Abbey Lee Kershaw began 2010 with a bang, covering the January issue of Numéro and then appearing on the February cover of Vogue Russia. Besides multiple covers, the Australian stunner also appeared in campaigns for Chanel, H&M, Alexander Wang and Karl Lagerfeld. She also appeared in the pages of Vogue Paris, Vogue Australia and POP. With pending campaigns for Donna Karan and Versace, Abbey Lee looks ready to take over the 2011 season.
2010 was not only the year of retro and nomad, but also the year of denim. Fashion went casual for 2010 with fashion editors pieces together wardrobes of blue jeans in the form of overalls, skirts, dresses and pants. From Vogue Germany to Elle Italia, it was a good year to be relaxed!
As a top model, Anja Rubik has appeared in a great number of campaigns, editorials and covers–and 2010 was no exception! The Polish beauty collaborated with Camilla Akrans multiple times this year and also appeared in the pages of Vogue Paris, Numéro and Vogue Korea to name a few notable publications. The spring and fall campaign seasons were also good for Anja with a two season run as the face of Fendi and Giuseppe Zanotti along with fall advertisements for H&M and Lanvin. Not showing any sign of slowing down soon, we have a feeling that 2011 will be yet another fruitful year for Anja Rubik.
It’s very rare when we get to see a good menswear inspired shoot focusing on the suit, but for 2010 fashion editors around the globe highlighted some of the year’s most intriguing and sharply tailored suit pieces. Whether monochromatic or patterned, two piece or three piece, this year was a time for the ladies to wear the pants. Below the cut, find twelve sweet suit looks of the season that stood out for our latest Year in Review.
Besides the retro trend, another editorial trend stood out for 2010 and that was fashion editors’ love for nomadic fashion. Showcasing luxe furs. heavy knits and colorful accessories, magazines such as Vogue Germany, Flair and Harper’s Bazaar Russia all took us on a nomadic journey. Some traditional and some more modern, FGR rounded up twelve nomadic looks for our latest Year in Review.
Continuing with our Year in Review, we take a look at the beauty stories of 2010. From Vogue Paris to Elle Sweden, this year was certainly filled with bold and bright beauty. For this review, we complied a list of voluminous coifs, shimmering lips, bedazzled eyelashes and of course–those sparkling gems!
This year, many editorials (and campaigns) took a walk on the wild side with animal prints taking center stage from labels such as Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and Salvatore Ferragamo. Whether out for a night on the town or getting glam in the studio, 2010 was a year for leopards to show their spots!
2010 has been a year filled with retro inspired editorials. With sophisticated and feminine garments from the likes of Prada, Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu–the fall 2010 season had its fair share of 50s houswives and 60s divas. From Vogue Germany’s time traveling homage to musicians to Elle UK’s dance marathon, paying homage to yesterday’s fashions was all the rage.
Yet another break out star of this year was Melodie Monrose (d’management group and Wilhelmina Models). The Martinique beauty may be shy but she has dominated the catwalk for the spring 2011 season with a combination of 49 shows. Fashion Gone Rogue was able to ask her about the most memorable job of the year, and her response revealed an upcoming editorial for Vogue Italia: “I would have to say my favorite job as of right now was shooting for Italian Vogue with Emma Summerton and Edward Enninful. Doing a Vogue shoot is every models goal and to do it after only 4 months was completely unbelievable!”
Continuing with our Year in Review, we now take a look at the fall 2010 campaigns. One major trend of the fall was groups–from Versace to Louis Vuitton, pairs and quartets were all the rage. Another trend of the fall season was minimalism. Many labels went with simple studio shoots or stark black and white photos from photography greats such as Mario Testino and Mert & Marcus. In the battle of spring versus fall, which season won out?
