Former Miss Universe New Zealand titleholders feature in upcoming Lucire editorial

Lucire staff/23.20



Two former Miss Universe New Zealand titleholders will appear in an upcoming feature in the printed edition of Lucire, with New York-based photographer Jon Moe travelling to Los Angeles to capture the pair for the magazine.
   Laural Barrett (2007) and Samantha Lochhead (née Powell, 2008) both live in the LA area, with Barrett pursuing her musical career and Lochhead recently arriving with her husband, footballer Tony Lochhead.
   In addition to Moe, the crew consisted of Jamie Dorman on make-up, Carina Tafulu stepping in at the eleventh hour for hair, Lei Phillips on styling (assisted by Janice Gonzalez). The venue, Riviera 31, is a cocktail lounge at the Sofitel luxury hotel in West Hollywood, arranged through Pivotal PR.
   Lucire publisher Jack Yan and fashion editor Sopheak Seng guided and coordinated from head office in New Zealand, with the aid of US west coast editor Elyse Glickman.
   The current issue, no. 32, is on sale now and features a cover shot by Claire Harrison in the UK.
   Entries are open, meanwhile, for Miss Universe New Zealand 2014, after the new consortium put the event back on television in New Zealand after two decades.

Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, Chrissy Teigen share Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover, shot in the Cook Islands

Lucire staff/4.29

Three models share the cover honours for the 50th anniversary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for 2014: Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen.
   The 2014 edition was revealed Thursday night on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit blog and débuted on national TV Thursday night in the US on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
   It is the first cover for all three models. Teigen has modelled for the special issue since 2010, and Agdal had her début in 2012. It is Aldridge’s first year.
   The last time three models appeared on the cover was in 2006.
   The cover was shot by James Macari in the Cook Islands. The magazine itself will hit newsstands next week, in print and digital formats.
   Teigen also appears in Air New Zealand’s latest safety video, co-branded with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, which was also shot in the Cook Islands.
   Kate Upton had appeared on the cover over the previous two years.

Behind the Lucire 2014 redesign, and a features’ round-up

Jack Yan/13.31


Surface Too Deep

Top A promotional image from Surface Too Deep. The model on the left is reading Lucire. It’s a better photo than we could have come up with to promote ourselves. Above Lucire’s new look for the web edition’s news pages for 2014.

You may have noticed we’ve continued to do some housekeeping around the place. Our web news pages now sport a new look for 2014, following on from the facelifted home page. We’re still finding our feet a little with the image sizes, but we should settle into things by the lunar New Year.
   You’d never guess, but getting the new search button at the top of the page, as well as having DuckDuckGo handle our searches, took around an hour. (This switch means we will have no record of what you searched for. In the last 10 years, we knew which keywords were used, but we never bothered looking beyond that. With people increasingly concerned about online privacy, DuckDuckGo is a search engine that doesn’t leak anything to the NSA et al, for the simple reason that it doesn’t keep any search records.) The new footer took an hour and a half. And creating the template for these pages and making sure they worked took around 11 hours. The comment system is now driven by Disqus across the entire Lucire site, not just the features. We also switched from Feedburner for the daily email newsletters to Feedblitz, since there may have been a bug that saw Feedburner deliver the wrong news. We wanted to be safe rather than sorry.
   However, we hope you like it, although if you’re browsing on a cellphone and some mobile devices, you should be seeing a reduced version of these pages as before.
   There have also been new articles on the main part of the website. Elyse Glickman checked out Düsseldorf in her ‘Volante’ feature (the first of three in Germany)—the first article to get the new look. Next up was Stanley Moss, writing as Lovejoy, with our serialization of his novel The Crimson Garter.
   It’s a departure for us to feature fiction, though readers may remember a few road tests by yours truly where I aped the style of another author—my Aston Martin V8 Vantage review was linked and even posted on a forum at the time. However, Stanley’s novel is so compelling it bears the hallmarks of many great Lucire travel stories (many of which were penned by him), and it covers subjects that are familiar to readers. Plus, you can also check out some of the places covered through the related links at the bottom of the page. The icing on the cake is that The Crimson Garter is a really good yarn. The first two chapters are up now, and we’ll add more regularly. Since many of you get into novels over summer, it seems to be an ideal time to serialize his novel. You can also order the whole thing if you want to read ahead—click through and there are links to Kobobooks and Amazon to the right of the title.
   In case you missed the features, Lola Saab has the low-down for spring 2014 from New York; Tamara Madison interviewed Alexandra von Bromssen; and Anna Deans looks at Lindex’s latest campaign with Matthew Williamson and Karlie Kloss. There were also two looks back at 2013: our news-makers, and my personal review of the year.
   Finally, though certainly not least, we have to give props to swimwear label Surface Too Deep for the great photograph above. The model on the left is reading Lucire. The model on the right has put down another title. I think it says it all: the print editions of Lucire, as we regularly hear from readers, truly engage you from cover to cover.—Jack Yan, Publisher

