Edward Enninful will receive the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at this year’s British Fashion Awards, the British Fashion Council announced today.
   Ghanese-born Enninful is a stylist and the current fashion and style director of W.
   In 1991, he became fashion director of I-D, at the age of 18, making him the youngest editor at a major international title. Seven years later, he became contributing fashion editor of Vogue Italia, and he held the same post at Vogue in 2006. In 2011, he took on his role at W.
   Enninful has also worked on campaigns for Gucci, Comme des Gar√ßons, Christian Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, Celine, Lanvin, Mulberry, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Jil Sander, Calvin Klein, Fendi, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Hugo Boss, and Missoni.
   I-D founders, Terry and Tricia Jones, said, ‘When the wonderful Simon Foxton first introduced Edward into the I-D family, we had no idea that he would become one of the most outstanding stylists of his generation. He not only brought his own talent to the magazine, but started working with hundreds of other individual youngsters at the beginning of their careers. His fashion corner in the I-D office was always a mecca for ideas and supermodel diversity became one of his many contributions to the international fashion industry.
   ‚ÄėWe are thrilled and super proud that I-D‚Äôs youngest-ever son has travelled so far in his career and feel very privileged to have known him as a teenager. Edward’s own individual talent, his absolute loyalty, his encouragement and promotion of other peoples’ careers, as well as his love and belief in diversity within the industry, is rare and quite unprecedented. We truly believe that Edward’s creative voice, experience and original inspiration fully justify this very prestigious award!’
   Supermodel Naomi Campbell said, ‘Edward is not only one of my dearest friends and brother, but he is also one of the most outstanding people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His unique talent, drive and imagination are poured into his work, making him responsible for some of the most heart quickening imagery in the history of fashion.’
   Fashion photographer Stephen Klein added, ‘Edward has exquisite taste and precision and is both sensitive to the aim of the photographer and venue without compromising either.’
   Speaking for the British Fashion Council, Natalie Massenet, its chairman, said, ‘Edward’s creative energy and level of vision captures the mood of our times: his work is original, energetic, sincere and unforgettable. His creative journey may have started in London, but today his influence spans the entire globe intersecting the worlds of fashion, art and business.’
   The British Fashion Awards 2014 is sponsored by Swarovski, Canon, MAC, Toni & Guy, Vodafone, American Express, Marks & Spencer, Mercedes Benz, Penhaligon’s, and Rightster.

Top international hairstylist Richard Kavanagh presents Rodney Wayne’s summer ‚Äô15 looks

Lucire staff/14.43

Top and centre The ‘Sunrise and Shine’ look from Rodney Wayne: cut and colour from NZ$250. Prep hair with Redken Rootful 06, blow-dry with a large flat paddle brush, flat iron for definition, and finish with Redken Fashion Works 12 hairspray. Above The ‘Dusk-oh’ look: cut and colour from NZ$280. For naturally curly hair, apply a generous amount of a styling paste such as Redken‚Äôs Rough Paste 12 to shampooed and conditioned, towel-dried hair. Hang head upside-down and dry with a hot hairdryer and diffuser attachment. Use a shine serum such as Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil for a little extra polish. Finish with Redken Control Addict 28 hairspray.

