired by Yayoi Kusama.

Unfortunately for us Africans, the collection is ONLY available in a few “choice” spots – it is popping up in Louis Vuitton’s New York City store from the beginning of this week and it will also be found at Printemps flagship in Paris and Selfridges in London.

A second collection on Yayoi Kusama’s pieces based on her “nerves” work, will be out in the northern hemisphere Autum, our spring this year.

My favourite look of infamous polka dot has to be the cute little hand bags and the raincoats come in second… What about you?
