The publication will release three covers featuring Cindy Crawford's daughter, plus one more in time for Paris Fashion Week.
Though her modeling career hasn't been without challenges, Clauson says she has no regrets.
For someone whose career is on fire, Stevie Dance comes across disarmingly laidback as she sits across from me on a bench outside a Lower East Side cafe. The thing is, her in-the-moment attitude isn’t actually nonchalance, it’s her way of being present and focused, which has guided her insanely successful career as a stylist—a path she never even thought she’d take. “I’ve never been that calculating with my career or set out to achieve any of this. I enjoy it as it happens and work extremely hard,” explains Dance.
If you're wondering how much progress the fashion industry has made in creating healthier working conditions for models, particularly young teen ones,
Three-named beauties Freja Beha Erichsen and Georgia May Jagger grace two of Pop's just-released fall covers. Both covers made us do double-takes--G
After her brief and less than well-received stint as Pop's editor-in-chief, it sounds like Dasha Zhukova has finally found a place to do her fashion-meets-art thing her way. Her new magazine, Garage, debuts for fall 2011 and the New York Times' Eric Wilson got a preview. The art collector, fashion designer, and girlfriend of Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, named the magazine after the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, a museum she opened in Moscow in 2008. Garage’s art director, Mike Meiré tells the Times, “It is so very, very different from other magazines,” and that sounds pretty accurate. According to Wilson, it "looks almost handmade." The inaugural issue has multiple covers: One was a collaboration between artist Dinos Champan and Show Studio's Nick Knight and features a creepy dollhouse in which a puppet version of Lily Donaldson wears Marc Jacobs. Another cover features a model shot nude from the waist down, her nether regions covered by a butterfly sticker that can be peeled off to reveal...a butterfly tattoo. On a vagina.
Aliona Doletskaya's departure from Vogue Russia raised more than a few questions, but mostly people just wondered, "Where would she go next?" Despite rumors that she would replace Anna Wintour at American Vogue, or Carine Roitfeld at Vogue Paris, the most likely scenario was that she would take over Pop from fellow Russian Dasha Zhukova. Instead, Doletskaya will launch two European editions of Interview magazine--one in Russia at the end of 2011 and one in Germany at the beginning of 2012. She will serve as editor-in-chief of both publications. This is great news for Doletskaya, but it's also good news for Brant Publications, the publisher of Interview.
You can imagine the excitement I felt yesterday morning when I found out Katie Grand had launched her own website housing her complete works. Grand's new website features a signature quirky design that highlights her immaculate styling. From Pop to Love to Miu Miu to The Face to Dazed and Confused to Vuitton, Grand has literally done it all. And any fashion enthusiast will consider her new site a blessing. Usually stylists' work is hard to find without trolling The Fashion Spot for hours, and even then, it's usually incomplete. Grand's site is organized and encyclopedic, and will make your mouth water. We've pulled our 20 favorites from Grand's archive, but we recommend heading to KatieGrand.com and wasting a few hours, too.
Magazine covers in 2010 could be arranged into two simple categories: the absolutely amazing and the offensively bad. But let's focus on the good here... 2010 was the year that brought us two sets of fantastic LOVE covers (including Alessandra styled by Katie Grand, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Lauren Hutton, styled by Fashionista columnist Sally Lyndley), Anna Wintour on the cover of the somewhat mysterious Industrie magazine, Dakota Fanning doing her best starlet in Dazed & Confused, and Lara's boobs, looking better than ever on the 90th anniversary issue of Vogue Paris. Overall, covers in 2010 were dynamic, bright, and a bit raunchy, so click through to see which ones hit the right note.
Since Russian gallerina Dasha Zhukova resigned as the editor of Pop last week, folks have been wondering about who would replace her. A rumor from the twittersphere claims that former Russian Vogue EIC Aliona Doletskaya is gunning for the spot. And it comes from an insidery source. Fashion man about town Derek Blasberg just tweeted: "In today's completely unsubstantiated rumors: Aliona Doletskaya, former editor-in-chief of Russian Vogue, is vying for the top gig at POP." When Doletskaya resigned there were rumors she would replace Wintour at American Vogue. But since Anna's not going anywhere soon, there could be some truth to the rumor, and Pop might hand the EIC spot over to another Russian. Pop, Katie Grand's baby, took on a less fashion-y more artsy vibe under Zhukova's reign, so Doletskaya would have the fashion cred and contacts to return the mag to its fashion roots. Is it true? Tell us if you know anything at email@example.com.
Dasha Zhukova, who replaced Katie Grand as the editor of Pop nearly two years ago, has resigned from the magazine, according to Telegraph fashion editor Hilary Alexander. Pop was Katie Grand's baby and Zhukova--a Russia gallery girl, Kova & T designer, and partner of billionaire Roman Abramovich--was given a lot of crap when she entered the role. Owned by Bauer--yes, the publisher who runs Life & Style--Pop has taken on a less-fashion-y, more artsy vibe during Zhukova's reign. Whether or not Zhukova was unceremoniously canned or simply decided she'd had enough is yet to be determined. Know anything? Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Katie Grand is, by far, one of my all time favorite fashion heroes. Every time I work with her and for her I learn SO much. Not only is she one of the only editors that gives me the space and platform to do much of my favorite styling work, she gives me the opportunity to collaborate with the BEST people in the business. For that, I will forever be in Katie's debt. When I worked for Katie at Pop magazine, she taught me what it means to be a fashion visionary and an incredible business woman. I'm not going to go into a long spiel here about her biography; I really wanted to chat with her specifically about styling. For this column, I will be conducting a series of interviews with people in different fashion roles who hire and work with stylists, or the iconic stylists themselves. Katie answered my questions with the honesty and humor that I always appreciate from her. I learned so much reading her answers, I hope you guys do too! Here it goes.... SL: How long have you been styling? It began when you started Dazed & Confused with Rankin and Jefferson Hack in 1993, right? KG: Yeah, I was at St Martins and met Rankin and Jefferson at a bar in the basement of the Trocadero called DNA and I started working on Dazed, initially folding magazines, and then my first story was a white t-shirt story, shot by a friend of mine, Gary, who was at St. Martins doing photography. SL: What led you to styling versus doing another job in fashion, like design?
Katie Hillier has had a career most could only dream of. Designing accessories at Luella, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and working as a contributor and senior-editor at POP, Katie's resume is a fashion wonder. But it was only recently that the British designer turned her sights on a different goal: creating her own label. Fresh on the heels of her win as Accessories Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2009, Katie set to work on Hillier, her eponymous jewelry line. Mixing luxury with fun, Hillier is adorable, unexpected, and highly covetable. Click through for our convo with Katie.
When thinking of artist/celebrity pairs to create a magazine cover, the duo of Britney Spears and Takashi Murakami is not one of the more obvious choices. But Pop's Winter 2010 cover (they're really ahead of the game) shows Britney looking Japanime envisioned by Mr. Murakami himself. (Todd Cole was behind the camera.) Since Dasha Zhukova's appointment as EIC, Pop has taken an artsy tone, its Summer 2010 cover shot by Richard Prince. The strange coincidence is that both Prince and Murakami gained major fashion world fame because of their collaborations with Louis Vuitton. Maybe Marc is consulting on these covers....