Golden Globe suites: another great GBK “signature” event

Elyse Glickman/1.16



Cole Zimmerman, courtesy GBK

Behind every Golden Globe-nominated performance or directorial effort, there’s a great writer. However, it is not just the screenwriters who make the Hollywood world go around. The public relations’ reps and the payroll departments (who sign the cheques) deserve some credit, too. That’s why it is only fitting that Pilot Pens’ new affordable luxury line of fountain pens as well as their chic disposable models made for one of the best presentations among the sponsors. Behold, the GBK and Pilot Pen Luxury Gift Lounge made its mark on the 2014 award season while getting the point across for Lambda Legal (providing legal defense on behalf of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV across the nation for 40 years) and Guard-A-Heart.
   The other stand-out sponsor was Airweave, which showcased its innovative line of mattress toppers from Japan fashioned from resin strings similar to what’s used in their fishing industry. The mattress is made by three-dimensionally entwining and heat-bonding thin polyethylene strings. The resulted structure gives the mattress superior air permeability.
   While there were some familiar faces and product lines, like Sabra and Yoplait Greek Yogurt, there were some new fashion and beauty essentials in the mix worth writing home about. SAAS Hot Sauce rolled out bottles of its two flavours of savoury, authentic, all-purpose, and spicy sauce winning over foodies nationwide. Rolf Bleu by Caryn Sterling has expanded her line of Iphone and cross-body Ipad covers to jewellery and whimsical message beanies, costume jewellery and other goodies.
   Tweezerman had some clever new grooming instruments, including a spring-y facial hair remover, cuticle cutter and adorable minis designed by Isaac Mizrahi and for the Art of Elysium, a non-profit organization, founded in 1997 by Jennifer Howell, encouraging actors, artists and musicians to voluntarily dedicate their time and talent to children who are battling serious medical conditions. Spanx was back with a new laser line that should remedy the problem of waistband roll-down that can undo the desired effect of shapewear.
   Self-proclaimed ‘heart-ist’ and art glass jewellery designer Hillel Rzepka has teamed up with sponsoring charity Guard-a-Heart to drive home the importance of regular check-ups, common-sense health practices and preventative medicine to protect one’s coronary health. The suite also provided a nice platform for GWEN (Global Women’s Empowerment Network) which offers women in need a variety of services.
   I was completely enthusiastic about Fluxmob, an ingenious little company that just plugged in to the scene with its Bolt, the world’s smallest battery pack and wall charger combination charger.
   Though not plugged in or wired, some of the beauty essentials were also quite interesting. These included Sleep-in Rollers (comfy hair rollers that are designed to flatten like a sponge) Minerva Research Labs’ Pure Gold Collagen (a liquid food supplement with hydrolyzed collagen and active ingredients essential for the production of collagen and skin hydration), Embellash Eyelash Conditioner and Hands-Free Skin Brightener from the Crave Collection, and Burke Williams Spa, offering their newest products along with massages.
   Pink Diamond Jewelry by Fiamma dazzled, not only because of the gems’ radiance against filigree designs in white and yellow gold, but its continued efforts to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Representative Tigerlily Skye not only wore those sparklers well but also reminded guests of how the purchase of the line’s pieces would benefit people beyond the wearer. Made By Survivors, an international non-profit gifting silver and brass hand-made jewellery made by survivors of human trafficking, made a similar impact with its modern, rustic designs.
   The Artisan Group was back, and GBK would not be the same without their grab-bags of creativity. My bag featured beautiful stationery from Angsana Seeds Photography and GeekGirly Photography, plus accessories from Jems by JB & Company, Jewelry by Andrea, Alison Lundahl Jewelry, Ruby White Tips nail enamel (in blingy bottles) and Maureen Connor of Meant 2B Cherished.
   One cool feature of the event was the way L’Ermitage Hotel’s new V Wine Room was introduced to all the tastemakers in attendance. V Wine Room is the only dedicated tasting room in Los Angeles, proudly pouring limited-production boutique California wines exclusively on their premises. This fabulousness is set against a backdrop of a 1930s-inspired library–speakeasy hybrid.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor

