Shot on location at the Palazzo Biscari in Italy, Mikael Jansson makes neat work of the stunning Rococo scenery with Cara Delevingne as muse. Each shot was as distinct as the next with a different backdrop each time but the culmination of it all came in the carefully curated mix of colored and black-and-white photos that would fit right into any art gallery.

The Vogue Italia July 2012 Collections main editorial shot by Steven Meisel, featuring the Fall/Winter 2012/2013 collections has got to be one of the best editorials to date this year –if not the whole of this year.
Starring Vanessa Axente, Julia Nobis, Erjona Ala, Mackenzie Drazan, Lida Fox and Elena Bartels on the three-page cover –all wearing Gucci– with Ros Georgiou, Hedvig Palm and Lula Österdahl in the rest of the shoot, the models managed to blend effortless together while pulling off a myriad of acts that you would never have thought would befit the clothes they were wearing. Immaculate styling by Karl Templer and peculiar yet ingenious set designs by Mary Howard complete this winning editorial spread.
Check out the rest of this spectacular editorial featuring Vanessa Axente, Julia Nobis, Erjona Ala, Mackenzie Drazan, Lida Fox, Elena Bartels, Ros Georgiou, Hedvig Palm and Lula Österdahl by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia July 2012, showcasing the Fall/Winter 2012/2013 Collections below.
Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart both cover the Interview Magazine June/July 2012 edition in the wake of the release of their movie, Snow White and The Huntsman. Shot by Mikael Jansson and styled by Karl Templer, Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart wear the likes of Balenciaga, Dior, Dries Van Noten, Tom Ford, Maison Martin Margiela, Lanvin and Valentino among others in an editorial themed much similar to the mood of their movie. Kristen Stewart manages to look drab in a fashion editorial yet again while the ever captivating Charlize Theron takes centre stage.

The Harper’s Bazaar US May 2012 issue features Balenciaga creative director Nicolas Ghesquiére and French actress-singer Charlotte Gainsbourg –who is the half-sister of Lou Doillon and daughter of Jane Birkin– in a tongue-in-cheek editorial shot by Jean-Paul Goude. The main highlight of this editorial is of course the now infamous Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2012 visor hats or ‘Darth Vader’ hats if you will; hence the Star Wars parody. I absolutely love it!
