Behind The Scenes With Tobey Maguire

Here’s a quick, behind-the-scenes video of Tobey Maguire’s fall/winter 2011 Prada menswear ad campaign photo shoot with David Sims.

I thought it was totally random, not to mention surprising, for Miuccia to use a celebrity for her fall/winter menswear ad campaign but the result, nonetheless, is quintessentially Prada. I love how Toby’s mysterious, curious and innocent look matches the collection’s aesthetic. There’s also that undeniable element of geekiness that makes it oh so cool. And those lurex pieces? Mark my words — they’re the new season’s must-have!

Emma Watson for Vogue USA July 2011

14/06/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Magazine Covers, Prada, Vogue USA

Once upon a time, I’ve looked up to the international editions of Vogue to find something new to inspire me. You know… something new, something that isn’t the same old, same old, something extraordinary. But what happens when most of the international Vogues become repetitive and the big elephant in the room, the grand-daddy of all Vogues, start flexing its muscles? Well, one cannot help but feel its powerful presence. This is what’s going on at the moment. American Vogue is on the right path (war path, perhaps?), taking me on this rollercoaster ride of glamorous extravaganza as of late. When young starlet Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame chopped her locks last year, the first thing that came to my mind was — VOGUE cover! Fast forward a year later, here’s Emma, in Prada, on the July 2011 cover of American Vogue. I love the transformation! Dudette is finally a lady.

Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside

30/05/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Lady Gaga, Music

You have to watch this intimate interview that was aired on MTV a few days featuring Lady Gaga. Between you and me, her music and her outlandish spectacle of outfits and crazy sets are almost secondary on what I like about her. I love what she represents, I love what she stands for, I love her message, I love her vision. No other artist pushed the envelope like Gaga in recent years. She’s the best.

Penelope Cruz for American Vogue June 2011

22/05/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Dolce & Gabbana, Fashion and Style, Magazine Covers, Vogue USA

Following the blockbuster Lady Gaga (pink hair) and Rihanna (red hair) covers, how refreshing is Penelope’s US Vogue cover? She wore Dolce & Gabbana throughout the issue. What a natural beauty!

THUMBS UP: Joan Small’s editorial was my favourite. I also love the Novak Djokovic piece. His body is pure perfection. Dasha Shishkin’s feature was a great read. Liu Wen in Prabal Gurung looks glamorous.

THUMBS DOWN: Slightly disappointed with the “America Beautiful” fashion spreads — I liked Karlie and Raquel, Arizona was too practical and Isabeli, for the lack of a better word, looks cheap. Also, Index was very weak.

I’m gonna read the whole magazine soon.

Reese Witherspoon For American Vogue May 2011 Cover

11/04/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Fashion and Style, Magazine Covers, Vogue USA

Reese Witherspoon, in Roland Mouret, is on the cover of May 2011 issue of American Vogue.

Reese looks terrific. The cover photo, shot by Peter Lindbergh, looks great! Very cinematic. This is the power of American Vogue at its best: the ability to transform Dorothy-next-door actresses into untouchable, unreachable, high-voltage glossy amazons.

Also, I must say that I’m very impressed that Anna Wintour picked a non-advertiser on the cover. Forgive me if I’m wrong but as far as I know, Roland Mouret doesn’t advertise yet.

I can’t wait to get my issue!
