MODELS.COM’S BEST FASHION EDITORIALS OF THE YEAR. I WAS NOT IN LOVE WITH 96% OF THEM.
They said: "With one of the most topical and timely editorials of the year, Steven Meisel used fashion to comment on the current environmental crisis." I agreed.
They said: "Great casting makes you rethink your models; who would have ever thought of Sasha as maternal until this editorial came along. The sweet story was a breath of fresh air and strikingly different from VP’s in your face, controversy inducing fare."
By Roe Etheridge for Dazed and Confused. They said: "The combined talents of Etheridge, Duffy and Lisa Houghton combine to offer up a novel twist on the beauty story that transforms the industry’s biggest girls." Hm. And uses poor, defenseless butterflies as mascara.
They said: A truly audacious tribute to Guy Bourdin and one of the year’s most talked about stories. Is it unflattering? Is it tongue in cheek? Is it just plain ol’ grotesque? This story had a way of pushing people’s buttons." My button: why not shoot a "plus size" girl (who has suffered from an eating disorder in the past,) bingeing?
They said:"Echoing the film The Shining and its eerie mood, Mark Segal for Interview, uses twins Ann & Kirby to create an enjoyably off-kilter story." I think: creepy. Just creepy.
They said: "Pure imagination. Damien Blottiere’s use of cut outs to create images never fails to excite and impress." I'm impressed.
With simple premise and a bit of cool styling, Ben Toms for aNother crafts an enviably chic studio editorial; note to the the powers that be, this is how its done!" I think: Black Lance Armstrong.
By Solve Sundsbo for Interview. They said: "This is just a flawless editorial. Striking use of color, movement and 70′s style ensembles. The fact that Melodie and Anais are incredible together certainly doesn’t hurt things either."
They said: "Vogue UK December With Siri Tollerod With a whimsical and witty take on the astrological chart, Tim Gutt’s fantastical editorial was the perfect way to end the year. Shona Heath’s larger than life sets are out of this world." I don't belive in horoscopes.
But I don not know a single thing about fashion.