Rodney Wayne’s latest campaign, breaking this month, gets a jump on summer, with a bright 1970s pop-rock vibe mixed with an androgynous, rave-culture 1990s look, harking back to the international cultural influences of those decades.
   Entitled Do Summer, the campaign is proudly New Zealand in flavour despite its international inspirations, with Rodney Wayne’s global creative director Richard Kavanagh encouraging women to make a bolder statement this coming season with a new look. ‘The smart way to go is with fabulous hair that can take you from the pool to the party and places in between. Our latest looks are designed to help you make the most of the season in individual style,’ says Kavanagh.
   Kavanagh has driven the campaign, photographed by Steven Chee, directed by Lachlan McPherson, with Rodney Wayne’s Matt Butcher, Adrine Singh, Hannah McKenzie and Christie Beard assisting on hair.
   The five looks, ‘Sunrise and Shine’, ‘Dusk-oh’, ‘Honey Dipped’, ‘Twice the Nice’ and ‘Bourdin Patrol’, pay homage to the season, all using Redken products for preparation, finishing and protection.
   ‘Sunrise and Shine’ has been inspired by Annie Lennox and the rave culture of the early ‚Äô90s, with copper shades, using a halo technique of colouring, and shorter under-layers. ‘Dusk-oh’ was inspired by the 1970s’ soul sisters, enhancing curls √† la Donna Summer and Lorde. ‘Honey Dipped’ takes its inspiration from Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elvira Hancock character in Scarface, with a centre part and honey-dipped ends. ‘Twice the Nice’ sees braids at the core, whether they are herringbonem four-strand, French or classic. Finally, ‘Bourdin Patrol’ takes its name from photographer Guy Bourdin and the 1970s’ hyper-real styles of the models in his shoots.




Top ‘Honey Dipped': cut and colour from NZ$280. Create lived-in luxury with Redken Duo Shield 07 before blow-drying hair with a large round brush. Add a little Redken Powder Grip 03 at the roots for body and texture. Carry some Pillow Proof Two Day Extender to keep your style fresher longer. Centre The ‘Twice the Nice’ cut and colour starts at NZ$280. Redken Rough Paste 12 will help control hair while it‚Äôs being braided. Blow-dry with Redken Satinwear 02 for heat protection and light control. Bottom Getting the ‘Twice the Nice’ look: set hair on a small curling iron using a heat-active texturizer like Redken Fabricate 03 for heat protection and light hold. Once hair is set and cooled, brush it out and spray generously with Redken Forceful 23 strong hold hairspray for extra shine and hold.

Baz Luhrmann explains Gis√®le B√ľndchen’s Chanel No. 5 casting as more images released

Lucire staff/9.58

Hugh Stewart

Chanel has teased with more imagery for its upcoming No. 5 campaign with Gis√®le B√ľndchen, written and directed by The Great Gatsby (2013) director Baz Luhrmann, with production design by Academy Award winner Catherine Martin.
   The new images show the supermodel in two more outfits in addition to her surfing one shown yesterday.
   In one, again shot by Hugh Stewart, B√ľndchen is wearing a silver lam√© fringed organza dress from the Chanel haute couture spring‚Äďsummer 2014 collection, with mauve suede sneakers, Plume de Chanel earrings in 18 ct white gold and diamonds, and a Plume de Chanel ring in 18 ct white gold and diamonds. Make-up uses a similar palette, with le Blanc de Chanel, Perfection Lumi√®re Velvet and Les Beiges foundation; Cr√®me de Chanel in R√©v√©lation for the blush; les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in Tiss√© Rivoli; Ecriture de Chanel eyeliner in black; Stylo Yeux Waterproof pencil in Noir Intense and the Kh√īl pencil in Clair; Rouge Allure lipstick in Ind√©cise; le Crayon L√®vres in Mordor√© Nude to define the lips; le Vernis for the nails, in Ballerina.
   B√ľndchen’s second outfit sees her wear a black double silk‚Äďcr√™pe dress with silver embroidery from the cruise 2014‚Äď15 collection, with black satin sandals from the spring‚Äďsummer 2014 collection. She wears a Chanel necklace in 18 ct white gold and diamonds, and earrings in 18 ct white gold and diamonds.
   B√ľndchen’s choice, according to Luhrmann in the latest behind-the-scenes video, can be summed up with her multi-faceted nature. ‘She can be on the beach one moment and incredibly athletic. She has children. She has a very, very significant relationship. And yet, she has a career where she can create aspirational, sensual, incredibly glamorous imagery, and somehow, what’s most important to her, ‚Ķ is love, to really be fulfilled. And I think that’s what we try to convey in this little film.’
   He says that she has ‘a new world sensibility. I think that’s both fresh but very true to Coco Chanel. Coco brought the new era to the old world. She was the one who smashed the convention. She was the one who just hung out and was friends with the avant-garde. She was 100 per cent behind the new, 100 per cent behind possibility, and 100 per cent, in her DNA, a self-empowered woman. Gis√®le felt honoured, I felt, to be identified as the No. 5 woman. She has continued to evolve as a woman.’
   B√ľndchen follows in the footsteps of Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou, and even Brad Pitt. Luhrmann, meanwhile joins Ridley Scott, Luc Besson, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet as Chanel No. 5 directors.
   Patrick Demarchelier shot the final stills of the campaign.
   Says Chanel, ‘In this new chapter, the story of No. 5 is told in a way that goes beyond the fragrance itself. Ten years ago, No. 5 was the fragrance of a woman who decided to break free from it all and then return to reality, renouncing her desire. Today, through Luhrmann‚Äôs eyes, we see the No. 5 woman deciding to listen to her heart. She is a woman who knows exactly who she is, and is free to make her own choices and listen to her desires. The film tells the story of the modern woman who struggles to make time for everything‚ÄĒherself, family, career, and love.’
   The accompanying music is Lo-Fang‚Äôs cover of ‘You‚Äôre the One That I Want’. The film itself, to be released on October 15, has no words or dialogue.

