Fashion does it Better


FDIB loves and bookmarks: Marike by Beau Grealy

Marike Le Roux @ Wilhelmina (NY) Long time we haven't officially bookmarked any blog piece on FDIB but truth is we rely a lot more on our second page, J'avoue J'aime for this kind of entries (faster and right to the point). But this occasion seemed made for FDIB as both Marike Le Roux and Beau Grealy were already featured here and when one of our favorite model works with one of our favorite photographer, it's tough not to mention it here. The story comes from Italian Flair, May 2010 issue and was spotted on Wilhelmina's blog... [Lire la suite]

No Face, No Name, No Twitter

    Marloes Horst @ Joy (Milan), Next (NY, Paris, London), Ulla (The Netherlands) After ten days spent under another sky (or let's better say under other skies), first things we saw while turning on our good-old and delightfully slow computer are some brand new covers. December issues. Holidays pre-taste (and pretexts) or new year/new vibe concepts are making a few waves around us. Or in front of us, right in our eyes. Right in the target ? We guess not. We won't have to spend too much lines explaining that we... [Lire la suite]

Soon we’ll be home but we don’t know if you will too

Ginta Lapina @ Women (NY) Sweet music, early hours of the night. Bright colors and delicate shades. Ginta in Flair. We wish Ginta everywhere, everyday but just get delighted every single time she appears. Expected or unexpected, enough to keep our love alive, still rare and precious. Ginta by Beau Grealy who shot some of our most cherished editorials of the last two years, who catches his characters like only few can do and sets atmosphere with the same talent. It's quite simple, it's quite striking, it's quite stunning. Like... [Lire la suite]

Thanks again, Jules

Jules Mordovets @ IMG Lusso. Our second feature from current Flair goes to Jules Mordovets, known for her poised and precious look on the catwalks and laid-back attitude right after. Also for that steady career, only built on rock-solid booking from Chanel runways to editorials like this one, shot by Benjamin Lennox. The first detail that caught our eyes might not exactly be a detail and could turn into her signature for the rest of her career. Think about verasitily, see the way she morphed into a totally...

Like there's no Tomorrow

  Mina Cvetkovic @ Women (NY) It's not the first time they work together. Mina Cvetkovic and photographer Beau Grealy. We would love any pictures with Mina and Beau's work is seriously growing on us as well (we also owe him some seriously stunning shots of Dasha Malygina, another perennial favorite of ours). Beau was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, and works in New York. Mina looks like she was born and raised in South Detroit, like in one of our favorite movie-soundtracks. In a story simply entitled About A Girl,... [Lire la suite]

French Flair in Italian Flair

  Charlotte Di Calypso @ One (NY) It's fair to say that Flair has got flair and we might had Charlotte bring french flair to Flair. Too much of a flair affair turning into a Flair affair but one thing is sure: we're going to buy it again. Charlotte Di Calypso, Couture queen in Paris (with Elite) then NY darling a few weeks later. TMSRRE girl number three of this season booked Carolina Herrera, Max Azria, Derek Lam and Ralph Lauren since our last piece on her. Selective more than sensational, true to our motto saying that...

Double delight and double drama for a double dose of Dasha

Dasha Malygina @ Supreme (NY) It's in Flair's Americana issue, two editorials with Dasha Malygina, one by Dan Martensen and the other by Beau Grealy. Variations around a theme, two visions and one Dasha who perfectly fits. Who melts into then strengthen her presence. Halfway between the role and her own role (read: the one she plays on polas at least), halfway between a dark Dasha and an anonymous american woman. Presence and performance: quiet passenger or dizzy doll. American ballet, Russian dancer, Italian magazine. Sounds... [Lire la suite]

Higher and higher

Natasha Belobrovik @ Ford (NY), Elite (Paris) Climbing on a mountain and reaching the clouds. Natasha's on a lucky cloud right now, higher and higher and higher than ever. The top, the summit this month is in Flair, yes the awesome issue featuring Shelby Keeton on the cover. A must see and a must have, from page one to infinity. Pictured by KT Auleta, who shot the best of Hilary Rhoda ever (for Dazed & Confused), this editorial is just so... KT for those who are familiar with her incredible trademark. Need more of her work,... [Lire la suite]

I wish I were a lollipop

Masha Kirsanova @ Avant (Russia), Viva (Paris), Why Not (Milan) From the underground station to the glossy pages of Flair Italia. Masha Kirsanova was on our wish-list before leaving for Paris in february. We had the feeling she could be among the newcomers who count this season. A flickering of her eyes actually changed our feeling, under the bright white lights in the parisian métro. She's not one of them, she's one of a kind. The kind that knows how sweet and acid go on well together. The kind that knows both are requested to make... [Lire la suite]
