Rounding out this Friday, Mert & Marcus make their third appearance on Fashion Gone Rogue today with a recent editorial published in September’s Vogue Paris. Taking to the studio , the photography duo captures androgyny in the form of Malgosia Bela, Daphne Groeneveld at Union Models, male model Andrej Pejic and transsexual model Lea T. Styled by Carine Roitfeld, inspiration ranges from seventies’ glam rock to modern romantics in Rive Gauche et Libre.

Decorated in an array of military memorabilia, Malgosia Bela makes a pretty convincing servicewoman for the August edition of Vogue Paris. Photographed by Josh Olins with styling by Veronique Didry, the Polish beauty sports jewelry from the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Bulgari in Médailles du Style.
After an early preview, we finally have a full look at the fall advertisements from Givenchy. Starring an all star group of models including Mariacarla Boscono, Catherine McNeil, Malgosia Bela and Joan Smalls, the campaign is complemented by its strong color palette, bold casting and a focus on the label’s sleek clothing. Photographed by Mert & Marcus, it is by far one of the most memorable campaigns of the season with its fusion of womenswear and menswear.

Givenchy’s fall haute couture collection garnered a more intimate gathering this season with a special presentation consisting of ten looks with ten models. Riccardo Tisci, the label’s creative director, said of the change, “I want to make couture even more special than it is, and not just another catwalk show.” Gone are the black ensembles and dramatic makeup which are replaced with neutral shades and ornate details of lace and fringe. Topping off the look are sleek silhouettes and tailored jackets.
There is something about statues and fashion photography that fit so perfectly together. Perhaps it is because both bring to mind images of beauty and glamour, and within the most recent issue of Vogue Nippon, Malgosia Bela manages to look like a work of art herself in front of Cédric Buchet’s lens. Styled by George Cortina, Malgosia amazes with an exquisite grace as she dons airy garments that would make any Grecian goddess jealous.