Stradivarius, the fashion label rather than the violin brand, threw a party in Barcelona to launch its customer magazine, with Poppy Delevingne, Atlanta de Cadenet, Harley Viera-Newton and Úrsula Corberó playing host.
   The party, dubbed The Event Paper, was held in a modernist building near Gaudi’s Pavellons G√ľell (G√ľell Pavilions), with over 200 guests and Pepino Marino and Crawford DJing. De Cadenet and Viera-Newton took over from the DJs to get guests continuing on the dance floor.
   Photographer Bela Adler held a live shoot at the event, complementing guests using a photo booth. The event will feature in a future issue of Stradivarius’s new magazine.
   The four celebrities were chosen for their recognized roles as “it girls” with their own style. All wore items from the Stradivarius autumn‚Äďwinter 2014‚Äď15 collection, which the company describes as having vintage and boho design elements. The brand is available at around 900 locations in 60 countries.

IWC Schaffhausen hosted a gala dinner on Monday at the Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong with its brand ambassadors Cate Blanchett, Zhou Xun and Karol√≠na Kurkov√°, and photographer Peter Lindbergh present. IWC CEO Georges Kern played host, with Goris Verburg, IWC marketing and communication director, and Beno√ģt de Clerck, IWC managing director, Asia‚ÄďPacific.
   Earlier they had opened the Timeless Portofino exhibition, which marked the launch of IWC Schaffhausen‚Äôs Portofino mid-size watch range. The three ambassadors played a role in the exhibition, shot by Lindbergh, as did Emily Blunt, Christoph Waltz, Ewan McGregor, and Adriana Lima.
   The event coincided with the first day of the Watches and Wonders exhibition in the Chinese city, which is currently beset by pro-democracy protests demanding that Beijing fulfil its promise of granting universal suffrage for the 2017 election of the chief executive.
   Beijing, for its part, suggests that the US State Department is interfering in the city’s affairs.
   There was little sign of the concerns at the event as the 250 celebrity and VIP guests were entertained at the dinner, including Francis Ng, Anita Yuen, Audrey Ai, Jamie Campbell, Alfred Cheung, Brandon Chau, Leigh Tung, Julien Lepeu, Jeffrey Yau, Cissy Wang, Deborah Hung, and Amanda S. The renowned Shandong-born violinist L√ľ Siqing performed at the gala dinner.
   The Timeless Portofino exhibition has already appeared in Z√ľrich and will go on to London, Miami and Dubai.