Lucire’s style round-up: fashionable Instagrams this week, January 14

Anna Deans/0.11

Today’s fashion Instagram round-up includes, first, my current model-crush, Bambi Northwood-Blyth. Here, she is looking effortlessly sexy-chic with her head out a car window. Only Bambi could wear a vintage looking bralette and pink shirt to do this and make it look unsilly. Bambi’s best friend and DJ Bip Ling is also included this week, in a snap from Bambi’s fiancé Dan Single’s Instagram. Bip is looking super-alty and stylish in a peach-pink and green skirt and top set with flamboyant frills. She has paired this with stark white platforms with Nike ankle socks, a wicked pair of sunnies and a tousled, beachy mane. I am dying for this super-original look.
   Also included from Australia this week is model and 4th and Bleeker blogger, Alexandra Spencer. Here she looks über-sexy in a hat over half her face with her sumptuous lips showing underneath. I appreciate the black-and-white element of this shot making it even more edgy-sexy. I have also included world-class blogger from Fashiontoast, Rumi Neely, this week. Rumi is a constant style icon of mine and this week she is wearing a sheer-dusty-grey silk organza T, with a soft-cup barely-there bra underneath. Her make-up is its usual minimal self, with a slight cat-eye, paired with her usual tousled mane.
   The last Instagram shot from a blog this week is from Jak & Jil. This blog is a compilation of renowned street-style photographer Tommy Ton’s imagery. This shot is a true pink confection: Tania Gačić looks fabulous wearing an oversized fuchsia blazer with matching bag and lip. Somehow this Barbie-pink look, even on a blonde, still works.
   I have included two more high-profile celebrities this week, the first a stunning shot of Jennifer Lawrence off Vogue Brasil’s Instagram. I am adoring her vulnerability in this shot where she is wearing a robe, most likely having her make-up done. Her expression and make-up are both soft and this endears her very much.
   Rita Ora makes the last celeb spot this week, as I couldn’t resist but include her fabulous eyebrow-advice shot: it is so true. Ladies, take note from Rita’s advice about keeping your brows a less-dramatic, more natural shape.
   Last, I included a shot from my own Instagram. This week I thought I would mix it up and have a beauty-inspo shot of myself, rather than an outfit. Here, I am having fun with my make-up look wearing my usual minimal make-up paired with a statement orange lip by MAC and a tousled pony. Let me know what you think of my more bold look. And that’s a wrap!—Anna Deans

Tom Ford shoots Esther Heesch, Conrad Bromfield and Carlos Peters for spring–summer ’14

Lucire staff/11.15



Tom Ford

Esther Heesch models Tom Ford’s spring–summer 2014 campaign, shot by the designer himself in London.
   The setting sees Heesch, in the role of a star, surrounded by a male crowd in a nightclub setting, looking seductive in black dresses and shoes from Tom Ford. Trends in the advertisement include leather, crystal embellishments, short hems, perforations, killer heels and thick-rimmed eyewear.
   The male campaign features Conrad Bromfield and Carlos Peters, wearing brightly coloured tailored jackets and trousers.
   The entire women’s collection, shown last September at London Fashion Week, had a harder edge than other designers’ projections for the season. Instead of soft and romantic, Ford’s woman is sensual and powerful. While not depicted in the initial campaign images, the spring–summer 2014 collection also features long-sleeve dresses, leather jackets and psychedelic patterns.
   Ford photographed and styled, while Orlando Pita did the hair, Charlotte Tilbury the make-up, and Liza Smith the manicures. Charlie Parker produced the campaign shoot.

Grand Prix photography exhibition opens at Getty Images Gallery on February 6

Rainer W. Schlegelmilch

Top Michael Schumacher comes to the Mercedes-Benz pits at the Shanghai Grand Prix, April 17, 2011. Centre John Surtees and others do the opening sprint at Le Mans, July 21, 1964. Above Nina Rindt waiting for her husband Jochen to pass by. He had a fatal accident at Parabolica just moments after this picture was taken, on September 6, 1970.

An exhibition at the Getty Images Gallery, Freeze the Speed, showcases the work of Rainer W. Schlegelmilch, the famed Formula 1 photographer.
   Schlegelmilch began his career as a Formula 1 photographer in 1962. The 50 years’ worth of images form an enviable archive of 350,000 photographs, some of which appears at the Gallery between February 6 and March 1.
   The work includes his first race at the Nürburgring in 1962, taking portraits for his final exam at the Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Photographie, before he set up his studio 18 months later. From 1970 he began shooting only in colour. He has attended more than 500 Grands Prix, including taking candid pit and trackside shots.
   Schlegelmilch tends to rely on natural lighting rather than digital enhancement. His work has been published in, among others, Auto Revue, Auto Motor und Sport, Powerslide, ADAC, Sports Car Graphic, Car & Driver, Road & Track and Car Review. Philip Morris, Mobil, Shell, Champion, Mercedes, BMW, Tag Heuer, DHL, and Red Bull are among the clients who have featured his work.
   Louise Garczewska, Director of Getty Images Gallery, says, ‘In the run up to the 2014 F1 season, we are delighted to represent this iconic collection and bring it to a wider audience through this latest touring exhibition.’
   The Getty Images Gallery is close to Oxford Circus, London, and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 12 to 5.30 p.m. Saturday.

Candice Swanepoel makes the cover of Victoria’s Secret’s first 2014 Swim catalogue

Lucire staff/0.21


Russell James

In a repeat of last year’s choice, South African-born model Candice Swanepoel has the first cover of 2014 for Victoria’s Secret Swim catalogues, photographed by Russell James in St Tropez, France.
   The catalogue, says Victoria’s Secret, has been inspired by ‘“Angel Journey’s” [sic] to the most glamorous beach destinations in the world.’
   The trends in the collection include cut-outs, lace-up details, animal prints, and a return to simple, black-and-white designs. Victoria’s Secret also projects high-waist, frilly styles and long-line bikini tops.
   Victoria’s Secret says a video featuring the 2014 trends is up although at the time of writing, only a teaser had been put online (below). The full video will feature Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio and Gracie Carvalho.
   The 2014 Swim collection is available via the Victoria’s Secret website, the Victoria’s Secret catalogue, retail stores in the US, and its Ipad and Iphone apps. Online shoppers get a free tote if they spend US$65 online.
