Can we talk about…

Bella Thorne’s feature in InStyle’s June issue? Dead.

Image

I haven’t watched Disney Channel since I was, like, 11? I’m not familiar with Thorne’s work, but she’ll be alongside our girl Drew (Barrymore) and Adam Sandler in Blended.

Image

So, that’s kind of a deal.

Image

Under the title”Dark Angel,” Nina Sterghiou styled Thorne in textured beaded jumpsuits and elegant chiffon dresses.

Image

 

I love the juxtaposition of the elegant cuts against the dark colors and corse, dynamic materials.

Have you heard of the Anderson siblings?

ImageImageImage

Sophia, Hannah and Joshua Anderson are some stylish, badass siblings from Texas that have made a name for themselves, especially on Instagram, for their fantastic photos/style/adventures/etc.

 Since this is a #womancrushwednesday feature, we’ll focus on Sophia and Hannah. But you can read up more about Joshua here.

Sophia is a style queen.

Image

Seriously, I don’t understand how she isn’t on the cover of every J. Crew catalogue.

Image

 Image

I need these pants in my life.

Image

Hannah is this musical goddess.

Image

You can listen/download Hannah’s tunes here and here. She’s crazy good. It kills me.

Image

Also, her bravery in hairstyling is enviable. She went from this asymmetrical bowl cut thing to a fade and can rock literally anything.

Image

Image

AND they take awesome pictures. Their posts always brighten up my feed. I could scroll through their instas endlessly. SO much inspiration.

Can We Talk About…

The Wade Brothers.

 

Lyndon and Lindsey Wade

Lyndon and Lindsey Wade

Boss Lady Christina has her hand in a lot of awesome projects. She styles music video shoots, movies and commercials in between being you know, the Boss at Revival.  Just this past week she worked with two of the coolest kids in the photography game,  The Wade Brothers. Based in Kansas City, these brothers produce intense images through photography, directorial projects and creative directing. With an all-star list of clients under their belt, including Microsoft, Nintendo, Harley Davidson and Ebay, their visually pungent aesthetic can transverse multiple brands and mediums.

Seeing the stills of their photography has me itching to sneak a peek at the twisted world of movement they create in film.

Did I mention I got to work with them too? Geeked up.

Can we talk about…

The blog Where I See Fashion?

Image

Alla Kostromichova by Sølve Sundsbø in “The Girl from Atlantis” for Vogue Japan May 2010 wearing Alexander McQueen | Snake skin

Literally I haven’t been checking a website as often as I do this one since I found Designlovefest two years ago.

Image

Iris Van Herpen Spring 2012 | Old tree bark

 How does someone even do this? Her ability to pair things and see fashion in the most unusual places is uncanny and absolutely brilliant.

Image

Solange Knowles for Complex Magazine 2013 Cover Story | Sterlitzia (bird of paradise flower)

I don’t know who the girl is, but she’s a fashion design student from Milan. She doesn’t use her own images, either. If anything, she might use photoshop to get better colors.

Image

She started the blog just because she felt the need to do something with all the inspiring images she found on Tumblr.

“Sometimes a fashion picture reminds me instantly of something and I go look for it, sometimes it’s a random picture that makes me think of an outfit or editorial.”

 Fantasy Wedding Dress by Marchesa Spring 2011 | Smoke by Andrew Kim

“Occasionally it happens that by chance I see two pictures near each other on my dashboard or in a random blog that perfectly go together. Also I have A LOT of photos that I saved on my computer because I found them interesting, it’s like my personal archive and I use it a lot to make matches.”

Can you imagine searching for hours through your archives of images to find that one picture you vaguely remember seeing two months ago from a random vogue photoshoot?

Like, kill me. That’s crazy.

This girl is literally superhuman.

To finish, my ultimate favorite. You should seriously bookmark this girl, she is a constant source of inspiration.

Winter is coming

I apologize for the Game of Thrones reference, but is it not perfect?

Happy December, y’all!

I sat at my computer for hours after I packed my tummy full of a considerably ridiculous amount of food this past Thanksgiving break.

Image

While vegging out, I couldn’t stop staring at this photo series called ‘In the Wake of Thunder’ from Alex Stoddard. He’s a 20-year-old fine art photographer living in LA.

Image

All of Alex’s shit is super hauntingly beautiful.

I found him when I was a lil’ young’n in high school and became obsessed instantly. Somewhere within the development of other social media (probably Instagram) I totally forgot he existed.

Until I stumbled upon this badassery.

Image

This series reminds me of a dark horror film or something slightly less terrifying coming out of the mind of Edgar Allen Poe.

Image

Image

It also seems to have this strong presence of winter. Just this icy, cold chill hanging in the air.

Image

Check out his website here.

Can we talk about…

Zev Hoover?

Image

He’s a 14-year-old photographer. He takes pictures with his older sister, Aliza (Nellie), who is 18 and does some photography on her own, too.

Image

It’s hard to believe he can do this. I mean, he’s 14!

What did I do when I was 14? I danced around my room to Jonas Brothers and ate a lot of pizza.

I’m skeptical because of how much mastery and beauty are in these photos, but I’m hooked.

#impressed

Image

 I guess this is what you do when you live in Natick, Massachusetts?

It’s fucking incredible. Photo manipulation gets me every time.

Image

So mystical and mysterious.

Image

Surreal shit, right?

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

His work seems to be really influenced by fairy-tales or some type of other-worldly influence.

ImageImage

Check out the rest of his stuff here.

Aerial fashion, anyone?

Image

Joseph Ford is London native who started taking pictures while getting a degree in French and Italian and the University of Cambridge. He’s done some crazy shit.

Including this!

Image

I’m a sucker for interesting conceptual photography. Ford hits the nail on the head.

Image

 These colors kill me. It’s so damn beautiful.

Image

Image

Check out the project here.

Can We Talk About…Henry Busby?

Image

Meet the handsome Henry Busby, a 21 year old photographer and filmmaker based out of Alabama.

Image

Image

His portraits are my favorite. He seems to be a master of light and color; they are simply stunning. The detailing makes them look almost painted. And for someone so young? Holy shit. He is so talented.

Image

Is it too soon/pretentious to say he’s the Andy Warhol of photographers?

Image

Look at that color, though!

Image

Maybe I’m just not educated in art enough. But I think so.

Anyways, he takes some damn good pictures of cake, too.

Image

Yum.

It’s interesting to look at photographers work. Everyone can say they are a photographer now because of the fantastic capability on our phone’s camera and a couple of half-assed app filters. But it’s a real art. You have to have an eye.

Theres a lot of different types of jobs that you need a certain eye for, but we can talk about that some other time.

Busby has that eye, though. And I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for his career.