A Lucire exclusive




Paula Sweet

In a whirlwind week, two extraordinary events occurred in northern Italy, both under the stewardship of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.
   On the night of Wednesday, September 10 at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Torino, a travelling exhibition showcasing the finalists to this year‚Äôs Prix Pictet launched. This year‚Äôs theme, Consumption, introduced by Pictet‚Äôs Stephen Barber at a gala reception, themes the world‚Äôs most prestigious annual photography prize. You can visit this important show at the Fondazione‚Äôs impressive and expansive space, a converted factory, through October 12.
   The following Sunday, September 14, Divine, an installation focusing on highlights from the 20th century costume jewellery collection of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, opened at Ca‚ÄôD‚Äôoro in Venezia. A gathering of local luminaries and international guests witnessed the official launch of the show. Over 400 objects notable for their history and elegance are displayed in the Galleria Georgio Franchetti, remaining on exhibit through January 11, 2015.
   In her exhibition notes, Sandretto Re Rebaudegno says she first developed interest in accessible costume jewellery designs because they represent a cultural heritage that ‘brings us back to hard times and great social change.’ But you will find they are also remarkable for their craftsmanship and inherent beauty.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve‚ÄĒthe multi-layered blended Scotch with honey tones and a woody, fruity flavour‚ÄĒhosted a party with Vanity Fair at the 71st Biennale di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival on Saturday.
   The function kicked off Rankin’s search for the next rising star, with guests including Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Blanca Su√°rez, Marie Nasemann, Paolo Stella, Eleonora Carisi, Manos Gavras, Lavinia Guglieman, Eliana Miglio, Sara Cavazza Facchini, and Bejna Bruijning.
   Guests enjoyed the function at the Westin Europa and Regina, where they saw an exclusive exhibition featuring Rankin’s photography. They also had shots taken in a luxury photo booth, which will begin its travels around Europe from September 2014 to February 2015. Rankin will judge the best from the shots during this period, where the winner will star in an online Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve campaign next year. Those who wish to participate can find out more at the Johnnie Walker website.
   In a release, Rankin said, ‘Over the years, I‚Äôve been lucky to capture many celebrities on their rise to fame. Now, in collaboration with Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, I‚Äôm looking for a new generation of rising stars, who embody the spirit and passion it takes to succeed, in whatever they put their mind to. Putting down the camera, I‚Äôve designed a photo booth which is a new and different way of shooting for me. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Through special treatments and lighting, I will capture the celebratory moments of today‚Äôs rising stars‚ÄĒI am really looking forward to seeing the results.’

The Miss Universe New Zealand 2014 finalists, currently touring Thailand, wound up their Bangkok events on Monday night with an event hosted by the Charoen Pokphand Group, a Thai conglomerate set up by Chinese immigrants in the 1920s, at the Grand Mercure Bangkok Fortune hotel.
   On Tuesday, they set off for Pattaya, famous for its beach resorts, 100 km southeast of the capital. Pattaya City put on a welcome and luncheon for the top 25, again well attended by officials, before a visit to Thai Thani, a Thai arts and culture village. Thai Thani, to open on August 8, aims to showcase its cultural parades and activities, and the finalists were given a personal tour by its owner, seeing Thai food from different regions and traditional performances. They also participated in fruit carving under instruction from Thai Thani’s staff. Nigel Godfrey, executive director of Miss Universe New Zealand, presented officials with gifts, including a framed souvenir featuring photographs of all 25 finalists.
   Four contestants had their swimwear shoots Tuesday with photographer Alan Raga, again wearing Surface Too Deep and Honey & Co. swimwear.
   Accommodation for Miss Universe New Zealand in Pattaya is at the Cape Dara Resort, where they will remain till August 7.
   The Miss Universe New Zealand 2014 grand final takes place at Sky City Theatre, Auckland, on September 18. The public will have a hand in deciding the winner, through text voting and through the electronic i-vote. See nextmissnz.com/top25.shtml for voting details. Further updates of the competition are on the Miss Universe New Zealand Facebook and Instagram, with hashtags #missuniversenz and #munz14.
